Emperor Tewodros and Ato Meles. By Yilma Bekele

July 28th, 2011 Print Print Email Email

I watched a video of an interview Ato Meles gave to a woman journalist. The edited version on You Tube and our Independent Diaspora sites starts without introduction and ends abruptly. We have no idea who the questioner is and why she is granted a one to one interview. The role she took in the video is that of a question reader not an inquisitive reporter.


Her questions were very profound and far-reaching and she settles for the explanation her host offers without a follow up question or probe further to get insight into the startling conclusions by The Leader. I figured the questions asked and the explanations given are meant to inform the faithful regarding the line of thought currently being favored by headquarters. That is the normal workings of a totalitarian system. The Leader telegraphs his wishes in various ways. The Soviets were good at using pictures to show who is ascending based on proximity to the boss. In the old East Europe when the Party paper bloat your picture from old files the game is over.

In this interview Ato Meles was deflecting responsibility from the approaching famine and he was giving the opposition some things to chew on since he believes they ‘hate’ him intensely no matter what. I was saddened to see that he was discussing such profound issues as the origin of our old Country the wisdom and heroism our forefathers and the recurring famine as if he was discussing some mundane issue say like climate change. There is no life in his monologue.

This was a very important and far reaching discussion. It is true they say action speak louder than words. When it comes to Ato Meles his action and his words go together. In this “interview” he manages to tell us in his own words where the justification for those actions originate from. We cannot ask for a better interview how ever distasteful it might be.

It took him all thirty seconds into the interview to get into the ring and toss our early leaders around like a beach ball. Here is the profound question that led into this incredible answer.

Question: When we think of the past generation they have left bad fingerprints specially during the final moments of the Millennium we had dangers of disintegration so what do you think the causes are?

Ato Meles: Generally for the last thousand years or so our economic and political system has been backpedaling. Several attempts were made. For example if we start with Atse Tewodros during his perioed the Japanese were embarking on centralization. Japan’s atttempt succedded and while Atse Tewodros did not. Tewodros choose conquest to unite the country and he died running one end to the other bare footed. He did not succed. Without fully understanding the source and foundation of our unity and waiting too long without a solution we were faced with disintegration. While the Japanese learnt from the westerners and concentrated on development. Wheras on our part our develompmetal efforts were full of ups and downs, not successful and wrong. When we take Atse Tewodros his plan to create Ethiopia was by conquest. Thus he even thought it civilized to manufacture weapons and succed in makeing an artillery gun. This direction did not work. After that if we take Atse Minilk he did instead of making foreign technology into ours he took the direction of relying on foreign professionals. Without the fedual nature of the society he just gave it some modern face thus the poverty acclerated and that is the other cause of the danger of our disintegration.

I am not a historian by profession. I hate to disagree but I find Ato Meles’s interpretation of my history regarding my leaders and their place in our past to be a little puzzling. I did not feel insulted. I was not upset. How could I? Thinking of Atse Tewodros like that is beyond my capacity. My humble love, great respect and gratitude forever knows no bounds when it comes to Emperor Tewodros II. He is our collective pride.

Putting that aside there is one issue that has been bugging me since I watched the video. I was trying to come up with an incident where leaders have dismissed their past so casually. I am still looking. Nations are very fragile things. Their egos have to be massaged constantly. Successful leaders know how to do that. They make their people move mountains. Even the most powerful, richest of nations wave their flags and play their national anthems constantly.

You would never hear President Obama discussing the slave ownership of Washington or Jefferson. That would be considered disrespectful. The Indian Prime Minster will never disparage Mahatma Gandhi and live to tell about it. President Zuma does not look down in condensation at the great Kingdoms of the Zulus or the father of his country Nelson Mandela. Historians can theorize all what they fancy but leaders create myth and accentuate the positive legacy. How could you doubt the strength of your foundation while you are trying to build a whole house on top of it? That is my problem.

Ato Meles as usual is standing things head down. Comparing Ethiopia to Japan is wrong and Japanese history is not like that. Japan is a homogenous Nation. It is an Island. Ethiopia is made up of several Nationalities and ethnic groups. Ethiopia is not an Island but surrounded by both friends and enemies. When Tewodros ruled Ethiopia Japan have a weak Emperor and the Shogun ruled in his name. I believe there was one Japan.

