Meles's grandiose delusional disorder gets reality check

(By Meqdela)
"Empires die of indigestion," Napoleon claimed. So too dictators. Sense of invincibility and self-importance leads to grandiose delusion disorder. Psychiatrists say that people who are affected by grandiose delusion disorder usually don't care about getting treatment because they are convinced of their ideas. The political form of grandiose delusional disorder is worse as it is a source of catastrophic action by those in power who harbour the disorder. There can be no better example than the actions of Napoleon himself.
Meles destroyed his opponents at home with brute and force. His shaky government survived in spite of a tide of unfavourable opinion from the citizenry. I think that led him to the sense of invincibility. He invaded Somalia without due cause and argued what happened to America(the world's hyper power) in Iraq wouldn't happen to Ethiopia in Somalia. That is pure and simple delusional disorder. Now he has to face reality check and- by extension indigestion . Is Somalia the beginning of the end for Meles?

Melles Zenawi made a terrible mistake of monumental proportion by invading Somalia. He opened the gates of hell when he invaded Somalia. Melles disregarded every intellectual and analytical advise not to invade Somalia as irrelevant in a typical grandios mentalitiy. What is amazing is the lesson he refused to learn from the existing horrible reality in Iraq. Now if he cuts and run he will face the outcome of an anti-Tplf government in Mogadishu, if he stays, he will bleed to death. In a way it is a blessing in disguise for the Somali people. The invasion created the nationalistic feeling that was non existent for the last 16 years. Bad news for Zenawi. May be the begining of the end of his Tplf regime.

I hope it is the begining of the end of these thives/gangs in Ethiopia. I also wish that the poor Ethiopian soldiers will STOP this madnnes and turn arround work for their country peace and security by puting Meles and his group in prison so that true and a just justice can be witnnesed in Ethiopia. I am sure 100% that day is not far not at all.

Who cares-Do you think that meles cares about the death of his soldiers? Never!!What is important for me is the signal those 89 defected soldiers passed not only to their colleagues but also to somalis and the Ethiopian community at large.If similar move is to be taken by others(i hope so),it will facilitate the demise of `Chirac` woyane. Woyane will never pullout for humaniterian grounds for meles percieves that staying in somalia best guarantees his stay in power.And he will do it at any expense-till one soldier is left as our former dictator said.
Let us help those who stared to speak the language woyane understands!!
Bless Ethiopia!!

There is credible report coming from Somalia that most of the weyane led Ethiopian troops in Somalia are selling thier weapons and fleeing to Yemen, most of them in civilian clothes. Melles Zenawi and his cohorts over played the Somalia card and now paying the price. The only reason Melles stayed in power after May 2005 was due to the fact that he convinced some paranoid western politicians that he is thier man watching ungoverned Somalia. Now he is UNMASKED and everything is crystal clear to understand. All the scenarios are bad for weyane. Here is how one Somalia expert put it on yesterday's VOA "I think what has happened is that the TFG-Ethiopian assault on Mogadishu is cementing the Hawiye back together," he said. "A large part of the Islamic courts movement was always based on the Hawiye. So, basically, it has melted back into the clan structure. What we could well be looking at, if things turn nasty, is a Hawiye-Darod civil war. Unless the international community manages to understand that they must not continue with this unquestioning support of the TFG, we are going to head down the path of civil war."

Another Somali observer in the United States, J. Peter Pham, says the withdrawal of Ethiopian forces from Somalia may be a positive move, if it meant that Somalia could form a new government with a broader base of support.

"If those forces withdrew, that will be the end of the TFG," he noted. "However, I would not see that necessarily as the worst possible outcome. One of the TFG's on-going problems is that it is not a representative institution of Somalis. If the TFG falls, so be it, and let the Somali people themselves decide what they want."

