“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players;…”
I really like these lines of Shakespeare. It is an universal general assessment for all humanity, that exactly coincides with human behavior in every age from a time period which seems to be before time. Be sure, even if the calendar shows the year of 2500, these words will be compatible with humanity.
Let’s frame this on the latest situation in Afghanistan today and which country is showing what kind of policy inside and out; and finally, let’s rate them in a political context which a form of activity produced by humans currently works/operates, and how much good their performance acting on the stage by filming.
First, United States of America, movie name “We’re Heroes”
“WASHINGTON, Aug 17 (Reuters) – The United States will seek to evacuate as many U.S. citizens and Afghan interpreters as possible in coming weeks, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday, saying Americans could again make their way to the Kabul airport. We’re going to work really hard in the coming weeks to get as many of them out of the country as we can…Three U.S. military bases were prepared to accept up to 22,000 Afghan allies in the coming weeks… More than 700 people, including more than 150 U.S. citizens, were evacuated in the past 24 hours, Kirby said separately on ABC News’ “Good Morning America.”
“Afghans, who were put on a cargo plane with the dream of being taken to America, were left in Uganda. According to news, in the statement, it was claimed that the Afghans, who were loaded on the cargo plane from Kabul Airport, took them to Uganda. The statement said: “The first group of Afghan refugees (over 400) who came to Uganda started to settle in the country. Uganda has agreed to accept 2,000 Afghans under a new agreement with the United States. Afghans, who did not know that they were taken to Uganda, were reported to have reacted after they landed.”
Kirby had said 3 of US military bases prepared for Afghans, but according to news at least one of them these bases he mentioned in the Uganda.
Anyway, Over 5 points rating, I give 3 points to US authorities to their film. I take 2 points off US authorities; 1 of 2 points since they did not show much emotional behavior when the statement was made, so acting of one of male leads is not good. 1 of 2 points since they didn’t foresee that the information that Afghans were taken to Uganda instead of going to America would come out in a day, and because their production clumsily.
Secondly, France, movie name “Les Macronuzes”
According to rfi news: “Macron to deploy special forces to Kabul to evacuate French nationals, Afghan allies, French President Emmanuel Macron has said that Afghanistan should not return to becoming a “sanctuary of terrorism” and that Paris will not abandon Afghans who worked for France who find themselves under threat from the Taliban.”
“Adel Abdul Raziq, president of the Association of former auxiliaries of the French army affirms that his”colleagues are abandoned by the French army”.”Since the Taliban returned to Kabul, the auxiliaries of the French army, are worried about this threat. They are all locked in their homes,” he testifies. (About 80 people plus their families) …Last June, the Taliban assured that the interpreters were in no danger and called them “repent” and stay in Afghanistan. What is it?
This is a lie. We lost one of our colleagues, Abdul Basir, after their announcement. He was kidnapped for two weeks and they murdered him. They broke their promise. That is why my friends and colleagues who are in Afghanistan are so worried about their future. Those who remained in Afghanistan regret having worked with the French army.”
Over 5 points rating, I give 3 points to France’s Macron and his team movie. I cut one point Macron’s lack directorship ability, and cut one another point, since the promotion of the film resulted in a fiasco on the same day.
Third, Dutch-Netherlands, movie name “Summer in Afghanistan”
Dutch Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld said on Twitter:
Accoding to Cumhuriyet news: “Dutch newspaper NRC wrote that Afghans working at the Dutch Embassy in Kabul were stunned when they arrived at the office on Sunday, August 15, when all the Dutch staff left the building without saying anything. It was stated that the Dutch staff at the embassy left quietly and that 37 Afghan employees found their places vacant when they came to work.”
I give 2 points to Dutch government. I took off 3 points because they didn’t choose the actors well and the stage planning was very bad. Because seemingly stage was already empty.
Fourth, Sweden, the name of movie, “Greetings to Afghanistan”
“In the press conferance of Swedish Minister of Foreign Affair, Ann Linde “They are currently working to evacuate local employees. These are employees at the embassy and people who worked for the Armed Forces until 2014, as well as their families.”
“According to the news in the Swedish press, 19 people from the Swedish Embassy in Kabul were taken to the US military base in Doha, the capital of Qatar, by helicopter and plane on Sunday evening, August 15. Swedish personnel left Kabul, while local Afghan personnel working with them were left in the country.
It came to the fore that the Swedish staff even blocked the corporate e-mail accounts of Afghans working with them and did not answer their phones.
A group of local Afghan employees e-mailed the Swedish newspaper Expressen yesterday, explaining that they were dumped by former Swedish colleagues who blocked their email addresses and did not answer their calls.
“We don’t know what’s going on and they left us at the office while we were working. We tried to contact them but they didn’t answer our calls and they blocked our email addresses. Please write about us, our lives are in danger. Sweden should abandon its bureaucratic system and “put our lives first before its laws,” statements were included in the email.”