When it comes to Emperor Tewodros, I his humble subject is not learned enough to defend him. I am not worthy of that honor. But I cannot sit by when my Emperor’s vision is questioned. I am happy to take the blows however soft. To start with Emperor Tewodros succeeded in his vision of great Ethiopia. Ato Meles is my first exhibit. He is sitting in Arat Kilo because my Emperor laid the foundation one hundred fifty years ago. Now about the business of the Cannon gun, in my opinion it was a brilliant move. The British were approaching from the North, the West and the South. The Italians were sniffing at the Red Sea Coast and the French were probing from the East. The contention between Christianity and Islam was still not settled around us.

Emperor Tewodros understood having a big gun is a good deterrence. He also needed more weapons to extend the reach of his Empire. Surely you don’t expect him to Fed Ex his intentions to King Tona or poke King Aba Jifar to be friends on Facebook. Those days you sent an army and subdue. That is how Nations are forged. It is not unique to us. In fact isn’t that why we are famous? They say with envy you guys have never been colonized and we nod with swollen chest. That is a special gift from our forefathers.

One thing about Emperor Tewodros, he loved his country so much. When he lost to the British he did not shoot the hostages and he was not going to be taken prisoner to give the British a trophy. They have their people he was dead and there was no reason to stay. They burned our churches and ransacked the palace. They stole valuable items like Kibre Negest that they display in their museums and some are sold to collectors. When Ethiopia rises we will bring it all back to Magdella.

Again I am not worthy of defending Emperor Menelik. The whole world knows the true Lion of Adwa. If it was not for Menelik and his multi National army today, we will be speaking Italian and dining on spaghetti. I don’t see any reason why I should say more do you?

What was the reason of all this negative venting by The Leader? I have a theory. I am glad you knew that. My theory is based on the psychological concept developed by Sigmund Freud that stated ‘people use psychological projection to reduce their own stress or feelings of guilt.’ Simply stated Psychological projection is a form of defense mechanism in which someone attributes thoughts, feelings, and ideas which are perceived as undesirable to someone else.’ Ato Meles is projecting his own failure onto our old Emperors. I will attempt to show how.

When Emperor Tewodros appeared on the scene that was a period known as Zemene Mesafint or the Age of the Princes. The Agaws, Amharas, Tigreans, and the Oromo were in the process of creating mini kingdoms. That is what Tewodros conquered. Now what did Ato Meles do? He created the Zemene Warlords. Kilil is reversing the vision of Emperor Tewodros. Projection number 1.

Emperor Menelik was fascinated with technology. Menelik started a banking system, a postal system and signed the agreement with the French to build the one and only railway system. He defended our honor at Adwa and made black people all over the planet very proud. On the other hand during the reign of The Leader he fought with Eritrea and lost, fought with Somali Warlords and lost and is witnessing the starvation of millions of our people. We lost five thousand people at Adwa and over eighty thousand at Badme.

Projection #2

When asked about famine being synonymous for Ethiopia The Leader said, “I feel ashamed, it is disgraceful but these things can are not the mistakes of certain individuals” A very curious statement. That is what he wanted to convey all along. That is why the questioner brought it out of the blue. It is interesting. President Obama inherited a country on the verge of a meltdown. That was two years ago. Today folks are mad at him because he has not fixed the problem yet. His re election depends on him making the economy right.

Ato Meles came to power twenty years ago. That is ten times Mr. Obama’s reign. Ato Meles has been blaming the Derg since day one. That was not enough, now he is going back in time. By the next interview he might include Negest Saba. All this to avoid taking responsibility for failed policies. Instead of remorse and shame he comes with excuses. He was given a task and he failed to perform. No one is responsible except him. Not Tewodros, not Menelik, not Mengistu but the person in who is charge now is the owner of the debacle. No need to shift responsibility.

It is wrong for Ato Meles to use the power of his office and the total control of the media to subject our country to such distorted interpretation of our glorious history. It is not all right to discuss imaginary disintegration of our country so lightly. For a lot of us in the Diaspora our country is the one thing that keeps us going when things get tough. Mother Ethiopia is the source of our pride. It is a shame to stand on the shoulders of such giants and deny their achievements.

    Yilma good analysis. By the way the ‘interviewer’ was Meskerem Getachew of a woyane video propaganda production section. Reading questions from a precensored text for a cheap and hollow propaganda. The Meskerem types of ‘journalism’ is all what dictators need. That woman call herself a journalist as well… we live in that kind of reality.

