    Well. economy progress can implemented the real equality. personal or as a nation. aid is the worst disaster of human freedom psychologically, westerns aid is dominating national dignity of the countries. indirectly it’s the modern slavery/colonialism, if Ethiopians economy is going well for the next decade. some pro-NGO. inHUMFN-Rgihts. CPJ can’t comment in internal politics like currently in China,. Singapore, India…….. generally western can’t order to free or to detain in our internal issue. that’s the right freedom by reducing poverty. while Gulfs killing thousands they criticise Ethiopia for one jailed terrorist. and when detained tens thousands in their backyard they concern about the poor countries like Ethiopia. so Ethiopians include oppositions should aware for our beloved country which is the final our destination the homeland of our families….

    Singapore is one of the richest country in the World with least unemployment level .It has achieved this standard by adopting developmental state approach as our government does but with a single big difference.That is the corruption level,Singapore is one of the very few countries in the World with least corruption but our country is running at high speed in corruption to catch up with most corrupt countries in Africa . Illicit financial outflows increased 3000% from 2003 to 2012. This is very alarming . http://www.gfintegrity.org/issues/data-by-country/
    Second generation /young TPLF/EPRDF members should strive to surmount this big challenge before it eats up the country .

    awrambatimes-tigrai based website is taking about the Ethiopian economic growth ( not development ) which failed to bring any change on the life of the ordinary people while the world is discussing about the journalists and bloggers which released from prison because of “OBAMA’S EFFECT”.

    No bad feelings towards Mr. Guang Z. Chen.

    But the bank he is representing in the name of “world Bank” is the greatest criminal institute that has been affecting the so called poor/third world nations ever since its creation almost 70 years ago. It was created to build Europe that was destroyed by itself because of conflicts caused by disagreements between western Europeans for having the private ownership biggest share from the rest of the world in the name of slavery and colonization.

    Slavery was officially abolished in 1882 when Brazil forced to stop the brutally, longest and biggest slavery empire in the world where the whole process from its source in Africa to its hell destiny in the Americans was monopolized by enlarge by the Jews. The Jews were operating the slave trade and Transportation for 300 years that made them richer and gave them the knowledge of having companies, doing business, conduction international (trade) and being influential and powerful playing against all aspects of lives in the society and nations they were/are living using money.

    Slavery was not only benefited them at that time but also making them till these days able to control the whole developed and none developed world in many ways including in banking, finance, trade, media, politics and almost everything associating with humanity by having comfortable strategy bases in US, UK, France, IMF, WB, UN, EU and other western nations and institutions that are there including in the name of the world or international.

    When Germany was created in 1877, it was a weak and fragmented society. This became the best opportunities for the Jews that were dominating Germany using the huge money and wealth coming from the Slave trade (which was the first international trade happened using humans as products) and huge profit from the free slave labor in the occupied continents mainly the Americans and Asia such as the south Asia sub continent together with India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

    However, the officially abolition of slavery became the worst disaster to them. As a result they came up with another idea which is occupying the African continent, make the people continuing being as their private properties and make them work for free and loot the continent. Some People still don’t know why the Scramble of Africa was organized and decided in Berlin in 1884 which is two years after the abolition of slavery despite Germany was a new 7 years old nation.
    Because during that time (till 1930s) Germany was controlled by the Jews and they were the biggest losers from the abolition of slavery. And they wanted another way to do the same thing against blacks including in Africa targeting the continent itself.
    (Read there are lots of books, student materials and articles about these and other issues related to slavery and colonization on one side and them on the other including in Portuguese and Spanish languages)

    However, Germany left out or got very small shares from the scramble of Africa despite it was organized there. That made the ordinary German citizens angry (which was a normal human being behavior during that time in Europe-being left out from the colonial and slavery huge free feast) and later on became the cause of the so called the first and Second World Wars. Particularly the Second World War was targeting those the German people were thinking the greatest dangers within.

    Ever since the end of the war, Germany became the peaceful and most prosper own nation. Germany didn’t invade any nation for the last 70 years while did cause many wars within 50 years (1877-1939) her creation including two second world wars. On the other hand USA together with England and France are causing wars after wars, destructions, coups, invasions, occupations, mass migration that is currently 55 million worldwide where 90% are Muslims, lots of crimes within, millions of prisoners, homelessness, desperations, police brutalities, huge gap between the few have everything and the mass have nothing, financial terrorism including in Latin America and south east Asia financial crises for decades in the last century using their financial terrorist organizations like IMF and WB.

    Learn more from the Korean financial crises caused by WB and the 1990s in Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and so on. Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina(including today) and many more Latin American nations financial crisis in the second half of the 20th century.

    Why is those things are happening in these and other western nations but Germany is in the better positions unlike it was before 1939? The answer is clear. who is controlling today these nations in many ways including the USA Dollar that is printed like cheap mass products by private money printing company where the US government has to borrow it with high interest rate in order to get it, banks, Finance, stock exchanges, insurance, trade, politics including in the name of lobbying which is a legally recognized corruption system operating on the highest scales and of course the evil western corporate medias?

    World Bank and particularly IMF are the two greatest dangerous weapons the imperialists are using them to destroy the rest of the weak and poor nations with mass destruction weapon stile affecting the society not only materially but also mentally and socially as we are witnessing in Greeks today. Imagine how worst they could get when they are getting chances to terrorize and control other nations beyond Europe in the form of debt particularly Africa they have enslaved and colonized them for centuries?

