US State Department Faults LRC Military in Viral Video, Calls For Investigations And Sanctions

The United States Department has issued a rare public rebuke of La Republique Du Cameroun-LRC military actions regarding the video showing the extrajudicial killings of two women and an infant by the rogue elements of Cameroun army as well as the grave lack of due process by the so-called professional Cameroun armed service personnel. This is coming at a time the US ambassador to Cameroun had accused the Cameroun government for carrying out targeted killings, gross human rights violations in Southern Cameroons as the army is currently engaging with civilian fighters in what Southern Cameroonians preferred to call as Restoration Forces.

In the press release published on July 16, 2018 by the spokesperson of U.S. State Department, Heather Nauert stated that the United States government is ”gravely concerned” by the content of that recent video with men donning military-style uniforms boldly aiming their guns at two women and a child while firing live rounds at them.

The video drew the ire and attention of the international community as well as the media, Amnesty International, human rights organizations who’ve collectively attributed the actions to the military of LRC. La Republique’s Communications Minister, Issa Tchiroma had earlier dismissed all claims in the video as ”fake news” and tried linking the soldiers shown in the video to belong to a corps within the Malian army. Worthy to note is that the Malian government recently rebuked such claims insisting that such a barbaric act was never done in their country(https://www.bareta.news/malian-government-amnesty-intl-isolate-lrc-over-military-extrajudicial-killings/)

The colonial president Paul Biya, whose efforts  and misguided aim to gain favours from Western capitals as he mulls his run for a seventh term in office, has ordered an investigation to be launched but like many other probes in the past, their findings will never be made public and that will be the end of it.

The US State Department went on to urged the government of La Republique Du Cameroun to ”thoroughly and transparently” investigate events depicted in that video, make its findings known to the public and dish out punitive measures to the soldiers involved in the extrajudical killings without any due process. It also requested Yaounde to uphold its international obligations, commitments to protect human rights and promote accountability.

    So called Africans leaders are a bunch of asshole.

    Crazy mentally sick, wicked, cursed satanic sub animals. Demonic people who only purpose is to steal the resources of African and give to non African Nations.

    My God, I have never ever seen people who called themselves leaders, so nasty like this African leaders. Just looking at them is disgusting.

    I am still asking my self how the leaders of western nation manages to present themselves on the world stage with this animals, I still can not understand it. Retarded, brain damage monkey in suits running all over this world calling themselves African leaders. This are the people that the western world want us to follow, respect, look up to, …

    HELL NO.

    “Gravely concerned”, to hell with that.

    Mighty God, this planet is full of psychopaths, sick people, animals in human bodies.
    If this satanic, barbaric act was done to a white women and white babies, the whole world, everything will be put on pause. The African race is crazy, we have no humanity inside of us anymore. Such a demonic, unspeakable act and no single consequence. Yes, and people say humanity, we are one, …

    I swear in the name and blood of our African mothers who birth us and innocent African children, we shall fight until the day we create our own reality where those of us that are truly Africans can finally live in peace away for these savages animal on this planet.

    To our African mothers and and African children, and only to them, nothing else, are we unconditionally loyal to.

    To hell with all the rest.

    In the name of the almighty Creator, I pray that all those satanic people, those in politics, in the military in that demonic nation called LRC be cursed forever, may they burn in everlasting hell. As this innocent women and children who were executed, may their children and mother also suffer the same faith, from the hands of the devil they worship.

      African are too docile and kind, you are angry and dismayed, I understand you and all Africans. Stop anger and sorrow use everything to get rid of these dictators and murderous cowardly, raping, inhumane, jealous bustards called the army. Poison them, kill their families, use explosives and guns to defend our mothers and children. Spend time in small groups studying and applying defence techniques, booby traps, starvation, disruption of wealth of these murderers and see how quickly this changes. I am sorry to say this, but this is the only language that these thugs, murderers understand. Notice that most of these genocidal dictators were carefully picked from the most primitive, poor and barbaric tribes, they can’t compete with the intelligent and hard working tribes.

    How can an African soldier shot and kill unarmed women and children, why not show heroism and kill their commanders and possibility just put a bullet through these dictators skulls. How can this happen in 2018, after shithole comments, Rwanda, WWII, Rohingyas, wake Africans and kill these murderers, family and friends. African Intifada.

    Yes indeed, if this was done to Caucasian women and and children, I bet you that all hell would have broken loose. So what do you expect that zombies met recently in Mauritania and spent their time answering present to this french leech while Africans were being killed like animals that are being led to the slaughter house.
    This just explain why many outside of Africa do not take Africans serious. Seeing how shallow the leadership in Africa are, those from Africa outside of the continent are judge by their shortcomings.
    We must unshackle ourselves from these misconceptions. The time is not next year, it is not even tomorrow. The time is now.
