    I bet you that demon Isaias had volunteered to el-Sisi to send one of his clunky SU29’s to bomb this dam and in the process massacre tens of thousands of workers building it. EPLF and ELF preceding it were both propped up by previous Egyptian regimes with the main aim thwarting our old country from pursuing any project to harness its Almighty given natural resources such as its mighty rivers. Are you going to try to tell me that the late Gamal Abdel Nasser was so such passionate about democracy more than a thousand miles away from his barren land? Come on man!! He denied democratic and human rights to his own people and he was worried about the people in Eritrea because they needed it? Come on man!!! He took advantage of the then existing psyche in some of the Eritrean elements then who used to think that they were more of Italians and also Arabs. Some of them here in the Diaspora still have that mentality. They think they are more advanced in modernity than a typical Oromo, Amhara, Tigrayan or any other ethnic group in the old country. Remember I said ‘some’ and did not say all Eritreans. So some of you who are fit to take a snippet out of my comment and run with your usual rubbish diatribe, I say take a cold shower or better yet jump in the lake!!! Now watch Al-Toweel’s operatives here in the Diaspora pouncing at me!!! And I love rattling their cages just to smoke them out of the woodwork where they have been hiding. Their new mode of acting is to parade themselves as Ethiopians on some of the websites among the Diaspora. You can’t even start to imagine the sheer hatred they have for our Tigrayan brothers and sisters. You will be challenged to fathom the contempt they have for my very proud Oromos. They use profanity just like candies in their comments to address others who differ with them like me. But that will be to no avail especially with this septuagenarian. When it comes to that he is as stubborn as a mule. In other words, there will be no luck dealing with him this way.
    Here is what I promised myself. The day this dam begins its official operation my family and I will celebrate it with a birthday cake. How about that? Anyone having a problem with that? Anyone? That’s what I thought!!!!
