What was said then...!
“Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists”
President Bush made the following speech on Sep 20, 2001, addressing the nation and the World:
“…We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, and drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime”
Bereket said the plotters belonged to the Ginbot 7 (May 15) opposition group, saying it was linked to the Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD) headed by Berhanu Nega, currently living in the United States.
He said the government believed that the "desperado" group was not planning to stage a coup, but intended "assassinating individuals, high ranking government officials and destroying some public facilities and utilities ... like telecom services and electricity utilities...
Berhanu Nega is afraid to go back to Ethiopia! We wonder why? It could not be because of his Kinjit politics since Eng Hailu, Dr Yacob, and Prof Mesfin...e.t.c are all in Ethiopia waging peaceful struggle. It couldn’t be because he was denied an election win since EPRDF admitted they lost the city of Addis so much so the then city government held consultation meeting with Dr Berhanu and Kinjit transitional team about transfer of power. Infact he is the one that run away from taking responsibility to administer Addis Ababa City govt. So why is he afraid to return to Ethiopia? He sure looks scared though!
