How many enemies do we have to fight? It looks and feels daunting and propels self-doubt, unsure whether we could defeat them all, engaging us in military and psychological warfare. But we will as those before us jannock paladins of the past did fighting for the truth and justice; but it will be tough and testing.
The world witnesses young, old, men, women, including livestock killed strewed in the streets blood covered, and yet the likes of China, Russia and India expressed such crimes as internal matters they would not lean support and condemn the perpetrators.
But what do we expect from these countries who themselves have trespassed the rule of law and denied their own citizens both in the past and present. The three counties are the product of empires who share the same lust for land, resources, and slave labour as the Amhara’s do in our neck of woods.
Just before the Chinese Revolution, does not mean things have changed any better now, the warlords mutilated the insteps of young girls as long feet was regarded unattractive risking a lack of opportunity to join the Harim the warlords possessed to choose from for a night’s pleasure. A society infused with such cultural decadence would not be bothered about women being raped in Africa so long they the continent is a soft ground money to generate.
China also has the history of oppressing ethnic minorities to strictly observe the rules of the opposing masters. The entire Moslem community residing in the northwest is still constantly harassed and persecuted just for being believers of Islam. They are systematically and crudely indoctrinated to change their religion using the cover of fighting terrorists, a blanket excuse to deny the rights for being a Moslem as a divine right one is entitled to exercise.
China is currently actively engaged to de franchises the people of Hong Kong and Taiwan to exercise their rights for self-determination
Considering all these what do we expect china’s position would be when it comes to Tigray which is under blanket if terror?
The Russians too is the guardians of a remnant empire of the past, after losing Estonia, Belarus Latvia and Lithuania, it is fighting tooth and nail to keep Chechnya and claim land from Ukraine it occupied using settlers.
Likewise India’s hands are equally bloodstained. Leave aside its cast system where the untouchables have remained but just that – untouchables second class citizens living at the margins picking cramps of morsels. India is also worried that recognizing and objecting human rights abuse would question its control of Kashmir against the will of the people.
There is a theory in Economics: “The Paradox of the Thrift”. The more you want to save, the less you end up saving.
These three countries are all over the world looking for quick money to climb the ladder to be world powers. But they will never reach and realize their dreams. Money and guns alone will not enable us to gain supremacy. One needs to have integrity to win the minds and pockets of humanity. They may run by tantivism but will not cross the finish line and beat the incumbent unless humanity is behind the cause and render support.
They are the victims of their own schemes. They will short-change, swap positions as it feels suits. The EPRDF introduced China to Africa in good faith and look what China did in return?
Tigray will overcome and prevail regardless these schlockmeisters close door deals to denying it just cause to live in peace!
