Remembering Eritrea-Ethiopia border war: Africa’s unfinished conflict

Image copyright AFP Image caption Ethiopian soldiers after taking control of the Eritrean town of Barentu in May 2000 Two decades have passed since two of Africa’s poorest countries began the continent’s deadliest border war. The conflict between Eritrea and Ethiopia left tens of thousands dead or injured in the space of just two years. But despite a peace deal signed in December 2000, the two sides remain on a war footing – their massive armies still facing off. So what happened 20 years ago to spark Africa’s unfinished war – and what hope is there that it might finally come to an end? ‘Two men fighting over a comb’ The war began on 6 May, 1998, sparked by a battle for control of the border town of Badme – a humble, dusty market town with no...

Giuliani Suggests Trump Will Pull Out of Iran Nuclear Deal

Rudy Giuliani suggested that Donald Trump plans to pull the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear agreement, pointing to the presence in the president’s inner circle of new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and long-time foreign policy hawk John Bolton. “We have a president who is tough,” Giuliani said Saturday at a conference organized in Washington by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities. “We have a president who is as committed to regime change as we are.” “What’s going to happen to that agreement?” Giuliani asked the group, one of several Iranian organizations outside the country dedicated to toppling its government. He then pantomimed spitting on a piece of paper meant to represent the 2015 nuclear accord, drawing raucous cheers. Giuliani was hired in April to be Trump’s lawyer in the...

Trump Repeats Threat of Federal Shutdown to Get His Border Wall

President Donald Trump renewed a threat to close down the federal government when current funding runs out in September if immigration reforms and funding for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico aren’t forthcoming. “We may have to close up our country to get this straight,” Trump said Saturday during an event in Cleveland focused on the benefits of the 2017 Republican tax overhaul. People in the U.S. illegally are exploiting a “catch and release” policy, Trump said. The president made similar comments on a potential shutdown during a rally in Michigan a week ago, and in a Twitter message on Friday described the southern U.S. border as under siege. “Congress must act now to change our weak and ineffective immigration laws. Must build a Wall,” Trump tweeted. Trump also said Saturday that t...

White House Blasts China for Its ‘Censorship’ of U.S. Airlines

The White House released a blistering statement attacking China’s government for a recent demand that U.S. and other airlines change the way they refer to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau in promotional materials. “This is Orwellian nonsense and part of a growing trend by the Chinese Communist Party to impose its political views on American citizens and private companies,’’ White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Saturday in a statement. U.S. airlines were among several that received letters from China’s Civil Aviation Administration calling for strict guidelines for any references to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, according to the White House. The Chinese government considers those entities as part of China and objects to references that indicate they are independent. “China’s in...
