Ethiopia used its flagship commercial airline to transport weapons during war in Tigray
(CNN)- Ethiopia's government has used the country's flagship commercial airline to shuttle weapons to and from neighboring Eritrea during the civil war in Ethiopia's Tigray region, a CNN investigation has found. Cargo documents and manifests seen by CNN, as well as eyewitness accounts and photographic evidence, confirm that arms were transported between Addis Ababa's international airport and airports in the Eritrean cities of Asmara and Massawa

Re-imagining the Ethiopia Crisis: What the U.S. Can Do
Elias Dawit 10-04-21 - The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is in a tough spot. Every day the U.S. issues another warning about the humanitarian crisis in Tigray while its food aid sits in warehouses-unable to move because the Ethiopian government is hell-bent on starving the people of Tigray. Not even USAID's administrator, Samantha Power, has been able to move this food despite an official visit to Ethiopia where she was ignored by Abiy Ahmed. Ms. Power had accused Abiy Ahmed....
Very well articulated and reasoned suggestion on how to end the conflict between Abiy's Ethiopia and Tigray. We wish if friends and supporters in Diaspora can save their energy spent elsewhere and concentrate on the United States. Pressuring the White House to use its limitless power will go a long way than pressuring an inept international community. Way to Go Elias!!!

Urgent Call for Direct Aerial Delivery of Humanitarian Aid to Tigray.
GSTS 10-05-21 - It has been over three months since the World Food Program (WFP)1 said it was hoping for air bridge to Tigray to deliver desperately needed humanitarian supplies. The 11- month-old war and 3-months long de-facto humanitarian aid blockade by the Ethiopian government and its allies...Air bridges and air drops have been successfully used for humanitarian access in various countries, including in Syria, Sudan, and Afghanistan, for a number of besieged and hard-to-reach communities. The believes the desperate situation in Tigray requires immediate similar interventions to end to the inhumane siege

UN Secretary-General rebuffs Ethiopia's demand for senior UN officials to leave the country
(CNN)- The United Nations has rebuffed Ethiopia's decision to expel seven senior UN officials as the country's war-torn northern Tigray region descends into famine, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Friday.. Guterres told the President of the UN Security Council on Friday -- in a letter seen by CNN -- "If the current trajectory continues, I fear for the future of many Ethiopian lives, and indeed for the stability of the country and the region....

Ezana Sehay 2021-10-03 - At the end of the most devastating war ever [WW2], the human race made two new set of rules which are mutually incompatible. To break the endless cycle of wars we simply made it illegal for one country to attack another or meddle in others’ internal affairs. Such rule made sovereignty absolute.

'Back to square zero': Ethiopia's Oromos rebuke Abiy at festival
At the first sound of gunfire, Lelise Abdissa leapt into a ditch for cover, only to be crushed by other panicked revellers as Ethiopian troops clashed with protesters during a religious festival five years ago.
We really do not care anymore about anything that happens inside the failed Ethiopian state but the title of this article was so telling, we wanted to share it with you, our esteemed readers! The Qerro so-called revolution may have succeeded defeating Desalgn Hailemariam government but it has created a monster and a failed state. Let us see if Abiy is kind enough to allow himself removed from power like his predecessor. They both are evangelical Christians so must have the same God that tells them people's power must be heed right? Anyways, like Getachew Reda said on his Facebook page, Tigray nonetheless is moving on with its mission to undo the siege it is facing and unlike Qerro it is using force to be free and determine its future.

Tigray Government Statement on the Expulsion of UN High Officials - Oct 01, 2021

U.N. Security Council to discuss Ethiopia expulsion of U.N. staff
NEW YORK, Oct 1 (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council will privately discuss on Friday a decision by Ethiopia to expel seven senior U.N. officials, diplomats said, as malnutrition rates rise and famine looms in the country's war-torn northern region of Tigray.

