THE people of Zimbabwe will continue to maintain that truth is the mightiest weapon in their arsenal; supported by African self-integrity. Mindful that as an African you have every right by the Laws of Nature that birth you from the land and soil of Zimbabwe to stand firm.
This ongoing Colonial War is a fight over the Crown Jewel of Africa: Zimbabwe. Remain vigilant.
“I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK Jr.)
It is a civic responsibility to know the truth of your present state of affairs; and why America, England, Canada, the European Union, Japan, and aggressive corporations of capitalism are now descending on the citizens of Zimbabwe. Stand firm and protect what is yours and the children of your future will bless you forever.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” (MLK Jr.). Where have MDC-T leadership always resided in difficult in times, in Zimbabwe or foreign places of comfort and convenience?
It is beyond diabolical for anyone to allow or use chemical warfare by way of cholera to effect “regime change.”
Why is it that opposition leaders continue live outside of Zimbabwe and expect the citizens in Zimbabwe to do the dirty work destabilizing their own government in order to assist in the financial ruin and national destruction of their home?
Holy Archbishops Desmond Tutu and John Sentamu, both professors of Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, and Diplomat Kofi Annan, all to this day have remained silent on the true cause of and Western influence of 800,000 plus African Christians massacred in two months for their real estate in Rwanda. The three disappeared during that time.
None of these Western connected politicians are presently vocal on the devastating crisis occurring in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Why? Yet, they find time to haul over Zimbabwean Government's “divine right” not to bow down like a slave and submit to superficial colonizers and their African agents of regime change.
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men…. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. (MLK Jr.)
Scientific powered Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Archbishop Bishops Tutu and Sentamu, Diplomat Annan, Politician Odinga and Morgue Tsvangirai have not answered my question to locate one nation, territory, section, community, neighborhood, tribe, or basement that a European nation settled and did not establish hell and death for the Native inhabitants; whether in Africa, Asia, and/or North and South America. Name one location?
In the name of civilization, history, and religion I implore you to name just one single solitary place on God’s Earth where European education and diplomacy can display proof of European civility in a non European location?
You cannot name a single place. Because, arrogant racist western culture represent the world’s greatest troublemakers and warlords; who’s well documented histories are a judgment and testament to their past deeds that you six totally ignore legalistically and ecclesiastically. By what turn of events have European and American neo-Colonizers become exemplars of Christian moral principles and initiators of peace, health, and civilization. If western civilization is so sweet and desiring why shove down the national mouths of African nations? Why force feed democracy at the barrel of a gun and implementation and threats of additional sanctions?
To beat a nation down while on its knees, at the same point in time, as it is fighting for self-government and integrity as a black African people; in their own land; speaks of the type of corporate masters Rice, Tutu, Sentamu, Annan, Odinga, and Tsvangirai reverence just for western kudos. You six are wolves in wolves clothing.
Contemplate this: cholera breaks out mysteriously in Zimbabwe and six black politicians call on warlords and former colonizers to add additional economic sanctions to the very victims of the cholera outbreak? In addition, the six beg and plead with European and American governments to overthrow a sovereign African government?
I am reminded of the peculiar behavior of enslaved Africans victimized within the American slaveocracy (Peculiar Institution). There were two types of enslaved Africans fighting for freedom. One type fought against the institutions of slavery to abolish it wherever found. And, the other enslaved African fought against slavery because they did not enjoy there position as a slave, but preferred to be in the position as a slave-master or enslaver.
Archbishop of York John Sentamu says: "Mugabe and his henchmen must now take their rightful place in The Hague and answer for their actions. The time to remove them from power has come." He says: “The time has come for Robert Mugabe to answer for his crimes against humanity”
The Hague? How does the Honorable Robert Gabriel Mugabe qualify for The Hague Court, a court that US President George W. Bush does not recognize as a civilized court?
According to the Global Policy Forum the “US Opposition to the International Criminal Court - The United States government has consistently opposed an international court that could hold US military and political leaders to a uniform global standard of justice…The Bush administration, coming into office in 2001 as the Court neared implementation, adopted an extremely active opposition. Washington began to negotiate bilateral agreements with other countries, insuring immunity of US nationals from prosecution by the Court. As leverage, Washington threatened termination of economic aid, withdrawal of military assistance, and other painful measures. These exclusionary steps clearly endanger the fledgling Court and may seriously weaken its credibility and effectiveness.
Archbishop what happened to Reparations for Africans from the onslaught of Slavery and Apartheid Colonialism in America and Africa?
“However, the Hague - is not a good way to go about it. It is a kangaroo court, that states do as I say NOT as I do. The U.S. and U.K are immune to any persecutions from this court or system of justice. It is therefore seen as a tool that is good for everyone else to be judged by, but the standards cannot apply to those who set up the court. Why then would anyone respect this court?...It basically calls for ‘you can judge me’, I however cannot judge you.” (Posted Comment in the International Herald Tribune July 2008).
“Hague Invasion Act”: Bush Signs a New Law Designed to Intimidate Countries That Ratify the Treaty for the International Criminal Court. President George Bush signed into law the American Service-Members Protection Act of 2002, which will supposedly protect U.S. Service-Members from the International Criminal Court. (Democracy Now – War and Peace Report 08/06/02)
The new law authorizes the use of military force to liberate any American or citizen of a U.S.-allied country being held by the court. This provision, dubbed the “Hague invasion clause,” has caused a strong reaction from U.S. allies around the world, particularly in the Netherlands.
People of Zimbabwe, maintain your faith in your Constitution and Faith in the God of your African ancestors.
I wrote an article “Are the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and sanctions ethical or legal?” and surmised that: Rich and powerful enterprises and nations of the West decide to correct perceived wrongs of a small mineral rich poor nation. The West decides that to alleviate this poor nation’s (Zimbabwe) condition or alleged tyranny is to economically squeeze the life out of its agriculture, trade, Reserve Bank, and social welfare”. And, this is considered a humanitarian act in European culture. (The Zimbabwe Guardian Thu, 27 Dec 2007)
“Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the LORD will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them.” - Proverbs 22:22-23
“He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich—both come to poverty.” - Proverbs 22:16
“The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall." - Proverbs 18:11
Quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the war-mongering archbishops and diplomats:
‘Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
