DW TV: Interview with Getachew Reda, TPLF Executive Member- Oct 2021


 


Ethiopia A Failed State
Ethiopia is a failed state, so much so, the country has become a burning issue for the US and Europeans. US and Europeans are working hard to contain early on the mass exodus of refugees that usually follows such colossal failure. Ethiopia today is without a standing army, an economy, and a functioning government. The IMF has recently stopped predicting Ethiopia's economic future growth due to uncertainty and the absence of key economic indicators. Unheard in Ethiopia's history the country is slaughtering Donkeys for export. Donkeys are the only means of heavy-load transportation for many farmers, not to mention that they are also precluded as a food source by all major religions in Ethiopia. The country has failed miserably and has entered into donkey economics. Yet Amhara Elites think they are living in "kefta zemen".
How on earth did I spent my years with such people thinking they are like me and are good partners to build a country called Ethiopia? Way Wurdet!!

Tigray TV: Discussion with Current Tigray Army Military Commanders - Mekelle Tigray- Sept 29, 2021

The commanders have answered many of the issues raised by legal oppositions and social media activists in regard to the naming of the Tigray Army and constitutional order in Tigray. In short, the Generals/Tegadleit Military Leaders said, Tigray and Tigrayans are advanced people who understand rule of law and the role of political leadership. That is Tigray has an elected government and the government is leading Tigray Army. They also said Tigray Army is leading a popular war where everyone regardless of his/her political beliefs is participating. No wonder why Tigray has already won the battle and war at the same time!!

Damage Assessment Project: A commendable jump-start towards sustainable postwar restoration and development
Kalayu Abrha 10-16-21 - In the middle of a decisive final engagement of the TDF, in all fronts against the evil force, the Government of Tigray has launched a Project of great value, with the characteristic courage and optimism inherent in the Tigrayan psyche. Diagnosis is the key first step for successful treatment or cure. It is dangerous to make the slightest error in diagnosis because wrong treatment on the basis of wrong diagnosis could lead to death or permanent physical and psychological damage.



Ethiopia's expanding civil war: 'We see a very worrying trajectory'
William Davison, Senior Analyst at the International Crisis Group, joins Francois Picard for in-depth analysis on the escalating clashes in the brutal year-long civil war in Ethiopia.There are even reports of weaponized hunger and ethnic cleansing, among other war crimes. Further exacerbating this incredibly complex and volatile situation, Mr. Davison explains that as Ethiopia's economic situation continues to worsen
Mr. Davison may be a good man but we wish if he could also be an honest man and admit he has made a mistake before when it comes to his political analysis of Ethiopia. Most western experts, except a few of them, narrative and opinion of Ethiopia and Abiy were completely wrong. Most of them were convinced that TPLF was despised by Ethiopians and that it was finished. Willaim was one of them! Even after the Oromo Elites realized Abiy was a conman and the Qerro movement was systematically being destroyed by Amhara Elites and Abiy, William Davidson and other experts who blamed TPLF for being undemocratic said nothing. They remained convinced by the Amhara Elites narrative of Ethiopia. until a few months ago. Mr. William, say I was wrong and move on. Otherwise,...TPLF is back, KemaA Eya Zela!!





Turkey expands armed drone sales to Ethiopia and Morocco - sources

ANKARA, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Turkey has expanded its exports of armed drones by negotiating sales deals with Morocco and Ethiopia after their successful use in international conflicts, according to four sources familiar with the agreements.! Drone shipments to Ethiopia could upset Egypt and worsen the relation between Egypt and Turkey which is already strained.



The message from the president is clear. There should not be any ambiguity by any of us who support the people of Tigray as to what the mission is and what lays ahead. In short, there is no going back. Shet Meanta and do your part and spend less worrying about what others are doing.






Open letter to the UN: The Forced Return of Tigrayans on Peacekeeping Mission
Security & Justice for Tigrayans (SJT), a U.S. registered 501(c(3)) advocacy organization for the security and justice of Tigrayans around the world, is writing about a very urgent and alarming matter regarding Tigrayan members of the Ethiopian National Defense Force (ENDF) who have been on a UN peacekeeping mission in Baidoa, Somalia.

Tigray External Affairs Office: Weekly Briefing Oct 12, 2021
TEAO 10-12-21 - The humanitarian situation in Tigray remains dire. It has been 341 days since the start of the genocidal war on Tigray, and 114 days since the Abiy Ahmed government imposed a brutal siege on the region. Millions of Tigrayans are subject to man-made famine, as the Abiy Ahmed government remains committed to its policy of weaponizing starvation.








