Conviction followed by crack down

(by Meqdela)
If anyone thinks the outpouring of anger and shock which followed the Adil Ahamed's blatant injustice would make EPRDF rethink its decision, what has happened after the conviction should be a cause for pause. In most villages in Addis Ababa, there is a massive crack down of former kinijit members and opposition supporters. Even those who are linked remotely with the opposition are facing real threat now. EPRDF's strategy is clear.

-First, convict the prisoners while people aren't giving attention to the trial.
-Arrest and torture opposition supporters as a pre-emptive action so that they wouldn't organize protests before the sentencing.

They know as far as the international community is concerned, they can implement whatever strategy with absolute impunity. During the fake negotiations in April, one of the so-called mediators who lost hope on the American amabassador said:"I can't believe how Meles treats him[Yamamoto] like a child. He doesn't even respect the flag the ambassador represents." Whether the mediator intends it or not, the message of the satement can't be more lucid.

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TRYING TO CONVINCE THAT DON YAMAMOTO IS NOT PART OF THE TPLF GANG?

EVERY ETHIOPIAN KNOW THIS COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT THE PERMISSION AND BLESSING OF AMERICA! ANYONE REPRESENTING THE CURRENT AMERICAN REGIME IS INVOLVED IN THE INDISCRIMINATE MASS KILLING AND MASS INARCERTION OF OUR PROPERLY ELLECTED LEADERS.

Mr. Yamamoto is the evil american horse who argued for TPLF in the African sub-Senate committee during the mass killing and mass detentaining of our leaders. We do not forget, we know who our friends are and who our enemy is. EU REPRESENTATIVE "ANA GOMEZ" IS OUR FRIEND AND FORMER AND CURRENT AMERICAN REPRESENTATIVES OPERATING IN ADDIS (VICKY HUDDLESTON & DON YAMAMOTO (Asian-dragon) ARE OUR ENEMY! Save your breath meqdela, we know who is who.

How come TPLF regime is getting a $BILLION$ while all the violation and anti-democratic practices? they got a $780 million just before the NOTORIOUS IRAQ WAR INSTIGATOR (PAUL WOLFOWITZ) was caught in corruption and reliefed of his job, then after a month they get another $225 million for "democracy promotion & road construction."

How is it possible for democracy promotion they get money? The stiffled the democratically elected government and put all the opposition winning MPs into jail. And they are judging them now. Is that a democracy?

It is so funny, Meles said the judgement was gonna take place at the end of last month, and he changed his mind, so he can secure the $BILLION$ and goes to G-8 meeting without any embarrassment then he comes back and BOOM! now he has secured the money in his pocket. Is that a friendly thing to do for the current US administration?

Don't tell us Meles treats Yamamoto bad, Yamamoto is part of the TPLF ORGANIZATION, AND HE GETS PAID WELL FOR IT. THE US SENATE SHOULD INVESTIGATE HIS ASS, HE IS RECEIVING A NORMAL SALARY FROM THE US WHITEHOUSE AND HE ALSO RECEIVES A SIDE INCOME FROM TPLF organization. WE KNOW THAT AND WE HAVE EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT!

You talk too much. This weregna culture that frowns on substance is at the fore of Ethiopia's dilemma. A culture that thrives on idiotic fairy tales and delusions of grandeur. An intoxication with the extreme and a minimal appreciation for the middle ground. Why? The Ethiopia is essentially intellectuallyl LAZY. Rather that find a complicated middle ground, the Ethiopian is always comfortable with his idiotic extremists position because it absolves him from finding any real solutions and is happy at punting like a child told to stand on the corner and think. Grow up. Buna ena werenga mehone will not push Ethiopia towards any development. Stop that crap.

I am not sure about Yamamoto getting paid by TPLF. But even the half naked and half crazed street beggers who accost you in the streets of Addis can tell you a lot more about Yamamoto and the current regime.

I, too don't believe the story about Meles disrespecting Yamamoto. The saying "eman lai honesh manin tamiyalesh" comes to mind.

