Genocide of Christians in Angola, UN and the resistance of UNITA

The civil war in Angola, that started in 1975, continues. Text below based on a May 2000 report by  WorldNetDaily international correspondent Anthony C. LoBaido, on  the struggle of UNITA -- the anti-Communist, Christian rebel movement of Southern Angola, which is fighting for its freedom and independence from the United Nations and its sanctions programs aimed at destroying UNITA.

Two remarks about LoBaido's report, a very good compilation of facts :

One remark about the position of Russia, the backbone the resistance to the NWO, expressed by UN ambassador Lavrov, and why Russia is still supporting the sanctions. Some reasons might be:

The New Paradigm of the Western Governments (New World Order)

The new paradigm of the West towards Africa

At the dawn of the new millennium, the old flawed Christian colonial model for Africa has been replaced. The new paradigm is the corporate, New Age occult model. In this new model, free sex among black Africans equals mass death.

The new paradigm of the West towards UNITA

Under the Reagan administration, UNITA and its leader Jonas Savimbi was held up as a standard bearer for democracy, religious toleration and freedom in Angola. With the Soviet Union and Cuba, fighting in Angola under the banner of Brezhnev's Doctrine -- to control the strategic mineral wealth of Southern Africa and deny it to the West -- the Thatcher/Reagan tandem put the force of their political powers behind UNITA.

But through the 1990's, the allegiance of the Bush-Clinton and Major-Blair leadership of the U.S. and UK has shifted to the Marxist MPLA and the Western oil and diamond corporations that traffic with the Angolan government.

Detailing the shift to the left wing vis-a-vis Angola and the MPLA would take a tome. However, its major elements include the CIA sending UNITA faulty equipment which lacked the spare parts to keep it operational, the rise of Executive Outcomes under former ANC leader Nelson Mandela, the late Princess Diana's "land mine" crusade in Angola and President Clinton's Executive Order in which the U.N. and DeBeers diamond cartel was given free hand to deny UNITA the export of diamonds. UNITA uses diamonds to fund its guerrilla war against the MPLA.

Since 1975, UNITA defeated a mad plethora of invaders of their land

In the past quarter century UNITA, (with some help from the former rugged and elite South African-Afrikaner Defense Force, rogue U.S. Special Forces and the Reagan Administration) have defeated a mad plethora of invaders of their land.

These invaders include the Soviet Union, North Korea, the East Bloc, 50,000 Cuba mercenaries, the U.N. Army, Executive Outcomes (called Apartheid attack dogs by dissidents in Sierra Leone, a former EO stomping ground), the betrayal of the Afrikaner government as well as attacks by  neighbors Namibia and Zimbabwe. The forces of the latter were trained by North Korean Special Forces, who are today digging in Congo for the uranium they'll need to build an atomic bomb.

United Nations, a Western tool, trying to destroy the UNITA

Sanctions in the past (1993-1998)

Sanctions are nothing new for UNITA. Consider the following. Further sanctions were imposed by the U.N. in July 1998 aimed at controlling UNITA's diamond trade and mining industry. President Clinton's anti-UNITA Executive Order and the wishes of the DeBeer's Diamond Cartel (who funded Executive Outcomes and covet UNITA's diamond mines) were the real powers behind this particular U.N. sanctions resolution.

UN Resolution 1295 - A new kind of anti-UNITA sanctions

The U.N. is working overtime to destroy Africa's top Christian, anti-NWO rebel group -- UNITA. Recently, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to push for additional sanctions on UNITA.The reason for the latest sanctions against UNITA -- known as Security Council resolution 1295-- is obvious. The U.N. is frustrated that the Christian patriots in Southern Angola have been fighting for their freedom  since 1975.
The recent anti-UNITA sanctions were drawn up by a so-called "Panel of Experts" anointed by the U.N. Security Council. The nine researchers on the panel launched a painstaking six-month investigation into UNITA's banking, petroleum, diamonds, and arms activities in funding and conducting their war for freedom against the Cuban-Russian installed Marxist MPLA regime of Angola.

The Security Council had requested the Secretary-General to establish a monitoring mechanism composed of up to five experts to collect relevant information and investigate relevant leads relating to any allegations of violations of measures in Council resolutions in regard to UNITA.

These include any relevant leads initiated by the panel of experts. The Secretary-General reported that the requirements of the monitoring mechanism for UNITA's activities comprising five experts for six months was estimated at $710,600. It was recommended that the General Assembly approve that charge against the provision of $90.39 million for special political missions in the 2000-2001 programmed budget.

Recently, Britain's Foreign Office Minister, Peter Hain said, "The time has come for the international community to face up to its obligations. It is no good putting our hands up in the UN for sanctions against UNITA and then taking no action while citizens in our countries make money out of misery. That is simply hypocrisy. We must all rigorously implement and enforce sanctions. The time has come to stamp on the sanctions busters. That is why the report of the Expert Panel is so vital. The full force of law must be brought to bear on those responsible ... we have to cut off Savimbi's means to wage war."

Of course Mr. Hain did not quote from the April 29, 1998 Amnesty International report on the MPLA which stated, "Government [MPLA] soldiers have beaten, tortured and killed unarmed civilians suspected of supporting armed separatists in the Angolan enclave of Cabinda while the government looks the other way."

