Colonialism Alive! Proxy Colonialism

On this blog I wrote quite a lot about the Proxy Colonialism the US henchmen Kagame of Rwanda and Museveni of Uganda are exercising_on_the_DR_Congo leading to the death of eight to ten million people in that country during the last two decades. All this done for Western industrial greed for resources like Coltan.

Many reports are also to be found about the US Empire and Saudi backed proxy mercenaries terrorizing Syria. Saudi Arabia´s colonial proxy war on Yemen, waged on behalf not only their own interest but on behalf of Israel and the US is also getting into the focus. But there´s another dramatic case of Proxy Colonialism on the other side of the Globe.

West Papua and Indonesian Proxy Colonialism

When Indonesia (to that day “Dutch East India”) gained independence (declared August 1945, formally recognized December 1949 by the Dutch, with exception of Netherlands_New_Guinea (the Western part of New_Guinea) under Ahmed Sukarno it tried to follow a path of independence in the Non-Aligned_Movement. But the military was very strong and deeply linked to the US. Sukarno who had tried to balance the military and on the other side the strong communist party failed in the end. In a terrible conflict (500,000 people, many landless sympathizers of the KP, butchered) the balance crumbled in a military take over.

The Indonesian Regime, a Brutal Henchman of globalized Capitalism

General Suharto was the man of the US and seized power (officially in 1968) over the archipelago with so many different ethnicities. He and his military clique turned the many islands into a plunder ground for the Westerners and Japanese interests using Javanese dominance for their purposes, especially to eastern regions, i. e. the western part of New_Guinea.

New Africa“: New Guinea

When the Spaniards and other Westerners came across the island, its dark skinned inhabitants with frizzy hair reminded them of Africa´s Guinea Coast (which was already made the hunting ground for slavers) which inspired them to name the island New Guinea. Going further east they met similar people up to the Fiji islands and in course of time named them Melanesians because of their dark pigmentation.

In New Guinea the natural surrounding with high mountains and deep valleys led to an enormous linguistic splitting and the number of languages outnumbers that of continents. Certain forms of conflict practices (though culturally limited in a refined way) as well as other cultural practices strengthened western prejudices. When the Dutch reigned over “Dutch East India” including the western part of New Guinea, they infected many of the other colonized with these prejudices.

For a broader perspective on the situation of the black inhabitants of South East Asia and the Western Pacific see an article from 2011:

Intrusion: „Divide and Rule“

Throughout Colonialism the Colonizers liked to play one group against the other. If force „was needed“ to keep people in one place down people were recruited as colonial soldiers from other ethnicities. This is also to be found with the „use“ of the Nepalese_Gurkha by the British in South East Asia. And these methods „linked“ even Continents (as for work force this was common for example with Indian contract laborers to the Caribbean and to Fiji). Between 1831 and 1872 the Dutch enlisted about 3000 people from West Africa, mainly from Ashanti and other Akan peoples, into their colonial army in Dutch East India. They were called Belanda_Hitam, black_Dutchmen. The offspring_of_those_Indo-Africans are still to be found in the Netherlands, Surinam as well as in Indonesia. By and large this history might not have contributed to Indonesians liking for black people.

The Creepy Beginning of a Tragedy

When Indonesia gained independence soon after WW II formally in 1949 Western New Guinea as said before remained under Dutch control to the distaste of the Indonesian ruling Elite. The issue of borders in connection with independence raised some complicated questions in general, which were even more felt in Africa. A basic contradiction was lying in colonial borders which separated ethnicities and lumped others – having historical conflicts or having very different types of society – together. General line among the anti colonial movements was to avoid endless border issues. But on the other side in Africa the large entity of former French West Africa was also split into a number of countries.

The aspirations of the Javanese dominated Indonesian political class (under pressure of growing overpopulation in the archipelago´s West) were confronted with a special situation. Firstly West New Guinea had been longer under Dutch control and was de facto already no more “part of Indonesia”, secondly, but more important, it was a very different world. It was not only inhabited by very different people but by people on whom especially the majority and decisive group, the Javanese, looked upon in despise with that racist arrogance based on the perceived „backwardness“ of the Papua and which was strengthened by North European anti black racism. And the social structure would have left the Papua almost defenseless to economic and social exploitation.

Despite different plans by the Netherlands

On basis of this situation – and possibly based on own interest to establish neo-colonial relations – the Dutch government made plans to prepare West Papuans for Independence to be gained in 1970. Such considerations didn´t bother neither the Indonesian government nor the UN dominated by the US government. Indonesia tried to solve their “problem” by military force. Under the strong influence of the US the UN made the Netherlands in the New_York_Agreement complying to hand over administration to Indonesia (which they did in March 1963). Especially the US aim to keep Indonesia close to the West played its part. For this the US had special plans, fittingly analyzed by Noam Chomsky in an interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWlYorZWvWw). But the treaty also included a procedure after a while in which the Papua should decide whether they wanted to stay with Indonesia. The Agreement included this:

a) Musyawarah (consultative councils) would be instructed on procedures to assess the will of the population

b) The actual date of the act would be completed before 1969

c) The question in the act would allow the inhabitants to decide whether to stay or to separate from Indonesia

d) ALL adults would be allowed to participate in the act of free choice

But what became out of it?

The Fake “Decision”, the “Act of Free Choice”

The “Act_of_Free_Choice” was then in 1969 nothing but a typical colonial theatre. The Indonesia military had selected 1025 men to vote in an event in July to August 1969 about the future of their people, which was being performed by “hand rising” (surrounded by barbed wire and armed forces nearby), blocking any public discussion on the matter. It doesn´t need much fantasy to imagine which mixture of bribing_and_terrorizing a military organization has to apply to reach_the_desired_aim. Nevertheless the UN manifested this fake procedure in the resolution 2504 (XXIV) without any qualification whether it fulfilled the demands described in United Nations General Assembly resolutions 1514 and 1541 (XV) respectively. To call this theatre play an act of „self determination“ requires a high grade of cynicism.

