THE ELEPHANT BLOCKING PEACE

Today is the 10th anniversary of the EEBC Delimitation Decision. According to the Algiers Agreement of December 12, 2000, EEBC delimitation and demarcation Decisions are final and binding. In an impartial world, in a world free of destructive elephants, a decision that is "final" would give no excuse for running away from implementation under the cover of "dialogue", and a decision that is "binding" would imply nothing but an obligation to adhere to the letter and spirit of the signed agreement. But thanks to the big elephant and the weakness of the international community, neither of these two words can now be taken to mean what they were intended to mean. A treaty that was beforehand agreed to be "final" is now not being taken to mean "case closed" but "open to manipulation". Welcome to the contradictions and hypocrisy of the elephant's world. The minority regime in Ethiopia is nothing but a parasite atop of this elephant's trunk.

ERITREA: DEMARCATION DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED

In May 1998, Ethiopian troops fired and shot on an Eritrean platoon on routine duty along the border town of Badme killing several of its members. The Eritrean government's response was one of patience and a resolute determination to resolve the matter peacefully. However, the minority led Ethiopian government's response was a declaration of an all out war on Eritrea under the pretext that Eritrea had invaded undefined Ethiopian territory that later was concocted as "Badme and its environs". The minority led Ethiopian government had hoped a war with Eritrea would give it the legitimacy it had failed to achieve domestically through its divisive and ethnocentric governance.

BE IT FOR THE LOVE OF PEACE OR THE FEAR OF WAR UN: IMPOTENTLY ALLOWING ILLEGAL OCCUPATION

Ten years after the announcement of the EEBC Decision Ethiopia is still occupying sovereign Eritrea's territory. As if that is not enough, Ethiopia continues provoking Eritrea while the UN is impotently watching the illegal action. Despite all the hostility it is pleasing to see that Eritrea has clearly stated that it has no plan of being provoked in to a meaningless war.

ERITREA: 10 YEARS OF ETHIOPIAN OCCUPATION AND AGGRESSION

The Independent Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) delivered its final and binding delimitation and demarcation decisions on 13 April 2002 and 30 November 2007 respectively. Emboldened by the diplomatic, financial, military and political shield and support it receives from the United States and its allies, the belligerent minority regime in Ethiopia continues to militarily occupy sovereign Eritrean territories, including Badme, the casus belli of the Eritrea Ethiopia border conflict in 1998-2000.