Update from the Frontline(10/14/21) - The current ground offensive war unleashed by the Abiy regime and its supporters covers a wide range of geographic areas. It involves Abiy's so-called federal army remnants and regional militia and special forces. Tigray Army is defending the aggressors deep in Amhara and Afar land. So far Tigray Army has scored multiple significant battle victories. However, due to the nature of the war, the terrains involved, and the scope of the challenges it creates, the final victory may take a bit longer. Our sources told us regardless of how long it may take them[Tigray Army] they are firmly resolved to defeat the enemy. The recent significant battle victories are good indicators to the inevitable triumph of the Tigray Army! [Aigaforum 10-14-21]




Re-imagining the Ethiopia Crisis: What the U.S. Can Do
Elias Dawit 10-04-21 - The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is in a tough spot. Every day the U.S. issues another warning about the humanitarian crisis in Tigray while its food aid sits in warehouses-unable to move because the Ethiopian government is hell-bent on starving the people of Tigray. Not even USAID's administrator, Samantha Power, has been able to move this food despite an official visit to Ethiopia where she was ignored by Abiy Ahmed. Ms. Power had accused Abiy Ahmed....

Very well articulated and reasoned suggestion on how to end the conflict between Abiy's Ethiopia and Tigray. We wish if friends and supporters in Diaspora can save their energy spent elsewhere and concentrate on the United States. Pressuring the White House to use its limitless power will go a long way than pressuring an inept international community. Way to Go Elias!!!

Participants underscored their deep concern over deteriorating humanitarian conditions on the ground and their commitment to the welfare of the Ethiopian people. .
Tigrayans are thankful for the US-led initiative but let there be no illusion - Hezi Ewin Besferina!!!.



UN recalls Ethiopia migration head over Tigray war remarks
The United Nation's migration agency has put its Ethiopia chief on administrative leave, citing "unauthorised interviews" in which she complained of being sidelined by UN higher-ups she claimed were sympathetic to Tigrayan rebels.

The lady was a scum bug herself and should not have been left there ever since the recording was exposed to say the least. As they say, better late than never!



Western officials confirmed Tigrayan reports of an assault on several fronts. Aid workers said it will intensify a dire humanitarian crisis.

The UAE-Ethiopia Airlift: The investigation techniques.
On 07 Oct 2021, I reported identification a total of 45 flights from the United Arab Emirates to Ethiopia. This article is part two of a series of two articles about this find.

The Question of ethnic identities or nationalities and within the Eritrean context - a personal perspective
Tedros Amanuel 10-10-2021 - Like most of the current states in Africa, Eritrea too was created during the European 'scramble' for Africa. It is in fact the adverse consequence of the historic Battle of Adwa 1896, the pride of many Africans, when a multi-ethnic peasant army achieved the unthinkable and wiped out 70 % of the invading modern Italian army in just a single battle! The emperor Menelik, however, hindered his victorious generals from pursuing and destroying the Italian army...,



Ethiopia's widening war could be catastrophic for millions. The U.S. needs to step up pressure.
Opinion by the Editorial Board - The rainy season is coming to an end in Ethiopia's conflict zones, which means that the fighting season could be about to begin....Abiy Ahmed, freshly sworn in for a new five-year term on Monday, has been massing government forces near Tigray,... Barring de-escalation, the consequences - especially for the 6 million people of Tigray, at growing risk of famine - could be catastrophic.

We all recognize your excellency Secretary General your full understanding of the whole context of the war in Tigray as well as your deep concern on its subsequent effects on the lives of millions of Tigrayans,



Why the U.S. should call the famine and violence in Tigray a genocide
(Washington Post)- Mawi Asgedom - Over the past 11 months, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's government has killed, raped and tortured ethnic-minority Tigrayans en masse. Will the Biden administration label these acts a genocide and impose appropriate consequences? If not, the United States will effectively greenlight genocide for any leader ruthless enough to follow Abiy’s playbook...



How to Destroy a Country: Does Ethiopia Have a Future?
Here's an easy five-point plan for the leadership of a country which has emerged from civil war and dire poverty over recent decades and now wants to destroy itself. First, pick a fight with a corner of your territory run by a previously powerful minority ethnic group. Cut off their resources. Provoke them into a response. Send in the army. Invite a neighbouring army in to rape and kill civilians and destroy their crops, businesses, schools, and clinics. Persuade the victims they are about to be subject to a genocide and promote hate speech about them among the rest of the population.



Urgent Call for Direct Aerial Delivery of Humanitarian Aid to Tigray.

The GSTS believes the desperate situation in Tigray requires immediate similar interventions to end to the inhumane siege



WHAT OUGHT TO BE NEXT US MOVE?
Ezana Sehay 2021-10-03 - At the end of the most devastating war ever [WW2], the human race made two new set of rules which are mutually incompatible. To break the endless cycle of wars we simply made it illegal for one country to attack another or meddle in others’ internal affairs. Such rule made sovereignty absolute.
