          Osayres you idiot Shabiya you must get out of this website, hey guys I saw letter by Girma Seifu to Ethiopian speaker of the parliament, Abadula Gemeda. It is good letter but, the last one is a little bit fishy, until Habtamu comes back he will not go out from the country. That’s upto Habtamu to decide to get Assylum, which definitely do it, if he get a chance. That’s not the point here, the point is he is in the court process. I have never seen for Kintarot, you need oxygen to breath. The hospitals must use their proffesionalism correctly. Abadula is not dum getting him to clash with the law. This do nothing dude did nothing, when he was in the parliament except bringing the ajenda of the diaspora opposition parties. You don’t need out of the country medication. And when he finish his court case he can go.

        Just to remind you who is the masters : Do you know how many maids I have ? Do you know who was my shoe polisher ? Do you know who was carrying my groceries ? You guys are dying with inferiority complex. Just care about your country and leave Eritrea alone.

      Birhan Arif gitm new. When you said why are you concerned about Eritrean? You right to say that but why your terrorist leader training anti Ethiopia elements inside Eritrean territory. I know that people are flocking like crazy every week by 4000 in number, that is because they love Ertrean leader? Ethiopia should block the boarder to stop the influx of ertrean refugees. To be honest I don’t trust them.

    Ato Zerihun do you remember when your maverick midget died, your esteemed comrade in arms the mad man Simon Bereket- remember him (unfortunately he is a bad seed from Eritrea but nurtured with false hope and dream of Ethiopia he is/was neither good for Ethiopia nor for Eritrea) while the chi Wawa was on his last bed i.e. coffin your comrade was he was denying it and now Woy-ane boys are in mass suicide thus talking about HE President’s death , what a funny creatures are woy-ane boys.

    Mr Zerihun rest assured we will be present to bury you 3 meter under which is good riddance!!

  5. Geytse Siyum says:

    Because of this garbage person & the so called eritrean DIASPORA MEKERA BEZIHUNA

    WHILE ERITREAN YOUNGSTERS OCCUPIED REFUGEE CAMPS ALL OVER THE WORLD THIS PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING GARBAGE THINGS.

  6. us with us for us says:

    What the Tigrigna kings and Queens of the time in Eritrea are going to do when the eminent worst crisis officially arrives in Eritrea, gets in charge and selectively targeting them for revenge reasons for the crimes they have been doing for decades against other Eritrean Ethnic groups and the neighbors including Ethiopia in their names? Is that as usual escaping to Ethiopia; the country particularly they (Tigrignas) badly affected her for decades and fought and voted to leave her? Are Ethiopians continue accepting and welcoming them despite they have been the main leaders, fire starters and destroyers causing all those crimes and damages against us, in the name of Eritrea?

    There are horrible and unexpected dangerous eminent near future events on the making and will be landed in any moment in Eritrea for full scale implementation with the Iraqi, Libyan, Somalian, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syrian and the likes Stile because of the wahabbi absolute Gulf dictators and their western creators, guardians and backers are together busy to do the same thing in Eritrea as well with goal to make the red sea an Arabian lake. We will see if that will happen easily and successfully but lots of damages including in the region with no vision how to solve it as it will be in Yemen the case for generations to come but failed state with plenty little states based on religion, clan, race, Ethnicity and many other differences within. Who is responsible for? Of course who else other than the wahabbi absolute Gulf Dictators being totally dependent and relaying on the west (CIA and MI6).

    Arabs are always good enough for hate, divisions, unjust war, savagery, cruelty, chaos, destruction, barbarism, killings and anything associated with demons and evils throughout history. Wahabbism itself is Satan in person with its full of demonic and evil spirits and barbaric behaviors against the innocents and Good God’s children. Oil and gas that are damaging the natural earth environment and causing all sorts of sicknesses and death are like oil and gas on the fire when it comes to the Arabs. They are using them to worsen the existing situations and none stop creating the none existed ones instead of using this opportunity for good and positive purposes for them and the rest as well.

    However, they are not really humans but demons and evils in humans’ body being the main reason about all hates, divisions, wars, chaos, destruction, killings, mass refuges, displacements and enormous sufferings including in the wider ME working together with their globalist and imperialists masters created them decades ago to use them the ways they are doing together for the sake of power, domination, money and influence.

    —-

    This is how a good interview looks like. Ato Zerihun is among the Ethiopian political scientists he knows what is talking about based on fact and realities on the Ground with vision and predictions in the future.

    The Eritrean future after issayas is more uncertain and dangerous than most of those are talking and writing about thinking they know it and are certain about it. When we do talk about any country, we are talking the people living in. Without the citizens, there is no country but land that is part of the Earth. When we come to the Eritrean people, its history and relationship with Eritrea, it is all different than many people think they do know about.

    A tiny Eritrea has 9 Ethnic groups. Namely: Tigre(the majority and 100% Muslim where ELF came from), Tigrigna(where EPLF came from and almost all Shaba including issayas and anyone that is representing , talking and doing anything in the name of Eritrea belongs to). Beja, Kunama, Red sea Afar, Saho, Rashida, Bilen and Nara. The vast majority Eritreans are Muslims. There is no the history of living together as citizens in one nation among the Eritrean Ethnic groups as we all know the country has started administrating itself violently and savagely only since 1993. As a result, people are leaving and the country called Eritrea will be empty with human beings except the Shabia thugs and their Tigrigna backers. The name Eritrea is officially given to her in 1902 by the Italian colonizers as the master gives his name to the slave to declare the ownerships on him/her despite her name was Bahire Negash.

