US Special Envoy Feltman to make last-ditch effort to save TPLF

ADDIS ABABA, JANUARY 06, 2022 – The United States Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa Jeffrey Feltman will be visiting Ethiopia today amid reports of his departure from his post as a Special Envoy to the Horn.

Fetlman has become very unpopular among Ethiopians due to his attempt to reinstate the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) back to power. Today's visit marks the Special Envoys last attempt to rescue the infamous TPLF which was designated terrorist group by the Ethiopian Parliament in May 2021 along with its partner Oromo Liberation Army (OLA).

Unlike Fetlman, Ethiopians including the government does not see the TPLF as a force for good especially after its fighters recently massacred thousands of civilians, raped women and destroyed thousands of civilian infrastructures in Amhara and Afar without taking into consideration the atrocities it committed during its brutal 27 year rule on Ethiopians.

Feltman’s approach as a Special Envoy was manipulative and full of threats. In his November speech, he threatened Ethiopia that it will go down in a 20 year civil war unless it comes into terms with the TPLF.

Nevertheless, Ethiopia said it will happily welcome Feltman as he makes his last visit to the country on the eve of the Ethiopian Christmas.

Dr. Legesse Tulu, Government Communication Services Minister, said his country will welcome and discuss with Feltman as long as what he presents is beneficial to Ethiopia and does not interfere with Ethiopia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Reports indicate that as a replacement to Feltman, David Satterfield will take the post of Special Envoy to the Horn of Africa. David Satterfield was a US Ambassador to Turkey who was declared persona non grata in October 2021 for meddling in the internal affairs of the country.

EXCLUSIVE: The Malinowski Bill Is Humanitarian Imperialism At Its Most Malicious

America’s humanitarian imperialism has always been malicious, but ESPDA stands apart from everything other than NATO’s War on Libya as being among its cruelest form. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst The “ Ethiopia Stabilization, Peace, and Democracy Act ” (ESPDA), popularly known as the “Malinowski Bill” after one of the congressmen who introduced it, doesn’t support either stabilization, peace, or democracy. Rather, it’s the most malicious form of humanitarian imperialism short of a Libyan-like all-out war. ESPDA has mostly been reported to concern sanctions against individuals who the US determines to have either imported “restricted” military equipment, impeded the flow of humanitarian assistance, and/or have been involved in “genocide”, “war crimes”, and “crimes against humanity”. There are several other provisions though that haven’t received all that much attention but definitely deserve to be more widely discussed. The first to touch upon concerns the U

EXCLUSIVE: Dr. Tedros’ Misconduct Defiles The WHO & Disrespects His Compatriots

This objective observation alone should be enough to relinquish him of his duties. The longer that he remains in his role, the worse that the WHO and its UN parent organization’s reputation will become. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs filed an official objection to the misconduct practiced by World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. They drew attention to how he’s consistently abused his high office to meddle in his homeland’s internal and foreign affairs. He’s also accused of continuing to remain a member of the terrorist-designated TPLF that’s responsible for bringing untold suffering upon millions of people in northern Ethiopia as a result of the war that it started in early November 2020. Furthermore, the objection details other examples of Dr. Tedros’ misconduct. For instance, he’s accused of inflating the emergency level in Ethiopia in order to warrant a humanitarian interven

EXCLUSIVE: Why Is The US Politicizing Ethiopia’s Reported Drone Capabilities?

America is concerned that it’s lost its prior monopoly on drone technology due to recent Turkish, Chinese, and Emirati advancements in this industry, all three of whom US-led Western Mainstream Media reports have claimed are supplying the ENDF.  By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst All states have the sovereign right to ensure their national security interests, especially in the domestic dimension, through whichever means they deem necessary so long as their moves are responsible and don’t contribute to regional instability. Ethiopia is no different, which is why it’s concerning that the US has suddenly decided to politicize its reported drone capabilities. Reuters exclusively reported that Horn of Africa envoy Jeffrey Feltman discussed the issue of suspected Turkish drone sales to Ethiopia during his latest trip to that West Asian country. According to the outlet, American officials have “profound humanitarian concerns” about Ethiopian-Turkish military cooperati