The news is out that the three Pm. members of the Somalia provesional Gov.have already announced the formation of the new alliance involving the main clan in Mogadisho,the remnants of I.C.U,and Shabia.Mean while,the minority regime in Bideoa in another developments has announced its removal of (31)Pm.members ,perhaps,suspected of being supporters of the popular nationalist movement.Confronted with all this pressing issues of the time,by all account, T.P.L.F for the first time since it came into power appers to be it's back against the wall.It was ,when this war begins, the aspirations of it's leaders that they will easily stamp out the I.C.U ,and then turn back and teach the same lesson to Shabia.In this Grandiose delusion as E.Z has pointed out T.P.L.F's grand plan was to send message to Ethiopian oposition that (She) will be there unchallenged for years.This dream as we speak now has already evaporated.In the last two months this uncertainity and anxiety was visible among the leaders of T.P.L.F. Forinstance, the Gov.of Tigrie's mixed message both ,conciliatory and accusative to his neighbor (saying the two people have to work in co-operation instead of competition,was meant an appeasment gesture to keep Shabia in friendly terms.What we have said above is this-things appear to be this way considerd from human perspective.The question need to be raised ,also,are we contemplating what God is about to accomplish. Esheto Daba has in the past stated that "There is destiny for people and Gov.intities." We are completely at one on this view.I want to go far and say this- it appears to me a government or individual can enjoy it's given temporal destiny so long the belessing of GOD's mercey,and protective shieled is around it.In closing, I want to say this I am not surprised with what I see;I see the shapping of new destiny on the horizon for Ethiopia and its people. Peace for All Ethiopians!
Good job E.Z keep it up be very careful.

Is Somalia the next Eritrea for the Ethiopian so called "Opposition". Eritrea was the land gathering fake rebel groups, terrorist, and rif-raf of Ethiopian political parties. Ethio-zegol seems to think that Somalia will help salvage Ethiopia. We all know Eritrea is using Somalia as proxy war, but for EZ this is a good news. Again congratulations.

gena, gena all you weyanes are going to cry blood tears....this time around, man endemiderselachuh enayalen....anon above, proxy war blablabla.....look when eritrea will attack my borders...ye ethiopia lijoch yassayuhal...but if you go in somalia illegaly and eritrea is matching you there...well, that s your weyanistic problem!!!...Same goes for somalia....until they attacked us and claim their greater somalia thing, we should have stay still by our borders using diplomatic, economic and peaceful ways. Had they attacked, it would have been another story...but as we all saw they didn t have the begining of structure to lead the invasion of a country like ethiopia....Melesiye, ante werobela, you sound like the boy who cried wolf stuck in quick sands....quicker, please quicker!!! Dont be fooled...Meles is not the guarrantor of a united ethiopia, eritrea is not the dismantler of ethiopia, islamist court is not endagering our ogaden....The strength of ethiopia only depends on ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE and god bless us, we have shown we can be patient, resiliant, and that we wont let no one touch our land...a land soaked with blood from our fathres and their fathers who died for her to exist as a nation!

Dear Eritreans,

Please save us from the people you created and install in Ethiopia. We approved your independence without any disagreement. We know that you deserve your independence, but do you have to plant evil on Ethiopia? You planted a bad seed called Woyane, and this bad seed is infacting my country and I wish for you Eritreans to give us back our country. We know that you have the power to remove Woyane, why don't you remove them? they are doing you bad, they are disturbing the neighborhood, they are sucking Ethiopian resources bone dry. Please, help us remove Woyane. Thank you!

Dear Meles and co,

I am a firm believer of what goes around comes around. You can only fool few times, not all the time. Your time is up. You better run while your good friends are around. When push comes to shove those friends are not going to be their. It is the fact not fiction.

God Bless!

It is amazing to see the Tplf regime attempting to do what the world super power failed to do. Are the Tplf leaders this much blind not to see the obvious? The plan to invade Somalia looked perfect on paper. After the success in Somalia, they will tell the opposition that they are the uncontested allay for the western world so stop dreaming about power. They will threaten Eritrea to stop supporting the opposition groups and negotiate in Tplf terms or face a full scale war. But now everything is a FIASCO. They are in an awkward position in Somalia. All the misinformation they fed the western world turned out to be false. Thay can't leave. They can't stay. FIASCO.

