U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia by Tedla Asfaw

April 12th, 2011 Print Print Email Email

I read a comment on USA Ambassador to Ethiopia, Donald E. Booth, interview by Ethiopian Journalist, Eskinder Nega, in Amharic, posted on websites. Ambassador Booth said that the 2010 so called election is accepted by the people of Ethiopia, the 99.6 percent win maybe the highest recorded in Africa. Can we call it “Election Development”, “Ye Limate Mircha ” ? Is the Ambassador suggesting that ” popular ” endorsement of the election by the rally Meles Zenawi organized in Addis Ababa following the fake election to condemn Human Right Watch report ? I hope not.

USA policy makers followed similar election endorsement after Mubarak’s 80 percent win of the recent fake election. I do not want to waste the Ambassador’s time on what happened in 2011 in Egypt. If he is trying to be a spokesman for Meles Zenawi he will be proven wrong soon. Ethiopians rejected Meles’ regime in 2005 and no miracle is performed in the last five years for Meles and his mafia party to win the hearts and minds of Ethiopians by 99.6 percent like the Ambassador alleged on his interview.

USA Ambassadors in Ethiopia, some of them, are known for telling the truth when they retire from that position. I questioned former U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia, Donald Yamamoto on Straight Talk Africa during the Tunisian uprising and told him how he sabotaged the Ethiopian popular uprising in 2005 following the stolen election. He told us that he was working very hard for opposition leaders to be released behind the scene. USA Ambassadors in Ethiopia are representing their country interest not the interest of Ethiopians. Their interest is to keep their puppets as long as it takes.

Ambassador Booth can only stay in Addis Ababa if he is acting like TPLF spokesman in public and behind the scene begging Meles Zenawi to take it easy not to embarrass USA. Obama is indeed not different from Bush when it comes to Ethiopia and so did their Ambassadors. For USA, Mubarak was an ally so did Saleh of Yemen and Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia.

Meles Zenawi and Saleh of Yemen are treated as poor allies while Saudi is American rich ally that can pay the masses to shut their mouth. America is not demanding freedom in Saudi for not upsetting the Wahhabi rulers who are exporting many of their people to fight around the Muslim world ” American injustice” and their corrupt rule. Saleh of Yemen is killing American enemies so why should America care if he gunned down Yemenis demanding freedom like Tunisians and Egyptians..

Mr. Ambassador, Meles Zenawi two decades rule has never been by popular mandate but by brute force until we Ethiopians rise up and overthrow him like Egyptians and Tunisians did, he will remain in power. I hope you witnessed the glimpse of what to come in Ethiopia on weekend. Thousands of Ethiopians this past weekend in D.C. and major cities in USA and Canada started popular Tsunami. The Tsunami that started in North America will vibrate across Atlantic and energize Ethiopians to start their overdue Revolution to sweep Meles and his mafia gangs from power.

Mr. Ambassador, by the way Do you know that VOA is jammed in Ethiopia ? Why is tax payers money is wasted on the program that is jammed at this time of budget austerity in USA ? Please do not waste tax payer money.If you have courage follow the German government example and demand answer publicly.

As I told Ambassador Yamamoto, Ethiopians will not be part of any fake elections sponsored by America no more. Freedom in Ethiopia comes only by popular uprising. Are you going to be with the people or Meles’ security ? Please do not arm and finance our killers.

    Well, As you find honey inside lion, we find good things what we call bad.
    I just want to tell for all Ethiopians that tribalism is not important in our country if we need unity. Unity comes always when we eliminate tribalism. Let’s have mind of educated people, not about Amhara, oromia, Tigrai, Wolaitta, but let’s be one in order to bring democracy in our country. We are in 21st century where people don’t talk about their tribes and where there are educated people, you can’t find such narrow mindedness. So, let’s remain one and bring the right democracy and overthrow those who are on powers…

    We wore in Koria fighting a long with Americans while America wasn’t helping Ethiopia from the guns of Rashia and Somalia. We all have our interestes and priorities. And some time we share the agendas. But how ever no one or no nation should put the other country and people in jeopardy for there interest.

