      If there was one colonial treaty, let the colonized and the colonialists worry about it. Because those who went through colonialism are still under the influence of sub-conscious colonialism, sadly, thinking it might still work. Our (Ethiopians) message for them is “it’s 21st century”. With regards to the LA Times assumption, they too were under colonialism and writing as if it’s working today. They should know or understand better why the US celebrates 4th of July. Regardless, the GRAND RENAISSANCE DAM will go on as planned and started, no looking back and all should know that, including LA Times poor writers who are illiterate about history.

    We’ve already started the long journey and still keep going and no one gonna stop us from building the grand renaissance dam, just no one! Not Egypt, not Sudan. We have the right and the ability to utilize our own resources and not supposed to ask any one’s permission. We the people of Ethiopia are so eager to see the Dam finished and proud to be part of the shift. We’ll make history and amaze the world because it is the time to do so. I am proud to be part of the shift.

    Dear Egyptians, our current brothers and sisters the likelihood to be our near future enemies,

    Engaging a war with Ethiopia is not like as gathering in Teheran Square and make slogan, it is a matter of changing Cairo from existent to nonexistent. It is not simple as that some of your expert thinks. Think about it.

  7. Solomon says:

    We have no intention to do bad to both countries • but we do for our enemy poverty . Infact as every researchs show its better for them and for environment to build the dam in ethiopia. We love egypt and sudan.

    Ethiopia never been tied for colonialists, & will never confined to colonialist’s unfair treaty to which our colonized neighbours are proud, I belive in fair share of resources, and peace but it is our right to develop with our own river sources. Ethiopans are giving out what they have to see this dame done, & and 100 percent sure they will give their life if any attempt against their dreams about to come. My last mssg is Dont underestimate Ethiopian Military power!!!

    It is realy our right to use our river.

  11. wise says:

    It is the rights of Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Southern Sudan, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, DRC, …. even that of Eritrea t use the Nile water as much as possible fairly. I don’t understand where the hell this selfish, stubborn and outdated claim of Egypt to take more than 90% of the Nile water comes from. If there will be a any logical critera to divide the nile water shares among these countries, it will definitiely provide Ethiopia the lion share as it sources over 85% of the Nile water. If Egypt will try to bring the law of the jungle in to this, it will only take a lasting lesson that it wil never have the chnace to apply. Don’t ever try to mess up with the Lions of Africa, just a bit of advice good boys!

  12. |The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