I give 1 points to Swedish government’s movie. I took off 4 points because while artistic concern draws attention in classical Swedish cinema generally, commercial success is in the background, but here on the contrary here, artistic carelessness draws attention, commercial success is in the foreground.
Fifth, Germany, movie name “Dosenbier und Weinflaschen” – “Cans of beer and bottles of wine”
With the headline “Beer and wine removed – local personnel remain”, “There was a carrying capacity for alcohol, but not for local personnel in Afghanistan.” evaluation was made.
In the news, it was reminded that at the beginning of June, when Germany was preparing to leave Afghanistan, it took out 65,000 beer cans and 340 wine bottles belonging to the German army from the country.
Although this is a coincidence in terms of timing, the German government’s priority given to people who worked for Germany for years and risked their lives in Afghanistan, the report said, “For the German government, they are less valuable than beer cans.” expression was used.
I don’t want to impress anyone who reads these lines, but I give this movie of the German government 5 full points! It was built on the love of beer, which is mostly identified with the German people in the world, and processed the brain work of the Germans, who are mechanical geniuses. Especially if we had been able to watch those drinks being loaded onto the planes in a systematic and disciplined Germans way, it would have been a visual feast! Congratulations to Merkel and her team, bravo!
If you want to give a rating or comment about these movies, you’re always welcome my earthling friends!
There is another protest group in France, as well as the Yellow Vests. They are high school and college students. They are against the government’s reform plans on new exam system, and they want Macron administration to listen them. In short, it is in this way, but the content is very wide.
To see the existence of freedom of expression is a lower probability than to see a dinosaur on the planet.
On December 6th, during French high school students’ protests, the images of the French police who humiliated the high school students tyrannically, were imprinted on everyone’s memory. Even in the most fascist administrations in history, it has been seen rare that young people were treated in this way. It is said that France is now governed with democracy. The guns with plactic bullets and tear gas that are bought by the public’s paid taxes, are also part of this democracy. This is actually present in almost all democracies around the world. In the definitions of democracy, it is defended that people should have freedom of expression. But somehow to see this kind of freedom which cannot find an existence, is even less than the possibility of seeing dinosaurs on the planet. Of course, the group that wants to express themselves most often is young people inside the human kind. This is a situation that arises from the need more communication rather than because of the difficulty of expression of themselves. The youth in France abided by this rule. Even, at a point where the adults had to stand out in the name of them, they entered a big job such as to get the ropes into their hands.
History of French students protests is older than Marvel cosmic universe
Student movements in the history of the world, far back to the very old dates. In the revolution of 1848, as in many European countries, students in France took part in the revolution movement. And of course 1968.
The “Red May” of 1968 made forever Paris a symbol of youth unrest. Thousands of students from the best universities in France announced an indefinite strike under the slogans “It is forbidden to forbid!”-“Il est interdit d’interdire!” and “Be realistic, demand the impossible.”-“Soyez réalistes, demandezl’impossible”…Their protest inspired millions of people and became the subject of many books, films and songs. Many teachers sympathized with the students, including the famous contemporary philosophers Michel Foucault and Jean-Paul Sartre. Student revolt against bourgeois society and bourgeois morality spread to the neighboring European countries.
As it turns out, these protests of French students are not the first and have a very old history. It can even be said that these protests are much older than the beginning of Marvel Cosmic Universe (1939). Well, are there any a hero or “villain” and “supervillain” in these youth movements? What do they oppose and what do they want?
I’ve learned after reading dozens of articles, hundreds of documents, and watching thousands of videos for this… (I am kidding.:)) It’s enough to watch one or two videos made with them to understand what they want. In other words, everyone who is not retarded can understand that they want to achieve quality education with the lowest possible price on the equal basis; and of course the subject of the university which will effect their future. Macron government has brought a system that badly affect the majority of young people in the transition to university. France’s new Parcoursup system for university entry is the first thing they don’t want.(*)
“Critics suspect the system increases inequality by introducing greater selectivity and competition. Students not offered a university spot can enter into government training programs for various careers…
“There are a lot of students who are quite anxious and upset,” said Muriel Paletou, president of the Toulouse region’s parents association. “This violence is an expression of that fear, but this reform is also being imposed in a way that’s also violent and very fast.”
Even before the new bac is rolled out, many high school students are upset by the introduction last year of a new college application platform called “Parcoursup,” short for “parcour superieur” or “path to higher education.” The lack of transparency around how Parcoursup works led many to suspect it was introducing even greater selectivity and competition among students who were once guaranteed admission to university if they passed the bac.”
They don’t want Jedi education; but of course, if they had it would have been cool
I’ve read an article about the French education minister’s concern in the education system. Quoted from the article dated December 2017 as follows.
“It follows an announcement by Jean-Michel Blanquer, the French education minister, that mobile phones will be banned from next year in primary, junior and middle schools, a pledge that formed part of Emmanuel Macron’s presidential campaign.
