In my opinion, Egypt and Ethiopia will never going to war, period. Egypt president Mohamed Morsi currently faced an astounding domestic and foreign political problem. The same is true on the Ethiopian side. Both African dictators use this fabricated “War on Water” to divert the attention of the Ethiopian and Egyptian people from the real issue. However, for the sake of argument, if both countries ever go to the war, it’s very important to assess each country’s’ military power.

Please , all war drummers’ stop and think twice before suggesting anything. In addition to all advantage Egypt have, they have the best intelligence and ground playing field than Ethiopia. While the Egyptian Intelligence unit has lots of foreign-based experience, the Ethiopian Intelligence unit is known for spying and torturing its own citizen to staying on power. Keep it real!!!
