Ethiopia: To achieve peace, take Eritrea out of the game (The Africa Report)

Ethiopia: To achieve peace, take Eritrea out of the game


Since its independence three decades ago, Eritrea has been involved in international conflicts, ranging from minor border skirmishes with its neighbors, such as Sudan, Djibouti and Yemen, to a full-fledged conventional war with Ethiopia. Its notoriety as a regional troublemaker had resulted in the imposition of crushing sanctions lasting several years.

While the Eritrean dictator, with an assist from Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia, had sought to rehabilitate Eritrea’s image as a rogue state, Eritrea’s direct involvement in the war on Tigray since November 2020 and the massive human rights violations its forces committed and continue to commit have reaffirmed this well-deserved image.

READ MORE Ethiopia: Why Prime Minister Abiy deserves our respect

Eritrea has lost tens of thousands of its citizens in Tigray not to realise a discernible national objective but to avenge some perceived wrong that Isaias suffered at the hands of Tigrayans and validate his delusions of grandeur as a regional heavyweight.

As international human rights advocates and various institutions have amply documented, the Eritrean military has committed some of the most horrific violations of the laws of armed conflict, such as the brutalisation of civilians, the deliberate destruction of civilian installations, the plundering of private and public wealth, and the use of sexual violence as a tool of war.

Eritrea’s brutal military campaign in Tigray has received the blessing of the Abiy regime and that of the expansionist Amhara elites.

Despite deep, historical animus towards the Amhara, the Eritrean dictator has struck up a tactical alliance with the expansionist Amhara elites, a marriage of convenience facilitated by a convergence of interests.

Isaias sees Tigray as standing in the way of his dream to run wild in Ethiopia in particular and the wider region in general; similarly, Amhara expansionist elites see Tigray as impeding the restoration of a bygone era when unitarism reigned supreme.

In Western Tigray, this rogue state’s military muscle underwrites the annexation of a constitutionally established Tigrayan territory. Eritrea also illegally occupies parts of North-Western and Eastern Tigray.

saias’s alliance with Abiy and the expansionist Amhara elites has two purposes. First, by lending military support to the anti-Tigray coalition within Ethiopia, Isaias seeks to marginalise and ultimately eliminate TPLF and, by extension, Tigray as a potent force in Ethiopian politics.

Isaias has been harbouring revenge fantasies against Tigray for leading the military campaign that ended his dream of becoming the dominant political and military power on the Horn of Africa and beyond.

Specifically, Isaias had been nursing grudges against Tigrayan military and security elites, which he considers to be responsible for his embarrassing defeat on the battlefield and crushing his dream of becoming a regional kingmaker. Second, he would realise his vision of destroying the multinational federal dispensation that the people of Tigray played a major role in midwifing as well as preserving it over the past 3 decades.


All in all, Isaias saw the formation of an alliance with anti-TPLF forces as critical to removing one major stumbling block to his dream of transforming Eritrea into a regional “powerhouse” and breaking up Ethiopia into a number of mutually antagonistic units.

There is a stark irony in the alliance between the expansionist Amhara elites and the Eritrean dictator. On the one hand, Amhara elites rage against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) for presumably blessing Eritrea’s independence
. On the other hand, the same rapacious elites have entered into a Faustian bargain with the Eritrean dictator to eliminate a “problematic” domestic rival.


The expansionist Amhara elites have sought to degrade and ultimately destroy Ethiopia’s multinational federalism, vociferously arguing in favour of, and working towards, a unitary system. By contrast, Tigrayans are adamantly opposed to this unitarist vision. A system designed to govern a diverse polity such as ours is bound to have shortcomings.

Ethiopia’s current federal system is no exception. But discarding a fundamentally sound political framework that, nevertheless, needs some tweaking in favour of a unitary system that disregards Ethiopia’s objective conditions is not a solution conducive to long-term peace and stability. The return of a unitary system, by reversing hard-won autonomy and self-administration and self-determination rights, would intensify centrifugal challenges to the central state, in the process unleashing a paroxysm of violence on every corner of the country.


