God's Own Army


It was just this morning, that I was thinking about how Machiavelli was a twat and just how far Empire over-reach can really get to, when I read that the Pentagram is gearing up to establish it's own Afrika Korps Africa Command. What did we Africans ever do to deserve such an honour? Again?

Yet another bunch of white men in uniforms. Ho hum. Nothing new there.

I did stop to wonder though, after reading recently about how the Pentagram as an organization is already the world's largest consumer of oil, and what they might possibly be after this time:

Yes, the US military is completely addicted to oil. Unsurprisingly, its oil consumption for aircraft, ships, ground vehicles and facilities makes the Pentagon the single largest oil consumer in the world. By the way, according to the 2006 CIA World Factbook rankings there are only 35 countries (out of 210) in the world that consume more oil per day than the Pentagon.
But wait, that's not all, with 737 known foreign installations around the globe, the Pentagram is also one of the biggest landowners on the planet:

The total of America's military bases in other people's countries in 2005, according to official sources, was 737. Reflecting massive deployments to Iraq and the pursuit of President Bush's strategy of preemptive war, the trend line for numbers of overseas bases continues to go up.

Yes folks, that's "known", officially accounted for bases. Now we are told that there is going to be a land grab in Africa, which I guess means not only buying up hot property, but also making parts of Africa safe for oil prospectors and pipe-line builders; we have to ask ourselves what the fuck is going on here?

This is far bigger than MacDonalds. Or even Unlucky Fried Kittens (KFC) for that matter.

Thank god though that there is nary a peep about bringing democracy, peace and freedom to Africa. After the balls up of the US military invasions in Afghanistan and Iraq, the US Administration and their cohorts of mercenaries would be well advised to just stay the hell out of Africa.

We can do well without the false propaganda shit OK?

Take your play crusader Empire elsewhere please - we already have enough real problems to deal with. NOW!
