History has repeatedly taught us that when an irresponsible mind, tainted with backwardness, hatred, resentment and revenge, seizes power it tends to suffer from complexity and end up taking miscalculated measures of grave consequences. The US administration exploited the similarly contaminated TPLF psyche to spur an unjustified war on Eritrea in May 1998.
“…We must establish good neighborly and peaceful rela¬tions with our neighbors and the countries of our region, based on mutual interest and mutual coop¬eration. Problems related to peace and stability cannot be confined to within our borders. In order to pre¬serve the peace and harmony we acquired after a long struggle, it is essential that we strive for peace and stability at both regional and global levels, notwithstanding our limited capabilities. … Thus, in Eritrea we must choose the road that ensures social justice and real economic development. … Our economic development strategy must be based on self-reliance and the full participation of our people. We must develop our own human and natural resources and make them the basis of our coun¬try’s economic development and should primarily depend and rely on them.” The National Charter of Eritrea.
Conti Rossini, a 19th Italian sociologist who extensively studied the culture, life style, social organization and the traditional laws of the Eritrean society, described the manner of maintaining law and order and the overall culture of the Eritrean people as “a guard without a weapon (Guardia senza armi)”. He expressed his appreciation in this manner when he deeply observed the law-abiding nature of the Eritrean society by examining the various traditional laws that were used for running public affairs in the different Eritrean communities. In pre-colonial Eritrea, no weapons or police were used to enforce laws; there were no security forces responsible for maintaining law and order. Instead the respective customary laws were used for properly managing public resources and for promoting justice within the society. To this effect, outsiders who happen to witness the cumulative wisdom that has been documented in our traditional laws often tend to adore it.
“From the point of view of justice, the opinions of the Eritrean people must receive consideration. Nevertheless the strategic interest of the United States in the Red Sea basin and the considerations of security and world peace make it necessary that the country has to be linked with our ally Ethiopia.”
April 13, 2012, marked the tenth year since the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission, EEBC, gave its final and binding decision. And hence, the Ministry of Information hereby issues a series of articles entitled "A Decade of Legitimate Resistance vis-à-vis the Rule of the Jungle." The first part of this article in the series tries to cast light on the following concepts to the letter and spirit for an explicit common understanding.
So, here we are witnessing another day, which should have been a day of honor, just whiz by instead as a day of infamy because of the inept and corrupt organization, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), which has become, sadly, the playground of the only Superpower in town! Yes, a day that should have been heralding a brighter future for the peoples of Eritrea and Ethiopia, has become another causality of the political machinations of the United States coupled with the international communities’ nonchalant attitude when it comes to the interest and wellbeing of small nations like Eritrea.
The main objective of media outlets, they say, on the cover, is meant to disseminate information neccessary for humans so that they lead a normal life. Almost all corporate media outlets from the outside they claim their objective is to inform the public the truth. Two plus two is four.