    This is the right article and response of the right Ethiopian to the grand Son of Zenewi Aseris–´´The seleto- banda“.Nowdays, Meles don´t know what he took!! This is final collapse stage of the T.P.L.F and its party. during this short periode of time he rise many issues: price control, Abay dam constr., Anti-terrorism, blaming Eritra, fight with eritera, peace agrement with Ugandia, peace keeping in Sudan, Growth and transfermantion of lie and corruption of meles,blaming and complian VOA e.t.c. but he don´t want to mantion about freedom, justice, domacracy, fighting drought and famine in ethiopia. Final the most stiupied behavoir of the meles is cheeting and blaming ethiopians. he is neither ethiopian nor eritrian– he lost his identity.

    meles was making a speech in his dummy parliament saying that the shortage of sugar was caused by many peasants who have never tasted sugar, buying sugar for the first time. He said this was the result of the double digit economic growth which his government was able to achieve

    If you think about it those days of Ethiopian politics structure was like today’s England with Scotland and Ireland. Besides ours was there for a
    Ing time or our own political sistem not imported. And all kifile hagerates or regions was allawed to have their own kings
    Unlike Eingland versus Sctotland and so on besides the boold line of the british kings comes from Scotland and also mixed with those three countries in time or how ever. Just be because ase Tewodirose came up with an idea that says
    Only one king under one kingdom under one rule it doesnt mean that Ethiopia ever existed some I think Ethiopia much bigger than we thing was there way before even before the axumit kingdom. And it is funny to me, way we are stuck
    Talking about tewonderos Yohanis and so on when it comes to Ethiopian history why not a bit farther than that like Fasilledess and or his father and era and staff. And why don’t people look at there faces most cases and find out who they are? And why don’t even learn the nature and life and politices and history of the serounding countries and find out
    If this countries that was Ethiopia not long a go has a History of two thousend or some years of their own? If you know what I mean. If we say we are the only Ethiopians then who are our nehboring countries?

    Meles is speaking Spanish on this one, hope we understand, may be he should stope blaming Ethiopia for what happen
    At the time of IZANA. And if he call him self Yemenee by the way how did he became a Yemenee? Some time I think he know much more that we can even imagin when he gives our land you know to whom for nothing. Not that to say he is write doing that. If this people are Ethiopians they can tell us that they want to come to Ethiopia and we can find out
    If they are Ethiopians or not and decide if they can come Back to there country or not but not the other way. I don’t think
    We will say no to any body if they want to come and live in our country peaceful no matter who as long as we respect each other no inferiority no superiority.

    “lemebetaten derisen nebber” was my favorite part of this whole interview. I think I she meant to say to him, what are
    You talking about we wore always together but almost separated. Well she can say that if she doesn’t know what he did
    To the country after all. Or may be she is not saying what I think she is saying to him.

    Thanks Yilma. Aluta continual. No no I meant to say Abetuta Continual.

    Narcissist Meles loves money and hates Ethiopia and Ethiopians and Twedroes loved his country to his last breath. If Twedroes were alive today, Meles and his TPLF criminal buddies wouldn’t be on power to steal, kill and sell our country, period!

    “Hunger” is not so negative word for Weyenes for which they hould be ashamed.For them the word is associated with profit from aid money.

  8. Development without freedom

    Ethiopians will continue to starve as long as their wealth is used to impose dictatorship on them. Weyenes can not feed the people and Federal Police at the same time with limited resources.

  9. The Eritrean one!

    All leaders around the world be it yesterday’s or todays are not perfect just like any other human being; howver, the types of Meles and his boss Bereket Simon had never existed in the entire world. The only reason they continue to survive one-at-a-time is because they are perfectly slaving for the outside world in the name of Ethiopia. My fellow Ethiopian brothers and sisters Ethiopia’s image had been crippled for many years but with the addition of weyane at the helm that crippleness had been doubled in the past 20 years, thanks a la weyanes style diplomacy and pretendiness- Remeber, in Meles’s thinkink he is 6’6 feet tall and 260 lbs weight. No matter what type of suit they dress him each day, no matter what type of shoe they donate him from America, no matter what type donated wheat they feed him from Canada, no matter what type of khat they bring him from Kenya, and no matter all the photo-op with present or past world leaders he is still the same aiga jungle product ugly and midget weyane!!!