    Eritrea is created not to be an independent nation with legitimate reasons but a fence to block Ethiopia from the sea knowing during that time sea coast was the only gate way to the outside and best opportunity for travel, trade and development because of it was the only means of transportation alongside with undeveloped railway. During that time there was no road, cars, planes and other modern national as well as international transportation Facilities. That is why they created Eritrea to use her as a tiny and very long fence parallel to the sea to block Ethiopia to weaken her politically, economically and morally as well; working together with the Wahabbi Arabs including in 1993 at UN under the Egyptian general secretary for only one term; seems he was there just to fulfill that.

    Just look at the north eastern part of the Ethiopian map to see and understand easily how intentionally they blocked Ethiopia from the sea. And the same time look at Jordan, Democratic Congo, Iraq, and many other nations, how they got the sea coast line despite their main territory is far away from the sea and ocean while Ethiopia is too close to the sea more than 1000km long but blocked from the sea. Don’t blame Italy for that but the Tiny evil England, USA and France that are run by the Zionists/Jews working together with the absolute wahabbi Dictators.

    Saudi Arabia, UAE and other wahabbis are now in Eritrea in the name of fighting the war in Yemen. Issayas is facilitating them for the crimes they are committing against the innocent Yemeni people and causing huge damages including half of the Yemeni people is now dependent on food aid and the country is heading towards hell. Yemen is now becoming the hot bed for breeding all sorts of Sunni/wahabbi terrorists thanks to the wahabbi Gulf dictators supported by CIA and MI6 and also as some are says by Israel, too.

    Mark my point. After issayas’ disgraceful end (that will happen in any moment), Eritrea will be a failed state with no vision to recover from. The worst victims will be the Tigrigna that are the only ones causing all sorts of crimes and troubles against Ethiopia for decades. EPLF and Shabia together with issayas are their products.

    The saddest thing is that they are the once in Ethiopia today and they will continue flooding to Ethiopia when they get troubles in Eritrea. Are we going to accept them knowing they are on the front since the civil war and till today causing all damages, troubles and everything we know happened to Ethiopia because of Eritrea?

    You can say anything about thinking you know about Eritrea’s future after issayas but the truth is there and that is being a failed state or disintegration of Eritrea. The Wahabbi Dictators from Saudis, UAE and Qatar are now positioning to control the red sea having military basis including in Assab and matsawa in the name of waging war against the innocent Yemenis. This could be the CIA and MI6 advice to them in order to control the area indirectly using the wahabbi absolute dictators to destroy nations as they are doing in the ME and North Africa against secular governments.

    The question is what the Tigrignas that are the root causes and main players for decades in the name of Eritrea including against Ethiopia are going to do when things turned inside out and upside down against them in Eritrea? Is it as usual coming to Ethiopia; the country they hated, left and badly affected/ing for decades? Are Ethiopians dumb enough to forget and forgive them? Other 8 Ethnic groups of Eritrea did nothing to Ethiopia but the Tigrignas; this is known and must be clear to everyone. They are the ones you see them everywhere talking nonsense in the name of Eritrea including the immigrants despite they left the country blaming their Tigrigna Government and leader that is there because of them for decades including engaging with civil wars to separate from Ethiopia.

    Ethiopia must aware about the nasty Eminent situation in Eritrea which is Eritrea becoming a failed and troubled state for the coming many years after issayas and the breeding ground of Sunni wahabbi terrorists knowing the Saudis, UAE and Qataris are now taking in charge there. No one is responsible for but the Tirggnas that are keeping Shabia and issayas on power to destroy Eritrea and affect the region mainly Ethiopia. Are they continue coming to Ethiopia as they are flooding right now escaping from their own shabia when their Eritrea dream becomes their worst nightmare which is selectively targeting them because of their bad actions against others started since decades ago?

      Soon there will be no eritean because the tigrayn of Eritrean and the tigrayn of ethiopian will destroy banda colonized brain like you and,will become tigray -tigrgne.
      Just like woldaup wold mariam and Alula about nega country.
      Now I know you couldn’t sleep thinking about your master agame tigray.
      The plan is to destroy colonized brain banda eritean and get the to brotherly people to together like before.
      We have over one million tigrayn in eritea .
      You go bagge the neftgn those hale Selassie and mengstu dergawin chlideren.
      Because hammashen are most from Gjam and Gonder.

    “EBC ኢትዮ ቻይና ሰኔ 22 /2008”

    Big thanks to the EBC Journalist, camera crew, Sound truck, editor and others involved to make it happen. We are hoping this has to be the start for long and very often future coverage with similar messages in order to teach and make believe our people in themselves in order to build the nation and improve their own situation by our own best and effective efforts while working and benefiting together with the great nations like China, Japan, Italy and so on.

    Big thanks to the Honorable Ambassador and great Ethiopian Ato Seyum Mesfin for his enormous and multidimensional long standing contributions to our country including as a foreign minister during the time when the Ethiopian situation, shape and place was not nice as far as internationally. Thanks to him and many Ethiopians tirelessly efforts with determination and confidence including Awramba, our situation is now on the right truck and getting better every day. We are the only ones making or breaking it as we are witnessing in China from the educative and motivating documentary film how they shaped their none attractive and difficult situations within just 30 years efforts.

