- Amharas should explicitly give up their conspiracy to DISMANTLE Oromia, if they come to power,
- Oromos should explicitly reconsider to give up their attempt to DISMEMBER Ethiopia, when their right to self-determination is respected,
- then both should have to develop a common goal to fight for: Independent Amhara and Independent Oromia in an Integrated Ethiopia, which is described by certain scholars as national self-determination with multi-national democracy!
If both succeed in giving up their extremities and make such compromise and consensus for common benefit, I am 100% sure Weyane will be history in short time. But I think the two BIG fool nations need yet many years to come to their senses first to make such compromise and consensus, that is a lottery for the fascists.
If you are OLF extremist please don't use the good name of "Meraraw". As a non Amara person, I beleive, you guys (OLF) have been brainwashed and have become extremist in thinking about the issue of Amara. No doubt there was inequality but it was not as extreme as you were told both by Egypt, Italian colonizers, Shaebia and Weyane. Think about it, none of these groups benefit Oromo or Ethiopia. As a result you became extreme to benefit and push the Agenda of these groups. Who is benefiting now? It is those groups while Oromos are being opressed and no change has come. What was disgraceful was that, the OLF does not even participate in the issue of Ethiopia for its resentment it had on Amara. Mind you though, the Amara also did not do a good job of building bridges between Amara and Oromos instead they have disconnected themselves from the rest of Ethiopia. It is not in best interests of OLF to not get involved in the affairs of Ethiopia as a whole, in fact the OLF have become ignorant of Ethiopia's issues and narrowing their mind further and believing outside enemies that is not even in the best interest of Ethiopia or Oromos. Trust me, any enemies of Ethiopia is the enemy of Oromos and the OLF is just adding to the fire. Today, we see people like crying wolf after the distruction of Ethiopia and OLF. You guys are more responsible at what ever the Oromos are going through today. You refused to stand next to the rest of Ethiopians against Weyane during the election of 2005. Once again betraying Oromos and benefiting Weyane. In fact, Weyanes during 2005 promised you "fooling you" once again that Weyane is ready to give power to OLF during the time as a result, while people are dying on the streets fighting Weyanes, you were sitting and watching and in fact the OLF had said "it is not their business" while the Oromos are dying and being arrested with other Ethiopians all in the name of resentment of Amaras. Trust me, if there is democracy after Weyane, I do believe Oromos will demand their federalism and Amaras had learned their lesson as well as are weak to oppose such demands. It is in fact it is in the best interest of Oromos and Amaras to give the rights of each region but without completely alienating eachother. One thing you must understand is that you can't live next to eachother and resent for the rest of your lives. Somehow, you have to make amends for the interests of your people, economy, culture, etc. Ethiopians whether Oromos or Amaras are too intertwined in every way not to live together. Even Eritrea and Ethiopia share so many commonalities than Oromos. Please what defines Ethiopia is not just Amaras so please open your mind. Otherwise, I agree that the greatest fear for Weyane is the reunion or Oromos and Amaras. Remember, it was those groups (mostly Oromos) that dismantled Italian attempt for colonizing Ethiopia. One thing we can't deny is that the interaction of these two groups is what makes Ethiopia safe from outside enemies that is why outsiders approach OLF to dismantle Ethiopia and divide Ethiopians to bring gap among Ethiopians as a whole.
My wish is one day, who ever those in the Film field to make films and documentaries of the Balcha Aba Nefso and the likes, the Kings and the conquering of Italy by Ethiopia. Ethiopia has so many heroes not just the kings, heroes in the South (my grandfather from the South) is one of them who died with chemical warfare by Italians.
Long live Oromos, Amaras, Gurages, Tigrays, etc!!! the people of Ethiopia!