    The real inconvenient truth about it is, they even send the native Americans to Koria to fight. Not that no body’s value
    Or freedom comes from seating around and be a baby of some unknown parents or getting treated us a dole or some thing. But if we want the world to be write it starts from every individual to do wright, at least what is wright in there judgment. And there is also the judgment and the interest of the mass and society. All and all let’s be good to each
    Other as we know it the enemy is at the gate.

    I am sure; soon the Ambassador will be called names like, “Banda, Leba and Woyane”. No one is immune from this as long as he/she has different opinion to the vocal Diaspora opposition regarding Ethiopia. Basically it is “My way or no way” approach. One thing I am happy about is that, those people are neither in Ethiopian nor have the power to rule Ethiopia; otherwise we would have been killed along time ago. Dear God, thanks for protecting Ethiopia from those butchers.

    U.S. Troubled By Reports from Ethiopian Election Observers

    Ethiopian voters wait in line outside a polling station in Dukem on May 23.

    Staff Writer

    Washington — The Obama administration praised the people of Ethiopia for participating in a peaceful May 23 parliamentary vote, but expressed concern over reports by international observers that the elections “fell short of international commitments.” It urged Ethiopian authorities to address concerns over the vote with “good faith and impartiality.”

    In a May 25 statement, National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer described limitations placed on independent observers, such as preventing U.S. Embassy officials from leaving the capital to observe the vote and harassing independent media representatives. He called such actions “deeply troubling.”

    “An environment conducive to free and fair elections was not in place even before election day,” Hammer said.

    According to preliminary results, incumbent Prime Minister Meles Zenawi’s ruling party is believed to have won a landslide victory. Ethiopian opposition leaders reportedly have said they will not accept the results and have called for a new vote.

    Hammer urged all parties to reject violence as the electoral process concludes and said the United States is waiting to hear the final assessments of the current vote by independent observers.

    He said that in recent years the Ethiopian government “has taken steps to restrict political space for the opposition through intimidation and harassment,” as well as by tightening its control over civil society and curtailing the activities of independent media in the country.

    “We are concerned that these actions have restricted freedom of expression and association and are inconsistent with the Ethiopian government’s human rights obligations,” Hammer said.

    “We urge the Ethiopian government to ensure that its citizens are able to enjoy their fundamental rights. We will work diligently with Ethiopia to ensure that strengthened democratic institutions and open political dialogue become a reality for the Ethiopian people,” he said.

    The European Union’s Observation Mission (EU EOM) in Ethiopia released a preliminary statement May 26 that cites “several positive improvements” over previous elections, but concludes that the electoral process “fell short of certain international commitments, notably regarding the transparency of the process and the lack of a level playing field for all contesting parties.”

    The election observers said the political arena leaned in favor of the ruling party “in many areas,” noting that the main opposition had been fragmented after the 2005 elections and that important opposition figures had left the political scene. In addition, “changes to the legal framework have resulted in a cumulative narrowing of the political space within the country,” the preliminary report says.

    The report says that although Ethiopian media coverage of campaign events generally was neutral and proportional, the Voice of America’s Amharic Service had been jammed during the last two weeks of the campaign, which “contributed to reduce the possibility for voters to receive information from a wider range of sources.”

    The EU EOM statement says the mission plans to publish its final report approximately two months after the electoral process in Ethiopia has ended.

    Tedla, You are right. The United States only works for its national interest. At this point and time their interest in the horn of Africa is stability and anti-terrorism. So as long as the EPRDF government can keep Ethiopia under control they can care less about human rights and democracy or development. The sooner the Ethiopian community comes to terms with this reality the better our struggle for democracy will be. I personally don’t expect much from U.S policy maker anymore. We should just worry about what we can do for our struggle. If we manage to stay together and fight in unison then the western powers will be left with no other option but to pay attention so us and take us seriously. This is what happen in Egypt, in Tunisia, and Libya……..We make our reality. Let’s leave them no other option. The way we do this is to fight harder and stronger than ever before.

