Western funded genocide: Ethiopia and the Ogaden

July 11, 2011

by Ann Garrison and Thomas Mountain

Broadcast on KPFA News July 4, 2011

by Ann Garrison


Ethiopian troops are in the oil rich, contested Sudanese Abyei region in accordance with a new U.N. Security Council resolution invoking sovereign nations’ “responsibility to protect” vulnerable populations from genocide and mass atrocities if their own governments aren’t protecting them. But human rights investigators say that the Security Council is ignoring Ethiopia’s own genocide in the Ogaden Basin, and that the West is funding it.

Transcript

KPFA Weekend News Anchor David Landau: In Africa, with South Sudan’s independence from the northern government of Omar al-Bashir only five days away [July 9], the division of oil revenues, demarcation of new borders and the future of the disputed, oil rich Abyei region remain unresolved.

The U.S. has dispatched Ethiopian troops with the approval of a U.N. Security Council resolution “authorizing the use of force to protect civilians and humanitarian workers in Abyei.” But veteran African journalists say the Ethiopian troops are actually protecting U.S. and allied oil interests. The same journalists join Human Rights Watch and other human rights organizations in saying that the U.S. and the Security Council are tolerating an ongoing genocide in Ethiopia’s own Ogaden Basin. KPFA’s Ann Garrison has more.

KPFA/Ann Garrison: Thomas Mountain of Eritrea is a Counterpunch, Global Research, Foreign Policy and AfrobeatRadio contributor and is one of the only independent reporters in the Horn of Africa. He says that Ethiopian dictator Meles Zenawi’s troops in Sudan are in fact U.S. and allied enforcers:

Thomas Mountain: Ethiopia is the U.S. cop on the beat. They’re enforcers, they’re gendarmes, which is a critical part of U.S. foreign policy. They use local forces so that they can have their dirty work done and hold up their hands and say, “Look, our hands are clean.”

KPFA: Mountain and others, including Human Rights Watch and veteran Africa journalist and human rights investigator Keith Harmon Snow, say that the U.S. and U.N. are tolerating genocide against the people of Ethiopia’s own Ogaden Basin. The Ethiopian government, they say, has blocked food and medical aid to millions in danger of starvation amidst a drought worsening in much of East Africa so as to weaken the Ogaden National Liberation Front fighting for independence from Ethiopia.

Thomas Mountain: Because of a major drought, millions of Ethiopians in the Ogaden are starving. There’s also a counter insurgency that’s been going on for about 10 years where the people have risen up against the marginalization and the brutal military occupation tactics of the Meles Zenawi regime that’s in power in Ethiopia.

So the Meles Zenawi regime has blocked food aid. They’ve kicked the Red Cross and the Doctors Without Borders and other aid agencies out of the Ogaden and are blocking food aid to the millions of starving people in the Ogaden.

And Ethiopia, of course, is the largest recipient of Western aid in Africa, receiving about $7 billion a year. So this is a Western funded genocide in the Ogaden that’s being completely ignored by the Western media and the Western governments, even though they know all about it.

KPFA: The U.N. Resolution approving the dispatch of Ethiopian troops to Sudan invoked the international doctrine that sovereign states have a “responsibility to protect” populations not being protected by their own governments. The doctrine was formalized by U.N. Security Council Resolutions 1674 and 1894, in 2006 and 2009, on the protection of civilians in armed conflict. Neither has been invoked to protect the people of the Ogaden.

Ethiopia buys arms as millions starve

by Thomas Mountain

Ethiopia is on another arms buying spree as millions of Ethiopians starve due to the worst drought in 60 years. According to Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, Ethiopia is purchasing 200 battle tanks from Ukraine for over $100 million. Was it a coincidence that the day before Meles’ announcement, the British foreign aid office announced a $60 million “emergency food aid donation” to Ethiopia?

Why, you might be excused for asking, does Ethiopia need 200 tanks? There isn’t any realistic chance of any of Ethiopia’s neighbors invading the country considering Ethiopia already has the largest, best equipped army in Africa.

One of the primary reasons Ethiopia needs 200 tanks is to conduct its counterinsurgency campaigns against the ethnically based armed uprisings slowly engulfing much of the country. From the Ogaden in the southeast, to Tigray in the north, Gambella in the west and now, it is reported, even Oromia in the southwest – the Ethiopian regime needs to be able to crush its own people, and the latest installment of armor is long over due.

It is already 11 years since Ethiopia invaded Eritrea and in the process lost its best armored divisions, including at least two in one day-long disaster called the Battle of Tsorona.

