Biden-Rice rules of the “ceasefire” con game The tactical approach to achieve the strategic goals is:
1) Give lip service to African Union mediation between the Government of Ethiopia and the terrorist TPLF.
2) Buy off African leaders to apply pressure on Ethiopia.
3) Use the AU as a weapon to pressure Ethiopia.
4) Seek observer and facilitator status during the ceasefire negotiations.
5) Offer to underwrite the entire negotiation process by pledging to commit funds.
Ceasefire is easier said than done
Biden (Susan Rice) talks about a ceasefire. But they are willfully clueless. With ceasefires, the devil is in the details, a fact that should be as clear as a day in hell to Susan Rice, the DUCHESS OF DARKNESS. Anyone who has studied ceasefires knows they are exceedingly complex processes with a near certain degree of failure.
The data is compelling. For instance, in Ukraine there were 4 ceasefires that led to new offensives. In Yemen, of 9 ceasefires 7 led to offensives. In Syria, out of 20 ceasefires, 19 led to new offensives. In South Sudan, between 2014 and 2020, there were numerous ceasefire agreements which failed leading to new offensives.
Biden and Susan Rice know full well the TPLF will honor no ceasefire agreements. Certainly, the Ethiopian Government knows as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow that for the TPLF agreement is not worth the paper it is written on.
Ceasefire agreements are a can of worms
Ceasefire negotiations and agreements are perilous and problematic issues. Ceasefires almost always fail because of complex issues related to
1) Command and control for ceasefire implementation;
2) Demobilization and disarmament of combatants;
3) Designation of independent monitors (agreement on which countries will supply monitors);
4) Rules of engagement;
5) Composition of verification teams;
6) Establishment of process for presenting breach of the agreement complaints;
7) Establishment of neutral and independent investigative bodies for breaches of ceasefire terms and conditions;
8) Modalities for the exchange of information by opposing forces on troop movement, training exercises and so on;
9) Integration of force elements from combatants; and
10) One-upmanship to take advantage of the each other’s political and military weaknesses, among others.
The fact of the matter is coming to a ceasefire agreement and implementing it will take many months (under the most idea circumstances), which will provide the TPLF an opportunity to rebuild its military capacity while handcuffing Ethiopia from taking action to eliminate the TPLF terrorist threat.
Let there be no mistake! The Biden administration is not interested in a ceasefire. It is interested in using ceasefire negotiations as a TROJAN HORSE to trick and bamboozle the Ethiopian Government into dropping its guard while allowing the terrorist TPLF to sneak into power stealthily.
It is interested in using a ceasefire to facilitate rebuilding and strengthening of the TPLF’s military might so that it can continue its terrorist war in Ethiopia until it is restored to power. The terrorist TPLF is not interested in negotiations. It is interested in using negotiations to buy time and destroy its opponents.
If there is a ceasefire, the TPLF will have to face the fire and fury of the people Tigray for the needless deaths of their children in a pointless war and the suffering they endured over the past 10 months!
I have demonstrated the TPLF’s 11 doctrines of “dialogue” and “negotiations” in my commentary, “Negotiating with the TPLF is Negotiating with the devil.” The fact of the matter is that the TPLF has always, always played zero-sum negotiation games. They must win negotiations 100 percent of the time. They sneer at good faith bargaining, negotiation, compromise and conciliation. Negotiation for the TPLF is about one-upmanship. It is about hoodwinking and crushing their adversaries.
Biden (Sleazy Suzie’s) Hail Mary pass with economic sanctions
Desperation is driving Biden’s (Susan Rice’s) policy in Ethiopia. Sleazy Suzie has run out of options. Sleazy Suzie has her man Friday Jeffrey Feltman running from the Emirates to Saudi Arabia to Djbouti and now to Turkey begging the leaders of these countries to pressure Ethiopia to negotiate with the TPLF terrorists. Nobody wants to talk to Feltman because everyone knows he is Sleazie Suzie’s gofer.
Sleazy Suzie is coordinating action in Congress to for a declaration of genocide. (Who gives a damn whether Biden declares genocide or not!) Biden and rice know they have crossed the red line on the green, yellow and red flag. That is what all the sanctions sound and fury is all about.
To paraphrase Shakespeare, Biden is… a walking shadow, a poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the world stage And then is heard no more: it is an economic sanction Issued against Ethiopia by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Sleazy Suzie has tried to use Biden to delegitimize the elections and PM Abiy’s leadership. It failed. Sleazy Suzie has tried to use the Western press-titutes to demonize and ostracize Ethiopia. It failed. Sleazy Suzie has tried to get the UN Security Council to sanction Ethiopia. She was laughed out of the hall. Sleazy Suzie has tried to bully, intimidate, threaten and harass the Ethiopian Government. It has failed miserably.
Now, Sleazy Suzie is threatening MOAS (Mother of All Sanctions).
