Just imagine if this was Asmara

Post by AbyssiniaLady » 20 Jan 2022, 19:32

Blaming Eritrea's misery on the west constantly is wrong, the west has never invaded Eritrea!!

This is not a movie, It is USA troops in a helicopter over Mogadishu, USA soldiers killed thousands of Somalis that afternoon, After Somalis shoot down two US helicopters, the USA troops panicked, shooting at everything that moved. Somalis are the real victims of the West/neocolonialism.

Eritrea is a lucky country.

US Eritrea Policy, Misguided and Harmful

By Amanuel Biedemariam

JUNE 16, 2013


US Eritrea policy has always been to subjugate Eritrea and place it under the custodianship of Ethiopia

How can Americans measure the effectiveness of US policy on a given nation? What are the benchmarks on how, or what these agendas, objectives or values are based upon? Do US have interests in Eritrea and what are these interests? How does US Eritrea relation, benefit Americans and so forth…

In the US, hardly anyone can answer these questions; including those in government. Moreover, when it is an obscure country, alien to the average citizen, say Eritrea, the likelihood of Americans having knowledge is nil or slightly above zero.

These types of questions are what Americans need to ask if they want to understand why people feel the ways that they do about the US, be it positive or negative. They need to take a proactive approach, to have a say on US policies and their relationship with the world. That is the only way that they can control their destiny, as it relates to the world. It is a way, they can hold governmental and political leaders accountable. And instead of basing their views, opinions and perceptions on what diplomats, politicians, media, governmental or nongovernmental agencies say, they can decide on matters based on concrete understanding of the world first hand.

As an Eritrean-American, one who is personally affected by US policies on Eritrea and as a longtime observer of US policies of the region; it is critical to appeal to US leaders to reevaluate US policies and change them for the better.

To understand US Eritrea policy, it is important to look back at the history and the genesis of how the policies endured. It is also critical to understand, what the ramifications of US policies have meant to the people of Eritrea and the region since. These policies are regionally-attuned, with a broader US agenda in perspective. To understand the core of US Eritrea policies, it is always reveling to quote John Foster Dulles who served as U.S. Secretary of State under Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower:
From the point of view of justice, the opinion of the Eritrean people must receive consideration. Nevertheless, the strategic interests of the United States in the Red Sea Basin and world peace make it necessary that the country be linked with our ally Ethiopia.
The statement above, in effect, sealed the fate of the people of Eritrea immersing them to unending conflict with a neighboring country that the US linked by force, deliberately. Eritrea was dismantled as a nation systematically by destroying the civil society organizations and the parliamentary body, that existed then. The rights the people of Eritrea were negated to accommodate US interests through manipulations, extortion and sheer force.

Secretary Dulles outlined US interests as, A) World Peace and B) Red Sea Basin.

The US pursued Eritrea in pursuit of global geopolitical, economic and security interests. But the question is: what has changed since? Have the interests shifted, changed or stopped? How did the initial plan to subjugate Eritrea, to further US interests’ work out? What is US geopolitical status in the region, since? Has it helped or hurt, the people of the region? Did it secure or help secure, world peace? Furthermore, was world peace ever a genuine interest?

The simple answer is: nothing has changed. The US is still pursuing the Red Sea Basin but instead of World Peace, the theme has changed to Global War on Terror (GWOT), human rights and humanitarian agendas.

The GWOT gives US carte-blanche to infiltrate any territory that it can without having to justify or require permission as witnessed in Somalia under the pretext of fighting terrorism, because The War on Terrorism has essentially nullified the War Powers Act. The President can go to war with any nation claiming “Fighting Terror”, without having to go to congress for permission. Human rights are also used, to demonize nations and justify actions.

The stability and viability of the nations in the region has deteriorated drastically, since the end of the WWII. Despite claims of stability, Somalia remains unstable. Systemic continuous interventions by the West and Ethiopia have dissolved the public institutions that existed in Somalia, to the point that the children of Somalia have gone without education for a long time. This deprivation, will affect generations of Somalis. The spinoff-ramifications to the nation’s institutions and the people, will linger for decades. The collective loss of life combined with persistent deprivation, amounted to one of humanities greatest calamities.

