    Samson’s nationalist pitch might oversimplify the issue. That Egypt wants Ethiopia not to build the dam is a fact. That there are Ethiopians who wish her disintegrate so that they become the rulers of their “tribe” is another fact. There is another fact which Samson does not mention: the EPDRF government has contributed significantly for the national feeling to take a back seat. Ethiopians were encouraged to worship the village they were born, not the contry they are from for the last twenty-five years. Especially the younger genetation brought up singing ethnic politics. Now a foreign country intervention calls upon us to embrace our nationalist flag. The government says ethnic poltics and nationalist feelings support each other, not undermine each other. True if our being all Ethiopian is the most important. No, the villages we were born are more important, according to the government politics. The Ethiopians who are willing to serve Egypt’s interest are mostly tribal politicians like the Ethiopan government. For those tribal politicians the Ethiopian govetnment raised tribe obssesed youth that the diaspora tribal politicians rely on.

    Egypt and Eritrea is the historical enemy of Ethiopia for more than century…..
    The barking dogs of Egypt and Eritrea -“ESAT/Gim7 , OLF and the Ethiopian Muslim brotherhood OMN/Jawarian” are selling themselves and their country for few dollars,
    Thanks to Meles for giving second chance to Shaebia in the Bedeme war.
    Thanks to Obama administration to let them speach hate propoganda in Media from Washington and Minisota to destabilize Ethiopia.
    President Trump should order to investigate the bias propoganda of VOA Amharic department journalists

      Be Ewnetu don’t reach to a hasty generalization. How come on earth Eritrea become a historical enemy?

      • Be ewnetu says:

        You don’t know the retired Italy soldiers Eritreans was paid pension until 1991 from Italian government for serving Italians against Ethiopia in 1935-1942 /well/? Then 30 years guerrilla and now 17 years directly and indirectly? /Beside Arabs/.

    Samson it is time for you to think and come to your mind. The TPLF (Adwa PLC) has looted Billions of Dollars from the mouth of starved Ethiopians. It has polarized the people along ethnic lines. It has provided the border land to the Sudan in order to please the Sudanese and prevent a foot to opposition base. The regime has systematically killed millions of Amharas. It is also carrying out genocide in Amhara and Oromo regions. I believe that Egyptian, Eritrean or any other colonial rule over Ethiopia is by far better than the rule of TPLF. I don’t think Egyptian, Eritrean or any other colonial rulers can commit as much genocide crime as TPLF.

    Sami you are a very true Ethiopian. I have lived in the United States a long time and well educated. I am so much ashamed of my generation, this generation. There was no such level in Ethiopian history that Ethiopian own children collaborating with its well known enemies to destroy their own mother country. There is no way we can solve our internal problem with the help from enemies of Ethiopia. Thanks to the hard work of TPLF, Ethiopia just arises from ashes. We Diasporas very well knows until recently, we were ashamed of being an ethiopian because of foreign people attitudes towards us. All foreigners looking us down thinking we are the most stupid people on earth even couldn’t feed ourselves. I have seen that first hand all the time. It is time to get back to our mind to fight our poverty. We have seen what is going on in Syria and so many other countries because of war. War is a zero sum game, no winner or loser.

    If you cant say the whole truth shut up!
    Welkait, addis master plans are the main reason!!

