The United States is particularly concerned about the financial, military, logistical, and political support that the Government of Eritrea is offering to al-Shabaab and other extremists in Somalia. The United States and others have tried repeatedly to engage the Eritrean leadership, including with the aim to convince them to stop. But to date, the Eritreans have rebuffed attempts to open a substantive dialogue. But even now, it is not too late. The United States calls on the Government of Eritrea to seize this window of opportunity to change course.

June 12, 2009 — Any observer to the Eritrea’s tyrant activities, his bizarre behavior, the belligerent and consistent assault and insults on the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement ( SPLM) and the Government of South Sudan (GOSS), must undoubtedly – and rightfully so – assumes that: President Isaias Afworki – in actual fact – is campaigning for the Sudan’s upcoming general elections to replace H.E. Salva Kiir Mayardit, as Sudan’s first Vice President and President of the Government of South Sudan!

June 10, 2009: The UN is under great pressure to sanction Eritrea, which is the major supporter of Islamic radicals in Somalia. Eritrea is doing this to get back at Ethiopia, as the two nations are disputing a patch of desert on their border. Eritrea is controlled by a dictator who runs the country like it's North Korea and doesn't care what the world thinks. Iran supports Eritrea, with cash, weapons and the use of key allies in the UN (like China and Russia). Thus UN sanctions are unlikely, although Western nations running the pirate patrol may be persuaded to blockade Eritrea. The UN will do nothing, other than call for donations, to keep the killers and potential victims fed.