Another Intrusion: The Eastern Part of New Guinea, Papua New Guinea

The eastern part of New Guinea was up to World War I divided between the Germans in the North East and the British in the South East. The German part was handed to the Australians as a “protectorate” afterwards. Both parts got independence as Papua New Guinea in 1975 including the “Bismarck Archipelago and the Northern Solomon Islands (http://tinyurl.com/chrqzkg). Rich resources (oil, copper, gold) as well as well as agricultural products (coffee, cocoa, oil palm and tea) inspire Western greed and expose the country to all well known evils of neocolonialism as the western part of the island does. All 7.5 to 8 million inhabitants of today will have to defend their place against this growing greed.

Pending Genocide: Ongoing Resistance and ongoing Massacres in West Papua

By and large the resistance and armed struggle began as campaigns by tribal warriors, who just wanted to get rid of the strange occupants. The United_Liberation_Movement_for_West_Papua and the Free_Papua_Movement were formed. By the time it got more organized, gained more support from exile Papua and sympathizers in Papua New Guinea (the eastern half of the island) and other Melanesians.

west-papua-atrocities-4

Infuriating is the plunder of the mineral_resources by international companies, by which Indonesia tries to pay their own debts to world finance (a general problem of “Third World countries). The Grasberg_mine run by Freeport McRohan is the world´s largest Gold mine and second largest Copper mine. Now Freeport_has_given_51%_control_to_Indonesia, for which it will be allowed to keep the mine till 2041. The destruction and pollution of the natural surrounding and the expelling of people, so that Westerners can get “their” oil, gold and other precious resources “which by incident got under the rain wood of those savages”, fuels the resistance of the people. And the devastation is also going on for plunder of precious woods and else.

west-papua-atrocities-5

On one hand there is a real ecocide_going_on_in_the_heartlands of West Papua. Even worse are the direct sufferings of the population. The brutality of the Indonesian army is well known. It´s reported that four_out_of_ten_West_Papuan_women have been subjected to Indonesian state violence.

The land as such is wanted by Indonesians. The Indonesian immigrants are about to outnumber the Papuans. A Transmigration_program is existing. In fact there is evidence for genocidal_intention on the side of Indonesia. In an article in „The_Tyee“ from November 2006 one can read: „It has been estimated that 100,000 Papuans (about 10 percent of the population) were killed by the Indonesian military after they took control of West Papua. In a recent Associated Press article, human rights monitors put the death toll at approximately 200,000.“ The Papuan leader Benny_Wenda is even claiming that half a million Papuans might have fallen victim_to_the_Indonesian_state_sanctioned_murder.

west-papua-atrocities-1

An important role might play AIDS. In the same article on can also read: „A 2005 report, published by the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney, alleged that the military has been involved in supplying HIV/AIDS-infected prostitutes to the region. Currently, the province of Papua has the second highest number of AIDS sufferers in Indonesia, after Jakarta. With the number AIDS cases doubling in just four years, and the systematic discrimination against Papuans in government-sponsored AIDS education programs, many villages have virtually been wiped out.

In a word: The indigenous people of West Papua are in a desperate situation!

And a Third Intrusion: Brothers in suffering

How little the Indonesian political attitude towards West Papua has to do with the fact that West Papua was once “united” with Indonesia in “Dutch East India” showed the treatment of the former Portuguese colony East_Timor which got near independence in the downfall of Portugal´s Salazar regime (to which the struggle of the people in its African colonies contributed enormously). With the support of the US Indonesia annexed East Timor and massacred many thousands of the inhabitants. In all this resulted in more than 100,000 deaths as the consequence of massacres but also of hunger and illness. In the end the enormous brutality raised international protest which contributed together with the fierce resistance (by Falintil, the armed force of the Fretelin) to East Timor´s independence in September 2002. This development is in a way a torch and hope for the suffering Papua.

Hopes, Dangers and Perspectives

As said before the example of East Timor might be encouraging, but notwithstanding the fact that East Timor has besides its Sandal wood off shore oil resources about which a partial sea boundary solution with Australia is reached, West Papua is a much more tempting prey for imperialism. If West Papua would hopefully gain independence international corporations are more on the uncertain side because the resistance as such is a lot motivated by the extraction of the resources. In such a case the empire (US) might even prefer unification with Papua New Guinea since neocolonial ties there are already established. The present turmoil in the eastern half of the island is largely the result of that. As long as the US capitalists are relatively sure of Indonesia they´ll do a lot to enable Indonesia to uphold its grip. A changing geostrategic situation in East and South East Asia could change things, especially if the upcoming currency treaty between China and Japan might do its part, since Japan is joining in the exploitation of Indonesia at the US´s will. On the other side do the covered plans to expand NATO to Australia and New Zealand not provide much good for the region since it´s the clear symbol for the will to perpetuate “white man´s world rule” forever.

The people of Papua must know that even Europe being still in the status of a vassal to the US Empire would be a very shaky ally in their aspirations. Public pressure and a strong support by leftist parties as well as solidarity from “Third World Countries”, especially from African countries, would be a desired help, but are still lacking. Understanding in Melanesia is growing, Vanuatu gave a good signal. It will be a hard and protracted long struggle only to be won with the patience the freedom hero Filep_Karma has shown, who was thrown into prison by Indonesians after having raised West Papua´s flag in 2004.

And one should be skeptical of certain allies. Especially infiltrated NGOs and Christian groups could be eager to keep the resistance groups close to the Western plunder by globalist neoliberal capitalism. Thus the resistance groups should be on the watch.

Fake Friends and Allies

Oppression means also to keep the oppressed away from information. Ignorance as the result of oppression has for example driven Jamaicans to a mystification of the Haile Selassi regime of those days and led to the Rastafari movement (luckily with little real Western influence). Western Christian infiltration of the South Sudanese struggle made South_Sudan a toy in the hands of the West.

