The EU’s Horn Of Africa Envoy Reportedly Admitted That Sudan Helps Arm The TPLF
It’s no longer just logic and reports from Ethiopian sources that are relied on to reach the conclusion that Sudan helps arm the TPLF, but allegedly an admission from none other than one of the TPLF’s most infamous supporters, the EU’s own Horn of Africa envoy, according to the New York Times.
The US-led West’s Golden Billion is waging a Hybrid War of Terror on Ethiopia as punishment for Prime Minister Abiy’s principled neutrality in the New Cold War, to which end they’re employing Sudan as one of their top proxies. Up until this point, those who accused that neighboring country of complicity in this conflict were relying on a combination of logic and reports from Ethiopian sources, the latter of which are a party to the hostilities (albeit as the victimized side that’s protecting itself in self-defense) and thus regarded by skeptics as “agenda-driven” and therefore supposedly “can’t be trusted”.
Now, however, there’s no reason for anyone to doubt this dynamic after it was reportedly admitted by the EU’s Horn of Africa envoy Annette Weber. Observers might recognize her as the woman who accompanied her American counterpart Mike Hammer to Mekelle in early August, during which time those two Westerners infamously took selfies with the TPLF’s leader and thus proved their partisan bias in support of his terrorist group. That’s a crucial point to remember in this context because it confirms that she wouldn’t purposely discredit her side’s proxies nor their Sudanese allies.
It’s with this in mind that the New York Times’ (NYT) article about the confidential briefing that Weber allegedly wrote to EU member states last month becomes so damning. This newspaper of record claims to have obtained that selfsame report, the contents of which they included in their piece titled “After Secret U.S. Talks Fail, a Hidden War in Africa Rapidly Escalates”. In it, they informed their audience that Weber wrote about how “Sudan has become a ‘conduit’ for flights carrying arms to Tigray.” It’s only a single sentence but it’s nevertheless a bombshell that most readers probably missed.
The importance of this revelation is that it ads credence to prior concerns about Sudan’s role in the Golden Billion’s Hybrid War of Terror on Ethiopia. It’s no longer just logic and reports from Ethiopian sources that are relied on to reach that conclusion, but allegedly an admission from none other than one of the TPLF’s most infamous supporters, the EU’s own Horn of Africa envoy. Nobody could accuse her of having an agenda aimed at discrediting her side’s proxies in this conflict or their Sudanese allies after she proudly visited the terrorists’ leader in Mekelle to publicly show her support for his separatist cause.
The NYT was obviously never supposed to have obtained that confidential briefing, nor was any other newspaper of record for that matter. Weber was uncharacteristically candid in what she reportedly told EU member states, hence why she didn’t sugarcoat Sudan’s role as “a ‘conduit’ for flights carrying arms to Tigray” like that outlet reported. She clearly wanted them to understand the importance of Sudan in this conflict as one of the main means through which their side continues arming their proxies in their Hybrid War of Terror on Ethiopia.
This revelation naturally leads to several conclusions. First, the EU is aware of Sudan’s role as an indirect party to hostilities. Second, it doesn’t feel comfortable publicly disclosing this fact. Third, that’s because the West benefits from Sudan’s proxy role in the conflict. Fourth, that country clearly isn’t neutral in their Hybrid War of Terror on Ethiopia. And fifth, Sudan should in principle be redesignated as a state sponsor of terrorism by the US after its recent removal if the latter had any integrity, but this obviously won’t happen since America’s strategic aims are advanced by Sudan’s support of TPLF terrorists.