I wouldn't be surprized if the whole "negotiation" and the sudden "verdict" have been all coocked up by Yamamoto and Meles at one of their private meetings.

Unless you are one of those "idiotic extrimists", how else would you dare call the entire population idiotic and extrimists.

The guilty verdict was a logical product of the most brutal, cunning, calculating and vindictive regime in Ethiopia’s history. The real nature of Ethiopia’s judicial system was exposed starkly on the night of the 2005 election when Meles single-handedly curbed civil liberties and took direct command of the security forces and the army. When this unconstitutional step was challenged in court by the opposition, the issue was referred to the Constitutional Inquiry Commission whose members are Kemal Bedri (who doesn’t need introduction) and Menberetsehai Tadesse, a hardcore TPLF in black robes whom an exiled senior judge called “the enemy of justice”. These “titans’ of justice came out with their one-liner verdict: “He (Meles) can do that.” For me that was the defining moment. We shouldn’t forget that a not-guilty verdict would have been an indictment of Meles and the gang. Do you expect that under Meles’ watch? It is sad that with every misstep it takes, the regime is radicalizing the population.

THE WEREGNAS AND THEIR CRAP:

Let me be more specific. The Weregna culture is most prevalent amongst the Amharas. It is my impression that the Amhara is lost in the new millenium. Unable to adjust to the realities of the present, he contineously refers to his old habits of the feudal days to give him a delusion of control and prominence. The Amara psyche is unable to contemplate a win win solution, evolutionary change and a sense of FALSE superiority. This is the core problem for the majority of Amaras. Their suspicious psyche served them well to rule Ethiopia during the feudal times. Presently, the same psyche is pushing the Amara towards a state of marginal existence. Accordingly, the Amara huffs and puffs trying to blow the house down. But the reality is the contrary. But no Amara tells another Amara the reality. They both cultivate a false sense of reality as they edge closer to dooms day. So the Hailu Shawels are found guilty. The Amara expected the world to turn over. Thus far, life goes on. That is reality. Thus far, The P.M. Meles is having meetings in Germany with the G-8 while the Hailu Shawels is having a meeting with his jail cell mates. Again, the Amara can't see that. He makes himself more significant than he is. His irrelevance or should I say, proportional relevance is about to proved to him as his so-called heroes rot in jail or are freed at the discretion of the P.M. THAT IS REALITY. DEAL WITH IT. YOUR DELUSIONAL SELF-LOATHING IS AT YOUR EXPENSE.

YES IT IS TIME TO DO SOMETHING. IT IS TIME TO MAKE OUR OWN HISTORY.

I think 77milion people should be able to do something about a few group of people that are treating us with indignity.

AS THEY SAY ONCE YOU MAKE A DECISION THE UNIVERSE WILL MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. I don’t know if you have forgotten but GOD IS WITH US. We don’t have to worry about every little detail. GOD WILL PROVIDE WHAT WE NEED ALONG THE WAY. WE ONLY HAVE TO MAKE A FIRM DECISION.

For us to have a better future, TO BE FREE, why don’t we do something about our tormenters? We can take very simple steps, like not work till Meles STEPS DOWN. I am not asking just for the release of the prisoners any more, I am telling you all that WE CAN get ride of this murderer. WE HAVE SEEN THIS DOEN MANY TIMES BY MAY COURAGEOUS PEOPLE AROUNG THE WORLD. WE ETHIOPIANS ARE NO DIFFERENT. WE CAN DO IT.

Our worries about people being poor and not having anything to eat, not being armed etc and therefore not having power over our tormenters is simply not true and shows lack of faith. Our people, the international community and any concerned individual will do something about it. The right people (God send) will be there to help us. There is simply no way that people will just die, if we do it the right way, THE JUST WAY, GOD’S WAY. OUR CONVICTION AND OUR WILLINGNESS TO MAKE CHANGE in our country is what we need. GOD WILL PROVIDE THE REST. Let us not be discouraged, even if, at times, freedom seems so far away and that we are all alone, and have nothing to defend ourselves. If we look closer we have all we need, and a lot more.

