Not by the bread only…Stop all arms shipment to Africa! (November 25, 2008)


Note: The recurrence of civil wars and genocides, in a cyclical pattern, in Africa and recently in the Congo (Zaire), Somalia, and Sudan required the courage to come forward.


The general state of under nourishment, disease plagued, and horror mass killing patterns in most of Africa is the result of States getting their independence from Colonial Powers after their traditional social and political structures were obliterated without establishing alternatives that suited the majority of the people or were trained to practice it on their own for any duration.  The tendency of attributing the under-development of the African States on the basis of their GNP or other economic production criteria are shot-cuts to avoid investigating the sources of this under-developed condition because they do not honor the “civilized nations” who dominated these States for centuries.

In just the last three decades, over one hundred military conflicts in over 30 States were being waged around the world; most of them were hate conflicts among tribes, races, ethnic groups and sectarian sects.  Over 30 millions were displaced and more on the run.  Famine and diseases and under-development followed, killing millions more. As a consequence, the European States and the USA have enacted stringent regulations to limit the flow of political refugees.  Let us focus and recall the African States that experienced genocide on regular basis: South Africa, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, Namibia, Algeria, Rwanda, Congo, Nigeria, Niger, Liberia, Sera Leon, Ivory Coast, Chad, Somalia and other smaller States and the cycle resumes its horror stories with no fundamental resolution for even medium-term period.  You will also recognize that most of these vast States are rich in precious raw materials such as oil, Equatorial Forests, diamond, gold, uranium and other metals.


I am inclined to believe that main factor of under-development is fundamentally a socio-political structure or an amalgamation of “juntas’ theocratic caste” systems taking control, governing, and running States.  I insist on the term theocratic because whatever predominant religions they claim to legally recognize these religions sects are at best skin deep.  The true religions and sects in under-developed States are variations on “paganism” (I am not offering a bad connotation for the term pagan but a description for the fundamental differences with the religious monotheist system in developed States, including atheism as a right).  Thus, the various tribes are attached to ancestral system of beliefs that are not officially or publicly stated.  These tribes or castes are closed autonomous communities that tend to regard the other tribes as enemies to the survival of their autonomies. The frequent occurrences of modern day genocides are fundamentally based on deep rooted theocratic caste systems.  Governments in under-developed States are formed of select castes and the rebellions, revolutions and genocides are outlets to re-shape the institutions according to the victors and governing under a different set of theocratic castes.

Most of the under-developed States that are not predominantly dominated by one recognized religion or sect will be facing recurring civil disturbances and thus lost opportunities for economical stability and development regardless of the magnitude of foreign infusions of money. Late Mai Ghoussoub mentioned the case of Ngoyambi, a 17-year old of the Hutu tribe in Rwanda, who is facing trial for mass genocide against the Tutsi tribe. Ngoyambi has no remorse and claimed that he won’t be afraid “if the judge is from the Hutu tribe because then he would not be wrongly found guilty”

Before the colonial mandates in Africa there was many skirmishes among the “tribes” but they were governed by social rules and very localized and of countable casualties.  Nowadays, these frequent skirmishes have acquired large scale magnitude in horrors and efficiency because of the despotism of theocratic juntas of castes after the “independence” of these States and the availability of efficient killing equipments sold by arm merchant connections that are themselves subsidized and managed by the superpower central States.

All the militias in all these conflicts harbor the same behavior and attitudes; they raise high their Kalashnikov, they show their cigarettes in the same manner, they take nonchalant breaks, and then they are up to resume their dirty immoral killing and maiming as regular jobs. They all claim to follow orders from superiors and they are not that worried of being persecuted in justice. Most of the militias are barely over 16 and in Africa 10-year old were recruited (the most lethal and scary midget assassins).  In some countries almost a fifth of the population participated in the war, directly or indirectly, and they all got used to observing the massacres and blood shed and humiliations.

I would like all those who gave orders to kill and maim, from the highest to the lowest ranking, politicians and military men, to be executed by specialized tribunals (not this puny International Court Tribunal that selects a very few samples of criminals).  I would like the arms merchants and those officially subsidized by the superpower States and their officials to be executed.


The liberal press and TV networks, in the Western “civilization”, loath to pinpoint the causes of these genocides; they claim that they don’t comprehend how human kind can reach such a low level of behavior.  What don’t you understand?!
