2 USA Corps to build 2 Billion $ Gas Facility in Ethiopia

Recommended Posts

All wars are bankers wars

All wars are Economic

China was to build pipeline Ethiopia to Djibouti and or Puntland. The Americans were unhappy about it and ONLF was main to fight the Chinese, Malysia, and Singapore companies.

This now has become gas issue, since that is easier than the oil and During Meles time no oil was to be extracted or processed.

In 1916 a Prince/emperor was overthrown in Ethiopia competition between British Petroleum and Standard Oil of New Jersey (Exxon). The Brtish won then, but the Americans after 2nd world war won back.

The problem now is all China, America and UAE have to rely on one force. Coup has not been successful a few generals that tried in 2014 have been already released from prison, abondoning their plans and telling the government everything involved.

 

Could America and Russia agreed on something. Both agreed to work on Energy in Ethiopia.

How far have USA pressured Ethiopia against Djibouti, against its own interest?

The last time ONLF received just 4 million cash reward for the job and nothing was secret. "Could America and Russia agreed on something. Both agreed to work on Energy in Ethiopia." are local people getting anything for the deal?

1913 Lij Iyasu of Ethiopia gives exploration and extraction of oil in Ethiopia to Standard Oil of New Jersey (became Exxon in 1972).

1916 Lij Iyasu was overthrown and British brought king Haileslassie to power. He gave the concession to Persian British oil company (now British petroluem).

1936 Standard oil of New Jersey was the only and main energy supplier of Italy invading Ethiopia and Musollini had agreed to give Standard Oil all concessions.

1941 The British restored Haileslassie against all odds and patriots who fought Italy.

1930 oil find is confirmed in Saudi Arabia. The Soviets did the initial leg work and supported the Saud. The British took over from them and prepared Iraq, Saudi and other areas like Kwait for total domination.

1945 The British were bankrupt and out of game. American president Roosevelt brought Kings Saud and Haileslassie to a ship and told them the following:

Saud - America will protect you and America is only and only one that will have all concessions

Haileslassie: forget oil do Electrical generation that will light all africa and even Saudia

 

 

Saud did as told and got as promissed

Haileslassie was too chicken , avoided risk of Egypt and did nothing, his people starved. Ethiopia is still poor and backward for ethiopian kings greed, stupidity and cowardice.

Yes, but was total loss for ONLF.

Almost half of its fighters including central committee members reconciled with the government

A lot of its support even in diaspora questioned the nobleness of the idea/aim

Djibouti, Somaliland, Puntland including Mugadishu saw that ONLF has bocome a mafia style operation to be hired everywhere in cluding in Mogadishu and south Somalia.

4 million might have made somebody rich, but was not used in the organization.

 

Even the Italian mafia always protected its neighborhood. Women children elders were respected and protected by mafia. ONLF or maybe somebody in ONLF name did criminal and cruel acts in the kilil against ordinary people.

Mr. Tllerson is Mr. Exxon himself

Was there Gasprom man with Mr. Lavrov?

Smart man Gheulleh is all quiet along with the Chinese, but for sure securing his back yard.

 

The big sign will be what happens in Eritrea, Sudan and Ethiopia. America is recending sanctions on Sudan almost one per day, why?

      It is official. The era of despot Cabdi Illey is over in the Somali region. 
      After closed door deliberations, the DDSI party had elected Mr. Ahmed Shide as the new leader which officially ends the 11 year painful rule of Illey. 
      This selection will pave Mr. Shide as the new president of the region very soon. Also, the Liyu police has been disbanded as the security force of the Somali region. For the last few days the Liyu have been looting and pillaging communities while abandoning their positions. 
      Also, members of Illey family are been investigated by the authorities for the theft of millions of dollars. 
      It is an end of a painful chapters for a lot of Somalia. A very small group of blood thirsty group,  created and organised by the Tplf and Cabdi Illey have been overthrow thanks to the Oromo uprising. While many Somali including my self were looking to preserve the old order for the sake order and continuity, millions of Somalia want the total demise and the removal of the tyrants who oppressed them for so long. Just like the Oromo celebrated the demise of the Tplf order, for the millions of Somalis the end of Illey and his henchmen is a great relief and a new era of freedom. 
       
      There were some security concern about the disbanding of the Liyu police and the threat of anarchy and outlaws in the countryside, yet for most people, their disbanding was a relief. Analysts believe that the Liyu is too criminal or murderous to be a force that might fight for independence or even tribal reasons. They were trained to kill and abuse Somali and will not be needed in a land where people are seeking justice and freedom. 
      It is mind boggling how a small ruthless group had managed to oppress and control millions of Somalia for so long. They acted like there is no one else but themselves.
      Now, Illey and his supporters must accept the new order and collaborae for the peace and development of all Somali. He and Tplf wanted to finish off the Somali and createa long  civil war between the Somali and Oromo. There were a lot of victims, but we hope the worst to be over. He gambled to the lives of thousands of Somali to save the Tplf order. After he lost the gamble, he continued to the destructive route until it is too late.

      Very sad news.
       
      Nothing is known yet from the police, but the media is reporting that he died from gun shot and the hand gun colt has been found in the car.

      galbeedi,
      Why didn't you bring the most important news for you, the oil well to be drilled announced by Abiy?
      Why this go around to bring civil war among Somalis? What do you gain?
      Why is the area where the pipeline to pass more useful to you than the area where the prospective well is?
       
      Why cover with Iley why not say the main motivation for you the trade route?