Remember Meles has just a small group with him (and had no money) and he is able to put the entire country (77m people) under his control because he is willing and committed. There is no way he has this kind of power over all of us. The rest of us are simply not willing to do anything. Therefore, the devil’s work is being carried out by him, murder, torture, starvation, slavery (yes I said slavery; remember he considers non Tigrians, unworthy, less than Tigrians). And willingness has nothing to do with many being killed. IF THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY. We can nail this murderer in no time, if we want to. WE JUST HAVE TO THINK HARD.

SO PLEASE LET US FINISH THE JOURNEY THAT GOD STARTED FOR US THROUGH OUR BELOVED AND COURAGOUS LEADERS. LET US WORK WITH GOD TO LET HIS CHILDREN FREE, TO STOP STARVATION, TO SHINE THE LIGHT IN OUR COUNTRY.

LET US STOP JUST BEING SIMPLY BLACK PEOPLE GOOD FOR NOTHING, LET US SHOW THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.

LET US START WITH A GOOD PLAN.

To the above anonym: You mentioned GOD six times and yet is hard for me to see any level of Godly spirit in your writing. Nothing about forgiveness but a lot about revenge, on that "small" group, code word for Tigrayans. What a hypocrite. God is far away from you. I would urge you to consult the devil himself, you might be more comfortable. You keep stating 77 Million and yet I have a sneaky suspicion that you speak for a very angry self loathing FEW.

THE WEREGNAS, THEIR CRAP & THEIR Inferiority complex (Chie chie chei):

Let me be more specific. The Weregna, crap and the worst so to speak their inferiority-complex culture is most prevalent amongst the Tigrians, Meles and Co. being at the top. It is my impression that the Tigrians are lost in the ever-new millennium of darkness. Unable to adjust to the realities of the present, they continuously refer to the ever-old habits of the most hated feudal days to maintain a delusion of the darkest control and prominence. The Tigrian psyche is unable to contemplate a win-win solution, evolutionary change and a sense of FALSE superiority marred by inferiority-complex. This is the core problem for the majority of Tigrians who especially say they are matured. Their suspicious psyche never served their lust well to rule Ethiopia during the feudal times. Presently, the same psyche is pushing the Tigrians towards a state of marginal existence simply because good spirit has rejected them. Accordingly, the Tigrian huffs and puffs are trying to blow the house of the-many-peaceful-and-innocent-citizens down. But the reality is the contrary. But no Tigrian tells another Tigrian the reality. They both cultivate a false sense of reality as they edge closer to dooms day and as they are ever-separated from truth, which is bitter for them to swallow. So, the truth-disliking Meles and the melesian-gangs criminalised the 21st century characters of Ethiopia, the unjustly-incarcerated sons and daughters of the Land! The Melesian weyanes thought, at best fantasised the world was only theirs, oops, what a poor guys!. Thus far, the melesian have not realised that life, the true-life that is always hostile and scary to them (the False), going on, goes on, every day getting stronger and stronger to the demise of these few evil-spirited flesh-melesian weyanes. That is reality. Thus far, the devil Prime Monster Meles is having meetings since his birth in jungles, caves, and every where including the one in Germany with the G-8 in a bid to kneel down and beg to have the uncoverable face covered while in fact it is ever-impossible to hide from the brightest truth (the collective of the Hailu Shawules) that is always having a meeting with its solidarities in spirit, moral and dignity from all over Ethiopia and the world! Again, the inferiority-complex-prisoner Tirgian can't see that! He makes himself more significant than he is. His irrelevance or should I say, proportional relevance is about to prove to himself as his so-called turn of regime rot in self-jail or is freed at the discretion of the Truth. THAT IS REALITY. Weyanes, DEAL WITH IT, YOUR DELUSIONAL SELF-LOATHING IS AT YOUR EXPENSE, soon!

