The extraordinary documentary grabs by the tusk the biggest elephant in the room: The disintegration of Ethiopia from festering ethnic hatred, corruption and political repression of the TPLF.  Continue reading Ethiopia and The Failed State Documentary

U.S. Ignoring Ethiopia to Become a Failing State (Documentary)

UNDER ONE ETHNIC RULE. Ethiopia is heading on to full-fledged failed state and U.S. own intelligence reports confirm this. The disintegration of Ethiopia will inevitably lead to the disintegration of the horn. Time is of the essence and the issue needs to be immediately confronted.

By E – Veracity,

ETHIOPIA is at a crossroad. The internal social-economic and religious inter-relationship is in turmoil. Much of the conflict is along ethnic lines that have been ever growing since the current government’s grasp to power. The current government in Ethiopia has been in power for a total of almost 24 years, and it is based on a single ethnic minority group. The government has made sure to control all sectors of the country with its own ethnic group. The military, religious, and economic composition has always and still continues to revolve around the Tigray ethnic group.

U.S. Cannot Save Ethiopia from TPLF

History shows many things have “gone with the wind”. We should all know that “He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind.” The late dictator Meles and his TPLF disciples today profoundly troubled every Ethiopian house and the house of their neighboring states and for that, they shall inherit the wind – soon!

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

Does Ethiopia need saving and why? For those that follow the region closely, the signs are clear that Ethiopia faces imminent instability. Absent of divine intervention there appears no credible movement that can bring peaceful change in Ethiopia. The people of Ethiopia tried for years unsuccessfully to have their voice expressed at the ballot box and found it impossible. Continue reading U.S. Cannot Save Ethiopia from TPLF
