    Humble Self- Forced Opinion

    Honest Question: Are those so-called Ethiopians, who are behind the fall of Ethiopia, are now happy?!?!?!?!?
    WHAT did they gain out fractured Ethiopia into pieces?!?!?!?!

  2. Contrary to what some of you ‘doctors’ think bigots and thugs are roaming as they wish both in Amhara and Oromia regions. Those in Oromia who have been fantasizing about carving out a territory as their exclusive fiefdom have to realize that such scheme ain’t gonna happen. Ever! They have resorted to murdering civilians and local officials in the most barbaric ways. They burn down civilian homes and kidnap others for hefty ransoms. Those hoodlums in Amhara region are doing the same. There is no an iota justifications for these savage acts. Remember that these two regions contain close to 50% of the entire population of the country. These bigots must be sorted out and expunged from the society of that gem of the colored. Nuff said for now.