Meles must go and soon will. Are we at all ready for the post Meles Ethiopia???

Anonymous said...

God willing, meles is going down soon! However, what worry me the most is our country’s future and the question - what/ who is coming afterwards?

As you all know, Eritria and now Somalia are pro the distraction of our country and will do whatever they can to keep Ethiopia weak and worthless, thanks to the TPLF especially Meles. At this time, as Ethio-zagol alleged, I, from a clinician prospective, also started to be suspicious about the mental status of meles. And it is more terrifying to even think that a country is led by a psycho. O lord Have mercy upon us!

May God save the country and our people!

Melles Zenawi and his Tplf ethnic Junta are in a slippery slop since May 2005. As time goes the regime looks even more frightening. They seem to do everything under the sky to stay in power even if setting the whole region in to fire than transfering power peacfully. The latest escalation in Somalia has proven that the Tplf junta is able to massacre and carpet bomb civilians with impunity. The junta is in a desperate situation in Mogadishu and is paying a price for its delusional decision to invade Somalia. Now former warlord and deputy prime minister Mohammed Farah Aideed is also accusing Tplf of genocide. The only body that is standing by the regime is the Bush administration's neo-cons. Given the Bush administration's bizzare decisions recently it is not a surprise to the World.

Dear Meqdela,

Can you please remove message #16, for he/she is ANTI-ETHIOPIA and PRO-WOYANE. We do not have to listen to people like this trying to muzzel our mouth, his/her TPLF Regime is doing in my Ethiopia. Please let's NOT tolerate people for muzzling our mouth so they can continue to vioalte our people with impuinity. I agree with message #9, the Eritreans brought this tyranny to Ethiopia and they must help us removing it. Now the Tyrant is pulled from everyside in Ethiopia all we need is strong army like Eritrea to give it its final punch in the gutts so we all cn live in Peace.

PLEASE ERITREANS COME AND SAVE ETHIOPIANS WE WILL BE THE BEST OF NEIGBORS EVER, ALL WE NEED IS JUST THIS ONE FAVOR. TPLF IS KILLING ETHIOPIANS BY THOUSANDS AND CONTROLLING THE ECONOMY, THE POOR IS GETTING POORER AND DYING IN THE STREETS WHILE TPLF SUPPORTERS ARE GETTING RICH AT THE EXPENSE OF POOR ETHIOPIANS. PLEASE, PLEASE SAVE MOTHER ETHIOPIA FROM TPLF.

I agree with the above anonymous, let everyone express their opinion without fear and threat from TPLF agents working on this forum. Weyane used the Eritreans help to come to Ethiopia, I don't see any reason as to why we wouldn't ask Eritrea to help us remove Weyane. We are only using the same method they used to come to Ethiopia. Thats all, this cannot be possible if Weyane treats Ethiopians with dignity and respect instead of, killing us, jailing us and harassing us in our own country.

Mekidella, I certainly disagree with the messenger of message 16.not only that, I am the strong opponent of him or her. Because I am daughter of Minilik.
“MINILIK TENESTO BAYANESA GSHA,
GIBIRU ENQULAL NEBER EHNIGIZE ABESHA.”
This immortal sense of patriotism is deeply rooted in my mind.
But, I do not agree on the removal of message. It is type of undemocratic character.
The woyannes and pro woyannes have no power except lie, betray and brutality.
They become victorious by exploiting our virtue

I know one thing... "HAYL YE EGZIBHER NEW"!!!! God is the only superior power in the world and he is our power. That is what we have learned from our fathers who went to war with the priests carrying the “Tabot”, just like kind David of Israel. God is capable of to deliver us from this misery, and he will!
Some times I think of his patience as a way of teaching us, and telling us to exhaust all the hopes and confidence we have on other pathetic beings who are selfish, insensitive, and don’t even know for themselves. They don’t want to see or think of the truth and stand for the righteous beyond their petite interest. O lord Have mercy upon us!!!
May God save his people!!!

