Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has confessed that the country’s US-backed troops have killed over 6,000 of Somali civilians.

The premier made the remarks on Thursday, saying that heavy clashes in Somalia caused the deaths and injuries of many civilians.

Earlier, Zenawi said that Ethiopian troops would leave Somalia on an urgent basis.

He mentioned two main reasons for the decision, the first one is lack of money and the second is lack of cooperation of the international community with the Ethiopian troops in operations in Somalia, a Press TV correspondent reported. (more…)

Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has confessed that the country’s US-backed troops have killed over 6,000 of Somali civilians.

The premier made the remarks on Thursday, saying that heavy clashes in Somalia caused the deaths and injuries of many civilians.

Earlier, Zenawi said that Ethiopian troops would leave Somalia on an urgent basis.

He mentioned two main reasons for the decision, the first one is lack of money and the second is lack of cooperation of the international community with the Ethiopian troops in operations in Somalia, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Zenawi also said the conflict between Somali President Abdullahi Yusuf and Prime Minister Nur Hassan Hussein was because of the clan fighting as the premier is from powerful clan of Hawiye and the president is from the second largest clan in Somalia.

Somalia has been without an effective central government since President Siad Barre was overthrown in 1991. In 2006, US-backed Ethiopian troops invaded the country in an attempt to back Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government.

Fighting between Ethiopian-backed government forces and insurgents has displaced more than a million people.

It’s a win win .Guys if you remember before 1991 this two terrorist group were helping each other and fight against real Ethiopians. They washed their hand with incent Ethiopians blood .Thanks god, now they are killing each other. I wish this war to continue the next hundred years. Anyway some ignorant Ethiopians asking fascist meles zanawe to bring (the troop back home) which troop you talking about you stupid mother fcuker. Those fascist agzi who kill millions incent Ethiopians? Are you crazy? Late them burn in hell. I only feel sorry for those who unwillingly join fascist meles zanawe army (agzi). All you ignorant out their if you like to see fascist meles zanawe army (agzi) gust invite them in your own house late them rape and kill you that is not my business. I am happy to see that anyway.

    Dear Netters,
    I am against the Meles war in Somalia. I am equally against the Iranian propaganda machine full of lies. Please do not publish some medias such as Press TV as source of information.

    Like he didn’t roam around in the streets of Mogadishou, and never had chatted with locals, and never had mingled with marketers and buyers in that croweded market and never had sat down with groups and members of anti-Ethiopia organizations founded by shabya agents and tplf robbers, and never, like ever had planned to harm Ethiopia, and like he had never filled up his mouth with Khat and had never sipped tea, and never ate rice and fish, and subsquently, like he had never promised to hand out their shares of a part of Ethiopia, Meles Naziawi sent his woyanaetplf troops into somalia and killed many people and destroyed a large amount of properties.

    Alas, now, he is telling the global community that he would bring his murderous woayanattplf troops out of somalia into Ethiopia because, he said “No money and no cooperation.”

    Well,sooner or later he and his killer woyanaetplf troops will meet their unfortunate fate in Ethiopia too. Then what would he say to the global community when his bad time is coming and when forced to leave Ethiopia?

    Ethiopians don’t care what he would say but would do every possible meanse to remove this anti-Ethiopia and bad element and his distructive troops from Ethiopia and send them back to where they started their anti-Ethiopia distructive activities.

    Meles Naziawi, by virtue of his nature is a coward,a murderer, and now a multi-millionaire drenched in blood and filled with sins and crimes.

    He had a good memory with shabya leader Iaias Afework while they were inseparable doing anti-Ethiopia distructive activities while they were fugitives; of course, they still are, today.

    Isaias Afework did what he could do to humilate and defeat Meles Naziawi and his killer troops in Somalia. If there is one thing that Isaias Afework happy about is that woyanaetoplf troops are forced to leave Somalia. Good for shabya and bad for tplfwoyanae.

    What next? Will there be a battle between Isaias’s 4,000,000 combat ready troops and Meles Naziawi’s woyanaetplf troops that have been hidden in Tigraye for the past 17 years, being well-fed, well-trained, and well-equipped ready to march into the streets of Asmara.

    This time, when the most awaited battle is started, anything can happen including the outbreak of street fights between tplfwoyanae and shabya combatants, not in Mogadishou, not in Badmae or anywher else but in the streets of Asmara because that has been Meles Naziawi planned for the final, a tooth and nail and make or break final and binding fight that indeed, if Meles Naziawi manages to topple the shabya leadership and instead, put in place his own agents as a new leadership, it is not going be bad only for Afeworki, it is going to be worse for Ethiopia because,he is going to be controlling Ethiopia right from Asmara for many years to come.

    The most burning question is,of course, there will be a mismatch between shaya troops and woyanaetplf troops, but there is going to be a final and binding fight in the streets of Asmara for a final victory either for shabya or woyanaetplf. Will Afeworki carry a gun and fight the tplfwoyane soldiers in the street of Asmara? or will he flight?

    Meles Naziawi has had one goal in mind, eventually; that is to send troops into Asmara and capture Afeworki, but has Afeworki been aware of Melese’s motives and moves? probably,yes. If that’s so,will he send his millions men and women combat ready drafts and volunteers and his standing-army into Ethiopia and topple Meles Naziawi and his bad regime before bad thing happen to him?

    HI ZORA,

    WHY THE INSULT? CAN’T YOU SIMPLY CHALLENGE THE SCENARIO THAT ATUBA HAS PLAUSIBLY PAINTED WITH AN ALTERNATIVE SCENARIO? ARE YOU REASONABLE ENOUGH TO DO JUST THAT? DO YOU HAVE THE GOOD ARGUMENTS? CAN YOU ARGUE PERSUASIVELY AND SENSIBLY? IF SO,LET US PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR ARGUMENTS.IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOU MAY CONVINCE US.YOU MAY WIN US TO YOUR SIDE.

    IF HOWEVER YOU RESORT TO INSULT,THAT WOULD ONLY SHOW THE WEAKNESS OF YOUR POSITION AND NOT YOUR STRENGTH.

    YOU KNOW,THIS DOES NOT JUST APPLY TO YOU ALONE,ZORA.IT ALSO APPLIES TO EVERY OTHER TPLF ZEALOT VEHEMENTLY REACTING TO THE CRITICS OF THE REGIME.
    ISN’T IT A BIG SHAME THAT THE LEXICON OF THESE TPLF ZEALOTS IS LIMITED TO SOME INCOMPREHENSIBLES MIXED WITH SOME INSULTS LIKE’..KKKKKK..KIKI KIKI..BLA BLA..MALARIA HEAD (sic!)..DEDEB..’?
