    Ethiopian Counsel-General Brigadier General Berhe Tesfay??!!! Really?? Nomads have no history and do never learn from shared experience; each little town in Ethiopian occupied Somali land (Dhagahbur, Qallafo, Jigjiga, Wardhere etc.) was always at the beginning occupied by one or two Ethiopian soldier who as the head of the spear of a long plan of assault, did the ground work for the future garrison. Ethiopia annexed Reserve Area from former British Somaliland as recently as 1954 and wants one day to occupy rest of Somalia. Until such day, let idiots dream about a fictional republic on the horizon.
