If there must be war in Ethiopia: A Response to Eskinder Nega

If there must be war in Ethiopia: A Response to Eskinder Nega

Over a month ago well-known journalist, political activist, and founder of Balderas political party,  Eskinder Nega, wrote a controversial article, from prison, on the ongoing war on Tigray that has been characterized by atrocities that fit the definition of genocide.  As a Tigrayan directly affected by the conflict, I decided to write my reflection using this article as a prism for understanding carefully disguised but implicit support of this war that wishes to present itself as neutrality.

In this article titled “If there must be war in Ethiopia…” Eskinder primarily discusses the lack of empathy currently seen in Ethiopia, the deep divide, and the war. Eskinder’s main message was summarized well with the last sentence:

If there must be war, let it be a war for peace, for love, a war to end war.

Eskinder Nega

The first thing we note is that Eskinder frames the war on Tigray as an “internal matter”. This is a key mischaracterization that reveals that far from being a disinterested and fair observer the author is committed to a perception of the war according to the dishonest propaganda promoted by the Ethiopian regime. It has long been established that including by the Ethiopian government that Eritrean troops had extensively taken part in the war, while reliable sources continue to reveal the extent to which Somalia troops and technical support from the United Arab Emirates in the form of drone warfare have featured in this conflict. Moreover, drone sales from China, Turkey, Iran, and Israel were reported. The persistent violations of humanitarian and human rights laws by the Ethiopian and allied forces have also necessitated the ongoing diplomatic intervention of the international community.

A second revealing element in this article is the false equivalence that it draws between the industrial-scale destruction and ongoing atrocities that have been inflicted on Tigray and the unfortunate expansion/eruptions of conflict elsewhere. What is particularly notable in this regard is that for almost all of the last year Tigray has been put under a complete telecommunications blackout, along with an economic siege and a humanitarian blockade revealing systematic and state-sponsored targeting of the civilian community. This, even as bodies continue to wash up in Sudan carried by the Tekeze river from Western Tigray and blood-soaked topsoil, satellite imagery, and smuggled out videos showed acts of complete impunity in which perpetrators spoke of the human flesh of their victims in an almost cannibalistic tone.

Another assertion made by Eskinder in the article is that the rallies, petitions, and other forms of advocacy have been one-sided. If, however, the primary aim is indeed to promote peace and peacefulness, calls to end the war can not be perceived as one-sided. Similarly, calling for military actors to abide by international conventions and humanitarian law or demanding independent investigations cannot be characterized as a partisan issue. Indeed if these calls from what Eskinder may see as pro-Tigray advocacy efforts had been heard, the current escalation of the war that has spread and affected more people would likely have not happened. 

Beyond these details within the article, the overall message of the article is my main reason for writing this reflection. 

Eskinder wrote this article from a prison cell away from the firing guns and the bombs dropping from the sky. As difficult as it is to imagine, those that were massacred, raped, and disabled can only wish to have been in a prison cell away from the Ethiopian Defense Force, Eritrean Defense Force, and Amhara special forces. History documents countless wars and one thing that is common to all is the fact that war brings destruction and the most vulnerable are the ones severely affected. Even if one is not directly affected by the war, there are indirect negative consequences of war on the larger population. Ethiopia’s economy is being crippled as I write this because of the war. There has not been any transparency on the cost of the war and its economic impact this far, but what we know is that, away from war, in the capital city Addis Ababa, families are unable to keep up with the high cost of living that keeps getting worse due to the war.

In conclusion, there is no holy war. War brings destruction and death. In a day and age when we have abundant tools that can solve any differences. The country now more than ever needs calls for peace and dialogue.

