How many times have we heard Debretsion and Getachew Reda escape from the noose on a mule or a donkey while countless Generals, Colonels and their army is decimated. I have thought about it and it appears to me that Dr. Abiy is keeping the two men, and possibly other leaders of the TPLF, alive. The hardliners such as Sium Mesfin, Abay Tsehaie, Getachew Assefa, Alem Gebrewahid have been sent to their maker. But the TPLF soft-belly Getachew Reda and Debetsion are still alive not because the Ethiopia military could not eliminate them but because a political decision has been taken to keep them alive. Already Getachew is weeping like a baby. Debretsion must have exhausted his tears as he is directly responsible for the catastrophe that has befallen Agames. Sooner or later, these cry-babies will surrender.
Abiy's strategy is a big mistake. The only way to deal with a criminal gang like the TPLF is a merciless and decisive action to obliterate it. But Abiy has been dithering, giving the TPLF multiple "this is the final warning" ultimata. That only emboldens the opponent. And in the case of people like the Tigrayans, who have a very distorted view of reality, it may make them believe their lies that the only reason Abiy has not done it is because they are winning. There is still time. He should erase the soft-belly and give Agames the shock they need to wake up from their state of denial. That is how the Sri Lankans dealt with the Tamil Tigers. That is how Nigeria solved the Biafran issue. That is how the USA dealt with the South. By totally defeating the insurrection.
