  4. Hello All,

    I am an Ethiopian,

    What the hell you are talking about frendship??? please stop nonsense ideas like this. There is no frendship any more between Ethiopia and Eritrea!!!!!! Every thing is gone! and already gone!! I am wondering why Teddy is telling us this stiupid idilogy upon us. If I can manage to talk to Teddy Afro, I will argue with him to stop such crazy things. What we have to do is we have to remove all rubish Eritreans from our land. We are in peace with out the situipid Eritrea and their bulshit government!!

    Close University and go to Sawa, where you are learning fighting for nothing!!!
    Stuipid Eritrea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Teddy is married to an Eritrean wife same as his highness Hailemariam Desalegn. For the rest of us Ethiopians that try to co-exist with Eritreans peacefully our kindness get taken for weakness by eritreans all the time. Eritreans in the diaspora act like our friends until they see an opportunity to bring out their hatred towards us.It never fails when we take our guards down thrusting them they bring out their vicious hate towards us.San Jose , Oakland , San Francisco and so on which is called the bay area got the most number of Eritreans outside Eritrea so I know what I am talking about.Basically Eritreans are our “freinmy”.