    The 21-century generation reads less but watches and participates a lot. So, EBC and other Ethiopian Medias have to have different strategies to reach the public the ways that would contribute for our nation development. Documentary films about China staring from their old history, their limitless achievements, time to time setbacks because of foreign interference and occupations and the sacrifices they have made to become the way they are today is the greatest education material, life testimony, big motivation, certain assurance and huge strength Ethiopians can learn from and do their jobs by themselves believing in themselves as the Chinese did /are doing.

    How the situation did look like in China 8000 years ago, China 2000 years ago, china 1000 years ago, china 500 years ago, china 150 years ago, china in 1920s, china in 1945, china in the 1960s, China in the 1970s, china 1988/89, china 09112001 and china today are facts we Ethiopians related to them within our situations and can learn from them to turn our situation back to the Glory as China did/doing within just 30 years best efforts thanks to the great leaders, best government policy and smart, hard working and productive people.

    EBC and other Ethiopian Medias have to have different ways of media services based on the nation needs and necessities. What we need is smart people, good policy working for us, creating jobs and improves our living conditions. In order to achieve those things the citizens need to change their backward and damaging attitudes by showing and teaching them how the Chinese changed their bad situation with education, discipline, determination, hard work and commitment to build the nation.

    Documentary films and translated books about China, Korea, Japan and the like nations are very, very important to Ethiopia including for education materials in order to make the citizens believe only with hard and good work they can change their situation and they are the only ones making or breaking their own and the nation situations.

    The Chinese civilization and modern development activities are the cleanest ones from any crimes which is unlike with the west. The western so called civilization, development and existence is started based on the 300 years long worst ever slavery crimes done in human history against any human being but it was done legally and openly as the best policy against the Black Africans, wiping out hundreds of millions natives in the Americans, Australia, New Zealand and occupying their land/continents, the brutal colonization of the world, lootings, exploitations, unfair agreements, spreading corruptions, causing divisions and civil wars in the countries within and between nations as it is going on all the time because of them. Financial institutions, banks, businesses, stock exchanges and the likes are designed to loot the world legally through economic, market and political propaganda wars and manipulations.

    But not china. They are determine, brave and smart people always defending themselves while trying to improve their situation by themselves with hard work without affecting any nation but benefiting together with co operation and agreements as it is going on between Ethiopia and china and we are benefiting enormously and we will continue doing so even deeper in all levels for generations to come.

    And the same times we are inviting and welcoming countries like Japan, Italy and eastern Europeans like Russia and other Slavic people to be part of it. We need people with clean history and behavior, useful knowledge, heart and conscious to use that Knowledge for common goods including for knowledge transfer in our country. The technology including in the modern agriculture, manufacturing and industry the eastern European are acquiring and their willingness to share it with us based on win win agreements is more than enough we are looking from elsewhere in the west that is always coming together with unexpected as well as expected bad and negative consequences as we know how things are working when they are around.

  12. us for us with us says:

    How aware we are and how closely we are watching the political, social and economic earthquake in the heart and minds of the west notably the Tiny England and USA? They are not just shaking and cracking but exploding like a volcano from deep inside out and disintegrating the ways never happen before; for sure since the end of the WWII which is for 71 years.

    The whole world knows about the nature of the Tiny England and USA politics being the main root causes of all evilness and sufferings going on in the world for the last 71 years. All conflicts, divisions, wars, destructions, displacements, refugees and you name it happening for the last 71 years are caused directly or indirectly by these two while the rest are just following them implementing the ideas coming from these two.

    If these two were not there the ways they have been, there would be only very limited conflicts within or between nations mainly in Africa and Asia. If these two were not there the way they have been, there would be no endemic corruptions, dictators, safe heavens to the criminals and their looting money and property as London is the world head quarter facilitating them, supported by the government policies. The so called third world people enormous and continuous sufferings for the last many years are the direct as well as indirect implications caused by these two involvements in internal as well as external affairs in other nations.

    They are the ones created the mother of all Sunni terrorists which is Mujahidin together with their best friends and allies i.e. the wahabbi absolute dictators in the gulf; they created, guarding and supporting them. Mujahidin was created as a wahabbi Islamic ideology tool to fight the secular government in Afghanistan; accusing it for having the socialist government; which is working for the people benefits while disallowing any religion involvement in the nation affairs. All Sunni terrorist groups that are plenty in numbers and giving birth every day to the new wahabbi terrorists are here because of the west mainly UK and USA.

    Back then, all the afghan, Yemen, Libyan, Iraqi, Egypt, Pakistan and the likes women were secular and free to wear what they want based on the weather, the place they are or duty they were doing. They were free to decide about their life and chose as they wish including their male partner by themselves. And look at what is happening to them ever since USA and UK started to work together with the Wahhabi absolute dictators to spread wahabbism in the world including in the west.

