The time has come for the U.S. to reevaluate its policy toward Ethiopia. A new approach is needed that recognizes that Mengistu’s Stalin-like policies are the root of Ethiopia’s crisis. Consequently, the aim of American policy should be to isolate Mengistu in the world community and to encourage a change in government. Only then will Ethiopians be able to advance permanently beyond their current disaster.
