Itching the unitching (Yalbeluten Makek) By Elias Mengesha (Heppenheim-Germany)

The recent campaign of the Meles regime throughout the Diaspora to raise funds by selling bonds and using the proceeds to build a dam on the Blue Nile river has met fierce resistance. It’s ironic to oppose such a development project but the fact of the matter is that the Meles regime is not interested in genuine economic task but to give Ethiopians in the Diaspora and at home an agenda to talk about and divert their attention from a possible mass uprising in removing the ethnocentric dictatorial regime of the Woyanes.

In addition to the Blue Nile dam saga, Woyanes also tried to test the feeling of Ethiopians by announcing another conflict with Eritrea. They thought by telling Ethiopians about a possible war with Eritrea, they could bring the nation under their command and control so that domestic rebellion against them could be suppressed.

What is happening in North Africa including Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and other middle eastern countries is a wild fire that is going to engulf many autocratic nations in Africa. The train of freedom will cruise south bound all the way from Egypt to Zimbabwe and it will for sure affect Ethiopia. Freedom is colorless. One should not be White, Arab, Indian, Chinese or Black to enjoy freedom and dignity. Freedom comes naturally to every human being but will later be taken away or oppressed by dictators like Mubarak, Gadafi or Meles.

In pursuing freedom, many people could die, properties get damaged and fearful turmoil could prevail on the horizon of nations that struggle to remove their dictatorial leaders. However, the sacrifices paid would bring the change sought and it is simply a matter of time before it materializes.
There are three common attributes of dictators whoever they are and where ever they live. These are lies, fear and control. Woyanes are expert liars who have double faces one for the local and another for the foreigners. They are also expert terrorisers who bring forward issues that spread fear among Ethiopians. They are also ruthless killers who have even gone to the extent of forming their own brand army called Agazi to silence decent and eliminate opposition.

In spite of these, the people of Ethiopia who suffer from poverty, disease, media suffocation, lack of rule of law, nepotism and all kinds of corruption created and maintained by the Meles regime are looking for change and probably waiting for the right moment or a triggering situation. Woyanes are well aware of the developing mass appraisals everywhere and they would do anything to stay in power. The greatest weakness of dictators is their inability to learn from history until it is too late for them to fix a broken system. Just like any other dictator, Mr. Meles and his regime will whether away by popular movement and these guys who look formidable and untouchable will perish and definitely face justice for the crimes and sins they have been exhibiting throughout their reign. Freedom will take over suppression and goodness will reign over evil, and that is for sure.

    Don’t go overthrowing without a replacement plan.

    We see today, in order to avoid conflict, there is a lot of temptation to be vague by everyone including Ginbot7/OLF/ONLF. But vagueness could be a recipe for disaster when you’have overthrown a government; the country’s little social and economic systems will further be destroyed and collapse.

    To endorse a revolution by your definition would be to endorse an approach under the assumption that “ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN THIS”; I am afraid we have tried that already. Such an approach is irrational.

    Dear Elias Good article! Keep it up!and I Like this strong word from your article “guys who look formidable and untouchable will perish and definitely face justice for the crimes and sins they have been exhibiting throughout their reign. Freedom will take over suppression and goodness will reign over evil, and that is for sure” The freedom movement clock is ticking for the MELES/Tplfite tribal racist aparthied minority system. The Sunami movement that started in North Africa & Middle east will cover ethiopia soon!

    Who ever you are your idea is just nothing. If you were political minded at least you could have differentiate between national interest and party’s interest. You are wasting your time by making noise empty words. Please to be honest you are an outsider and stay out from something you do not know or you do not want to know.

    Dear Elias , Thank you for your article .Don’t be frustrated by negative comments made by ‘obvious’ people . They want to silence you as new comer applying their practice in Ethiopia.
    Some of them parroting what EPRDF/TPLF lamented: ‘oppositions have no program /policy options..etc ” which is irrelevant and out of date .
    I look forward to more articles from you . God Bless you

    To speak of , is there any demarcation between party interest and national interest in Ethiopia now under TPLF? Refer to many shameful speechs made by Meles .My brother , there is no national interest on the side of TPLF only and only party’s interest.Look back their history from their inception till now .

    Tazabi is a well known Weyane agent. However, he maybe right on one thing, there are many anti Ethiopians including TPLF who will take advantage of the over throwing of Meles regime, We Ethiopians while struggling to get rid of Meles regime and its whole gangs, I mean all of toxic TPLF, we should also prop up a transitional government that will truly lead Ethiopia to democracy. Do we have one? If so, who and how are they going to be taking over, etc.. all these questions should be answered and be ready to prevent any chaos that might lead Ethiopia to extreme danger. Of course, Meles regime will also take advantage by welcoming anti Ethiopians to take over before the true Ethiopians take their rightful places. So, we need to strive and strategize transitional governments. and what of the army. Again, TPLF will use this like people TAZABI above to terrorize Ethiopians, if TPLF is gone, Ethiopia will break, we will be invaded, etc…

    longlive Ethiopia