Tanks work well against lightly armed guerilla fighters and even better when it comes to crushing civilian uprisings, something those in the Western and U.N. “aid” agencies are fully cognizant of. Now that Ethiopia has become a source of “peacekeepers” in Sudan, some of these Ethiopian tanks may be used to uphold Pax Americana on the north-south Sudanese border which includes Sudan’s oil fields.

As the Western media once again turns a blind eye, Ethiopia spends $100 million on tanks and all the while millions of Somalis starve in Ethiopia’s Ogaden.

      Wakeup Abebe Tokichaw!!! Is there democracy in Ethiopia ???? Are you kidding yourself?? Let me give you some facts incase they might help you to use your head.

      1. Is there any governmental/federal job for any Ethiopian citizen if that person is not a member of "EPRDF" ???

      2. How is that possible a country with only one party calim to be a democratic ??? Your dictator leader has already labeled Gnbot 7, OLF and ONEG as terrorists. By the way If Gnbot 7 is a terrorist group, the US should be hosting a terrorist called Dr. Brhanu Nega.

      3. You will finally realize one day that how Weyane and Meles are the worest leaders when ' Tigray Republic" is implemented. The time is not too far we will have a new nation in the East of Africa soon. But the good thing is Tigray Republic is not feasible at all, Eritreans from north and the rest of Ethiopia from south will sandwich it like crazy. I can't wait to see Tigray Republic. We Ethiopians will bring back the night stolen wealth of Ethiopia back to Mama Ethiopia during the day.

    Thomas,
    Just be honest and tell us how much the terrorist Isaias Afewerki, the old jackal, and the Ogaden bandits have paid you to write this crap. You are very shamful and by writing this nonsence, you brought a disgrace upon yourself. Our visionary leader Meles Zenawi is number 1 in Africa in his leadind skill and knowledge. We Ethiopians are very much proud of him.
    As to the tanks, 200 is very few for a great country like Ethiopia. We will purchase triple of that number yet for we have an idiot man to the north, and his mad dogs like you.

    Thomas Mountain?? Isn't he the journalist who used to live in Eritrea? He has been reporting anti-ethiopia news for more than 10 years since Ethiopia and Eritrea went to war. he was the first foreign journalist financed by the eritrean government.

    ofcourse, Thomas is going to make up stories about ethiopia. that is his job

    Ethiopia did not start battling Islam extremism after 911. We have been doing that for hundreds of years. The US and the West just got the joke, what Israel and Ethiopia have had to deal with for centuries.

    With that said, to think that Ethiopia is another banana republic that is doing Washington’s work, is evidence of one not knowing the history of that region. There is a battle folks. On one had you have governments that are based on a single religion, Islam. Governments like in Northern Sudan, Somalia, Iran, etc. that mix the law with religion. Then you have Israel and Ethiopia .. where Muslims are minorities, but are able to coexist because the law of the land is not based religion. The rest of the Christian world needs to get this joke to understand the actions of Ethiopia and Israel. We are not puppets; we are fighting and protecting our own freedom from Islam Extremists wherever they may be; even if that may mean going after a naive Asmara resident named Thomas Mountain.

    Once folks understand the joke mentioned, then they will understand why Ethiopia went to Somalia and is ready now to go to Sudan. Asmara is next!

      The only terrorists Ethiopia fought has been fighting are that agaisnt its own citizens. Under these days fashion, If any citizens oppose the policies of the existing regime, they are lebeled as Terrorists. It is so funny. Ex. Dr. Brhanu Nega who has been lecturing in one of the most prestigious University in the US is a terrorists. which means US is a safe heaven for terrorists.

      By the way, the definition of the term ETHIOPIA has been put in a dictionary;

      Ethiopia means 1. War, disease, AIDS, hunger, starvation
      2. A country which has been under indirect western colonizers for centuries.
      3. A country which survives by handouts.

      Any way, let me ask you one simple question? Please prove to us if you can self relay.

    Dictator melez Zenawi is trying to silence the genocide that his wayane tigre are committing in Ogaden Region, we the people of Ogaden will fight at the last one of us die or we get back our land from dictator melez and his wayane Tigray.

    Melez Zenawi is trying to change the game to religion problem but it is not a religion matter. The peoble of Ogaden are freedom fighters and Melez Zenawi (Tigre) is Occupier.