As for Abiy, his alliance with Eritrea has had less to do with “ending” the Ethio-Eritrea war and ensuring regional stability than eliminating a nettlesome domestic rival. The convergence of Abiy’s interest in maligning, scapegoating and neutralising the TPLF and Isaias’s desire to see the TPLF removed from Ethiopia’s political scene led to a marriage of convenience between the authoritarian duo. This marriage of convenience was consummated in a formal agreement to “end” the border conflict between the two countries

Delusional agames, idiot Gallas have twisted interpretation of "Amhara Elite". What they mean by Amhara Elite is the unitary at all cost ideology promotors like Birhanu Nega (Gurage), Andargachew Tsige (Oromo) and Professor Mesfin (Agame Enticho)

So clearly the definition of Amhara elites don't really point to Amharas, rather non-amharas who promote Ethiopian Unity. Ethiopian Unity is a noble cause but it was being promoted by denying the very existence of Amhata ethnics hence these so called elites don't really like it when Amharas promote their own ajanda and should not be called "Amhara Elites" since they are not

As to Gallas & Agames, they call everyone one Amhara elite to make it easier to target Amharas and make them suffer as they have done in the last 30 years. But there seems to be genuine kindness and understanding from the Eritrean part (minus some skunnis who have not cleared their toxic mindset from prior trash propoganda they received for years)

There is a stark irony in the alliance between the expansionist Amhara elites and the Eritrean dictator. On the one hand, Amhara elites rage against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) for presumably blessing Eritrea’s independence.

If that was possible, the Abiy, Isaias & Amhara elite alliance would have done it by now. But that is impossible. No matter how much you try, the genocide of Tigrayans from the face of the world will never ever succeeded. It has failed the same way as Holocaust has failed 80 years ago.

How about this, let the Tigre thugs continue their notorious act of genocide they have been known for over 3 decades. Does this make you feel good. Who is going to pay the price for the genocide of 5 million Amhara in 27 years by TPLF, 1000 ethnic Amhara genocide at North West Gondar Mai-Kadra by TPLF, rape of women , loot of property, and even their brutality of execution of domestic animals? The Ethiopian people, particularly Amhara people, should audit TPLF for all its heinous crime. There will not be an easy pass for the Tigre thugs. Those criminal Tigre thugs deserve to pay for their crime. Comparing the holocaust with TPLF is a wrong analogy. The TPLF is the terrorist organization that declared its own manifesto of genociding Amhara, launched and implemented genocide. So, it should pay for its crime.

There was no genocide of Amhara during TPLF's 27 years. Listen to a factual response from an Amhara politician who has fought against TPLF all his adult life.

It doesn't mean anything, in real terms.

"The genie is out of the bottle"!

The secret is out!

Eritrea's true nature & good intentions in relation to Ethiopia, has now become clear to millions & millions of ethiopians.

And that fact/knowledge is now, impossible to bottle- in again.

There is a stark irony in the alliance between the expansionist Amhara elites and the Eritrean dictator. On the one hand, Amhara elites rage against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) for presumably blessing Eritrea’s independence
. On the other hand, the same rapacious elites have entered into a Faustian bargain with the Eritrean dictator to eliminate a “problematic” domestic rival.


The expansionist Amhara elites have sought to degrade and ultimately destroy Ethiopia’s multinational federalism, vociferously arguing in favour of, and working towards, a unitary system. By contrast, Tigrayans are adamantly opposed to this unitarist vision. A system designed to govern a diverse polity such as ours is bound to have shortcomings.

Ethiopia’s current federal system is no exception. But discarding a fundamentally sound political framework that, nevertheless, needs some tweaking in favour of a unitary system that disregards Ethiopia’s objective conditions is not a solution conducive to long-term peace and stability. The return of a unitary system, by reversing hard-won autonomy and self-administration and self-determination rights, would intensify centrifugal challenges to the central state, in the process unleashing a paroxysm of violence on every corner of the country.