    Meles is a crook liar as usual. He hates Ethiopia and anything Ethiopian. He hates Theodros because Theodros is Ethiopian and was fighting to unite the country and Meles stands to disintegrate Ethiopia. Theodros is a hero, and Meles is a coward who abandoned his collogues while in a fight and disappeared for months and came up with excuses while he was in tplf. Theodros was trying to defend his country by creating Sevastopol gun while Meles is buying firearms to silence his opponents. Theodros was taking drastic measures on those who steal from the poor people while Meles is the head of Mafia who steals the money that comes from donors for starved Ethiopians and sends the money abroad to his account. A liar, a sadistic killer and a head of bandits like him does not have a morale authority to speak about any Ethiopian leaders including Mengistu. Meles is the worst of all who is working day and night to disintegrate Ethiopia with out shame. He never felt ashamed by famine in Ethiopia. He likes it. Any famine or catastrophic disaster on the people triggers happiness on him as it is a profit since his days of Bob Geldof’s 100 million dollars. He misappropriate the country’s resource and year in year out when the famine story circulating on foreign media he start dancing in art killo counting the money that is coming on the name of the starved. This is who Meles is and every Ethiopian knows better about Teodros, Minilik, Hailesillasie or Mengistu. No one wants to hear from him.

    Regardless of the way the interview was conducted, Yelma is throwing chip shots at Dictator Meles. Meles only was observing at the history of the under Development of Ethiopia by contrasting it with those that succeeded. No one with the right mind can refute our lack of development.

    Comparing the economies of Southeast Asia with a Sub-Saharan Africa may be a suspect to Yelma & others but in at the times of their respective independence, the countries of Asia and Africa were at comparable stages of Economic Development and were in comparable standard of living.

    In the decades that followed the majority of Sub-Saharan including Ethiopia experienced developmental failures while East and Southeast Asian nations experienced economic growth. That was the premise of Dictator Meles. What lesson can be learned was the topic.

    Off course if we mix apples and oranges (independence and lack of development) we can arrive at Yelma’s stupid conclusion saying Dictator Meles lacks Ethiopian pride.

    I didn’t see anything that denigrate Aste Teodros or Menilik. He was only assessing the lack of our under development and while doing that described the weaknesses of the regimes of the past that included some kingdoms and the last Derg. He believes his present Developmental State will bring Ethiopian Renaissance and that is his opinion. Yelma can argue against that but didn’t do that.

    It is not called for, for Yelma to write how much he is proud of Atse Teodros or Atse Menelik more that Meles etc. Such comparison is irrelevant for us.

    I remember Meles interviewing about building the Nile Dam and talking about war threat with Egypt. He said something like, those who tried to invade us in the past didn’t live long enough to tell a story and the outcome won’t be any different if they tried the same thing now. What does that tell you? He has no lack of pride of his ancestors keeping the country independence.

    Grow up Yelma.

    Grown Dawi,
    Which Meles is that you talking about? For you and Meles the history of Ethiopia began when woyane came to power. Every thing before that was ‘teret’. The delusional, the self incriminating (by denying what he had been asserting and implementing in the 18 years), and now all of a sudden uttering flabby remarks about the past? No clumsy past analysis will make him ‘wise’ or different from the man every one knows – who stands to destroy the foundation of our statehood… his effort and exertion brought about the most fraudulent form government in the history of Ethiopia. The result is clearly seen – with 10million people starving, and the remaining over three quarter of the population living below the line of poverty. Meles is exporting not only coffee and live stock to Arab countries, but also live human beings (the first maid export corporation formed under woyane).

    See the show case buildings, roads built with huge loan and begged dollar? Flatter yourself with the shinning red lights of Addis and forget the millions starving. You too, are entitled to your crap response to this article.

    I can see how you are a ‘grown adult’, enjoy the red light Dawi.

    Brother Tekle,

    You and other people of that land have the right to speak out about the grief, suffering and sorrow you mentioned above.

    As Messay expressed it on ESAT lately you just can’t refuse to recognize the development of Meles or what he has become or CAN BECOME. He has now consolidated his power and is probably a full fledged Dictator Extraordinaire. His consolidation of power started after he “striped the jackets of Seye and Co. and chased them out of the hall” per Eskender.

    “Messay’s Manifesto” calls Dictator Meles to accept RECONCILIATION WITH ELITES. I fully support that idea.

    “The TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION, the first of the nineteen held internationally to stage public hearings, was seen by many as a crucial component of the transition to full and free democracy in South Africa. Despite some flaws, it is generally (although not universally) thought to have been successful.”

    Off course I understand for Ethiopians it is pertinent to query whether the Meles/State is prepared or willing to face up to a Truth and Reconciliation as in the case of South Africa.

    Likewise are non-state actors like the (OLF) Oromo liberation movement, (ONLF) Ogaden liberation front equally ready to face such a Commission?

    Dictator Meles has proven to be an out of the box thinker and Prof. Messay Kebede has recognized that and has challenged him to step up to the plate.

