Teodros Kiros (Ph. D) 01-16-22 - Tigrean selfhood should never be compromised for the sake of Tigrean elites asking for a transitional government, at this critical juncture of Tigrean existence. This narrow-minded vision by opportunists, strategizing to come to power by short cuts, is neither appropriate or intelligent at this time.
Response to the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Ludicrous Allegations Tigray Govt 01-15-22 - For the once-venerated Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), trafficking in outright lies, distortions, and half-truths has become its most distinguishing institutional characteristic. Rather than articulating the country's national interests and tending to those interests, the MFA spends the lion's share of its time on divisive, partisan assignments, doing the bidding of the criminal Abiy regime.
Tigray External Affairs Office: Weekly Briefing Jan 14, 2022 TEAO 01-14-22 - The genocidal war on Tigray has been raging for over 14 months. In November 2020, the criminal Abiy government along with Amhara regional forces and the Eritrean military undertook a full-scale invasion of Tigray to bring the people of Tigray to their knees. Over the course of their brutal occupation of Tigray, they would go on to commit some of the most heinous crimes that are virtually impossible to imagine ever taking place in the 21st century.
Paulos Irgau. 01-15-22 - Attila the Hun, a product of a typical chauvinist world should be excused when he said, “Sacrifice is the passion of all great men” when it is equally true that it is the passion of all great women as well. Before getting ahead of ourselves though, I like the reader to consider this: Enter "Inclusive Fitness" and "Reciprocal Altruism" -- We all share fifty percent of our genetic makeup with our siblings when we inherit half from each of our parents and it is logical that we share equally what had passed on to us from our parents with our siblings...
Elias Dawit 01-09-22 Buddha says there are three things that cannot be hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth.
Beginning with his declaration of victory over Tigrayan Defense Forces (TDF) just weeks after the fighting began in November 2020, Ethiopia's Abiy Ahmed has mastered the art of dealing with ferenjis (foreigners). He lies and then he lies again. This is the fundamental misunderstanding of the international community when dealing with Ethiopia's leadership, particularly Abiy Ahmed.

Abrham Berhane 12-26-21 -This short article covers a brief history of Dr Mikael Tessema a Tigrayan who shaped early Ethiopian politics. Dr. Mikael was an intellectual that suffered at the hands of Italian fascists and was also home imprisoned by Haileselassie.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - The Norwegian Nobel Committee, which awards the prestigious Peace Prize, on Thursday issued a very rare admonition to the 2019 winner, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, over the war and humanitarian crisis in his country's Tigray region.
"As prime minister and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Abiy Ahmed has a special responsibility to end the conflict and contribute to peace," the Oslo-based committee said in a statement. It is still a mystery to many why the group decided to award the peace prize to Abiy since Abiy was not that known and Eritrea was run by a little dictator who killed his own people and country. How do you award Nobel Peace Prize to any man who makes peace with a devil? Peace with a devil is no peace but peace in hell, right? In any case glad to see the last cover Abiy Ahmed has left on his behind is removed. Aman bi Aman - the emperor is naked!!!

Bloomberg, Jan 6A Nobel Peace Prize should not shield the prime minister from sanctions for war crimes and rights abuses. Could Joe Biden become the first American president to sanction a Nobel Peace Prize winner for war crimes and human-rights abuses? As the U.S. steps up efforts to end Ethiopia's bloody civil war, it must reckon with credible reports that the government of the 2019 laureate Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed instigated the conflict and covered up gross abuses.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - China's foreign minister says his country will appoint a special envoy to the Horn of Africa region, where Ethiopia and Eritrea have been fighting forces from Ethiopia's Tigray region and Somalia is in the grip of a political crisis caused by a long-delayed election. It looks China is also getting it that its dream of realizing the silk road is in danger with out Tigray. Even if this appointment is to grandstand the U.S effort it is good to know China is realizing the power of the Tigrayans who are fighting a righteous war. China could loose more than the silk road in Africa if it does not stop supporting murderers and little dictators.
