Thank You TMH(Stalin)- The more I hear little sister Donat, the bitter my anger becomes knowing there are many more Donat's that were killed and maimed by Shaibya foot soldiers and Amhara expansionist. If we manage to defeat Derge2.0, Donat will have a safe Tigray and a chance for future DR Donat to live her dream.

Opinion: U.S. sanctions against Eritrea are overdue, but incomplete Washington Post Opinion by the Editorial Board
August 27, 2021 - "They raped me one after the other. ... I don't know if they realized I was pregnant. I don't know if they realized I was a person." This is how one woman described to Amnesty International her assault by troops aligned with Ethiopia's government, who have committed widespread, targeted rape against women and girls in Tigray, a state in the north of the country.
Ethiopia's Civil War, With Michelle Gavin Michelle Gavin, senior fellow for Africa Studies at CFR, sits down with James M. Lindsay to discuss the fighting in northern Ethiopia between federal government forces and regional Tigrayan forces. Indeed, the US should get ready to feed and manage not only a failed Ethiopia but a failed Horn of Africa! We have said it before but it won't hurt to repeat...Tigrayans are fed up waiting for the international community to play its role in helping resolve this conflict. Tigray has suffered enough. As the expert said, the only option left to resolve the conflict seems to be through the barrel of the gun. ሓዝ ኽ ሕዝ!!
America trapped between its national interest and its core values in the Tigray war Kalayu Abrha 08-24-21 - The key to the conduct of international relations is national interest. America puts this diplomatic formula as bluntly as: "There is no permanent friendship but national interest". All world states have their own national interests that they solicit from others, impose on others, and/or protect from others. World states also have core national values that may or may not be antagonistic or impediments to national interest.
The Footsteps of a Lion: In Memory of Meles Zenawi Elias Dawit 08-25-21 - "Our dam." Every time an Ethiopian says these words, whether they like it or not, they are paying tribute to the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi and his party. This is gravely important to acknowledge in the context of the attempted genocide of the Tigrayan people. Nine years ago this month, Ethiopia tragically lost Meles Zenawi, and along with its prime minister, the idea of Ethiopia’s potential for greatness.
Tigray Government Weekly Briefing- Aug 23, 2021 Tigray External Affair Office 8-23-21 - Briefing from Tigray government on the military and humanitarian situation in Tigray and Northern Ethiopia.