    Messay on ESAT is whacked! The man who brought untold suffering to millions of Ethiopians— the man who gave the order to the mowing down of innocent civilians in the streets of Addis, Awassa, Gambela, Gonder and so on—the man who stole billions of dollars from the starving children of Ethiopia—the man who caused the deaths of thousands in a meaningless war in Eritrea and Somalia—the man who doesn’t like to utter the word”Ethiopia”—the man who glorified ethnic division for the sole purpose of “divide and rule”….etc. can keep his wealth and live happily ever after!!

    Dissapointed with ESAT’s host Gizaw for not bringing up the issue of accountability. Can Meles have his cake and eat it too? Are we supposed to forgive and forget all heinous crimes he committed? Even a small time thief pays for crimes he committed let alone a murderer of Melese’s caliber. If that is the case, why not invite Mengistu Hailemariam to consult this future utopian government!!

    Fortunately, Meles is not going with Messay’s proposal knowing the opposition is toothless.When the opposition becomes a real opposition, wakes up from its comma and show a sign of life–Meles will find a way out and live happily after six feet under the ground.

    Yesiga Aynet Tira Bilut Tafia Ale !
    Yehene Buke Enatun Geday KeTewodros Gar Meen Meen Debalekew!
    Yehnen Feri Yehnen Ruach Meen Debalkew !

    Melese simply said is lempun Bozene.His irreverantial handling of Ethiopian iconic leaders is done intentional. The primary purpose of the speech appear to demean the statures of these beloved leaders while at the same time present himself as reformist leader of what he called HEDASE. The question is Hedase for whom? Certainly not for the Ethiopian people. The hedase he speaks is for the Hamasenite Legese and his family run EFORT.As to the Ethiopian people, for the past twenty years, they have been subject to economic deprevation, poletical persecution and endangerment and forced dislocation by the regime.
    As someone has said above, all this means nothing unless we the people train, arm, and feed the army of our own, stand up in the face of this outcast, and force him to vacate power. Understandably, orderly transfer of power is every one’s concern, this seems to be also the one of the object of the discussion that the dictator has in mind when he gave this speech. That is by heavily criticizing the policy of past leaders, for what he called their reliance on weaponry as a choice of policy for national development and growth. Though he speaks in this fashion the dictator nowhere gives a hint to share power with the people. He is simply saying his government is not committed to military building. However, this is double talk. He must have his own game plan for war and destruction or else why was it necessary for his regime to order 200 Tanks at the moment. Only when the entire Ethiopian people come to see the danger we are in and devise a common plan that we are able to remove melese.That is the differing many organizations need to become less than one national army before we hope to topple Legese.ALEJA is not to take us to victory. Because the parties in these coalition have different agenda. We need to compromise on how to share power after melee’s removal now, one’s this hurdle is out it will be easy to bring the differing forces under one national army.

    Yes Dawi, just one single question… not to answer but to digest; here it goes:- Have you ever seen or read an event where TPLF has/had resolved an issue (since its formation) in a dialogue, reconciliation or compromise? Just give me one single example and we shall capitalise on that. This is not a propaganda kind of statment. Give me just one example… Messay? Yeah, good in articulating the skeleton of issues of higher standards. In actual fact Messay is far away from the ultimate and objective reality… The ojective truth is that Ethiopia is ruled by a mafia…like it or not.

    Brother Tekle,

    Again you are MISSING THE POINT my Brother:

    You can’t talk about TPLF and Dictator Meles in the same breath anymore! They’re like apples and oranges. Talking about Dictator Meles the current book and his previous bestseller is like comparing apples and oranges.

    For those who listen, Messay has made it clear on ESAT interview. The decision is up to Meles to answer Messay’s Manifesto. There is no previous TPLF to stop him anymore.

    He is now the Boss, Dictator, Authoritarian extraordinaire PERIOD.

    My observation on the comment about Atse Teodros:

    He was never defeated but once, Dictator Meles said. Atse Teodros brought his own demise like Japan. Didn’t he?

    We learn from the country Japan. The Good and the Ugly. They were the first naval power in Asia. Excessive Brouhaha also brought the 2 atomic bombs dropped on it in 1945.

    Drama, not for “so one day people accept his leadership ” but so people accept his divid and concur tactics that he is using now for his and who ever elses benefit. And to harm the country. And he is not alone doing that. There are many
    Like him and with him. This is a theater perpetrated by our nehboring countries and out siders to take our country for them selves and he is busy helping them do that. I can brake it down for you if you want but I don’t think any body can mis the it. When they talk of Global economy or trade may be it should at least have a fair global standard interest and
    Benefit by the way, unless it is that old music the big shark eats the little fish. Depite the compitition in the business.