Denouncing Decision by Ethiopian Regime to Expel High-Level United Nations Officials

On New Amhara President
Readers Comment
- Readers! Are you amazed as I do about the proud Amhara People's predicament they are in? How did they fall for Abiy to continuously dehumanize and belittle them? In less than three years he appointed five different presidents and yet the elites among them are saying for so long? All my life, I thought Amhara were nationalist and one of the main pillars holding Ethiopia together. Not anymore! I am questioning myself if I were wrong to think as such for so long? What happened to the people? Do you know the answer?

Where is the outrage for Ethiopia?
(CNN)The sudden fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban has rightly drawn much of the world's ire and attention .And yet, much to our distress, for nearly a year the world has paid comparatively little attention to another brutal and escalating conflict; the catastrophic violence in Ethiopia. Tigrayan women and girls are being subjected to sexual abuse with "a level of cruelty beyond comprehension ."In media reports, local medics have described removing nails and rocks from the bodies of victims. Again, we ask: Where is the outrage?

Numbers Don't Lie!
Aesop 09/25/2021 - Nowadays, we hear Derg 2.0 (2018-2021) overtly dehumanizing Tigreans. It does this because it does not expect any consequences. It does not expect any consequences because its mindset is fixed on comparative census. Derg 2.0's mindset (and rhetoric) is hinged on these numbers. This "logic" goes like this: 1) Premise: Tigrai's population is 20 times smaller than the rest of Ethiopia. 2) Transition/Leap Frogging: Tigrai is at least twenty times less powerful than the rest of Ethiopia, 3) Conclusion: wiping off Tigreans should be easy. This "logic" makes a false equivalence between census and power/victory

The AP Interview: Ethiopia crisis 'stain on our conscience'
The United Nations humanitarian chief calls the crisis in Ethiopia a "stain on our conscience" as children and others starve to death in the Tigray region under what the U.N. calls a de facto government blockade of food, medical supplies and fuel
Glad to know the UN has people with a moral conscience to know Tigrayans are suffering because the UN is failing to do the only job it is good for. The AU on the other hand, unfortunately, is proving what the international community thinks of them. They are bunch of subhuman that are capable to allow genocide to happen right under their nose. Tigray will prevail soon but the shame for the UN and AU will live ever!

All: By now you should all be well informed and aware about how social media has been used to destroy the social fabric of society all over the world. Multiple studies show negative and false news spread across all social media platforms like wildfire. For that reason, Abiy and the company have been using it to spread false news about the war in Tigray. The latest is the rumor going around many YouTube channels about the imminent capture of Mekelle by Abiy forces. This is pure lie and fabrication. Our reliable source from Mekelle told us that Tigray Army is poised to take the final action on Abiy and Amhara forces. Let alone capturing Mekelle Abiy is in no position to protect Dese and Gondar from Tigray Army. Aigaforum Sept 28, 2021

S&P pushes Ethiopia's ratings into junk territory on delayed debt restructuring
Sept 24 (Reuters) - Ratings agency S&P Global cut Ethiopia's sovereign rating to 'CCC+' from 'B-' on Friday, citing heightened political instability and delays to debt restructuring. War broke out 10 months ago between Ethiopia's federal troops and forces loyal to the Tigray People's Liberation Front, which controls Tigray, and spread into the neighboring regions of Amhara and Afar in July.
As we said before again and again, Ethiopia is a failed state. Period. It was a promising country but no more! It has credit not even worthy of junk. It is really sad Tigrayans died to preserve this empire for this long. How TPLF and many of us got fooled to waste our time and energy building a house on sand is beyond me. I am ashamed of myself and I hope you too are so we can have a clear common vision going forward.

Tigray crisis: Why are hundreds of aid trucks stranded?
The UN says hundreds of aid trucks which made the journey up to Tigray from other parts of Ethiopia between mid-July and mid-September have not returned. The UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), has made clear that the reasons cited by drivers not wanting to go back "are a lack of fuel to return, as well as drivers fearing for their security."