The Horn of Africa (HoA) has seen a steady decline in terms of stability, due to outside interventions. Instabilities in Sudan, S Sudan and Somalia provide stark examples of what external interferences can do. While there is appearance of lull, the future of the region will be bleak if US policies continue on the same path particularly against Eritrea.

US- Eritrea policy, has always been to subjugate Eritrea and place it under the custodianship of Ethiopia. The question is how did that strategy pan out, the first time around? Eritrea was placed in a bad position and as a result forced to fight for over thirty years, to become independent. The amount of human and material loss for Eritrea and the region, was incalculable. It set-back developments by decades, turning Eritrea into a barren land. Eritrea was stripped bare, of her human and material wealth. And, no one is accountable.

Undeterred by the odds however, the people of Eritrea managed to eject Ethiopia out of Eritrea by force. Furthermore, Eritrea penetrated deep into Ethiopia, yanked the system out and ascertained independence. At that time, the farsighted leaders of Eritrea did the right thing by keeping Ethiopia intact since they believed that the interests of Eritrea, Ethiopia and the world is served well by a united and strong Ethiopia.

For a period of about seven years, peace reigned in the region. There existed a new era of cooperation among the nations and the people of the region, giving people hope that lasting peace could be achieved. That however, was short-lived. As soon as Eritrea asserted independence by releasing her currency, the race to undermine Eritrea’s independence started with full force.

Under the pretext of a border dispute, a full campaign was conducted to undermine Independence taking the lives of 20,000 Eritreans and over 100,000 Ethiopians; during the wars of 1998-2000. The war ended by cementing a final and binding Algiers Agreement, that allowed for the drawing of the borders. However, in breach of international laws, with full support of the US, the minority regime in Ethiopia flouted international agreement it signed and declared a new war it named- “No War- No Peace”- designed to methodically weaken Eritrea into submission.

Wikileaks made public, how US and Ethiopian authorities collaborated to undermine Eritrea at the UN, AU, EU, IGAD and all over in pursuit of the illegal sanctions. To suffocate Eritrea economically, politically, militarily and diplomatically no stone was left unturned. They targeted every aspect of Eritrean life; including the youth, social, ethnic and religious fabrics. They used every power at their disposal, to weaken and un-seat the government of Eritrea. They failed!

In the process, the US gave cart blanch to the minority regime of Meles Zenawi to impose its will on the people of Ethiopia. The only time the US came hard on the regime, was when Ethiopian forces used Humvees to attack civilians in 2005 protests creating a PR nightmare for the image of the vehicle and its association with US troops.

Unchecked military, financial, political and diplomatic support for the minority regime meant that it is free to do as it wishes. It gave the minority regime unchecked powers to create ethnic based system that it can manipulate using divide and rule system; financial prowess used to manipulate individuals and to buy influence using big name lobbyists; political cover in the hill that overlooked gross human rights violations including genocides in the Ogaden, Gambella and the Amhara regions of Ethiopia, as well are ethnic cleansing in an effort to clear communities to sell farm-lands to multinational organizations; immunity from war crimes for mutilating civilians in Somalia; cover from international laws for breach of Somalia arms embargo and for invading Somalia; cover to imprison individuals, quell decent and other-freedoms using the guise of terrorism; and cover to build Tigray the home-base of the regime by funneling funds from national coffers giving it disparate advantages over the rest of the nation…

The US accorded the minority regime, many advantages. The regime received access to the G8 and G-20 meetings; made the regime representative of African countries on important global matters and placed them on a position of international influence. Using the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa as advantage, the regime used the support of US diplomats to manipulate African leaders and used these advantages to pursue the regimes interests that serve its narrow agendas at the expense of regional and continental interests.

What that did is create a spoiled child concerned only about what the West have to say and not concerned about the constituencies it is supposed to serve, or the neighbors it supposed to work with. The wellbeing of the people of Ethiopia and the region, became inconsequential to the regime. As a result, the regime finds itself in isolation and under pressure from within and with its neighbors.

