It don't matter because would never raise the gun at each other through our mutual understanding.

It happens when you have the same foe.

Eritrea raised the gun against the Somali majority Djibouti right?

Never say never, specially not in a conflict region like the Horn.

No one here are true friends, the governments use each other for common interests.

About the topic. Obviously the Eritrean army, Somalia doesn't really have an army. It can't even protect it's self from different clan armies with very basic military.

It's a country with fighter jets and tanks VS different guerilla fighters with RPG's and AK47's.

dont u think its the ultimate stupidness to compare to two army for time being? its well-known the Somali-Army was one of the most powerful army in Africa. remember 1977 when Ethiopia army couldnt stop the Somali one? Dont u remember when Kenya and Ethiopia joined forces when the Prisdent wanted to take NFD and W.S by force? Ethiopians, enjoy while Somalia is in conflict, but soom all this will end and, u will soon have to face to organised Somali Army, Navies etc

A border dispute isn't raising the gun, retard. The problem has already been solved. Eritreans and Somalis are brothers

Shooting and death is more than raising a gun.

It's not smart to call someone "retard" when you are the one that's wrong.:)

I know that the dispute has been solved, for now. My point was that there are no friends in the Horn, only governments that use each other for common interests.

There are friends. Somalia and Eritrea are friends with common interest. Djibouti and Somalia are friends. Ethiopia is the friendless country who survives on external forces not even Djibouti like its and its foreign policy

i thought u wre smarter than that. if the Ethiopian army couldnt stop the Somali army from entering their land, according to u, how an eritrean would? use ur common sense. Eritrea is a friend country that s why Said Bare supported their strugle. But again, its was an stupid to compare

Are you living in '77? That Ethiopian army had Somalis in the East, Northerners in the North (both Ethiopians and Eritreans) plus internal conflict within the country going on at the same time. I am surprised it didn't fall earlier.

I thought the subject was about Eritrea vs Somalia, TODAY.

That's why my replay was Eritrean fighter jets vs Somali AK47's.

Why don't you thank me for correcting you about Djibout, even though you called Me a 'retard'? Give credit when credit is due. ;)

I guess we are talking about governments here.

Ethiopian government has strong allies with Sudan, Djibouti, Kenya and the power less Somali government.

Eritrea has or recently had disputes with Sudan, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Yemen.

Check your sources again mate.

Sudan is not an ally with Ethiopia. Ethiopia is a threat to Sudan's Nile allocation. Sudan has bad blood with Ethiopia since colonial times, when Ethiopia helped the British. Sudan is far for an ally.

Djibouti isn't a ally of Ethiopia. It wants Ethiopia to be landlocked forever,hence why it settled disputed with Eritrea quickly.

Eritrea has solved it problems with its neighbors except the ones that think it will be able to obtain its port

I've noticed that your posts is often wishful thinking and not reality.

Nile dispute is directed at Egypt, they are the one that has an unlogically big share of the Nile.

Melese was in Sudan when their leader "won" their election, where was Isayas? Sudan is soon starting to import electricity from Ethiopia. Our relationship with Sudan is healthy.

Djibouti is a strong ally with Ethiopia. 70% of their port activites are used by Ethiopia, that contributes a huge share of their national budget. New railway linking Addis Ababa with Djibouti will soon start it's construction, this railway link will even boost Djibouti's economy even more. Creating jobs and opening up larger markets for Djibouti.

Djibouti's leader and his wifey has summer houses and large investments in Ethiopia as well. An other interesting fact is that Djibouti's president is born in Ethiopia. ;-)

Djibouti will soon face competition from Kenya, a new highway between Addis Ababa-Nairobi-Mombasa (port) will be finiliezd in 2010/2011, it's already in construction. This will force Djibouti to drop it's port rates as well.

Eritrea is the only country that has beef with Ethiopia. It's funny, because the peoples in those countries are culturally closest. This proves what I said earlier

It obvious you leaving parts out of the equation.

If Ethiopia gets her way, Sudan itself would have to lose some of its share. They cannot allow this to happen, Ethiopia itself will start to import oil from Sudan. So it goes both ways. Sudan isn’t an ally, but Meles doesn’t want conflict with her, hence why he willingly gave away land chucks of land to Sudan

Djibouti isn't an ally but just a business partner. So what he was born in the Ogaden. He is Somali and his Somaliness is the reason he is in power not his Ethiopianess.

Those ports far away, still won't affect Djibouti prices, they are still not profitable and cheap as Djibouti. As long as Ethiopia is landlocked, Djibouti will do anything and make any price they want. Just look at the reason argument over Ethiopia air,

Djibouti has the upper hand and isn't a ally at all

I don't think somali was one of the powerful in military power ever in history. in 1977 the ethiopian army was very powerful in africa. it not only wiped somalian army, but also thrown out the somali government. your army was extreemly overwhelmed by the ethiopian army of the "derg" regime. it was one of the historic moments that the world will never forget, in which ethiopians demonstrated the art of war, with all their superior tactics, military equipment, and professionalism.

the question is not having war jets and tanks, but are eriterians know how to use them?? can they fight by their identity?? when considering that, somali army(rebels) is better than eriterian army. they are brave!

What's your definition of an ally then? You want the leaders to hold hand and eat dinner every night?

Ethiopia has a good relationship with both Sudan & Djibouti.

The Nile dispute is mostly an Egypt vs the rest issue. Even Melese has stated this in interviews. The other Nile states wants Egypt to cut their share, they have the vast majority.

Ethiopia will start importing all of it's oil from Sudan soon, it's the cheapest. Mean while, like I said, Sudan will start importing electricity from Ethiopia.

The Kenyan port will mostly serve Southern Ethiopia, but it's good to have an alternative, so little Djibouti doesn't try to play the big boss. Djibouti wouldn't survive without Ethiopia using it's port, the majority of their national budget comes indirectly from us. Their second biggest source of income is the military camps (Americans, French, Japanese and soon probably China).

The Djibouti - Ethiopian airlines issue has been solved. Ethiopian airlines asked the Ethiopian government to get involved. Guess what the result was? The Ethiopian airlines got as they wanted, Djibouti won't see any expensive Boeing planes from Addis Ababa as long as the demand isn't there.
