  1. The very beginning of our downfall:
    “ኢትዮጵያ የብሔሮች እስር ቤት ናት” [indoctrinated የዋለልኝ መኮንን]

    On the genesis of dismantling Ethiopia project:

    Inception and enactment of the masked creed to dismantle Ethiopia
    In 1935, a Western diplomat with the name Roman Prochazka had boldly described Ethiopia as enemy of the white supremacy and their then legacies. Prochazka further thought how these sovereign nation could be broken up. He was the one who discovered the notion of nations/nationalities and instigated it in the Ethiopian minds such as Walelegn Mekonnen.

    The breaking Ethiopia up road map of Prochazka was sketched before the Fascist’s reinvasion of Ethiopia in 1936. His road map was also effectively used by those Italian mercenaries against Ethiopia. Prochaska had said these ‘numerous peoples and tribes who inhabit the territory of the Ethiopian State and which differ in race, language , culture and religion from the ruling minority of Abyssinia proper, would long ago have thrown off the Abyssinian yoke if they had been given the right of self determination.’ He further proclaimed that these distinctly different numerous nationalities are instead forcibly kept away from European influences and from the advantages that progressive colonization could confer upon the country. According to Prochazka, Ethiopia operated against white race. The final aim of (Abyssinian) policy of antagonism to the white race in cooperation with Japan , is nothing less than to act as the champions of all colored peoples of Africa, narrated Prochazka. Then he advised the then Western politicians by saying ‘it is incumbent on the legations of the civilized nations in Abyssinia to warn their governments to take a definite stand before the Abyssinians attack and destroy Western culture and civilization in its entirety.’ This hate mongering destruction agent had also indicated the crucially of targeting the Amhara to break up Ethiopia. ‘There is no such thing as a united Abyssinian people, he said. The greater part of the non-Christian tribes in Abyssinia has no more burning desire than to be freed from the tyranny of the Amhara, scammed Prochazka.’

    Walelegn Mekonnen and others had innocently believed the ‘ill-willed’ diagnoses of Ethiopia by Prochazka, namely the notion of nationalities, and the need for the right for self determination up to secession, in 1969. Walelign’s outlooks and proclamations further inspired and overwhelmed the younger Ethiopians including within the monarchy. That was rather disguised deception of the innocent Ethiopians. For more on Walelign’s views https://www.marxists.org/history/erol/ethiopia/nationalities.pdf

    In 1969, CIA invigorated the verves of Prochazka against Ethiopia: the right of self determination of nations and nationalities up to secession for the break up and dismemberment of Ethiopia. By the way, CIA’s policy against Ethiopia since the 1960’s has been copied word for word from the Nazi Baron Roman Prochazka. Note that 1969 was the highest point of CIA’s involvement in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa. It was operated by Miles Copeland and others of CIA. They did these by masquerading as followers of a Socialist movement and by manipulating Nasser of Egypt. Miles Copeland was a political consultant on the Middle East, writer and a notorious CIA spy. In that same year, they recruited Issayas Afework as a CIA agent to wage a guerrilla war for breaking out of Ethiopia with all its Red Sea coast. In 1969, Nimeiry in the Sudan and Siad Barrre in Somalia were also recruited.

    The other veteran CIA agent Paul Henze was also the principal promoter of self determination and the break up of Ethiopia. He was assigned to Addis Ababa in 1969. It will not be absurd to think that Walelegn’s article was the h the
    work of foreign agents . The article was rather the hot bed of anti-Ethiopians, the self-determination scheme for the break up of Ethiopia

    Eventually, the breaking Ethiopia up aliens’ enthusiasm was effected using the well molded traitor gangs: TPLF and ELF (shabia).

  2. Great job the heroic Amhara and Oromo people. First round you put the tyrannical TPLF/EPRDF in the emergency room. Now that one of the most oppressive and criminal government in the world has lifted its state of emergency, it is officially round two. It is high time to put TPLF government in INTENSIVE CARE UNIT. In TPLF Ethiopia where quality of education is in the dumps and where an illiterate punk can be a physician, entering and INTENSIVE CARE UNIT is DEATH SENTENCE. So, in round 2 TPLF gov will be totally and completely destroyed and a free and democratic government will replace them. In order to expedite TPLF’s demise we need to hit them where it hurts the most, POCKET BOOK AKA MONEY. AFTER ALL TPLF MEMBERS VALUE MONEY A LOT MORE THAN HUMAN LIFE. In TPLF world, $100 is worth more than one Ethiopian. We need to drain their wealth by completely destroying all tyrannical TPLF/EPRDF owned properties and businesses, not patronizing their or their allies businesses and supporting their competitors. At the end of the day IT IS THE ECONOMY STUPID. 95% of wars are won ECONOMICALLY. So, destroying Ethiopian economy AKA tyrannical TPLF/EPRDF economy will get us 95% closer to victory w/o a single life lost. Let us do it brave and patriotic brothers and sisters.
