The Aid Republic of Ethiopian By Tedla Asfaw

April 10th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

A country that failed to feed its people can only be called a failed state or the ” Aid Republic”. World bank with its rich members are feeding more than 8 million people if the number is correct until 2015, The Aid Republic “election”, according to their press release of last month. Will the eligible “voters” out of the 8 million people “vote” for the regime or for the World Bank which is feeding them ? Meles Zenawi is boasting of double digit growth for a decade now and its own study claims to take millions of people out of poverty. Does that number include those who are ruled under World Bank too ? Millions of city dwellers are starving due to high inflation of food prices. The teachers strike in Addis Ababa and other regions is a strike for living wage to buy Food. Starving teachers can only produce starving children. If you add all these the 8 million people projected by World bank for food aid is totally absurd.

Mind you this is a regime that got more than 30 billion dollar in the last two decades and stashed more than 11 billion dollar out of country. World Bank is feeding not only Ethiopians but Meles Zenawi’s Mafia to fatten itself. I will not be surprised if some foreigners who are closely working with this regime have also benefited from the looted money. The West is feeding Ethiopia while contracting Meles to fight their war in Somalia. It gives sense for them because it will be expensive otherwise from the cost of war in Afghanistan and Iraq as of now which is more than one trillion dollar and tens of thousands of lives

The Aid Republic of Meles is selling Ethiopian farmland more than 3 million hectare to India, Saudi Arabia and others by placing its killing machine for protection of foreign landlords. The people of Gambella, Afar are revolting and will not allow anyone to exploit their land to enrich themselves and regime cadres. Extrajudicial killing is underway in Gambella to terrorize the people to submit to foreign landlords. Karuturi and Saudi Star major landlords in Ethiopia are now public enemies because the regime is shading our people blood to protect them.

The Aid Republic of Ethiopia is a “Money Republic” for foreign landlords while Ethiopians are stateless in their own country. More than 20,000 Ethiopians right now are ethnically cleansed from Gura Ferda South Ethiopia from their productive farmland and dumped to Addis Ababa to clear the land for foreign/regime connected investors. World Bank has a job to feed these families if they are serious on welfare job they are engaged in Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is a country of abundant land,water and hard working people like the ethnically cleansed farmers from Gura Ferda. Ethiopians will feed themselves and do not need any food aid from West. All foreign landlords and foreign experts like World Bank are prescribing what is good for their own. Foreign landlords and so called experts of World Bank are part of a problem not solutions for a country like Ethiopia to feed itself.

Ethiopia’s inability to feed itself is a product of corrupt unpatriotic regime that is on power for more than two decades now. China and India became self sufficient in food during this period of time. It is not acceptable to keep Ethiopians on food aid forever. No to Aid Republic of Ethiopia financed by the World Bank, No to foreign landlords who are buying our land to feed their own people !!!!

    Yes! No to who compromises the need of others nations to fillful theirs.

    It’s every Ethiopian responsibility to protect him/her self and others from the dangers of isolation on a national
    And individual level. We are people of the Ethiopian nation, we demand respect of our rites and freedom as citizens
    Of our home land and we demand respect of our national territoys including the red sea ( the Eritirian sea ).

    Long live Ethiopia!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the typical propaganda of the Amharas because it is only the Amharas who hate the wondergul achievements of the EPRDF government. The people of Tigray are proud of their heroic and visionary sons like Meles Zenawi who is also leading Africa. The Amharas suffer from jelousy and attack our intelligent leader.
    The Amharas have been dealt a crushing blow by our leader ato Meles and they will never recover to oppress and exploit others in Ethiopia. The Amharas have special hatred against the people of Tiray and we are aware of this thanks to the wonderful teachings of ato Meles Zenawi. The jelous Amaharas can not stop our growth and development. They will only bark and yell in the cyber space as this Amhara man called Tedla Asfaw is doing.

    Some diaspora Ethiopians might recall the popular television commercial “WHERE IS THE BEEF?” aired years ago. It questioned the gradual disappearance of beef from the hamburger bun. Similarly,the question of the day for us Ethiopians should be “where the hell is the money?”. I am talking about billions of dollars looted by Meles and his partners in crime and stashed out of Ethiopia. Again, where the hell is the money?

