Why are you telling LIES in headlong flight mode from your own topic/thread on a public message board or don’t you think that it was significant that Nelson Mandela’s first foreign trip on being freed from jail was to Havana, not Washington DC, London, Paris or Bonn?The topic of this thread is Mandela. I'm not going to engage your off topic rants.
What can you tell me about the REAL Nelson Mandela? The Mandela who orchestrated an armed struggle from his jail cell in Robben Island? What can you tell me about the role his Thembu Elders played in founding the ANC and Ethiopian movement in Southern Africa?
What can you tell me about the military training and support he got from my Oromo Elders in the early 60s and the military training camps he was instrumental in establishing in Ethiopia and Tanzania?
How/why is it my fault that I’ve seen the footage of the REAL Nelson Mandela in Havana literally begging Fidel Castro to come to South Africa after very profusely thanking Fidel for his contribution to South Africa’s liberation struggle; along with the footage of Fidel Castro’s rapturous thank you from the ANC in South Africa’s Parliament, how would you explain these events NEVER EVER making it/being shown by the Western mass media or ever being mentioned by YOU and your ilk [if you and your professors truly know so much] in this thread/discussion/debate?
Now who’s RANTING, totally ignoring the ongoing mass media blackout as to Nelson Mandela's efforts to highlight/thank Fidel Castro and the Cuban people for being so instrumental in his being freed [crushing the SADF in Angola], and why aren’t YOU addressing assertions/answering questions in your own thread? I think you need to spend more time addressing those among us who are spitting on Mandela's grave and denouncing him as a sell out. But I'm not the one. Mayibuye!
How could the MPLA/Cuban coalition have achieved air superiority without the Cuban pilots and why haven’t YOU or anyone else mentioned the fact that Cuba sent 55 000 volunteers to Angola, without which Nelson Mandela knew he would have probably died in prison as opposed to as a free man/first President of African ethnicity of South Africa?
Are YOU denying that the SADF’s defeat in Angola has NEVER EVER been published anywhere outside of Southern Africa, nor has there EVER been any mass media coverage of Nelson Mandela’s so public thank you visit to Havana, and Fidel Castro’s subsequent thank you visit to South Africa to be thanked by the ANC in South Africa’s Parliament?
Haven’t you noted the manner in which their mass media TODAY is STILL attempting to say that Apartheid collapsed/Mandela was freed due to pressure/economic sanctions/white benevolence, which were a SHAM weren’t they in that the USA, UK and the west were covertly supporting South Africa’s Apartheid regime [a fact that only Maggie Thatcher was EVER honest about, with David Cameron part of a group of Conservative MP’s publicly lobbying for Nelson Mandela to be hanged] as opposed to the very comprehensive manner in which a modern white army was CRUSHED by a modern comparably equipped non-white/African army in Angola in 1987/8, breaking formal Apartheid in South Africa’s back?
You haven’t mentioned the manner in which Samora Machel/Freelimo was so maliciously executed by the South Africans literally blasting his civilian airliner out of the sky, who along with Steve Biko, Patrice Lumumba, and countless other like Sekarna in Bukino Fasso aren’t they all part of the very long list of African leaders/heroes who have lost their lives in the ongoing WAR for African freedom, in Africa?
However weren’t the Cuban initiatives in Africa very very different in that as so spectacularly highlighted by the 55 000 Cuban volunteers who eventually went to Angola [thousands of whom fought, died and were crippled] to assist the MPLA; they weren’t there for booty, to secure BIG OIL or various other corporate interests; which is literally unprecedented, isn’t it [or haven’t you noted BIG USA OIL’s carve up of Iraq replacing the French and German companies Saddam had done deals with] as highlighted by their departure from the region once Namibia was freed and formal Apartheid was dismantled?
Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?