    There are more reports that the US chided Meles Zenawi about the 2010 election.

    We demand Ambassador Booth to come clean in the face of his own contradictory assessments.

    —————————————
    WASHINGTON | Tue May 25, 2010 1:17pm EDT

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States said on Tuesday Ethiopia’s election failed to meet international standards and called for stronger democratic institutions in the country, a key U.S. ally in Africa.

    “While the elections were calm and peaceful and largely without any kind of violence, we note with some degree of remorse that the elections there were not up to international standards,” Assistant Secretary of State Johnnie Carson told a House of Representatives panel.

    Carson, the Obama administration’s top diplomat for Africa, said Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi’s government had taken “clear and decisive” steps to ensure it won a landslide victory in Sunday’s vote. The ruling Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front and allied parties won nearly every seat in the country’s 547-member parliament.

    A European Union observer mission said on Tuesday the polls had been marred by reports of violence and intimidation, as well as the ruling party’s use of state resources for campaigning, but that this did not invalidate the results.

    “It is important that Ethiopia move forward in strengthening its democratic institutions and when elections are held that it level the playing field to give everyone a free opportunity to participate without fear or favor,” Carson said.

    The United States regards Ethiopia as a crucial ally in the fight against hardline Islamism in the Horn of Africa, and has provided some $4.7 billion in aid to the country between 1999-2009, including $862 million in 2009, according to State Department figures.

    But Washington has also noted opposition accusations of repression by Meles, who has been in power since 1991.

    The two countries traded sharp words in March after Meles accused the U.S.-funded Voice of America broadcaster of spreading “destabilizing propaganda” and said it would explore jamming the broadcaster’s Amharic language service.

    Carson indicated that the United States would continue to press Meles to make democratic changes, but not at the price of endangering the alliance.

    “We appreciate the level of collaboration that we receive from Ethiopia in a number of areas, but we also believe that Ethiopia must do better in strengthening its democratic institutions,” he said

    Some of us may not know that but Libya had the highest Human Development Index of any country on the continent of Africa.

    Did you know that fewer percentage people lived below poverty line than the Netherlands? Purchasing power of Libyans is $15,000.00; S Africa’s is $5000.00 less than that.

    Having said that IMO, as Eskinder quoted, USA Ambassador to Ethiopia, Donald E. Booth saying Ethiopia becoming another middle income country is a guarantee path towards, real democracy and multi party system has some merit. At least we can be sure of an uprising succeeding.

    As Tedla realized it, if we want freedom, we need to earn it. Let us not rely on others to give it to us.

    I think the Amabassador was suggesting that Ethiopians would have revolted had they not accepted the election. He need to know that “silence” or “no revolt” does not mean “acceptance or affirmation.” Otherwise, they already reported last year that the election was not free and fair.

    Folks, do you see the value of crying…? Ethiopians are griped by fear and disillusion. We need some visionary and courageous folks like Eskinder Nega to inspire and energize the people to rise up for their rights and dignity.

    The United States has this long history of protecting its puppets and this is what the US ambassador is doing in Ethiopia. The fascist and racist Meles Zenawi is the most loyal servant the US can have in Africa.
    The Obama administration has chosen to embrace the fascist and continue with the policy of alienating Ethiopians. It is the duty and responsibility of Ethiopians to remove the Tigrayan fascists from power and free the country.