In American football there is a game tactic called the “Hail Mary pass”. In the last seconds of a game, the quarterback (the player who directs the offensive game) in desperation will throw a long forward pass hoping to get a touchdown (make a score).
Biden’s Executive Order threatening economic sanctions the likes of which the world has never seen is that Hail Mary throw to miraculously bring the Ethiopian Government to the negotiating table with the terrorist TPLF. The Ethiopian Government will sit down and negotiate with the TPLF after hell freezes over and the TPLF devils go ice skating.
Joseph Biden: The White Horseman of the Apocalypse of Ethiopia Economic Sanctions
President Joe Biden, mounted on his white Horse threatens to visit economic apocalypse on Ethiopia. In John’s Revelation, the first horseman rides a white horse, carrying a bow and wearing a crown and riding for conquest. The White Horseman of the Apocalypse, the Great Deceiver, rides to conquer the earth crushing all who stand in his way in his insatiable lust for global power.
Joseph R. Biden is the White Horseman sent to Ethiopia the DUCHESS OF DARKNESS Susan Rice to conquer and plunder. Biden, the Great Deceiver knows Abraham Lincoln did not negotiate with the rebels that attacked a federal Fort Sumter in South Carolina. But he expects PM Abiy Ahmed to negotiate with the TPLF which attacked the Ethiopian federal fort in Northern Ethiopia.
Lincoln granted amnesty to the rebels after he defeated them. Mean Joe sheds crocodile tears for Haitians seeking refuge in America and ships them out before they receive an asylum hearing guaranteed to them under U.S. law. Yet, Biden castigates and condemns Ethiopia for creating a refugee problem.
Ethiopia today hosts well over a million refugees from neighboring countries. And the U.S. set a maximum limit of 62,500 refugees in 2021! Ethiopia does not mistreat and persecute refugees in its care.
Mean Joe has unleashed his Janjaweed (devils on horseback) on poor Haitian refugees. The Great Enchantress Susan Rice is the invisible had that tries to rock the cradle in Ethiopia. Rice’s original plan was to have a repeat of the Herman Cohen con game when in 1991 then Assistant Secretary for African Affairs Herman Cohen set up scam negotiations and swiftly installed the TPLF to power.
Rice’s blind commitment to the TPLF is incomprehensible. Could it be that Rice is going all out to help the TPLF because the TPLF scumbags have dirt on her? Could Rice be a victim of blackmail by the TPLF? That is a plausible hypothesis. For decades, Sleazy Suzie has been in bed with the TPLF.
The fact of the matter is that Biden and Rice are incapable of forcing Ethiopia to negotiate with the TPLF or kiss Uncle Sam’s **s. If the White Horseman of the Apocalypse of Sanctions believes he can break the will of Ethiopians and bring them to their knees, he should think gain.
After 20 years, the U.S. had to leave Afghanistan ignominiously at the tip of the pointy shoes of a bunch of fanatical terrorists. The White Horseman of the Apocalypse of Sanction should know strength comes from an indomitable will.
Strength does not come from possession of war planes, tanks and guns. In other words, it is not the size of the dog in the fight that determines the winner. It is the size of the fight in the dog. Goliath became David’s footstool. Ethiopians today are joining in arms to defend their country by the tens of millions. Their battle cry is, “Give me dignity or give me death!”
The spirit of defiance in the cause of Ethiopian dignity and sovereignty comes from our ancestors who kept Ethiopia free from white colonial domination and any other foreign domination for millennia. Our ancestors won against all odds because they had indomitable will.
At the UN on September 21, Biden said, “freedom, equality, opportunity, and a belief in the universal rights of all people are stamped into our DNA as a nation.”
Hear this, White Horseman of the Apocalypse of Sanctions. Defiance, determination, daring, sovereignty, dignity and audacity are the “Higgs boson” of our existence at the subatomic level!
The White Horseman of the Apocalypse of Sanctions economic war in Ethiopia could create hardships and challenges. It may even try men’s and women’s souls. But like gold whose true nature is revealed by fire, Biden and the West will see Ethiopia rise up, shine and shimmer, and claim its Golden Age.
At the onset of the American Revolution in 1776, the great American patriot Thomas Paine wrote: These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women.
In his “Open Letter” to Biden, PM Abiy Ahmed, a great patriotic Ethiopian said: Ethiopia will not succumb to consequences of pressure engineered by disgruntled individuals for whom consolidating power is more important than the well-being of millions. Our identity as Ethiopians and our identity as Africans will not let this come to pass. The humiliation our ancestors have faced throughout the continent for centuries will not be resuscitated in these lands upon which the green, gold and red colors of independence have inspired many to successfully struggle for their freedom!
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL ETHIOPIANS TO COME TOGETHER AND STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR ETHIOPIA BECAUSE ETHIOPAINS UNITED CAN NEVER BE DEFEATED!
