An Ethiopian and Susan Rice Semiannual Ritual at the UN Security Council

This May 2009, six hours long private meeting between Zenawi and Rice was the genesis of their ill-gotten, evil agenda of sanctioning Eritrea hatched.

By Bereket Tecle,

Once again this July, the chairman of the so-called U.N. Somalia Eritrea Monitoring group (Matt Bryden), US Ambassador to the UN (Susan Rice) and PM of the genocidal minority regime in Ethiopia (Meles Zenawi) have begun what they have been doing for a while; a joint semiannual ritual at the UNSC.

The goal is to undermine, ridicule and despoil every Eritrean institution, its people and its leadership. It has been obvious when it comes to Eritrea and the Eritrean people, no road is too low or no lie is too bold for the TPLF-run regime in Ethiopia. Continue reading

How the UN is Used to Destroy African Sovereignty

“No nation in the world can forward its interest alone or through the UN if it does not serve the interest of the US. It is US interest or no interest.”

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

It is impossible to try to put in layman’s language the way United Nations (UN) works. To understand it, one need to explore the core values, the purposes the organization bases its foundation, and compare it to how it is functioning currently.

The UN was established by the United States in collaboration with England at the height of Second World War. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill spent a great deal of time in Washington crafting the language and the framework for an organization that has become a major tool to further the agenda of Western nations led by the US.  Continue reading

Is Libya the Next Somalia?

Al-Qaida offshoot in Libya hopes to turn Africa’s Sahel region into a ‘new Somalia’

By Thomas C. Mountain,

Libya seems well on its way to becoming the next Somalia, with much of the country already ruled by tribal/clan based armed militias. As was the case in Somalia, Libya is in the process of separation, with the eastern, oil rich, Cyrenica region having issued a de facto declaration of independence.

Tripoli, the capital of Libya, seems to be headed in the direction of where Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia was 20 years ago, with various well armed militias from outside the city taking up residence and clashing over territory and the spoils of power.  Continue reading

African Union turned into Handmaiden for Pax Americana

The aftermath of AU’s betrayal to Africa, particularly to Eritrea and Somalia is there for all to see.

By Sophia Tesfamariam,

Professor Ali A. Mazrui, Director of the Institute of Global Cultural  Studies and Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities State  University of New York, in his 2003 article “Between Pax Americana and Pax Africana“, wrote about the effects of the September 11 attacks on Africa and US policy in Africa . Professor Mazrui, in concluding his article asked the following:

“…will American resources help to strengthen Pax Africana, or will American power simply turn it into a handmaiden of Pax Americana ? How can we avoid the Americanization of Pax Africana ?…”

Hence the title and subject for today’s lengthy piece… Continue reading

Eritrea Dismisses US Sanctions on Shabaab-linked Suspects

US froze US-based assets of Col. Tewolde Habte Negash and Col. Taeme Abraham Goitom?!?!? … LOL

By Capital FM,

Eritrea on Saturday denounced as unfounded US sanctions imposed on two Eritrean government officials accused of links to al-Qaeda affiliated Somali rebels.

They had been targeted “not because there is a shred of truth or material evidence to the false accusations heaped upon them” but because the US wanted to give the impression it was tightening its sanctions, said a statement.  Continue reading

Eritrea: The Perfect Scapegoat for Somalia Debacle

Amb. Susan Rice – A lady behind all the cock-and-bull stories against Eritrea

By E-SMART,

Yesterday the U.S. Treasury Department froze the assets of two Eritrean government officials ostensibly because “The United States is determined to target those who are responsible for the ongoing bloodshed and instability in Somalia,” said Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Director Adam J. Szubin. This begs the question: Who is responsible for the bloodshed and instability in Somalia? Somalia has been without a government since 1991. Continue reading
