I have been reading about Selassie I for a while and I&I give thanks to see him as a rolemodel for what he did for africa and the world. But I have one thing that is hard to think about when I give thanks and praises. I have read that he buchtered eritreans. And I know of course that people die in war, but I feel murder is still murder. So I&I would like to hear your thoughts on that tobic. Give Thanks.

Greetings Rasta Youth,
Can you please specify where/when Haile Selassie I supposedly butchered Eritreans?
As far as I know, the Eritrean/Ethiopian conflict began in the late 1990's, more than 20 years after Haile Selassie I disappeared from the scene. Obviously Haile Selassie I was not involved in that war. If you are talking about the Italio-Ethiopian war, when Italians invaded Ethiopia with the help of Eritrea who was at the time a colony of Italy, then Haile Selassie I had the right to fight against anyone who was invading his country. Although "butchering" is definitely not the right word - that was more the word to describe Italy's treatment of Ethiopians. Italy broke international law and used heinous means to try to gain control over Ethiopia - all Ethiopia and Haile Selassie I did was defend (with minimal weapons) their nation.
Read the autobiographies of Haile Selassie I for more information, and for external sources that prove his story to be accurate.
