    Unfortunately, this has got to be the weakest article I’ve read from an opposition supporter in a while. I think Andinet party deserves and should be capable of putting out better defenses than this. The writer advices of using logic, but seems to not employ a lot of it herself/himself. To be frank, even Elias Kifle, the man I believe is the main target of this article, seems to present his arguments better.

    I can’t even begin to count the logical error in the article, but I couldn’t help but burst into laughter when he/she compared Obama’s situation to Andinet’s.

    I just think that, as a principle, there is a whole lot wrong with putting such an article forward. I think its terrible that some web sites and blogs engage in defaming Andinet and its leadership. But guess what? There are always going to rotten apples in any society – even after independence. However, some of the arguments put forth by those people, such as that ‘peaceful struggle’ does not work in Ethiopia any more, need to be responded to with careful reasoning and not some generalized accusations of Ethiopian tradition for violence, and some ridiculous comparison of our situation with Obama’s election.

    I personally do not necessarily agree that peaceful struggle alone will be the answer to our current problems. What is at stake in Ethiopia right now is not just the issue of freedom and our country’s capacity to have a peaceful transition of power. What is at stake is the country’s very existence. People who advocate for peaceful struggle and peaceful struggle alone fail to understand the complexity of the matter and the dangerous situation our country is in at the moment. There are ethnic and religious ticking time bombs waiting to fly all over our faces, and the only thing the current regime is doing is put gas on the fire!!! There needs to be an army of some sort (and an agreement between powers that represent the different peoples of Ethiopia – the kind Gibot 7 is trying to facilitate) to protect the country from a purposely engineered disintengration should there be a power vacuum! And I am sorry to say but you will not be undertaking that kind of protective work with chants and poems!

    That being said, I do not agree with the Eliases and the likes that Andinet party should close shop and join the armed struggle or whatever. First of all, I think there are countless purposes Andinet party can achieve on the ground. If all goes well, and Ethiopia is freed from her current state, we will have a viable and organized party in Andinet. Secondly, for any purpose the armed groups and others like Ginbot 7 hope to achieve, the strong presence of Andinet on the ground is much help. Every time Andinet challenges the government with its expansion and other activities, it forces it to show more and more of its true colors which helps these groups make their case to Ethiopians and the international community. So, as long as there are people who are willing to go out and make sacrifices, Andinet should be encouraged to continue existing.

    So, its not one way or the other…its the concerted efforts in all directions that may bring us results. So, lets all take a chill pill. And lets learn to think politics…not be narrow minded and take everything at face value.

    I think the writer seems someone with a genuine concern and straight forward opinion. however, his article looks like emotionally forwarded. Some very general expressions/concepts such as the Diaspora and its franc/money, the country we say it has 3000 – year history(not using assertive statement),not using qualifying words like a few, a handful for those individuals or groups and other conceptual expressions should be taken as points to be taken into account.

    yes, thanks for point that out too, tg. You can’t make numerous travels to “explain your stand and solicit support from the Diaspora” on one hand and ridicule and tell them they don’t really have that big of a role on the other hand.

    And too many generalizations…in any case, we shall rise above all this bickering and set our eyes on the big picture.

    The article is an opinion of an individual, possible a member of the party and should not be taken as press release of the party. Second the party should not be shaken by individuals like Eliyas-the one man crusader who believe Shbiya support is the solution to Ethiopian problem.

    At the mean time Genbot 7 is not a political party but a movement, until it become a party and give us its alternative platform Andent is the way. Eleyas trying to dictate a party on a website through Shbiya sometimes sounds like a jock and I do not understand why people consider him a journalist to be interview by him. We have to raise the standard of journalism, party, movement and the rest. A vengeful individual like Elyas, groups like Woyane should not be dictating the future of Ethiopia.

    At the meantime the party has to take concrete steps to make TPLF submit to the will of the people of Ethiopia. The ruling government can not be allowed to dictate what needs to be done to make the country a representative democracy, a free market economy etc. It does not have the mandate, the good will nor the moral standing to represent the people of Ethiopia. The sooner that is clear to them the sooner we will have elected government. Their genocidal tendency should be told for the world so that they can be warned to consequences of their forced rule on Ethiopia.

    There is no way out for EPRDF/TPLF it will accept the rule of democracy or step aside. Peaceful struggle may look weak for some including TPLF itself who climbed to power by the barrel of a gun, but the end result is what matters. TPLF will submit like it or not, the bravado it is showing to hold on power through killing innocents and diverting accountablity again is a sign of weakness and wickedness like many before him. In this day in age no one will get away with murder and crime against humanity.

    I second tg,
    We need both ways to save our mother land from disintegration by which the deadly foe TLF and historical enemy EPLF have prepared for Ethiopia. The enemy has clearly told us that they have given the people of Ethiopia a 100 years home work. The home works of ethnicity, which make us, destroy one another and religious differences. The million dollar question for all Ethiopians despite their differences in Ethnicity, faith, which party we belong… is weather we could have the unity not to drink and die the sugar tainted poison waiting for us prepared by the well known enemies EPLF/TPLF. Yes in the 2005 election most Ethiopians as people have shown their ability to unite! Remember even our Ethiopians of Tigray origin have shown their unity to save their mother land Ethiopia from tyranny despite the unbearable pressure they experienced (ing even now). Despite the tyrannical brutal “Government” tries to trade on the people of Tigray. Yes the capacity is still there in this desperate situation. The solution is not only one way. Our “home work” given by the enemy is to complex, which include: bringing back our 1,600 Km long and up to 70Km width (in some places)land, which had been given to our neighbors. We have to restore our history, faith and unity by denying our deadliest enemy’s plans. We have to build our own army which includes all ethnicities; bring back the looted Ethiopian wealth ctc.
    Ye the answer is UNITY! We need both the peaceful and armed struggles to come out of this desperate but not dead condition.
    Ethiopia shall prevail!
    Thank you

    woyane is to blame for war between ethiopia and eritrea. down with woyane. the average tigrain didn’t benefit anything from weyane except we created lasting enemy with eritrea that is unrepared. after meles we, the tigrain people are finished. the ethiopian don’t accept us as ethiopian. the eritrean’t don’t want us. this is as result of meles our leader. we tigrain should stand againist meles and fight him.
