The U.S. blames “Eritrean forces and Amhara regional forces” for situation in Tigray

borkena 

In a latest round of statements , seemingly aimed at throwing a continued tacit support in the direction rescuing Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) from the ashes, the U.S. department of state on Tuesday called for “all parties to the conflict to end hostilities immediately.”

The statement came after a phone conversation between Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and U.S. Secretary of State,  Antony J. Blinken, on April 27. 

It was said that Mr. Blinken reiterated “concern” about what the statement called “deteriorating humanitarian and human rights crisis in the country, including the growing risk of famine in Ethiopia’s Tigray region as well as ongoing insecurity in other parts of the country.” 

Furthermore, the U.S. wants the implementation of withdrawal of Eritrean forces from the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Not just that, the U.S. state department also accused Amhara regional forces and Eritrean forces of “contributing to the growing humanitarian disaster and committing human rights abuses. ” 

Earlier this week, Mr. Joe Biden’s administration appointed Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman as a special envoy for the Horn of Africa. According to a report by Foreign Policy magazine, the new special envoy sees doomsday for Ethiopia – something that excels the level of destruction seen in Syria. 

The United Nations Security Council had discussed the situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. While expressing concerns about the humanitarian situation in the region, it has recognized Ethiopian Government Humanitarian Assistance efforts in the region, according to an update from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia.

    Humble Commentary, 27 Apr 2021
    Just curiosity: After the above ultimatum order, is there any choice left for any independent UN Member State to question the order of the mighty, of the beloved, and of the good old USA.? One can’t help asking thyself whether, the favourite, the well known, the most experienced and loved new President of the USA did indeed give his blessing to that course of action? Hard to believe………

  2. I don’t see any problem with Secretary Blinken’s comments. Is the situation in that region concerning? Yes it is. The goons of the TPLF have been building a glittering facade out of that region for more than 45 years. They were busy amassing untold wealth for their families and the connected few around them but had left the region built on sand. And as an insult to injury it is reported that they were on rampage destroying major infrastructures such roads and bridges while they cut and ran from Mekele like rabbits or as that patriot Bacha put it like rats. In the meantime, the UN Security Council has applauded the federal government’s effort to improve the dire situation there and Good Ole USA is one of the permanent members of the UN Security Council. Still the US is the largest donor of humanitarian aid to the old country. In war situations there should be concerns. The old country’s own domestic human rights group had expressed its serious concerns. I have concerns that someone, some trigger happy cowboy wannabe can help himself with the misery of others there. I understand that the human rights body there is investigating and let’s wait for its final report.

  3. “All parties to the conflict” was the same formula the US uses everywhere it finds conflicts. That was what happened during the 1991 London Conference! The US selected Tplf and Eplf WITHOUT even notifying the Ethiopian side! Now think what they put us through. Cohen was the point man then and Cohen and Clinton-era leftovers are at it again! Abiy should NEVER fall for the trap. Tplf is a criminal gang. No negotiations with a criminal gang, period. Patriotic Ethiopians should stand with Abiy. And divide up responsibilities to educate the global community over what transpired and go after enablers such as Tedros Adhanom, Dawit Wolde Giorgis, Alex de Waal, and so on.

  4. It is reported that the newly appointed special envoy to the Horn of Africa was quoted to have said “If the tensions in Ethiopia would result in a widespread civil conflict that goes beyond Tigray, Syria will look like child’s play by comparison.”

  5. The audacity and the arrogance of the united state of America is nothing new, however, whether or not Ethiopia and the rest of the world accepting the continuation of the behavior of Amerikkka as being the ruler of the world, telling other nations what to do, what not to do, imposing its will, threatening their national security, national integrity, impeding their existence as a nation and intervening in their internal affairs, if you don’t do what I say I will label you as a human rights abuser and overthrow you from power, is a typical Amerikkkan slave-driving mentality, white supremacy as well as imperial fascism.
    The number one human rights abuser in the world is none other than the accuser itself of others, the United States of Amerikkka, which is determined to break up Ethiopia unless otherwise Ethiopia and the prime minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed becomes its slave and errand boy to Amerikkka, as it were during terrorist TPLF ruling of Ethiopia, in which the United States of Amerikkka was very closely allied with, even though TPLF terrorist government was massacring hundreds of thousands of innocent Ethiopians just because they happen to be other ethnic groups, especially the Amharas for being the staunch defenders of Ethiopia and hate for Amrikkka’s white supremacy, imperial Fascism and Amerikkka’s stance and hate towards Ethiopia. The United State of Amerikkka stood by shoulder to shoulder with the terrorist TPLF and poured millions of dollars at the hands of TPLF. The slavedriver Amerikkka is upset about the situation in Ethiopia because it lost its Africa”s number one servant, and errand boys, terrorist TPLF, which has been fighting America’s dirty secret wars in Eastern and Subsaharan African countries, sacrificing Ethiopian citizens for the sake of its master Amerikkka. The despicable Joe Biden presidency brought back the most corrupt Americans in the US government to ran its foreign policy in Africa, namely, TPLF member Susan Rice, Antony J. Blinken, Jeffery Feltman, and so forth.
    ETHIOPIA, the people of Ethiopia, and the leadership of pm. Abiye Ahmed will not bow to Amerkkka’s necked aggression, white supremacy, slave-driving mentality, and imperial fascism towards the independent and free ancient nation of ETHIOPIA, GOD willing ETHIOPIA will and shall defeat its enemies as it has done in its entire history.

    GOD BLESS THE NATION OF ETHIOPIA AND HER PEOPLE WHEREVER WE MAYBE