This is a direct respnse to Hgos by Hagos. If the original post is proper, this one is much so for Hagos. With the avoidance of the immature terminologies in the original posting, I fully give the authority to the editor, if any, that this one can be edited and the brightest words kept to the readers.

More importantly, the moral of the story is that that first Hagos is and reamins as he is inferior but I think that this reply is what he may want to read and swallow.

Thanks,

The announcement of the court sentencing has not taken most Ethiopians by surprise;we have anticipated ,from the start,this will be the fate of the elected leaders.The only surprise is that the sentencing has been issued on the eve of the millienium.Even,this should have not come as surprise for those who have been closly studing the behavior of this leaders.The news of the sentencing ,the report of intense new round up of young Ethiopians are signs that point an omen is hovering over the cloud.Inspite of all this,we need to handle this developments in care and dignity.Which means we need to refrain from all emotional remarks that will harm our people:an idea the government,through some form of provocation,will like to see it playing into its own hand.
As it has been suggested in many forums,we need to pursue the possiblity of forming some form of alliance with Shabia;this is an important task we can not aford to egnore.Also we need to seek close co-operation with a A.F.D.that,hopfully, will help us secure the possiblity sharing stratigic corridor.That means we need to do some diplomatic maneuvers with Shabia in the coming days;provided this objectives are met,we will be in far better standing than we are now.
Finally,There comes a time where we need to screen out the lies,and the dis-information of the cadres:they are all over sowing dis-cord among Ethiopians.They tell us Melese will not run for another term;That C.U.D leaders will not be sentenced,instead,they will be relesed for the millenium;That the Ethiopian youth,the military ,and E.P.D.R.F are working together to do some thing about the leaders;That there is friction between Sebhat and melese.They send this diversions in hope of planting this lies in the minds of some. They have no respect for the right of Ethiopians;why should we allow them to insist about their right in this forum:at the moment,I think, we need this forum to map out the next stratgic plan.After we decided on what course of action to follow ,we may let them in again.I will ask Mekdela,please, consider screenig their messages out.

Hi EZ the great!

I am mad as hell by what is happening in Ethiopia. But I think the turnning point for Zenawi is the 2005 election. This guy isn't going to survive too long. He knew it and that is why his approach is more of a force than a smart poltical settelment. Yes the Hailu Shawel, Berhanu N and other CUD leaders out smarted him and he is totally cornered. What is left for him is torture and kill innocent people in his remaining days. His days are numbered. That is the reality of Ethiopian poltics.

The turning point for Hitler was the invasion of Russia and the entrampment of the sixth army. Since then killing his opponents was a routine work of the Nazis.
Mengistu never survived too long after he killed the Generals against public opinion in 1989.

As Abebe Gelaw said on his article posted on Addis Voice - Melese is afraid of facing justice for the crimes he committed in Ethiopia. That is why he is on the rampage using the justice system and the army.

What is expected from us is to work together to help the struggle. Just tighten up the rope around Zenawi's neck.

KIL must sit down for an emergency meeting and come up with a clear strategy.

AFD must immediately start sending an envoy to the horn specially to Eritrea and start working on the military and diplomatic front.

The ONLF, OLF and EPPF must double their military campaign by working closely with the Eritrean government.

Every able humanbeing in Ethiopia through out the 13 provinces must contribute to the struggle in his own way. Just like we did during the invasion of Ethiopia by Italy.

For now the West including America have abandoned Ethiopia. But don't worry if you keep tightening the rope around Zenawi's neck they will shift side as the speed of sound.

Every G8 leader knows Zenawi who was standing beside them is a killer and a disgusting humanbeing.

Don't forget the work of EU and several Int'l Human Rights groups about Zenawi. A Zenawi with out power will have no where to hide. EU has documented (unbelievably) numerous crimes committed by Zenawi - although it may not help us now, it makes the dictator frightened and nervous - and it may eventually put him in a prision in the Hague if he escapes from Ethiopia.

