  1. Here goes the body count. Pretty the body count of those soldiers will be more than the population of the entire country. Good job Oromo National Army!!! No, no, no!!! It is Other’s National Army!!! No again!!! Ok I gave up!!! Ahaa!!! It is ANA!!! You figure it out!!! You see. I remember what one of my Issa friends told me in late 1970’s. He said that he was keeping tally of soldiers killed by the then WSLF army which has been christened Ogaden National Liberation Front since then, and when he summed it all up it ended up to be more than the entire population of Ethiopia. Those darn people!! They somehow multiplied again waiting to be mowed down by teflon(kevlar) donned ONA(ANA,ENA). Then in the 1970’s not one WSLF soldier was killed. There were some who were only grazed by random shot bullets fired by the ‘dastardly’ Ethiopian soldiers. WSLF captured so many Ethiopian soldiers that the entire Somalia was over populated by 100 times until there was a standing room only!!! They are not telling us the whole story about the 10,000 Ethiopian and Liyu Police soldiers they just captured. That is right!!! 10,000. Wait a minute, some one here is telling me my number is not wrong. It should be 10,000 killed and 65,000 soldiers captured. They are trying to be so humble about it. I gave up!!!!
