Decades, maybe centuries from now….if the planet hasn’t drastically changed by then…. we will speak about the second scramble for Africa, similar to that which occurred after the berlin conference.
“The Berlin Conference was Africa’s undoing in more ways than one. The colonial powers superimposed their domains on the African continent. By the time independence returned to Africa in 1950, the realm had acquired a legacy of political fragmentation that could neither be eliminated nor made to operate satisfactorily.”*
In 1884 at the request of Portugal, German chancellor Otto von Bismark called together the major western powers of the world to negotiate questions and end confusion over the control of Africa. Bismark appreciated the opportunity to expand Germany’s sphere of influence over Africa and desired to force Germany’s rivals to struggle with one another for territory.
At the time of the conference, 80% of Africa remained under traditional and local control. What ultimately resulted was a hodgepodge of geometric boundaries that divided Africa into fifty irregular countries. This new map of the continent was superimposed over the one thousand indigenous cultures and regions of Africa. The new countries lacked rhyme or reason and divided coherent groups of people and merged together disparate groups who really did not get along.”

“I hate imperialism. I detest colonialism. And I fear the consequences of their last bitter struggle for life. We are determined, that our nation, and the world as a whole, shall not be the play thing of one small corner of the world”

“We cannot go resolutely forward unless we first realize or alienation. We have taken everything from the other side. Yet the other side has given use nothing except to sway us in its direction through a thousand twists, except lure us, seduce us, and imprison us by ten thousand devices, by a hundred thousand tricks. To take also means on several levels being taken. It is not enough to try and disengage ourselves by accumulating proclamations and denials. It is not enough to reunite with the people in a past where they no longer exist. We must rather reunite with them in their recent counter move which will suddenly call everything into question; we must focus on that zone of hidden fluctuation where the people can be found, for let there be no mistake, it is here that their souls are crystalized and their perception and respiration transfigured.”

Hollande’s Mali campaign seen as pretext to snatch resources
‘France needs new leader to fight colonial temptations’
Most people who are directly descended from ancient Alkebulan will not protest France’s current sourjorne into Mali for two reasons.
(1) The alleged claim of fighting Islamic Jihadists, the current bogey man, the UN, western countries and their lackyes use as an excuse to invade sovereign nations under the guise of installing democracy.
(2) Since George Bush the elder, invaded Iraq, Alkebulan has been under overt miltary occupation. This is an occupation much different than the behind the scene acts that John Perkins details in the confessions of an Economic Hitman. Due to the confluence of the lies around 911, having Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice at the fore front of Bush Jr’s own excursions into Baghdad, most of us have further excused the neo European invasion of Alkebulan.
Once again Alkebulan is the staging ground for religious competition and crusades, as of old. On one side is Christianinsanity, on the other side is Arabism and left to pick up the pieces are the Zionist, who are part of a white supremacist administration who disguise themselves as detached from the fray, even while they encourage American genocide in North East Alkebulan (middle east) and the rest of Alkebulan, the Caribbean, south of America, the south pacific, southern and south-east Asia.
Why can’t we have a rallying cry such as Never Again?