Mr Blanque believes that the time children spend staring at screens is a matter of “public health”. “These days, the children don’t play at break time any more. They are just all in front of their smartphones and, from an educational point of view, that’s a problem,” Mr Blanque said to the Local, an English-language publication, this week.”
As you can see, this concern is about the use smartphone/mobile phone of young people. And he describes it as “an educational point of view, that’s a problem,”. Not only young people, but almost every person has these phones in their hands and they can’t keep their eyes off them. This is already a ridiculous situation for all humans. However, while students obviously have a lot of problems, like not being able to get education at first, Jean-Michel Blanquer, the French education minister’s doing is to play to the audience.
These young people do not want Jedi education, they want only the right, accessible and equal education for all. Of course it would be cool if they had Jedi training. Give these young people what they want; I’m sure when you give, the use of the smartphone which is a big problem, will be reduced at least half!
Also, if Macron government had been sincere that smartphones were the problem for human health, they would not have announced that their goal is rollout of 5G in 2020. 5G brings the smart meters next to itself. Smart meters will not harm children, young people, adults, even the nature, ie the health of the whole society? But it is okay for you. A few billionaires would put more satellites into space, space would return to the more dumpster, government allowance would give to these billionaires, money would allocate from the budget for them, more tax burden will be on the people’s back for the profit of rich people, the phone manufacturer billionaires would sell new 5G compatible phones. It doesn’t matter the people’s health is jeopardized, next to so many rich get more profit. Let’s you admit, you are hypocrite!
Z generation. (Why did we come to the last letter of the alphabet, will there be no other generation after that?)
However, they think that this generation called Z Generation, because of their navel cords were cut through the internet when they were born, they will swallow and digest whatever they are given about internet technology and on internet. “Already these teens share stories in instagram, they tweet and swear, laughs at videos that goats shout at each other, even they watch the game players instead of playing game, shortly waste their time without thinking.” These are not my thoughts. This is how most managements see Z Generation in general. Well, they all are really like that?
In fact, these researches show differences on the country basis according to social media researches. For example, Z Gen of US and Z Gen in France have not the same internet addiction. But generalizations on this planet, sharp-edges are very common. In more detail, while more than 90% of American Z Generation spend time on the internet, in France this figure is in the 63-65% range. The trend in internet sharing is not the same either between them. I didn’t do these researches. The companies that make these researches are the marketing companies that focus on young people. Their aim is, of course, to identify and direct the tendencies of young people, and in this direction, to make profits that they can manage within the capitalist system.
Are these young people, Z generation, really a marketing tool, so are they handy fools? In the meantime, why Z generation, why did we come to the last letter of the alphabet, will there be no other generation after that, why…? Hundreds of questions in my head.
Anyway. These teens show in a way that they’re not handy fools. If they are, some organizations in the world would not do research on the tendencies of socialism for both Millennials and Z Generation. I’ve thought about that too, of course.:) That’s what I realized: Generation Z was born in the period when the environment was polluted the most and this was done by capitalist companies plainly visible. On the other hand, perhaps they are lovers of animals and nature more than any other generation. In the surveys, a business that is intertwined with nature in the field of expertise/work for which they think in the future, is at a high rate with the work of information technologies. This, of course, is not only because of they are bored very quickly and want a job outside. They want to live in a clean environment, want to breathe.
By the way, the condition of your planet is really bad; I should specify that the alarm level is even black. The planet earth with this polluted environment is as important as the Internet for Z Generation. In other words, we can say that, in fact, capitalism could not get the full result as it expected on them.
The continuing process from Homo sapiens to Homo robotus
However, the capitalism tries every way to achieve the goal. Capitalism is a system that makes ordinary people even worse poor, making the rich even richer. Perhaps the protests of these young people and the yellow vests can be compared to the Rebellion of Poor France. However, the definition of poverty is a different color for each country. The price increases especially in 2018 put the laboring French a difficult situation. This difficult situation determines the living conditions of French people. It would not be right to make the same definition in other countries. In other words, the definition of poverty varies according to each country. Capitalism offers you a different type of poverty according to the conditions in each country. It is up to you to choose and like or not.
If you do not accept one of the definitions of poverty, in this time you faced with police forces that the government has grown up with its hand, and their costs paid with your taxes again. These advanced camouflaged and armed police forces seem to have evolved as a new species. This new species, which will be called Homo robotus, has evolved until it reaches this level.
Find 10 differences between two pictures. There is no need 10 differences! At the first a young could talk to the police while laughing and at the second, a teenager is on his knees on the ground with his hands behind his head; in front of him there are 35 police officers I can count. Like a horror empire! In 50 years France has really made a lot of progress on human rights! In the last fifty years, of course, these new police forces, evolving as Homo robotus did not jump over the time by disrupting the rules of evolution. According to wikipedia, in the last 50 years in France 17 riots have been.
