Hidden globalist agenda behind Mandela’s ANC rise to power in South Africa
Hidden globalist agenda behind Mandela’s ANC rise to power in South Africa
1.Poverty, unemployment, crime and disease in South Africa
While South Africa celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release from prison of ex-president and ex-terrorist Nelson Mandela, international news media are admitting that the conditions of most black South Africans are now worse than they were during the Apartheid era. An estimated 300 000 people were killed and far more maimed or emotionally damaged in the civil war leading to the hand over of government to the ANC [African National Congress] but the result has been a bitter disappointment for most South Africans. Since the ANC assumed power, a quarter of a million people in South Africa have been murdered, a million have been raped, half a million have died from AIDS, there have been two million high-jackings and armed robberies, three million fatherless children and four million unemployed. THESE ARE FACTS! Every year the nation celebrates it’s freedom from white rule, but for most, freedom means only the fact that their rich rulers are black rather than white and there’s more poverty, disease, unemployment, violence and crime than ever before. (1) The ANC government basks in the glories of political victory with monuments for the war heroes, mansions with servants for their top brass and a Nobel peace prize for their leader, while in the streets their people rise in violent anger at the ANC’s broken promises and millions wander and languish in poverty, disease and hopelessness. Yes, the black people are free – free to be poor, free to be unemployed, free to be mugged, robbed, raped or murdered, free to die of AIDS.
It’s time to reveal the inside story of what was really behind the civil war, the story of how the ANC were used by foreign interests to set the stage for globalist world domination. Globalist controlled international news media continue to propagate the myth that the ANC rise to power was a victory of oppressed people over their oppressors. The reality is that it was a victory for the globalist’s in the first stage of their quest for total world domination.
2. South Africa’s turbulent political history
Ever since the discovery of vast quantities of gold and diamonds in South Africa in the 1860’s, British magnates have had their scheming eyes on the country. From those times, the South African mines were the world’s dominant diamond producers and until 1989 more than 40% of all the gold that had ever been mined came from South Africa. Small wonder that British forces attempted a take-over of the independent South African states in which the gold and diamond reserves were located. They failed in the first war of conquest 1880 to 1881 [so-called “Boer war”]; also failed again in a secretly planned raid by British forces in 1895, but finally succeeded in 1902 after a long and bitter armed struggle by the Afrikaner “Boer” settlers to resist British rule. From 1902 until 1961 the South African states were united as a single protected colony of the British Empire while exploration and mining continued to uncover even greater quantities and types of valuable minerals. British magnates finally controlled one of the greatest treasure houses of the world.
3. Key to world domination
A key to world domination is control over the supply of oil and gas as well as strategic minerals. Strategic minerals are those metal ores that are essential to the manufacture of armaments and weaponry, ships, submarines, aircraft, tanks and missiles. Iron and copper are also needed but these are relatively plentiful and reserves are fairly well distributed in numerous countries around the world. Strategic minerals on the other hand are more rare and unevenly distributed. These essential alloying elements – Manganese, Nickel, Chromium, Vanadium, Cobalt and Molybdenum – when added to iron and copper almost miraculously turn them into strong, ductile and robust alloys. Without these alloying elements iron and copper are either soft or brittle or offer no resistance to the high temperatures of engines, rockets and explosives. What a blessing it was for Britain that nearly three quarters of ALL KNOWN STRATEGIC MINERAL RESERVES were found in South Africa!!!! South Africa has a natural competitive advantage thanks to its immense concentrations of reserves of important minerals. It holds the world’s largest reserves of ores of manganese (possessing 80 percent of the total world reserves), chromium (68 percent), PGMs (56 percent), vanadium (45 percent), gold (39 percent), and alumino-silicates (37 percent). It is also the leading holder of reserves of ores of vermiculite, andalusite, zirconium, titanium, antimony, fluorspar, and phosphate rock. As a result of this large reserve base, South Africa is the world’s leading producer of PGMs, vanadium, and vermiculite, contributing about 50 percent of the world’s total of these commodities. South Africa is also the largest world supplier of alumino-silicates, chrome ore, ferrochromium, and gold, for which its contribution ranges between 20 and 60 percent. (2)
Manganese is one of the most important ferrous metals and one of the few for which the United States is totally reliant upon imports for 100 percent of its manganese needs since 1985. The leading sources of manganese imports in 2000 through 2003 were South Africa. (3) Surging demand for ferrochrome used in making ferroalloy, which in turn is used in making stainless steel, has led to a severe shortage of chromite. South Africa is the leading manufacturer of chromite globally and a major supplier of ferrochrome. The major international producers of chrome ore are: South Africa, producing 45% of world production, Kazakhstan 17%, India 14% and Zimbabwe 6%. (4) (5)
Whoever controls these reserves controls the world. After gaining independence from Britain by popular vote in 1961, South Africa was fast becoming an independent African superstate, under the white Afrikaner government, [descendents of the “Boer” settlers] with control of almost all of the world’s STRATEGIC MINERALS. No wonder the USSR supported the South African Communist Party’s [SACP] plans to topple the independent white capitalist government in South Africa.
