China has lent Ethiopia $500 million

China has lent Ethiopia US$ 500 million that will be used to fund various development projects in the Horn of Africa country.

Source: Africa Report

The loan agreement signed with the Chinese Export and Import Bank was part of the deals struck during Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi’s ongoing visit to China, which started last Thursday.

Ethiopian Finance and Economic Development Minister, Sofian Ahmed who signed the agreement with his Chinese counterpart said the loan will be used to implement 15 development projects.

“The projects to be implemented have already been finalised and will be discussed with the Chinese government,” Ahmed said.

Meles is visiting China to encourage Chinese investors to consider setting up businesses in his country and also to scout for loans to finance development projects.

Ethiopia recently launched a multi billion five year Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) that will see the implementation of various development projects aimed at fighting poverty and reducing unemployment.

Under the five year GTP, the government, among other plans, seeks to invest billions of dollars on hydro electric plants, fertiliser factories, the development of universities and the construction of around 2,000 kilometer railway lines, as well as thousands of kilometres asphalt roads.

The government recently launched US$ 5 billion hydro electric projects, expected to generate around 5,250 MW of power by 2015, over the Nile River.

Ethiopia has already started power supply to Djibouti and is also planning to start exporting power to Sudan (North) before the end of the year.

The Horn of Africa nation plans to become Africa’s biggest power supplier.

China has given Ethiopia about US$4 billion in loans that have gone towards telecommunication infrastructure and road projects among others.

More than 20,000 Chinese area already working in various development projects around the country.

Thanks for correcting all the deceiving government news headlines that says “China Gives Ethiopia $5oo min USD.” They trying to give the impression that Meles went to China to get $500 mil for nothing.

Members of the alien imposed federation of secession in Ethiopia always seem happier when receiving large hoards of development aid from wealthier countries, because they know it will be used to maintain their economic dominance which is being used to support their political repression of the Ethiopian poor majority. The alien puppets are living an illusive dream thinking that their enterprise of corruption and oppression can continue without any hindrance. The other neo-colonial donors of the U.S.A, UK and the E.U are all indebted to China yet their economic model is totally unsustainable, The consumers of China’s goods in the U.S.A and Europe are responsible for China’s economic growth, now these consumers are less well off so it will affect China’s economy which the alien puppets of the regime in Ethiopia thought would be their life-line once the economic models in the U.S.A and Europe collapse. Wall Street is Tumblin’ and crumbling away, International markets are feeling the heat including China, neo-colonialism is burning away, Babylon a burn!

“Neo-colonialism today takes two forms: economic and political. We recognize that economic dominance is not only often the more difficult to eliminate, but often serves as the entering wedge for political domination. We further recognize that, given the history of our continent, and the conditions under which we came to freedom, it is not unusual that, despite our best efforts, the economic independence which we seek is long and difficult in coming. Long-established patterns of trade are not easily or quickly reoriented. Let us not delude ourselves in thinking that these facts, for such they are, are of no significance for the future of Africa. But let us, at the same time, toil with all our strength to alter them.
When we consider political neo-colonialism, our desires, although perhaps no less difficult of attainment, are at least easier of articulation. We seek to avoid a rigid and inflexible posture which prejudices our position on major issues before the world. We seek to avoid alignment, to achieve true non-alignment. Our late good friend, H.E. Prime Minister Nehru of India, put it thus: ‘The only camp we should like to be in is the camp of peace and goodwill.’” Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 269-70

“The fundamental obstacle to the realisation of the full measure of Ethiopia’s agricultural potential has been, simply stated lack of security in the land. The fruits of the farmer’s labour must be enjoyed by him whose toil has produced the crop.” Selected speeches of HIM Negus Haile Selassie I, pages 492-3

“The aim of those leaders that is based on ambition for power and personal gain is one with no firm foundation and will, consequently, crumble easily.” Selected Speeches of HIM Haile Selassie I, page 471

“Every structure must be built on a solid foundation, for those constructed otherwise would soon collapse. The proclamation by which We made land grants to the entire Ethiopian people is the foundation of this scheme. Recipients of land grants as well as those who had previously owned their own holdings do not by the mere owning of such land satisfy the requirements. They must make proper use of the land not only for their own benefit but as well to that of the people– We shall not permit any land to lay fallow.” Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 487

“Man can only begin an enterprise, it is for God to dispose of it to a good end.” Selected Speeches of HIM Haile Selassie I, page 391

Long Live the Constitutional Monarchy!
Long Live African Unity!
Long Live the charter of the United Nations!
Fire burn down the neo-colonial regime of the alien imposed federation of secession
Rise with the Lion of Judah!
Gasha for Ethiopians!
Long Live Independent Ethiopia!

