Ethiopia to Deploy Naval Base in Eritrea
Ethiopian officials have stated that a French-built Ethiopian Navy will be centered in Massawa, Eritrea, soon in the upcoming days.
Degu - If we can have an Ethiopian Navy with Eritrea's cooperation, why did we "fight" then? I am saying we should admit most Ethiopians/Eritreans died in vain.

Having said that, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Many things remain consistent even as changes happen.

If the two countries can agree in such "security" issues. Trade should be a cake walk! 8)

This news is bogus, to begin with.

As for the port issues, If you think that was the main reason for the start of the mayhem of 30 years, then you need to re-read some history books. Port issues, are easily solvable.

The main reason is, and as Foster Dulles himself clearly stated: "US interest in the Red Sea basin." That "US interest", had Eritrea almost wiped out off the face of the Earth by the Soviet Union, during the Cuban missile crises. The "Qagnew Station" & the listening post- "Radio Marina"- were on Soviet's target, incase an all out war broke out.

If one asks why the US didn't directly try to come to a deal with the then leading personalities in Eritrea but opted to go the Ethiopian route instead, has in my view a lot to do with Israel's overall foreign policy. Ethiopia, Turkey & Iran, were considered allies by Israel and vital for it to come out of the: "arab encirclement." Haile Selassie & Roosevelt had a meeting in a war-ship, & the rest is history.

This & issues like this, made the Eritrean People a sacrificial lamb at the altar of regional & world politics.

Unless there is guarantee, there will not be any significant investment between the two countries.

You need Bankers that guarantee payment in case regime changes and nationalizes.

Ethiopia had to pay through its nose for factories nationalized by Derg without compensation.

African regimes can change anytime.

If the two countries decided to have Economic integration and agreements in "security" matters, I say kudos to them. Djibouti has several "security" agreement with few countries and still is independent.

You never cease to amaze me though! Has Eritrea ever been a country before 1991?

If your answer is NO then, no one "sacrificed" you by putting you back where you were before you were colonized by others.

The truth is, your greedy selves wanting to secede created the stupid wars that "sacrificed" Ethiopians/Eritreans in vain. There is nothing we can do about that now.

Why blame the US or USSR then, when they may have done you a favor by respecting your elders then, in joining them with their forefathers mother country?

Why would they think "independence", something you never been, was going to be better for you? Only you can imagine such a thing!

No black person other than an "Eritrean" would imagine it.

The woman you hate, Dr. Susan Rice couldn't imagine it, if her life depended on it!

I know you don't understand!

" Under the supervision of Eritrea" that is the buzz word. In that case, it may be Ethiopian Navy in form, but it will be Eritrean Navy in substance. :lol: In the military language the line of authority ends with the President. Is the French President conspiring to sell Eritrea to the highest bidder ? :lol: I hope Zmeselo is right. I don't want to see a modern warship staffed with the Ethiopian Navy and Ethiopian war planes parked in Massawa. It goes without saying that the people of Semhar would be very uncomfortable with Ethiopian flags soaring in the Massawa skies. :roll: Hey, Ethiopian Navy could be on time to celebrate the Fenqil Annual festival. I hope this is a bad dream.

Dawi, yes Eritrea was a country before 1991. An Italian colony- yes- but a country, indeed. A highly industrialized one even, in comparison to other colonies. Eritreans have contributed blood, sweat & tears in establishing it. Ethiopia gave up on it by signing 3 treaties, even AFTER its victory in Adwa. The British took it over after the Italians & within a 10 year time, weakened its economy by dismantling & selling its valuable infrustructure, planned to divide it in half- and join each half- to Ethiopia & Sudan etc. Through stiff Eritrean resistance, the plan failed. It's the same Brits btw, who brought Haile Selassie back to power & bombed your weyane uprising to smithereens, back in the 1940's.

Later, they handed the case to the US & the US through the UN & with clear contradiction as to what the Eritreans wanted (total independence- according to a UN cesus) decided on a Federation, which later Haile Selassie breached, triggering the 30 years war.
