A timeline of global conspiracy to weaken Ethiopia and save the terrorist clique in Tigray


Both in its internal structure and external manifestation, Terrorist TPLF was founded on relief aid food which it has snatched from the people of Tigray and some gifts of armaments from EPLF back in February 1975. The ideological foundation of the group is based on petti-bourgeoisie ethnic nationalism blended with Marxist Leninist Mao Zedong and Enver Hoxha Though and irredentist Nazi type Greater Tigray dream which denies and rejects Ethiopia and Ethiopianism and therefore Pan Africanism.

Although the TPLF was founded as a liberation front, it has never depended on its own resources as an organization and always existed as a parasitic war mongering clique. It bragged and boasted of “culture of war making” It kept the people of Tigray in bondage for more than 4 decades through false propaganda of a pie in the sky or a nirvana of a region of honey and milk.

Today, what the world observes is a grim reality of the reign of terror and massacre of thousands in Amhara and Afar and the extermination of close to a million youth in the name of liberation. This terrorist group claims to follow the ideology of revolutionary democracy but in content the practical ideology of this terrorist group is another brand of Pol Potisim or Khmer Rougesim which is a totalitarian ideology of the far left, ethno-ultranationalist, anti-intellectualism, anti-education, highly genocidal ideology that lives by shedding blood.

Recently the terrorist group declared that it would accept the negotiation with the Federal Government of Ethiopia with no preconditions and started attacks on the ENDF the next day trying to cheat the western countries who were calling for ceasefire and negotiation in a bid to save it from the wrath of the people of Ethiopia including citizens in Tigray.

Terrorist TPLF now is not a legal representative of the people of Tigray because it usurped power through an illegal election. Even then, despite the call for negotiations by the AU and in spite of the fact that both the Federal Government and the terrorist group have given their consent for negotiations, the group has called upon the entire population of Tigray to march to the battle front to defend them in the name of defending the region.

The terrorist group is doing this to try to accuse the ENDF and the government on genocide. The fourth round of war was staged as part of the global conspiracy on Ethiopia in which the neighboring countries of Sudan and Egypt are busy arming and training the Samri group in collaboration with another country in East Africa.

The author of this article would like to show the reader the trends of events in the conspiracy against the people and The Federal Government of Ethiopia. On Tuesday, 2nd August 2022, the respective EU and US Special Envoys for the Horn of Africa, H.E. Annette Weber and H.E. Mike Hammer and US Embassy Charge travelled on their first joint mission to Mekelle, Tigray, to encourage the launch of talks between the Federal Government of Ethiopia (FGoE) and the terrorist group in Tigray under the auspices of African Union. Contrary to their main mission of attempting to facilitate the negotiation between them.

To the contrary, The Envoys agreed that a swift restoration of electricity, telecom, banking, and other basic services in Tigray is essential for the people of Tigray. This indeed was not in their jurisdtion as this is what the Federal Government is tasked to do. Regarding this, Redwan Hussein, national security advisor to the PM, complained that the special envoys are entertaining terrorist TPLF’s interests. “They [the special envoys] failed to press for unequivocal commitment for peace talks, rather indulging in appeasement and fulfilling preconditions placed by the other party [TPLF],” tweeted the ambassador on the 5th of August 2022.

It is to be noted that right after the visit accompanied with a selfie with the members of the terrorist group. On August 3, 2022, US Special Representative told the media that he has observed preparations were underway by Terrorist TPLF to wage a third round of war on the people and Government of Ethiopia.

On October 4, 2022, the European Parliament passed a resolution entitled “European Parliament resolution on the recent humanitarian and human rights situation in Tigray, Ethiopia, notably that of children.” As usual, EU has ignored the crimes that Terrorist TPLF has committed in Amhara and Afar in its Resolution with a vested interest only on Tigray.

Item 20 of the Resolution read “20. Reiterates its call on the Ethiopian government to sign and ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court; stresses the need for an independent and impartial mechanism to address ongoing violations and accountability;”

This Resolution is meant to set a legal ground to incriminate the Government of Ethiopia. It is interesting to note that even the major powers of the world are not signatory to this law.

