The cyber warriors, arm chair politicians and paper tigers who are focused like a laser beam and are wasting their mid night oil should relax and learn from the Eritrean experience.
There are always going to be drop outs, turn coats, sellouts, lost souls, traitors in the course of the revolution. Ali isn't going to be the first nor the last.
As MAO said, “A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another."
Treason is like disease, it affects the body, mind and soul. Sometimes it affects entire families and sometimes only individuals. The pain and agony that comes with it leads to a miserable, debilitating life and a long, slow and agonizing death.
PIA was once asked to explain the reasons why Shaebia was the most successful organization and a deadly fighting machine in the African continent. His response was measured and to the point.
He said that Shaebia was successful NOT ONLY because of its top commanders or correct political programs but because of the gallantry and heroism of the platoon and squad leaders in the front lines that were courageously leading their platoon and squad members into fire in times of combat.
Ali can kneel down but the Eritrean people will never knell down and this can be taken to the bank for it's proven time and again through out our proud history. I feel sorry for Ali as they say the higher you climb the harder you fall.