    Hunde, Solomon Tekalejine and the likes,
    You people can’t help it not to think what your delusional minds tell you to be fair. But, I’ve to say that you’re hypocrites for telling other Ethiopians that they don’t have the moral and they are narrow minded for questioning the TPLF government that have been accused of human rights violations and genocide by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International. Obviously, you and the well educated and accomplished Ethiopians see things in a totally different lens. Here are the few things among many you people are so proud of the job Meles and his TPLF puppets have been doing for the last 20 years:

    Refused to step down after 20 years of dictatorship.
    Stealing the elections twice and claiming victory by almost 100%.
    Controlling the multi ethnic country of 80 million Ethiopians with one ethnic political party, the entire Ethiopian government, all the major Ethiopian businesses and Banks owned and run by TPLF.
    Divided Ethiopians by ethnic groups and muzzled them.
    Torturing and Murdering innocent Ethiopians.
    Built International Air Port, the best Hospitals, Clinics, Colleges, Modern College Dormitories, Roads etc. in Tigrea province and the rest of Ethiopians treated like second class citizens in every aspects of their lives.
    Meles, Azeb and the members of TPLF literally robbed the country and have become multimillionaires in just a few years after they had taken power ruling the poorest country in the world where 10 to 15 million Ethiopians expected to die of starvation.
    Taken Ethiopians freedom of speech and press and the freedom to gather peacefully in their own country.
    Incarcerating opposition leaders and sentenced them to life and deaths.
    Throwing tens of thousands innocent Ethiopians in prison without a charge and some of them to be tortured and killed for no apparent reason.
    Gunned down hundreds of innocent Ethiopians on the streets for exercising their God given rights, among the dead who would forget that 14 year old girl who died in the hospital bullet logged in her kidney for days, the mother who lost her two sons the same day, another family who lost their father, mother and a wounded brother in the same day.
    Chased away and killed Ethiopians from everything they knew and loved and given their land to foreigners…etc. The TPLF crimes continues in Ethiopian and abroad as we speak.

    No i disagree. Please do not call Melese fascist and racist. He is a visionary and doing his best to bring Ethiopia First. Lets support him in the construction of the Dam. No government in the world is perfect even in the West. Ethiopia is not Egypt or Tunisia. Election took place in Ethiopia. So as Melese said Ethiopians will bring him to power with their vote or reject him with their vote. Until then lets agree to disagree and support the transformation at hand.

It is impossible to list all the crimes that has been committed by Meles.

    Comment #20 should be the dogma from now own when those pro Weyanes come out in defense of their leader Meles. There is no need to explain except release the crime dossier of Meles and TPLF.

    Of course the U.S will always flip flap and should not be taken seriously. It is up to us to do something about it both inside and outside of Ethiopia. It is Ethiopians in the West who are working hard and paying taxes like any fellow Westerners, so we do have power in the West as well and continue to do something about it such as be active by asking our congress, and senate representative to prevent such crime against Ethiopians that is taking place in Ethiopia. It is up to us to convince the West as Meles and TPLF is feeding them a like about Ethiopia. We need to be clear in explaining what we stand for and what we believe in as we have always been Western allies, whether Meles and TPLF come or go, Ethiopian and Western relationshhip should not change that is how we have to convince them on, instead we scratch where it doesn’t itch us, talking about supporting other countries, or people when we should be focusing within Ethiopia first. We are making oursleves complicated and entangled by speaking for others when we should free ourselves first.