There´s also a dangerous confusion among sections of West Papua’s resistance about Israel, systematically nourished also by (US) Evangelicals, with close connection to Zionism. This phenomenon is also linked to the fact that Islam is Indonesia´s most prominent religion. Superficial approach and the likewise dangerous and superficial idea “my enemy´s enemy is my friend” contributed to this. It is understandable that Papuans might be annoyed about Indonesian_hospital_for_Palestine whereas the health situation in their own country is grossly neglected to formulate it mildly, but things should be seen in context. The Papuan sympathizers for Israel do not know that there are informal_relations_between_Indonesia_and_Israel even on the “security level”. Likewise the sympathizers are for example unaware that not the whole Arabic world at all turns a blind eye to West Papua´s sufferings. Arabic Aljazeera for example is quite aware of West Papua. It did not only report about Indonesian_massacres_inside_the_country but pays lot of attention to the ongoing plunder_of_West_Papua as well as to the background_and_resistance with sympathy. Also the Indonesian_misuse_of_interpol in the case of Benny Wenda is well documented by Al Jazeera. In deed there are great similarities in the situation of West_Papua_and_Palestine and Papuans would be well advised not to run into illusions about Israel.

Israel as Protector for Black People?

Henry Myrttinen has researched_the_strange_sympathies for Israel in an extended way. He reports that a student activist in Manokwari stated:

I really don’t understand this whole Israel thing. I mean, look at it: it’s the Israelis that are taking away Palestinian land and the Israeli army is acting just like the TNI [Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Indonesian Armed Forces] is acting here, breaking human rights, shooting people … If we’re to identify with someone’s struggle, then it’s the Palestinians.

Even leaving aside Israel´s attitude to the Palestinians one should look at Israel´s political attitude towards Black people. The Falasha, Ethiopian_Jews, the “Black brothers in faith” were seduced to emigrate to Israel (and welcome as “gun fodder”), they given birth-control_without_their_consent. Anti-African_racism is widespread in Israel and is “white_supremacy” in practice. There are many records proving the open racism of open_racism_of_Netanyahu_and_many_officials in Israel! Disgusting incidents are reported about racist_excesses_in_Israel. And it seems there are infections of more racism in the US by Israel-trained_police. Any West Papuan thinking of refuge in Israel should think twice!

An Outlook

Unfortunately the Indonesian_left is not really to be seen and the political spectrum rather_unbalanced. In face of widespread growing_ethnic_and_religious_tensions in Indonesia this is highly regrettable. But on the long run the hidden Indonesian left and the formations of resistance against Javanese dominance in Indonesia should not generally be discarded as potential allies. Based on the insight that Indonesia is at least partly acting as a proxy colonial power in favor of Western resource greed there could hardly be trust in Western countries as allies. But important are anti-imperialist and anti-racist movements in the West. More attention by African and Carribbean societies would be desirable. In fact many Africans and African Americans are not even aware that they have sisters and brothers in suffering on the other side of the globe.

A clear and well based anti-imperialist ideological orientation is essential to make allies. Fake allies (like Israel) should be avoided, the more since that makes broader alliances more difficult. As dramatic as the situation is, it appears there is a long struggle ahead. And to be very clear about it: In the US Neocon_Think_Tanks there are plans even for Bio_Warfare against the Southern Hemisphere, East Asia and all non-Western countries!

As long as we don´t understand the overall concept of neoliberal globalized Capitalism with its extermination concepts – which are also at work in West Papua – we´ll not be able to build a broad front to end it!

Papua Merdeka!

Libyan Slavery: a Day of Fury in Berlin!

Yesterday a protest demonstration against the terrible sufferings inflicted on African migrants and excesses_of_slavery in Libya was held by Germany´s Black_Community in front of the Libyan embassy in Berlin. Several hundred people, members of the African community (from Berlin and Hamburg), Afro-Germans and German supporters expressed their anger and fury about the events in Libya. Unfortunately some people were obviously more interested in staging themselves and made the organization a bit difficult, but important contributions were given. The protests were disciplined and facing a relatively cooperative police. In all it was an impressive protest, though the event was after all confronting a Sturday-empty embassy. Luckily the US-American, French, British and German hands in the destruction of Libya which led to the disaster were mentioned. Possibly in the final analysis the protest should have been held in front of the US Embassy. We shouldn´t forget the “laughing_Lady”, crooked Hillary Clinton!

Is such a protest enough?

No doubt, such well based feelings of anger have to be expressed, but it would be bad if the relieve by shouting would be all. It is very clear, Colonialism_is_alive_and_still_going_strong! The US Empire – assisted by its foolish European vassals thus creating a “refugee crisis” for themself – is working hard to destroy all African independence and reduce Africa to resource-slavery, which “Happenings” like “G20_Africa_Partnership_Conference” will not make us forget. And_the_refugees_may_get_drowned! The inflicted destruction pushes also a dangerous “brain drain”. And it´s even going beyond that, US Power_Elite_declared_biowar_on_Africa!

Organization and Self Empowerment!

It should be obvious: Africa will not develop “with the West”, but only “against the West” taking into consideration the powers “that shouldn´t be” in the West! And “self victimization” wouldn´t help, likewise lamenting! The spirit of Lumumba, Nkrumah, Malcom X, Sankara and others has to return and be merged with further studies of the enemy, of self organization and economic self empowerment. Many Liberation movements stopped at official “Independence” and were neutralized after the “victory”, in which process surely the crumbling down of the East Block played an important role.

I remember an event in Berlin on the 29th August 2011 about the renaming of the “Gröbenufer” into “May_Ayim_Ufer”. In all the speeches no word was dropped about the those days ongoing Western war against Libya, which drove me mad. Today we can see the “success” of that war!

Symbolism and Fake Allies

In all these symbolic activities the German Green Party is always very active, but, “In the Libyan war, the Greens attacked the then Christian Democratic Union/Free Democratic Party government for not participating in the bombardment of the country. Last year, they were the strongest advocates of military intervention in Syria”, as “World_Socialist_Web_Site” describes.

It is hard to write – since I have no liking for those people – but maybe a whole number of xenophobes in Europe would be more reliable allies if they could be rightfully convinced that Europe´s help for the US lead destruction of Africa and Near and Middle East will confront them with migrant waves they can not dream of stopping!

