This Day of Reconcilation in South Africa was under Apartheid a day of infamy, of Dingaan’s treachery. That Zulu “infamy” against threatening European colonizers pales into insignificance in comparison with genocides committed by “first-world” governments through the 19th into the 21st centuries.
Growing passive (let alone active) genocide orchestrated by the electorally defeated “Government” of Zimbabwe mounts – that has turned what was once a highly productive country into a literal deathpit cesspool of cholera, just as the ANC government has by denial allowed genocide in RSA from untreated AIDS, including violence repeatedly encouraged – by example and exhortation- by the leader of the ANC.
And yet the ANC government, the other Southern African countries being burdened by contagious dying refugees, and the “United Nations” of the world sit by and mouth futilities over Zimbabwe’s dissolution.
Like Apartheid’s and the ANC’s gangs, Mugabe’s gang reputedly has stolen fortunes stashed in banks around the world. But world leaders do nothing, while China recently airfreighted arms into Zimabwe to fortify the government gangsters.
But Government gangsters have solid precedent. The USA (and UK) only 6 years ago launched, and continue to wage, the biggest assault ever on a single country- Iraq- for the sole purpose of control and theft of black gold. And during that genocidal unilateral war, the electorates of USA and UK re-elected their govenments to continue their warmongering- for- profit of the past forty years under the malignant inspiration of Henry Kissinger, Milton Friedman and his Chicago Boys – the hawkish Kissinger’s vulture disciples from that “cold war” era – Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz and the Bushes-
the same disaster- capitalism gang that has since then oppressed the masses globally including in Africa – especially South Africa under both the Apartheid gang and Mbeki-Zuma ANC gang they cut deals with, and now Zimbabwe, where the new capitalists are Mugabe’s Gang.
While surplus people die en mass.
As President Mbeki said infamously and effectively of his role model President about 2 years ago: “Dear Mr Mugabe, please do the right thing – whither thou leadest, we must follow.”
And lo, it happens- the next, ie current, President of the ANC (and thus South Africa, since the interim president Motlanthe cravenly does what the ANC dictates- ) this very week has his country’s UN delegate veto otherwise universal condemnation of Mugabe, while hundreds of Mugabe’s former supporters die daily of easily preventible cholera and starvation, for want of water treatment let alone jobs and thus currency, food, drugs, doctors, nurses, electricity.
