Mareeg.com-With their army destroyed and their last, best troops wiped out in one
morning on the outskirts of their capital Mekele the last remnants of
the leadership of Ethiopia’s TPLF regime were forced to retreat to the
secret Hagarasalam underground bunkers near the capital. Built by the
notoriously paranoid and cowardly TPLF godfather Meles Zenawi, the
Hagarasalam bunkers were the bolt hole of desperation, a place to hide
through thick and thin of warfare in safety. No engineer that helped
build this secret underground bunker system lived to tell the story.
When their enemies, the Ethiopian army, surrounded them there the TPLF
mafia capos escaped through a secret 300 meter long tunnel and
literally headed for the hills, the nearest mountainside, to hide.
They broke up into two groups and tried to find what shelter they
could. Old, fat and desk bound for the past 30 years, they’re fighting
fit days of the 1980s guerrilla war were long gone. Without access to
food or water it was only a matter of time before their jig was up.
They were quickly spotted, surrounded and offered a safe surrender
which they spurned repeatedly. Then the onslaught started, first heavy
artillery bombardment, then worked over again by helicopter gunships.
When the final assault was done all that was left of the TPLF leaders
on that mountainside were pieces of bones and body parts.
As happened so often in the past the acrid odor of high explosives had
hardly settled when the winds carried the smell of fresh kill to their
dens where the hyenas had taken shelter from shot and shell. With
smoke still rising from craters in the mountainside, the hyenas,
“zibee” in Tigrinia, mother tongue of the TPLF, were out hunting their
dinner. With in a few days the site of the final hours of the TPLF
regime was picked clean and the only thing left of the bane of modern
Ethiopia was hyena skat spread across the mountainside.
This is no rumor, no “what might have happened”. This is what actually
took place and is an open secret here in Asmara and confirmed by first
hand accounts. I guess you could say this is the “unofficial” official
story. Or maybe it’s the official “unofficial” story?
What really matters is that the CIA’s oldest. largest, most successful
criminal operation in Africa came to its well deserved end. With the
TPLF, the most feared regime in eastern Africa, now gone for good
peace can break out and the long over due rebuilding of a independent,
self reliant, eventually prosperous Ethiopia can begin.
Once the Ethiopian people are free to raise their heads in pride and
start the hard work of feeding, housing and educating their people,
and their lives begin to finally improve, the rest of Arica will have
to take notice.
Ethiopia is potentially a wealthy country with trillions of m3 of
natural gas, billions of barrels of oil, rich deposits of minerals
lying in the pretty much unexplored Arab-Nubian geological shield and
rich agricultural lands and lots of water.
When a people who were once best known for famine and war better their
lives the rest of Africa have a “threat of a good example” that can’t
be ignored. Then the neo colonialists who dominate Africa under the
cover of the EU will no longer be able to plunder and loot our
continent, no longer be able to buy the support of their populations
with a rich lifestyle by bleeding Africa dry.
As Ethiopia begins to break the modern day chains of neocolonialism
expect their leader, Nobel Laureate Abiy Ahmed to be continuously
demonized in the western media. To see Africa’s sickest nation become
a modern successful example of African independence and self reliance
those bloodsucking western banksters and their lackey at the UN will
be hard put to stand aside and let their system inevitably come
crumbling down about them. For how can they continue as they have
without the stolen wealth of Africa, to bribe their people and prop up
their increasingly challenged regimes?