And an important point is the general Peace Question. A common point of interest with broader sections of the German society would be to make them understand that for German interests it would be better to engage in the Eurasian Cooperation than in the develish destruction of Africa and Near East. Their “most important ally”, the US Power Elite, is not only the driving force in Africa´s destruction (eight_million_dead_in_DR_Congo_in_the_last_twenty_one_years), but also in the effort to make Europe the battle field of the mad warmongers war against Russia! Surely that necessary turn of German strategy would be the “nightmare_of_the_US_PowerElite”. Behind all this: excessive neoliberal globalized Capitalism!

After all, my dear African friends, there is a_long_struggle_ahead! Being 70 years old what I can do is exposing Imperialism and its hidden implications and agendas, and I will!

Libysche Sklaverei: ein Tag der Wut in Berlin!

Gestern, am Samstag, fand eine Protest-Demonstration vor der libyschen Botschaft in Berlin gegen die abscheulichen Exzesse des Menschenhandels in Libyen statt, veranstaltet von der Afrikanischen_Community in Deutschland. Afrikaner, Afrodeutsche und deutsche Unterstützer vornehmlich aus Berlin und Hamburg drückten ihren Zorn über die Ereignisse in Libyen aus. Es war eine eindrucksvolle Demonstration mit Hunderten von Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern, auch, wenn einige Leute die Organisation durch undiszipliniertes Verhalten nicht erleichterten. Die Demonstration verlief friedlich und die Polizei war relativ kooperativ.

Begrüßenswerterweise wurde die Rolle der USA, Frankreichs und Großbritanniens nicht unerwähnt gelassen, die durch den Krieg gegen Libyen die Katastrophe erzeugt haben. Dabei sei daran erinnert, dass die damalige Bundesregierung wenigstens bei der Abstimmung im Sicherheitsrat zur “Flugverbotszone” sich der Stimme enthalten hat, was ihr wohl eine “Erinnerung_des_grossen_Bruders” einbrachte. Letztendlich hätte man wohl vor der US-Botschaft demonstrieren sollen, man erinnere sich an Hillary Clintons Lachanfall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5g8kAvneeMo.

Auf jeden Fall war die Veranstaltung ein deutlicher Ausdruck allzu berechtigten Zornes.

Ist das alles genug?

Aber reicht es, seine Wut lautstark vor einer “Samstags-leeren” libyschen Botschaft auszudrücken? Es wäre bei Weitem zu wenig. Keine Frage, der_Kolonialismus_lebt_und_tobt_weiter! Auch Veranstaltungen wie die “G20_Afrika-Konferenz” können nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen. Der Westen gibt sich gerne als “Feuerwehr” aus und ist tatsächlich der Brandstifter! Die angebliche “Bekämpfung der_Fluchtursachen“ ist eine hohle Phrase. Aber es geht noch darüber hinaus, in den faschistischen Neocon Think Tanks wird vom “biologischen_Rassenkrieg” geträumt. Afrika soll offenbar in ewiger Rohstoff-Sklaverei gehalten werden.

Selbstorganisation, politisch, sozial und auch insbesondere wirtschaftlich

Die Annahme einer Opferrolle und Klagen sind nicht der Weg. Tatsächlich muss es einem klar werden, so wie die Dinge im Westen liegen, kann Afrika sich wohl nicht “mit dem Westen”, sondern nur “gegen den Westen” entwickeln! Das erfordert viel Arbeit und Enthusiasmus. Der Geist von Lumumba, Nkrumah, Malcolm X, Sankara und Anderen muss wiederbelebt werden und mit dem Studium der Gegner, der Organisation, Geo-Politik und autozentrierter Wirtschaft verknüpft werden. Leider sind die Erfolge des Befreiungskampfes in vielen Ländern nach dem vermeintlichen Sieg wieder zunichte gemacht worden, wobei der Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion wohl eine große Rolle spielte.

Symbolismus und falsche Verbündete

Forderungen nach Mahnmalen für die Opfer von Sklaverei und Kolonialismus nähren nur die alberne Illusion, der Kolonialismus sei vorbei. So sehr man sich über Straßen ärgern mag, die nach Kolonialisten benannt sind, das Ringen um Umbenennung darf nicht über die Notwendigkeit hinwegtäuschen, den Kolonialismus wirklich zu bekämpfen, es gibt kaum ein alberneres Wort als das vom “Post-Kolonialismus”. Ich erinnere mich an eine Veranstaltung_zur_Umbenennung des Gröben-Ufers in May-Ayim-Ufer am 29. August 2011. Zur gleichen Zeit fand der NATO-Krieg gegen Libyen statt. Nicht ein Wort fiel auf der Veranstaltung dazu, was mich sehr verärgerte.

Besonders die Grünen sind eifrig bei derartigen Alibi-Veranstaltungen dabei, haben sich aber auch bei der Zerstörung Libyens als “olivgrüne” Kriegspartei hervorgetan und die damalige Bundesregierung für ihre relative Zurückhaltung schwer angegriffen. Man höre dazu Cohn-Bandit, äh, Cohn-Bendit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkoJQDI5ENU

Friedenskampf gegen tödliches “Spiel”

Wir sollen auch nicht vergessen, dass zu den “grünen Lieblingen”, wie denen des weistlichen Mainstreams insgesamt, Paul Kagame gehört, der der US-Handlanger für die Zerstörung der DR Kongo ist und für über acht_Millionen_Tote dort verantwortlich zeichnet. Gerne wird medial übrigens die gezielte_Destabilisierung_Afrikas als das Ergebnis “Afrikanischer Barbarei” dargestellt.

Angesichts grüner Doppelzüngigkeit kann man fast noch eher Xenophoben – so unappetitlich sie mir sind – klarmachen, dass sie besser gegen die US-geführte Zerstörung Afrikas und des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens aufstehen sollten, anstatt vor Flüchtlingsheimen zu gröhlen, wenn sie nicht Flüchtlingsströme erleben wollen, die keiner mehr aufhalten könnte! Diese Politik zerstört ja nicht nur das Umfeld Europas, sondern könnte auch zur “Sprengung_Europas” führen. Die Friedensfrage ist bei Bündnissen von zentraler Bedeutung, denn die gleich US-Machtelite, die die Zerstörung der südlichen Hemisphäre orchestriert, müht sich auch, Europa zum Schlachtfeld ihres Krieges gegen Russland zu machen.

