African ping pong: US plays both sides in Uganda

Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA)

This is the New Scramble for Africa.

After Libya, horror stories are again the order of the day.

The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rampaging around Uganda is nothing more than a US and Mossad-backed guerilla force.

Its task is to destabilize wide areas of Africa rich in minerals like Uganda, ex-French and Belgian Congo, and Sudan.

Joseph Kony, the self-appointed leader of the LRA, ex-choir boy, brilliantly flexible break dancer, the new US terrorist poster boy, has been on the CIA’s books for years.

The LRA’s mass abductions, industrial scale rape and pillage, and kidnapping of children who are turned into monster killers, bear every sign of a CIA MK-Ultra derived programmer to create robotic “no questions asked” terrorists.

Hundreds if not thousands of these ghastly indoctrinated children, trained to kill and maim without pity, have been sent north to stiffen anti-government guerilla forces in Sudan and Somalia.

Kony’s crazy claims that he wants Uganda ruled according to the Ten Commandments is simply pure theater.

He provides the perfect excuse to invade Uganda on the pretext of inciting another humanitarian mission.

Yoweri Museveni, the de facto dictator of Uganda, knows every move in the game. After all, he has been supping at the CIA trough for years.

What is going on in Central Africa is a fine old game of ping pong, the new scramble for Africa, in which western intelligence (American CIA, British MI6, Belgian intelligence, Israeli Mossad) are playing both sides of the table.

The aim is to destabilize the entire region so effectively that most of it can be effectively controlled under the disguise of the usual humanitarian mission. The vast mineral reserves (copper, diamonds, gold, uranium, and oil, for starters) can then he handed on a plate to western exploiters.

This is a direct continuation of the CIA/MI6/Belgian/Mossad promotion of the Katanga breakaway state back in the 1960’s. The western powers encouraged their local stooge Moise Tschombe to pull out of the freshly independent ex-Belgian Congo.

The prime minister of the Congolese Republic, Patrice Lumumba, was murdered in 1961 with the complicity of US and Belgian Special Forces.

Dag Hammarskjöld, iconic second secretary of the UN, died when his plane came down in the Rhodesian veldt on the 18th of September 1961, a couple of days after Lumumba was assassinated. He was on his way to negotiate a truce with the Katangese rebels.

Hammarskjöld was committed to official UN policy (opposed behind the scenes by the US, the UK and Belgium) to re-integrate the Congo.

His UN jet was seen by witnesses to have been shot down by another plane circling close by. British and Rhodesian intelligence made sure the subsequent inquiry scrubbed out any compromising evidence.

The famous Entebbe Raid of 1976, ostensibly to rescue passengers on board a hi-jacked Israeli air liner diverted to Uganda, was a cover story for Mossad to punish its former lackey, dictator Idi Amin. Israel had been his main financial backer until he became too greedy.

He turned to Islam and the Entebbe incident followed not long afterwards. Amin fled the country in 1979.

A hundred US trainers heading for Uganda may not sound like much but remember that was how the Vietnam imbroglio kicked off.

The colonial rape of Africa is a version of the Strategy of Tension devised by western intelligence and NATO back in the 1970’s and 80’s, in order to cow western electorates into supporting strong anti-communist right wing governments.

NATO’s Gladio secret armies terrorized innocent civilians with bombs and bullets, synthetic violence attributed to urban Marxist-orientated guerillas like the Red Brigades in Italy and Germany’s legendary Baader-Meinhof gang.

In fact these organizations were largely manipulated from within by western intelligence.

So now you get the Joseph Kony picture.

It’s the same old story.

    It’s all about minerals and resources. Obama and the rest of Washington couldn’t care less about black people killing each other in Africa. This is about MONEY.

    Okay, I see that you are obviously trying to get at some kind of big picture here, but this article is so poorly written that I could not even follow anything that you were saying. You jumped from the 60s to now in like 100 words, and listed events that supposedly every person knows already (or at least that’s the implication I got from how it was written). Do not get me wrong, I want to know the truth about all of this, but this did not help me. At all. It read more like somebody who is completely on the outside of all of this, trying to make sense of it with little bits and pieces of information they came across on Wikipedia. Whereas that StopKony video I just watched, was moving and informational at the same time. If you’re going to write an article like this, it would be appreciated if you took the time to explain every little thing you are writing, rather than jumping from point to point with pretty much no explanation of what you were writing about. This was only after the first read, but still, it should not matter how concise the article is, as long as it is clear. This was not clear and therefore not concise. I understand that people nowadays have short attention spans and cannot read past 10 words, but I am not one of those people. Just somebody looking for more information about this situation.

    After a second read, some of it makes more sense. Still, all of these events you speak of are new to me. If somebody could point me in the direction of somewhere to read more about his history of “ping-pong” by Western intelligence agencies, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the effort to write articles such as this one.

    What is your solution big shot?

    This is not about America vs _____. This is about humans being treated with no rights, and other humans wanting to stop it and see the arrest of Joseph Kony.
    I am so sick of American’s making it about this or that based on American history and American economy and American government.
    This is bigger than America. I’m glad there are 100 American advisors working with the Ugandan army to teach them how to use technology to locate Kony in the thick jungles of Central Africa, don’t get me wrong. But this is not what you’re saying it is.

    Please do more research.

      NO, the problem is America’s influence over other countries and its ability to control our citizens through the use of media and now viral media as well. By making a sappy video, they have drilled the idea that it is our DUTY to help those in Uganda. Kony is not new and his actions, as mentioned by the author, has been going on for some time now. I would love to trust the government and run to the aid of any individual, but only if I believed that I am truly helping those people and not a corrupt and selfish nation that would kill thousands fueled by corporate interests. Uganda is ripe with natural resources and oil production will start this year. The timing seems all too perfect. Also, do research on Invisible Children and where their charity is actually going. Again, not saying its wrong to help out, but just remember who you are there to help.

      Your ignorance is deafening. Do a search of the words Uganda and oil reserves.

      Oh and now the Kony 2012 movement is on!! Get the OIL!! Tug on heartstrings to do it!! So tell me Victoria, why have we ignored Kony’s terror all these years…and it’s suddenly important now? Even more oil reserves were discovered in July of last year. THAT is why.

    wow, this article sounds good. the problem is, it’s literally a bunch of conjecture. I believe kony to have been a cia shill, sure, the motive, method and resources are all there, but the article holds no real proof that it’s the case. Only points out that Kony’s methods meet the general critera of industrial intelligence destabilization. That might be, but , unless you’ve got..oh, what do those journalists call it… a source, your just blowing smoke. Again, let me say, I believe the article is telling the truth, because, it is par for the course. but how can we take this article and show others who think the idea is ludicrous and expect to be taken seriously? it’s written with the bibliography of a 4th grade history report, except instead of reading, “encyclopedia brittanica” it reads “wiki—–something”… It lacks that other journalist word….. credibility. I’m supposed to believe that, because some guy who wrote a book about ‘NATO’ wrote the article, it’s for real. It’s clear he is the author of books, and not news. I’m with maulder, I want to believe.
