Anyone reading this account should do some inquiry about the Mengitsu regime and it's history. The author was a government official in the Marxist revolution and, by his own writing, had a hand in the tragedy that followed. The story revolves around his innocent adoption of communism as a student in the US, then his transformation into a key player in the Rehabilitation and Rescue Commission tasked with the supposed distribution of relief supplies to his starving country. His complaints about the West and their accusations, usually followed by admissions that the Western donors were correct, is an interesting fantasy world he inhabited to deflect his own role in the deaths of so many of his countrymen. Without a working knowledge of the famine that took the lives of so many in Ethiopia and the calculated construction of that famine to political ends, all the while using the supplies given by the West to further the hardships of it's populace, this book was written to absolve it's writer of the guilt he deserves. Why the USA would harbor this man is beyond me. The story of the Marxist government in this historically significant country is the story of many countries that have embraced this political system, only to find terror and corruption it's most elemental components. From his denunciations of Mengitsu and his henchmen, to his self aggrandizement as to the role he played in maximizing the help given to his people, this rings hollow when knowledge of the outcomes and realities are understood. This is a collection of half-truths, outright falsehoods and hubris that reflect a man that served as a myrmidon to Satan and then thought he could apologize via a word processor. The hubris remains.

A note excerpted from the author of Red Tears: War, Famine, and Revolution in Ethiopia - Dawit Woldegiorgis in defense . . .

“Those years are considered as one dark chapter in our history, and all people who were closely associated with that regime are sometimes mistakenly accused for the crimes committed then. Here is a brief answer. It is not meant to glorify my work or the work of people with whom I had the honor to work with, but to let those who might not know that in those times, the great majority of people working closely with and under the government were hard working people who sacrificed their lives and their youthful age to do good under difficult circumstances. This brief story is about my experience as an example and a tribute to those with whom I have worked; but out there, there are plenty who can tell better stories about people who did a lot to make a difference in those difficult times; the ‘dergue’ times. Please come out and tell it.” For more please follow the link. https://www.facebook.com/dawit.woldegiorgis.90/posts/1613489342235059