Keine Frage, meine afrikanischen Freunde, es wird ein langer Kampf, Afrika wirklich zu befreien und dafür zu sorgen, dass Menschen nicht mehr lebensgefährliche Fahrten unternehmen müssen, um Not, Krieg und Zerstörung zu entkommen. Es wird ein langer Kampf, dafür zu sorgen, dass die Bewohner des Kontinents seine Reichtümer selbst nutzen können und ihre Gesellschaften so entwickeln, dass sie nicht mehr zum Spielball des westlichen neoliberalen, globalisierten Raubtier-Kapitalismus werden.

Wenn ich mit meinen 70 Jahren mit der Entlarvung der Strategien der westlichen Machteliten und ihrer unmenschlichen Zielsetzungen ein wenig beitragen kann, wäre ich glücklich!

Quite often BBC is involved in Western propaganda, but three years ago they produced a very honest documentaion: „Rwanda´s Untold Story“, putting things concerning Rwanda, Burundi and DR Congo right. No wonder that the Kagame_regime_went_nuts over the documentation since the film delivers a compelling_case_of_Kagame_as_war_criminal.

In fact the docu works itself the hard way through all the myths Western media have spread about their darling Kagame and his RPF. It´s a „Must See“:

Having spread my new article “Africa: Crisis in Burundi? What´s Behind the Whole Turmoil?” (https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/africa-crisis-in-burundi-whats-behind-the-whole-turmoil/) via Twitter I found a diffuse answer by a Rwandan Tweep:

butera-tweets

I checked the Twitterer and found an alarming Tweet from the 14th of October:

butera-s-death-threat

In deed he seems to speak out a death threat against Human Rights Watch critics of Rwanda´s Kagame-Regime, saying „With these obsessive attacks on #Rwanda @hrw and @KenRoth confirm their death; they need holy transformation to resurrect, #HRWLies“! This could just be seen as „blabla“ if there wouldn´t be good reasons to believe that the Kagame regime murders_opponents like Col Patrick_Karegeya, former intelligence chief, in South Africa, or attemped to do so like with General_Nyamwasa also in South Africa. But the regime obviously doesn´t stop with Rwandan countrymen (dubbed as traitors) but takes at foreigners as well everywhere. Kagame seems to have had a hand also in the death_of_Komla_Afeke_Dumor, BBC Presenter of Ghanain origin (I_have_written_about_this_in_2015).

The strategy behind this appears to be: always deny, but let opponents be aware that we can reach them anywhere! Quote of Rwanda´s Minister of Defense, James Kabarebe:

Do not waste your time on reports that so and so was strangled with a rope on flat 7 in whatever country…When you choose to be a dog, you die like a dog, and the cleaners will wipe away the trash so that it does not stink for them. Actually, such consequences are faced by those who have chosen such a path. There is nothing we can do about it, and we should not be interrogated over it.

It follows patterns practiced by Kagames US masters, as spoken out by former_acting_CIA_director_Morell, and by Israel. This is called TERROR!

It´s up to critical journalists and analysts to be brave and stay upright against the Terror regime of Kagame and his attempts to intimidate critics!

rwanda-burundi

Every now and then “News” are propping up in the Western Media about Burundi indicating “Repression” and “misconduct” by the government. Even the UN is accusing the Burundian government of human rights violations and else. In September the New_York_Times writes about the UN condemning the Government with President Nkurunziza of “crimes against humanity”. It “reports” the crisis would have heated “when Mr. Nkurunziza announced his intention to run for a third term – a violation of Burundi´s Constitution”. Well, even BBC_had_to_admit that Burundi´s Supreme court decided the running for a third term would be legal since the first term started under extraordinary circumstances, being appointed by parliament in course of the Arusha agreements and not being elected in a popular vote.

Long Live the Double Standard!

The Western smear campaign against Burundi and Nkurunziza is the more astonishing since Western darling Presidents in Burundi´s surrounding are not respecting any limitation for their number of terms. Uganda´s President Yoweri_Museveni is on top since more than 30 years. Rwanda´s President Paul_Kagame, who invaded Rwanda with his RPF from Uganda and with heavy US support, is President since 2000 and has no limitation in terms (he must be suspected for ruthlessly murdering_critics abroad). DR Congo´s Joseph_Kabila is President since 2001. In Western media usually not many words are dropped about this when hitting on Burundi´s government. But it´s the same when it comes to other “good friends” of the West like for example the “lighthouse of Democracy” in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia. So what is the reason for Western hostility towards Burundi?

Much of Western rhetoric relates to the (fake) mainstream narrative on the tragedy in Rwanda shouting “genocide under way”, a dangerous alarmism of which the Guardian warned in 2015. All that though Burundis_real_social_divide_is_urban_and_rural. But Burundi´s problems might in fact have a lot to do with Rwanda, but in a different way than insinuated by the media. And Burundi´s government stands_in_the_way_of_the_US as Ann Garrison points out correctly.

The US Empire, “Their Man” Kagame and the Plunder of Congo

23 years ago the US Empire has installed the henchman Paul Kagame in Rwanda with a bloody war of aggression waged by the Uganda based RPF and decorated this with a monumental disinformation campaign making the world believe that the former Rwandan government would have planned a “Genocide against the Tutsi”. It was rather a Genocide against the Hutu majority. For the history of that tragedy read:

Half the Truth is a whole Lie! 20 Years of brazen Desinformation!https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2014/04/20/rwanda-half-of-the-truth-is-a-whole-lie-twenty-years-of-brazen-desinformation/

There is no doubt that the “Scramble for Africa” is going on and that Rwanda´s RPF regime is playing an essential part in it, as Robin Philpot correctly portrays in his book “Rwanda_and_the_New_Scramble_for_Africa”, likewise described by Finian_Cunningham. Coltan, Uranium, Cobalt, Gold diamonds and copper are “waiting for plunder”. Especially the US military is busy “winning_Africa”. Even the “Economist” though upholding the fake Western narrative about Rwanda´s tragedy admits the unholy role of Rwanda and ethnic Tutsis in DR Congo in an article of 2012.

