  1. Personal agendas never work, when you have a collective willing to out wait you until the truth comes out!
    Kudos to the truth seekers, and Kudos to anyone that has felt any injustice in their lives.
    Typical – First Amnesty International was exposed and now UN SEMG.
    No WMD’s , what are we to believe? The quote of tell an lie often enough and it will become the truth has no bearing on Eritrea.
    The lies keep looking desperate; Ethiopia blames Eritrea anytime some goes wrong, the UN makes reports from thin air.
    Taking a break from the media of nonsense!

  2. This shows the UN is a nest for rapists, looters, embezzlers false info peddlers; these are men who look good and talk good, but truly so, they are morally bankrupt, devoid of any humane nature and our world is in turmoil because of these men who behave like a beast on loose.

  3. I also demand Susan Rice Resign. This woman need to go away for us African to have peace.

    We need Susan Rice to go away. I can’t stand this woman. What did she do to stop the Genocide in Rwanda -1994. The Rwanda children will hunt her down for ever. I hope this woman does not go to heave. She need to go to hell.

    Obama is not going to bring change because he has not changed his inner-circle.

  4. What ever happen with SEMG, Eritrea is the worst government in Africa. Our brothers and sisters are telling us by running out of Eritrea in thousands every month. Please don’t try to sugar coat it.
