Egypt - Ethiopia conflict
« on: February 09, 2020, 09:48:43 pm »
For Thousands of Years, Egypt Controlled the Nile. A New Dam Threatens That.

Ethiopia is staking its hopes on its $4.5 billion hydroelectric dam. Egypt fears it will cut into its water supplies. President Trump is mediating.
Mr. Trump, playing on his self-image as a deal maker, has suggested that his efforts might merit a Nobel Prize.

I spit my beer reading this.  Oh well.  :(

Nonetheless, interesting read.

They should give it Obama again.  That would be a first rate Trump troll.
Yeah I know Obama hasn't really done much of anything lately, but that wasn't an obstacle the first time around.