    IMF is a financial terrorist organization operating freely and legally causing so many damages against the third world citizens for decades pretending they are there helping which is part of the mental game they are using alongside corrupting the officials in order to work for them as agents implementing the IMF and WB policies against own nations interest for very damaging prospects. Look at Greek in Europe, member of EU and part of the Euro.
    and imagine how bad it could get if/when it happens in Africa including Ethiopia they are keeping targeting the most including using their evil corporate Jews monopolized Medias from USA, UK, France, Canada, Australia and so on spreading lies after lies with goals intentionally damaging the nation image as they are doing from the start for decades bringing the very old stories, magnifying them with millions times making them worse than they were and presenting them as if they are there today, too and discrediting the nation achievements thinking this way Ethiopians will lose hope and themselves by allowing the evil foreigners like them to own their nation in the name of investment and privatization they have kept her independent for more than 3000 years paying lots of sacrifices.

    Anything these Jews owned corporate Medias painting about Ethiopia has to be always about privatization…. and discrediting the nation achievements and the people abilities running their own national matters which are their only hope attacking weapons in order to get the nation under their ownership to do the same thing against the people and nations in Africa the same things they were doing during the slavery and colonization time with different approaches.

    The nations in Asia, Africa and elsewhere, don’t need IMF and WB at all but totally rejecting them knowing today’s money including so called hard currencies are valueless and their service is cheaper than toilet papers. Paper Money with no having the equivalent values in it is not creating any economy because of it is valueless to start with. Money is like any other product created by human skills. Money is like any other product part of the economy; not something creates the economy by itself.

    For these reasons, Ethiopians must not think that any debt foreign money would create and improve their economy but the human knowledge, skills and unlimited efforts doing the right things the right ways are the main ingredients creating products and use values including printing own money and managing it the best ways based on the inflation and deflations circumstances. Wise leaders will no more lending money from the foreign financial terrorist organizations that are terrorizing the society (using the mass production toilet paper money while calling it hard currencies because of it is from them and they are calling it despite it is the same as any nation currency which is valueless because of it has no converted value in it) such as IMF but hiring innocent and honest highly skilled and hard working foreigners that are in lines with the nation own type of development activities and distribution of wealth while keeping the society morally human.

    Own efforts including creating quality, quantity and variety products on time in all economic activities is the only way to have a stable and sustainable economy with no fret and uncertainty coming from abroad because of the loans that are looking like coming from IMF and WB types. using own internal financial sources and resources in order to facilitate the economy that is relaying on creating agriculture and industrial productions with balanced service activities are the only fundamental national financial systems working perfectly by guaranteeing the strong society foundation and economic systems and strong and continuity development activities in the country.

    The Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians and other nations from Asia knowledge, experience and support is more than enough to be able to develop the best ways rather than allowing own self to be enslaved and colonized the first time ever in the name of foreign financing coming from them where IMF, WB, WTO, Anglo-American/jaws banks, finance, stock exchanges and the likes accompanied by their evil corporate medias monopolized by the few/Jews are playing the damaging roles.

    As long as it is not converted with gold, energy KW or other use values, all currencies in the world are equal which is worthless piece of papers. Therefore, instead of selling the nation and its citizens for the sake of getting the valueless hard currencies in the name of debt, it is the only choice creating use values by own efforts in the country which are the agriculture and industrial productions, constructions and delivering the right services.

    Financing from abroad using the valueless foreign money in the form of debit is the worst type of suicide mission the nation is doing. Look at Greek. To avoid that, you have to be totally ready and capable and committed creating own economy by own efforts using domestic financial resources while working together with the best nations that are plenty these days like China, Russia, Japan, Korea, India, Italy, Germany and so on. Foreign money which is a valueless paper is not bringing anything in the country but foreign skilled workers and professionals.

    That means first you have to clean the nation from the dishonest, mischief, liars, dangerous and dirty pure criminals that are there for decades in the name of aid, Charities, NGO, Foundations, organizations and above all the western evil corporate medias run by so called Journalists which is a big lie working for their agenda and plan in our country. And instead bring the innocent and honest highly skilled and hard working foreigners from abroad including Europe for knowledge transfer and best development strategy achievements in the long run without exposing the nation to the IMF types of foreign Debt or bad investments because of they are coming with dirty worthless money they are getting illegally doing illegal activities including their banks and all other financial activities.

    Death to the IMF and WB type of foreign debt, financial advice and political and social interference which are the cause of troubles in the world ever since these two are created for one and the same goal working for those created and still are running them. IMF and WB presidents are always coming from US and EU. Why?

    But their names are caring International and world which is the tactic to trap the world for milking, exploiting and destroying it as it is the case for the last 70 years. Who is controlling them including anything related to the UN? Those controlling Wall Street and London financial district together from the institution of the white house/capital hill and waste (west) Minister are behind owning them as private property using them working for them.

    @ billfree,
    No matter where ever it bases, the most important thing is the credibility of the media outlet. It is only your tribal chauvinistic is killing you. your are still dealing with the old mentality of gone feudal s. please wake up an try catch up. you are too late. Just try to coup up with time.

    It fails to bring change on the life of ordinary people, I think you are supposed to be one of the one from esat or G7, which change means for them is, bombing, killing, tribal conflict extra which they have worked hard to bring this all to the country but the have failed. When you come the real change which our people want is, which is already happening in Ethiopia.

    1. Poverty have reduced from 40% – 26% in the past 10 years.
    2. Thousands of people have changed their life by the small business enterprise program.
    3. Thousands have got job Opportunity, due to the emerging of direct investment.
    and soon.
    your confusion starts from the definition of all about growth and the change expected following to it. This all. I think you are mentally sick,so It is better for you to go & see doctor. Then, you can continue with forum,otherwise get out of this,because You don’t real deserve to be in this forum.

