Deployment of additional Eritrean Troops to the Oromia region is underway.

Eritrea Oromia
From FILE: Eritrean Soldiers marching to Ethiopia

Abiy is deploying additional Eritrean troops to the Oromia region. These troops arrived at Bole Airport and transported from there to Dambi Dolo, Asosa, Jima and Hawassa airports by plane. This is in addition to the more than 30,000 deployed recently.

Ethiopian airlines is no more civilian.

  1. Ya Oromo,

    A Speculation

    As Traders say on Wall Street, ” Speculation is serious Business,” so, in that vein of thinking, I am going to speculate on the SERIOUS BUSINESS OF THE PROBABLE
    RE-CONQUERING OF OROMIA CURRENTLY UNDERWAY…Indulge me, if you will please…

    We now know the reason for the closure of Bole International Airport to Civilian Aviation for an unusually extended period, a couple of days ago…It turns out that, the Closure of the Airport was to transport MORE Eritrean Mercenary Forces into Oromia! The Americans, the European Union, and the English have given their TACIT OR an as yet UNDISCLOSED OFFICIAL approval for an all out total war on the Oromo Liberation Army, OLA, AND by extension the Oromo people, BECAUSE THEY WANT TO ENSURE THE ‘TERRITORIAL INTEGRITY’ OF Ethiopia, an Empire State. Why the FOCUS on the OLA and/or the OLF? The answer is simple really: Unlike Lenco,Leta, Dima Nogo, and some of the TURNCOATS of the bygone years, THESE CURRENT CROP OF OROMO LIBERATION FRONT AND OROMO LIBERATION ARMY LEADERS CAN NOT BE BOUGHT OR CO-OPTED INTO ACCEPTING THE COLONIAL STATUS OF OUR PEOPLE IN PERPETUITY! What proof do I have that the West has ‘approved’ an ALL OUT WAR on our people you may ask.
    A fair question. I do not have a ‘written memo’ from any of the ‘Good Offices’ of the Western Powers mentioned to show you in support of my speculation but, to a Careful Observer, there have been tell-tell signs which can, in their totality, point us in the right direction…One such tell-tell SIGN is the shrill with which these same Western Powers have CONDEMNED the presence of Eritrean Troops in Tigray; while NONE of them EVER raised a single objection to the killing of the Oromo people by these SAME ERITREAN TROOPS IN WESTERN, CENTRAL, & SOUTHERN Oromia over the past FIVE months,i.e, SINCE THE ARRIVAL OF ERITREAN GROUND TROOPS ON OROMO SOIL as opposed to Eritrean Military Advisors in Abyi’s Palace! The additional deployment of more Eritrean Ground Troops to Oromia is a CONFIRMATION of their Tacit Approval AND COMPLICITY, actually, in the MURDER AND KILLING OF THE OROMO PEOPLE, BECAUSE the Oromo People, WITH THEIR UNWAVERING SUPPORT FOR THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE OLA, have BECOME an IMPEDIMENT to fulfilling the WEst’s PLAN of CRUSHING the Oromo Liberation Army, the ONLY SERIOUS OBSTACLE standing in their way towards putting their grand “anti-fragmentation” plan for Ethiopia in place. Why, you may wonder, are the Western Powers so ADAMANT about ‘KEEPING ETHIOPIA TOGETHER’? Here are the three reasons I can think of:

