Ethiopia on the brink. Everyone has failed Somalia— its politicos, Horn nations, AU, UN, the West bear huge responsibilities, TPLF most of all! PART I (1)

    The following introductory paragraphs are intended to serve as a curtain raiser for the articles that would follow it in the weeks to come.

    The main conclusion is its open and honest claim that Somalia could have been up and running long ago, if the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the forces it commands within Somalia — including all sorts of shady Somalia militias — have not been allowed to become authors and contributors of Somalia’s continuing tragedy.

    In that, the individual articles provide tissues forming the conclusion’s muscle.

    While engaging Al-Shabaab as everyone’s enemy, probably as a convenient cover for the top military leadership’s goal(s), these bad apples within the TPLF and their allies’ preoccupation has been their own superior position inside Somalia and Ethiopia. This perception assumes TPLF’s continuity in power in Ethiopia, which takes among others pacifying Somalia and keeping it weaker.

ZANU-PF had given the 93-year-old less than 24 hours to quit as head of state or face impeachment, an attempt to secure a peaceful end to his tenure after a de facto coup.

The thesis of David Daniels’s recent Sightings column, “Martin Luther and Ethiopian Christianity: Historical Traces,” is exciting and important amidst the recent celebrations of Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses. In short, the Reformation was not “a solely European event” but was marked by “global exchanges” traceable to Ethiopia. Thus, “the standard narrative of the Reformation will need to be revised.”

The number of U.S. military forces in Somalia has more than doubled this year to over 500 people as the Pentagon has quietly posted hundreds of additional special operations personnel to advise local forces in pockets of Islamic militants around the country, according to current and former senior military officials.

It is the largest American military contingent in the war-torn nation since the the infamous 1993 “Black Hawk Down” battle when 18 U.S. soldiers died. It is also the latest example of how the Pentagon’s operations in Africa have expanded with greater authority provided to field commanders.

Delayed parliamentary committee report establishes TPLF forcibly-legitimised extradition by Somalia of Qalbi-Dhagah to Ethiopia illegal! TPLF succeeds brewing trouble to 10-month old Somalia gov’t

Hiiran Online picture of Abdulkerim Sheik Musa, known in Somalia as Qalbi Dhagax, TPLF describes as ONLF commander, while a victim of TPLF kidnapping last August, assuming he is Ethiopian. He is claimed to be a citizen of Somalia, a Col in Siad Barre army and veteran of the 1977 Ogaden war Somalia opened against Ethiopia. TPLF put the back of the newly-elected Somalia government against the wall to force a post facto pronouncement to describe kidnapping as extradition of a terrorist, exactly 20 days after his kidnapping by Gen. Gabre, a man shamefully with so many duplicitous titles, some of which include Ethiopian diplomat, Supreme Ethiopian Force Commander in Somalia and Political Advisor at IGAD
