  1. Write this down you commie bigots. There will never be another stupid bloody and destructive conflict between the Ethiopian and Eritrean peoples. There will never be another stupid bloody conflict between the two fraternal peoples of Somalia and Ethiopia. Are you bigoted commies writing all these down? Clashes for some barren and forsaken outpost will never outbreak between the two noble peoples of Djibouti and Eritrea. Are you taking a note of all of this you loser commies?
    Welcome back our dear Eritrean brothers and sisters!

  2. Humble Sad Commentary
    May I dare ask: What did IGAD accomplish ( in its four-teen (14) years) for any glaring benefit to Black Africa?!?!?!?!?
    Let us be frank and honest — to ourselves
    It is a question permitted by universal standard — if not by us!
    I can only say with deep sadness: WE BLACK AFRICANS ARE WHAT WE ARE …………I CAN NOT PUT, in “BLACK AND WHITE”.
    And so, we keep on going with our seemingly eternal negative image to the delight of others!!!!!
    Sad, Sad, Sad, seemingly being a part of us for our existence!!!