  11. Dangna says:

    Well said, well put, very straight forward. the main problem is the government (Precisely the separatist TPLF )
    Well the Ethiopian land belongs to the Ethiopian people, why in hell the crook government auctioning the peoples land, the stolen land for unthinkable price tag even higher than the most expensive real state in the world. who is busing this land, the peoples land. when TPLF members comes to Addis they have nothing. zero. 00000.. Ethiopian people have to pay nothing, Zero for a plot of land in a place where they families were born , because they are Ethiopians it is their land.
    The other disgusting enemies are are not those who sold their soul and ass to Egypt, but it is their followers and supporters, either they have to an Ethiopian or an Enemy solder. Just like TPLF that benefited 100 % support from Arabs and at the end make Ethiopia land locked to the delight of Butros Gutos Galie then secretary of the United Nation and put Cairo into Nirvana. Now we have another one like Ginbot 7, OLF who are serving as Egypt. They are not Ethiopians and just like TPLF followers who are not Ethiopians because the are still aspiring for liberation . Tigrean People Liberation Front. For TPLF the current crises in Ethiopia is a blessing in disguise because Ginbot 7, OLF are doing its work and obligation be serving Egypt.
    for now I agree
    (1) We have to put our differences aside and defeat Egypt for good
    (2) The government must resolve the Ethiopian land issue, an Ethiopian is deffind by its Ethiopian land ownership, nothing less, the rest of government talk is bullshit.
    (3) I don know what the speaker is thinking, when he says I did not get a Sq. m of land from the government, are you joking or are you that damn fool, do you thinks we Ethiopians are that stupid to believe what you are trying to do, or intended to to convey? Hello the TPLF government stole Ethiopian land it only gives away Ethiopian land to false Ethiopians, Got it?
    Egypt is Egypt it is a condemned land by God, it does not need Ethiopian wrath to burn like hell.
    For now “We have to reject the TPLF ethnic agenda and Ginbot 7 prostitute ass” . and Stand as one Ethiopian for Ethiopia, at least for once we have to march hand at home and in hand around the glob, telling Egypt don’t even think about it. to tell the the truth I think I am dreaming too much, it is gone a be a miracle if Washington DC or any other western city resident Ethiopians will come out to denounce Egypt. perhaps this may happen to applaud Egypt’s firs historical aerial strike on Ethiopia.
    But it will not happen. Never.
    No offence Mr. Samsong Mamo I do truly agree with you in most of what you said but the land story does not hold water, I am just saying ok, The TPLF government never ever give land it steels land fro the people.

    Dergu temelese: you are not Ethiopian, you are Arab dog. I hate TPLF but you Dergu temelese Arab dog burn in hell.

    Samson, I 100% agree with you on the fact that we Ethiopians have to wake up to defend the country from the evil being orchestrated by Egypt and Eritrea. Now, even south Sudan is on the bandwagon to destroy us. what you fail to mention and which is our government through its intolerance to opposing views, rampant corruption and very divisive propaganda that gradually destroyed our age old social fabric and eroded the pride of being an Ethiopian. Ethiopians are loosing their hope for equal treatment and fairness. when that happens, people are looking for outside forces to releave them from the burden of their own government. Therefore, the Ethiopian government has to have the grasp of the seriousness of our internal problems and take actions that will alleviate the existing psychological,moral and economical decay of its citizens. Ethiopia needs peace more than any country in the world. However, we will regain our peace if only if the government is taking an action that will unite the people and stop divisive political propaganda and waging hate among Ethiopians. way too many people are hurt by the current corrupt officials and if the government is serious about reform, all these criminal gangs has to be brought to justice since they are the main reason for eroding our pride in ourselves. The other thing the government should do is preparing Ethiopians for the upcoming showdown with anyone that threatens our peace from far and near since it seems inevitable. Ethiopia has to arm itself with the most sophisticated weapons money can buy. preparing for war can be the only way to keep our external enemies at bay.

    Ethiopia never seen worse enemy than tplf in her history.

  15. Girmay beyene says:

    Sami, It is mind boggling and there is no justification for some of our brother working hand in glove with Egypt government which is working hard to dismantle Ethiopia by all means . how can those groups will bring democracy and prosperity they claim by associating with the country that oppose the very existence of Ethiopia. Does the end justify the means? Their end is by no means noble or honorable. if the Egyptians succeed their grand plan , there will not be Ethiopia but i am sure there will be mine states who are fighting each other . i don’t see any rational in this issue . but Sami the people that makes you wonder why they doing this to their own country are consumed with hate rate and unable to see the danger of their action as a result of this they will not be able to listen and evaluate their action to people like you instead they out-rightly dismiss them as wayane. Having said that Ethiopia will prevail . Egypt will miserably fail, it is only a matter of time . Ethiopian has the capacity and capability to handle Egypt immature geopolitcal game .
    i am very proud by the government officials who are handling the situation with Egypt with maturity and integrity. in regard to our domestic issues the government has to work hard to weed out corruption and bad governance

    Long live to Ethiopia

    Samson, don not appologise for your TPLF. Do you know that your TPLF fought to make Ethiopia a land locked country? Do you know that your TPLF gave a huge piece of land to the Sudan? Do you know your “beloved Melese ” stole the Ethiopian victory by signing a document of betrayal in Algeria? Do you know that your TPLF was assisted by the historical enemies of Ethiopia to come to power? TPLF is a criminal gang and a killing machine. Do not scare Ethiopians when they are trying to regain their God given rights.