As for Abiy, his alliance with Eritrea has had less to do with “ending” the Ethio-Eritrea war and ensuring regional stability than eliminating a nettlesome domestic rival. The convergence of Abiy’s interest in maligning, scapegoating and neutralising the TPLF and Isaias’s desire to see the TPLF removed from Ethiopia’s political scene led to a marriage of convenience between the authoritarian duo. This marriage of convenience was consummated in a formal agreement to “end” the border conflict between the two countries

You are suffering from pathological hallucination and deep rooted inferiority complex which prevents you from knowing your miniature size and make you the grand storage of hate and permanent enemy of peace. No wonder that Amara extremists are more than eager to capture your greasy baboon behind so as to clean all the contamination and poisons so that everyone may become free from your endless mad dog barking and tired old donkey braying sessions. :lol: :lol:

These pathological liars you are calling as your (tplf) witness are being programmed, funded and bark artificial fake news 365 days in favor of their funder enabler, the tplf who in cold blood, brutal inhuman manners massacred the Federal Ethiopian Defense Forces. Besides these 365 day parrots did demand free residential government homes, free government cars, free and top level government job,etc. for them to go home and have nice times and work as feudal lords. They wanted to take the positions and amenities of the tplf but when it did not receive favorable responses it joined the tplf to bark at the democratically elected good government. Why is it then that these 365 days parrots have run away from the tplf rule during the tplf dictatorial governance and became refugees until now if Amhras were safe under the tplf tyranny? Birds of a feather flock together! :P :P

There was no genocide of Amhara during TPLF's 27 years. Listen to a factual response from an Amhara politician who has fought against TPLF all his adult life.

How about this, let the Tigre thugs continue their notorious act of genocide they have been known for over 3 decades. Does this make you feel good. Who is going to pay the price for the genocide of 5 million Amhara in 27 years by TPLF, 1000 ethnic Amhara genocide at North West Gondar Mai-Kadra by TPLF, rape of women , loot of property, and even their brutality of execution of domestic animals? The Ethiopian people, particularly Amhara people, should audit TPLF for all its heinous crime. There will not be an easy pass for the Tigre thugs. Those criminal Tigre thugs deserve to pay for their crime. Comparing the holocaust with TPLF is a wrong analogy. The TPLF is the terrorist organization that declared its own manifesto of genociding Amhara, launched and implemented genocide. So, it should pay for its crime.

Why just remove the ፋንድያ ትግሬ ሌባ from the face of the earth?
If that was possible, the Abiy, Isaias & Amhara elite alliance would have done it by now. But that is impossible. No matter how much you try, the genocide of Tigrayans from the face of the world will never ever succeeded. It has failed the same way as Holocaust has failed 80 years ago.

No one can call Eritreans as extremists by any definition of the word. Eritrea is a country and an independent state endowed with excellent strategic location, abundant resources and admirably patience. You have seen how the patient Eritreans withstood cold blooded unprovoked missile attacks by the hot headed tplf pathological war mongering outlaws.

The Afar people are of different mental mind set because they are kushitics and understand the values of self defense and the values of government and its roles. Can you swear with your hands on your heart saying that there are no Amhara extremist elements making troubles all over the places using multiple card games?

I am not blaming all Amaras but only the behavior of some very few noisy extremist elements shouting day and night who think that they are a state within a state, hence can dictate terms and conditions to the federal government.

Also these traditional Amara extremist chest pumping baboon world views that it must be their language, their culture, their religion, their values, their traditions as a whole which must be the standard one size fit all for all preaching and insisting dirty behavior. Ethiopia is what we have together and that is the level at which we have to cooperate, build peace, spread democracy and pluralism, work hard and grow healthy, wealthy and happy.