    It was difficult to find any and strange to see a woman in Ethiopia wearing wahabism/Islamism dressing in the hot sun day in the street or at office as it was not the case in the west as well. And look at the situation today almost all over the world, thanks to these two greedy they can do anything for oil and gas money including serving the wahabbi absolute dictators while preaching about democracy, rule of law, human rights including the right of women, free media and so on in other countries that are much better than the wahhabi cruel that are the USA and UK friends and allies are serving them towards the hell of the world for oil and gas money exchange

    Sadam Hussein of Iraq was their best friend when they used him to mage bloody wars against Iran in their names for more than 8 years using their weapons and military advisors. More than 1 million people killed in that war and hundreds of billions worth property and wealth destroyed between Iran and Iraq. While in the west they were busy cashing with billions as they are doing today as well from Saudi, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrein from the weapons sell and sending their so called military advisors but working to cause damages and make sure the war continues. Iraq and Sadam Hussien are none while Iran is here in the best shape she never been before for many years.

    Anything and any nation approached by UK and USA pretending they are there for good reason, in the end always ended up in failure and disaster as it is with Iraq and Sadam; they used to be his friends and allies against Iran. Libya and Ghadaffi are gone the moment gadaffi opened Libya to them and they started to kiss him and kneeling down under his feet which is the known tricks and unfair games they are playing to destroy him or anyone else that is in their mind/list.

    As many are saying they advised sadam to invade Kuwait because of they wanted to play the dumb Arabs barbaric brain against them. This way they created many scenarios that were good for them while bad for Iraq, Kuwait and Arabs in general. After the war finished between Iran and Iraq, they need sadam no more but they seen him as a great challenging force among the Arabs because of the war experience and weapons he had got with Iran. Strong, organized, determine, confidence, Challenging and fearless leaders and peaceful, hard working, competent, smart and educated people in the so called third world mainly Africa and the ME nations is something they don’t like to see happen and they will not allow to happen but destroy it before it gets out of their hand/control by creating divisions, unrests and conflicts within and wars between neighboring nations.

    The sadam Husain Invasion of Kuwait (as many says was done because of the west advised him to do so and assured him they would not oppose him including at UN let alone to wage war against him coming between Arabs supporting the one against the other) USA and UK managed to divide the Arabs the ways and it is going on till these days and will never get better for the coming decades including between Yemen and the wahabbi Saudis/gulf, between Syria and the wahabbi Gulf and between Iraq and the wahabbi Gulf, as well.

    In the name of fighting sadam to make him withdraw from Kuwait (telling them “if he is not forced that way he will invade the Saudis and other wahabbi gulf nations” to terrorize and get them in their side), the Arabs surrendered to the USA and UK plan against all Arabs started with Iraq. They have got multiple military bases all over the Gulf nations that are still there with many thousands personals including in UAE, Bahrain and Qatar.

    Not only that they managed to use the wahabbi dictators to spend billions for the UK and USA project in the region including Afghanistan since 1979. In return, UK and USA allowed them to spread the hatful, demonic, evil and terrorist doctrine of wahabism all over the world including Pakistan and the west. As a result look at the world today including UK.

    To make long story short; USA and UK joint political games in the region started during the carter era such as 1981, in the name of Afghanistan using the Mujahidin with the Saudi money and Arab terrorists(they were calling them freedom fighters while Mandela and Yasser Arafat were seen as terrorists) including Bin laden; 1991, the devastating war against Iraq in the name of Kuwait; 2001, in the name of fighting terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq in 2003; 2011 the so called Arab springs that destroyed all secular governments in the ME and North Africa working together with the wahabbi absolute dictator monarchies calling them our allies and best friends despite the whole world knows the nature of these barbaric behaviors and actions within against own citizens and against the world spreading the satanic wahhabi doctrine that is breeding the barbaric terrorists including IS, al Qaida, Taliban, Al Nusra, Boko Haram, Al Shebab and the list is long. The world is hoping 2021 will be against the wahabbi absolute dictators that are the root cause of all evilness in the world mainly ME, the West, Africa and Asia working together with USA and UK.

    However, UK and also USA are now in big crisis within. The citizens are no longer fool and continue being silent while hurting badly and eth criminals committing crimes in their names but are taking the actions that are making real differences. The Conservative as well as democratic parties in USA and the Conservative as well as labor parties in the UK are now in deep crisis never happened to any of them for the last 71 years. There is no government, ruling or opposition party in UK today except the SNP which is a Scottish national party that is laughing at the west minister from above the safe heaven at Hollywood in Scotland.

    We are witnessing how disrespectful, unreliable, liars, irresponsible, dishonest, out of touch and in general are suffering from bad, negative and criminal human behaviors those acting as politicians and taking all sorts of decisions including internationally in the name of UK and USA. They are the worst of all and wolves in sheep clothes living luxury with stolen money in villas and holding powers, own businesses and saving with billions. They are big and organized criminals for real with no human and good God feelings in them.

    UK as a nation is not going to survive knowing the great Scottish people are looking their destination with EU as an independent nation as they were for thousands years before 300 years ago. Northern Ireland will be part of Ireland as it’s is part of it naturally before 1921. The English politics that was busy causing all damages and sufferings in Africa, Asia and elsewhere is now in a big crisis and will never recover to its 71 years continues glory at the expense of the rest. The people are rising against the so called politicians but in reality badly corrupted and criminal business people they are there for money, wealth, power, influence and domination affecting other nations.