  1. same battlefields used to destroy the same enemy waiting in fifine and deberbirhane

    Astonishingly,TDF is crushing ENDF and Fanos in towns like Gashena, and Lalibela chosen as strategic battlefields on the account of their convenience and adaptability to new and former fighters within TDF. It is like to spend sometime in the field where you’re going to compete with your opponent , make yourself familiar with its environment and landscape , moving high and low , and setting up emotional fortress around you and snuff out muscles of enemies along with its hired foreign mercenaries. The same enemy is wiped out in the same battlefield which makes it easier for future battlefields and residents in the vicinity to feel the tense of the conflict and its impact lesser and lesser , less wave of internal displacement, minor civilian causalities unless they resist and cooperate enemies of nations and nationalities(=PP)

    Side effects of drones : Take Over: The worst case scenario is when drones or a fleet of drones has been commandeered or taken control by the enemy. While security measures help make this possibility more difficult, it will never be impossible. Is it possible for TDF to take control of drones or buy gadgets to accomplish this task ?

    Drones Saves Lives of the troops who use them : The most obvious advantage of military drones is that they greatly reduce putting military personnel in harm’s way or in combat. This is because a lot of these drones are unmanned and therefore there is no human life in danger.

    Drones are reducing the human causalities among ENDF , EDF and other evil forces, if ENDF hadn’t been equipped with drones and other sophisticated military machines, they might not have been so persistent in their attacks, and they would surely lose the battle long time ago on the account of massive casualties within short time than expected.

    “The report made recommendations designed to regulate their use and enhance accountability. It said at least 102 countries had an active military drone inventory, while around 40 possess, or were procuring, armed drones. Since 2015, at least 11 countries allegedly have deployed armed drones, including for the purpose of use of force, such as targeted killings. It also proposed that the UN secretary-general should set up international inquiries or fact-finding missions to investigate targeted killings by drones.”

    Twenty years later, drone technology has advanced at an extremely fast rate. Unmanned drones now vary in size from large insects to a 757 jet sporting 130-foot-wide wingspans. Most flying military drones are controlled via satellite, sometimes from as far as thousands of miles away, and are capable of providing real-time, 360-degree video, and radar data.

  2. Stop creating stories to incite hate against TDF which harms every Tigraway

    Day by day, people are inventing stories and spreading them on social media and YouTube channels like Deru Zehareru . It might be essential to remind the entire population about the statements made public by the government of Tigray and any political figure so far to help the entire people of Ethiopia, including pro-Tigray , understand the fact that no statements were made outlining the motives of TDF to enter finfine or move outside Tigray : only and only to bring war crime actors and perpetrators of genocide to justice, restore looted relics riches of Tigray . Many of those official statements were inviting nations and nationalities to stand with people of Tigray , and refuse the destructive callings of prosperity party for war and endless hostility. The reason why it is right to tackle suck kind of fabricated stories is that there are people, including the guy at deru zehareru named Engineer Mersha , who are misinforming the entire population as if TDF or Govt of Tigray(i;e entire Tegaru )are enemies of Ethiopia and Tegaru outside Tigray are helping a force that is marching to destroy Ethiopia.

    There is no any other connotation to fans of prosperity party when you say TDF is marching to destroy Ethiopia and painting all Tegaru supporters of TDF as standing with TDF who is fighting to destroy Ethiopia. However, contrary to the claims made by anti Tegaru, fans of prosperity party , including few amhara elites and rest Ethiopians who support Tigray, TDF and members of TPLF leadership repeatedly made official statements they are marching to finfine to bring war criminals to justice and bring stolen and looted relics and riches of Tigray . Misinforming people are inciting the population to wage war against Tegaru. Please stop it. NO official statement was made against Ethiopia, Ethiopians , Amhara or not even against any amhara political party but against any individual who participated in the war .

No Tigrean or Oromo need your satanic and crooked advice aimed at self-serving mission. If Tigreans have to investigate and condemn or change a regime, they do not want your advice. Hands off! No more Amhara , Oromo, Gurage, etc in Tigrean’s affairs . They decide their own fate and their own leaders. Tigreans are most civilized , cultured people , so need to seek advice from you damn bloody Arab and isayas slaves.
