Journalist Finian Cunningham lived in the Tigray region of Ethiopia during the build-up of the war that erupted in November 2020. That two-year war continues despite recent talk of a peace deal. The Tigray people are still under genocidal siege by the federal government led by a charlatan Nobel Peace laureate, Abiy Ahmed. Many commentators in the West have a distorted view of the war, wrongly portraying the Tigray rebels (TPLF) as the aggressors. In a sickening inversion of reality, these commentators have blamed the victims of genocide instead of the real aggressor – the federal government in Addis Ababa Ababa. They also bizarrely claim that the US has supported the Tigray to undermine the federal government.
