Donald Trump "I saved a country (read Ethiopia) from civilwar"

Recommended Posts

Well, Ethiopia may have 7 lifes like a cat, but it is surely running low in how many more chances left for it. 

It all depends how the coming election goes. It is most likely be a bloody one.

He did save them (Ethiopia) just like George Bush Sr. did in 1991. Unlike we the nomads , they listen and take the advice.

Actually its too much listening that is the problem. And most importantly listening to the wrong people like Yamamoto, ay the wrong time.

If Clinton had won Yamamoto would have been undersecretary for Africa. And good.

Yamamoto has one mission in horn of Africa. Anti Chinese that is all. Overthrowing Ghelleh was a big assignment to Abiy and failed flat. They tried second hand color revolution failed. They tried some tribal chiefs failed. They tried Eritrea and some Afar from there Failed. They tried war (Somali Afar villages) on the road and rail ways Failed. They tried removing all Tigray commanders from Eastern Command and put Amxara Failed.

 

Farmaajo failed because he did not follow the first principle of the Nomad. No one will command a Nomad against his family, Camels, water well and greenery and faith.

Old_Observer,

I think Farmaajo failed for the same simple reason the late Col Cabdilah Yusuf Yey failed. And that is to rely on a "borrowed muscles" from the Ethiopia in-order to subdue the regional federal states of Somalia. And in the case of late Col. Yey, his agenda was to overcome his internal political foes within Mogadishu with some sort of attempted "help" from the Ethiopian's army (i.e., Tigrean's foot-soldiers, really) when he was trying and failing to govern Somalia between the years of 2004 till 2008.

And that is why Mr Farmaajo used the Ethiopian's army to basically "appoint" his man (a puppet, really) in Baidabo. Particularly he "crowned", politically, a cheap and a "biddable stooge" from the "Street-beggars" sort of ilk of Somalia, namely, from the teeming folks of Bay and Bakool regions. 

Similarly, he tried a "borrowed muscle" with Jubbaland, however, Kenya essentially told off Mr Abbiy Ahmed. And since there is no way Ethiopia will fall-out with Kenya on the account of some "glorified house-guest", who in turn is actually cooped up in Villa Somalia with the help and under the "protection" of his "in-laws" from his wife's side. Hence that meant that his attempt to subdue the "long-footed-folks" of Jubbaland with some sort of a "borrowed muscles" in the form of the Ethiopian's army is over, at least for now.

Also the reason the Gal-Mudug went to his "column" (or likely to go there) is that any minute a leader from that community in the central states of Somalia says no to Mr Farmaajo or says no to Mr Kheyre, will mean that the Ethiopian's army across the border in Ethiopia, can easily cross over from Ethiopian's side into central regions of Somalia in-order to subdue whoever is against the Villa Somalia's clique and their political agenda, who in turn could be found loitering around politically in places like Gal-Mudug.

And now recently, Mr Farmaajo, went to Eritrea, literally, to basically "beg" some sort of army from them, so that way he can then at least secure his Gedo's region from the likes of the Al-Shabaab and from any "encroachment" in which Mr Ahmed Madoobe and his "long-footed-and-not-too-bright-chaps" may be "designing" or may even be "contemplating" for this Gedo's region, with the help of Kenya under the alleged tutelage of Jubbaland.

So we shall see if the mad-man of Eritrea gives him some sort of a few Eritrean's battalions in-order to "liberate" (allegedly) the likes of Gedo's region before his term of office ends, with a nothing more than a measly whimper, really, come January of next year (2021).

Abiy for sure takes this as badge of honor. I have seen where some Abiy supporters were just so happy that Trump thought of Ethiopia and Abiy.

That is sad, but then Ethiopia has been like that for more than a century.

OO,

No one had tried to overthrow the fat dictator of Djibouti yet. He is already tired and weak, and i don't see any heir apparent to replace him. It is a one city state dominated by 200 well fed families while the rest of the population is in poverty.

I see a delusional boy in Hargeisa, Ina Biixi  trying to follow his footsteps.

Anyway, Trump himself is in need of saving from the hyenas in America.

So embarrassing. I think the Nobel price went to half value and questionable already.

One of Trump supporters just repeated it and went on a tirade why people accuse Trump of being racist when Trump saved a black country in Africa from infighting.

What did the Americans tell Tigray?
What did the Americans tell Ghelleh? Since those were the two that mattered at the time.

Is America a little bit easier on Ghelleh, because of that arrangement or because of Saudi help for Djibouti?


Ethiopia calls itself oldest independent and never colonized in Africa. But in the same sentence backward and poor and can't feed itself.

That is Orwellian.

At least the Somali, Afghan, Yemeni and others have obvious reason to blame, bloody location.
