    Default Ethiopia-Eritrean conflict

    Difficult to understand, Ethiopia is maybe comparable to China (a hard left ideology long reconciled to capitalism with ongoing concessions to neo-liberalism), Eritrea to North Korea (seen as a corrupt ultra left basket case ) . Eritrea blames most of it problems on Ethiopia , the Ethiopians though seem tired of the 20 year war and sensibly want to end it once and for all . I dont know how accurate Real News are here , the report seems naieve to wonky (Ford critiqued as having a blind spot about Eritrea), though the interviewer asks some pertinent questions. For me this is yet another embarrassment for the leftside with clear corruption in both countries ruling classes https://therealnews.com/stories/a-ne...itical-changes