    Dear billfree, you tried to lecture us what the welfare receivers told us before. Please come up with the reality in the ground. There is no place for those who don’t believe in multi ethnic groups in Ethiopia one more thing you should not be jealous of what the E PRDF government accomplished in. I can tell you for sure that most opposition in diaspora are jealous of every thing what the government done for the country which they can’t do anything about it other than dreaming.

    If still there is anyone in any place thinking the World Bank, IMF, UN and the Likes are serving the world interest, that person must be dumb and stupid. The Jews are using all sorts of misleading names, tactics and methods in order to control the world for their interest including in the name of WB, IMF, UN and so on.

    All USA , UK, Australia, France and Canada Big banks, financial markets, stock exchanges, Corporate medias, super markets, and other lucrative financial sources are directly owned and controlled by them. USA politics including all the foreign ministry activities are occupied and controlled by them.
    Obama is not a USA president but their remote control working for their agenda and interest not only in USA but also all over the world. They are using him to destroy the Middle East which is almost done successfully as they were planned for decades. The next move is going to be destroying Africa before he left office at least he had to lay the ground for next president to destroy it.

    Rothschild families are the Jews families participates in the slave trade, colonization, looting, all wars in Europe and North America since the 16 century and still are controlling the banks, economy and politics together with other Jews from USA, UK, France and all over the west. But they are doing all these hiding behind the white people in order to avoid the blame including about slavery and colonization. The vast majority white people are innocent from any bad things done by white people but the worst and longest victims of these evils including about slavery, colonization and other troubles happened against blacks in the name of white people.
    They destroyed the white people culture and normal human behaviors including through gay and lesbian behavior. They are now doing the same thing in Africa where their evil Medias and devil Journalists are spreading propaganda about including those Jew journalists in Ethiopia.

    Good God protect my beloved country and innocent people from these evils.

    The Rothschilds & The Civil War
    Excerpted From ‘Descent Into Slavery’
    By Des Griffin
    Chapter Five

    It would be extraordinarily naive to even consider the possibility that a family as ambitious, as cunning and as monopolistically minded as the Rothschilds could resist the temptation of becoming heavily involved on the American front.

    Following their conquest of Europe early in the 1800s, the Rothschilds cast their covetous eyes on the most precious gem of them all — the United States.

    America was unique in modern history. It was only the second nation in history that had ever been formed with the Bible as its law book. Its uniquely magnificent Constitution was specifically designed to limit the power of government and to keep its citizens free and prosperous. Its citizens were basically industrious immigrants who ‘yearned to breath free’ and who asked nothing more than to be given the opportunity to live and work in such a wonderfully stimulating environment.

    The results — the ‘fruit’ — of such a unique experiment were so indescribably brilliant that America became a legend around the globe. Many millions across the far flung continents of the world viewed America the Beautiful as the promised land.

    The Big Bankers in Europe — the Rothschilds and their cohorts — viewed the wonderful results borne by this unique experiment from an entirely different perspective; they looked upon it as a major threat to their future plans.

    The establishment Times of London stated: “If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North American Republic [i.e. honest Constitutionally authorized no debt money] should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without a debt [to the international bankers]. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

    The Rothschilds and their friends sent in their financial termites to destroy America because it was becoming “prosperous beyond precedent.”

    The first documentable evidence of Rothschild involvement in the financial affairs of the United States came in the late 1820s and early 1830s when the family, through their agent Nicholas Biddie, fought to defeat Andrew Jackson’s move to curtail the international bankers. The Rothschilds lost the first round when in 1832, President Jackson vetoed the move to renew the charter of the ‘Bank of the United States’ (a central bank controlled by the international bankers). In 1836 the bank went out of business.

    PLAN OF DESTRUCTION

    In the years following Independence, a close business relationship had developed between the cotton growing aristocracy in the South and the cotton manufacturers in England. The European bankers decided that this business connection was America’s Achilles Heel, the door through which the young American Republic could be successfully attacked and overcome.

    The Illustrated University History, 1878, p. 504, tells us that the southern states swarmed with British agents. These conspired with local politicians to work against the best interests of the United States. Their carefully sown and nurtured propaganda developed into open rebellion and resulted in the secession of South Carolina on December 29, 1860. Within weeks another six states joined the conspiracy against the Union, and broke away to form the Confederate States of America, with Jefferson Davis as President.

    The plotters raided armies, seized forts, arsenals, mints and other Union property. Even members of President Buchanan’s Cabinet conspired to destroy the Union by damaging the public credit and working to bankrupt the nation. Buchanan claimed to deplore secession but took no steps to check it, even when a U.S. ship was fired upon by South Carolina shore batteries.

    Shortly thereafter Abraham Lincoln became President, being inaugurated on March 4, 1861. Lincoln immediately ordered a blockade on Southern ports, to cut off supplies that were pouring in from Europe. The ‘official’ date for the start of the Civil War is given as April 12, 1861, when Fort Sumter in South Carolina was bombarded by the Confederates, but it obviously began at a much earlier date.

    In December, 1861, large numbers of European Troops (British, French and Spanish) poured into Mexico in defiance of the Monroe Doctrine. This, together with widespread European aid to the Confederacy strongly indicated that the Crown was preparing to enter the war. The outlook for the North, and the future of the Union, was bleak indeed.

    CZAR ALEXANDER II

    In this hour of extreme crisis, Lincoln appealed to the Crown’s perennial enemy, Russia, for assistance. When the envelope containing Lincoln’s urgent appeal was given to Czar Alexander II, he weighed it unopened in his hand and stated: “Before we open this paper or know its contents, we grant any request it may contain.”