Ethiopia will prevail!!

Tamerat said...

Ethiopians have to think strategically, we tried it ourselves and it did not work thus far. How about going to Eritrea and getting trained for military volunteering and enlist on one of the active military wings working in Ethiopian jungle and give the TPLF its run. That is the only thing left, we talkid about this for a long time and it is time to go to Eritrea and choose the group we join and join it. Most of us are making minimum wages here in North American cities and in Western European cities. We have nothing to lose, we have our country to gain.

I think some one told me once, we the Ethiopian people do not have the fire in our system. I think we are docile, I believe it now. The person that told me was not even from Africa, he was from Germany. He said if such violations take place elsewhere people do something about it, but our people are genetically docile. How could we let a foriegn entity colonize us?

Hey EZ,

Did it ever occur to you that you and your loud-mouthed following of nincompoops adversely, and dare I say it, negatively effect the plight of those sitting in jail, now CONVICTED of laughable "crimes" against the State. Did it ever once occur in that thick advocate-prone brain of yours that you should lay off, and play reverse psychology with the Meles regime, therefore providing an opening for the government to let those people off the hook without a lot of noise? Did it ever occur to you that Anthony Mitchell really thought that you were totally off your rocker (along with the rest of the ill-balanced Diaspora) and maintained contact with you in order to fulfill a self-serving purpose of getting "inside" news before his competitors? Did it ever occur to you that you might have helped lead the regime to keep pushing for the conviction because you led the ranting and raving like the Pied Piper leading the rats to death? Did it ever occur to you that you are now counter productive to the notion of a "free" Ethiopia. More people than you know have turned away from helping you and yours because you have become akin to a clown, that seeks attention and recognition like a child student earnestly seeks to win the gold-star award and approval from the teacher for being the first to raise your hand and answer the question in class, rather than resting in the knowledge that you know the answer but seek to release that knowledge through more subtle, and hence, effective ways. YOU ARE NOT HELPING THE AVERAGE ETHIOPIAN, AS YOU SO ARROGANTLY THINK YOU DO. Your words are now beginning to hurt the average Ethiopian, and you, my friend, should seek another means in which to sway your influence. It's easy to do EZ, from your perch in the European Union office in Addis Ababa.

Recently Aboy Sebhat Nega of the Tplf (The God father of Tplf) was heard saying "We will never reconcile with the opposition (Kinijit)" He said Gold and dust are not reconcilable. In a Tigrigna interview he conducted with Demtse Weyane, He openly begged the Eritrean government to reconcile with the Tplf regime as the other political groups in Ethiopia are very dngerous for Eritrean state's existence. The political groups specially Kinijit must consider the latest developments regarding Tplf leaders mentality and strategy. The Tplf seems to preffer reconciling with Eritrea to Kinijit. But the Eritrean government seems to reject Tplf's concilatory tone. Kinijit must be decisive given the latest political development.

Ethiopia is under undeclared marshall law for the last two plus years . Minorty plutocrats with all power and money on the one hand whose toungue is a master of deceit,their hand swift to shed blood, mouth full of cursing and hate, destruction and mayem is their routine deed, they have no fear of God, consciense or moral, all ethiopians are guilty before their law.

On the otherhand the majority of ethiopians only with voting power are being merilessly killed , tortured and starved to death.

The rogue regime is supported and emboldened by Americas reckless and pervasive interference.Their support made murder and ruthless repression possible.

What remains for Us Ethiopians under the rule of shubash descendants is to FIGHT with ferocity, tenacity and perseverence as our forefathers did for their independence. Our eternal debate on political strategy is consuming so much political and emotional energy that little is left for resolving our silly and minor differences and solve the dire problems of the nation and its people.

feeling fleeting anguish for so long should prompt us to take the next stage - sacrifice for liberty!

