Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed Lost His War, And Now He’s Out for Revenge

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 6, 2021

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed was once the toast of the international stage. On December 10, 2019, he delivered his Nobel Lecture at the Oslo City Hall after winning the Nobel Peace Prize. “I…accept this award on behalf of Africans and citizens of the world for whom the dream of peace has often turned into a nightmare of war,” Abiy said.

In less than a year, however, Abiy would unleash the nightmare of war. Those who know him—not only Ethiopians but also fellow African leaders—describe in Abiy a noxious combination of naiveté, ego, and ambition. When Abiy, like other reformers-turned-dictators before him, unilaterally postponed elections, officials in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region defied his prohibition and held the vote as originally scheduled. The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), one-time partners of Abiy who had fallen into opposition—triumphed in polls that were largely free and fair.

There is nothing more dangerous than a Nobel Peace Laureate scorned. In the wake of election, Abiy sent his forces into Tigray where, alongside Eritrean troops, they perpetrated massacres, ethnic cleansing, collective punishment, and mass rape. Ethiopian diplomats and their state-controlled media repeatedly either denied atrocities or blamed them on the TPLF. Abiy’s government, meanwhile, continued to target older, more established Tigrayan leaders in a short-term strategy that prioritized vengeance over unity as the old guard TPLF leaders such as former foreign minister Seyoum Mesfin were the primary voices among the Tigrayan movement to value Ethiopian nationalism; the younger generation sees little to any benefit in remaining part of Ethiopia’s multi-ethnic mosaic.

Few outside Addis Ababa, however, believed Ethiopian denials: Countries innocent of such charges do not prevent access to the territories alleged to be site of humanitarian crimes. Nor is it possible to coordinate the narratives of refugees and eyewitnesses fleeing war.

Nevertheless, in recent months, Abiy’s government has repeatedly said that they had defeated the TPLF, and dismissed anyone raising questions about the situation in Tigray as engaging in propaganda, even as videos emerged of Ethiopian troops captured en masse by the TPLF. Then, the TPLF re-took the regional capital Mekelle. That action was a shock to Ethiopians whom Abiy and state-controlled television daily assured that Ethiopia had roundly defeated the Tigrayans.

Taking his cue from dictators like Belarus dictator Alexander Lukashenko, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Abiy has now decided to seek revenge on journalists who dared to speak the truth. Consider the case of Tsedale Lemma, chief editor of the English-language Addis Standard, an independent outlet which has sought to cover events in Tigray fairly.  On July 3, Seyoum Tehome, a pro-government blogger, suggested summarily executing an imprisoned journalist and advised arresting Lemma. In effect, those surrounding Abiy and amplifying his bubble now seek to ensure that failure to uphold Abiy’s delusions is a capital crime. In Minsk, Moscow, and Ankara, such castigations are often lethal.

The United States is at its best and most effective when it stands up for freedom in a bipartisan way. It is time for Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the Congressional Black Caucus (full disclosure: I was in the past a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation fellow) and the Republican leadership as well to tell Abiy that the world is watching, and that retribution against Ethiopian journalists for telling the truth will have real and biting consequence.

Abiy and his associates may believe they can pivot to China or whether any sanctions, but they would be foolish to believe that they will personally escape unscathed.

God Is Going To Judge America Because She Loves The Sins That Cry To Heaven For Vengeance

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 24, 2019

America is falling apart from within and has been for some time for many reasons. Some will point to economic decline, others to political arguing, and different issues for others. Some do not believe that such a decline is taking place in spite of the obvious signs, such as the disappearance of pensions, growing job instability, rising prices for commodities, reduced salaries, lower quality in products, and the general hatred that now defines average public discourse.

However, something that has not changed is the American love of the sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance. This has only grown proportionately since World War II, and indeed existed and was growing well before World War II.

The latter two- the oppression of the widow and the orphan and the deprivation of the working man of his justly earned wages -have existed for a long time, and are tied to the American embrace of the sin of usury, the use of corporatism as a way to legally shield business criminals from responsibility for their actions, and the use of America’s financial position to print money and in combination with military might to be able to extract value from others nations in a one-sided manner without any regard for the humanity of other nations. It is not a sin to make profit or to do well, but it is a sin to do so through immoral means and without repentance.

The sin of Sodom speaks for itself. America has made herself not just the world financial power, but the world enforcer of the LGBT agenda, demanding nations bend over for the sodomite agenda on condition of receiving foreign aid. No nation in the world would dare to follow the Biblical injunction against homosexuality, because if they did then America would not only economically destroy them, but she would probably use it as a pretext to invade and destroy the entire nation before forcing sodomy on that nation. While there are many nations who have embraced this perversity, much of it has spread due to monies coming from the US and her owners in finance and heavy industry, of which a clearly disproportionate number have direct ties Israel, who is not only America’s most “important ally” in the Middle East, but is one of the most pro-Sodomite nations on Earth.

Lastly, there is the abortion issue. Russia was the first nation in the world to legalize abortion following the October Revolution of 1917. However, it is known that the Bolsheviks came to power because of financial backing from American and Jewish-American families as well as logistics and assistance provided by Germany. Thus, Russia’s legalization of abortion was a direct consequence of American sociopolitical machinations, and given the fact that it was American eugenics programs that were the basis for the Aktion T-4 eugenics program of the German National Socialists, one cannot separate the history of abortion from US policy and actions. What she brought to other nations was eventually imposed on the US in 1973 with the Roe v. Wade case, and since then has shown itself to only grow in power in spite of the opposition of many people.

Abortion is not going anywhere because it is tied to the support of many businesses, financial investments, and military research projects in the US and abroad. The opposition to it, while important and necessary, is at this point more of a show because no fundamental changes are going to be made.

I have warned that the biggest danger which the US faces is not an attack from another nation, but her own infrastructure being assaulted from within and looking like an accident, which if targeted could cause serious damage to the nation and even chaos that could either force a US withdrawal from other conflicts to deal with domestic issues, or could open the way to an actual military attack of sorts.

In July 2018, I mentioned the fact that in addition to man-made weaknesses, the US has a series of structural problems built into the nation itself that could seriously weaken or destroy her. These include the supervolcano in Montana and Wyoming, the New Madrid Fault Line that is the Mississippi River and could split the nation in half, and the San Andreas Fault, which could sink California into the Pacific Ocean.

America is a blessed nation with the potential for great good. However, much of the good she has been blessed with she has squandered, choosing instead to do evil and to force others to accept her evils. She has embraced as a part of her laws the sins which cry out to heaven for vengeance, and instead of turning to God she has rejected God and continues to mock Him.

For the sake of the good people in the US who believe and desire to do what is morally right, the actions that one sees taking place is not a call for political action, but for prayer and personal action. It is a premonition of impending judgement on the nation for her sins.

To the wise Christian, NOW is the time to prepare. There are many examples of how to do this- getting rid of all debts that one carries, learning how to grow food, reducing personal expenses, and improving the state of one’s personal health to start.

A World War is coming, and this is well-known by political and social trends. It is known that this time America will likely not be spared the effects of war. However, it would be very interesting if at the same time that this conflict takes place, that she has a major earthquake, a volcanic eruption, or both and more.

I don’t want this to happen for the same reason I don’t want it to happen to anybody in another nation. It would mean a lot of death and suffering, especially of innocent and good people. However, nobody can deny that if one really believes that God’s word is true, that there are some sins which cry to Heaven for vengeance, and that America defines herself by the embrace and love of these sins and she is starting another major war, that she will likely not escape punishment for her sins.

Prepare yourselves accordingly, because this is just the beginning.
