  1. The problem of Ethiopian politics is the macho type thinking of all politician who are struggling and governing the country. No politician in Ethiopia has a good caliber of thinking with certain radius of the majority Ethiopian feeling rather than seeking a shortcut for power gripping. One thing which I do not understand is if people or group of people can not agree in common problem and solution when they are in equal terms i.e. without having muscle (military force or police ) then if one of from the same groups get the power definitely the recycle of civil war would not stop. All parties has to think for a moment on the equation of how to stop the recycle of civil war of the country instead of formulating of the power taking formulas only.