    Unannounced, a Russian fleet under Admiral Liviski, steamed into New York harbor on September 24, 1863, and anchored there, The Russian Pacific fleet, under Admiral Popov, arrived in San Francisco on October 12. Of this Russian act, Gideon Wells said: “They arrived at the high tide of the Confederacy and the low tide of the North, causing England and France to hesitate long enough to turn the tide for the North” (Empire of “The City,” p. 90).

    History reveals that the Rothschilds were heavily involved in financing both sides in the Civil War.

    Lincoln put a damper on their activities when, in 1862 and 1863, he refused to pay the exorbitant rates of interest demanded by the Rothschilds and issued constitutionally-authorized, interest free United States notes.

    For this and other acts of patriotism Lincoln was shot down in cold-blood by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865, just five days after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.

    Scene of famine in Ethiopia =BBC, Andrew harding
    Face of Ethiopian famine says Live Aid has done nothing =Guardian

    And many more so called news/articles are all over today coming from the English establishment and evil Jews Owned corporate medias from England, USA, Canada and Australia. They are busy today with these kind news as usual with aim to discredit Ethiopia because of they know today is a big international meeting there.

    The questions is what is wrong with Ethiopians continuing toleration the evil Jews that are coming up and working tirelessly about anything bad to affect Ethiopia including them being in the country. More than 99% of all media wars and foreign political interference against Ethiopia since the last 30 years and particularly since the last 24 years is conducted by the Jew from England, USA and France and their English establishment backers marriage of benefit for more than 500 years.

    Almost all so called journalists working for the Jews owned corporate Medias and English establishment criminals including BBC in Ethiopia or against Ethiopia are the Jews. The so called scholars doing the same thing against Ethiopia from England, USA, France and so on are by far the Jews.

    For how long are we allowing these internationally known evils continuing affecting us with goal to destroy our society in many ways as they did to the white people thinking this will make them able to own the nation in the form of investment, privatization trade and consumerism.

    As long as Ethiopia and Africa in general are not dealing with the English, USA, Canada, France and other nations war against them where the Jews are taking the lead always coming up with new damaging ideas and strategies how to achieve them in Africa as they did during slavery and colonization, we are doing nothing good but walking strait directly towards the Jews plan of hell against us and the whole of Africa.

    Thanks to Obama, they already destroyed the ME. The Middle East is gone forever making itself fighting and destroying while they are selling weapons and inflaming the situation for the sake of greater Israel. There is no doubt; their next agenda is going to Africa. The next 17 months Obama presidency is going to serve them able to destroy Africa including in the form of agreements with the dumb head and corrupted Africans doing the preparation jobs for the next US president to destroy it.

    Bush started it and Obama who is the Jews project finished the job in the Middle East according to their plan. Syria and Yemen are the oldest nations with more than 3000 years old history. Thanks to the Jews project, Obama managed to destroy the oldest human civilization and treasuries in these two nations. The Jew monopolized USA foreign policy and ministry and corporate medias are not even talking about the destruction and suffering of 17 million Yemenis where bombs are raining on them daily for more than 100 days.

    Yet, these evil Jew corporate Medias and evil journalists are having time to talk about their fictional creation famine story in Ethiopia 30 years ago that made them sing and dance in front of the world from happiness in London. Because of these days is happening an international big meeting in Ethiopia and they have to find something to make Ethiopia down including the famine 30 years ago. The Jews are pure evils particularly those from UK, USA, France< England and Australia engaging with corporate medias, banking sectors, financial activities, bad investment/companies, stock exchanges and politics particularly foreign ministry, defense and foreign spay agencies where they are almost in control.

    Big sorry to the vast majority white people that are the worst and longest victim of these evil people and getting the blames for the crimes these evils are doing all over the world including slavery, colonialism, invasion, occupation, wars, lootings and racism.