So China LENDS $500 million to Zenawi, now what? If billions of dollar in FREE aid didn’t make a slight difference, what good is 500 million loan?

We all know where this so called national DEBT will end up. Offshore A*ame accounts, be used to recruit & deploy more cadres and will be wasted on barren land and dry hills of Tigray. After all the talks of Tigray development, go and see what 95% of Tigray looks like, Armageddon.

Pufff…, 50 Mln $ is nothing.
The World supper power(current), America owed China more than $2,000,000,000,000,000.00
This amount will go up with interests.

Who is against China except the Western? No one! Even the Somali pirates do not mess with Chinese Ships.

*Just watch out, East Indian investors. They are always sleek and they put other Countries Government in trouble. Currently, one of their(Indian) Government is caught and charged with CORRUPTION. It’s in their blood, Indian and Jewish will never stop BRIBING and CORRUPTION.

For example, Jewish took most of Ethiopian historical Religious Scripts, Antiques, etc. Since the last FORTY Years. Just few Years ago, I was watching TLC(The Learning Channel), “Israel’s newly found scripts". But, amazingly the scripts are written in Ethiopian Alphabets(in GEEZ and AMHARIC). I was so shocked!!!

Meles and cronies keep telling us that our economy is growing by double digits. They tell us that poverty will be history in just five years. They tell us that Ethiopia will join the club of lower middle income countries in five years (only 4 years left wink wink). But the reality on the ground is completely different. For the last 20 years 3 to 5 million Ethiopians have been in a constant duel with starvation. Woyanes receive millions of dollars in the name of the starving people but nothing has been done to bring fundamental change to the lives of these Ethiopians.
Yes! Every woyane’s wealth has risen astronomically.
Yes! Lots of woyanes have become millionaires.
Yes! Poverty is a thing of the past for many Woyane cronies.
Yes! They spend millions of dollars every year buying new Land Cruisers and Station Wagons.
Each EPRDF official has more than two luxurious automobiles bought at the expense of starving Ethiopians. They spend millions in useless seminars and symposiums where they pay themselves thousands in the form of stipend and per diems. And yet they have no shame in begging in the name of these starving Ethiopians. What a disgrace!!!

Running to China:- It was not a random happening;rather,it is a call for save me!,save me! to a bigDad,China.Yes,indeed,having known that Meles Zinawi might get London’s and Washington’s pinch on both sides of his cheek and feel the pain for his deliberately induced famine to Ogaden and the rest of Ethiopia ,Zinawi took a cautionary measure and took a US$500 million loan in the name of Ethiopia which is now added to the already borrowed money in the amount of 4.85 billion dollars which leaves Ethiopia with a total of nearly five and a half billion dollar debt that Ethiopia will pay china.

Clearly the mob that invaded Ethiopia twenty years ago created social earthquake and as a result everything is crumbling to the ground.Whose country Zinawi is messing up anyway? This man,the mafiaboss and member of the crimefamily has no distinct identity and nationality;just enetered Ethiopia disguising as Ethiopians and never had left Ethiopia since then.Murder and robbery are his mastery and is a cronic addict to blood and Khat and prescription medicines.Sick on the head.

Of course,Meles Zinawi will use this borrowed money for illpupose that he had already in mind,for which he doesn’t care as only Ethiopians will always carry the burden and are responsible for collatoral damage that Meles Zinawi already caused and will definitely cause in the future,it is just a matter of time that this boss of the mob will leave Ethiopia completely bankrupted.

If one denounces Zinawi with table pounding ferocity for the ongoing crimes that Zinawi has been committing on all Ehtiopians,will the justice be blamed for the delay that Ethiopians make capture and bring Zinawi for a court trial?