Listen you bunch of idiots, times have changed; the demand on God to save everyone is overwheelming and sometimes we need to give God the break and do what we need to do instead of asking the over demanded God to save Ethiopia from tyranny. We have been asking God to do too much for us, we were hungry in 1974, we all looked upon God as if it was his fault, the same happened in 1984 again we requested for God to help us. Then we asked God to remove Mengistu, then TPLF came to power so much hunger went on, we asked God to help us. Then TPLF took us into war we asked God to hep us, then TPLF rigged the election stealing our government, we ask God to help. I think God needs a break and lets do some of the work ourselves, Godave us two legs and two hands; its upto us to use it and help ourselves. Give God the Break and remove TPLF by ourselves, asking for help from our neigbors is okay.

I don't think we need to agree with the avove anonym, lets pray and at the same time let us help ourselves. We should be able to remove TPLF from our country with God's help. We are God fearing people and we ask for God to bless us. I understand that there are several TPLF supporters that are asking God to give them more time to steal and more time to kill our people. But our God does not get involve into such bad plot to make our people slaves of TPLF.

I just want to say few words about my brother’s comment. First of all, we all have the right as well as the obligation to contribute what we think is good for our country. Yet, we all can not think or do the same; simply because of our natural differences in thinking, knowledge, belief…and so on. Therefore, the only thing we should do is make ourselves clear to others and convince them to consider what we put on the table is the better for our country. I DO NOT think that insulting, “Listen you bunch of idiots”, or pushing positive ideas behind without even discussing them would not help anymore, we should know better by now!!!

Once again… "HAYL YE EGZIBHER NEW"!!!! … And He is the only superior power in the world and he is our power. This does not mean that we have to sit around and wait for miracle. God’s order to man is this - “belabeh bela”. What I said was that let’s do what ever we can and ask God to strengthen/unify us, and relay only on him to bless our work/struggle.

We can call on our neighbors, rather brothers, for their help. The question is who is going to give a genuine hand to lend; it can be a give and take but faithfulness is the key here. Who wants to see this historical, ancient, and powerful country standing on her feet is the issue! I know one thing for sure that the God of our fathers would! And I do not hesitate to call for his help … ever… He is not going to leave us. Even after all the miseries we have gone through, I KNOW HE CAN DO IT!!!! The bible says, “What you sow does not come to life unless it dies”. Meaning God brings the rotten seed into life. That is a kind of help we should be calling today.

JOB 26 :14
I strongly agree with the last message,#6 ,#20,# 22.All this commenters have mentioned the Lord in their messages.Is democracy tolerant of my belief in the personal God or not? If it is not some thing to think about where this folly is to land us if we really have to walk to gether.The word of God said "can two walk together,except they be agreed"AMOS 3:3 W e need to be tolerant to every view if we have to stay together and come up with solution to our people:every Ethiopian has a stake in nation building it is not left to some circles or parties to shape events in certain direction.Just to refresh your memory the overwhelming majority of rural ,and the provencial Ethiopians belive in the personal God.The message Ethiopias problem is to be solved by the Lord himself;he is alredy working on our behalf if we don't short circuit what he is doing by being faith less. I am aware that every body does not believe in him.From my perspective, the longer we continue to trust on our method, strength ,and other sources with out seeking help from him he will see to it our effort gets no where:he will teach us this through practical means(failure)until we acknowledge that we need his help.Remember we just come out of one dead end road,and we are discussing on embracing another one ,Yet, we are undecided whether we need to ask God's help or not. Those whoare believers need to speak up we con not be silenced we are the majority.We are the people what we say about God and our faith must have rightful place in our national life.
