  1. ell, Western state heads are rather pleased with woyane’s lethal declarations against Ethiopians though we hear here and there some solemn like oratories.
    The German chancellor very visit to the TPLF government at time of Ethiopians in diplomatic communication a gesture of support to the lethal declaration of TPLF.
    Ethiopians should not be deceived with what she talked but with what she did: she visited TPLF while it is killing the innocents.
    Ethiopians need to take immediate action. We need to kill any German in Ethiopia. At the same time, Ethiopians need to demolish any business owned by German so called investors. No, they are invaders. We need to wipe out any Western business from our country. They are friends of TPLF, hence enemies of Ethiopians.
    Look at again this man from USA. His visit is a gesture of support or he has come to advice TPLF how it can contain the Ethiopian people.

    State heads of USA are also our core rather no. 1 enemies.
    Ethiopians, take immediate action against German investors, German companies and those of USA in Ethiopia.

  3. I always believe promise is like a debt, it has to be honored and delivered. From time to time we often hear such promises with no positive responses. We already are accustomed to not believing the government because we haven’t seen any promise being fulfilled. If it is the usual manipulations, deception and appeasement, I wish the PM had said nothing.
    We are in great problems. Individuals, families, communities, and the society at large is in great danger. No one is free and immune from the current danger. In this kind of circumstances, unresponsiveness to the wellbeing of society, the usual manipulation, deception, lying and appeasement of donor countries at the expense of dying people is not the nature of any sensible human being.
    I have lost all hopes. This time let me hope against hope and believe that the visit could have a positive impact to all of us common desire to peaceful resolutions and constructive transition.

  5. [Zehabesha, why do you delete my openion? It doesn’t reflect your view. It is my fact. To me, TPLF would not come to power, had not had brought so much outrage and crises to Ethiopia and Ethiopians if it were not fully supported by USA/UK/EU. I think we have to join the Islamic fights if they continue with their evil agendas. Thus, don’t through away my view point. ]

    America should stop with its cosmotics. It is trying to help TPLF hold on power.

    We don’t need you America. You are disguised enemy! Go away?????????????/

    Ethiopians should target American diplomats in the nation because they are the principal supporters of TPLF along with UK state heads.

    In nutshel, Western state heads (not Western people) are Enemies of Ethiopia and Ethiopians at least since 26 years back.

    No, we don’t need Western intervension or cosmotic!

    Leave Ethiopia the sooner the better!