    Everyone knows the difference between lying and telling the truth. But lying, when done under oath, constitutes perjury. Day in and day out, week in and week out, Ethiopian officials and its Communist media have been busy telling the world that the Communist EPRDF Govt has been registering a double digit growth over the last decade, just shy of the sky high 12% and has reduced inflation to a single digit figure. But what we heard here flies in the face of that fabrication as the World Bank cleared the air saying that it was inflation that was actually in double digits and the economic growth has been about 8 or 9%, and the Bank projects this growth at 8 or 9% to continue over the next 5 years; provided that oil prices continue at a historic low as they are right now and other economic determinants remain as hoped. The World Bank also noted that there was a continued declining of Ethiopia’s export for the last 9 months, which is another setback to the economy. Treasury sources hinted that the Authorities had diverted massive load of resources from the export-promotion program into poverty-reduction program in an effort to buy votes, bringing the nation’s export to its knees. In the recently tabled Annual Budget for Ethiopian Fiscal Year 2008, it was indicated that the Govt expects the deficit to be about 3% of the budget, though Treasury sources actually admit that the figure could go as high as 20%. This was on top of the 35% that Ethiopia already expects to receive from donors and creditors in Annual Budget Supplement; and it is clear that gross deficit spending is here to stay. Heavily borrowing and spending might give a false impression of an exponential economic boom, but the country needs to remind itself that engaging in a skyrocketing spending spree of money that it didn’t actually have is going to be excruciatingly hurting down the road. According to the World Bank and IMF, Ethiopia’s Debt to GDP ratio for the fiscal year 2015 was about 23.4%. Considering the fact that Ethiopia currently earmarks about 40% of its annual budget to servicing foreign debt, which just keeps going way north at an alarming rate, it was only a matter of time before the nation’s public debt becomes not only a heavy burden that hangs on the neck of the Ethiopian economy, but also a brake that brings it to a complete halt. We may need to admit that the nation’s economic future could be brighter depending on what choices our people and their rulers make. Ethiopia’s development partners, as frustrated as they could be, have been relentlessly helping in seeking to break the nation’s chronic cycle of dependence that AID created by lending a hand to help the country build its own institutions and capacity to deliver essential services. This actually remains far more easier said than done as Ethiopia’s Communist rulers want an economic liberty but not democratic liberty. ‘’Raising a flag about democratic liberty compromises Ethiopia’s security, and perhaps Africa would go down with us if the West attempts to shovel democracy down our throat’’, they keep saying. But the wind of democratic liberalization is already sweeping Africa and a democratic Africa is so much incomplete without a democratic Ethiopia. On top of this, without security, liberty is fragile and reversible; and without liberty, security is oppressive and suffocating. The Communists may attempt to retain one and kick the other down the road. But it is so much a false choice and nothing more than empty posturing and self-deception. There is no denying that the Govt faces tremendous challenges in the process of the democratic transformation we are talking about; but challenges, if confronted head-on, should lead to rewarding opportunities and not crumbling problems. Many in the World had gone through that painful labor before, but history is a living witness that the baby is surely worth having. The Ethiopian Authorities are obviously tying their hand up by restricting investment through higher corporate taxes, unability to box everyone into the tax bracket, denying regions to control their own resources and affairs and unwillingness to curb corruption which remains the main culprit for billions of AID dollars going down a rat hole. Ethiopia is estimated to have the largest number of sons and daughters in the diaspora than any other country in Africa; and although the Govt often cites a dire need to engage the diaspora and involve them in the country’s development activities, very little had been done so far. The country simply didn’t have the luxury to wait any longer to use all the resources it has if it had to actually throw poverty to the ash hip of history. Grabbing the hands of tens of millions of citizens mired in an abject poverty and erecting them in the middle class as purported by the regime is a daunting task that requires a major policy overhaul that goes far in excess of cheap political posturing and warrants making very painful decisions. Contrary to EPRDF inference that democratic liberalization is incompatible to Ethiopia’s political reality, it has been a well-established fact that democracy provides critical safety valves for societies; and without free exchange of ideas and steel-strong rule of law that guarantees the flow of Foreign Direct Investment, innovation and free entrepreneurship simply wither.

    It has been apparently clear that Ethiopia’s developmental media, the rubber stamp parliament and the toothless judiciary are nothing more than puppets whose duty is to dance when Arat Kilo pulls the strings; and if Ethiopia’s Communist rulers, as soft-skinned as they are, kept puffing themselves up and rode their high horse all over Africa complaining about Western bullying and aggression of their comfort lane thereby throwing their food on the ground, it is incumbent upon the West to remind the Communists to pick their food up or keep riding their horse unfed.

Considering the fact that Ethiopia currently earmarks about 40% of its annual budget to servicing foreign debt, which just keeps going way north at an alarming rate, it was only a matter of time before the nation’s public debt becomes not only a heavy burden that hangs on the neck of the Ethiopian economy, but also a brake that brings it to a complete halt. We may need to admit that the nation’s economic future could be brighter depending on what choices our people and their rulers make. Ethiopia’s development partners, as frustrated as they could be, have been relentlessly helping in seeking to break the nation’s chronic cycle of dependence that AID created by lending a hand to help the country build its own institutions and capacity to deliver essential services. This actually remains far more easier said than done as Ethiopia’s Communist rulers want an economic liberty but not democratic liberty. ‘’Raising a flag about democratic liberty compromises Ethiopia’s security, and perhaps Africa would go down with us if the West attempts to shovel democracy down our throat’’, they keep saying. But the wind of democratic liberalization is already sweeping Africa and a democratic Africa is so much incomplete without a democratic Ethiopia. On top of this, without security, liberty is fragile and reversible; and without liberty, security is oppressive and suffocating. The Communists may attempt to retain one and kick the other down the road. But it is so much a false choice and nothing more than empty posturing and self-deception. There is no denying that the Govt faces tremendous challenges in the process of the democratic transformation we are talking about; but challenges, if confronted head-on, should lead to rewarding opportunities and not crumbling problems. Many in the World had gone through that painful labor before, but history is a living witness that the baby is surely worth having. The Ethiopian Authorities are obviously tying their hand up by restricting investment through higher corporate taxes, unability to box everyone into the tax bracket, denying regions to control their own resources and affairs and unwillingness to curb corruption which remains the main culprit for billions of AID dollars going down a rat hole. Ethiopia is estimated to have the largest number of sons and daughters in the diaspora than any other country in Africa; and although the Govt often cites a dire need to engage the diaspora and involve them in the country’s development activities, very little had been done so far. The country simply didn’t have the luxury to wait any longer to use all the resources it has if it had to actually throw poverty to the ash heap of history. Grabbing the hands of tens of millions of citizens mired in an abject poverty and erecting them in the middle class as purported by the regime is a daunting task that requires a major policy overhaul that goes far in excess of cheap political posturing and warrants making very painful decisions. Contrary to EPRDF inference that democratic liberalization is incompatible to Ethiopia’s political reality, it has been a well-established fact that democracy provides critical safety valves for societies; and without free exchange of ideas and steel-strong rule of law that guarantees the flow of Foreign Direct Investment, innovation and free entrepreneurship simply wither.

