Hoping to convince with obstreperous lies

It is now well documented that Ethiopia led by the fascist-now-turned 'democrat' Mr Meles Zenawi has been the main source of instability throughout the horn of Africa region. It, Ethiopia repeatedly crossed into the Kenyan border to kill and main innocent Kenyans in the name of going after non-existent enemy, Oromo Liberation Front Figthers (OLF). He, Mr Zenawi was and still is the main violator of the UN Somali arms embargo. He has repeatedly been cited as the main culprit in arming many of the Somali warlords to make sure that chaos reins supreme in Somalia.

He has maimed and killed thousands of innocent Ogaden Somali civilians in Ogaden. He has sent merciless, motley militias into Ogaden. Having failed to confront Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) fighters in the battlefields, these militias have been exacting revenge by mutilating, strangling, and extrajudicially killing Ogaden civilians by the thousands. He, Mr Zenawi is currently arming in and around the Somali border towns close to the Ogaden border many of the defeated Somali warlords. Mr Mohamed Dheere was housed in the main military garrison in Godey for a number of weeks. He is reported to be regrouping his defeated militias in Qudhac Joome with the help and full knowledge of Mr Zenawi.

According to the Associated Press, [Ethiopian] troops entered the border town of Beled-Hawo in eight military vehicles, Husein Ali Burale, a well-known traditional elder, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Myraid Somali sources have confirmed Ethiopian troop incursions deep into Somali territory. In light of the aforementioned facts, it is outrageous for Zenawi, to claim that he is neither violating nor sending his motley militias into Somalia. May be Mr Zenawi hopes to convince the world community with obstreperous lies which we are sure will not fly.

Vociferous lies aside, Mr Zenawi is using the defeat of the Somali warlords as a pretext to invade Somalia. He is eager to transport his own problems to a neighboring country such as Somalia. He is hoping his Somali involvement will buy him time not only to put himself in the good books of the Western world but also to defeat Ethiopian opposition parties with the declaration of a state of emergency.

We caution the world community not to fall for Zenawi's brazen lies. The world community should make it clear to Zenawi that press conferences will not hide the fact that he is deeply involved and is the chief catalyst of the ongoing Somali chaos. The world community should force this moron of a prime minister to resolve the long standing Ogaden situation.