Ethiopians,please join hand-in-hand in denouncing Zinawi,the criminal for deliberately creating A WHOLE NEW KILLING ZONE.Working together as a team,the mobs are looting and murdering Citizens allover the country;it all began twenty years ago.Time favoured the robbers and invaded Ethiopia;they then scattered accross the country and moved into villages,towns,cities,and neighbourhoods and broke into homes and vandalized the lives of families.Cruel by nature,also the robbers found it important to sell farmlands and babies to international marketers and export little girls and young women to customers in the Middle East and build up wealth with the profit made.

Please,be ready for a rally.

I once had a conversation with a palace offical of The Emperor. He was telling me how an old lady, niece of the Emperor, was constantly bugging him about the loans he was recieving from outsiders. Her name YeshashWork Yilma. The official told me she kept on saying, “Ye Ethiopia hizbe be tseguru lek beder beder beder becha, whuala mekefel sicheger ekko agerachenen yewosdubenal.” It might sound naieve, but the little old lady had it right. And mind you, what Haile Sellasie borrowed in forty years is a fraction of what was lent from the Chinese in one day.
First, they lend you money. Then, they grab your land to farm and feed their own. Third, they will take over all aspects of your life. Its been done many times in many countries before. But our forefathers knew that very well. That is why they kept our independence, our freedom, always suspicious of outsiders. Most of all, I do not trust the Chinese, one bit.

On the picture, the way he is giggling,
He looks like a lender who eventually
Is going to make money of off the loan.
The fact is, he Is going to be in bigger
trouble paying the Interest on the loan.
The reason is obvious, his export revenue
Or his foreign currency reserve can not
Support the loans he Is signing everyday.
Mind you they didn’t even give him the normal
Grace period atleast five years until he generates
Revenue. Is it because they new he Is going to stash
It somewhere quickly? Who knows the Chinees
Are smart.
I suggest to the giggling dude that he better
Study Berny madoff’s ponzi scheme 101
That way he can pay his interest loans
From another loan,only until he get caught.
By the way, did he forget to brush his teeth?
Just curious.

Both may luck what western say human rights, but both are working hard to eradicate severe poverty and problems in their country. So as an Ethiopian or as a human being, we must appreciate this And as a Moron or as a 15 century ppl we can claim it as a deal b/n individuals and as their is no governemnt in Ethiopia which has been governing 80 million ppl with a diversified and underdeveloped society.

Not so long ago, Americans used to travell to china to lecture the chinese about marketing economics. But now these days things have changed, and Americans are seeking some advise how to straightend out their own messed up economy from the chinese themselves, including this week’s trip of VP Joe Biden to Beijing.
The chinese have been impressed by the Woyanes handling of every financial matter and in general the Ethiopian govt’s smart way of adminstration, and hard work.
As a matter of fact, they believe Woyanes and Gurages are the long lost cousins of china. Where did the lazy-ass crybaby dispora amharas come from anyway???

Its either “tera sidib” like the Agazi countess above, or they simply regurgitate what they see on ETV/Aiga etc. Like those countless during Soviet days. Comrade Stalin built x dam, Comrade Stalin defeated x army, Comrade Stalin brought countless advancement to the Soviet people, this year the bumper crop has increased food production five fold, yadi yada a long chorus of lies. For me whenever I see ETV, its so striking how similar the language and the propaganda with Izvestia/Pravda.

It is obvious you were disturbed by my comment of truth which is why you’ve replied with typical alien propaganda.

“Honesty means not to oppress anybody and deny him his deserved share. It does not mean being irresponsible or conceited and dictatorial. We, on Our part, will never cease to eliminate conceitedness, oppression, subversion and corruption in order to maintain peace and national security.” Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 393

“The soldierly qualities of self-sacrifice and discipline are best tested and demonstrated in the ordeal of fire. Today reveals that you possess these qualities in abundance and, even more important that the inherent courage and valour of the Ethiopian fighting man courses through your veins.
We take pride in reminding you that the tradition of Our Imperial Body Guard has been to follow unquestioningly the call of duty and to laugh in the face of death. To you who now take the place of those who have gone before you falls the sacred task of upholding this noble and glorious tradition.” Selected Speeches of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, page 605

