Empire- Colombia, Venezuela, Ethiopia, Rwanda & Tory Wankers- Edition

The Colombian army installed its third military base with 1,000 troops on the border with Venezuela, the Colombian government said on Monday. Governor of northeastern department Norte de Santander Luis Morelli said the base, the third to be established this year, will begin operations in October in the Catatumbo border region.

One brigade is based in Cucuta city and is already operating in Norte de Santander and a mobile base is patrolling across Ocana province. Colombia and Venezuela share 2,219 km of border that is often illegally crossed by armed groups who extort, kidnap and smuggle drugs and gasoline.

Somehow this isn’t getting the attention the RCTV issue got. Meanwhile the Empire’s Ethiopian proxies are accused of stealing aid and using starvation as a military tactic-

the Ethiopian government is putting hundreds of thousands of people at risk of starvation by blockading emergency food aid and choking off trade to eastern parts of the country. The area affected is home to the Ogaden National Liberation Front – a rebel group that has opposed the current government. One humanitarian official accused Ethiopia of trying to starve out the population. He said “If something isn’t done on the diplomatic front soon, we’re going to have a government-caused famine on our hands.” The official refused to be quoted by name because he feared reprisals against aid workers. The New York Times also reports the U.S.-backed Ethiopian military and its proxy militias have been siphoning off millions of dollars in international food aid and using a UN polio eradication program to funnel money to pro-government fighters. 

Will the conservatives condemn this from their genocide PR HQ in Rwanda? Will noted humanitarian and man of compassion Peter Lilley-

Lilley’s remarks at that party conference took the form of a pastiche of a Gilbert and Sullivan song. He said he “had a little list” of people he wanted to “root out” including “young ladies who get pregnant just to jump the housing list”.

demand transparency in that process? Oh and just one question in regard to that Mr. Cameron, which party was in power when the Rwandan genocide happened? Hint- You’re now it’s leader.

John Major’s government was most definitely warned, because during the build-up to genocide, the violence, hate propaganda and militia increased in scope and power. In the weeks before the genocide, the Belgian ambassador to the UN tried desperately to persuade the permanent members of the security council that it was five minutes to midnight in Rwanda and that their mission urgently needed reinforcing and a stronger mandate. But the warnings were to no avail. The US and the UK were against a stronger mandate.

· We call upon the Government of the United States of America to cease from occupation of any part of British land and withdraw its military powers round this world as we call upon all Governments everywhere to cease their occupation and control of any foreign territories. And for support of this Declaration, we, the representatives of a more gentle and peaceful persuasion, mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honour.· And, with specific reference to this gathering today, we, the under-mentioned, do solemnly demand the return of the land, once within the boundaries of the ancient townships of Birstwith, Felliscliffe, Norwood and Menwith, now occupied by the United States National Security Agency and their military forces.

· We do also solemnly demand that any connection with, or preparation for, the American Missile Defense programme at NSA Menwith Hill and other such places ceases forthwith. We are despairing that the American Government continues to over shadow Earth, Sea, Air and now Space throughout and beyond this most magnificent of Planets.

· We utterly reject the notion that the Government of the United States should claim Space for itself. We will bring into use every sinew of our bodies to peacefully prevent the Earth, Sea, Air and Space from being overwhelmed by the American Missile Defense programme.

· We encourage the United States of America and all governments of the world to uphold the keeping of International Laws and Treaties thus ensuring that the Heavens and every corner of the Earth are free from domination and greed.

· We use our intelligence to imagine the consequences of the space around our dear planet Earth and other Celestial Bodies being filled with weapons of desperate destruction. We speak from our hearts which beat in terror at the legacy we might leave the children of this world.

· Once again, we call upon all American people connected with the workings at NSA Menwith Hill to imagine our roles reversed and to remember their own ancestors’ Declaration of Independence from our ancestors.