    For starters, the amount involved so far(11 billion) and growing by the minute can only be stashed away in a sophisticated money laundering scheme such as trade based laundering. My best guess is the corrupt woyane regime has means that provides it cover to move and launder large amounts of the ill-gotten wealth all over the world particularly the Cayman islands. I have no doubt Sheik Al-Amoudi plays a big role consulting how to hide the loot since he is also part of the scheme to bleed Ethiopia dry. One can only wonder why? companies like Karaturi nailed a “sweetheart deal” where they were allowed to acquire the best fertile lands in the nation practically for nothing unless Woyane has a hand in the profit sharing. It doesn’t surprise me one bit either, if Woyane is involved in illegal business activities collaborating with drug cartels or notorious mafia groups in order to learn the trade of vanishing stolen billions from the public eye.

    The sons and daughters of Woyane thugs attend world renowned universities paying enormous amounts for tuition which in the real world their parents can not afford. They move around in chauffeur driven limousines protected by armed bodyguards 24/7. These spoiled brats groomed to take over and rule Ethiopia for the next 50 years are squandering public money that can feed thousands of starving Ethiopian children. When the political landscape shifts and Woyane finds itself running, we best follow the children of Meles& co. to track down the hidden treasure. Alongside the stolen loot, the children will inherit sins of their fathers which is going to haunt them for the rest of their lives.

    Every single person or institution who go out of their way to give Woyane’s dictatorial regime full-fledged support should be scrutinized as to their real motives–chances are part of the loot might have ended in their pockets. For instance, the two Woyane mouthpieces in diaspora namely; “AIGA FORUM” and “ETHIOPIA FIRST” definitely share a piece of the pie. My sixth sense tells me participants on these websites own white fenced homes with expensive vehicles in the garage, command a fat bank account and receive a regular hefty pay check for his/ hers greed induced contribution. I don’t have to remind you where that cash supply originates from!

    I urge every country loving Ethiopian to point out Woyane mercenaries in the diaspora. We need to compile names for future prosecution. These enemy collaborators have simply committed treason against Ethiopia and its people. The punishment for “treason” is death by hanging or face the firing squad. Those who enriched themselves with blood money with the expense of poor Ethiopian citizens should cough it up to the last penny. EMF website did a fantastic job last year exposing Woyane fat cats in Atlanta including solomon hodamu. Have you observed bellies and derriers on those guys? If you happen to cut those bellies and see inside, you are bound to find a starved Ethiopian child staring at them dead in the eye. Time we put them pigs on a diet plan!

