Take your amateurish advice and s$ove it! Those of us who are supporting the dramatic change that is taking place in Ethiopia, are not naive to think that everything is under control. Ethiopia, a country that has been molested by the traitor, greedy and ultra ethno nationalist TPLF for nearly 3 decades would no doubt continue to have very rough future ahead for some time. The effects of ultra ethno nationalism and the accompanying moral decadence, will continue to be with us for some time. With a generation old sabotaging by the TPLF, the country is expected to have more challenges. No one has any illusion on that.banebris2013 wrote: ↑04 Dec 2020, 18:55Let me start by crudely be on the same page with you about what the TPLF did to Ethiopia and Ethiopians in their reign of 27 years.
If you see the war in the lens of Amara elites and Amhara politics, your opinion could be absolutely right. Besides the current situation is only a month old. You might tell me everything is under control given how much area of Tigray is under the army. but that does not tell the whole story.
Yes TPLF have limited options to continue with the war due to geography. They might find it difficult to have continuous supply to keep fighting in any form. But there are developing issues out side Ethiopia that might affect the whole situation in Ethiopia. Government tells its citizens everything is under control again and again just to calm citizens and gain support for what is going on. That is called politics. For example government was saying they have destroyed the so called OLF-shanee several time for the past two years. But still blames OLF shanee for committing atrocities.
Derg was feeding the public that everything is under control until 1988/89 when they no longer can lie about the situation. EPRDF did the same for some extent.
So i am not sure how things develop in year or so. One thing i am sure about is that things are not as under control as the government wants us to believe.
So even if i am disappointed with the current Ethiopian politics, i still hope Dr Abiy will implement the politics he promised when he came to power. That means he has to make some adjustments. Mind you politics sometimes is about perception. For example the perception of PM Abiy among some Oromos is that he is promoting Amhara politics. It is only PM Abiy who can prove this people wrong. Otherwise some facts on the ground support the perception i mentioned above. Take yourself for example: You are confident things are on the right direction ( possibly you are amhara and think amhara is beneficiary from the war). Me (non amhara) on the other hand have reservation. I am in the category of wait and see.
But one thing is sure! The divisive and hegemonic era of the TPLF is over. After the darkness that will no doubt continue for some time, Ethiopia will certainly embark on a bright path of stability, prosperity and justice.
