The absolute inability of the United Nations, African Union, and other international collaborations to solve issues aggravating against global peace is now undeniable. The events of the past year have been the culmination of a process going on for years where the countries of Myanmar, Iran, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and now Russia have decided that might not reason will determine the outcomes of disagreements. The United Nations appears to be following the same course as its predecessor the League of Nations which failed to prevent World War II.
As regards the Ethiopia and Eritrean war on Tigray this continued deterioration all but predicts that any political dialogue mediated by the African Union or United Nations will not happen. Abiy Ahmed is living in his personal fantasy of grandeur and influence while increasingly being transformed into the nightmare of a pawn of Eritrea’s Isaias Afwerki and apparatchik for Russia and China. In simpler terms just a puppet on a string. All the while the people of Tigray starve and Ethiopia becomes poorer by the minute.
Ethiopian diaspora imagining any closer relationship between Ethiopia and the United States while Ethiopia is actively promoting the military alliance with Russia are not in touch with evolving global realities. Many are expecting that Russia will use Eritrea and Ethiopia as bases to project power over the Red Sea to confront NATO presence.