An important role plays the rebel_group_M23 mostly made up of ethnic Tutsis, who were integrated into the Congolese army. Fights between_the_Congolese_army_and_M23 went also on this year. Despite the defection of Tutsi fighters to those rebel groups there is still Tutsi dominance said to prevail in DR Congo´s army. An example was also Laurent_Nkunda, and an example for the close relationship to the US via US Christian sectarianism as well.

The crisis sharpens obviously again in DR Congo, especially in the Kasai region (see links below). Trough the “complicated” conflicts “Big Brothers” hand (“well trained” in steering ethnic conflicts) is shining. The US Power Elite has long lasting experience in such operations also in the Middle East and the Balkans.

Possibly the Geo-Strategic Clou to the Story

In February 2016 it became obvious that Rwanda_is_recruiting_as_well_as_training_and_arming_Burundian_rebels in order to destabilize_Burundi and oust_the_Burundian_President. This most probably has the aim to plunge Burundi into chaos and sharpen ethnic conflicts, and then for Kagame and his RPF to appear as the “savior” of the Burundian Tutsi! Surely with the aim of installing a Tutsi dominated regime and possibly uniting the two countries, restituting a “glorious Tutsi Reign”.

What could be the further aims of Kagame and his US masters? Well, it might silence the slowly developing skepticism about Kagame´s role in Congo and fix again the “Genocide against the Tutsi” narrative. But much more important: it would broaden Kagame´s power basis for his plunder of the DR Congo in favor of Western resource policy. And a Coltan_processing_plant is built in cooperation with a Canadian Company in Rwanda, where_no_Coltan_is_to_be_found. Coltan is in Congo. But Rwanda is the World´s biggest Coltan exporter, guess how?!

Is it very absurd to speculate that Kagame´s plan (and that of his US masters) might be to unite Rwanda and Burundi for a broader power basis and thereafter split the Eastern part of DR Congo off, using militant Tutsi groups in Congo? If that costs thousands of lives in Burundi and more millions of lives in Congo, do you think the US Power Elite dominated by the US_Neocons_and_their_think_tanks would bother?

Nine Eleven 16 Years ago

The lies around that dramatic and deadly day are living on for 16 years now. Well, the lies about Kennedy´s assassination by the „Deep_State“ and the CIA are now living on for almost 54 years. It depends on the question of how strong the resistance against Imperialism will grow, whether that fundamental disinformation about Nine Eleven will survive that long.

Nine Eleven vor 16 Jahren

Vor 16 Jahren wurden die tödlichen Anschläge von Nine Eleven verübt. Seit 16 Jahren feiert die offizielle Lügenversion zu den Ereignissen fröhliche Urständ. Seit fast 54 Jahren überlebt auch die offizielle Desinformation zu Kennedys Ermordung durch den „Tiefen Staat“ und die CIA. Es wird davon abhängen wie stark sich der antiimperialistische Widerstand entwickelt, ob das Lügenmärchen zu Nine Eleven ebenso lange überlebt, oder ob die Welt sich von dem Lügengespinst befreien kann.

Hier ist aufgelistet, was auf diesem Blog zu Nine Eleven geschrieben wurde:

Uranium Coated Ammunition: US Military did it Again!

The disastrous effects of ammunition coated with Depleted_Uranium is well known though downplayed many times. US Forces used this dangerous type in the Gulf_War 1990 to 1991. They used it on the Balkans and in Afghanistan, and again in the Iraq War in 2003 on civilian_areas. A state doing such things would rightfully be called a Rogue State!

As the Washington_Post_reports US Forces did it again: they used this in Syria in November 2015, thousands of rounds! For a military being aware of the consequences this can only be seen as a war crime. And for a Government allowing this, one can only say: you represent a Rogue State! And for allies of such a State: to hell with all your talks about “Western Values” (in Dollar or in Euro?)! If you don´t kick the US military out of your country you´re complicit in those crimes!

If you want to know more about the deadly consequences of this ammunition, watch this video with English subtitles:

Uranummantelte Munition: US-Militär hat es wieder getan!

Seit langem sind die Gefahren_der_Benutzung von mit abgereichertem_Uran ummantelter Munition bekannt. Insbesondere die USA benutzten diese Munition im ersten Golfkrieg, in den Balkankriegen in Afghanistan und beim Überfall auf den Irak. Insbesondere die Benutzung_auf_dem_Balkan löste in Deutschland heftige Kontroversden aus. Im März 2015 behauptete ein Vertreter von CENTCOM, die USA würden keine derartige Munition im Irak und in Syrien einsetzen. Wie immer eine sehr “glaubwürdige” Äußerung.

Im Februar diese Jahres kam nun heraus, die USA_geben_den_Einsatz_von_Uranmunition_zu! Dieser Einsatz fand im November 2015 in Syrien statt. Ein Staat, dessen Führung so etwas tut, ist richtigerweise zu bezeichnen als Schurkenstaat! Wer sich über die Folgen solcher Einsätze informieren möchte, dem sei der Film “Tödlicher Staub” empfohlen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nulXor6JeRQ

Wann wachen wir endlich auf?!

Die USA zerstören nicht nur indirekt als Terror-Unterstützer und direkt durch Militäraktionen viele Länder und treiben Abertausende in Tod und Elend, sie zerstören die Umwelt in vielen Ländern gerade in der Umgebung Europas dauerhaft. Wie lange will Europa noch zuschauen und eine “helfende Hand reichen”, wenn die USA Zustände schaffen, die millionenfach Menschen in den “sicheren Hafen” Europa treiben müssen. In Deutschland steht die Bundestagswahl bevor, man sollte sich sehr genau anschauen, welche Parteien “in Nibelungentreue fest” zur US-Politik stehen! Würden die nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg gerade auch bei Gründung der UN verkündeten Prinzipien wirklich eine Rolle spielen, würden auf diese Staats-Schurken und ihre Unterstützer ein Nürnberger Prozess 2.0 warten!