The 2006 youth protests in France and 2007–09 university protests in France, signed by the youth. French governments that faced with a revolt about in every 2-3 years in last fifty years developed police forces under their hands. New defense techniques and equipments were prepared for the new century. Their evolution, of course, returned back to protesters as plastic bullets, tear gas, pressure water, and the injuries, even deaths subsequently. Amnesty’s news with the title “Police must end use of excessive force against protesters and high school children in France” dated 14 December 2018 contains the following lines:
“As the clouds of tear gas lift, a clearer picture has emerged which shows police have used excessive force against largely peaceful protesters, journalists and even children,” said Rym Khadhraoui, Amnesty International’s West Europe Researcher.
“Whilst policing demonstrations is a difficult task and some protesters have committed unlawful and violent acts, it is essential that both French law and international human rights law is respected. Police have a duty to maintain public order, and in doing so they may use force only when strictly necessary. If the use of force is unavoidable, it must be done with restraint.”
Official figures show that 1,407 protesters have been injured – 46 of them seriously – since protests began on 17 November. In total, 717 police officers, gendarmes and firefighters also suffered violence. Whilst the authorities, have repeatedly and legitimately condemned acts of violence by protesters, they have failed to express concern over the excessive use of force by the police which must be the subject of an independent, impartial and effective investigation…
Mathieu Barraquier, a teacher in Garges-lès-Gonesse, a Paris suburb, described escalating tensions on 5 December outside the Simone de Beauvoir high school, after a tree was set alight and police started putting on riot gear. Some children started throwing stones and in once instance, a small burning projectile in the direction of the police who were about 30 meters away. “Then, without any reason, I heard a rubber bullet and I saw a student collapse. I ran to him and as he turned his head I saw that his cheek was burst open like a split pomegranate. He had not been throwing stones. He had just been talking with his friends.” The boy was hospitalised for two days.
On 6 December, there were clashes between police and students of Saint-Exupery high school in Mantes-la-Jolie, another suburb of Paris. In all, 163 children, some as young as 13, were arrested, and footage of dozens of high school students forced to kneel with their hands either behind their heads or handcuffed behind their backs went viral.
If you ask whether the police violence still continued or not after this news, yes, of course, is this question a joke? For more details of the violence of the Homo robotus of France government, it is enough to take a look at these two articles.
Would Sartre, Hegel or Khayyam play World of Warcraft?
It is now overwhelmingly on the planet, there are limited, even non-freedoms, the hegemony of capitalism, police violence, wars and interventions, a polluted environment. Under these conditions, young people want to step forward and shape their future. It is already the ideal one. The adults should not make judgments without hesitation, while sitting on the chair. Okay, this generation has a lot of shortcomings, but which generation hadn’t? Wouldn’t every new generation always tagged by the previous one? I think the most important problem of this generation is their importance to the visual perceptions. Communication is usually provided on social networks on the internet through photographs or similar visuals between them. So time is short for them; they spend this time for watching, not to read. Visual perception is open to manipulation. Without knowing what is really in the background, a watched video can cause war cries against a person or group who does not deserve at all in the room.
Of course, these young people will look for answers of the same questions over time as same as the adults did before. “Why am I here?” is the first one. Who didn’t ask this question? Many philosophers have tried to find the causes of human and all existences on this planet. But if they had lived today, or if they themselves were Z generation, for example, Hegel, Khayyam or Sartre, would they give the answer to this question via twitter? Or maybe they would become youtubers. Or maybe they would play World of Warcraft. I don’t think Sartre or Khayyam would play WoW, but I think Hegel would have played. He had got that light.;) Even when playing, Hegel could have raised a new idea and said “Virtual reality is rational, and rational is virtual reality,” haha!
As a result, present youth in France will also criticize the next generation. Due to we came to the last letter in the alphabet, probably the next generation will be called something like Version Z2. Of course, nowadays they have a stance against the system and they will have the right to criticize the next generation. While they are taking part in all these struggles, adults have to give up on promises to them with empty words and feel the same fear for the future of human and the planet. Both are already connected with each other. For now, there is no other planet where the human species can live. For that reason, if there is a will in a anywhere, they may be in young people even children, adults need to take their side. In the end, it should be remembered that the future of humans is belong to the youth with free mind and free conscience.
(*)I’ve tried to get in touch with their union to learn exactly what their demands are about 2 months ago. I had thought to make an article about them. Because in the English-speaking world, it is very difficult to find articles about the struggle of French high school students. But, I had to postpone a lot of things, including this article, because of ear infection I had last month. Also yes, the high school students in France have got the union, UNL-SD (Union Nationale Lycéenne – Syndicale et Démocratique), you did not hear wrong, my earthling friends. (By the way, we don’t even have an union, I envy you!) However I do not know French. When I tried to contact with them(union members), probably they didn’t understand what I asked. I only know three of the world’s languages, and all three are half-way I guess; but I can handle in a way as you knew my earthling friends.;) I think they were naturally suspicious of “why an extraterrestrial ask these questions to us” in justified. On this planet I’m an observer for the Galactic Council that these young people have no idea. I hope that after this article, they will realize that I am not here to invade the planet earth and my goal is peaceful. Of course, they can always comment on this blog, they’d like to add something if they want to add or connect with me. Of course not only members of the union, it’s open to everyone who participates in the protests and says “there’s something I want to say.” You all welcome.
