To comment below,
I agree with you that in the making of modern Ethiopia, Oromos had major roles, not just in the Adwa war but in every sector, nobody denies this fact. We have been saying to Oromo nationalists that Oromos should claim the entire Ethiopia not just some part, how can an Oromo running away from his own country like coward, it does not make sense!. But at the same time Oromos need to be brave enough to share responsibility of the past mistakes, you can not just claim pride for good stuff and dump the bad stuff on Amhara people.

As for Ethio-Somalia war is concerned, I was eyewitness, there were Oromo militias regiment mainly from the highland area from their accent, there were Tigre militias regiment some whom very young about 15 years old but at the time they were big to me, there were militias regiment dark people presumably from Shankilla or Gambella area, I am not sure from which part of Ethiopia they were recruited perhaps ambassador Kassa Kebede can give us answer, I remember some had traditional scars on their faces, also very young and tall. There were also Amharic speaking army brigade with plane green uniforms, in those days the proper army used to wear green, the militias used to wear burraburre. The point is, not just Oromos who fought against Zeyid Barre invasion, not to forget the Cubans contribution, for the first time I saw fighting tanks. The militias were recruited farmers, if I remember correctly their monthly salary was 20 birr, it pains me the elites take credit for everything.

My friend, I know the pain of Oromo people and the pain of Amhara people, believe me, people to people no problem, even poor Tigray people are kind. The biggest problem is the elites class, Oromos are led by the same old elites or their descendants by wearing Oromo shirt, these are the same elites who used to wear Amhara shirt. If you look at top TPLF officials, Aboy Sibhat, Meles, etc all are feudals children, they were able to attend the only university in the country, even Meles received prize from Hailesilasie. the point is, the same elites recycling itself by changing shirts, but the people pain still there.

Jawar is the topic of conversation on social media.
If we want to discuss openly, our country problem is very complex.
we try to hide for our ethnic, we try to hide for our religion, we try to hide for our history,
if we build a house on sand, sooner or later the house will collapse.

Right now Jawar is under attack from other Oromo groups,
for raising money for displaced Oromos from Somali region,
the money to be sent through OPDO account.

Diaspora communities including myself should help both displayed people of Oromos and Somalis,
but why the money should be sent through OPDO account?
we all know OPDO is a robot operated by woyane remote control,
the money could have been sent through NGO or international independent organization.
Jawar has been sentenced for terrorism, why he is sending money to them?

The other issue, right now the chaos is between Oromos and Somales, both are Ethiopians,
how do you expect Amharas to side with you? I saw social media conversation in Afan Oromo,
they say something in Amharic, totally different in Afan Oromo, are they a fool or what?
every time there is a problem, instead of solving their internal division,
always blame on warri Neftegna, warri Menelik, warri abellu, etc.
When poor Amhara people have been displaced from region to region for 25 years,
who stood with the poor Amhara people?
moreover, during Ethio-Somalia war, Amhara and christian people were targeted,
some were killed, little girls were rapped very badly, they took with them beautiful girls,
our shops, cattles, all looted, some houses burned down.
I was little, we walked several nights to reach to big city, daytime we hid in mountains.
extremely tiring, there was no a single car! That was when I learned that I was Amhara.
There were many good Muslim Oromos who fed us hiding in the mountain,
There were also cadres who collaborated and giving directions to Somali militias.

My point is, I noticed that they avoid blaming Somalis, they look for escapegoat,
if this conflict was between Amharas and Oromos, oh my God!
Please, make a distinction between poor Amhara people and elites of past regimes
their descendants some of whom are Oromos wearing Amhara Gabbi.