    It has been apparently clear that Ethiopia’s developmental media, the rubber stamp parliament and the toothless judiciary are nothing more than puppets whose duty is to dance when Arat Kilo pulls the strings; and if Ethiopia’s Communist rulers, as thin-skinned as they are, kept puffing themselves up and rode their high horse all over Africa complaining about Western bullying and aggression of their comfort lane thereby throwing their food on the ground, it is incumbent upon the West to remind the Communists to pick their food up or keep riding their horse unfed.

  13. Bruk says:

    When they managed to arrive in Africa 500 years ago, they declared saying they discovered the continent. Meaning they discovered or created the continent by themselves no one knew before about for its existence and no one is there including the millions of Africans lived there ever since the first human was created. Their intention was to declare the private ownership on eth continent as they did everywhere they reached looking the land; escaping the hardships in the tiny, cold, poor and backward England/Europe.

    They did say the same thing when they arrived to the Americans, Australia and New Zealand, too. They wiped out 100s of millions of natives along side with the animals and forests from the Americans particularly north America, Australia and New Zealand. 200 years ago, there was no a single English (white) man in Australia. There were living native black Australians for more than 30.000 years speaking 375 languages. Where are they now after 200 years? What happened to them in this short period of time? Who is in charge in Australia today? Do they have a moral ground to stop other emigrants entering Australia as they are immigrants themselves?

    They are coming to Africa telling the Africans to learn English or native languages giving them supports including to those isolated tribes with less than 500 members. But in Australia the natives are not allowed to use their own languages and get education but the occupiers’ English language. It is the same in North America -USA and Canada. There are still more than 200 Native Americans speaking their languages living in their territories. But they are forcing them only to use English, instead of their own languages.

    There are 75 million Latinos in USA. But they are forcing them to use English, instead of their mother tong spoken by hundreds of millions worldwide. There are all human races and thousands Ethnic groups living in USA, England, Canada and so on some of them with millions members each including the Pakistanis, Indians, Bangladesh, Arabs, Berbers, Kurds, Turks and so on in England and elsewhere in the west. . But they are not allowed to get education using their mother languages. The reason they are giving is that speaking one language is good for the nation unity, prosperity and future.

    Yet, in Africa particularly in Ethiopia, they are not only financing but also aggressively interfering in the internal matters telling each ethnic group get education in their native language alongside using English which is a far away none African slave master and colonizer language. And the same times they are telling other Africans that are using English, not to use the native languages for the sake of the unity and future of the nation by speaking the same language. They are also giving money and old books from England in the form of aid while implementing their damaging and evil agenda on the Africans that would affect them badly in the long run.

    The above mentioned situations are the few among the thousands the evil English are still these days implementing as they are doing against the world for hundreds years. How is possible they decided to declare saying they have discovered the African continent despite it is the source of their civilization making them human from the cold and barbaric ice age they had been ever since they created?

    Greek came to Africa 2400 years ago. After Greek, Rome was there for more than 350 years. Then the Byzantines also from Europe were there till the Arabs kicked them out. Then the Mamluk were there. Then, ottoman was there. So, how come, they discovered Africa; a continent that was there serving the world being the centre of the human civilization? Greek and Rome copied and learned from Africa and translated in to their languages( Greek and Latin) and spread to Europe that became the beginning of that cold and dark little continent with evil people like the English to become the way they are today started 500 years ago with slavery, occupation, looting, wiping out 100s of millions of natives, colonization, wars, distorting the facts, black mailings, lies, propaganda wars and the other evil things that are happening till this hour by them.

    As usual, they are vomiting lies after lies about Ethiopia today, too. They are telling us, Thatcher’s (who was called the Evil lady by the victims) Government was against Mengistu after the so called 1984 famine. The reason was because of she did care about the Ethiopian people Mengistu was affecting them.

    This kind fictional and fake story has to be worse than the misinformation and lies they have been done for centuries with none stop announcing to the world about the nature of black people including being less than animals, deserve no human right at all including the right of having a country and any property. Based on this principle they enslaved and colonized Africa for centuries. Black people became homeless including in their own continent and the speaking properties to the evil racist masters. Who are these evil masters? Are they all gone? No.

    Their children that are living from that kind legacy are here doing the same thing differently but for the same result they are looking for themselves at the huge expense of others which is in line with their evil fathers and for fathers legacy they are enjoying while putting the rest down and behind using that evil legacy pretending as if they are created by themselves rather than that legacy is giving them a huge start and make them reach any place they want including using money they have with plenty unlike the rest.

    That evil lady Thatcher and her Evil establishment were behind every bad thing happened to Ethiopia from day one after Mengistu took power. They were the ones facilitated the reasons that would give them the possibilities to declare famine in Ethiopia in order to discredit the Mengistu regime and most importantly to humiliate all Black people by attacking Ethiopia that was seen for centuries the symbol of Africa and black people( after all it was during the Bob Marley era and when blacks were feeling free the first time and they had to stop them by humiliating them the way they did against Ethiopia with no respect towards the people including the victims but singing and dancing in their names knowing they were doing perfectly for their secret agenda and plan behind).

    That evil lady is known as the worst racist ever lived during her time. Ask black people about her from England. Even her daughter was caught on camera while degrading Serena Williams because of her race. Her Son (s) was part of the apartheid regime in South Africa as she was having big businesses (looting Africa) and sentenced to jail because of he was behind the planned mercenary coup against a sovereignty African nation. Thanks to Zimbabwe, the mercenaries were caught at Harare air port on the way to commit the coup Equatorial Guinea.