As pointed out by many political analysts, revolutionary movements do not have the capability to over-throw or destabilize capitalist goverments without funding and intelligence support either from inside or outside the country. How did the ANC and South African Communist party finance their operations? Both organizations received funding from European patrons. It is now well known that in the 1970’s, Cuban, East German and Russian millitia men provided black South Africans with armaments and training in guerilla warfare. The training camps were set up in Mozambique, Angola. Uganda and Zambia. It would have been impossible for the ANC and SACP to fund these operations themselves because most of the trainees were by no mean wealthy, but inexperienced, relatively unskilled or poorly qualified sons and daughters of the South African populace. In his book “Long road to freedom” Nelson Mandela admits that the Russians used the ANC for their own ends. South African intelligence revealed that from the early 1960’s the USSR was funding the SACP in the hope of eventually gaining control over South Africa’s strategic minerals.
That situation could not be tolerated by the British and American owners of the mining corporations in South Africa. They resorted to whatever sinister and secret means they could to ensure that any government in South Africa would continue to support their control of the mines and the mineral wealth. But the white Afrikaner government had no intention of remaining under British and American control. South Africa’s quest for new alliances and trade partners during the 60’s and 70’s as well as Soviet covert support for the ANC had the international community all in a flurry. The Anglo-American alliance was determined to prevent the the independent South African political situation from threatening their position of world domination through control over South Africa’s mineral wealth. Far worse, they could never allow the Soviets to usurp their prime position.
Already in 1984 while South African police were trying to track down Soviet sponsored ANC terrorists who were killing farmers and other innocent civilians, a team led by Gavin Reddy, chairman of the Anglo-American Mining Corporation, was negotiating behind the scenes with exiled ANC leaders in Lusaka, Zambia.(6) It wasn’t long before Western governments, corporations and institutions were being lobbied and organized to take over the sponsorship of the ANC terrorists.
4. ANC victory and political about-face
As soon as the ANC revolutionaries were set up in government, their obligations to their patrons and sponsors were called. Most telling of all was the complete turn-around that occurred in the policies of the ANC upon being sworn into government. While they were being supported by the Soviets their policies and slogans were closer to communism than to any other political ideology. But the policies they practice today are almost the exact same blend of capitalism and socialism that the British and Afrikaner governments practised. As soon as the new ANC cabinet was formed, all the foreign companies that had lost out on business deals and investment opprtunities during the Afrikaner era came running with treade offers and plans. Not only that but foreign aid came flooding in – Britain and the USA especially eager to sell themselves and become involved in the country’s affairs again. The problem for the Anglo-American alliance during the sanction years was not that they were starved of essential strategic minerals. They had stock-piled in advance. The problem was that as stock-piles dimished they were being forced to buy these key metals from third parties and intermediaries at up to twice or treble the price that they ought to have been paying under normal circumstances and secondly, their enemies in Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe were finding easy access to these precious commodities as well. Strategic minerals are the key to world domination and the key was once again in their hands. In fact they had almost always been in their hands because they owned most of the mines and factories in South Africa and payed high taxes to operate them. The problem was that they could not use the keys to their strategic advantage the way they did before 1961.
5. International Trade: South Africa and the USA/Britain
After Afrikaner independence in 1961 trade between South Afrcia and the USA/ Britain began to decline at a rate of about 10% per decade. (7) At that rate, there would have been virtually no trade with the USA and Britain by today. But with the ANC now in government everything has been reversed again. The UK is now South Africa’s largest trade and investment partner with over £7 billion in two-way trade in goods and services and £24 billion of UK investment in South Africa. Metals and minerals comprise 31% of British imports from South Africa. (8) The United States is the second largest investor in South Africa after the United Kingdom. Since the ANC assumed power, the United States has become the second largest source of foreign direct investment in South Africa. Many U.S. companies in South Africa are now members of the American Chamber of Commerce. The United States is the largest bilateral donor to South Africa in terms of Development Assistance donating $98 million in 2003-03, $160 million in 2004 and $185 million in 2005. No surprise – approximately 28 U.S. agencies manage cooperative programs in South Africa including the Department of Defence and PRECIOUS METALS and stones account for over 30% of total imports to the U.S. from South Africa. (9) Hillary Clinton described as “extremely helpful” a recent meeting in Durban with South African president Jacob Zuma. The president said: “The two countries have always had good relations and we are taking that relationship higher.” (10)
The ANC government has been in power in South Africe for seventeen years, international sanctions against the country were lifted twenty years ago and since then literally billions of dollars worth of foreign aid has been pouring into the country. No surprise that business with the USA and Britain is booming as never before, but the lives of the common people remain much the same if not worse than during the so-called years of oppression under white rule. Why doesn’t the international community do or say anything about this? Because no one with big business interests in Sout Africa is listening anymore. The globalists have regained control of South Africa’s STRATEGIC MINERALS so they have no need to intervene in the affairs of South Africa anymore.