Good seeing you too, yeah you’re not alone in noticing how retarded the new breed of geTaTa cadres are. Although to be honest I don’t expect more from the other side either, save a few and the rest is just as dumb as the cadres can get, it’s a shame to see nazret housing name callers and brainless idiots called Ethiopians, whose actions are only prolonging Ethiopia’s suffering by indirectly helping that cancerous bunch of evils helming the country. Ever wonder where Ethiopia would be if it wasn’t for weyanes being inherently evil at all times standing up to defend any one’s but Ethiopia’s interest for the last couple of decades? I wouldn’t worry though wedqen anwedqim confident that by the grace of GOD Almighty we shall shake weyane off our back plus I’ll never forget what Brooks once told me after visiting the more isolated parts of Ethiopia. Stay as much away as you possibly can from these imbecile monsters, am starting to believe that their nature rubs off at us in the long run, take care my friend.

@Agazi …

Obviously, you don’t seem to EITHER have the brain capacity to read, comprehend and analyze FACTUAL information and come up with some rational/logical comments NOR do you appear to have read a single FACT about Ethiopia’s heavyweight emperor Haile Selassie or the Tiny but MIGHTY nation of Jamaica for that matter.

All your unintelligent fallacy & baseless trash of information seems to have come from white supremacists blogs, negative western propaganda and MYTH from your illiterate, 1% high school level educated current Tigray society. Do you know Jamaica is a middle income country with majority living very comfortably?

Despite being a very tiny island compare to Ethiopia, with less than 3 million population (less than your Tigray population), Jamaica has by far the highest GDP compare to Ethiopia’s. Much higher annual export rate than Ethiopia, over 12 billion compared to Ethiopia’s under 3 billion, high access to education, health care, infrastructures, diverse FREE economy mostly service based like the western society, Free elections. Almost all Media is controlled by private organizations in Jamaica with no government interventions. Also Jamaica’s life expectancy is almost the same as USA/UK, well over 70 for both men and women and this is almost twice the average life expectancy in Ethiopia!

Jamaican’s who live in shanty towns are much better off than middle/high income Tigreans who live in TIGRAY as they have access to proper health care, electricity, telephone, computers, clean running water, well paved roads, beaches to chill out, enough schools to attained, well dressed, most importantly SURPLUS and variety of food to eat. All these despite Jamaicans being highly tested, tried people who suffered, endured enormously in the hands of slave owners, colonial powers for centuries. Let us not forget that Jamaica became free fairly recently and managed to prosper at a fast rate especially after more BLACK Jamaicans were put in charge from the 70s onwards and deterred Britain from looting.

You might scream Axumite Empire, free historical land etc. However, in the 21st century Jamaicans outsmart Tigrays in every possible way, be it socially, economically, intellectually, literature wise, arts, music, sports, global influence you name it. The people of Jamaica are very proud, strong minded, and conscious and they highly appreciate their African roots unlike you sellouts/bandas.

The irony is Jamaicans are 85% responsible for exposing and constantly bring up the Axumite Empire, Solomonic Dynasty and all Ancient Civilizations of Ethiopia globally. Jamaicans parade your civilizations, cultures, languages, unique alphabets, numbers etc in a positive light for your 5 million Tigray population NEITHER have the brain capacity, media outlet NOR the finances, technology, communication channels, global influence to challenge western media that actually have the audacity to officially brand Queen Sheba and arc of the covenant as MYTH recently. If it wasn’t for vocal, headstrong, historically aware, intelligent, well clued up, influential Jamaican population/society, your real history would have been all overshadowed by BBC, CNN’s propaganda portraying your country as nothing but famine zone.

… Lastly, according to Caucasian fallacy, which you seem to have grasped/mastered exceptionally well, all strong black nations/people including Ethiopia equate to nothing. Wake the hell up! This is 21st century, we all live in the information age and we are all a mouse click away from FACTS, aside from BBC, CNN, FOX news etc propaganda. You can even watch the breathtakingly beautiful Jamaican cities, towns, country sides; beaches LIVE on GOOGLE and compare that to your Armageddon Tigray. Er’m 95% Shanty town eh? You must be out of your mind.

The western media would have you believe 99.9% of Tigray and 80% of Ethiopia is starving, 90% of Jamaica represents drugs, gangs, murder, shanty towns, 95% of Nigerians are fraudsters etc. Although this is somewhat truthful as in food shortages in Ethiopia, anti social problems in Jamaica & clever thieves in Nigeria, the reality on the ground is much more different. The average 2000 murder committed in Jamaica annually is by far less than the average in the USA and elsewhere. In Ethiopia this figure could be well over 50,000 considering all the ethnic conflicts, government genocide etc. Same applies to drug and gang problems, shanty towns etc.

