Tigrai people's liberation front gave PM Abiy 100% support

Post by justo » 13 Oct 2018, 11:38

Tigrai people's liberation front was the first to nominally recognise Eritrea's independence, and now it has given PM Abiy 100% support. The question is if anybody finds any of these two things credible?

By giving PM Abiy 100% support while doing everything in its power to undermine him, the Tigrai people's liberation front has exposed that its nominal support for Eritrean independence is just as empty as its 100% support of PM Abiy.

Had the TPLF been smart enough, it would have given Abiy 57% support just to appear to be credible. If you're not credible, nothing you say matters. If you're not credible, everything you say is a monologue, you can never enter into a dialogue with others. Can Tigrai ever be able to regain its credibility?

Had Tigray given open support to PM Abiy...you can bet your last penny the "Amhara" would have been against him.

Now that Tigray appears against him, all those that consider Tigray as enemy are singing for him. Its that simple.

Since these grups assume Tigray is against the peace with Isayas...they are also singing for Isayas.

Very easy to drive someone whose only reason is hate in any direction by information or misinformation. They cannot see the difference.

When are you going to learn, this is the kind of behaviour that got Tigrai into trouble in the first place. You should learn to behave in such a way that people can take you at face value. This kind of machinations are what got you into trouble to begin with.

The Eritrean people are beginning to ask, why is Tigrai not able to trade with its Amara neighbours, which is by far a larger market than the Eritrean market. They are asking what has Tigrai done in the Amara region to disqualify itself from the Amara market? Do you have an answer for them, don't lie now.

Tigrai trying to share the money it stole from Ethiopia with Eritrea should be a no no for every Eritrean. If Tigra has anything to sell, it should first try to sell it in the Amara or Ethiopian market. If is has any surplus after that, it can try to sell it in Eritrea if it can find any buyer at all.

I believe TPLF does support Abiy to a degree because Oromo is not as much of a threat to Tigray as Amhara. Like Somalis, the main concern for Tigrais is probably if the half-clever Amhara outwitted the unsuspecting Oromo and silently got Abiy to hand over the power after all they sit second (Demeke) in power behind himself.

How will the half-clever Amhara charm Abiy so Demeke can storm Menelik Palace?

Still Amhara need credible allies and Somalis like Tigrais have made their positions clear; No Neftegna. We rather go to war. None of that G7 have even tried entertaining us. They know where we stand and we don't pretend.

If they do the Oromo wrong, Oromo is not happy, if they come to power Tigray is in red alert, Somalis are too. So how do they plan to over come these challenges?

Their only option is charming Oromo and sending the Abyssinian Oromos to serve their interests. Abiy is somewhat an Abyssinian Oromo but his true colours haven't yet surfaced. He is still playing the Oromo card. Neither Somalis nor Tigrais fully trust him.

Never give 100% of you to someone other than God, your parents, siblings. TPLF is smart not to give 100% to their former employee.

Hawdian, the Amhara are weak only as a pan-Ethiopian unifying force. As an ethnic group, as Amharas proper, they are a formidable force for both friend and foe. Only a fool would underestimate them. Tigrai on the other hand is wildly overrated, and will soon learn it act its size.