    If food prize goes high at wall street, who benefits from it? ECX or the poor Farmers who doesn’t know what the hake is going on? And when it goes high, what makes it high? People eating to much or that tells you there is a shortage food in the world. Even if we just talk about Ethiopia, we are leasing our farm land and so on while people are starving while
    We are bagging for food. Imagin if one of this country’s that donates money when we starve gives that kind of money
    To enhance agreecaltur and help Ethiopian farmers to farm modern way, we will never hear any bad news like famine
    And so on and we can help the world by creating a fair market and we will stop bagging them for money or food. And
    Since our country is good for farming we can help a lot of people at need of food and so on and would have been great for east Africa in general. They cab buy it from us if they can’t farm for a lot of reason like drought and so on instade
    Of waiting for ships caring food across the sea’s and at the mercy of sea Pairetes like the Somali Pairets.

    And since all east African needs Ethiopian river waters it should have been a country that we all care about to protect
    The forest to protect the well being of the people at the end who can care and preserve it through time educate the people, create a health friendship among each other no matter what religion or ethnic we all come from or what country
    And have respect for each other and protect each others interest and bring peace in region and so on…….for our own
    Safety and stability before we talk about others or the east African global input or effort or what it can bring to the world
    Besides begin the birth of civilization. To day if we can live with each other in peace and if we can care about our selves
    And respect each other, that will be the thing that will bring a lot of peace just not to the world but also to our own hearts. At least we won’t say, should I get married? Do I have a country? A community? I’s there hope in my country?
    When do we stope being starved? Hopeless? Homeless? Leaderless? Landless? Riverless?………….or, Am I a part of any thing around her? Who am I?……………

    One way or another I think we all ask our selves this things. But why????? …….and then you come to think, it is not
    What we say but it is what some else made us say or some wrong thinking that lead us to this kind of thinking. Or it could be some individuals like bad leaders and so on. But we can correct it and go on with peace with each other no matter what happened in the past. There are some leaders we can holed accountable for what happened in the near
    Past and we can make them pay for it but other wise I don’t know what we can do about the past.

    So what I am saying is, don’t liesten to Meles, please people Unite, we are all Ethiopians. Other wise do you call the
    Arabs and Indians that meless brings are the one that are Ethiopians??????? And they are every where in Ethiopia.
    Liars and thieves don’t listen to them and don’t follow them. I am not even sure they are all Ethiopians. Besides some
    Known fools.

    But any how this or that, we need to farm using our rivers. Why would we bother with the food we don’t have any ways.

    And we don’t even have enough rain in most of the country now. And we have the wrights to use our rivers and must
    Use it to get out of our problems.

    Thank you for raising this vital question for DAWI.

    “Have you ever seen or read an event where TPLF has/had resolved an issue (since its formation) in a dialogue, reconciliation or compromise? Just give me one single example and we shall capitalize on that. This is not a propaganda kind of statment”.You can, clearly, see instead of honestly considering to address the vital question you have asked he chose, altogether, to evade it. How sad! How disingenuous! It is that Dawi is out to deceive by swinging a hard ball politics of hyperbole. His chief object seems to be
    First, discredit Yelma for what he said commenting on ideas outside the scope of the speech. This is an irrelevant charge on his part, because what Yelma does is dissect the contents of the speech and made comments as he sees it fit. How dare can he tell another human that his approach is immature that is awaiting some to mature it?
    Second, perhaps his main object is to get many of us transfixed on Dr.Messays piece. In doing so he aims to resurrect some hope from prodemocracy opposition in the hope arousing
    Some form of debate on this issue. In fact, somewhere in his comment he said this,

