    It makes sense to demand external supporter with arms if the government is killing unarmed citizens. There is no other way to destroy tplf. I prefer my freedom to the dummie tplf’s water dam. The time has come when weyane will be thrown into the different dams.

    TPLF is waiting for answer from Egypt?Fool. Cant u get it? Djibouti’s leader visit to Egypt is one of the answers. The strengthening relation of Egypt with Eitrea is another answer. In fact u lack the maturity to understand sophisticated politics. U dont even know if Sudan is more to Egypt than to u. U are jailing muslims who demand freedom of religion and expect Djibouti and Sudan to be ur friends? And Somalia?while murdering somalis of ogadenia?

    Dear Tplf, what do u know other than killing and jailing people? Killing inocent elementary school kids. Killing pregnant women. In the present society there is no word tat can be used to describe u.You are simply subhumane, you are not welcome in Ethiopia. Whatever it takes, be it a support from Egypt, Djibouti….Ethiopian ppl are ready to eliminate u. Because u are not fit to be a human Ethiopian!!!