There are skeletons in the closets of almost every country on this planet. Historically, there are very few nations that have not been at daggers drawn with the others. Killing, slaughtering is actually the ancestor’s sport of all mankind. In fact, if we take all kinds of sports together on the other side, the effort and works to shed blood will ensure that almost every country in the multiple Olympics organized annually, receives a lot of medals. This olympic game name might be: “Traditional massacre olympics of humans.” Everybody will return home with happiness, due to the winnings of these Olympics will be determined according to the answers given to the questions such as the number of attacks on which country on an annual basis, how many were killed or slaughtered. The faces would be happy. Also, with these Olympics, every country will leave the mask of hypocrisy on the one side and throw over the whiter than white position which it is hidden behind it. Believe in that, there is nothing that the people can not do to get a reward. In such a case, especially which country could be always in the first three medal surprisingly in all dates of these Olympics? Attention to the definition of “Surprisingly,” .
Because of I already gave spoilers in the title of the article, France will be that country because that will be a world where France is not be able to have the historical hypocrisy of until this day.
“Ongoing bromance: ‘Special relationship’ between Trump and Macron”
While the words were said to each other is pushing the upper limit of the flattery, it’s funny to seem these were done like in courtesy. As if the scenes of Trump and Macron looks at each have caught everyone’s attention, if we look at the sub-comments of this video and similar videos. Does this point to the birth of a new love story, haha! I do not think so; already France had a deep romance since America was founded?
Are the skeletons of France’s closet only limited with support for almost every assault action of American governments? Or…
Let’s make a trip to the past. Let’s look at what France made before and after the US was founded. After that, you decide whether France would have had one of the first three medals every year, if “the traditional massacre Olympics of humans” had done?
2011-2018 Syrian Civil war
Since August 2011, France has been involved the Syrian civil war. Between 2011-2018, the French government, including in August 2014 as confirming of French President François Hollande that France had delivered arms to Syrian dissidents against Assad, has joined to the air operations of the UK-led UK in 2015, as last in 2018, by hiding the lie of “We are attacking the chemical weapons store of Assad’s hand,” also supported the American operations.
Most of the individual Syrian dissidents in 2014 are radical Islamist gangs, as defined by the Syrian government. In other words, France, which said to support Kurds on one hand, provided guns to dozens of Islamist opposition group against the Kurds on the other hand. Hollande had said, as the reason for doing this:” We can not leave the only Syrians who are preparing a democracy … without weapons.”
That’s he says briefly: “Democracy can not be unarmed, I give these weapons to the Islamic oppositions if it is necessary, or I give Kurds like YPG if I want. For France, “side” is not a problem. When appropriate, if they did not kill each other enough with the weapons that I have supplied to both, then I would bomb them with the lie of chemical weapons. Because I do all of these things in the name of democracy!”
Above, I mentioned that while France was sending weapons to Islamic dissidents in Syria in August 2014, in the same month of the same year, France announced that they had sent weapons to Kurds in the Iraq. Now can someone give me a reply? If we taking account of the transition between the two countries is weak, can you prove that these weapons, the weapons that France sent to both sides, were not used against each other? Especially if there are Kurds who read this article, please try to respond.
The hypocrisy is innumerable for the French governments. Instead of democracy tale, if they would have said “my pockets will be empty while everyone gets a share from the cake?”, this would be honest. But this is not expected from the French governments. For the French governments, which did the French revolution and seem to have made progress, to have done the French revolution is a great camouflage actually. Behind this colorful and captivating camouflage, out of France there is a very big and stupid human community that is confident of France’s “democracy” calls and tales, who are decieved with this make-up, and French governments which have been self-reliant, selfish, hypocritical, arrogant, pretentious in all history.
It’s important for France to get a share of the cake. Because it is one of the five great colonial states known already in the world history. What France has done in recent years in the Middle East is not limited with Syria.
Already when we pay attention to the 1916 Skyes-Picot treaty, France gets Syria, England gets Iraq. The north of Iraq in todays was included Syria at that time. Here is, a sort of all of under the border southeast Turkey has been promised to France, but it lost this region after a while. Nowadays the whole field of Kurdish autonomous regions in Iraq and Syria is the place that pumps blood into the France’s colonial vein which came from the past. Because France could not come and settle to this area, the Arabs and Turkmens in this region were forced out of their place by large population games and conflicts, and plans to increase the Kurds’ presence were put into place. The large areas under Turkey’s southeastern border have been advertised as part of the Kurdish homeland for years. For this, France gave a lot of support including the PKK terrorist organization, sometimes under the name of “the opposition”. If France was not a country, it would be a good puppeteer.
We will return to the Middle East again, let’s go back to 2011 again.
Is there anyone who wonders what happened this little Libyan boy during last years after the NATO bombs at Libya?
