Gathering the massacres committed by the ENDFs may remind us of the scope of the human suffering, the scale of the war and the depth of the malevolence (ca.'Choose - I kill you or rape you') of the ENDFs and the ingenuity and mercilessness (ca.'save yourselves') of their evil acts. Any particular case of massacre or rape or other war crimes that you encounter on the media is only a part, a small one, of a carnage that has lasted for five months.
The prime minister is emphatic that he was forced to wage war after the Tigray region launched a surprise attack on the Northern Command. Yet there is a preponderance of evidence that the prime minister ordered an offensive on the Tigray region before the Northern Command incident.
One of the weapons Abiy Ahmed is lies, grandiose lies. (I call him homo mendacious for the same reason). The following excerpt debunks one of his biggest and most frequently told lies: That the war started because TPLF attacked the Northern Command. The truth is that Abiy and his mentor, Isaias, the architect of the war, had long planned it.
Now it is clear that this whole thing about the attack on the Northern command is justan Anti-Tigray alliance,which was in the making for the last three decades and strategically organized in the last three years. This was realized by the pseudo ‘peace pact’ with Eritrea, which only wanted to sandwich Tigray between two mortal enemies (Eritrea and Amhara) and then finish it off.
When Tigrayans realized that this was a coordinated effort and that they were outnumbered, they fled for the fields where the tall crops could provide temporary refuge. The injured Amhara gangs remained in town and sought medical care for their wounds.
