What-it-is-like-to-be-EPRDF

If I would start with a cliche... Today was a sad day. After following the American embassy efforts and the mediation, I had thought that there could be some opening for reconciliation and a new start. The problem with the likes of me is that we try to consider EPRDF as a group which makes rational decisions and try to put ourselves in the shoes of EPRDF leaders and speculate about what their interest are and what they might decide.

Of course, there is something to be like EPRDF. Yet EPRDF doesn't have the same rational faculty as we have. Our way of perceiving things is different. We can't extrapolate EPRDF's reasoning from our experience. We can form schematic conceptions of what it is like to be an animal; but not what to be EPRDF is. What we can do, however, is to rob EPRDF of its power to perplex, hurt and anger us with its irrationally irrational decisions .

LET'S REMEMBER THAT THERE NO LONGER IS THE DICTATORSHIP OF A FRONT NAMED EPRDF OR TPLF IN OUR COUNTRY; WHAT WE HAVE IS A ONE MAN RULE. ZENAWI IS THE ONE WHO DECIDES ON THE FATE OF THSE POLITICAL PRISIONERS.
HE IS PLAYING HIS GAME; WE WILL PLAY OURS. WE MAY LOSE SOME AMONG US BUT OUR VICTORY IS CERTAIN. ONE THING FOR SURE, TIME IS ON OURSIDE.
LETS SEE WHAT HIS NEXT MOVE IS GOING TO BE. I DON'T EXPECT HIM TO UP THE ANTE. WE HAVE TO BE READY FOR HIM THOUGH.

Struggle starts with defining the enemy. Do we really know who the Tplf is? Most people doesn't very well know what Tplf stands for. They always get surprised. No anger and frustration. Lets get ready for the eventuality. Lets talk to them in the language they understand.

I am even more baffled by the media coverage. Where is Tsegaye Tadesse of Rueter's? Where is Anber Henshaw of BBC? Where Andrew Heavens? Why didn't they cover the most important issue in the country?

EZ,

What rationality are you talking about? TPLF does not know the word rational, in their mind everything is analyzed based on cost analysis and reconciliation would mean accepting responsibility for murdering innocent Ethiopians on the open streets. It would mean giving up government back to the winner, that would mean a huge loss. Do you know that the bggest 100 companies in the whole Ethiopia belong to TPLF? Do you know that these companies do not pay taxes they operate freely using public dontion money to do their transportations and all that expenses? Do you know that TPLF recently doubled all Tegrae salary 100%, which means they take salaries twice a month while the rest of Ethiopians suffer with one monthly salary? Do you know that the UN donation is directly kept in the pockets of TPLF CC Members while many suffer and die of hunger?

DO YOU ALSO KNOW THAT TPLF/WOYANE IS COLLECTING ALL HARD CURRENCY NOW AND BECAUSE OF THAT ETHIOPIAN CURRENCY INFLATION RATE HAS HIT 70%? THEY ARE PLANNING TO SEPARATE TIGRAYA FROM ETHIOPIA? THE RECENT LEAKED PROPOSAL PASSED BY TPLF CC MEMBERS, which states that they are making Tigrya regional power at the expense of Ethiopia. They are collecting hard currency from Ethiopia while they have the chance to do it.

So with all that in mind its NOT possible for TPLF to seek for reconciliation at all. She would rather suppress Ethiopians and kill as many as necessary to allow her to dance in power for as long as she can and LOOT as much money as she can. Many of you did not believe me when I was telling you the truth, instead you all thought I was TOO IRRATIONAL, well now you all know that I was telling the truth. In fact, I am the MOST RATIONAL PERSON ON EZ COMMENTING.

TPLF/WOYANE has to be removed by force, or else she will continue to suck Ethiopia to bone dry while legitimizing her killing of properly elected leaders, and USA is helping them stay in power by giving the blind eye.

Ethiopia Zelalem!

Once more, try to form schematic conception of what it is like to be a BEAST, you will become closer to know what-it-is-like-to-be-EPRDF.

It is nice to read all the comments by true Ethiopians , and we have to start asking our selves that are we doing what we are supposed to do or we are just asking the release of our leaders? If it is the later we have a long way to be free from TPLF there fore let the struggle continue and lets stop name calling and lets accept who joined the parlament . let they fight inside , at the same tim let the EPPF get our full support . We have enough evidense that meles is in to TIGRAY-REPUBLIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he doesn't care about my Ethiopia at all!!!!!!!

I am an avid reader of EZ's blog. I love his analysis, and his accuracy in reporting has no match in Ethio Cyberspace.

I feel his pain in trying to think from EPRDF's point of view.

Howerver, I agree with PATRIOTIC ETHIOPIAN above that we are kidding ourselves if we think EPRDF will give up power without force. Ever! History just doesn't support that. After all, this is Africa.

People give up power peacefully when they want what's best for the country. If you believe EPRDF wants what's best for Ethiopia, then expect a peaceful transition of power someday. Just remember this: They didn't build this East German style security appartus just so they will hand over power with baloons and confetti coming down the ballroom.

Dear Zagol,

Thanks for telling us all the news, if it wasn't for you much of the stuff going on would have been lost in the TPLF log-book. Thanks your service to Ethiopians is priceless!

I agree with "ETHIOPIAN PATRIOT" this guy is telling the truth, I have been reading his posts with much interest and I agree with everything he rights, although he has become too sensitive, but he is telling the truth. All the informations coming out of Ethiopia today are much like what he says, many would agree with his assesment. Now a liter of fuel is 15 birr, a chicken is 100 birr, a killo meat is 50 birr, everything has gone wild high. Many are not going to be eating any meat for a long time to come. When we ask people in the slaughter house, they say ETHIOPIAN MEAT IS ONLY FOR EXPORT, NOT FOR DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION. THIS IS DONE FOR HARD CURRENCY BECAUSE TPLF PLANS TO SEPARATE TIGRAI-FROM ETHIOPIA.

Everyone knows the document Meles has been passing around his (Tegre)ministers. Everyone is waiting for that day so we can live in peace. Personally, I don't care if they separate tomorrow, I will bless their departure from the UNION. In fact, if they don't voluntarily separate we will vote them out using Article-39.

Our leaders are going to be vindicated, they don't have to defend anything. They have to say we do not believe in the legitimacy of the court's ruling. They have no reason for them to defend something they do not have anything to do with. What are they going to present? The only thing they can say is "I don't know what you are talking about."

If, anyone thet needs to defend its is TPLF that needs to defend her criminal activities, the killing of Innocent people, the constant harrassment of our leaders, and finally bring them to a fake court after 1 1/2 of unfaire incarceration. This time the Ethiopians have to stand up and defend their dignity and country from a sell out bandas like TPLF.

Ethiopia Tikdem!!!
