The End Is Near for the Ethiopian Regime
The End Is Near for the Ethiopian Regime
The Tigrayan revolution is a total failure. The march from Dedebit to Dedebit had already began. Dedebit is the birthplace of the TPLF and certainly it would be its final resting place i.e. if the Tigrayans are kind enough to allow it.
Tigray is at a crossroads now. The dream of Abbay Tigray is dead and buried thanks to the wise, experienced and farsighted Eritrean leadership. The Enver Hoxa, Albanian communist dogma following political adolescents had to be brought back to the real world of modern politics kicking and screaming against their will.
After the Eritreans handed the keys to the Menelik Palace to the thankless Weyannes, what followed next was an Ethiopian nightmare. Ethiopians had to endure the indignity of being ruled by the uncultured peasants - a minority of a minority Tribal Junta suffering from an inferiority complex laden mindset with no moral or ethical compass.
Ethiopia became a de facto a Tigrayan colony. Ethiopians become aliens in their own homeland. Everything and anything in Ethiopia were put on the chopping block. Women and children were sold to the lowest bidder. Land was leased for US $ 1.38/hectare/year/century -a deal of the century indeed.
A claim of an economy at 12% annual growth per annum, on an auto pilot and on cloud nine turned out to be a voodoo economics existing only in the figment of their imaginations. The reality on the ground was the mushrooming of toxic condos, perennial shortage of water and electricity, National Bank full of fake gold and an Apparatchik on a looting spree of more than 12 billion dollars.
Ethnic Apartheid and Article 39 became the laws of the land. Ethiopia become balkanized into ethnic enclaves and Bantu lands. The divide and rule policy of the colonizers were applied mercilessly in Ethiopia to weaken and squash dissent against the barbaric leadership by the Ethiopian people.
Ethnic conflicts were systematically encouraged, genocidal massacres became tactical acts of deterrence, mass resettlements became political tools, food aid and rape became weapons of war and hunting political opponents like wild animals became routine signature actions.
The Ethiopians had made their choices clear in the 2005 elections. They voted enemies to throw the Tribal Junta out of power. 200 youngsters had to be slaughtered in the streets of Addis in a broad day light while the international media cameras were recording the events. Even, the US Humvees were used to terrorize the peaceful demonstrators.
50,000 young Ethiopians were imprisoned in the Dedesa concentration camp. They were saved by contaminated blades purposely to infect them with the deadly HIV virus and many were eaten by alligators. The deafening silence of the international community was astounding.
Oromo forests were torched and multi-nationals were given a free hand to operate without environmental safety standards. Today, the environmental degradation of Oromia is a national emergency. The Oromia waters and springs are contaminated and people are getting sick.
The crimes against humanity rap sheet of the Tribal Junta is long. As if the Gambella and Ogaden massacres weren't enough, the Ogaden camels were injected with toxic serum to destroy the fabric of the Somali society. Tigrayan prostitutes infected with the deadly HIV virus were sent to the "Mahel Ager" as a population control method.
War of aggression against Eritrea was declared to win some Ethiopian die hard nationalists and as a cover up to its atrocities and barbaric acts. It was a disaster that took the lives of hundreds of thousands of young recruits used as "Fenji regatches". The tragedy is that the coward peasant Weyanne commanders were shooting at the young recruits from behind and sending them to their early deaths.
The most cruel of them all is the feeding of all Ethiopian children born after the Border War with salt mined in Tigray without the proper international standards. These were meant to hurt the Eritrean economy. Eritrean salt mined from the sea has Iodine added to it as per the international standards. The Ethiopian Iodine deficiency epidemic is out of control now.
The government in Addis isn't an Ethiopian government but a surrogate, puppet and stooge of the powers that be. It has none of the Ethiopia's best interests at heart. It's ink on an intensive care pampered and taken care of by the foreign powers and special interest groups. When we find that the US ambassador to Ethiopia is the US Viceroy in Addis, it's doubly troubling.
Ethiopians are saying now enough is enough. Peaceful and armed struggles are engulfing the nation far and wide. The Ethiopian volcano is ready to explode. The Tribal Junta had made enemies left and right - Ethiopians and neighboring nations alike. All are waiting for the most opportune time to settle their own scores. The final outcome of the gathering Ethiopian peoples is difficult to predict.
Ethiopian democratic and progressive forces and all stakeholders in the future of Ethiopia need to unite and coordinate their activities and devise and draw a road map. Without a unified action plan and with the Tribal Junta's poisonous political intrigues and machinations driving the nation into Armageddon the end game could be catastrophic. The ethnically cleansed military makes the outcome more precarious.
Everybody knows that we are in a transition period. Change is coming and it could be violent or not violent depending on the wisdom and farsightedness of those that love Ethiopia. For the Tribal Junta losing power means the final nail in their coffin. Thus, the removal of this political cancer is of paramount importance by any means necessary. The people of Tigray have to decide and abandon the sinking Tribal Junta ship and join the silent Ethiopian majority. The TPDM is the answer to this noble call for action.
