    Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, The Guardian and National Public Radio have all written or aired a program about human rights abuse and the coming May election in Ethiopia this month alone.

    The interest of foreign medias is mainly due to the coming election or selection. The Diaspora Ethiopians activism since the stolen election of May 2005 for free, fair and transparent election finally has also got the attention of these foreign medias.

    The new Oppositions back home, the UDJ and Blue Party, the Diaspora media, ESAT, role in the ongoing struggle is well covered on these foreign medias.

    The role of Isaias Afeworki the dictator of Asmara on the coming Ethiopian election / selection is seen only in the eye of TPLF and some Diaspora oppositions. All failed to convince Ethiopians back home and in the Diaspora.

    TPLF had made it clear for sometimes now if you do not dance to its tune you are an Isaias agent. Some Diaspora oppositions and their Websites might have endorsed this TPLF slogan by default. Their main issue now is what Isaias said on ESAT not the struggle back home. They declare that the struggle Must be for a regime change both in Asmara and Ethiopia. This only remains to be an empty slogan hardly to be taken seriously by foreign medias let alone by Ethiopians who are struggling for free, fair and transparent election !!!!

    What are you banging on about?

    People oppose Shabia/Isayas not because woyane tries to link anyone that opposes them with Shabia, who they fought together with to dismantle Ethiopia and still have blood ties with, BUT because of the anti Ethiopia deeds of Shabia/Isayas since its inception.

    Fool me once shame on you and fool me twice shame one me!

    Go ahead, play the fool again.

    1ኛ። ጉዋደኞቼን በሙሉ ስረግማቸው ለኢሳያስ አፈወርቂ እንግሊዘኛ ይዳርግህ ነው የምላቸው። እንግሊዘኛውን ስሰማ ያሲን አራፋት ከሞት የተነሳ ነው የመሰለኝ።
    2ኛ፣ ኢሳያስ አፈወርቂ ሲያወራ የነበረውን ስሰማ የሶሾሎጂ ሌክቸር የሚሰጥ ነው የመሰለኝ። እንጂ አንድ መሪ ብዙ ማውራት የለበትም ብዙ ሲያወራ ብዙ ስለሚሳሳት ።
    3ኛ፣ ካኪ ለብሶ፣ጉርድ ሽሚዝ ለብሶ፣የለማኝ ባርኔጣ አድርጎ ለመታየት የፈለገው የኮሚኒስት ባህሪው ነው እንጅ እሱ ሱፍ ቢለበስ እንድያውም ፕሮቶኮሉን በመጠበቁ ይከበር ነበር። ድሮ እነ ማኦ ሴቱንሀግ የቻይናው መሪ የገበሬውን ስሜት ለማስነሳት ለማዋጋት ከገበሬው ጋር አብረው ግስላ ያጬሱ ነበር ይባላል። ችግሩ ያለው አለባበሱ ላይ ሳይሆን ኮነሴፕቱ ላይ ነው።
    4ኛ፣በቃለ መጠይቁ ላይ የእሳት ጠያቂዎችም ተርጉዋሚውም ይደነቃል። ግን ግንቦት 7 ከኢሳያስ ጋር ሲስማማ ኢሳያስን ውደዱ፣ሲጣላ ደግሞ ኢሳያስን ጥሉ ብሎ ነገር የለም።ይሄ ከሆነማ የወያኔ አመለካከት ሊሆን ነው። ወያኔ ከኢሳያስ በተሻረከ ጊዜ የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ ፅንፈኛ፣ነፍጠኛ እንደተባለው እና ሲጣላው ደግሞ ሽብርተኛ እንደሚለው ማለት ነው።
    4ኛ፣ሶስቱ በአዲስ ቮይስ ቃለመጠይቅ የተጠየቁት ስሜታቸውን በስነ ስርአቱ ገልፀዋል። ለእሳት የተከራከረው ድምፁ ሆላንድ ያለው ይመስለኛል ዝም ብሎ ነው። እሳት 100% ትክክል ነው ብሎ ያምናል እንዴ?። ጠንካራ ጎኖችን እያየን ነው እንጂ መንግስቱ ሀይለማሪያምንም ሊያደናንቅብን ፈልጎ ነበር እኮ።
    5ኛ፣አማራጭ መንግድ የላችሁም ብሎ አንዱ ከላስቬጋ አወራ። እነደሽክላ ይህችኑ እየደጋገሙ ማውራት በቂ አይደለም። አማራጭ ስለሌለ ብለን እንደ አውርም መደናበር የለብንም። በእኔ አመለካከት አማራጩ ይሄ በኮሚኒዝም የተበከለ ጀነሬሽን ሲያልፍ ነው። ኢሳያሰ ከመለስ ይሻላል አይደል፣ መለስ ከመንግስቱ ይሻላል አይደል፣ እነዲሁም በተቃራኒው ተመሳሳይ ባህሪ ያላቸውን የሚያወዳድር ጀነሬሽን ሲያልፍ ነው አካባቢው የሚሻሻለው። አንዱ ለፓውሎስ ኞኞ ድሮ የጠየቀው ጥያቄ ከቤልጂግና ከምንሽር የቱ ያማል ሲለው፣ ፓውሎስ ኞኞ የመለሰው ቅመስና ተመልከተው ነው ያለው።
    6ኛ፣ባጠቃላይ ውይይቱ ጥሩ ነው እኔ ብቻ ያልኩትን ተቀበሉ አይሰራም።
    7ኛ፣ኢሳያስ አፈወረቂም ሱፍ ይልበስና መጀመሪያ ራሱን ያሻሽል፣ከዛ ቤተሰቡን ያሻሽል፣ከዛ ሀገሩን ያሻሽል፣ከዛ ኢትዮጵያን ያሻሽል። በተቃራኒው ሱፍ ለብሶም እንደመለስ ዜናዊ ስለሽሮውም ስለበርበሬውም አያውራ።
