The Hypocrisy of the West, Others
– To those who claim they support us; ‘do not support ONLY in rhetoric but put down financial resources’.
– We will win because God is on our side.
The ‘almighty’ United States has suddenly become Biya’s friend because he (Biya) granted them ‘laisser-passez’ to the ‘Grand North’ to exploit newly discovered Uranium in the name of helping them with BOKO HARAM. As sheepish as other Western countries have traditionally been behind the Americans – Canada, the UK and others have all just lined up! Not to talk of the resource-starve France that has no option but to work with a dictator for their ends. We must remember that the resolve of the West against the black South Africans during the apartheid era was even stronger; the black South Africans won ‘BIGLY’, notwithstanding.
My Comment: In 1990, Nelson Mandela visited the U.S. for the first time after being freed from 27 years of imprisonment in South Africa. During Mandela’s visit he also conducted his first interview with Ted Koppel of ABC News. Koppel was then known as one of the toughest and most feared TV reporters and interviewers in America. His ABC news show, “Nightline”, was one of the top rated late night programs on television.
In his interview with Mandela, he asked why he (Mandela) had made friends with those whom the West considers as abusers of human rights; Yasser Arafat (former Palestinian leader), Col. Gaddafi (of Lybia) and Fidel Castro (of Cuba). Mandela’s response which shamed and disgraced the interviewer, received standing ovation from the audience.
Hear him; “One of the mistakes which some political analysts make is to think their enemies should be our enemies. Our attitude towards any country is determined by the attitude of that country to our struggle. Yasser Arafat, Colonel Gaddafi [and] Fidel Castro support our struggle to the hilt. There is no reason whatsoever why we should have any hesitation about hailing their commitment to human rights as they’re being demanded in South Africa… They do not support [the anti-apartheid struggle] only in rhetoric; they are placing resources at our disposal for us to win the struggle. That is the position”.
Now, SCACUF MUST hasten up the election of an interim Prime Minister, PM so that the loyalty of our people will shift from La Republique’s president to our own [president]. Our PM will also begin making trips abroad to friendly nations and just like South Africa, will also make our friends who’ll support not just in rhetoric but will place resources at our disposal. Our interim PM should meet all those who open their hands to embrace us. Although the Russians may not have much interest in the Gulf of Guinea, they may want to play politics by coming there to throw sand into the eyes of the French. They may want to be involved just to make sure that where the Americans and French are, they too want to be there to neutralise their presence.
…And whatever the case, God is on our side. He is a God of the oppressed.
From a federalist to an ‘independentist’. The Southern Cameroons MUST be free.
