  1. Whooowee!!! I’m running out of numbers counting!!! But I still need my cities of Axum, Adwa, Adigrat and Mekele back pronto. Debre’s overseas operatives are said to be working on a large scale propaganda campaign to arouse fear in the UN that Abiy is planning an all out military operation on the region of Tigray to carry out large scale genocide with a help of Eritrea. I’m not sure how that will pan out for them but it may trigger once again a call for an external(UN sanctioned) military intervention and enforce a ‘peaceful’ resolution as such idea was already entertained more than before. I am not sure who will come up with the terms for peaceful resolution acceptable by both sides. It seems that Debre will never recognize the current federal government in Addis/Finfine and will never, ever disarm his rag tag looters. Hey, I am not the one who called them ‘looters’ but the UN itself just did that and as confirmed by TPBBC World News.