    AMBASADOR BOOTH MY FOOT.
    PEOPLE. MR. BOOTH KNOWS EVERYTHING. CIA KNOWS EVERYTHING IN OUR COUNTRY. THEY EVEN HAVE AN ARMY THAT CAN GO TO WAR FOR THEM. HE IS JUST ACTING LIKE HE DOESN’T KNOW THE ELECTION RIGGING. OBAMA ALSO KNOWS THE ELECTION IS FARCE. THE REASON THE CARTER ELECTION MONITORING LIERS DID NOT GO TO THE 2010 ELECTION IS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT TO LIE FOR THE SECOND TIME AND HAVE THE PEOPLE OF ETHIOPIA LOSE HOPE OR FAITH ON THE UNITED STATES. THEY KNEW WHAT COULD HAPPEN IN 2010. SO PEOPLE DO NOT GET INTO THE POLITICS OF ESKINDER NEGA TRYING TO WAIST OUR TIME TALKING TO AMBASODOR BOOTH. THE US IS ONLY INTERESTED IN PUTTING THEIR PUPPET ON POWER SO THEY CAN MANIPULATE AND BUY OUT OUR NATIONAL WEALTH. ALL THESE WESTERNERS ARE A BUNCH OF IMPERIALIST THAT DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT US. THEY CARE ONLY ABOUT THEIR MONEY. LOOK AT EGYPT FOR INSTANCE. THEIR PUPPET MUBAREK HAS ALREADY SOLD THEM OUT MAJOR ENTERPRISES AND THEY HAVE BEEN ACCUMLATING WEALTH IN A COUNTRY OF 80 MILLION PEOPLE, HUGE POPULATION. WHEN THE PEOPLE APRISED, THEY CONSULTED MUBAREK TO LEAVE. WHY? BECAUSE THEY HAVE A LOT OF MONEY AT STEAK. A LOT OF THEIR PROPERTIES, BANKS AND COMPANIES COULD HAVE BEEN LOOTED. SAME IN TUNISIA. DO THE IMPRIALSTS HAVE ANY INVESTMENT IN ETHIOPIA? NO. SO THEY WILL NOT GIVE A DAMN UNTIL MELES BRINGS THEM IN AND GIVE THEM LUCRATIVE DEALS AS HE SOLD OUT ETHIOPIA TO THE ARABS AND INDIANS. THAT IS WHY THEY NEED MELES IN POWER, ONLY UNTIL HE SELL OUT COMPANYS AND OUR LAND. AFTER THAT MELES WILL BE MUBAREK. IN OTHER WORDS, HE IS DIGGING HIS OWN GRAVE.. SO IN SHORT, ALL THESE IMPERIALISTS HAVE NO USE FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF ETHIOPIANS. SAVE YOUR TIME AND TALK ABOUT OTHER SOLUTIONS TO BRING DEMOCRACY TO ETHIOPIA.

    But after all the Ambasador should do what the Ambassder should be doing. If the Ambassader or his country don’t know what to do. That is where we come in, not that we are the last reservoir of what ever but, we are all people aren’t
    We? And as people we will prevail.

    If we all think some kind of short therm of existent on this planet any why’s which it is, is fine but if we want to live
    On the planet as we know how the world goes, generation after generation and stuff we have to think what will happen in the future. And how will our childerens will live in harmony and peace? we won’t be around then, or may be but we are not here for ever that is what we need to think about just like our grand families and stuff are not around.

    But that just life. What we need to do is care about each other and keep it going. And be loving caring and every thing and pass that to our childrens so they can live in harmony and peace with each other and the world around them.

    If the world axcepts us of what we are and and who we are and, if we except the world what it is, there won’t be any

    Death to the criminal Woynees and the Woyaneee Ambassadors who have sold their souls to the Devil and chosen to serve the evil Hitler of Ethiopia that has the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent Ethiopians. I often wonder, how some of these Ambassadors who are not part of TPLF sleep at night knowing the horrendous crimes of Melese, the looting, the massacres, the land giving and so on, and stand by the side of the tormentor of their fellow Ethiopian brothers and sisters for a dollar? SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

    Is there anything new that we have not noticed before in this report? It seems to me we are always in the habit of talking alone without developing the art of listening, and learning that goes with it. Many years ago some Ethiopians, who knew very well the behavior of weyane suggested to rise in arms against it. The overwhelming majority of citizens then, without adequately considering the national danger we faced, said no to this notion. Their explanation is simple with the help of western powers weyane is beatable at the ballot box. In spite of the fact, those who advocated armed struggle insisted that reliance on the western powers can be disappointing.
    One of the reasons that afforded weyane opportunity to be at the center of power up to the present period is the opposition’s undue reliance upon outside powers rather than reliance upon our own resources., The other shortcoming being the parochial nature of political organizations- unwillingness to transcend from self interest to that of the national interest is major hindrance. At present we are discussing about national uprising against the regime. This might be the most encouraging news, provided we made adequate planning and preparation ahead. I think Dr.Aklog has presented very valuable insight pre-planning strategy that we might need to know in advance. Here is the link to his piece.
