  1. Those of you who accused the Eritrean government of using Somalis who were sent there for military training in the war it waged to defend itself from the group of vagabonds that sent missiles raining down on Asmara, read this and eat your crow. Look at the moon and eat your blubber lips. Right on Brother Isaias, right on!!!

    Hey Brother Isaias! Remember I am taking you to court for killing 35,285,972 Oromos in Wallagaa in just 2 hours the other day. I have the list of the names of every one of the victims.