    “Off course I understand for Ethiopians it is pertinent to query whether the Meles/State is prepared or willing to face up to a Truth and Reconciliation as in the case of South Africa.” Bear in mind, Dawi glossed over the vital question of Tekle, but he insists as in the above statement the opposition need to revisit the question of Reconciliation.
    The truth is the Ethiopian people for the last twenty years shown patient remonstration with the belligerent by pointing out South Africa as our model. Unlike Wadi Melees answered this question without equivocation: he said go to the jungle and fight for freedom. In effect what he said is he and his party will be the sole rulers of the country for forcible future. Therefore Dwai’s insisted to give messay’s piece a chance once again is impracticl.If there has been any change of heart on the part of Melese, truly he could have made some reforms on his own initiative that could led us believe for such possiblities.For instance, we could have seen a national Army made up of all the cross-section of our society. Melees does not think outside the box as Wadi erroneously asserts rather he is a man whose world view is deeply rooted in ethinocetrist view of the world.
    Therefore the appeal for Messay’s piece by Wadi could have been relevant for consideration,provided,there was willingness on the part of the ruling elit.Unfortunately,the last twenty years has, conclusively, proved for Ethiopians the impossiblity of such prospect. As it has been pointed out the political situation in the country is at an impass.Yet, this does not suggest the invincibility of weyane or the impossibility of armed resistance against it. I do believe it is wasting time and valuable energy to introduce the question of reconciliation with weyane.
    As to the speech by melees he will always do his best to discredit defame and blemish Ethiopian Historical figures. But that is all the damage he can do no more .Nevertheless, as Mamo in another place pointed out, there is a great body of written documented work that will discredit his destructive message. Many historians handle Teodros reverentially, they speak of him as a man who possess the spirit of the highest order, extremely courages, and bold in the face of adversity. This my friends is the staff that made Teodros,something that Legese won’t come close or succeed even if he tries to imitate.

    And when they lease our farming and so on lands and if they buy every good land all over the world sell it Let’s say for about three or four big companies, and if this companies
    Decide not to sell the food, let’s say eat it by them selves or dump it in the ocean for what ever reason doesnt it mean that we all go starve globally? And does Issayas try to sell fish? Salt? Instead of Taxing Eritirian people while they live
    Abroad? Why are they against Ethiopia? Badimay? I don’t think so, if that was the case then Meles wouldnt have been
    Our prime minister. And it is not even for them (Eritirians ) neseserly but for the………..you know who. What they do to Ethiopia and Eritiria is like when Mengistu Hile Mariam charged people money for the bullet that he shout to kill them.

    Who could turn of light on people while asking for money from people for beulding of another dam? And while selling
    Power to Jibuty ?????? And who will change peoples national languages?…………..why don’t at least tell us what are up to? We know any ways but………I mean………BEKA. Enough is really enough.

    And do you know how much of the donated money for the starved goes to food shipping payment? For airplanes

    And also let’s not for get no matter what ever excuse Thay come up with to justify what they do by leasing and so on

    To third world countries and go knows who. But how ever this third world countries shouldn’t even wory about who ever
    Els’s currency sinc their is no fair game in the play at least hang on to your own currency when it comes to exchanging money, despite inflation and so on with in the country which probaley has got nothing to do with changing our currency’s. Besides some countries like Ethiopia, I mean Meles’s government change curencys so the few rich or elit can controls and use the nations capital and resources and business’s. And speaking of the elite, it is TPLF and thieir
    Friends and Cronys. And they can car less if a cow walks upside down as long as they do what they do and as long as
    They don’t loos the greap on what they are holding on to.

    Yonas –

    [[Ethiopia purges 7 army generals, 240 colonels, 500 senior officers]]

    I presume Messay takes messages like the above as a good sign of future “Army made up of all the cross-section “. New Id’s without ethnic check marks in Addis…. same thing – progress in the right direction.

    I have read the purged army were all Anti-Eritreans. The proof – ” Brig.-Gen Migbe Haile was one of the heroes of the Ethio-Eritrean war.”?

    I don’t expect folks like Yilma to like Meles or support him, but stacking on is unforgivable to me.

    BTW – Ethiotube has new Amharic version of Messay. http://www.ethiotube.net/video/14953/Dr-Messay-Kebede-analysis-about-his-research-on-Meles-Zenawis-Political-Dilemma-and-the-Developmental-State-part-1

    The problem with you is that you are obsessed with the delusion that ALL Agazis are Nazi and that Ethiopia has to be de Nazified and the whole Army fired.

    An absolutely crazy idea that will lead to a long bloody quagmire.

    If the US kept the Iraqi Army and supervised the construction of a participative political process with audits on corruption they could have been out of Iraq years ago ( keeping some key bases as they did in Germany and Japan) and Iraq would now be rich from oil and could be paying them back the costs of the intervention. Can one learn from that?

    Messay is only showing other possibilities after learning and studying what really happens when you overthrow a Dictator. What is the cost?

