Ethiopia, Egypt pledge more troops for Darfur

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia and Egypt will each send 850 troops early in the new year to serve with a joint United Nations-African Union force in Sudan's Darfur region, an AU official told Reuters on Monday.

AU troops in Darfur were swapping their green headgear for U.N. blue berets on Monday as the joint force formally takes over peacekeeping duties from the all-African peacekeepers.

The worthless woyane is sending innocent kids everwhere to show that it belong to international community. The fact of the matter is Woyane is is a group of badits that poised in terriozing the Ethiopian people. It does not have a mandate to send troops anywhere.

I wonder if Egypt is sending her troops for a genuine contribution to AU’s blue helmet army, or a bunch of spies to pass on the movement of UN’s movement in Darfur Sudan, to the government of Sudan, decoded under the blue helmet.

These TPLF troops are known, not for peace keeping, but for raping, none judiciary killing, and terrorizing the innocents. And it happend in different parts of the Ethiopian empire, and also during their previous so called “peace keeping” mission in Ruwanda/Burundi, and Liberia. Many of them had to be kicked out and sent back from those missions.

Not only that, but the comment from one of the UN mission leaders in Ruwanda - ” the Ethiopians (TPLF soldiers) are ill trained, ill equiped, and undicipilined” .

DOWN WITH WOYANE!!!!

Thats good, Ethiopia is playing a crucial role in peacekeeping. It played a leading role in peace keeping
mission in Rwanda, Burundi, Sieraleon, and now in Sudan. WE are proud of our troops, its shows the military capability and dedication of our troops, our troops are disciplined and know how to operate under difficult circumstances irrespective of the terrain, climate and cultural, religious and language barriers. VIVA EPRDF/ETHIOPIA.

This is good for Darfur to get internationally experienced Ethiopian soldiers. Their peace keeping duties was much heralded in Liberia. Ethiopian troops were much liked as they were very disciplined and very helpful. This is also good for Ethiopia as it beefs up its status as Africas peace maker, to the chagrin of Eritrea, and its allies: CUD, OLF, ONLF, Yarbegnoch Ginbar etc.

Other benefits to Ethiopia includes giving the fighting soldiers a chance to size up the army of its sworn enemy, Egypt (It is the Nile stupid !). A third benefit is the high salary of the peace keepers would be a benefit to the defense forces of Ethiopia and their families. Good job Meles, it seems that you have not lost sharpness after 17 years in power. Keep working for Ethiopia.

TO BOXOO,

Your tribal haterade to the galant and intelegent people of Tigrai is intolerable. You even call the Ethiopian army the TPLF army. Why so much hate? Why so much propoganda which you know not to be true but you know that nobody believes it to. It is your Shoa culture. You are a victim of it. You grew up hating everybody, jelous of everybody suspicious of everybody, oromay you will never change. Last time a friend of my told me that how Ethiopia would prosper and live happily only if the Shoans succeed from the rest of Ethiopia. Unfortunatly I critisize my government for puting you with the Amhara region. Except language you have nothing in common with, say, Gonder or Gogam. You dont even look like them. You look like more from South Sudan and Central Africa where you originally came. If you dont believe it read the slave trade in Shoa. Good examples are Mengistu and Menelike who was born from a slave. More than that you have this ugly pagan names like Debelalkachew, Shenabachew, Irabachew etc.

Happy New Year to our defense forces, and to their commander in chief, Meles Zenawi. Happy New Year to the Great and Noble Ethiopian people.

Peace to Ethiopia, Peace to Somalia, Peace to Eritrea.

Boxoo: where did you get the information that, the Ethiopian solders being kicked out off their peace keeping missions duty from Rwanda?. The last time I read and heard, Ethiopian peace keeping solders under the blue helmet army were praised and received an honorary medals, for an outstanding service to the international community services. You are a pathological layer.