    1)They say they do not want another “Failed State” in the Horn of Africa. The example they cite is Somalia. But NO ONE HAS YET DISCUSSED THE
    TRADEOFFS BETWEEN KEEPING THE OLD SOMALIA OF SIAD BARRE’S GOVERNMENT AS IT WAS, VERSUS HAVING THE THREE ENTITIES CARVED OUT OF THE FORMER SOMALIA yet, to convince me why this current form is DISADVANTAGEOUS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE MAJORITY OF THE INHABITANTS OF SOMALIA COMPARED TO THEIR CONDITIONS DURING THE REIGN OF SIAD BARRE! I tell you what is obvious to me: the current situation has MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR WESTERN POWERS TO EXTRACT RESOURCES FROM SOMALIA AT WILL, specially, its RICH Coastal Marine Resources, in my observation, in contrast to the ‘Good Old Days’ of Siad Barre…That much is clear in the case of Somalia! Could it be that the notion of a ‘Failed State’ is actually the West ‘crying Wolf,’ in some cases? Your guess is as good as mine, as the old adage goes…2) The Americans, the English, and the Europeans ALL know that the REAL FRAGMENTATION of AFRICA OCCURRED AFTER THE BERLIN CONFERENCE OF 1884-1885, AND THE ‘ORIGINAL HABESHAS,’ THE ABYSSINIANS, WERE EQUAL PARTNERS IN THE SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA, i.e, DIVVYING-UP THE SPOILS OF THE TERRITORIES OF THE HORN OF AFRICA WITH THE THEN REIGNING EUROPEAN POWERS OF ENGLAND, AND ITALY.
    ARMED WITH REMINGTON RIFLES SUPPLIED TO THE CHRISTIAN KINGDOM OF ABYSSINIA BY THE ENGLISH, THE ABYSSINIANS GOT REWARDED WITH THE CONQUEST OF THE OROMOS, THE SIDAMA, WOLAYITA, HARRARI, AFAR, AND OTHER PEOPLES’ LANDS INCLUDING, OGADENA , LAND OF THE SOMALI PEOPLE. AS AN ANECDOTE, HERE IS A REAL FRAGMENTATION FOR YOU:
    THE REST OF SOMALI COUNTRY BESIDES OGADEN, WHICH THE ABSSYNIANS ACQUIRED FOR FREE, WAS DIVIDED BETWEEN THE ENGLISH AND THE ITALIANS! ‘BIYAA OROMO”, OR ‘OROMO LAND’ WAS DIVIED UP BETWEEN THE ENGLISH AND THE ABSSYNIANS! A FUN FACT: I can not tell you how many times I had to explain, during my University days, to ‘Ethiopians’ and the so called Western ‘Experts’ on the affairs of the Horn of Africa that “THERE ARE OROMOS IN KENYA, AND THAT THEIR LAND STRETCHES FROM MOYALE, TO TANA RIVER, via LAGA HAREE,TO THE INDIAN OCEAN COAST, to the utter disbelief of my listeners in MOST cases…In some cases, the eyes of my interlocutor will ‘glaze over’ and I remember how their ignorant incredulity made me feel like a liar…LOL

    SO, TO ALL THE SHRILL ABOUT ‘Fragmentation & Balkanization” I SAY, the REAL Fragmentation OCCURRED back in 1884-1886 during and after the Berlin Conference, AND TODAY’S NATIONAL MOVEMENTS ARE ACTUALLY, IF ANYTHING AT ALL, ABOUT REUNITING A PEOPLE WHO WERE FORCIBLY SEPARATED BY REMINGTON RIFLES AND THE POISON GAS OF THE ENGLISH, EITHER INTO SEPARATE ‘COUNTRIES,’ OR ‘PROVINCES AND ADMINISTRATIVE REGIONS’ OF SOME NEWLY MINTED COUNTRIES, SUCH AS ETHIOPIA! IN ETHIOPIA, FOR OVER A HUNDRED YEARS, THE MOVEMENT OF OROMOS FROM ONE PROVINCE TO ANOTHER OR INTO THE CITIES WAS BANNED BY THE IMPERIAL STATE!