Item 25 of the Resolution also states that it “Supports the Commission’s postponement of budget support disbursements to the Ethiopian government since December 2020; calls on the Commission to continue its life-saving support for the region aimed at civil society and independent humanitarian organizations, and to step up its efforts to ensure the safety of children; calls on the Commission to reconsider its limitation of budget support to implementing measures in order to allow the continued implementation of development projects outside the conflict zone”. The continuation of sanctions on Ethiopia is therefore another vivid attempt to pressurize and economically weaken Ethiopia so that the country will depend on western aid program.

 On October 5, the Ethiopian Federal Government and the rebel group in Tigray accepted negotiations under the auspices of AU led negotiation. October 5, EU parliament passed a resolution on the situation in Tigray

Furthermore, on August 6,2022, The African Union Political Affairs, Peace and Security (PAPS) has reached an agreement to accommodate the UN, EU and the US to be part of the AU’s team designated to broker peace between the federal government of Ethiopia and the terrorist TPLF. The announcement came after the AU Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) decided to “build on the momentum for a negotiated peace in Ethiopia.”

Rejecting the AU-led peace negotiations, the TPLF called for Western intervention in Ethiopia before resuming the war on August 24 by invading Kobo and rejecting the credibility of AU to conduct negotiations. This ended the five-month long truce with Ethiopia’s federal government, weeks after envoys from the US and EU visited Mekele.

Consequently, on October 7, 2022, in a resolution on the situation of human rights in Ethiopia, the UNHRC decided to renew the mandate of the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia for a further period of one year. It is to be recalled that almost all African countries and several European countries including Denmark rejected the extension and the report from the Team of Experts which came up with the worst investigative report which was not only inadequate but also professionally void.

On October 1, 2022 Kenya’s former President, Uhuru Kenyatta said he has accepted the invitation from AU to preside over the negotiation between the FGoE but changed his mind on October 7, 2022 that he will skip the scheduled peace talks between the Ethiopian Government and rebel group Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), citing “conflicts in my schedule.”

In another development, Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa (SEHOA) Mike Hammer will travel to Kenya, South Africa, and Ethiopia October 3-18, 2022. Special Envoy Hammer is returning to the region as part of ongoing U.S. diplomatic efforts to achieve an immediate cessation of hostilities in northern Ethiopia and support the launch of African Union-led peace talks.

While all this network of conspiracy was being hatched, On the 10th of October in total rejection of the AU coordination, the terrorist group declared an all out war against the people and Government of Ethiopia by calling upon all Tigrayan citizens to go to the battle front.

On October 7, 2022, reporting from Kyiv Reuters stated that, A fifth vessel chartered by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) has left Ukraine’s Black Sea port of Chornomorsk and will deliver 30,000 tones of Ukrainian wheat to Ethiopia, Ukraine’s infrastructure ministry said on Friday.

Earlier over the year, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has said that Ethiopia did not demand any relief aid support of wheat and indicated that the shipments were meant to discredit Ethiopia’s efforts to be self sufficient in food and that the nation is still full of hungry people. Ethiopia is expecting a bumper harvest of wheat which she would export to neighboring Kenya.

According to world wheat market source Ethiopia is ranked first in wheat production in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) followed by South Africa [3]. However, its average productivity of 2.4 t ha−1 is lower than 6.7, 3.5, and 3.0 t ha−1 reported in Egypt, South Africa, and Kenya, respectively. The reader can see how the western media works on discrediting Ethiopia’s efforts by focusing on productivity of wheat while the main issue is the volume of production of wheat at the national level.

It certainly appears that the EU is the now the leading the global conspiracy on Ethiopia on behalf of the western powers. All the meetings, resolutions and diplomatic maneuvers here and there are targeting the nascent democracy in Ethiopia that is already entangled with unprecedented internal and external multi-faceted challenges.

Sudan and Egypt are already busy providing logistics, training and financial support for terrorist TPLF on its 4th round of war on Ethiopia as part of the global conspiracy to weaken, dwarf and humiliate Ethiopia on every area they find at their disposal including economic, political propaganda campaign on the country to save a terrorist organization that has continued to enslave 6 million citizens in Tigray.
