Ethiopia's Other War: Gungrabbing and Genocide Against the Anuaks



Even as the Ethiopian government celebrates its victory in Mogadishu, it is stepping up a war of genocide against its own Anuak minority. While the Bush administration has praised the Ethiopian intervention in Somalia, it has shown a blind eye to these atrocities. As Dave Kopel, et al. points out, the war against the Anuaks also shows the horrific consequences of the UN's campaign against civilian gun ownership:

The central government, in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa, has disarmed most of the Anuak, and even disarmed Anuak police officers. Ethiopia is among the East African nations which have promised to conduct campaigns against civilian gun ownership, as part of the United Nations-sponsored Nairobi Protocol. Like several other signers of the Nairobi Protocol (Rwanda, Uganda, Congo, Sudan), Ethiopia already had a well-established record of genocide against disarmed victims.