The air strike began to Libya in March 2011 by France, Belgium, England, Canada, France, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Qatar and the United States with the decision was taken by Sarkozy’s invitation and hosted in Paris. The numbers of war casualty between 2013 and 2011 of Libya are on this link.
France, which collected the other countries to Paris with the call of crisis, did not say that the French made the first attacks on Libya with 20 warplanes in the morning hours at 19 march 2011 with the announce of French Defense Ministry with hypocritical “pride”?
Libya’s pathetic situation would never end by writing. However, there are plenty of time zones and countries we need to go backwards in the history, to learn the numbers of skeletons in the closet of France.
Between 2001 and 2012, France also served in Afghanistan under the leadership of NATO. Let’s just say this and let’s move on. Even if I only just say, according to the figures in wikipedia France spent 870 million Euros during it’s period of office in Afghanistan. Hmmm, good figure. I do not know what ordinary French citizens think when hear about where their taxes are spent.
Our passing to Africa which started with Libya, continues.
The Battle of N’Djamena began on February 2, 2008 when Chadian rebel forces opposed to Chadian President Idriss Déby entered N’Djamena, the capital of Chad, after a three-day advance through the country…. Hundreds died in the battle, which displaced at least 30,000. French forces evacuated foreigners, but also provided intelligence and ammunition for the Chadian National Army and sporadically exchanged fire with rebels.
Chad was one of the France colonies in Africa between 1900-1950. But France influence is still going powerly. Chadian President Idriss Déby has been ruling Chad since 1990. And according to last news, he will be president until 2033! If this has been another country, it would have been very different. But this is Chad.
As long as there is someone in the country who is openly or secretly backed by France, the administration of that country may continue. From time to time by calling out to the world public, by saying how badly Chad is ruled, France can fulfill its commitment to democracy! When they do not want in reality, as same they did to Gaddafi, Déby may replace. Somehow or other, did French oil companies not get enough oil revenue in Chad between 1950-1999?
Chad exports an average of $ 3 billion worth of oil annually. Of course, it does not make any sense to the people of Chad. International petroleum companies, and those who want Chad to be at the head of the administration are interested in this petrol.
The reason of why France can not give up Chad is summarized here:
Despite being landlocked and poor, Chad has long played a critical role in France’s strategy on the African continent…France has maintained a somewhat peculiar relationship with its former African colonies since they gained independence in 1960…Chad served during the Cold War as a vital component of France’s defenses in its former African holdings — uranium-rich Niger, oil-producing Gabon and cocoa-growing Ivory Coast, to name a few. By maintaining a strong military presence in Chad, France was able to guard the abundant resources of its core from the reach of foreign rivals. In exchange for acting as the region’s security guarantor, France also gained preferential access to its markets…Chad’s position in the heart of the Sahel has given France the opportunity to take quick and decisive action in Africa…
Some even call for Chad “The death heart of the Africa”. Average life is 47, life expectancy is 44 in Chad. Is there any word needs to say to tell what France did in Chad by leaning it’s back to imperialism, as being playmaker in both openly and background.
2003, 1998, 1997, 1978 Republic of Congo
(Only 2003 is the date France was not alone to intervation to Congo, that one has made under the UN’s operation umberalla)
Congo, as the same with Chad, was the colony of France between 1880-1960. Even if Congo declared its independence in 1960, it became a profit element of French Total from 1968 onwards. The principal element in the French-Congolese relationship was the highly successful oil sector investment of the French petroleum parastatal Elf-Aquitaine (now called Total), which entered the Congo in 1968 and has continued to grow. France is now by far Congo’s principal external partner, contributing significant amounts of economic assistance, while playing a highly influential role.2009, France purchased approximately 9% of Congolese exports, ranking third in total exports; Congo also purchased nearly 21% of its imports from France, which was the most from any one country.
Have you ever heard name of Marien Ngouabi? He was a Congolese military, political and statesman, head of state since 1968, president of the People’s Republic of the Congo in 1970-1977. Founder and leader of the Congolese Labor Party. He pursued a policy based on the ideology of Marxism-Leninism, oriented toward the USSR… Ngouabi declared that his life is threatened by danger, and he accused the problems of Congo is “French imperialism” on March 10, 1977. And interestingly(!) five days later on March 18th, he was killed.
France has never let Congo relax. The number of skeletons in the Congo part of France’s closet is unknown.
2002, 2005, 2007, 2011 Ivory Coast
It is another French colony between 1893-1960. France has made countless military intervention to this country in the following years. Over the years, there were always been French unity and military power in change of administrations, opposition or the power side, countinuisly. If you type in “french economic interests in ivory coast” to Google, you have 11.500.000 results, 0.70 seconds. And in the dates on all these pages are different events from each other. Starting in 1951 and continuing as 2002, 2005, 2007, 2011, in 0.70 seconds, google is giving the result. In your opinion, how many more skeletons which were added in the French closet, as well as the French military interventions, and the very illegal movements that France has done to keep this country out of it’s control? Countless.