I suggest you zip your unintelligent mouth, adjust your brick head and stop talking out of your a$$. As they say “People in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones.” :)

Good observation on the new crowd of woyane cyber buchilas. These brainless cadres do not have the caliber to come up with objective and convincing comments. Rather they resort to character assassination and name calling. Like father like son

@Agazi …

As for King Selassie being a coward, never fought front line and abandoned his nation so that he could live comfortably in Europe, you must be middle aged person with a brain capacity of 7 year old! Here are some FACUTAL ACCOUNTS:

“Following the December, 5th, 1934 Italian invasion of Ethiopia at Walwal, Ogeden Province. Haile Selassie JOINED his northern armies and set up headquarters at Desse in Wollo province. He issued his famous mobilization order on 3 October 1935”.

“Starting in early October 1935, the Italians invaded Ethiopia. On 6 October, Italian honor was avenged when Adwa fell. But, by November, the pace of invasion had slowed appreciably and Haile Selassie’s northern armies were able to launch what was known as the “Christmas Offensive".

“During this offensive, the Italians were forced back in places and put on the defensive. However, by early 1936, the First Battle of Tembien (BANDA TIGRAYS) stopped the progress of the Ethiopian offensive".

“Following the defeat and destruction of the northern Ethiopian armies at the Battle of Amba Aradam, the Second Battle of Tembien, and the Battle of Shire, Haile Selassie took the field with the last Ethiopian army on the northern front". (The KING FOUGHT FRONT LINE YOU DUMB RETARD). “On 31 March 1936, King Selassie launched a counterattack against the Italians himself at the Battle of Maychew in southern Tigray. The Emperor’s army was defeated and retreated in disarray". (MOSTLY BECAUSE OF TIGRAY BANDA’S SUPPORT TO ITALY).

“As Haile Selassie’s army withdrew, the Italians attacked from the air along with rebellious Raya and Azebo tribesmen on the ground". (TIGRAY BANDAS AGAIN) “who were armed and paid by the Italians", FACT.

NOW, let us talk about your brave/RAS’s a little further eh?

• In 1935, Ras mengesha and Dejazmach G/sellassie of Tigray, the emperor’s son in laws by the way, became official TRAITORS and allied themselves with ITALY before the war was even started. FACT

• The Traitors/bandas from Tigray voluntarily invited Italians to occupy Ethiopia, allowed the Italians march to Tigray unchallenged. Traitors helped recruit soldiers from Tigray to the Italian army. As quoted above, the 1st Woyanes alongside with their Italian masters defeated the Ethiopian army in the battle of “Maychew", which eventually led to King Selassi’s exile, to try and diplomatically force the league of nations help Ethiopia, get rid of the Italians. FACT. If you read any pro or against literature written by Ethiopians or foreigners, all the facts that I stated are well documented. Only A*ames try to invent the wheel.

• After Ethiopia defeated Italy with the help of the Brits and King Selassie was reinstated, the Tigray bandas tried to cause Meyhem in Tigray trying to denounce the King.

The honorable King then ordered the Brits and the Ethiopian army to crush the rebellion which they successfully did. Little did the British realize that these same traitors helped them destroy Emperor Tewodros. FACT

• Yohannes actually “gave logistical and political support to the British forces who arrived to defeat Emperor Tewodros in 1868”. Yohannes was responsible for assisting the British, sneaking them to Gondar through Tigray and helped them destroy his OWN fellow Ethiopian Emperor. Not only he helped the British destroy Emperor Tewodros, he allowed them loot Ethiopia’s national treasures, kidnap Tewodros’s son for which he was massively compensated with gifts, ammunitions etc that he subsequently used to Dominate the region. “In gratitude, the British gave Dejazmach Kassai, the future Yohannes, a large number of modern firearms as they withdrew following their victory at Amba Mariam (also known as Magdala).

These are all well recorded, FACTS open for everybody to read if needs be. As much as I respect & honor Emperor Yohannes, first as an Ethiopian Emperor and second for his brave campaigns against Egyptian, Sudanese Islamic forces alongside with King Minilik, I am also not blind to his shortcomings.