    3) The West is working from an assumption which claims that the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) is highly influenced by Nationalists of the Islamic Faith, therefore, CAN NOT BE TRUSTED TO BE A PARTNER WITH THE WEST IN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS. AS a result of this erroneous belief, the West HAS ALWAYS BEEN SUSPICIOUS OF THE SECULARISM OF THE OROMO LIBERATION STRUGGLE. Here too, it seems to me that the West has ‘bought’ into A FALSE NARRATIVE CONCOCTED by Nefxagna Amahara Elites who wish for nothing better, in their entire lives, than to see the destruction of the Oromo Liberation Front AND THE CONTINUATION OF THE OROMO PEOPLE IN THEIR STATUS AS SUBJECT PEOPLE IN PERPETUITY, FROM WHOM RESOURCES CAN BE EXTRACTED FOR THE BENEFIT OF THEIR AMHARA-CENTRIC STATE! In Passing, I want to point out that, WE OROMOS WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR THE FAITH OUR PEOPLE CHOOSE TO FOLLOW WHETHER OR NOT THEY USE THE KNOWLEDGE THEIR FAITH TEACHES THEM FOR THE BENEFIT OF THEIR OWN PEOPLES’ STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM! That the OLF is A SECULAR Organization has been proven with the UNITY IN MARTYRDOM OF OUR LEADERS! During the formative years of the OLF, ten of the Leaders of the OLF, while traveling from Oromia to Mogadishu on foot to solicit Aid and assistance for the National liberation struggle from the Large Oromo Community in Somlia’s Capital, were ambushed and captured by some Armed Bandits who wanted to separate each and everyone of them into their respective faiths’ of Islam and/or Christianity, so they can spare the Muslims but kill the Christians. One of those men murdered at the time was my Paternal Cousin! THE LEADERS OF THE OLF REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THEIR ORDER CHOOSING TO DIE TOGETHER AS OROMOS RATHER THAN LIVE JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR MERE FAITH! BASED ON THIS FACT, WE OROMOS CELEBRATE OUR MEMORIAL DAY ON APRIL 15, IN HONOR OF THE EXAMPLE BEQUEATHED TO US BY THOSE HONORABLE AND DIGNIFIED SOULS WHO CHOSE TO DIE AS OROMOS THAN LIVE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY PRACTICED ‘THE RIGHT RELIGION’ i.e, THE ‘RELIGION’ OF the BANDITS! The West needs to REALIZE THAT THIS IS NOT A MADE-UP STORY BUT THE GUIDING PRINCIPLE OF THE OROMO LIBERATION FRONT TODAY AND INTO THE FUTURE! WE will not accept your aid and assistance if it is, in any way, predicated upon our practicing a religion that pleases you! You HAVE THE ETHIOPIANS, OR THE HABESHAS, AS WE PREFER TO CALL THEM, FOR THAT: YOU DO NOT NEED US, AND THANK G*D ALMIGHTY, WE DO NOT DEPEND ON YOU TO FREE OURSELVES FROM THE BONDAGE YOU DEVISED FOR US IN THE FIRST PLACE! THE OLF BELIEVES AND LIVES BY THE PRINCIPLE THAT FAITH IS A PERSONAL MATTER, WHILE OROMIA IS A COLLECTIVE POSSESSION OF ALL HER LAWFUL CITIZENS!

    These three reasons, enumerated above, I believe are at the heart of the West’s ‘Suspicion’ of and Diplomatic attitudes towards the Oromos and the Oromo Liberation Front. It also explains the tacit approval they have given to the Eritrean Army to remain in Oromia to ‘crush and destry’ the OLF, so they could keep their own creation, Ethiopia, from ‘disintegrating!’ How do they intend to execute on their plan of keeping Ethiopia together then?