Maybe Ivory Coast’s only guilt is that the country is one of the world’s numbered cocoa bean producer. This cocoa is exploited by companies like French chocolate company Cemoi. The Ivory Coast exports $ 3.75 billion of cocoa beans annually. In addition to exporting it, some French chocolate factory factories also have factories in the country. Did you watch this video? In this video, Ivory Coast’s cocoa farmers taste the chocolate very first time. Tragic!
This is a country where produces the cocoa beans which main ingredient of chocolates that children of their own country can not eat. Of course, there is a liberal and fair share of France under this poverty and exploitation!
Rwanda is not the colony of France. Yes. However, you know the movie of “Hotel Rwanda”. It is a dramatic film about the genocide of Rwanda. The Rwandan genocide happened in 1994. In the documents from the French archives of former French president François Mitterrand, it became clear that since 1990, this massacre has been foresighted by France, and also openly supported Hutus and making the death lists.
So while the finger of France is very clearly seeming in the 100 days of genocide and the massacre which 1 million people died, France is accused Turkey on baseless lies, like the Armenian genocide, but France never looks at the real genocides, the real brutalitis, exploitations, massacres in own closet. While France was one of the main responsibilities of this genocide, which happened in front of the eyes of the all world, it gives so-called “civilization” course to Turkey, with complete lies and slanderous Armenian genocide documents, all over the world. As clearly shown in the documents, François Mitterrand, on the one hand while he is drawing a massacre in the background in front of the eyes of the world and while being inclusive, his wife, Danielle Mitterrand, starting from 90’s, was busy to blame Turkey made massacres to Kurds. Danielle Mitterrand who always opened the door to PKK terrorists, was in the status “I defend Kurds’ rights against Turkey.” What a magnificent couple was, this husband and wife!
Besides, Gabon, Comoros, Central African Republic, Somalia, Togo, Cameroon, Burkina-Faso in many times were intervened militarily by France since 1960’s. 1960’s are also the dates of independence days of them; when they rescued themselves from the colonization of France. So, France never left colonialism, it still continues.
Do you know what “CFA Franc” is? It is the name of two currencies used in parts of West and Central African countries which are guaranteed by the French treasury. That’s the innocent definition of it. Let’s come to a clearer definition, and find the answers to such questions of “Why is this money under the treasury guarantee of France?” And with every reply we find, again we would see the bitter side of colonialism under the gentle shadow of France.
The CFA franc – orginally the French African Colonial franc – was officially created on 26 December 1945 by a decree of General de Gaulle. It is a colonial currency, born of France’s need to foster economic integration among the colonies under its administration, and thus control their resources, economic structures and political systems. Think of another colonial planet of France. France guarantees the currency of it in the direction of France own currency, fixed rate of exchange with the euro (formerly French franc) unlimited convertibility of CFA francs into euros, and links the foreign currency of these countries to France own currency. What a beautiful colony, is not it!
By going back in history and continue to uncover the skeletons of the France closet, as the last country in Africa, we came to Algeria, perhaps the most important country that France gave suffer in Africa. What could France have done more in Africa, after Rwanda, where France was in the background in the death of close to 1 million people, also while it set up an exploitation scheme that would take the future of millions of people, causing the deaths of thousands with military interventions to other countries?
In 1961, Paris
Please, just watch the video.
Why these Algerian people were killed with huge anger and racism by French in the middle of Paris?Underlying this response is the systematic massacres of the Algerian people by France since 1945.
Quotes from Marxist.org
On May 8, the French colonists organized a demonstration for the end of the war in Europe. The Algerian People’s Party quickly turned this demonstration into a demonstration of independence. Thousands of demonstrators gathered in front of the railway station early in the morning started to walk to the neighborhoods where Europeans lived with the slogan “Freedom to Messali”, “Freedom to political prisoners”, “Freedom to political prisoners”, “Vive the salvation of the people”.
As soon as the numbers reached 10,000, the demonstrators started to wave the star green-white with moon Algerian flag in their hands. Although about 20 gendarmerie have tried to pull the flags away, they could have done nothing against the fury of the enthusiastic demonstrators. Then the cops who came to the scene, shot and killed a young man from his forehead, waving the Algerian flag.
With that, the crowd continued to walk with great anger into the neighborhoods where the French colonists lived. Algerians who have been living under intense oppression and exploitation for years, have attacked Europeans and killed about 100 people.
The actual events came out after that. The French colonists began the bloody counterattack everywhere in Algeria, in the face of the danger of their independence and their movement being out of control. In the country martial law was announced, cities and villages were bombarded from land and sea by French forces. Thousands of people were taken into custody, executed in groups with twenty people each, without question. They forced to dig their own graves before they were killed. The French killed countless people with heavy tortures.