Diese Polit-Monster sollen unsere “wichtigsten Verbündeten” sein, und der “Transatlantismus” soll “Staatsraison” sein? Dann gute Nacht, Deutschland und Europa. Wann begreifen wir: gilt noch das “nie wieder” der Nachkriegszeit, dann ist erbitterter Widerstand angezeigt!

Ach, und die Machtelite der USA nennt Nord-Korea eine Gefahr für die Welt.

No doubt, the US President has suprematist tendencies. No doubt, part of his followers are sick by Racism and ultra Nationalism. No doubt also that Racism is still a severe problem in the US and part of the West. At the same time there is the overall conflict between the US Power Elite and the World and the common US citizens as well. This conflict is a socio-economic one, but also endangers human life as such, it is a class conflict. The struggle for peace and social justice can in the end not be divided.

But division is the strategy of the Power Elite. They fared “well” with it for many, many decades, using “Race Conflicts”. It was mostly after the end of the Cold War that they changed tactics and declared the “Post Racial” era has begun. They needed “gun fodder” from all walks of life. But with the “overstretching” in their imperial wars and the economic stress from that on the US society the social conflicts sharpened (financial crisis hitting also many Whites) and people get more and more afraid for even nuclear confrontations.

So it seems that the Power Elite turns back to provocations for example by police_brutality_against_Black_Americans in order to sharpen the conflicts. This is the “Strategy_of_Tension”, also used for many decades. And they push from different sides. My impression is that via Soros_financed_structures the “Powers that (shouldn´t) be” also do also something to push leftist groups into the direction of eliminating Class Struggle by “Race Struggle”. And more dangerous: they´re presenting the Clinton gang (behind whom the Neocons_organize_their_Fascism) as the “lesser evil”. Surely many Whites can still easily be infected by “the fear for race war”, since they know what has been done to African Americans and still is done. They know how Europeans conquered the World. In fact White Americans are “illegal Immigrants” to “their country”, but the struggle for peace and justice could hardly be won without them.

A webpage permanently striving for clarity about these conflicts and struggles is the Black_Agenda_Report! And we need clarity in order not to fall into the traps, prepared for us by the US Power Elite and their political propagandists and henchmen in the media.

US Hypocracy, North Korea and US Economic War against Russia and Europe

People look almost hypnotized at the apparently growing tension between the US and North Korea. A US President who mostly won his campaign with the promise to deescalate the tension with Russia and who promised to get away from regime change wars has been brought “on track” by the “Deep State” of his country. This man doesn´t only by now fear for his life but can also be easily manipulated by his “intelligence” personal, since he´s ignorant and unprincipled. Those people behind know quite well that North Korea doesn´t pose any threat neither to its surrounding nor to the US.

As dubious as some aspects of North Korea might be, the regime only tries to have a guarantee for survival – the nuclear bomb. As much as I´d prefer a world without nuclear weapons, the US has thousands of them and is following a much, much more aggressive policy towards the world than North Korea. So what is all this about?

And the regime in North Korea didn´t say they´d attack Guam, but to send a rocket near by to demonstrate the potential. In a psy-op routine operation in the West this was turned into the announcement of an attack on Guam, a routine since the distorted Ahmadinjad quotation about Israel.

Let´s be clear: Trump will only do, what the real Power Elite is directing him to do. The Power Elite knows that the poor country in the North of the Korean Peninsula cann´t threaten them. They need the crisis as a legitimation for further military build up in the West Pacific to threaten China. Does the Power Elite want a big war with China? I assume that they want to repeat the strategy of the Cold War, in which they brought the Soviet Union to its knees by arms race. But the game is dangerous, since things could get “out of hand”. And the repetition of that “game” will probably fail because of China´s economic strength.

It can on the other side not totally be ruled out that The US Deep State would like to frighten China by pulverizing China´s poor little neighbour, like Hiroshima and Nagasaki where pulverized not so much out of military reasons but as a signal to Stalin.

Weird” question: would the Deep State like Trump to pull the trigger for that in order to “hold him accountable” lateron and “bring him to justice”, means impeachment? Send the message to China and “kill” their own messenger afterwards? Sounds in deed far fetched but not absurd!

What else?

The US have entered into an economic war against Russia and Europe as well. That has stirred resistance also in sections of European politics and economy. This resistance needs support from the people in the European countries. But the public discussion about that massive power abuse by the US is almost dead because of the growing war fear created by that war hype about North-Korea! Exactly that might at least be a “collateral advantage” by the created crisis for the US, if at this time not even the real aim.

Deutsche Version

Die Heuchelei der USA, Nordkorea und der Wirtschaftskrieg der USA gegen Russland und Europa

Wie gebannt starren die Menschen auf die eskalierende Krise zwischen den USA und Nord-Korea. Ein US-Präsident, der die Wahl wesentlich mit dem Versprechen gewonnen hat, zur Deskalation mit Russland zu kommen und die Regime-Change-Kriege zu beenden, droht Nord-Korea mit “Feuer und Wut” (“Fire and Fury”). Warum das Ganze? Wie groß ist die Kriegsgefahr in Wirklichkeit?

Trump ist mittlerweile weitgehend “auf die Linie” der US-Machtelite und ihres “Tiefen Staates” gebracht. Er fürchtet um sein Leben und ist in Unkenntnis und Prinzipienlosigkeit weitgehend von den Einflüsterungen seiner Militärs und Geheimdienstleute abhängig. Die wissen sehr wohl, dass Nord-Korea, wie wenig symphatisch man das Regime finden mag, weder für seine Umgebung noch erst recht die USA eine Gefahr ist. Die Regierung will die Atombombe lediglich als “Lebensversicherung”. So wenig, wie ich Atomwaffen überall mag: die USA haben tausende davon und sind der Welt gegenüber erheblich aggressiver als Nord-Korea! Merken die Menschen nicht, was sich hier für eine Heuchelei abspielt?!

