Eritrea: Lets keep our eyes on the prize
Imagine that, 200 tanks and motorized vehicles were in a hot pursuit to annihilate you. Bombing and machine gunning you nonstop to hasten your demise. Batteries of artillary in the thousands were used simultaneously for maximum effect to turn the frontlines into an inferno.
Squadrons of Mig 21 fighters were shooting their missiles and dropping Napalm and cluster bombs. RPGs were shoot as if they mere bullets. In short, it was a rain of fire and hell on Earth. A Soviet war plan that is intended to incenerate the target area and designed to make certain that no living thing survives the onslaught.
Through sheer determination, gallantry, bravery and heroic acts, you managed to defend yourself, cut the enemy lines at their weakest points, entice the enemy to follow you with confidence and bravado to the trap you set for him for the final kill and stay alive with you command and control intact and your human and material fighting potential undegraded and ready to fight another day.
While this shock and awe type of war was being waged, the Eritrean masses were all part and parcel of the war effort. Seeing the people and the fighters fight in unison and in tandem, in these death defying loop sided war, makes you a firm believer that a people's revolution can't be defeated despite the enemy's superiority in armaments and size of its fighting force.
Eritreans were able to see beyond the horizon. They believed always that there was the sun behind the clouds. They were also aware that the struggle would be long and bitter, but their victory was certain. Compared to the challenges we went through during the armed struggle, our challenges today are just mere hiccups.
I am ecstatic and I am in a state of a political Nirvana. Starting with Fenkil, Wukaw 30, Independence Day, Bologna 40, Sawa 6th youth festival and 27th graduation and our festivals are rekindling the Eritrean spirit and Eritrean nationalism far and wide.
Above all, we paused to say thanks and pay tribute to our fallen heroes/heroines and renewed our vows and commitments to build the Eritrea of our dreams and worthy of our martyrs sacrifices.
To our delight and amusement we are watching the Eritrean traitors, enemies and detractors in disarray and in a state of mental anguish, pain and paranoia. These stinking political corpses are at war against the Eritrean people, nation and government. Like a drug addict desperately seeking his daily fix, badmouthing Eritrea is their career of choice and Isaias seems to be their drug of choice.
Like the bankrupt Greek merchant in the Greek proverb that is in the habit of moving his dwindling savings from one bank to the other banks to conceal his misfortune, the apostles of doom and gloom modus operandi are more or less the same - if not Isaias, it's the gov't; if not the govt, it's the EDF; if not the EDF, it's Shaebia; if not Shaebia, it's Sawa; if not Sawa, it's the YPFDJ; if not YPFDJ, it's our mothers ....etc..etc
Demonizing, defaming, discrediting and vilifying Eritrea, its people and govt is their blood sport. Anything and everything Eritrean is a fair game. Like a patient suffering from Schizophrenia they do it out in the open with no feeling of shame, guilt, rationality and self respect. For them, illusion is reality and once they set their own standards of reality different from accepted societal ones, than they are in the looney land and a place of no return.
War is a disaster. The human and material losses are drastic. It has the ability to tear down the fabric of a nation. It can affect the psychological makeup of the people and can destabilize a nation. There is a possibility for a nation to fail and even disintegrate. Thus, no one in the right frame of mind wants a war of any kind.
Like in the process of churning where the "churn" is suspended and swung back and forth until the foam, water, [deleted] milk and [deleted] are separated, the Weyanne war of aggression against Eritrea, despite all its undesirable side effects, had shown us like a mirror who is who in the Eritrean order of things. Thus, no Eritrean can be fooled by the wolves in sheep clothes, false apostles and messengers of doom and gloom and the Judases selling Eritrea for some Shekels.
We are watching with dismay and horror the mushrooming of the creation of failed and failing states around us. Destabilizing nations is the new form of warfare perfected by the western contractors and intel agencies. Embassies are converted into command centers and local nationals are hired to implement their evil agendas.
Economic sabotage, dis/misinformation and fabricating and manufacturing lies and deceit are parts of the game plan. With the corporate media becoming a propaganda tool of the state and special interest groups, manufacturing consent becomes so easy.
NGOs, regional and international organizations and institution are all infiltrated and financed by the powers that be. NGOs are in the frontlines working to destabilize nations.Wars are now described as humanitarian intervention, food is used as a weapon of war and NGO CEOs are the same advocates of war of past and present administrations.
It seems like every adjective in the political dictionary is used to melain Eritrea ad nauseum. But, a wise observer has the right to ask also why is Eritrea always in the eyes of the storm of the powers that be who are in the habit of bombing, droning, bullying, intimidating, harassing, colonizing, exploiting and raping nations.
The answer seems to be self evident. Eritrea was not supposed to be born. Its destiny was decided long time ago by the vultures. Eritreans defied the will of the monsters and never kneeled down and fought against all odds and overcome insurmountable challenges to become masters of their own destiny.
A destiny written in blood, sweat, tears and sacrifices is a destiny that is certain to give birth to a unified, democratic, progressive, assertive, dynamic and self reliant Eritrea with an independent economic, political and diplomatic visions of its own. Rising like a Phoenix from the sand and standing like a Citadel on the Red Sea coast.
" La musica della notte " the music of the night, was the response/were the words of wisdom given by a calm, cool and collected Asmarino, when asked by a group of Italian journalists visiting Eritrea in the mid 70s for the causes of or reasons for the nightly sounds of gunfire in the outskirts of the city of Asmara.
The Eritrean camel is marching unfazed by the incessant screams, barking and howling of mad dogs of treason, enemies and detractors of Eritrea. The Eritrean God works in mysterious ways. As always, the Treason Mafia, will never disappoint us. This time they came with a novel idea. A Weyanne sponsored Eritrean Treason Mafia's Smerr G-A-Y parade in Bologna. The abuse and misuse of the traitors by all those with sinister agendas against Eritrea is mind boggling.