    Look what Melez Zenawi said "Ethiopia did not start battling Islam extremism after 911. We have been doing that for hundreds of years. The US and the West just got the joke, what Israel and Ethiopia have had to deal with for centuries. "

    It is amazing that the isolated and mentally challenged dictator of Eritrea is paying foreign journalists for such poor purpose while almost half of the eritrean population is now living ad refugees and dying in the say trying to escape the harsh living condition, extreme poverty, life long military service and the mass jailing, killing etc by the shabia bandit government.
    Eritrea is the worst place to be for any breathing creature at this time. How could a government who couldn’t build a single university for its citizens in 20 years could still lead is a mystery for me. Yet, shabia have the gut to compare itself with the Ethiopian government who is transforming the country with the number of public universities growth from only one 20 years ago to 42 at this time and other 10 are on their way to be completed by 2014. Needless to list the number of Mega power plants,express ways and a rail road connecting all corners of ethiopia being built with in the five year growth and transportation plan.

    I have no love for Meles, but I am *extremely* skeptical of an ostensibly independent journalist reporting from Eritrea and who is writing about Ethiopia. Eritrea was ranked last on Reporters Without Borders' 2010 Press Freedom Index (even lower than North Korea which was next-to-last). But then, presumably Reporters Without Borders is on the pro-America bandwagon, too.

    (And, yes, in fairness Ethiopia is fairly low on this list as well, at 139)

    Upon the perusal of several articles from Thomas I found he is not credible. His advocacy of the "Eritrean Nationalism" is in par with the most extreme Eritrean Nationalists and seems to be hinged in destroying the image of Ethiopia. He doesn't even distinguish between the people of Ethiopia and the current government. Well this is not the first time Ethiopia has been a subject of intense hate and it wont be the last either.
    Surely there are huge problems in Ethiopia. The rule of law, democracy, equal opportunities, fair elections, etc. are all work in progress. But to accuse of the current government of being a puppet of external forces is ignorance. The regime works for its own interests..If it serves its interest it will work with anyone… They even were hand and glove with Eritrean regime.

    As for the Ogaden…ONLF cries genocide the government speaks of development and hope. But both share similar traits with liberation fronts everywhere, i.e. they will use force, they lie, and orchestrate events to get advantage irrespective of the damage ("collateral") they cause on the masses. I also don't believe the army is so out of control as to committing rape and mass killings. There may be outliers but it is not systemic.

    I'm a former NGO who worked inside Ethiopia's Ogaden region (prior to the clampdown) and yes, I can certainly state what's happening in the Ogaden is undoubtedly a genocide. When I complained to the Ethiopian authorities of the mass killings and rapes that were taken place by Ethiopian troops, I was kicked out the country within two days. My employers told me to keep my mouth shut because Washington didn't want to upset Ethiopia's dictator, nor did it want the lazy media to focus on Meles Zenawi's genocide in the Ogaden. Basically, in layman terms, Meles Zenawi is given a free hand to commit genocide and destabilize the entire Horn of Africa region because of United States' pathetic foreign policy towards the Horn of Africa. Just five months ago, I was informed one of my friends in the Ogaden named Abdi Abdullah was shot and killed by Ethiopian troops for breaking his 6pm curfew implemented in his village.

    As usual on the comments section you have a bunch of wide mouth semi literate TPLF supporters creating diversion's without discussing the story where Eritrea a rival nation to Ethiopia is mentioned.It doesn't change the fact that Ethiopia is committing a horrible genocide in the Ogaden, the government of Ethiopia is blocking all access to the Ogaden a region 1/3 in size of Ethiopia.The Media, NGO's, Human rights organisations have all been chased out so the government of Ethiopia can commit crimes at will, without been accountable.The U.N and powerful countries like the U.S are aware of these crimes as there own reports have stated backed by the reports of reputable human rights organisations( ex. HRW, Amnesty) but protecting so-called strategic geo-political interests are more important than human rights and democracy, it seems these concepts only matter when its strategically convenient to talk about them.

    seriously some people still believe that they are free back in Ethiopia oh came on now we are here and there is nothing to be scared of we know the only people that can say that are tigre. Well it is not a surprise because we used to it. So the genocide in Ogaden region does not seem that big of a deal. if for some reason that becomes a big deal we( the rest of Ethiopia) now we will go down by the Government that is the (tigre). who else have the right to step on people. but to tell the truth it the key I am sure it is now on the Ogaden people but who is next that is us the rest of Ethiopians who are ignoring what is happening. but I would imagine some one inside Ethiopia to be scared to tell the truth how ever what surprised me is those who are outside Ethiopia and yet still saying they don't care what is happening now. it is hard to say that i feel the pain that this people are going through but it is foolishness to ignore the way they are getting treated. I am sure one day they will get their freedom from the dictator and become a nation.