Furthermore, US hostilities against Eritrea and joint US/Ethiopia campaigns are ongoing unabated, to the detriment of the people of Ethiopia and the region. Ethiopia is a fractured-glass- bottle filled with toxic materials, ready to shatter from external and internal pressures. Many studies including; US National Intelligence Council Global Trends for 2010 have reported about Ethiopia’s fragility.

For decades, the US pinned Eritrea using Ethiopia. However, what the US is currently pursuing is a threat to the very existence of Eritrea. If the US wants stability of the region and give Ethiopia chance to remain intact, the demarcated borders must be respected. Ethiopia, a client state of the US must be made to respect the Algiers Agreement- a treaty it signed- complete the Hague decision and exit sovereign Eritrean territories. Ethiopia must realize it cannot negate a treaty it signed, because nothing can change that.

Eritrea won independence with blood, sweat, tears & prayers. Eritreans have paid dearly, in order to be where they are today. What the US need to understand is no matter what is done to undermine Eritrea’s independence at the UN and other avenues; the people of Eritrea, cognizant of the games at play and armed with decades of experience, have rebuffed the trickery outright.

The US has pushed Eritrea as far as it can and found walls it cannot penetrate, for decades. In the process, the situation in Ethiopia has deteriorated to the point that, if unchecked, it will be uncontrollable. The most important fact in this is that the US must be clear, that Ethiopia cannot survive at the expense of Eritrea.

The US must ease the tension and back off-to, allow Eritrea and Ethiopia to resume natural relations as sovereign nations. The leaders of Eritrea have ascertained, that they want a united and strong Ethiopia. To the contrary, the regime in Ethiopia have stoked fires everywhere in Ethiopia and the region, that it is now a liability to the US and thus easy for the US to place the neck of the criminal regime on the table to maintain US interests and to save Ethiopia and help bring stability in the region. It is high time for US to reevaluate its position and work with Eritrea, for the sake of all involved.

What's gotten into you today? You quoted a fake twitt earlier and now you are quoting a fake quotation?

The encyclopedic Eritrean writer Saleh Younis has been challenging people to bring the original quotation for a decade and nobody is able to prove the quote is real. The entire Eritrean intelligentsia have been putting the blame on Dr Bereket fiction writing abilities.

While we are on the subject of stuff people say without presenting source for it is the oft-repeated quote of John Foster Dulles who allegedly said, "From the standpoint of justice, the opinions of the Eritrean people must receive consideration. Nevertheless, the strategic interest of the United States in the Red Sea basin and considerations of security and world peace make it necessary that the country has to be linked with our ally, Ethiopia.” Entire research departments have been challenged to find the source of this most-probably-totally-manufactured quote and no one is able to find the original quote because Mr Dulles never said the words!

I extend the challenge it to you, Mr Zmeselo, and whoever has used it. Note: giving me a foot note, quoting another book, which quotes another book won't do: I want the actual quote as stated in the 1950s. Show me the ............ :)

I will happily shine your pair of shoes without having you pay a penny for it if you bring me a primary source for the quote. This is because I have read it on various occasions but I have to admit that questioning its credibility never occurred to me until I read sarcasm's comment today.

The action of the USA and the British against Eritrea doesn’t need any written quote admittance.
The annexation of Eritrea with their puppet regime Ethiopia against the wishes of the Eritreans and the subsequent over 70 years of hardship and miseries we the Eritreans went through is enough QUOTE or facts on the ground.
Dropping bombs like Somalia is a child game in comparison to what the USA and the British did to the Eritrean people.
They turned Eritrea to almost as backwards and as poor as Ethiopia and the rest of the baboon African nations, when Eritrea bad as it was had a jump start from the brutal Italian colonization.
Again had we were handed our independence in silver plate like all you baboon nations and left alone to charter our destiny just like we are doing now, yes we would have been the African Singapore by now.
So stop your bull crap to ask quote of this and that and admit that there is no country in the world which was done wrong and still being dared by your masters as Eritrea.
We wouldn’t have known who the hell sellassie, Mengistu, woyane or even Abiy were or are just like we don’t know or care who are the leaders of any nation. That is beside talking to funfunat agames like you here and other social medias.
Those are facts you idiot.