    The capitalist system systematically and clandestinely plunders and robes you to starvation and then it stretches its hand as if it is a philanthropist. It takes away or cheats you systematically 100 dollar from you and when you get starved or impoverished to death then it gives you back some 5 dollars as donation or as loans as if it is kindly. The entire game in capitalist system has gradually evolved in to such a huge pool of Ponzi-Scheme. Due to SAP(Structural Adjustment Programs) that is called as the “Economic-Medicine” of IMF and World-Bank that has been systematically implemented in 3rd world countries, then the entire mass has been systematically plunged in to impoverishment and the aftermath political economical and social chaos. Such financial institutions institutions established under Bretton-Woods agreement following world war-II are mainly such a strong instruments of Anglo-American Global-Capitalism Empire. It may seem thy help as but in reality is what they help us is what they have already robbed us systematically in advance. There is no such a thing as pure and humanly humanitarian philanthropy in capitalism. Nations are systematically and clandestinely lulled and trapped in to ‘debt’ hostage in which they must not be indebted in the first place because it can not be paid as it is economically inefficient in the first place. Most of the time when a nation is made hostage of certain debt trap who mainly benefits from such indebtedness are transnational companies who make unfair business that is not that much beneficial to the mass. So the mass is systematically made indebted for which the mass is not as such aware, responsible and beneficiary. And then when a nation is indebted then it is heinously and systematically being prepared for massive plundering of all it resources, in what is called “Asset Grab” in order to ‘pay’ the debt. What has been tragically happening in Greek and others PIGS(Portugal Ireland Greek and Spain) especially in Greek is such Ponzi-Scheme of global Capitalism.
    So the main insidious scheme of global capitalism is to make nations, especially the mass, to get ‘indebted’ in unfair and immoral and economically inefficient debt trap so that it shall not have a right to say anything on its nation’s resources. So today in Ethiopia and all other 3rd world nations the price of food and other basic consumable necessity items has been deliberately made to skyrocket in price in order to systematically plunder and impoverish the mass. And if the mass is impoverished to this extent of misery then it bows and becomes subservient to elites of the global capitalists system if it is so brainwashed and becomes so docile plebs. And if the mass is well conscious of the very source of its misery that is this all sabotage, plundering implemented in ponzi-scheme then it will say no and then revolt against the system. There is no any scientific or moral and rational basis for the very few capitalist elites (even less that even 0.01) percent to make the global mass their debt hostage and slave. There is no any reason that our TPLF mafia style regime claims that it is subsidizing edible oil and wheat while in reality it is not subsidizing us while the mass is even being unfairly robed by unfair skyrocketing prices.
    If I was able to buy one litter of oil for 20 birr and then all of a sudden its price is deliberately made to skyrocket to 50 Birr and under this condition if the government is still claiming that is is subsiding for edible oil how come I have to accept this joke and game? Before 2 or 3 months I heard that around 500 million children world wide are at risk due to malnutrition. The very reason is the unfair immoral inhuman capitalist system that has made the price of food to skyrocket for the sake of money capital wealth accumulation mainly driven by Ponzi-scheme of speculation manipulated by global market speculators. It is by very few global stock market speculators that the fate of billions poor peoples around the world is decides. So first they systematically plunder us and make us starved till death and when we are in a our last ghastly moments of death then thy come and throw us a penny from what they have already robbed us in advance and then thy claim they help as Look what is happening in Ethiopia. Yes the exporters like EFFORT takes away our organic healthy food for export and in return same exporters made us in return to import in-organic junk food and when we are ill due to this junk food then they also provide us junk medication. This is how the very few becomes richer and richer from time to time while to the contrary the mass becomes poorer and poorer. It is like a Zero-sum game. Look what is even happening in ECX(Ethiopian Commodity Exchange).ECX is indirectly the property of TPLF like EFFORT.ECX is starving and impoverishing the Ethiopian mass in order to make undeserved highest possible profit for the very few speculators and brokers who control the market under the disguise of export driven market. Recently I read some where that Alamudin told that one of the hotels in Dubai fully uses Ethiopian exported fruits and vegetables. Here locally the mass is malnutrition to death. To the contrary junk foods and expired foods with attractive coverage are made imported to feed the mass. Though TPLF claims that it advances and follows AGLI(Agriculturally Led Industry)what we see still today is starvation and donation in that still after 20 solid years we do not achieve food-security. TPLF is making its own dirty business and dirty politics on the rural farmer society.For the last 20 years TPLFites have been devouring the rural as well as the urban population. As long as such parasitic rent-seeking comprador elite is not toppled and perished how on earth the mass can get out of such severe impoverishment and misery? What we see as wealth creation in Ethiopia by few comprador parasitic rent seeking society, especially the TPLFites, is almost the result of the impoverishment and misery of the mass.I do not have that much trust that such financial institutions like Wolrd bank and IMF do any thing long-lasting good for the mass. They are rather the ones who have been creating havoc and misery in 3rd world nations. Recently the uprising in Nigeria was the result of direct IMF order to the then government to remove fuel subsidy. The mass got strong to revolt and then restored the situation to previous subsidy. Similarly World bank contributed such a great deal for the problems created regarding food-security in Ethiopia. The Bill gates foundation has also been working in Ethiopia as ‘philanthropy’ in order to disseminate GMO(Genetically Modifies Seed) in Ethiopia. The previous bio-diversity is gradually perishing like a Dinosaur and is being replaced by GMO. For some one who has the knowledge of GMO then it is not something obscure what sort of danger is lurking a head of us. The heinous clandestine motive behind the donation of such philanthropist is this.For every penny we receive today be it as donation or as loan it is expected that individually we shall not pay it back. But the entire nation and the coming generation will pay it back in its misery and impoverishment. When donor nations give us donation or loan they already know that we shall not pay them back for ever in cash. But their plan is to make us massively indebted and become their hostage slaves for ever so that we are not able to pay them back but they will take the nation in its entirety as their trophy. The problem with us is that we easily get lulled and cheated for every penny thrown to us and do not think farsightedly what we shall potentially loose in return for the future.
    The loan and donation is mainly intended to lull, bribe and trap the local comprador rent-seeking parasitic stooge client-regimes like TPLF. So the mutual symbiotic relation ship is mainly between the global capitalists system and the local national comprador rent-seeking parasitic stooge client-regimes like TPLF and associated elites. So the mass is just a miserable slave between the two symbiotic evils. So many intellectuals have missed the very insidious and clandestine intention and motive such amazing unrestrained loan and donation to 3rd world client-regime nations like TPLF despite the fact that such TPLF regimes are severely despotic and plundering. For TPLF and Global Capitalism the entire nation like us is not something worth to be properly ruled by good governance or democracy but rather it is such a huge market place as certain “black-box” entity to make business for profit as usual in its entirety.
    And hence though TPLF is claiming as AGLI, well indeed the motive behind AGLI is only to make business for TPLF. Who is provider of fertilizers for the farmers? Is it not TPLF-EFFORT? In order to get fertilizers the farmers are becoming political hostages for TPLF. And like wise when GMO is implemented in Ethiopia who is making business from it in importing the inevitable GMO related pesticides and seeds? Is it not EFFORT? With such chronic system how comes we are able to become food-secured? So the entire game during the last 20 solid years is economically how to make the usual game of dirty business on the entire nation in order to plunder and despoil it and politically like wise how to racially discriminate the mass and then make it hostile to each other for the sake of divide-and-rule so that the nation will eventually become a complete subservient hostage to local comprador elites as well as their MASTER global capitalists system. For me real help is to help others so that they can help themselves in the long run. To plunder and robe other in to massive impoverishment and then give back some penny for he sake survival is not a real help for me. Capitalism tries to be philanthropist in this regard in order to mask or camouflage its inherent evil inner workings. How can we get out of this perpetually devised insidious debt trap of Global Capitalism? Very vital question we have to ask and answer. How some one is critically ‘indebted’ in such perpetual debt trap can achieve real freedom and real democracy in the first place? If a nation is indebted like the way we see in Greek and other then it is like some terrorist is kidnapping or hijacking and is making you hostage so that you are entirely blackmailed to do what ever you are ordered to do so. Therefore, for the last 20 solid years of TPLF rule, who mainly benefited and to the opposite get hurt from loan and donation? TPLF and its closely working affiliated Global Capitalists system have got the main benefit. Who get lost and hurt is the majority mass. The problem with us is that we can easily and immediately see overtly the results of donations and loans manifested in the luxurious livelihoods of very few comprador elites. But we are blinded and failed to envisage the insidious damage covertly and gradually taking place against the “Common-Goods” in the big nation and its peoples in its entirety. Yes in return for such misleading donations and loans upon which very few parasitic societies benefit, then the mass have been systematically loosing its “Common-Goods” that are of very survival nature. Debt trap is the primary heinous inner workings and survival means of global Capitalism. And who is primarily benefited from such debt trap? TPLF and its affiliated global Capitalism.Who is a loser and sufferer of this sort of debt trap? The poor innocent MASS.
    As there is no such a thing as free lunch and hence there is no such a thing as philanthropy and donation, for that matter even real democracy, in the heydays era of global capitalism. So let’s no as such get lulled and mislead by donations and philanthropy. So finally I want to assert that please be aware that for every penny we receive as donation or loan let’s be wise and pragmatic what we are expected to give back in return either in kind or cash in the long term or the short term.

    There is only one thing that is so clear as to the contribution of weyanes to the Ethiopian people: shame, terror, shame, torture, and shame. It is so sad to witness Ethiopians to be at the mercy of Abebe/Legesse/Melesse and his boss Mebrahtu G/hiwot, but rest assured both will serve time in the same cell for all the crimes they have committed against Ethiopia and Ethiopians. The mini skirt of Susan Rice may not be big enough to hide both culprits!!!

    your banda sold out all Africa at the environmental meeting a couple of years ago. Your banda is the first, in the history of nations, to give away territory. Not only give away, the banda actually argued in defence of giving away territory. His plan backfired. The erits, after getting Assab, said thank you, but you are not one of us.
    Your banda was used like a condom and thrown away. If he is your leader then get ready to be used and discarded,

    Well said Girum,

    You seem to know really what is going on. I remember we used to say how notorious World Bank and IMF were on other countries and was so proud of Ethiopia that we are aware of this. Of course, TPLF is well aware of this scheme is making Ethiopia deliberately in debted. We are now swimming in the same situtation as other poor nations.
