Did President Aforq back the wrong horse?

Post by eden » 28 Jun 2019, 13:04

One year into reform bound Ethiopian political life. TPLF retreated and stayed out of federal affairs the entire year. OPDO took charge. ANDM dumped TPLF and served OPDO - so far, that is.

Eritrea ruler backed OPDO. OPDO may lose ANDM due to ANDM ongoing infighting. TPLF stayed intact economically, militarily and security wise. America foreign policy seems to favor the existing federal arrangement.

Where is power headed and did President Aforq back the wrong horse?

How the f**k is it a wrong horse.
Eritrea doesn't give a crap who is at the helm of ethiopia's leadership except that it is not woyane aka tplf and as long the ethio leader who ever might be wants to make peace with Eritrea and as long as he recognizes the rule of international laws specially concerning Eritrea.
Who the f**k horse do you have in mind that PIA should have picked then?
Resah, chenawit agame.

For you to ask a question, you have to produce other choices.
And beside PMAA who was or is in Ethiopia who willingly want to meet ot halfway for the sake of peace.
So, who is the horse you have in mind?

Shut the hell up you idiot.

Yes I am for a united (unfragmented) sovereign Ethiopia and the ever united sovereing Eritrea to be at peace respecting each other and working to benefit their respective nationals.

I know how you work you wedi gahba, megal, qosal, assawi, chemawi mitra agame.
Raping your children, your mom, your sister, your wife with a rusty craw bar does not mean raping any other children, as you usually twist it.
So, yes I want Ethiopia to stay intact, be peace with itself and with all its neighbors including Eritrea.

What a well-thought- out question indeed, Eden? Not only the question, but also your answers for your own question are superb. I am joking, Eden. The president of Eritrea, I think , does not care about the personality or party that might have the lion share in Ethiopian politics. I take that back. I have a feeling he does not seem to like TPLF running the show. He might consider them backstabbers. But I believe he got that wrong. The TPLF politicians better be described as opportunists. As for the TPLF running away from the federal government, I have a different take. TPLF still plays role in the Federal government, but its dominance went to grave a year ago. The general who was killed a few days ago was the highest officer of the military, and I have not heard a rumor of him tearing his TPLF card and joining the Oromo faction of EPDRF. Only, one sentence of of yours make sense, and the rest is a hearsay. That is the Amhara faction of EPDRF had a fallout with TPLF. But that one true statment of yours was overshadowed by another lie. The Amhara faction of EPDRF, you said, serves the interest of the Oromo faction of EPDRF. Let me refresh your memory. The Amhara faction of EPDRF chose not to be dictated by TPLF. Why you think they chose to be dominated by the Oromo faction of EPDRF? I believe your superb mind has answer for it. Or is it my wild imagination!

Lowlanderu,

We in Eritrea call him Afeweqi, not Aforq.

Just saying, as my bro Fed would say!

I think they chose to be dominated by ODP because they figured that gave them an edge over the popular ABN and the faction within themselves like General Asamnew that works with ABN.

By the way, you can see this worked for them already. ODP, using the fed, saved them from this faction and ABN.

The real question for me is why ODP choces to dominate ADP. This is repeating TPLF error. ODP should look for genuine Amara representatives and equal partners, not a puppet.

Eden, you read headlines, not details. Your assertion that NAMA is popular is not true. The NAMA politicians have been the guys who handed slogans to eight- years old kids in Debrebrehan a few months ago. The NAMA politicians appeal to the noisemakers, who by definition are the extremists. These are not people who seek a common ground in politics. They are by definition anti democracy. They aapproach politics it is our way or the highway motto. The recent killings in Bahirdar and Addis prove that they have no the mental ability to entertain political differences rationally. Yes, NAMA is the photocopy of TPLF. They believe like TPLF in we versus them politics. But that does not mean the TPLF guys are in love with them. They are their nightmares. If we allow the extremists of every Ethiopian tribes to dictate politics , having a unified Ethiopia will be difficult. I am not worrying about the article 39 nonsense. Even God himself cannot make a common boundary that puts the Debrehbrhean, Shows Amhara and the Armacho, Gonder Amhara together. That is fantasy.
As for your worry about why the Amhara’s function of EPDRF allow themselves to be dictated , you seemed to have given an answer for it. You said because NAMA is popular. But still you keep worrying. Your confused mind try to confuse me. Let me try to untangle your confusion. Honest talk.
Eden, you do not believe the Amhara faction of EPDRF is dictated by the Oromo faction of EPDRF. You do not believe that. you are not that stupid. But you want the Amhara faction of EPDRF to rekindle their old friendship with TPLF. In other words you need to isolate the Oromo faction of EPDRF. That you might believe once again makes TPLF the king makers. It is not going to happen , Eden.

What I'm wondering about is: where are the Assaminews of Eritrea who can take the savage Agame out?
