Ethiopia’s Tigray Conflict Reconsidered

How TPLF’s plan for victory like Israel’s Six-Days-War has turned to an embarrassing defeat that resembles Egypt’s Yom-Kippur war?

The TPLF was so occupied with replicating the Six-Days of War scenario that they forgot there was indeed also a chance the war would end up like the 1973 Yom-Kippur War. It seems that they studied only one part of Israel’s history or deliberately opted to be ignorant.

The Final Hours of Ethiopia’s TPLF Regime

“There is no such thing as a cakewalk in war, but if there ever was one, the capture of Mekelle would be it.”

Gone with the wind. When gazed upon, the TPLF appears awesome, formidable, and infinitely powerful. It has guns, tanks, rockets, planes, and bombs. Though the TPLF has legs of iron, its feet are made of clay. This beast with feet of clay, in the end, was run down! (Courtesy of Prof. AL Mariam)