Our enemies are cold , vengeful,pitiless and exterminators of mankind.There is nothing to prevent their carnal, animal brain from running riot with itself in inventing TORTUREs and infamies of bloody debauchery.

the maintenance of our liberty ,life and property are in PERIL. If we have no spirit to rise after this endless menace to our people and liberators who fought peacefully , then we should have no right to claim and retain liberty.
Rise up , my people rise up.

If these old friends(shabia & woyan) come to the conclution that woyane give what they want,don't you think they wipe out all the freedom fighters with no time?so when we think of fighting better to see other alternatives,otherwise we have to consider berea hoye berea hoye sarun aythe gedelun sataye.I think our straggle must start from within the country,mature brewed througout all nationalities.One thing we must know is we have to stand for ourselves the rest gone with the wind (westerns).

I think we have seen many instances of TPLF “justice”, although the current guilty verdict could arguably be daddy of them all. Let us go back some years in Ethiopia’s recent history. There was a judge (Hagos Woldu) who presided over the trial of Dr. Taye Wolde-semayat (the exiled former president of the Ethiopian Teachers’ Association). A prosecution witness told the judge that he had never seen the defendant and that he was tortured for declining to be a false witness. Fighting back his tears he even showed the judge fresh wounds in his back resulting from torture. Unimpressed with this revelation, Hagos sentenced Dr. Taye to 15 years of rigorous imprisonment.
In TPLF’s world, the judicial system is an instrument of political retribution. The real sentencing takes place not in the courtroom at the end of a trial but much earlier at an obscure office the moment TPLF categorizes you and your legitimate aspirations as inimical. The subsequent court proceeding is a parody. Of course, since it took the reign of power in the country, TPLF through its operatives has killed thousands of innocent people. But no less repression was carried out through “legal” and “administrative” measures. The gang is at war with the truth. The truth shall prevail!!

In the words of Henry Longfellow- “It takes less time to do things right than to explain why you did it wrong.” You were so quick to attack my suggestions but so slow to suggest another action- Yes, you have a point. Maybe...telling the US and European officials wouldn't make much difference- especially if that's all we do. Personally, I don't think it would hurt to put pressure on US officials (who need our votes and care about a their public image) to let them know that we disagree and know that they are supporting a govt that is violating human rights. One letter might not count but i bet you 250 thousand will.

Anyway..I'm not even married to that strategy but only the idea of shifting the discussion to ACTION. Most of you sound knowledgeable, compassionate and speak with a strong conviction. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? WHAT? Yes...we “should rise up in harmony and defeat the dictatorship”, I ASK YOU, HOW? Yes, we should not waste time, YES, “the truth shall prevail” and I ask you again- HOW? People..we all know the history, if we don't know we should read...this ain't the time to educate or contemplate BUT to take ACTION- collective ACTION- with a mission to save the lives of the very people who are fighting to protect your freedom and mine! These people's lives are in danger- every minute passed is a minute wasted- WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON SOME OF THE THINGS WE CAN DO? How, when, and where?
Peace and Harmony!

The last annonymous

Economic boycott everywhere at all times - local, diaspora etc can be the mot effective weapon , regrettably the least employed strategy thus far among us. We can learn from South africa, USA etcc ..how it brought down the most powerful of governments. There are many more to talk , we can start with this for now. we cannot discuss everything here wehre woyane fleas are infesting the site.

TPLF IS A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION RUN BY A GROUP FROM TEGEREA, it is said that this mafia style TPLF/WOYANNIE family business has accumulated over 175 Billion Birr in assets and liquid cash. TPLF CC offshore accounts continue to grow by lips and bound, while the Real-Ethiopian people continue to cry starved and prevented from having to basic human rights.

TPLF assisted by the Americans and the British are responsible for all the destruction and chaos we see in the Horn. What is the reason for the two super powers continue to assist this henious criminal organization is a mistry to many. The Americans and the British have immerssed the TPLF into a mess that is hard to excricate itself from. In the late 1900 the same group led another TEGEREAN leader (king yohannes) to his demise. By provoking war with the mosles to the north and north western region, the Sudanese moslems.