    It is the same in USA, as well. The so called the richest and democratic nation on earth is the worst place to millions of own citizens. It is jailing 25% of the world prisoners’ population while it is less than 5% of the world population. Those the vast majorities in prison are Blacks and Latinos because of their race. UK is leading Europe with the prison population despite it is a tiny nation. There are more than 370 million guns in the citizens’ hands in USA. This one itself shows how the situations is and the citizens are living and feeling with each other and how it is going to be their future as a nation while they are relaying on guns in their hands ready to shoot instead of the system that brings peace, unity, trust, harmony and good life among the population.

    The two candidates for 2016 presidential election by itself is telling how the USA politics stinks and in the greatest dangerous zones as it has been but now it is against itself as the UK politics is against itself as well. Hilary who is a life time and professional liar and the criminal Wall Street servant and Trump who is a vulgar with funny brain are the best candidates to cause the worse damages to earth, humanity and nature in general the ways never happened before. If the world has to choose among the two evils, for sure, Trump will win.

    The point is that if these two (UK and USA) are stopping the crimes they are causing for the last 71 years; many problems in the world will be solved including the Eritrean issue within and with Ethiopia. After all Ethiopia is geographically the closet and naturally with blood lines and other human activities very much related to Eritrea than anybody else. However, because of the UK, USA and their evil wahabbi absolute dictator friends and allies, we both are suffering for decades. They are the reasons from the start why things have been the ways they are between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

    We are no more wishing or hoping but we are already witnessing the deep crisis from top to down in UK, USA and their evil wahabbi dictators in the gulf. Be sure, Saudi and other gulf nations situations will not be the same let’s say within 5 and 10 years but the ways they did to others including Syria, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and so on. These three evil criminal groups (USA, UK and wahabbi absolute gulf dictators) are the only reasons why humanity is suffering including more than 65 million refuges worldwide in 2015. We also know not the people but the few where most of them are the Zionists/Jews and Ethnic English are behind all these in the name of USA, UK and the likes controlling everything where the money, wealth, power, influence and domination is.

    We are hoping, issyas will be gone soon easily without damaging Eritrea worse than he has done so far. Then the relationships between Eritreans within and the neighboring nations including Ethiopia will be restored. And that would bring ever lasting peace, unity, development and good life within and the region. And that will not only stop the migration crisis but also those immigrated in abroad will come back by their own choice for better life in their own place with their own people and to build the nation as well.

    However, the UK, USA and their evil wahabbi absolute Dictators crimes will not go away easily and simply but they will continue doing so sending their spy agents and racists trouble makers through embassies, NGOs, Charities, aid agencies, peace corp. media, journalists, politicians, business people, tourists, missionaries and so on as it is going on for decades to cause the troubles they are responsible for and good at.

    However, we are more than ready and good enough to keep us safe, well and be always the winners at least in our own place. We know, they are always capable of starting conflicts, wars and causing all sorts of damages. But they never ever win any war; Not in Korea but they divided Korea and created the two Koreans, Not in Vietnam but humiliated, Not in Beirut but forced to leave, not in Iraq in 1991, Afghanistan 2001, Iraq 2003, Libya 2011, Syria 2011, Yemen 2015, Ukraine 2014, and the list is long. They never win any war and bring peace and prosperity but destructions, killings, refuges, displacements and lots of sufferings.

    They are the ones creating, financing and behind all the Sunni/wahabbi terrorists while being around in the name of fighting them. They started to fight al-Qaida, but today, we have hundreds of types of al qaidas. They are there only to worsen the existing problems and create the new ones including when they are there pretending to help. They are vomiting lies about delivering aids to the same people/region for decades. But no one becomes self reliance using their aids. Their so called aid and support are designed to keep the people and nations/region always being independent on them which is easy to control and continue playing their dirty and damaging games.

    Death to the so called NGOs, aid agencies, Charities, peace corp., media, Journalists and the likes that are coming around by themselves behaving as the colonial mercenaries did while acting as the colonial solders were. As the 71 years old criminal political doctrine in UK and USA is in deep crisis, we are hoping the so called NGOs, aid agencies, Charities, peace corp., medias, Journalists and you name it coming from these two and others nations following to implement the Imperialists/racists Globalization/NWO criminal agenda will go away and disappear for good. They are always part of the problems; not the solutions including during the time when we think they are there for good and positive reasons doing the right things. No one but the government and citizens together are responsible and able to bring the right solution for all the citizens and guarantee the future. This has to be clear always to everyone.

    You guys are funny. When you are told to leave comment, you shouldn’t leave your thesis or history. Just leave short writting. Nobody is interested in your lecturing. Use simple words no funncy word. Nobody grade you up here. Another thing is why we talk about ERITREA? Eritrea is nothing fot us now. Why don’t we just mind our business? We are ethiopian and the topic should be limited to ethiopia. We don’t want to create animosity. Eritreans have already said they are not anymore our brothers and sisters. So why we keep talking about them over and over? They already decided that they are close to arab and adapted arabic than amharic. So why we bother them. Let them what they want to be and make sure they stay away from us.

    Saudi Arabia on the American Chessboard, Part 3 – How the Occupied Mentality Syndrome Works

    Previously I argued whether Saudi Arabia’s repeated involvements in U.S. interventions and wars stem from free national will or in response to a specific condition. For starters, in Saudi Arabia there is no national will. In Saudi Arabia, the national will is the will of the Al Saud clan. Still, when a major Arab state allies itself with a superpower that committed unspeakable crimes against humanity in almost every Arab country, then something is wrong. This fact alone should compel us to examine the U.S.-Saudi relation for one exceptional reason. As a result of the U.S.-Saudi wars, hundreds of thousands of people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia have lost their lives. Millions became displaced in their own homelands. And millions more rendered refugees.