The West has paid attention to Eritrea only three times to date:

First time: When the despicable Meles Zenawi (may he rot in hell) parroted to the US that Eritrea had been aiding Al-shabab. Americans knew perfectly well that Zenawi was lying to them, playing his own game for his own gain, but at the end this was supporting their misleading money-making business called "War on terror."

Second time: When an army of skinny jeans wearing young Eritreans started to flock into Europe and appeared roaming across the continent in groups of three or four in every corner and the West began to wonder whether there was anyone left in Eritrea, calling Eritrea "the country that's emptying of its people", or "the world's fastest emptying nation".

Third time: When Eritrean troops were confirmed to be fighting inside Ethiopia against Tigrayan ragtag army.

Otherwise, whether we like it or not, Eritrea has never been in the sights of the West or within the scope of the ambitions and expectations of the West.

The truth is still the truth, even if no one agrees with it.

You filthy Somali jacket wearing funfun, filthy, Wedi qosal mitra agame, all the things you mentioned wouldn’t have occurred had the USA and the evil British handed Eritrea to Ethiopia in a silver platter for the service your midget, cobwebbed, dead, ugly sellassie was ordered to do for their interests.
If you were honest person you should ask your self, why did all the baboon African nation handed their independence in a silver plate and not Eritrea.
I mean even the other two Italian colonies (Somalia and Libya) got their independence when all the colonizers left Africa.
Why l, why not Eritrea?
And you bringing all the craps which could have never happened if we were also treated like all the baboons? Are you mother fu’cker an idiot?
Godemet be truthful for a change.
There is no country in the freaking world which was done harm more than Eritrea since 1953 uptodate.
The Libyan, Syrian, Afghanistan, Iraqis and the Ukrainians short pains are child’s play than the pains of us the Eritreans since 1953 with the Palestinians coming second.

You're stuck in the past, yet you know nothing about the past and all you know is blaming the past for everything, including your low IQ and poor education!

FYI, Eritrea was already annexed to Ethiopia when African countries were gaining independence from the white colonial powers, therefore, the latter did not have any independence to hand you whether on a silver platter or on their dicks. You had to get it from Ethiopia, unless you want to say that it was the white colonial powers that handed Eritrea to Ethiopia in the first place and thus they had to get your independence from Ethiopia for you in which case is totally wrong, because no one gave Eritrea to Ethiopia but the mechanism of the World War II.

No Somaliman what he is saying is that Eritrea should have been given indepedence in 1950. And it should have never been federated with Ethiopia which is a good argument why was Eritrea federated with Ethiopia. Cigar is not telling the whole truth his kebessa people supported the union and were great supporters of Haile sellasie the unionist party It was the low land Eritreans who wanted total independence the British who were handling the mandate said all let them split Eritrea the lowland to join Sudan and highland join Ethiopia. This again was rejected to find a middle ground. It was to be federated with Ethiopia in order to find middle ground this is the story really. Only when sellasie abolished the federation agreement and the Asmara parliament was closed the Eritreans particularly from the lowland started fighting an armed rebellion. This is the history the beginning of jebha elf Though I agree with some sentiments. Of what cigar is saying Eritrea should have been independent whe Italy left or after the British mandate ended but it didn’t happend due to allot of factors Ethiopia the interest of region the westerbpowers and to find middle ground between total secession and autonomy that is indeed the story.

Do you know that the UN, before the Federation, had taken a census on what the Eritrean people wanted?

75% said, Independence.

On the other hand, the British & the HS regime bought up people & made them start a party called: the Unionist Party.

You're going by the few loud ones (sponsored from outside), but that doesn't reflect what the majority ( kebessa & metaht) wanted.
