The Oromo history is that of heroism - Oromos enslaved Amhara and Sidama! Why blame the Oromos for that ?

Post by Democrat » 16 Jun 2019, 03:12

The Amhara elites have been putting Oromos in dark light. The Oromos are seen as migrants. This is not true. The Oromos invaded Ethiopia or Abyssinia and conquered it. This is the bitter truth for Abysinians but The Oromos should be celebrating their victory over Abysinians and other tribes in South Ethiopia.

The histography in Ethiopia favours Amhara and shows them as victims who had to resist Galla or Oromo invasion. But the point is the Oromo conquered and enslaved Amharas. With the rise of Twederos, the amharas manipulated the situation and enslaved Oromos as Menelik succeeded to pacify the Southern regions by using arms he got from Italy and othr countries. The Oromos were resisting with a traditional army using bows and arrows and spears.

Oromos should celebrate their victory over Amhara and other tribes. The history of Oromo is that of heroism and a conquesta spirit. The Oromos should not be ashamed of thier past, which is filled with glory and heroism.

We should recognise about the Oromo people war against Amhara and Southern people. The Oromo are the only tribe in africa that ruled and controled a country in 16 and 17th century.

The Amhara lie and fasification presented the Oromos as primitive. I thought they were right and saw the Oromos as such as the Amharas used to tell us. But the evidence shows Oromos contolled Wello and Gondar and South Tigray (Raya). The Oromo were a very clever people and still are ( though weaker now). Who on earth would kill the able male population only to win a war? No one has done it in history. This was a good strategy to win a war. Kill all abled men and protect the women children, adopting to Oromo families.

The Amhara would kill evey one in their campaign against Oromos led by Menelik. Many Oromos were killed because Menelik had the guns. The Mnelik army took land from the oromos, displacing them. Menelik cut breasts of Oromo women and took the men as slaves. This should hadve a very traumatic experience for all Oromos. Menelik used some Oromos to fight against the Oromo people.

Gobena and many other Oromo were made generals by Menelik. Gobena killed many Oromos to satisfy the demands of Menelik. Menelik was a very abled strategist, but not as good the Oromo leaders.

agame boy, it's easy to see what you are trying to do; foment conflict between oromos and other ethiopians.
first of all, we do not need you to brag or boast on our behalf, our history speaks for itself.
instead, tell us about the great land of the grasshopper, yohannes the head-less emperor, and alula.

I speak the truth about Oromos. The Amhara are evil people. It is better for the Oromo to have their own country without the Amhara. The Amhara are parasites.
I care about Oromos because they have a good history of survival. They were cheated by Amhara and were made slaves. TheAmhara took Oromo lands and many Oromos were turned landless serfs.

Agame boy, we do not need you tell us what's best for us, we know what is best for us, and we have no need for the advice of agame enemies.
worry about your own people and keep your advise for your own people; we do not need it.

Please don't dramatize and try to use historical events for the purpose of promoting unhealthy divisions for your own goals rather than cooperation since the future is what matters for all of us.

The last advice we take is from TPLF. We don't want your advice.