    Attributing the Saudi policies to the bonds of “partnership” with the U.S. is frivolous. There are no bonds between these two thugs except those of business, military deals, secret plots, and wars. Proving this point, bonds such as these have no space for the American and Saudi peoples to share cultural or societal exchanges. If partnership is not the reason for the Saudi contribution to the U.S. strategy of empire and imperialism, then another reason must exist.

    This leads to three possibilities. (1) The Saudis are exercising their supreme national rights to do whatever they want. Or, (2), they are responding to inducement. Or, (3), they are complying with applied pressure. While the first possibility cannot be taken seriously, the remaining two possibilities are plausible. This means the Saudi participation in the U.S. wars —by proxy and directly—must have origins in factors other than the fluid concepts of alliance and partnership.

    By the way, yielding to pressure is not new in international relations. In the age of today’s imperialism, the U.S. use of the UNSC to impose its policies is an example. If impositions fail, then the U.S. acts unilaterally. Examples: the imposition of the no-fly zone in Iraq 1991-2003 and the invasion in 2003. In the era of classical colonialism during 19th century, Britain’s gun boat diplomacy to force the opening of China to foreign trade is another example. Again, when a nation succumbs to another nation, that succumbing is never ordinary.

    I also argued that succumbing to power is the result of protracted material, mental, and emotional processes performing as one element. From this premise I went on to coin the term: Occupied Mentality Syndrome (OMS) to describe such an element. Unlike other forms of mentalities (national, group, personal, and so on), the mentality I am debating is atypical. Driven by subjective factors but influenced by politically construed constraints—real or imagined—, this mentality has special traits. It competes with ideology, it conforms to pressure, it lays the blame on others, and it discards accountability.

    Although such traits may not appear all at once, the presence of any one of them in a given situation is a reason to suspect that an OMS is lurking behind. Most interesting, those afflicted by this syndrome accept what comes next as a normal outcome of free deliberation. This is an anomaly. It is so because those who endorse it only calculate value versus detriment.

    But calculations gutted from analysis, congruency of purpose, or the study of variables lead to contentious decisions. It is no mystery that decisions with far-reaching negative consequences impacting others could lead to tension or even open hostility. How does the Saudi regime get away from the impact of their decisions?

    The usual act has been to reject any responsibility without discussion—as it happened with Iraq’s war against Iran. In doing so, the Saudi takes the clues directly from Niccolò Machiavelli. Explanation: after converting the deliberation process into a justification procedure, the Saudi regime moves to the next phase: conferring legitimacy to already made decisions. Here is how they do it: make the decisions appear as if they were the result of (1) the collective national will—through the regime’s talking heads, preachers, and media—, and (2) purported adherence to the “Islamic Sharia”. The bogus legitimacy ruse that ensues is ludicrous. A tyrannical and obscurantist regime has now the authority to move forward with its decisions by calling on its citizens to observe a Quranic verse—taken out of context—calling on Muslims to obey their rulers.

    To test the validity of the OMS concept, let me reprise my argument about how the Iranian Revolution and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan shaped the mindset of the Saudi regime. Although the outcome of the 18-month long anti-Shah demonstrations was predictable, it, nevertheless, caught the U.S. and Saudi Arabia unprepared for his downfall. With the Shah gone, a psycho-political “drama” unfolded. The United States lost one of Nixon’s two pillars (the other is Saudi Arabia) in the Middle East; Israel lost its only ally in the Muslim world; Al Saud lost their inner confidence. The mere idea of a Khomeini-style revolution sweeping Saudi Arabia was enough to induce convulsive spasms in all those concerned with power, money, and oil.

    Afghanistan was a different story. While the United States was mostly concerned with the Soviet power and on how to respond to the invasion, Saudi Arabia was literally terrified about the potential spread of “godless” Communism. . . . Thus was born the “special relation” between U.S. ruling circles and a reactionary, absolutist clan.

    What do we understand from the U.S.-Saudi relation?

    Marked differences between the U.S. and Saudi polities make it intuitive that such a relation is no more than an opportunistic convergence between two regimes. Said differently, what we have here is a forum for massive business encounters and ideological boasting that both regimes struggle to call “alliance”. Generally, in the pre-9/11 period that relation had two sets of motives. While the American set is trite—empire-building, hegemony, oil, wars, and Israel—, the Saudi’s is issue-focused. (1) The clan must have the absolute primacy over Saudi life and society. (2) The clan defines its quest for security and survival in U.S. imperialistic context. That is, whatever the U.S. needs, the Saudi regime can supply in exchange for the clan’s needs.

    It would be interesting to imagine the following scenario. The subject is Afghanistan. Was it ever possible for the Saudi regime to pursue a course independent from the objectives of the United States policy because they run against the legitimate interests of the Saudi people? To debate this point: was the spending of over $3.2 billion (indexed for that period) on the anti-Soviet Afghan war of any benefit to the Saudi society?

