The making of a nation is not easy. If it were, the African nation making horrors and tragedies would have been a thing of the past.
American international policy makers tried to make the nation making agenda as their top priority. They failed miserably in implementing it. Today, the mere mention of it sends shock waves down the spines of the American policy makers.
Timing is everything. No one with the right frame of mind in Eritrea is against the implementation of the lofty ideals and programs that are enshrined in the National Charter and the constitution. After all, the long protracted struggle for our liberation than and now is to make these ideals a reality on the ground.
We have a clear understanding of where we were, where we are now and where we are going, and what type of a nation we want to build. Above all, we definitely know who our friends and enemies are. The Eritrea of our dreams and worthy of our Martyrs sacrifices is a work in progress.
Writing a constitution is not a panacea to all the world's problems. The American Natives, the African Americans and even the American women are testaments to this false assertion. Today, the African nation making tragedies and the Necon excesses are perfect examples of this fallacy.
First and foremost though, the security and stability of the nation had to be secured. With a cloud of war hovering above and the security of the nation uncertain, speaking about democracy and civil liberties is just an academic exercise.
Eritrea came out of a devastating 30 years of war of liberation. In its limited existence as a free and an independent state of less than 20 years the conspiracies woven, wars of aggression conducted, psychological warfare launched, economic and political blockades erected to destroy Eritrea and its people are mind boggling.
The government and people of Eritrea refused to be kept hostage to the evil plans and political machinations of their enemies. They want us to be always on a war footing, be a sacrificial lamb, to be handed in a silver platter, when the time is right and the situation is ripe to they ally - the fake Ethiopian empire.
Finally, no one, I mean no one, has the right or moral standing to teach or lecture the Eritrean people about the virtues of freedom, democracy, justice, rule of law and human dignity. For, they had paid and are still paying dearly for wanting to be free and masters of their own destiny.
The tragedy is that those who don't believe in freedom, democracy, justice, rule of law and human dignity are the ones that make the most noise - simply for political expediency. They are impostors and wolves is sheepskins.
The values, virtues and beliefs that made the Eritrean struggle for liberation a success are being applied now in the building of the Eritrea of our dreams and worthy of our Martyrs' sacrifices. These time tested and proven formulas are the tools we need and not the nauseating lectures coming from the disingenuous and corrupt powers that are in the habit of abusing, raping, exploiting and destroying nations.
