Massawa, Massawa White and Blue I never get tired whenever I write of you Oscar Rampone 1972
Some decades back when I was flipping onto the pages of an old magazine I was impressed by the writer’s poetic skills in portraying Massawa. Ever since, the verses remained indelibly stamped in my mind and I keep on reciting them.
Free zone integration and expansion will bring benefits for the country and investors.
EXITING developments are taking place in Eritrea’s free zones, which will make a huge impact on trade and productive output in the country. Like all free zones, businesses based within the Massawa Free zones Authority and the Massawa Port Authority benefit from excellent conditions and incentives.
Eritrea’s Strategic Location along the Red Sea provides ideal exposure to one of the world’s busiest shipping lines and established linkages to other areas of the region and beyond. The port of Massawa is a transit point for goods to the Middle East, European and Asian Markets. The development of the port is poised to bring about potential gains to trade.

Following a series of successful conferences held in recent months in the six administrative regions that ended at Asmara Palace during 5-6 December 2011, one would ponder as to what will be the way forward to boost the Eritrean Tourism Industry.
The Bush administration in its eight years in power has ruined our economy and the American credibility around the world by declaring unwarranted war. Obama promising “CHANGE” was elected as president and had not made any significant changes neither to help the economic recovery nor to regain America’s good name and its world leadership. Americas economic and political might have come to be questioned. Our leaders have succumbed to “special interest” groups and gone to war for highly questionable reasons.
The nature of the major international media out lets does not allow them to cover news as they happen. They should analyze in such a way they please the special interest groups that control the wheel of the administration. In such a situation no one should expect to have the genuine and unbiased information on the events taking place around the world.
Eugene Jarecki in his book “The American Way of War” reveals how the successive US administrations provokes and manipulate other states in a bid to fill their hungry hegemonic appetite. Before and at the beginning of the World War II the US was in what it called ‘Great Depression’. And for years they were looking for an opportunity to get out of the grave situation they were in. Luckily for them war erupted throughout Europe and the Far East. The inner circle members of the administration plotted a mission that could put them not only out of depression but also that would create for them an economic boom. Going to war against Germany. Initially that did not happen because Germany wasn’t ready to fight the US. Hence another plot had to be created. Provoke Japan to hit Pearl Harbor. As the writer disclosed, the conspiracy or the lie was on how “ … we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves. “ With this huge magnitude of provocation Japan massively send its war planes to destroy the harbor. In this war the US was forced to pay around 3000 American lives. And America went to war in all fronts as its leaders wished to have.
