Eden the difference is, the two people you mentioned who are advocating for the journalists release or wellbeing are both ethiopians. And for starters it is none of their business to be advocate of any thing Eritrean let alone our journalists or our people. And hence, I say Revolution as an ethiopian has the right to speak up for his own people and that scum bag awushaw is not Eritrean and thus need to shut his pie hole instead of worrying with matters which does not concern him. Instead as an ethiopian, he should join his brother Revolution worrying about his country and his prisoners.
You do not see any Eritrean crying over the Eritrean journalists who are in jail, just like you do not see us feeling sorry for any sell out be it a teacher, a driver, a police officer, a student or even a former tegadlay etc who happens to be in the Eritrean jails and certainly we do not need a low life citizen of another nation like awushaw to be a spoken person of what is not his. And that is not because we are not humans. But it is because we believe the interest and the security and the safeguarding of our nations comes before any Eritrean individual's interests.
Eritrea just like the rest of the African nations is not yet equipped with a flawdless working judicial system as we know it in the west. All the stuff which goes with it... infrastructure, prisoners transportation, numerous judges, lots of lawyers, defenders and prosecuters, educated jurors, money and above all time to waste, when we have a bigger fish to fry. Besides in Eritrea we almost know each other and we know who is who and what is who doing to hurm our nation and that is enough eye or ear witness we need to not only put our internal sell out journalists or any Erirean for that matter in jail, but even hang them in public.
So, I say to you, quit comparing apples with oranges.
If I am correct, you are ethiopian. And if you are, you too need to put a cork in your azz hole and discuss your country's miseries and problems with them two brothers of yours and leave Eritrea for us the Eritreans, because not a single Eritrean is screaming his/her lungs out for the realease of your prisoners. They are yours and do what ever you wish to do with them and let us be.
And what do you mean that awash is anti Isayas and Revolution is anti meles? Why are you trying to validate your stupid thread by giving credit to a none Eritrean as being anti Isayas? Who gives a sh***t on not only what awaushaw thinks but who give a hoot on who you or the president of the USA thinks about our leaders?
Man, you people never cease to amaze me. Why can't you see Eritrea just like you see Kenya, the Sudan and the rest of them? When are you going to cut the left over cord we cut and left at the border? By now we really thought you did burry it, just like we did 21 years ago. You still are hunging to the "Kwanta" Beef jerky?
As you said if you are a concerned citizen of the world and you want to help the realease of prisoners, then goddent go the Cuban, Russian, Nigeria, Colombia, North Korean, Chile, Argentina, Chinese etc forums and fight for their journalists freedom too. Because them prisoners of those nations are as foreign nationals as the Eritrean prisoners when seen by ethiopians. Why do you love us or care about us more than the rest of the world? So, Eden, I say no thanks, we are not going to join you on your cause for the release of your journalists and I command you not to worry about ours.
