The second time political ‘love relationship’ between the tplf gangsters and Mohammed Siad Bare of Somalia’s political descedents took a form of Somali warlord in Ogaden region joining in hands with exiles of Somali origin individuals. They put on disgraceful demonstration show cases.
It is to be recalled that the late tyrant Meles Zenawi, Abay Tsehaye, Seyoum Mesfin… were aiding Bare’s invation of Ethiopia in the 1970s (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Somalia)
They were handsomely rewarded with resident permit in Mogadisho and Somali passport.
Altough Bare’s regime of 5 stars territorial claim was routed by Ethiopia’s armed forces in Solidarity with Cuban international support, nevertheless, the ofsprings of Bare’s ill-fated regime have resurfaced and are coordination their attack against Ethiopia through the tri-acess of Somali regional state in Ogaden, Ethiopia, and the TPLF regime in Ethiopia.
The slogan now is defending’ federalism’ and supporting Tigrean comradeship with the TPLF regime. The main tragets are Amhara -Oromo unity and Ethiopia’s territorial integrity at large. This is a futile and hopeless dream from the dying tplf regime.
Ethiopians will need to systematically expose this ploy against our democratic unity and our well-being!
