Protesting Ethiopian soldiers jailed

(By Ethio-Zagol)
Five hundred members of the Agazi battalion were put in jail last week for refusing to fight in Somalia. The soldiers had been in Somalia since the start of the war. Military sources said that the protesting soldiers were rounded up and taken back to Ethiopia where they were put under round the clock surveillance at Wondetika military camp, 260 kilometers south of Addis Ababa.

What's up with these guys? They were killing machines when they faced unarmed stone throwing children. They can't put up a good fight against armed men?
I hope this is a change of heart in there part and it is my wish that they will never again kill or maim their own protesting kids.

Helloe E.Z and the rest of you,this is a couragous move on the part of Agazie forces ,and they need to be commended for this bold act. civilized citizins including ,the military have special responsiblity in dispensing their national duity ,and at times they may be called to take political stand such as this,especially,when the issue at stake is the security of the nation.This has been controversial issue ,from the begining,for the people of Ethiopia- they made it clear long befor the war started they will not support or finance this war and it is good news that Agazie is standing on the side of the people.
You take care and becarefull!

I believe only when " Woyane - Agazi groups" will use their guns against Meles and his belly smugglers.
Why put them in jail 260 km south of Addis ? Why not in Tigrai ? There is something boiling inside their pot ?

Did I read it properly? 500 soldiers put into prison? Meles is now just like a patient in coma having infusion set on him. Protests and oppositions have to be intensified so now Weyane will be over by the millenium.

I know Agazis are tibal hatemonger coward baby killers! But when they faced with real mean with gun they start running like scared rats. I don't have any sympthy for this criminals I hope Meles the facist will order Military Marshal order to exectue this usless baby killers! They are not ethiopian national this are tigrian hateful tribal warlords under the disgise of Ethiopian national Armay! For me and for most of the Novemeber 2005 victims this is a good news so we will have less bloody thisty baby killers!

Agazi soldiers are cowards. They know how to kill innocent civilians. When they face real challenges they refuse to fight. I think this is a good lesson. Weyane is strong only on the surface. Deep down weyane is dead.

The "cowards" chased the Eritrean Army dug in trenches for two years, within a two week period. In fact, the cowards had them on the run asking the international community for mercy. The same "cowards" eliminated the Islamci terrorists in a week.
Ethio-Zago can write all she wants but the only proof I need about the Ethiopian military is on the ground. At the speed of light, eliminating every enemy at HOME and ABROAD. TO THE AGAZI FORCES, YOU MAKE ETHIOPIANS VERY PROUD.

The Annon above ,the six in the row, what are you exactly saying?There is al- ready head line news on many outlets that states that (89)Agazis have surrenderd to Yemeni authorities-this also appeard to be a similar reaction regarding the Somalia war .It is said they are unwilling to fight citing the following as their consern- this is not their war,and they want to be safe.Either way, it looks like they have cut some kind of deal from some group to get to Yemen.Obviously, you seem to be conserned about this developments;I think every one should ,because no one knows for sure where this turn of events might lead.Having sayed this, I will advise you that instead of being cynical ,and seceptical about this events you need to search different sources-dont doubt any thing before you do your home work.Please don't try to remain in your comfort zone beliving merly critizizing E.Z will take this news away from radar screen.You can be sure in the next few days if you are patient enough;you will here it from another source.It is for this reason I ask you not to belittle E.R or E.Z for doing their job.My advise for you is this you and I never know what the Lord ,who govrns the world and human affairs, is about to do-It might comein the form of sudden death for autorities,and a hope for many who have been unfairly treated.You never know don't undermine the power and the will of the Lord.In the mean time you may come back home ,and be on the side of the people.I remember reading this phrase some where in the form of "You know that Ethiopians have big heart."This is so true you can count on it.

It is difficult for me to believe the news. I think those Agazi guys are not completely morons. How come they surrender and give their neck to be slaughtered? 500 of them. I guess it is a good number to defend one's cause than give their hands to the killer.

you need to talk sense sometimes, not only wishes.

hi ethiozagol
i agree on the statements of the last comment.
i also feels that some wrath is coming up in Somalia.these Agazi pets has to be saved for other qurti qen.then woyane has to pull out them out of this wrath in the guise of they protested.the other poor army staff are doomed to face the fire.

As usual my comment that disagree with you has been deleted again. But I will never shutup as long as you are working against the interest of Ethiopia and Ethiopians. I am sure you are happy with the news the new formed Alliance in Eritrea by Former ICU leaders and Aideed. Congratulations!

I believe The young Ethiopian men who chose not fight relized that Meliz was wrong invading somalia. First the resistance fighters are in their land and among their people, whereas Tigrayans are strangers in a strange land. The overwhelming majority of the people in Mogadishu support the resistance fighters, whereas the overwhelming majority of the people in Mogadishu cannot stand seeing the Tigrayan forces, adding insult to injury, and debasing the people’s dignity and honor by deliberately setting up their headquarters at the former Ministry of Defense, of this once proud nation!

