Ethiopia got plenty water but the children of the Blue Nile are thirsty  

I just got done washing my dishes, I took a shower, using lot
water, and this is what I do every day to maintain my civilized way of life. And because water is an essential matter in all life whoever got it in plenty shall have prosperity, shall have fewer problems on earth, Ethiopia got plenty water but the children of the Blue Nile are thirsty with no water to drink, were deprived of bathing water. 

 The Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile. The White Nile is longer and rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source still undetermined but located in either Rwanda or Burundi. It flows north through Tanzania, Lake Victoria, Uganda and South Sudan. The Blue Nile is the source of most of the water and fertile soil. It begins at Lake Tana in Ethiopia and flows into Sudan from the southeast. The two rivers meet near the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.

While the Egyptians children have abundant water to quench their thirst, plenty of water to bath with and to play with, they had no clue where the water came from, leave a lone the name Ethiopia as the source of the water they drink, isn’t funny of Egypt? I realized that’s why Egyptian politicians those other days flagrantly dispelled my country name, reputation, with upset stomachs, intoxicated minds vomited huge amount of blood in their cabinet meeting that would take an enormous amount of time for them to cleaning and sanitized diplomatic relation with Ethiopia. And I believe things are not going to be the same anymore.  The damage to our country reputation is already done; no amount of apology can wash the dirt away or fixed the damages to our rips. 

I looked at the history of civilizations of the antiquity:  the Romans, the Egyptian, the Mesopotamians, Axum, Timbuktu, all these civilizations died out because of lack of water, and because of endless cycle violence.

 The question is how many of us would like to go Timbuktu, or to Axum to visit or to take a residence there. Why many Ethiopians want to go Europe or America, what 's the reason for huge influx of our countrymen wanting to go to oil rich gulf countries of the middle east? Why? Is it economic problem or political problem?  The answer these question is that, yes they go to America, Europe to take part in the economic prosperities of both Europe, America,. They also see green pasture from across the Middle East; they flock there to take part in the management of the green pasture in the Middle East. Yes our country is poor not because we do not have resources but because our natural resources were mismanaged by the failed regimes in power previously which care not for the wellbeing of their people. Yes the answer is no one dares to go to Timbuktu or Axum.

How can you prevent human trafficking, the outward migration of Ethiopians like these one sitting, to chart into unknown horizon they ever known.

 There is no civilization living and thriving over there except some few areas where there are wells available. The rest is none whatsoever. Where there’s no water there’s no political stability, there’s no economic, cultural prosperity, and therefore no civilization so to speak.  I bet those chicken headed Ethiopians who are the bedfellows of the Egyptians know this for a fact, but careless because they had ill-fated political agenda, nothing but political prostitution  as one can assume; they would do anything to gain power at any cost. I bet many of these folks were from rural area of Ethiopia, where their mothers, sisters whom they left behind travel several miles every day to fetch waters for drinking. Let alone everyday water for bathing.

 By the way what are these Ethiopian extremists? Why they act the way they do, shamelessly?  In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle states that murder, theft and shamelessness are inherently bad things.  In his view murder takes away life, theft takes away property, shamelessness takes away liberty. In other words, if you act in a shameless manner with no respect for the freedom of others you deny them their liberty.

 Look at the Diasporas demagogues from Ethiopia, what are they preaching the most?  To me most of them preach hate messages filed with venom against other ethnic Ethiopians.  Many of them were thieves from the old draconian regimes, very self-centered, have no respect for the people of Ethiopia, they had no respect for the constitutions even under the best circumstances. No they don't care they are rotted remains of the old authoritarians, of the totalitarians orders. These are defeatists, numbed, paralyzed, out of the picture, just like fish out water gasping for air to survive. Just like fish out of water if no one put them back into water they are condemned to die on the sand.