U.S. blacklists Eritrean individual linked to Ethiopia's Tigray -Treasury website WASHINGTON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - The United States on Monday imposed human rights-related sanctions on an Eritrean individual it linked to Ethiopia's Tigray region, where conflict has killed thousands of people, according to the U.S. Treasury Department said on its website.
The United States has repeatedly called for Eritrean troops to pull out from Tigray. Monday's action blacklisted Eritrean Filipos Woldeyohannes, according to the Treasury website.[If this sanction is simply on an individual it is nothing. Our hope is this sanction significance and effect is more than Flipos.]
Derg 2.0's autopsy: lessons Aesop 08/22/2021 - Derg 2.0 (2018-2021) will, as expected, end up like Derg 1.0 (1974-1991). There’s a good and bad news to this culmination. The bad news is Derg 2.0 caused unprecedented damage to Tigrai. This is also expected because Derg 2.0 is an upgraded Derg 2.0. The good news is Tigreans exorcized this evil as swiftly as possible.
Abiy and Amhara's expansionist army is getting slaughtered deep in Amhara's land. This should not have happened, but it is happening. No one is to blame except the Amhara elite that is babysitting this little dictator man. Do not blame Tigray Army because it has no other option except to continue the war since the war is imposed on the Tigrayan people. The latest report from the front line is sickening. Too many Amhara militia on top of Abiy's Republican Guards has been killed. They were Ethiopians like us besides being a human - they shouldn't have to die. Tigray Army is marching forward, and a complete victory is not that far away, according to our source!
Mean Time... Here below is a historic picture of Tigray Army female Tegadelti celebrating Ashenda at AlWuha Melash. Old Tigray proper boundary line!
ABIY AHMED GOVERNMENT vs MENGISTU H/MARIAM GOVERNMENT OF ETHIOPIA Zeyohannes Moges August 19, 2021 - The ABIY AHMED GOVERNMENT is a pedigree of the MENGISTU H/MARIAM GOVERNMENT. The MENGISTU H/MARIAM GOVERNMENT which fell on the hands of the Tigray Freedom Fighters 30 years ago and ABIY AHMED GOVERNMENT are about the same in comparison except for the following differences: The MENGISTU H/MARIAM GOVERNMENT was a communist military government that persecuted the church and attempted to exterminate Christians. It was brutal and straightforward.
Call for Turkey to Stand with the People of Tigray: The Land of the First Hijra (GSTS) - We, the Global Society of Tigray Scholars and Professionals (GSTS), are grateful to call to mind the
friendship of the government and people of Turkey with the people of Tigray including through efforts to restore our common heritage, the al-Nejashi mosque, by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA), and the support extended to Tigray refugees in Sudan
Ethiopia: Ethnic Tigrayans Forcibly Disappeared (HRW) - Ethiopian authorities since late June 2021 have arbitrarily detained, forcibly disappeared, and committed other abuses against ethnic Tigrayans in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, Human Rights Watch said today. The authorities should immediately account for Tigrayans' forcibly disappeared, release those being held without credible evidence of a crime, and end all discriminatory treatment.
Is Ethiopia Flying Iranian-Made Armed Drones?
Bellingcat and open-source researchers such as flight tracker expert @Gerjon_ were able to independently geolocate these photos to Semara Airport. We can see the similarities ourselves by watching drone feed footage broadcast in 2019 on an Iranian news channel and uploaded to the video-sharing website Aparat. Various measurements, such as the latitude-longitude meter, are arranged in exactly the same way on the screen. The same distinct crosshair can also be seen in both images. These commonalities suggest that both drones use a similar Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) software. The image below compares the Iranian drone feed from 2019 to the screen seen inside the Ethiopian GCS:
EXPLAINER: Why Ethiopia's war crisis is deepening by the day NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The United States says it is sending

A Ceasefire: Finger Pointing at the Victim is neither Just nor Acceptable! Adi Haki 08-15-21 - Some elements of the international community are unjustly putting pressure on the people of Tigray and their army, the Tigray Defence Forces (TDF), to halt their military advancement and withdraw from the Amhara and Afar regions of Ethiopia. While their desire for peace and mitigating human suffering in Tigray and the rest of Ethiopia is understandable, pressuring the Tigray people to stop their legitimate fight ...
Getachew Reda: What is the endgame for Tigray's rebels? The humanitarian suffering in northern Ethiopia is appalling, as conflict continues on multiple fronts. Tigrayan rebel forces have won a string of victories over the Ethiopian military, and Ethiopia's prime minister now says all the state's military resources will be deployed to crush the rebels. Stephen Sackur speaks to Getachew Reda, spokesperson for the Tigray People's Liberation Front. With the death toll rising and man-made famine taking hold, what is the endgame for Tigray's? This is a very timely and very important interview . The international community needs to be updated regularly. Failing to do so will allow lies and allegations take root. Kudos to Getachew for standing tall to the hard-hitting journalist. 'Ember Sanitizer!!!'
Standing on the Bones of the Past: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Ethiopia Crisis Elias Dawit 08-13-21 - During the summer of 1994, at least 800,000 Tutsis were slaughtered with machetes by their fellow Rwandans. The oft-repeated "never again" following the Nazi genocide against the Jewish people was a lie. Today, as the absence of a live audience at the Tokyo Olympics was regarded as a "tragedy," the Ethiopian government continues to inflict genocidal acts on the people of Tigray - a small region home to about six percent of Ethiopia's 110 million total population. Like in Rwanda, the campaign against the Tigrayan people began with hate speech...