    In Iraq for example, about 100,000 dead, half a million widows and orphans, millions of refugees and the ethnic cleansing of the Sunnis from Baghdad.

    what are you saying in here. This is the second round restructuring of weyane ethnic military by legese. We can understand his concern and fear. The accumulated guilt and crime is the direct cause for the fear and paranoia of Legese.The fact that this report came during the time where Ethiopians made vow to stand in unity against Legese and his cabal front gives a hint about Legese state of mind. There is reasonable concern now in the camp of TPlf over the new found prospect for a unified action against the regime. It may be that Legese’s speech against Emperor Tewdros and Menilik was meant to split the unity of Ethiopians by appealing to None Amahras to accept his disparaging remarks about Ethiopia’s Iconic leaders. In the coming days the more closely all Ethiopian opposition work, we can anticipate a dreadful trepidation to brew in the camp of weyane. HIZBAWI AMESE, IS THE SOWERD OF THE PEOPLE, and AND IS ABLE TO CRUSH THE WEYANE MILITARY ARSONEL. what does the purge of the ethnic weyane soldiers mean to the rest of us, any ways?

    In the 1970th Enderias Eshete in the then Ethiopian student movement (ESUNA) opposed the “independence clause” of Nationalities. EPRP supporters won. Woyane upped the ante and indorsed Eritrea as a “colony” of Ethiopia; No major foreign power supported the case until the TPLF/EPLF were able to create a de facto situation on the ground in 1991. The rest is history.

    It seems to me Inderias opposed “independence” on time and when it was too late and TPLF/EPLF “won de facto” he indorsed it. He is a practical man. “True practicality is born of objective thinking, that is, thinking that flows into us from the things themselves.”

    He didn’t run away like some of us but, stayed and contributed as much as he can.

    Having said that, if “Messay’s Manifesto” gets accepted by the Dictator today and Messay ends up joining “the practical man” to do same, you & your likes will be the only once greening.

    All of this spareting Eritiria business was at first to legitimize the non Ethiopian Italian Solders in Eritiria and Ethiopia
    As Ethiopians and Eritirians because the Italians left them there or for got them. And they wore there long enough for some of them to be mixed with Ethiopians including Eritirian Ethiopians. But how ever they the Italianse might be using them
    And still are and there is also the Arab and musilim world and Egypt, Libia Sudan and so on who alined them elves
    With them. They wore together to begin with as far as we know. If you understand what I mean. Italians never came
    To invade Ethiopia by them selves.

    And also to legitimize their crimes against the nation, to make it sound like some Ethiopians with a different agendas
    Fighting each other and killing each other. Not that you have the wrights to kill your own people because of their political

    If you hear Messay’s 5 part lecture in Amharic in Ethio-tube he explains the reasons why Dictators including Meles may want to cooperate with “elites”; in other words, it is in their interest to change while retaining power.

    The fact that Meles has consolidated his power means he can play a positive DICTATOR role if he chooses to according to Prof. Messay.


    The purge of that many one ethnic officers from the Army at the same time is a step in the right direction if replaced by people that reflect the rest of society. Don’t you think so?

    Every one wonders why you keep bringing Messay’s piece entiltled.It would not work for Ethiopia; essay in his piece breathes every bit of it a utopian; he must be one. This, however, won’t work for Ethiopia. The Ethiopian people and the differing Ethiopian opposition parties are shrewd and pursue a more practical means to the political problem of the country than Messay would like to acknowledge. His scheme is unrealistic and impractical. The main thesis of his argument is centered on this assertion.

    “The whole issue it to know what compels elites to seek compromise and agreement rather than domination and exclusion. Studies of democratic changes show that when prolonged struggles over power and interests among various elite groups reach a stalemate or when a common threat endangers their existence, such as invasion by a foreign country or civil disorder and war, competing elites develop a disposition toward compromise.” For one there is no any historical parallel for what he proposed. He gave no such instance. “On the democratization process”. His idea of democracy and the elite and the whole thing hangs on the following thesis. The other idea that supports his thesis is statement what he calls: the fear factor.
    In this whole saga he insist that, on both sides of the aisle, the elite’s fear of revolution, or invasion by hostile states, or fear of takeover of power by radical extremists could be incentive for power sharing.
    His proposal will not simply work for Ethiopia. For one, for his plan to be considered there has to be a model or historical parallel to refer to; There is none.Second, HAD THERE BEEN ANY INTEREST TO ENTETTAIN MESSAY’S PIECE WITHIN THE OPPOSTION, wyanites would have loved to use it as merely a discussion point without bothering about its practicality, so long it promotes their interest to Stay in power.
    Dictator Melese will not play any sort of positive role, as you have suggested. He has said before for Ethiopians if you want SILTAN OR POWER you must fight for it. No one believes now at the eleven hour he will change his mind; nor will Ethiopians entertain such an idea. Only a lunatic can be subject to such delusional thoughts.