    Thatcher was the first evil lady called N. Mandela A Terrorist reputedly in the parliament and BBC and other English establishment Medias also were calling him a terrorist as they were calling black people Negro. Yet, they are telling us today as if the Evil lady was against Ethiopia because of she did care about the country and people. This is how far they are jump reaching, how deep they are sinking and how wrong they are when they lie or commit crimes against others for the sake of their agenda and plan in other nation and society. Evil Thatcher was really an Evil lady well known nasty racist against black people including repeatedly calling Mandela a terrorist till her death.

    Yet, they are telling us lies after lies in this article about that evil lady behavior in Ethiopia. She was behind with the long taught and secretly worked plan in order to humiliate with famine where CIA and MI6 together with the two nation embassies leadership using the evil embellish establishment medias particularly BBC to humiliate Ethiopia as worst as possible for long time which is going till today after 30 years.

    Anything coming from the English lead west (USA) which is all of them are the English and Jews when it comes to Ethiopia, don’t believe anything at all the way it is coming. They are doing all based on their own plan, agenda and benefit at the cost of the other side.

    Everyone knows, the so called famine in Ethiopia was used for pure political propaganda reasons during the cold war era and also for race attack to humiliate all black people. CIA and MI6 were behind fully supported by the English lead USA and some other western governments. Geldof was just part of it. Other singers were used in order to make the situation as it happened based on the nasty secret plan and agenda from the English and USA government sides.

    They are also saying they did collect 150 million USA dollars. Where did go that money. The Ethiopian government received only second had cloths, health risky cookies, biscuit and so called medicines worth only 10 million priced by them with the values as if it was new and with good quality.

    Where went the rest 140 million? Ethiopia is associated with famine in the exchange for 10 million worth of Goods the government didn’t have any saying about. The evil English establishment and Jews owned corporate Medias and evil Jews journalists are still painting their evil shit about Ethiopia mentioning day and night the famine portraying as if it is going on today too. It was created for this reason the first place, to serve them for decades till the Ethiopians get balls and stop them using any means necessary including the hard and nasty ways as they are against us that way for decades. Enough in enough with these evils. They must not allow continuing affecting us in any way particularly from Ethiopia, period. Stop them using any means necessary. Don’t worry about them for anything as they are pure racists and evils against us for decades.

    It is better to stop and clean them from Ethiopia before the Ethiopian solders went to Somalia to confront the Islamist terrorists. The English establishment and Jews owned corporate Medias running by the evil Jew Journalists are worse than any terrorist group that is a fret to Ethiopia. The day these evils totally cleaned from the Ethiopian soil and the citizens know them with their evil nature against the country, that day will be the beginning of the best Ethiopian future. These evils are worst than any foreign enemy Ethiopia ever had in her long history. The English establishment and the Ashkenazi Jews are the greatest fret Ethiopia is going to face if she is not totally stopping them coming in the country in any form including pretending they are there for good and positive reasons which is the true nature of them full of lies after lies and manipulations.

    One USA solder in Afghanistan cost 1 million Dollar a year. One time USA had more than 100.000 soldiers in Afghanistan. That means USA had to spend more than 100 billion dollar in a year to keep the solders. And other costs are/were also reaching with tens of billions a year. Currently USA finances the Afghanistan government with 4 billion dollar budget. And when we multiply it with 14 years, it exceeds a trillion dollar. The situation was/is worst in Iraq. England also lost 100s of billions this way including lots of human lives. Yet, they are still talking about the so called famine and aid in Ethiopia they are saying did give 10 million that made them sing and dance.

    While the trillions they are spending in other countries are not mentioned at all or they are not humiliating the people like Afghanistan. Because, if they do, the Afghans will dismember them as it happened to a Jew Journalist in Pakistan. Jews are not going to any Muslim nation or other places that are confronting them. They are not welcomed in 109 nations. But they feel not only at home and in control but free to do anything bad in Ethiopia as they are doing for decades coming from England, USA and other western nations including France and Canada.

    The evil Jews and English establishment corporate medias, the evil Jews so called journalists(spy agents and …) and the organized criminals in the name of NGO, Charities, Foundations, Organizations, peace core and so on from England and USA are the worst enemies any nation has to avoid them completely. Anglo Saxon -Jewish 500 years marriage is badly affecting the whole world controlling everything including in the name of IMF, World Bank, World Trade, UN, Globalization, Privatization, banks, stock exchanges, financial sectors, investments and so on.

    Read what the Evil English are talking about the Evil lady so called PM related to Ethiopia. And don’t believe even a word what is written on. It is a total lie as usual rewriting fictional stories based on their agenda and benefit as they were forcing the Africans and the world to learn history from fictional stories about slavery and colonization written by them based on their (the slave masters and colonizers) agenda and plan. Among the others their history book forcing including us to learn history saying among the others “we discovered Africa, the Americans, Australia and new Zealand”. Can you imagine this was once part of the history book written by them and the rest of the world has to learn and accept it as if it was true? They are doing the same thing in other situation on daily basis everyday and the world is still dumb enough to follow them.

    Anything coming from them is not different from this kind lies, misinformation, distorting facts, blackmailing and so on including the famine in Ethiopia they are talking about based on their pre planed agenda and worked hard secretly including intensifying the civil war before they happily announced to the world with big ceremony singing and dancing using the world English language singers. hahaha. They are the known pure evils.

    “Margaret Thatcher demanded UK find ways to ‘destabilise’ Ethiopian regime in power during 1984 famine
    Thatcher decided it was wrong to ‘jog along’ with the Mengistu government, whose human rights abuses greatly exacerbated the famine death toll

    Margaret Thatcher demanded that Britain find ways to “destabilise” the regime which presided over Ethiopia’s disastrous 1984 famine after concluding that British aid was wrongly supporting its “particularly cruel” government, according to previously unpublished records.