The anon above who are bitterly complaining about your message ................... Please understand the very rights you are protesting here-our people have been unlowfully robbed by your government for this long ,and you can not convinse any one that Ethiopians are less concious of their rights than you or me-that will be an insult for this brave people ;alouth there is every reason to believe that tplf's plan to shut all independent media migtht have been guided by such folly.You know that you have every right in this or other forums to post your views provided the comments are descent.You sayed.........."so long you are working Against Ethiopia and the interest of Ethiopians". We are trying hard to promote peace around here-I think your comment regarding this lacks substance.Who really speacks for the interest of Ethiopia?Weyane and its rulers or the masses of Ethiopians.Your government is indeed an "illigitmate child" in the eyes of the majourity of our people-it is there outside the will of the people.Take care!

WHAT ETHIOPIANS SHOULD LEARN FROM SOMALIA

The time to guard against corruption and tyranny is before they shall have gotten hold of us.It is better to keep the WOLF out of the fold than to trust to drawing his teeth and talons after he shall have entered.

I AM POSTING THIS TO INSPIRE ETHIOPIANS AT HOME THAT EVEN IF YOU DIE, YOUR SACRIFICE WILL BE RECOGNIZED FOR EVER AND EVER. YOU WILL BE TALKED ABOUT LIKE THE ARTICLE BELOW, THE JEWS FOUGHT BACK NAZI GERMANY. IMAGINE EVERY JEW WAS ONLY ALLOWED 250 CALORI PER DAY WHILE GERMAN SOLDIER HAD 2,600 CALORIE PER DAY. HUNGRY AND DYING, THEY FOUGHT THE ENEMY. I HOPE WITH THIS ARTICLE I WILL BE ABLE TO INSPIRE AT LEAST 1 PERSON IF NOT THE WHOLE TRUE ETHIOPIANS UNDER TPLF/WOYANE CONTROL.

Warsaw ghetto uprising commemorated Thu Apr 19

WARSAW, Poland - The last surviving leader of the Warsaw ghetto uprising placed yellow daffodils on a granite memorial Thursday to commemorate the 64th anniversary of the start of the ill-fated, armed resistance.

Marek Edelman, shivering on a chilly spring day, walked arm-in-arm with his granddaughter from the stark monument for heroes of the uprising in downtown Warsaw to several other sites within the Nazi-era ghetto for Warsaw Jews.

On one of Edelman's stops, a group of teenagers sang Yiddish songs that roused the fighters who rose up on April 19, 1943 against Germany's attempts to liquidate the ghetto.

Edelman, who picked out the tunes, sang along softy.

In a separate ceremony, Poland's President Lech Kaczynski and other officials placed wreaths at the monument to those killed in what was the first major act of civilian resistance against the Nazis in Poland during World War II.

They opted to fight their captors in the face of plans to exterminate the tens of thousands of Jews remaining in the ghetto, where Nazis had crowded more than 400,000 people in November 1940. The residents, outnumbered and outgunned, held off German troops for three weeks with homemade explosives and a cache of smuggled weapons.

Most of fighters were killed and the Nazis burned down the ghetto street by street.

It is Time to say no for this regiem, Yes Agazi! why you are fighting for the nonsense War. Even so Ethioipia has nothing to do with this War.

Keep on going like this for your rights.


A good Job!!

If there is a strong opposition group who wage an armed struggle I am quite sure the army of Meles will defect him and join the opposition group. You can prove my assumption in the protests of Agazi division member and in those who defected to Yemen.
We have a people who entirely refuse the governance of Woyanne regime.
We have an army who is refusing the brutality of Meles ruling.
But, we do not have elite who are a symbol of unity and who deserves to our emissary.

This is the moment for us to realize that AGAZI can be used in our favor. AGAZI help remove the TPLF regime then we have the opportunity for AFD to come and salvage Ethiopia from the mess TPLF has put us in.

I felt squirm if this news is true at all. How on earth these soldiers say no to their commanders and fail to pursue their duties. They are entangled with their duty which is obviously fighting enemies who can potentially jeopardize our soverignity. I dont believe this news for a single second. If its true, then, they have to be punished seriously so that other fellow colleagues in the battle field will take a big lessons.
Confused!

Above anonym,

Whats wrong with you? 89 of them escapped to Yemen. TPLF cadres caught these soldiers because they were unable to runaway on time, if they had the chance they too would have left for Yemen. Why are you surprised, about 300 Ethio soldiers went to Eritrea about 9-months ago, in fact they had two or three Generals among them. Why would you be surpised? You will see TPLF CC members will run to other country before they are captured. Its my belief that just wait for another three or four months and you will see.