I can quote much more factual evidence re his countless faults, failures and mistreatment of his fellow Ethiopians especially after he inherited ammunitions from the Brits. You can read his biography and much more diverse literatures available. Unlike your ignorant, narrow minded, disrespectful, distasteful, illiterate self, I wouldn’t brag about the very CRUEL and horrific manner that Emperor Yohannes lost his life and the way those Muslims paraded his skull all over town.

A*ames proved themselves to be untrustworthy, flaky, evil hearted, dark thinking back stabbers who are currently trying damn hard to distort Ethiopia’s history with their Shabiya cousins to NO AVAIL.

Your remarks about King Selassie’s death speak volumes about the kind of SAD, trashy, village idiot that you really are. Lastly, King Selassie’s BODY was NEVER recovered and his death still unknown. All “the fake buried under toilet” MYTH/propaganda was designed and orchestrated by Meles Zenawi & his masters the WEST.

The CIA/MI5 conspired with Meles as COUNTER ATTACK on the unprecedented new weave of thinking, black consciousness, Afro enteric movements, Israelites etc especially Rastafarianism spreading like wild fire and gaining momentum within the black as well as Caucasian societies, undermining the west hence fabricated such nonsense.

They failed to Perform DNA analysis on a bone they apparently claimed to be King Selassie’s, which was (That of a 6 foot man). In the 21st century, they told the world DNA analysis was unnecessary in order to spare king Selassie’s family further distress? Oh, yeah? And so these movements they tried to shame, disrupt, never bought A*ame/CIA’s well scripted drama and fake private funeral service conveniently broadcasted on BBC, CNN and FOX news :)

… And so, these movements still remain massive FORCES to be reckoned with and major headache to the CIA/MI5 by endlessly exposing all the atrocities, fake historical events, historic distortions, ethnic cleansing and expansionism, western hypocrisy, western secret societies, secrete biological warfare used to eradicate non whites (AIDS being prime example), theft of intellectual property from black, Arabs, Asians etc by whites.

These movements constantly expose western agendas i,e, the new world order, true accounts of September 11 and all the FACTS as well as conspiracy theories under the sun by using the very information systems Whites created for them!!

You urgently need to reeducate yourself away from your illiterate/banda grand fathers’ MYTH/Teret Teret

Amhara Princess,

I respect many of the things you say in here, but I also believe we have to be careful of the things we say. For example, I do not agree with what you said about Atse Yohanes. No matter what wrong he did, no other Ethiopian leader died at our country’s border like a common soldier. He could have sat at Gondar or DebreTabor, like the Mahdi did at Omdruman, on the other side and sent Ras alula and the others to fight the fight. But he has seen the thousands of corpses of the Gojjamaes left by the Derbush at Sar wuha, and could not reach Mettema fast enough to do what his country demanded of him. With regards of letting the British pass to fight Tewodros, don’t forget Tewodros did that to his own father in law Ras Ali. Menelik did it to Yohanes, Haile Sellasie to Iyasu. That is the way they used to ascend to power. What we have to look is what they did for the country as a whole not pick at a single event and judge them based on that alone.

With regards to Ras Mengesha and Dej G/Sellasie. For the former I think you meant Ras Seyoum, and the fact is he with Ras Kassa were the two main folks who conducted the Battle of Maychew. He went all the way to Djoubitti with the Emperor and returned from there. The latter, again you meant Dej HaileSellasie Gugsa, but his case is far more complicated. I once had a conversation with his sister Embet Kiros Gugsa, and I asked her about him. Everybody talks about his treason, but noone ever wanted to at least hear his side of the story. I wanted to do that. She talked for about half hour, a long list of things the Emperor did to him. He was blamed for the death of his wife, Zenebework. He was the only true son of Atse Yohannes, the rest are all nieces, nephews, or “natural” sons. The Emperor took many regions from him and gave to the other Tigrayan nobles. And that for them is like death. Remeber how those greats like Alula and Hagos died for little piece of land, or even those currently in power, on both sides of Mereb, did not blink to kill 100,000 for little Badame. That was a big no no on the Emperor’s side, and it was for that reason he cooeprated with the Italians. I reply back to his siter, thanking her for what she told me, but I also added that no matter what was done to him, he should not have worked with the enemies of Ethiopia, esp him being the only grandson of that great man, Atse Yohanes. She knoded large, she understood.

