Aesop 02/04/2021 - Why are Tigrai's persecutors crying these days? Didn't they claim that the "law enforcement" operation was over? Didn't they declare that they have executed the key "junta" leaders? Well, they are crying for two reasons: (1) They know Tigrai's center of gravity rests on the Tigrean people, and 2. They know the global narrative on the Tigrean genocide is approaching the truth. The table is turning against Tigrai's enemies!

The United Nations humanitarian chief has privately told the U.N. Security Council that Ethiopia may not have control of up to 40% of the territory in its embattled Tigray region and does not have full command of forces from neighboring Eritrea operating there.

One thing that troubles us day and night these days is that will current and future Tigrean generations prepare to revenge what is happening today? Or will it not? We fear more about the future than today! How could we let Abiy and Isaias enablers live in peace going forward?

  • Dear Aigaforum, - " ...The chauvinists from the south and the dictator from the north are on revenge. Tegaru do not do revenge. They do avenge. We did not do revenge when we won 30 years ago. will not do it now. We did not kill prisoners of war. Will not do it now either. God willing if we get there, we will make them accountable to their crimes. We will avenge the tears of our people. The verb "to avenge" means to seek retribution on behalf of somebody else. It contrasts with "revenge," which is about seeking retribution for yourself.[From our email folder]
