You are very kind to Meles. Andrew Jackson was a populist. He was very popular among his people. The white settlers were his very own people. He was cruel to the natives but who wasn't at the time. Meles is selling the future of the country . Andrew Jackson would never do that. Actually, aside his cruelty to Indians Andrew Jackson was the little man's president.
Exactly Andrew Jackson was very popular among his people ,so is Meles among his western donors and chinese corporations.As you know Meles is known in Ethiopia as a mercenary,nobody believe him he is an Ethiopian or works for the interest of Ethiopia.The west knows he is not elected by Ethiopians they still have no shame to invite him to speak in their countries.It seems that the west forced him to sign a secret agreement following the 2005 failed election to make sure he will sale the whole Ethiopia to corporations in return they will be quite what ever crime he comitted.
