UN Somali “Surge” vs. Al Shabab Expansion

“Damn those Al-Shabab, Damn all those ungrateful Somalis! has become the West’s not so silent Lament,”  Thomas C Mountain

By Thomas C. Mountain,

UN Monitoring Report on Eritrea vis-à-vis the Goldstone Report

Judge Richard Goldstone retracted several conclusions of his UN Investigative report that accused Israel of war crimes in Gaza due to some flaws in the report and the enormous pressure that followed from influential lobbying groups

By Kiflu Hussain,

Long before the Wikileaks cable came out to disclose further information to the gullible world including about the diabolical nature of the regime of Meles Zenawi, I maintained that the regime is capable of bombing its own people and blame it on phantom ‘terrorists’ for two purposes: To crackdown on legitimate opposition groups, critiques and dissidents; as well as by posturing as an ally on the “war on terror”, to sought and got favor from the west.

One doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to arrive at this terrible conclusion. Nor was there any need for an elaborate scheme of espionage that led to “clandestine reporting” as Vicki Huddleston, an American diplomat in Ethiopia at the time, had it, according to Wikileaks. However, the regimes behavior of planting bombs and blaming its opponents was an open secret between Ethiopians. Continue reading

West Funds Full Blown Genocide in Ethiopia

As many as 6 million people are starving in Ethiopia’s Somali-populated Ogaden. Children are the most vulnerable

By Thomas C. Mountain,

As the U.N. famine warning center issues urgent reports that millions of Ethiopians are once again starving in the Somali populated Ogaden, the International Committee of the Red Cross publishes a statement that the Ethiopian government has denied the Red Cross an operating permit to carry out relief work in the region.

Blocking the Red Cross from relief work somewhere is almost unheard of yet, when it comes to Ethiopia – headed by the G-20 “statesman” Meles Zenawi – this is business as usual.

For the past four years all aid agencies, including the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders and U.N. relief agencies, have been blocked by the Ethiopian military from feeding starving people in Ogadenia. There are millions of starving people, maybe as many as 6 million, though no one can say for sure because no one is allowed into the region. Continue reading
