1896, Queen Tayitu, and Mekele on my mind. To avoid impending war related catastrophe, I prefer to encircle and wait until those in TPLF who ordered the ambush and killing of our Norther Command give up and give themselves up to #Ethiopian leaders or a neutral third party.

Countries who have abandoned outdated warrior culture and have evolved to resolve differences through dialogue are living in peace, giving thanks, and discussing about cooking and shopping. The others are engaged in war and causing misery to their civilian and military citizens.

I should add that the #Indian diaspora played a critical role to create an IT industry that has lifted 400 mil out of poverty, 20 bil remittance annually, afforded Indians an opportunity all over the world, and made #India synanomous with IT.

#India191 billion software industry was kick started by Kohli and was facilitied by conducive government policies and reliable IT infrastructure. Kohli, Who Shaped India’s IT Services Industry, Dies at 96 https://t.co/6BV6xhXWcD

Calling on #IsraeliEthiopian youth. Our #Microsoft Israeli Development Center (#ILDC) has started an initiative to encourage the youth to get in to the technology industry. Please encourage them to register and participate. https://t.co/5nhk5TcNtb

The poor masses suffer when stubborn #Ethiopian elites fight. Some of us voiced our concern repeatedly and called for dialog to no avail. Some renowned #Ethiopians, who normally tend to avoid internal politics, are reacting after war broke out. I wish they engaged proactively.

የጎንደር ከተማ ሕዝብ ብዛት፣ ባለፉት አስር ዓመታት ዉስጥ ከእጥፍ በላይ አድጓል፣ ክ200 ሺህ ወደ 450 ሺህ ደርሷል።

Interesting data on Gonder, Ethiopia.
The population of the city has more than doubled in the last 10 years from 200, 000 to 450, 000. https://t.co/XvsJZJksYx

Maybe Abiy can't trust international calls for negotiation because Western and regional actors keep granting the TPLF impunity. My analysis here (repaired link): https://t.co/2SETb2w015

In the interest of balance and comprehensive information, we all have read @japanizar piece on FP, and now read @BronwynBruton https://t.co/u97QNJnEjq

Trying to get factual evidence on the war situation in #Ethiopia. I may have missed it. Did #TPLF or #Tigray National Guard (Special force) deny attacking the Ethiopian National defense force stationed in Tigray state, as alleged by the federal government?

For the last four years, I have oscillated when it comes to Trump's presidency.
He could be a stress test to prove the American system was built survive an outlier leader.
He could destroy the system.
The jury is still out. https://t.co/8oBrWPY9yt

Reality check. This world is full of individuals, groups, and states bent on committing attrocity driven by monopoly of resources, ideological dogma and hate. Paradoxically, peace and safety is guaranteed through mutually assured destruction (MAD).

Quoted @TheAtlantic

"I am suffering for you," Trump says. And his supporters say, "Thank you." @olgakhazan reports on one sociologist's view of white men's enduring support for Trump: https://t.co/YP98e4uwZJ

A good read to understand the deep seeded support for Trump from some White Male Americans. Emotion and lack of empathy appears to be main drivers, and decisions like that dont end well for all involved. https://t.co/nzPREq1txs

#Ethiopia this is a little before/after session. You see the implementation of drip irrigation at our #FruitBoxAfrica farm. #FarmLife #Food https://t.co/bc8pQzuhfa

Would be great if our gov, business people, and the real NGOs focus on drip irrigation. I have read a study suggesting that our Somali region can be the most productive region through drip irrigation. https://t.co/GbP4pbAwls

UN Says Poor Countries a Dumping Ground for Used Cars  https://t.co/97UibVIF99

One major cause is the #African government, eg #Ethiopia, exorbitant vehicle import custom duty tax. Robbery level 500% tax encourages importing old cars. "used vehicles exported into developing countries are generally unsafe and responsible for an epidemic of road accidents." https://t.co/mUB2H9MT0Y
