I don’t know about this report. I am not even sure if what we are told in the article did really happen. So far every time we see reports by the government that Debre’s forces are licked beyond repair, the next story we hear is the new siege laid by his army. We were recently told that forces that devastated a town in Amhara region were completely surrounded with no chance of escaping. Then we were given a revised status on the surrounded hoodlums. They are fled to the top of one of the highest mountains in the area and the ENDF and their allied militia know about it. What I have been getting from these feel-good stories is the fact that somebody is using tools from the texts of guerrilla warfare. Something is not holding water for me here. If Debre’s and his goons are dealt telling blows they will never be able to recover from, I’m for it and I’ll invite the Valkyrie to come out and serenade all of us with the highest pitch/note she can belch. It all started in earnest when the prime minister declared a unilateral declaration of a cease fire and an organized withdrawal of his forces from Tigray. In the same week we were treated with videos of thousands of ENDF soldiers being paraded as POWs in the streets Mekele. Then lights with bigots among us and their western sellouts just went up blinding us bragging about their achievements on the battlefield worthy of being included in the text books of military warfare. Tsadkan, we were told, is at par with Erwin Rommel, Hannibal, Patton and other legendary military strategists. So I say this to Jerry one more time: Show me the money!!!
