Ethiopia is the only ancient country in Africa which has never been colonised. The Europeans are making moves to destabilise it and put in power the people they want so that they can control it. Now, a coalition of people who are not even in Ethiopia are making demands of the Ethiopian government and threatening to overthrow it!
While no one can doubt the conflict between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray rebels is nasty and atrocities have been committted, the West must realise that sovereign nations have rights to quash rebellion in their own countries.
When western nations intervene in these situations by arming rebel groups and putting sanctions on governments that harm the people, they are using a very nefarious and evil form of control to change the power base in a country, and make no mistake this is deliberate. We’ve seen it all before, western nations wanting a regime change.
However what they fail to admit is that all nations have conflict and civil war, America had its own civil war, these are all part of how nations form and establish their identity. In Africa, I believe the struggles many nations had hundreds of years ago are happening today, and that could well be down to the huge impact the European borders that lie all over Africa, that have caused disruption to traditional lives. The looting of resources and people, and economic inequity in terms of currency valuations has an effec too. However, instead of African nations being allowed to grow and form as a natural progression of deciding their own conflicts, we have foreigners trying to manipulate the outcome in the name of “peace”.
Taking lessons in peace from a nation like America is a compete joke. They dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, carried on shamefully in the Vietnam War, used munitions that were coated with harmful chemicals that have harmed innocent civilians in Iraq long after the conflict ended, and we’ve seen their fruitless efforts in Afghanistan. Whenever they get involved, they make the situation WORSE, not better. Yet still they want to meddle, unwise people who repeat the same stupid “mistakes”, or so they would have us believe.
Why is it that western violence against other nations is ok in the eyes of the “international community”, but nations trying to manage conflict in their own borders is a terrible outrage?
This is hypocrisy and it saddens me. It is all part of the same old divide and conquer rhetoric of white supremacy, that has made the problem of conflict between our people worse for the last 500 years.