Response to Tewedros Teshome
Mered September 23, 2021 - Tewedros Teshome is one of Abiye's latest mouthpieces and arsenal to go public against the Tigray people. He claimed that he has Tigrian friends and has nothing to do with the Tigrians. That is very funny. His entire narration is degrading, humiliating and painting Tigrians as traitors and enemies of Ethiopia. He joined the armies of propagandists working for Abiye. First, I thought that it was not worth recognizing him. It is better to ignore and not provide him with a platform. However, when I browsed...

Why the United Nation's Security Council is erroneous On Human Rights Investigations and its contemplation in Tigrai?
B. Tewelde 09-16-21 - A shattering and genocidal war was waged against the people of Tigrai because they firmly fought for their right to self-determination and they held a democratic election. Abiy Ahmed invited forces, including the Eritrean army, Somali, and others, and they massacred the people. The invasion and massacre have continued. So does the struggle of the people of Tigrai. That's why, the United Nation's Security Council, a powerful organ with the mandate to impose sanctions and military actions, has discussed the issue of Tigrai.

How Chinese Ballistic Missiles and Iranian Drones Popped Up In Ethiopia's Civil War in Tigray
Amidst reports of atrocities, indiscriminate airstrikes, regional spillover, and dramatic battlefield reversals, the escalating conflict was marked in its early days by long-distance attacks by advanced missile and artillery systems imported from China. Furthermore, there have been persistent claims of the use of armed drones which remained unverified until this summer.

Daniel Kibret: A Strange Way to Make a Living
Kalayu Abrha 09-23-21 - A queer version of specter of Nazism is haunting the World. This time it came not from Europe but from Africa; not from some renowned personality but from a good for nothing in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa. This person is a contradiction: He poses as a man of God, but he is a vicious blood thirsty beast; his fiery oratory pushes multitudes into barbarous actions, but he is a real coward hiding in the comfort of the renovated Arat-Killo office.

Tigray Government Statement on Humanitarian aid trucks to Tigray - 22 Sept 2021
Tigray Govt 9-22-21 - On September 16, 2021, UN Ethiopia, on its official twitter account, expressed concern that aid trucks that had come to Tigray have not returned yet. This statement was issued on the heels of an official statement from, among others, the Ministry of Peace with an identical message, hinting at an apparent coordination. Predictably, various media outlets affiliated with the Abiy Ahmed regime were busy amplifying UN Ethiopia's statement with the dangerous insinuation that either the trucks were being commandeered for a different purpose...

US: Ethiopia, Tigray Actors Can Avoid Sanctions by Ending Conflict
NAIROBI - The U.S. government is urging the Ethiopian government, rebel group Tigray People's Liberation Front, and other warring factions to end the conflict in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region and allow humanitarian aid to reach millions in need of assistance. Unless the conflict stops, key officials could be facing U.S. travel and financial sanctions.
It is irritating to read a US official blaming the aggressor and the victim equally in this conflict. TPLF led government of Tigray has accepted President Biden's call for a ceasefire provided essential services are turned on and status quo is respected. What else is the US asking from Tigray Govt? The US should not expect negotiation to start while the whole Tigray is under siege and Eritrean and Amhara militias are occupying Western Tigray and killing innocent Tigrayans throwing them into the Tekeze river daily!

Remarks by President Biden Before the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly
We cannot give up on solving raging civil conflicts, including in Ethiopia and Yemen, where fighting between warring parties is driving famine, horrific violence, human rights violations against civilians, including the unconscionable use of rape as a weapon of war.
Mr. President, Thank you for becoming the voice for the voiceless! Mr. President, you have the legal and moral authority to do something about it. Do not fail the heroic people of Tigray. The people are resilient and will do everything to remain independent but can use your help in taming Nato member countries and US-friendly countries from arming the genocidal Abiy Ahmed and Isaias Afeworki regimes.