    Fist, the English, the EU and the Americans are fully aware of the current thinking of TPLF Leaders that Tigray CAN NOT EASILY MAKE A TRANSITION INTO A VIABLE, ECONOMICALLY VIBRANT, INDEPENDENT COUNTRY IN A SHORT ORDER, of say Twenty years, for example. BUT AN INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN OROMO REPUBLIC COULD POSSIBLY JUST DO THAT! BECAUSE Of THESE TEMPORARY LIMITATIONS OF ECONOMIC CAPACITY, the TPLF/TDF are not KEEN on declaring their independence from Ethiopia YET! That understanding between the West and the TPLF, makes it easy and convenient, to work with the TPLF/TDF for the “GREATER GOOD” of avoiding ‘fragmentation’ or “Balkanization”, the Common Refrain heard from ALL the “Experts,” Habesha AND Non-Habesha alike, on the affairs of the Horn of Africa. If that is the case, then the TPLF could be “persuaded” to stay within a “Democratic Ethiopia” where the Amhara Elites could be ‘NICELY’ SIDELINED, with the TPLF and ONLY the TPLF as the ‘TOP DOG,’ TO DO AS THEY PLEASE WITH THE VAST RESOURCES OF OROMIA TO WHICH THEY WILL HAVE UNFETTERED ACCESS, once THE OROMO LIBERATION ARMY IS weakened enough even if not completely destroyed, to become a non-issue for the New Rulers. The TPLF/TDF’s LIGHTNING advance against the Amhara Elites’ Chauvinist Militias can be partly explained by this new development! THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THE TPLF IS GETTING DIRECT MILITARY INTELLIGENCE ASSISTANCE FROM THOSE WITH ‘EYES IN THE SKY’ IN ITS STUNNINGLY SPEEDY FORAY INTO AMHARA, AFAR, AND SOON, OROMIA Regional States! AS I have mentioned elsewhere here On Ayyaantuu’s & Kichuu’s pages in a couple of comments recently, the “Second Coming” of the TPLF/TDF to get rid of Abiy’s inept, brutal, and unwittingly “Anti-Ethiopian” Regime not only HAS the blessings of the English, the Americans, and the EU, it is ACTIVELY assisted by these Powers! The TPLF WILL SOON BE ROLLING INTO FINFINNE/ADDIS ABEBA! THEY MAY EVEN KISS AND MAKE PEACE WITH THEIR COUSIN, Mr. AFEWERKI, WHO WILL BE REWARDED NICELY FOE BEING A GENTLE MAN OF THE WEST, BY ASSISTING IN WEAKENING THE OLF AND HELPING THE WEST AVOID THE ‘BOGEY MAN’ OF ‘DISINTEGRATION AND BALKANIZATION’ OF ETHIOPIA, THE WEST’S POSTER CHILD OF ‘EVERYTHING GOOD’ ABOUT BLACK AFRICA!

    What then for our people, and all the other colonized people of the Empire?

    First, I am afraid the Oromo people particularly, and all the other COLONIZED PEOPLE, are about to experience the brutality of multiple enemies the likes of which we have not seen to date, in the long history of our struggle for National Self-Determination. Second, when the ‘Second Coming” of the TPLF materializes, the degree of Resource Extraction which will occur in order to accumulate the Wealth Necessary for a Future Independent Tigray Republic, AND TO BUILD THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF THEIR FUTURE STATE WHILE THEY RULE OVER OUR PEOPLE, will make the plunder of Africa by Europeans look like a Child’s Play! Look, the TPLF, if it AGREES TO RE-CONQUER OROMIA, will be fully aware that it CAN NOT KILL US ALL! ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, THE OROMO WILL FIND A WAY TO FIGHT BACK, JUST AS I EXPECT THE SIDAMA, THE SOMALI, THE AFARS AND THE OTHERS WILL, WITH VARYING DEGREES OF INTENSITY! This MEANS it has to conduct its ROBBERY OF Oromo AND OTHER COLONIZED PEOPLES RESOURCES with LIGHTING SPEED! With the help of the West, their Benefactors, they have done it in situations of actual War against the Amhara! It is going to be as easy as ‘a walk in the park’ to TAKE whatever they want from Oromia with the assistance of their American, English, and EU Friends! I WILL BE PERFECTLY HAPPY TO BE WRONG IN MY CYNICALLY DEPRESSING SPECULATION!

    But If I were right? What can we do with the little time we have left before we begin seeing TPLF/TDF Forces in our villages, our farms, our towns, and outside our huts?

