Stop repeating faked history you went there as slaves to work for free not as kings as your qes historians like to put it,you also said you invaded Yemen!thanks to the Romanians who put you thier to protect the interests and establish a christian kingdom and stop the yemrni jewish from spreading over there,you said Abraha burnt meca to the ground,really? Is this how aba qeshi historian told you?well the truth is your Abraha went to meca to destroy it because it was top trade centre and he failed to establish a successful business centre as meca was so he decided to destroy it (the jealousy is in your gen)but he was killed with his all soldiers and elephants by the protector of meca before even put a foot on it, a hugh birds came with stones and dropped it on every soldier and all were dead but few who went back and told the story but your religious leaders ordered these remained people to be killed to kill the story with for KALEB (wael) was an Yemenyan tribal king (beni bekr or called qabaeil wael) who conquer kingdom after he killed a king (his brother in law),but before that he took a risk to save his lover who was about to force married hassan a Yemenian king and won his lover back by killing the king and then declared he is the king and he changed his name to kulaib(not as you want to steal it by changing some letters),so please stop misinforming the fourmers the way you qes did to you.
the bad thing is you write history they way it suits and in your language only which is hard to chalkenge you and correct and the poor misinformed ethiopians keep repeating engna engna and that 3000 yrs crab,wake up

As the late PM told you no fear of any one because this is 21st century. But let it be wise and discuss the issue on a table. who is getting what and who lose what scientifically. Most of the time Egyipt fear evaporation from the dam buri would like to ask you does the river Nile flows in a closed conduit? Think twice before you drop once

I wanna to tell bad news for our enemies if they want to be enemy with us.I am 20 years old but am an u heard from our back history we Ethiopians were not defeated by our enemies forever.Therefore first of all you have to kill 80 million people before attack the dam,otherwise your Aswan dam may be at risk &.....

If Egypt attempts to bomb our dam, then she will awaken the sleeping giant to rip her all the way up to down.And, Khartom will also be burnt to the ground as payback.

This news is fake, there is no planned attack on ethiopian dam. this ethiopian dam will benefit us in sudan, and we support it. if we wanted to attack these habasha then we would do it on our own, we have a stronger army, better weapons, stronger economy we would burn ethiopia to death just like in the 1880's we aint need those egyptians up there.

a war between egypt and ethiopia won't benefit sudan, but sudan is not gonna be a battlefield. if they wanna kick each others ass then they should fight somewhere else lol. as long as our sudanese interests are not effected we will stay out of this. our president already sent ethiopia milions worth for equipments needed for the dams :/