Today the same group are sending the current TEGEREAN war criminal into another abyss. Meles Zenawi a TEGEREAN war lord is making the same mistake king yohannes made. As we all know that king yohannes' head is displayed in the musium of the sudan capital, some say there will be parallel outcome with this leader as his past TEGEREAN king. Meles' head will be displayed in mokadishu musium for future generation to study that fighting on behalf of super power will result in the same way as it did in two TEGEREAN WAR LORDS one displayed in khartoum and one in mokadishu.

Recently, the Somalians have missed an opportunity of having Meles' head in their musium. rest assure they will get the chance again. The only problem is that we the Real-Ethiopians are going to beat them for the previlage of having to display Meles' head in our own musium as the worst Ethiopian leader ever.

As to the British and the Americans we will ask them to stop intervening in our operation of fighting the tyranny or else leave our country. If any intervention is necessary then it should be in our favor, for we are the 95% majority Ethiopians representing the whole country. But currently they are supporting the wrong side, accounting only 5% of the total Ethiopian population.

REAL ETHIOPIANS ARE TIRED OF HEARING GURA ,PROPOGANDA AND SELF SERVING STETMENTS.How is it we even can't agree on simple issues,such as keeping this forum for our use.Yet,every one is willing endlessly talk nothing trash.We do this for many reasons.
1- Our heart is empty to ward Ethiopia and full of self.
2- We do this under the guise of anonymity.
3-There are more cadres on every forum now doing great job in influencing what method of struggle Ethiopians should persue:to do more talk and remain non-active.
We are sick and tired to see Ethiopian politics falling in the hands of wrong people:the cold,and callous dispora.There is always exception to any general stetments.Neverthless,it is true the Adiss and Shewan dominated political gathering is endangering the life of Ethiopins in many ways.
1- The Ethiopian Youth is daying,and the insensitive leaders are in their hide out.
2- The public moral is suffering greately for lack of qualified leaders.This man is convinced Ethiopia can only be salvaged by those who rise up and say I will pay what it takes to free my people.I have enough of the garbage Adiss based talk politics.I can not stand it any more.PLease,let us demand this leadership either to get out of the way or to make alliance with Shabia and free our people.
I have no doubt Those who continue to say let us lean on Washington and Europ one more time are Weyane cadres.Save your country now through action not talk;no one is impressed with mere talk any more,either we be united and fight this regime through practical means or it will get worest among us.We are fade up of talks.We need action now:let the leaders hear what the consern of their constituiency is saying.Let us make alliance with Shabia and A.F.D. THIS WILL BRING PRACTICAL SOLUTION QUICKER THAN ANY METHOD WE HAVE BEEN FOLLING.

I agree with the above statement, it is time to forge an alliance with the Eritreans and remove this despicable tyranny. What we are doing is not helping, it is hurting us. So far we tried it with unarmed students and we have nothing to show for, except a couple hundred dead students. It is time that we take responsibility and do something, our leaders are asking us to come up with solution NOW!!! They are waiting to be hanged untill dead. We, the Real-Ethiopian in Diaspora are doing very little. We should contribute with money and moral support as well as writing letters to our respective countries leaders to recognize our struggle for democracy and freedom. AFD is the solution to our problem. We know that only talk is nothing, we have to participate in endorsing AFD at ever opportunity we get. We should also not be ashamed of seeking help from the Eritreans as they are our neighbors and we have to help each other. Eritreans are the only one there to help militarily, but we have to ask them to intervene. The Eritreans made TPLF, and they know what TPLF's weakness is more than anybody. You have heard it from the horses mouth, Sibhat Nega, he is trying to get the Eritreans on the TPLF side, there is a huge division coming amongst the TPLF one more time this time their problem is sharing the money they have been stealing from MOTHER ETHIOPIA. This is the best moment for us to get our country back in one piece with minimum loss, we already lost 200 youth and their death must not be in vain! We have responsibility to avange their death by bringing the corrupt TPLF leadership to court.