    For the Oromo and ALL the Other Colonized People:
    A) Prepare to defend yourself, your family, your property, AND YOUR DIGINITY! YOU DID NOT GO TO THE HOMES OF THE PEOPLE OF TIGRAY to robe, steal, enslave, And Humiliate them! YOU CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF TIGRAY BY THE AMHARA NEFXAGNA REGIME OF ABIYOT, aka, ABIY AHMED! If the TPLF/TDF shows up outside your door, on the other hand, be prepared for the worst possible form of thievery, harassment, and humiliation you have EVER EXPERIENCED EVER! THOUGH THEY DO NOT ADMIT IT IN THE OPEN, THE TPLF/TDF, WITH THEIR UNPARALLELED CONTEMPT FOR THE COLONIZED PEOPLE OF ETHIOPIA, HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR “SUPPORTING” ABIYOT/ABIY AHMED in his disastrous adventures in Tigray! DO NOT LET THEM DO AS THEY PLEASE WITH YOU! GO DOWN FIGHTING! Herein lies the BEAUTY of a War of National Salvation and Self-Defense: the weakest human being in his own land could be the most formidable enemy to an OCCUPIER AND AN INTRUDER!

    B)Believe me on this one, I know a little bit about Military Science: You are going to need something better than a Club, a Spear, AND a Machete! That will do in CLOSE Quarters but you will NEED GUNS for defense and distance…Go get some training if you can AND GET ARMED, MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, GET SOME ARMS WHILE YOU CAN, even if you can’t get professional training! YOU CAN TEACH YOURSELF THE BASICS! REMEMBER THE GREATEST PRINCIPLE TO LIVE BY IN SELF DEFENSE: IT IS BETTER TO HAVE A GUN AND NOT NEED IT THAN TO NEED IT AND NOT HAVE IT!

    LET’S PREPARE AS IF WAR IS ABOUT TO BE VISITED UP ON US BY THE TPLF/TDF AND ITS WESTERN SPONSORS! YOU MAY EVEN HAVE THE COUSINS ‘MAKE UP’ AND GANG UP ON YOU! DO NOT GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT! LET’S US PREPARE TO DEFEND OURSELVES, OUR FAMILY, OUR LAND, OUR VILLAGE, OUR PEOPLE, AND OUR DIGNITY! WE DO NOT NEED TANKS AND A COLUMN OF THOUSANDS OF SOLDIERS! WE CAN MAKE OROMIA A BURIAL GROUND FOR AN INVADING ARMY, EVERY HOUR, EVERY DAY, EVERY WEEK, EVERY MONTH, AND SO FORTH, FOR AS LONG AS THEY CHOOSE TO REMAIN ON OUR LAND UNINVITED!

    THE OROMO LIBERATION ARMY IS THE GUARANTOR OF OUR PEOPLE’S FREEDOM BUT THEY CAN NOT DO IT ALONE! LET US STAND WITH OUR SONS, DAUGHTERS, BROTHERS, AND SISTERS OF THE OROMO LIBERATION ARMY WITH EVERYTHING AND ALL WE HAVE! LET US REFUSE TO BE
    RE-CONQUERED BY THE TPLF/TDF A SECOND TIME!

    WE OROMOS AND THE PEOPLES OF THE COLONIZED NATIONS HAVE NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM TO ETHIOPIA! ETHIOPIA HAS, IS, AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE A PROBLEM FOR US IN ITS CURRENT STRUCTURE! THEREFORE, IT IS RIGHT FOR THE OROMO TO REBEL! IT IS RIGHT FOR THE SIDAMA, THE SOMALI, THE AFAR, THE WOLAYITA, THE KAMBATA, THE GUMUZ, THE BENISHANGUL , THE GAMBELA, THE AGEW, THE QIMANT AND ALL THE COLONIZED PEOPLE OF THE EMPIRE TO REBEL!

    LET US BRING FORTH An Independent AND A Sovereign Oromo Republic, Conceived in Liberty, with FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR ALL HER CITIZENS!

    Waqaa Gurracha Oromo Waliin!
