Susan Rice brings shame and dishonor to the United States (video)

The speech given by U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice today at Meles Zenawi’s funeral was full of lies that she brought dishonor and shame to the United States. Her speech was also an insult to the people of Ethiopia who have been terrorized by her friend, the late dictator Meles Zenawi. Even his own wife Azeb Mesfin did not try to portray Meles a messiah. Let’s look at briefly the record of what Susan described as a great, brilliant leader, a savior of Ethiopia and Africa: Meles Zenawi turned Ethiopia from a 3rd world country into a 4th or 5th world country where he himself could not get medical treatment. Under Meles’s 21-years of rule, Ethiopia has one of the highest unemployment rate. Ethiopia continues to be one of the top ten poorest countries in the world. Ethiopia under Meles has the lowest per capita usage of the internet in Africa, even worse that the stateless Somalia. Over ten million Ethiopian children are terribly malnourished. Over 30% of Ethiopia’s budget is covered by aid from the U.S. and EU. Without $3 billion in annual assistance for donor nations, Meles Zenawi’s regime could not have lasted 6 months. And worst of all, Meles Zenawi is a genocidal dictator who burned entire villages in Ogaden, committed atrocities in Gambella, leased millions of hectares fertile Ethiopian land to foreign investors at basement bargain prices, displaced 2 million Somalians, incited ethnic and religious clashes, ordered the killings of pro-democracy protesters, made torture a common practice in Ethiopian prisons, to mention just some of his misdeeds and crimes. Meles’s hands are soaked with the blood of countless innocent Ethiopians and Somalians. It is this mass murderer, thug, mental midget, scumbag that Susan Rice portrayed as an angel in her speech at his funeral today. Listen below:

  1. “World class mind, uncommonly wise” calls others “idiots”; “for the land he loved”; “father of Ethiopia”; “passionately proud of being Ethiopian”, I better stop before I throw up.

  2. Are you infltrated by woyane rats. My comments are being thrown into your trash bin by your moderaters. I am just wondering. It is not uncommon to see these rats in the most unsusual place.

    Hope you will look in to it

  3. I love Elias and Ethiopian Review, the only place where we can get fresh updates and unabashed opinions. The rest of the Ethio related websites don’t even come close to ER. Elias, you tell us what you think no matter who or what and I love that about you. I am seriously considering to be one of your monthly supporters. Without you we are screwed, which is the reason that I hate to even disagree with you a little bit because you are a true herioin. I am nothing compared to you.

    But please face the truth that Susan Rice wouldn’t utter those words without the full approval of her boss, the most powerful man in the world, the President of the Great United States of America, Barack Obama. Don’t doubt for a minute those are the words of not one Susan Rice, but our great leader President Obama. Ms Rice represents the United States of America and our President.

    This would have been the perfect time for President Obama to demand real change in Ethiopia, but we must realize that the status quo iin Ethiopia s not only approved by the President, but also encouraged.

    It is a somber moment, but it’s a truth we have to face.

    It’s heart breaking for most Ethiopians but I am not surprised for a moment.

    God bless Ethiopia.
