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

UN Starves a Million Somalis on 10 Cents A Day

A million dollar a day for the War but only 10 cents a day to feed the victims of that war.

For UN and US, such a catastrophe is nothing but business as usual

By Thomas C. Mountain,

The UN announced its budget for feeding the over one million Somali refugees under its care for the next year and have allocated less than 10 cents a day to do so.

Anthony Lake, once nominated to head the CIA, now UNICEF supremo, held a press conference in April 2012 to declare a budget of $35 million for the next year to feed the Somali refugees in its care, over one million and growing by the dayContinue reading

Feeding Death Squads; UN’s World Food Program in Ethiopia

“…Why do Ethiopians even bother to vote between their lazy leaders when they should actually be voting between WFP and USAID, because ultimately they’re the ones providing them with most of the public goods.”

Food aid blocked from reaching the over 10 million Ogaden Somalis. WFP remained silent to become an accomplice in the genocide.

By Thomas C. Mountain,

While southern Ethiopia and the Ogaden continues to suffer from the worst drought and famine in 60 years the UN’s World Food Program (WFP) has been turning over all its food aid for the region to the Ethiopian military which uses it to feed the paramilitary death squads conducting a counterinsurgency in the region.

The crimes committed by the UN in the Horn of Africa are legion and the WFP is not new to using its aid as a weapon against the people of our region (see WFP; Angel of Mercy or Angel of Death). Continue reading

Kenya to Lobby Eritrea over Sudan – S.Sudan Oil Dispute

To get Eritrea's full support and participation in regional efforts for peace and stability, it’s important to honor its full membership participation in the regional grouping. If not, do not ask!

By TesfaNews,

At a time when international diplomatic negotiations at the level of AU, UN, UK and US officially failed to resolve the deadlock over the oil dispute between Sudan and South Sudan, Kenya, after assuming the current IGAD chairmanship, quietly starts a new but dubious mediator role by waving the IGAD flag.

In the face of previous high-profile diplomatic failures, IGAD needs the support of all its member states to succeed, including Eritrea, a founding member and key regional player. Continue reading

Eritrea: Guilty Before Proven Guilty

UN should resort to sanctions when there is compelling evidence to security threats and after all diplomatic efforts exhausted. But why non applied to sanction Eritrea?

By Haile Habtegaber,

It is to be recalled that on 23 December 2009, the UN Security Council passed a resolution sanctioning Eritrea founded from unsubstantiated allegations and lies blaming it is supporting insurgents in Somalia and other unfounded assertions.

However, what is beyond belief is the conspicuous dearth of factual verifiable incriminating evidence. Nowhere in all the pertaining deliberations of this case, is it possible to obtain unmistakably and publically accessible citations which Eritrea is in violation with respect to the chaos and disorder in Somalia? Continue reading