Tatsächlich hat Nord-Korea auch nicht mit einem Erstschlag gegen den US-Stützpunkt Guam gedroht (wie sich die Medien überschlagen zu behaupten), sondern angekündigt, Raketen bis dicht an Guam zur Demonstration des Potentials zu schicken. Aber das Verfälschen von Zitaten ist spätestestens seit der Verdrehung von Ahmadinadschads Worten zu Israel “Routine”.

Tatsächlich ist die US-erzeugte “Krise” die willkommene Legitimation zum weiteren militärischen US-Aufmarsch im West-Pazifik, um China zu bedrohen. Wollen die USA aber wirklich Krieg mit China? Wahrscheinlicher ist, dass die US-Machtelite glaubt, die “Totrüstungs-Strategie”, die im Kalten Krieg die Sowjetunion in die Knie gezwungen hat, wiederholen zu können. Das ist allerdings angesichts von Chinas Wirtschaftstärke wenig aussichtsreich und auch hochriskant.

Allerdings kann man sich fragen, ob die US-Machtelite direkt vor “Chinas Nase” ein Exempel statuieren will, indem es den armen kleinen Nachbarn pulverisiert. Auch der Atombombenabwurf auf Hiroshima und Ngasaki war nicht so sehr von militärischem Kalkül als vielmehr eine Botschaft an Stalin. Und man könnte hinterher sogar den “verrückten Präsidenten” zur Verantwortung ziehen. Erst die Botschaft schicken, dann den eigenen Boten “köpfen”, “sorry”! Nun, hoffentlich ist dies eine gar zu wilde Spekulation.

Was könnte noch hinter dem “Kriegs-Hype” stecken?

Gerade eben erst hat der US-Kongress auch Russland und Europa den Wirtschaftskrieg erklärt, was nun doch in Europas Politik und Wirtschaft erheblichen Widerstand erzeugt hat. Aber dieser Widerstand brauchte die Unterstützung der Bevölkerung, den gesellschaftlichen Diskurs. Davon ist nun nicht mehr viel übrig, die Menschen sind auf die Korea-Krise fixiert, anstatt zu begreifen, dass Schluss sein muss mit der “Nibelungentreue” zum “Großen Bruder”. Dieses „Vergessen“ des Wirtschaftskrieges könnte nun wirklich zumindest ein “Kollateral-Nutzen” der US-Politik sein, wenn nicht sogar ein wesentliches Ziel des Kriegs-Hypes.

US Sanctions: Will Europe Finally Wake up?!

The US Congress is preparing new sanctions against Russia, and this has to be clear, against most parts of Europe as well, since the sanctions are clearly against European economic interests. And those sanctions are also directed against Trump´s still existing wish_to_reduce_deadly_tensions between the US and Russia. Obviously the US (Neocon) Power Elite has strengthened its grip on the US Congress significantly. After a long time of mostly depending on the Republicans they nowadays have the Democratic Party under extensive control (Clinton was their spearhead for that purpose). Now they count on vast sections of representatives of both parties and Trump was literally moved aside so_that_the_conflict_with_Russia_can_proceed.

What is driving the US Power Elite?

The “game” becomes more and more dangerous. but the US Power Elite goes on. They are driven by their nightmare, which_is_attempted_Eurasian_Cooperation, being in the economic interest of China, Russia and vast parts of Europe. How long will the EU and more important, the souvereign states of Europe allow that Power Elite to decide their fate? How long will they allow the “Deep_State” of the US to make them all US vassals? The European polititians fear Terror_attacks (mostly initiated by that US Deep State) and they fear for their personal lives. But if Europeans do not stand up against that US domination and against their own fears, the US Neocons will make Europe the battlefield against Russia. We should know about the Fascism_in_Neocon_Think_Tanks. And US warmongers like George Friedman are preaching_war_openly. Europe, wake up!

US-Sanktionen: wird Europa endlich aufwachen?!

Nun hat der US-Kongress neue_Sanktionen_gegen_Russland gegen Russland vorbereitet. Tatsächlich richten sich diese Sanktionen genauso gegen_europaeische_Wirtschaftsinteressen und sollen wohl auch US-Interessen_im_Energiebereich durchsetzen. Aber ebenso sind diese wohl dafür gedacht, Trumps weiterhin bestehende Versuche_um_Entspannung_mit_Russland zu torpedieren, worüber in den USA ein Machtkampf_tobt. Die (Neocon) Machtelite der USA hat sich inzwischen auch großer Teile der Demokratischen Partei bemächtigt und dirigiert damit weitgehend Kongress wie Senat. Die Speerspitze der Neocons bei dieser “Übernahme” war fraglos Hillary_Clinton.

Was treibt die US-Machtelite?

Diese “Spiele” der US-Machtelite mit der Eskalation sind nicht nur teuer, sondern auch brandgefährlich. Was treibt die US-Machtelite zu diesem Handeln? Die Machtelite kämpft um absolute Dominanz in der Welt. Dabei ist ihr Alptraum die Bemühung die “Eurasische Kooperation” von China bis Europa, wie sie sich in der “eisernen_Seidenstrasse” manifestiert. Für diese Machtelite hat der “Kalte Krieg” kein wirkliches Ende gefunden. Europa ist dabei nicht nur eine Ansammlung von Vasallen, sondern auch gefährliche Konkurrenz in wirtschaftlichger und finanzieller Hinsicht. Man könnte fast sagen, es führt eine gerade Linie von Nine_Eleven_zur_Sprengung_Europas. Die Neocon-Machtelite schreckt dabei nicht davor zurück, die “Schock-Strategie_gegen_Europa anzuwenden.

Ein besonderes Augenmerk des „Imperiums“ richtet sich dabei auf das Verhältnis zwischen Deutschland und Russland, wie der “Neocon-Denk-Knecht” George Friedman in aller Offenheit ausführt:

Tatsächlich sollten wir erkennen, dass in den Neocon-Thinktanks_Faschismus grassiert. Europa, wache endlich auf!