The latest U.N. sanctions against UNITA are, according to a U.N. spokesman interviewed by WorldNetDaily, "A new kind of sanctions. You've heard of 'Smart Bombs'? These Smart sanctions are not like the blanket sanctions on Iraq and Libya. They are precise and strategic. They are aimed at stopping UNITA's ability to make war, and to punish countries that arm and or trade with UNITA."

The nations accused of helping UNITA in her war with the Marxist MPLA government of Angola -- namely Bulgaria, Ukraine, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Gabon, Burkina Faso, Uganda and Rwanda -- have openly questioned if Robert Folwer, the point man on the U.N.'s anti-UNITA diamond sanctions committee is compromised by his close ties to Canadian diamond mining interests.

Before delving into the specifics of the sanctions, it would be wise to look over the scorecard of the nations fighting out the Cold War in Africa to a bloody finish.

The anti-Communist countries and elements include

UN Resolution 1295 - summary

After analyzing the 18 page U.N. brief on the anti-UNITA sanctions, this writer had learned that the sanctions themselves would basically do the following: As for those nations who traffic in UNITA-mined diamonds, the report states:

Russia and the UN Resolution 1295

Summing up the sheer gall articulated by the words of recent and present Communist states like Russia and China vis-a-vis U.N. Resolution 1295 is no easy task. However, Russian Federation ambassador Sergey Lavrov has said, "The protracted armed conflict in Angola was of most serious concern. As a member of the three observer States for implementation of the peace process, Russia has confirmed its position that the entire responsibility of the continued conflict lay with UNITA, headed by Jonas Savimbi."
"It is Savimbi who is refusing to comply with the terms of the Lusaka Agreement and the demands of Security Council resolutions. Thus, there is a need to further strengthen the pressure on UNITA's political leadership, primarily to halt the fighting and get back on track towards a political settlement."

Lavrov sympathized with the position of the Angolan leadership, and today welcomed that country's Foreign Minister to the Council Chamber. He said that given Mr. Savimbi's record of broken promises, he could have no political future. Mr. Savimbi and his entourage had shown their indifference to the fate of their people in their drive to satisfy their uncontrollable thirst for power. The victims of that quest had often been helping the country under the United Nations flag. Citizens had been held prisoner, including a citizen of the Russian Federation who had died. The UNITA had shown outright contempt for the will of the international community, through its carefully premeditated policy of evading the Council's sanctions, designed to deprive UNITA's military machinery. It was therefore of paramount importance to strengthen effective control over the current sanctions regime.

How UNITA got its groove back

In the wake of the entire world ganging up on UNITA, one may wonder just how the movement survives and even advances against the aforementioned plethora of foes.

First, UNITA buys arms and pays for them in rough diamonds. Brokers of the diamond deals arrange for arms transfers, training, maintenance and spare parts.

Anti-communist DeBeers moles like sight holder Joe De Decker have also assisted UNITA in its diamond deals. Between 1994 and October of 1999, Zairean arms dealer Imad Kabir was another top diamonds-for-weapons dealer. A man named Jacques "Kiki" Lemaire, working together with Manuel Roque, flew arms and diamonds in and out of UNITA held territory during this time period.

The anti-communists in Rwanda and Zambia have also played a role is arming UNITA and providing a conduit for Savimbi to smuggle diamonds out of Angola. South Africa, Johannes Parfirio Parreira's air cargo company Northern Namibian Distributors and his air charter group Interstate airways supplied military and mining equipment.

Then there are air freight companies like Air Cess and Air Pass, operating under the watchful eye of the courageous Victor Bout, based in the United Arab Emirates.

East-West Metals Ltd, a Ukrainian company has sold IGLA (SA-16) surface-to- air missiles to help UNITA shoot down U.N. aircraft.

An American company called Milteks also sent UNITA ammunition via Bulgaria.

Training on the SA-6 anti-aircraft battery was provided for UNITA soldiers in Bulgaria.

Artillery, mines, APC's, AK-47's, M-16's, anit-tank weapons, stinger missiles and other weapons of war were also procured by UNITA. These and other weapons have also been shared by UNITA with freedom fighters in Burma, (the Karen) and in Laos, (the Hmong) as well as with Kurds in Turkey and Northern Iraq.

Petroleum reserves have been made available to UNITA from and inside of nations like Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Togo, Burkina Faso and Gabon.

UNITA gains diamonds through the taxing of diamond diggers, mining its own diamonds and through granting licenses to diamond buyers to operate within its areas of control. South African Piet Hand has helped, according to the U.N, UNITA to move its diamonds out of Africa and into Belgium, which is a transit point for some 80 percent of the world's rough diamonds. Other facilitators of the UNITA diamond trade are "Johnny" Seber, David Zollman, Imad Kabir (Emad Bakir) and Jacobus Witteveen -- the owner of the Antwerp, Belgium diamond company "Afridiam."

UNITA avoids commercial banking channels like the plague. Savimbi recently gave US$ 5 million in cash to President Eyadema of Togo to look after. The President of Cote d'lvoire, Henry Konan Bedié also received a bundle of cash from UNITA.

This is what the U.S. taxpayer is funding: the U.N., DeBeers and Clinton-sponsored destruction of UNITA, a long-time U.S. ally, Christian and pro-West rebel group and the last anti-Communist movement in the Southern Hemisphere. UNITA of course is resisting surrendering its diamond and gold mines to U.S. and UK transnational corporations.

What can freedom-loving Americans do to help American allies like UNITA, the South Sudanese, Karen, Hmong, Zulus and Afrikaners to survive the ongoing genocide being waged against them in their respective countries?