My dear, when the Italians wandered into our precious country, there were plenty who rushed to clean their ass. From Leul Ras Hailu of Gojjam, to Ras Kebede of Agew Meder, to Ayalew Birru of Gondar, to Abawukkaw Birru of Shewa and a long list of the priviledged who worked with the enemy. At the same time, those we love to call Banda’s from Eritrea, like Aqua Seleba walked all the way from Asmara, warned Ethiopians what was being cooked for them, and trained a whole regiment that fought bravely at Maychew. We all know what Abraha Deboch and Zerai did.

The point my dear, just because a handful of wild beasts called Woyanae and their “Tehadiso Bolshevic” nightmare is currently law, we should not just dance to it. If everything else fails, we have a right to say no. We should not cooperate by blaming a whole group of people and making the division that the beasts created even wider.

Be kind like the dove, wise like the

I fully appreciate your comments, corrections and very wise, intelligent advise Sir. It is just that when these Cadres become extremely vile, racist, vulgar and outright rude, you can’t help but counter attack.

I read about both wars with Italy, other battles and the endless local wars between Ethiopians themselves and the various Ethiopian Emperors, Ras’s etc from various sources. I am aware of what Emperor Yohannes and others did for their country, their strengths and weaknesses for there is no perfect man.

I read about bandas, Agazis etc and those who actually endlessly aligned themselves with the enemy, this includes TPLF aka EPLF’s right hand men. That is why when cadres want to be vile, they will get exactly the same response BACK. When they respect and talk about positive aspects, they will get the same. What I can NOT do is just read them trash everything Amhara as it became their norm especially since their near demise in 2005. For that they will get test of their own medicine.

… It doesn’t mean to say my response if fair or to the point but it is Just real accounts of events FACT, exactly what some of those Tigray, allies of the enemy did 100s of years ago and NOW as we speak. Does those traitors represent Tigray? Do those 1st weyanes and current Weyanes represent Tigray? That is for them to answer.

Unfortunately for them, the great Emperor they are currently too busy disrespecting(King Selassie), didn’t reign during the 4th century so his well recorded and very recent achievements/short comings can not be dismissed as myth.

Thanks again

NWO a western agenda? I thought western = white supremacy whereas NWO is the mainstream name for the agenda designed by and for “jewish” banking monsters, free masons, rockerfellers, rothchilds, the 13 families bla bla…aka devil worshiping ZIONISTS in which they will take over the world to fulfill the Biblical, Koranic and what not prophecies? Why else would they crush their own economy by creating one financial crises on top of another bankrupting western nations all over the world(bankrupt my feet if it wasn’t for the banking voodoo the financial system really is)? coincidence? Hardly! You don’t go around and burn your own house while planning to subjugate the whole world making planet earth a giant prison where every living creature is monitored from birth to death. Hence applying pure logic into this simple knowledge (awareness) => NWO = NOT western, just one ambitious UNGODLY and evil conspiracy where man (those running the show at least) challenges his CREATOR by becoming “god” as in Adam eating that etse beles to be like his all knowing CREATOR.

Amhara Princess,

Thank you, all I say is we should not throw away the baby with the water, just because the water is dirty. Many thanks.

First and for most let us all agree on one thing. We have to have one strong voice to remind China that current dictatorial government will go soon and China will follow the next morning. China should not well come to Ethiopia and to Africa in general as long as they are siding with inconsiderate dictators of Africa rather than with the people of Africa. China should get this message loud and clear in any means necessary before it is too late
we never allowed foreigner to get their way in our land before and will never allow.

Wow! If Nazret could excused being out of Topic, I am really being hyper and filled with high energy, when I read the above Great Ethiopian Historical comments.

As usual, I believe the Social side of Ethiopia, to united Ethiopians.

Can some of you please, create Ethiopian Social organization in North-America???

I believe, there are more talented and gifted Ethiopians who are being denied accesses for Educations and works. I did see it when and where the obstacles happened against Ethiopians.

Regardless of their colours and backgrounds, Foreigners are our enemies. They highlights our differences for their own advantages. We should be more careful.

We Ethiopians have much similarities. Lets use it.