    A top secret Downing Street memo reveals how the former Prime Minister wanted to support rebels fighting the authoritarian regime of Mengistu Haile Mariam and suspend some types of relief to the Ethiopians after a year of aid operations to alleviate the famine which killed a million people and inspired Band Aid and the Live Aid concerts.

    Documents released by the National Archives at Kew, west London, show Mrs Thatcher decided it was wrong to “jog along” with the Mengistu government, whose human rights abuses greatly exacerbated the death toll from the famine, and lambasted the Foreign Office for failing to come up with robust measures to tackle the regime.

    After the existence of the famine across Ethiopia was brought to the world’s notice by the harrowing reports of the BBC’s Michael Buerk in October 1984, a global response was mobilised with at least £150m in public donations and a vast international relief operation delivering hundreds of thousands of tonnes of food. In Britain, the public outcry was led by the singer Bob Geldof, who co-ordinated the Band Aid record and later famously employed the f-word on television to encourage donations during Live Aid in July 1985.
    But the secret records reveal profound disquiet at the highest level of the British government as significant aid began to reach the starving and an emergency airlift operation involving the RAF was discontinued towards the end of 1985.
    Mrs Thatcher had become frustrated at evidence of problems caused by the Ethiopian regime over distribution of food to famine victims, often in rebel areas, and attempts by the Addis Ababa government to impose customs duties on the aid shipments.

    In two memos by her private secretary Charles Powell, it is made clear that the Prime Minister was troubled by the idea that British aid had provided no geo-political influence over Mengistu’s Marxist regime and asked officials to answer the question: “Is it not inherently wrong to pour tens of millions of pounds of aid into a country and yet conclude that we have no serious scope for influencing its particularly cruel and objectionable government?”
    The documents, marked “top secret and personal” and restricted to only two copies, asked Foreign Secretary Geoffrey Howe to come up with ways to “put the Ethiopians under pressure and even destabilise them”.
    Mr Powell added: “The Prime Minister continues to believes that it is not enough just to jog along in our relations with the distasteful regime in Ethiopia.
    “If the conclusion is that our present relations offer no positive scope for exercising beneficial and positive influence, she would like serious thought given to how we can make life harder for the Ethiopian regime.”
    Among additional suggestions put forward on Mrs Thatcher’s behalf in the partially redacted memo were seeking American help to assist opposition figures inside Ethiopia and persuading the then European Community to take a tougher line over abuses such as customs duties.
    Stung by suggestions that its earlier answers (which included a plan to improve agricultural policies in Ethiopia) had not “adequately answered” Mrs Thatcher’s concerns, the FCO huffily replied that it had succeeded in persuading other European countries to stand up to the abuses of the regime, which was propped up with extensive military support from the Soviet Union.
    Senior diplomats poured cold water on suggestions that covert aid to rebels in Eritrea, at the time still a dominion of the government in Addis Ababa, would be a sensible strategy.

    The reply, sent on behalf of Mr Howe, said: “It would lead to even greater misdirection of the resources in Ethiopia towards civil war and would thus increase the likelihood of further famine and the need for further large-scale Western humanitarian aid.”
    Noting that the famine situation still remained critical, the memo concluded: “The Foreign Secretary shares the Prime Minister’s distaste for pouring aid into a country whose policies are objectionable. Nevertheless he does not see how we can avoid regarding humanitarian considerations as paramount.”
    The exchange seems to have produced a stalemate between Mrs Thatcher and her Foreign Secretary. A note on the FCO’s reply by Mr Powell states: “Prime Minister, pretty much a nil return… Agree to leave it at that for the time being?”

    ———-

    Don’t believe even a word written on it. It is pure lies after lies based on their own agenda and plan. We Ethiopians know the truth about. However, avoiding each and every English involvement and the Jews Evil so called journalists alongside with the so called NGOs, aid agencies, Charities and so on is the things must be done long times ago and the best solution that benefit us by protecting form them.

    Currently, there are more than 30.000 refugees in detention camp in England. They are guarding the boarder day and night from the refuges. yet, they are in Africa telling us to open unprotected our boarders, giving the right to the refugees and even they stupidly manipulated the Ethiopian government to transport more than 50.000 refuges deep in the country more than 300 KM from the boarder while the refuges always have to been kept close to their nation boarder in order to make the situation easy to return home.

    But they transported them 300 KM inside the country with secret long term plan to affect the country in many ways and keep the refuges for long times to come which is the best tactic they could get jobs and remain in the country doing their nasty jobs they are there the first place; which is really not helping the refugees but to implement their secret agenda in the country reaching all over the places.
    Judge them, how they are treating the refugees that are entering in their country. They call them illegal and criminals putting them in jail while they are inviting refuges from the neighboring countries to cross the Ethiopian boarder illegally. Thanks to them, Ethiopia is now hosting the biggest number of refuges in Africa despite they are not talking about because of it is against their agenda and principle about Ethiopia they are always portraying her with famine, poverty, weaknesses, conflicts and so on; not helping others including the huge number of refuges.

    As long as Ethiopia is not free from the English establishment leadership USA/Jews long standing negative involvement and nasty attacks against her in many ways, be sure, the worst things a head to be happen against us are in the future. The Jews so called journalists and their corporate medias alongside with the so called NGOs, charities, Foundations, organizations, aid agencies, peace core including from England and USA are worst than any invading foreign force. They are worst than the Nazis motivated by race and greedy.