    Let us make another supposition. Because Al Saud think of their clan as being the most powerful on earth, then a pressing question comes to mind. If they were that powerful, why did they not take alternative measures to counter U.S. pressure in the decades before 9/11? For instance, they could have purchased technology, weapons, and advanced commodities—and even “protection” from any industrial country other than the United States. [1] Or, with all the money they had, they could have started an autonomous national industrialization process like that of India, Iran, Turkey, China, South Korea, and others.

    Ironically, even if the Saudi regime had the means to undertake that process, it would not have moved to implement it. Explanation: advanced statecraft mechanisms leading to independent decision making in any sector of the national life are unavailable because of the despotic nature of the regime. Not only that, but achieving sovereignty means also sovereignty for the people. This would surely curtail the power of the clan due to increased popular participation in the setting of national priorities.
    Let us consider another point: the Saudis have always bragged that their “alliance” with the U.S. is unbreakable. This has an implication: the preventive imprisonment of their critical judgment and free will. Explanation: while the Saudis are unwilling to break with the U.S., the U.S. can discard them at will and play them at any given time—as it happened recently with the story of the 28 pages never published from the 9/11 report. Tentative conclusion: from the clan’s perspective, it appears that whatever the U.S. wants can be addressed and accepted. Still, my earlier supposition that Saudi Arabia had the means and will to be independent from the United States has merit, It means, any U.S. pressure on the Saudis for burden sharing would be useless if the Saudis resist and go somewhere else for their needs.

    If a counter-argument suggests that the Saudi spending in Afghanistan was worth it to deter a potential Russian aggression, then a reasoned rebuttal could be as follows. Fact 1: we know that the U.S.-Saudi relation revolves around deterring hypothetical “threats” against the kingdom. Fact 2: but we also know that neither the USSR, nor any other regional or international power has ever threatened to attack or invade Saudi Arabia. Amusingly, the only rumored threat of invasion came from Saudi Arabia’s “ally”, the United States (and from Britain) consequent to the Arab oil in embargo in 1973. Conclusion: Al Saud had no impelling reasons to finance the U.S. imperialist enterprise in Afghanistan—even if they loathed the Soviets.

    My argument: the Saudi regime has been concealing the primary motive feeding their “alliance” with the United States. Yet, it is not that difficult to guess what the clan thinks. Being a superpower with massive Zionist and Israeli influence, the United States offered the best guarantee for the survival of the regime on two fronts.

    On the domestic front, the U.S. may help the regime survive if domestic unrest becomes unstoppable. The American-authorized French intervention to quell the Mecca uprising in 1979 is an example. As for The Zionist and Israeli component in American politics viewed from a Saudi angle, this is intuitive too. Like all Arab regimes, deluding themselves that the U.S. has a sovereign Arab policy, the Saudis thought of their U.S. relation as a buffer against America’s ally and protégée: Israel.

    Furthermore, whereas Saudi motives are clan-based, those of the United States are system-based. This means, they are global, rationalized, and originate from how the ruling circles view the role of the United States in the world. Still, motives need forces to have effect. Consequently, the motives of a political state are the same motives of the ideological and material forces that drive it. For instance, in post-WWII United States, such forces worked as one construct to drive the purpose of U.S. hegemony. The economics, politics, and ideology of militarized capitalism, imperialism, colonialism, and Zionism are a few examples of such forces.

    I mentioned colonialism as a force in the making of the United States. Does this apply to the United States of today? Here is how I see it. With military bases in over 160 countries, with bases count ranging from 761 to 900 plus, with a military personnel in excess of 156, 000, with a land mass of over 2,202,735 hectares (approx. 5,443,076 acres) occupied by the U.S. military, and with $150 billion annual budget, the United is not but a global colonialist power whose bases are nothing less than outposts for a colonialist enterprise in progress. See deployment map in the article: These are all the countries where the US has a military presence. : I included several links to the issue of bases because some data differ from one source to another. Besides, the cited articles could offer an integrated view of the subject.

    Three motives define the course of the U.S. power. These are (1) the determination to expand the spheres of U.S. influence, (2) the relentless intent to dominate geostrategic regions, and (3) wars as economic enterprises. How does the United States implement its domination project? The U.S. has an impressive array of tools and gadgets. Limited sampling: planned hostility, military interventions against countries resisting U.S. demands, wars against independent-minded countries that U.S. rulers love to call “rogue states”, seizure of foreign assets in the U.S., economic sanctions against “disobedient” states, applying U.S. laws on foreign states, dubbing adversaries as terrorists, harassment of big rival powers . . .

    If examined in the context of classical colonialism, the U.S. domination of Saudi Arabia has all the signs of a colonialist dependency model. In this model, the periphery depends on the center in a way designed to consecrate the primacy of the center. But Saudi Arabia has never been a U.S. colony. This is true but irrelevant. The changing nature of modern dependency uses revamped practices. In one such practice, Washington makes the decisions and Riyadh implements them as if it were its own. The examples of Libya, Syria, and Yemen are instructive.

    Keeping this in mind, I contend that many facts of the U.S.-Saudi relation point into the direction of multiple forms of dependency. The U.S. as a “protector” of the clan, massive Saudi purchase of U.S. arms, financial deals, and U.S. military presence in the kingdom are just the most prominent forms. One crucial aspect of the relation deserves stringent analysis. The U.S.-Saudi “alliance” goes beyond dependency, beyond petrodollar deposits, beyond investments in the U.S. economy, beyond the purchase of weapons, and beyond buying of treasury bonds. I am referring to a subject often overlooked: Saudi Arabia as a destructive interventionist tool in the hands of U.S. imperialists and Zionists.

