President Joe Biden is pursuing a dangerous policy of economic and political warfare against Ethiopia and its people. In an interview with Addis Media Network, on November 18, 2021, I argue Americans must fight against efforts for regime change in Ethiopia, and instead promote a policy for economic development. I identify that the so called mainstream media are not objective truth seekers, but part of the propaganda arm of the political-economic elite–an oligarchy. The United States and the West more broadly refuses to respect the sovereignty of Ethiopia and the elected government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
The enemies of Ethiopia will use humanitarian concerns as an excuse to potentially deploy military forces under the pretext of protection the Ethiopian people from their own government. This doctrine, known as R2P-the responsibility to protect- was created by businessmen George Soros and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Former ambassador Samantha Power and others in the Obama administration used R2P to justify the overthrow of President Ghaddafi and the destruction of Libya.
Ethiopia must be allowed to pursue its commitment to development and the elimination of poverty. We need a united Ethiopia, with a single conception of Ethiopian citizenry, not one based on ethnicity. This is Africa’s second most populous continent. Unfortunately, U.S. President, Joe Biden, does not understand the true interests of the continent, and is allowing his administration to be used against the people of Africa and Ethiopia. Ethiopian diaspora should be united in defeating regime and allowing Ethiopia to once again lead Africa along the path of economic growth.