Ethiopia: To achieve peace, take Eritrea out of the game


Since its independence three decades ago, Eritrea has been involved in international conflicts, ranging from minor border skirmishes with its neighbors, such as Sudan, Djibouti and Yemen, to a full-fledged conventional war with Ethiopia. Its notoriety as a regional troublemaker had resulted in the imposition of crushing sanctions lasting several years.

While the Eritrean dictator, with an assist from Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia, had sought to rehabilitate Eritrea’s image as a rogue state, Eritrea’s direct involvement in the war on Tigray since November 2020 and the massive human rights violations its forces committed and continue to commit have reaffirmed this well-deserved image.

READ MORE Ethiopia: Why Prime Minister Abiy deserves our respect

Eritrea has lost tens of thousands of its citizens in Tigray not to realise a discernible national objective but to avenge some perceived wrong that Isaias suffered at the hands of Tigrayans and validate his delusions of grandeur as a regional heavyweight.

As international human rights advocates and various institutions have amply documented, the Eritrean military has committed some of the most horrific violations of the laws of armed conflict, such as the brutalisation of civilians, the deliberate destruction of civilian installations, the plundering of private and public wealth, and the use of sexual violence as a tool of war.

Eritrea’s brutal military campaign in Tigray has received the blessing of the Abiy regime and that of the expansionist Amhara elites.

Despite deep, historical animus towards the Amhara, the Eritrean dictator has struck up a tactical alliance with the expansionist Amhara elites, a marriage of convenience facilitated by a convergence of interests.

Isaias sees Tigray as standing in the way of his dream to run wild in Ethiopia in particular and the wider region in general; similarly, Amhara expansionist elites see Tigray as impeding the restoration of a bygone era when unitarism reigned supreme.

In Western Tigray, this rogue state’s military muscle underwrites the annexation of a constitutionally established Tigrayan territory. Eritrea also illegally occupies parts of North-Western and Eastern Tigray.

saias’s alliance with Abiy and the expansionist Amhara elites has two purposes. First, by lending military support to the anti-Tigray coalition within Ethiopia, Isaias seeks to marginalise and ultimately eliminate TPLF and, by extension, Tigray as a potent force in Ethiopian politics.

Isaias has been harbouring revenge fantasies against Tigray for leading the military campaign that ended his dream of becoming the dominant political and military power on the Horn of Africa and beyond.

Specifically, Isaias had been nursing grudges against Tigrayan military and security elites, which he considers to be responsible for his embarrassing defeat on the battlefield and crushing his dream of becoming a regional kingmaker. Second, he would realise his vision of destroying the multinational federal dispensation that the people of Tigray played a major role in midwifing as well as preserving it over the past 3 decades.


All in all, Isaias saw the formation of an alliance with anti-TPLF forces as critical to removing one major stumbling block to his dream of transforming Eritrea into a regional “powerhouse” and breaking up Ethiopia into a number of mutually antagonistic units.

"The use or threat of sanctions against Abiy and his regime can still have an impact on bringing him to the negotiating table. But absent robust measures that significantly affect the Eritrean dictator’s cost-benefit calculus, the quest for peace will prove elusive. As an experienced leader of a rogue state, the Eritrean dictator has practically authored a manual for how to navigate a treacherous international diplomatic terrain.

Only sufficiently robust actions that create disincentives for the Isaias regime against continual involvement in the Ethiopian conflict have a reasonable chance of helping bring about a peaceful resolution of the current conflict."

No matter how much Alex de waal rants & threatens Eritrea & Ethiopia & no matter how much he tries to personalize the issue into just PIA or PMAA using Debritz as a pen, he can never change the fact that the entire HoA population viscerally hates his murderous terror group hiding in Meqele and wants nothing less than its total destruction.

He might try to buy a little time for them & maybe even succeed, but can't stop that final outcome.

What's sorely lacking right now is for the tegaru to forcefully join their compatriot Ethiopians and the peoples of the Region, to make that a reality. The cancer must be excised & people like you, if your hands aren't bloodied, must stop with your nonsense support for a black nazi group in a terminal state.