    To recap, stating that the U.S.-Saudi coupling is an alliance makes no sense. The alliance notion has different requirements, defining clauses, and formal obligations. Not even the claim of partnership is valid. Partnership takes its name from concepts such as equal sharing of burden, profits, and losses. This is not the case between the United States and Saudi Arabia. What we have here is an opportunistic platform between two different regimes pursuing separate agendas.

    Again, prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union, U.S. aims included the opposition to Communism, containing Arab hostility to the U.S. and Israel, securing cheap oil, and providing basing rights for the U.S. military. On the Saudi side, preventing potential Iranian-style Islamic and progressive national revolutions in the region was the top concern. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, things changed. Generally, while the Saudis are obsessed with keeping the status quo in their regional milieu, the Americans are maneuvering their regional marionettes and intervening directly to alter the socio-structures and political assets of the entire region known as the Middle East.

    Countless facts during the past 35 years attest that Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy coincided with or was in response to U.S. world agenda. As a result, we can draw a preliminary conclusion. From 9/11 forward, the disoriented Saudi regime has been devotedly executing what the United States wants it to do in exchange for not complicating its life. With that, Saudi Arabia has become the material accessory and financing tool of the United States and Israel to remake (destroy) the Arab homeland according to the U.S. and Israeli plans. Iraq, Syria, and Libya are examples.

    It is natural that an event such as 9/11 would have traumatized the clan and drove them to panic and despair. This is not only due to the nationality of some of the alleged attackers but also because Wahhabism, the creed of the Saudi state, has taken a post among the accused. For one, 9/11 worsened the socio-political instability of the clan and amplified their notorious arrogance. But 9/11 alone cannot explain the real reasons behind the intensified proclivity of the regime for violence toward the few remaining Arab states that still reject U.S. hegemony and Israeli settler colonialism.

    However, in Saudi contest, the principal effect of 9/11 was “surgical”. It exposed the ugly face of Saudi barbarity by externalizing its warring enmity toward Iran and any Arab nation that opposes U.S. hegemony and the criminal practices of the Wahhabi state. That proclivity for violence and that foaming anti-Arab and anti-Iranian enmity were the means with which Al Saud thought they could placate post-9/11 United States and appease Israel in the process. Involving the Saudi ruling family in 9/11 was a master stroke of a strategy. With it, the United States has skillfully exploited the primal fear of the Saudi regime from losing power. And just like that, with one unsubstantiated accusation, the United States seized the grand moment—the prey was ready to be devoured.

    It is beside the point to state that analyses meant to explain post-9/11 Saudi actions and policies must consider the determination of the Saudi regime to take whatever is needed to appease the United States. After 9/11 the Saudis thought they could silence the hyper-imperialist bully by withdrawing their recognition of Afghanistan under the Taliban rule. It did not work out. Then they moved, as requested by the United States, to cut off funding to religious organizations and Wahhabi-inspired schools in many countries. It did not work out either. Afterwards, they offered King Abdulla’s initiative to recognize Israel. Still, it did not work out. . . .

    Here is what the crude mentality of Al Saud failed to comprehend. The appeasement the hyper-empire was thinking of was much wider, much deeper, and has no end—it is the unconditional Saudi willingness to play along with the U.S. plans and strategies.

    I maintain, therefore, that explaining the Saudi post-9/11 wars and interventions against selected Arab states is ineffective without proper investigative tools. What we need are approaches that would enable us to see below, above, and around the appearances of events.

    Another significant outcome of 9/11 was tangible: the transformation of Saudi Arabia from an American “ally” into a near hostage pliable for blackmail. For instance, the Saudi regime voiced concern and even some opposition to the planned U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. Still, they were unable to stop the U.S. from using their territory, airports, ports, and military facilities for that purpose. But when the invasion took its course, they mightily supported it. This is duplicity, of course; but I do not have to debate that such behavior says more than it could hide. Simply, it indicates fear from opposing U.S. moves.

    I hold, therefore, that the radical change in Saudi Arabia’s post-9/11 regional conduct (the war against Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iraq; the harassment of Lebanon; the anti-Iran bellicosity; the tryst with Israel) was not in response to pressing Saudi needs, or to sudden wakening of the regime’s dormant “democratic values”. By extracting meanings out of statements, and by reading deeply into the cumulative consequences of the Saudi actions and their purpose, the answer should dispense with theoretical uncertainties. That is, those radical changes were in response to U.S. pressure or other forms of hard persuasion including implicit blackmail.

    In which way did Iraq’s war against Iran confirm the U.S. scheme for the Middle East? What role did Al Saud play in that war? How does all this relate to and corroborate the occupied mentality syndrome?

    Thanks for your thoughtful comment. This is precisely what I have been saying.
    Let eritreans be who they are, and live the life of their dreams, which is :- making troubles, always under the thumbnail of some foreign influence or another, always bandas and slaves, a none trust worthy two legged animals. When they were under the colony of fascist Italy (willfully accepted to be colonized ) eritreans were only allowed to be educated up to fourth grade, that is it! and that is because, so they can communicate with their fascist Italian masters. As far as the eris are concerned, they mind is still under the Italian colony, leave these human garbage eritrans alone, guys!