On the most bloody days of the French massacre, the 7th Infantry Regiment, whose majority of its soldiers were Algerian on May 16, 1945, had just arrived at the port of Algeria. After losing half of their presence on Alsace’s front, a small number of surviving soldiers in the hope of meeting their families became horrified when they learned that their villages were wiped from map and their women, children and relatives had been massacred by French troops who fought side by side against Nazism with them. An unarmed and vulnerable people were massacred by French militias and legion troops.
On May 22, when the massacre ended to a large extent, at least 45,000 Algerians were killed. I mean 45,000 Algerians in 6 days.
In 1954 the Algerian National Liberation Front was established and its people called rebels against the French occupation. In a short period, the number of those who fought under the flag of the Algerian National Liberation Front increased to 100.00 people. France intervened wildly to suppress the rebellion. French foreign legions, blood-sheding units, fighting units in Vietnam, airborne troops were sent to Algeria. 1 million Algerian lost lives between 1954 and 1962 as the result of the bombardments of the French army, the use of chemical weapons, and the executions in the concentration camps. It has emerged with systematic torture and thousands of people were killed in concentration camps built by the French army which called the villa in UN reports. 2 million Algerians were forced to move out of their homes between 1957 and 1960. Despite this, the Algerian resistance has not been exhausted. Paris has seen it lost the war.
So, 1 million people were killed, 2 million people were forced to migrate from Algeria in 7 years by French. Here at the upper video, in 1961, those killed in Paris were protesters against these massacres.
While we have not yet completed the last century, it has already added millions to the skeletons of France’s closet by adding only Syria and Iraq outside Africa.
According to the information received from Breizatao independent media outlet, as well as a video, France-Inter radio station used more than just aggressive rhetoric in its broadcast against the winner of the US presidential election billionaire Donald Trump.
The radio station openly called for his assassination: “Donald Trump and his victory have given a hope in the American people – the hope that he would be killed even before his inauguration,” Pablo Mira, a host of France-Inter said during a prime time radio show.
Pravda.Ru sources in France say that there were no penalties applied against the radio host. Noteworthy, France-Inter radio station is known for its strong anti-Trump sentiments.
However, no representative of either the French media, or the committee for audiovisual surveillance that plays the role of a censor in the French society, has found it necessary to apologize.
Is this the level which human beings want to reach? Is this the thing that humanity wants to be?
“The assassination” for humanity! How a big pitifulness it is to make an assassination call!
And attention to the last pragraph at news:
“However, no representative of either the French media, or the committee for audiovisual surveillance that plays the role of a censor in the French society, has found it necessary to apologize.”
They wouldn’t do this. Even if they would apologize because of they do have really benefit, not becuase of they believe in “they are in wrong”. This is French’s gift for the planet Earth. This gift consists of full hypocrisy and arrogance. Especially with their thought and lobbies about left-idea, the French left is one of the most responsibles and source of the wrong perception and wrong directioning of EU people about leftist idea and world!
For example, I’ve learned well in last three days, freedom of speech is not for me. This is not related with that I’m not from this planet:) Because, if it is, you know that all mankind same reacts to the extraterrestrials more or less without differences in west or east on the planet Earth. But last three months I am realized increasingly, especially last three days, I don’t have any freedom of speech for talking about Charlie Hebdo massacre at imperialist western internet web pages.
I am following the events in three days, as same as the people. Unfortunately, I saw that the east and the west are divided sharply from each other again. The different sounds are rising on two sides. Last three days I’ve been trying to ask the questions, which are in most eastern people’s mind. But I couldn’t. They didn’t let me. Who didn’t let me?: well-known freedom of speech defenders of western media and blog pages.
Charlie Hebdo massacre is a terrible event, which has happened over the humorists and the free thoughts. The people who were killed have been selected as the victim literally. Most discreet people are aware of it. But unfortunately the number of people, who are discreet and have impartial perspective, is very few. Tragedies are the events, what can be easily manipulated on Earth history. The facts behind this tragedy and the fact that it provides benefits to whom, come out much later in generally. But in this case, there is the fact that the imperialism prepared it already for a long time. This fact is obvious. If this fact is ignored, East-West differentiation, as I said at the beginning will get sharp.
And, their questions that I wanted to ask, but I couldn’t ask are as follow with quotes.
Why the Western world did not rise for 132 children who died in Peshawar school massacre by Taliban in Pakistan at December 17, 2014? Was there any possibility in the western world eyes that maybe some of those children would have been best caricaturists of world at the future?
Why didn’t the western world react for 48 people, who killed in May 2014 in Odessa massacre in Ukraine? They were killed for their support of Russia. Is it for that Europe did not give response? Is it for that the extreme rightist Ukrainians, who prevented to firemen, who want to rescue the people inside the building, were held in high esteem by Europe?
George Orwell said that “Every human life is valuable, but the lives of some are more valuable.” In present-day conditions, are human lives changing according to democratic values from country to country?
*I guess, this original quotes “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” from Animal Farm. It should be adapted to the situation.
In 2010, Moscow Subway bombings, 40 people are died. At those days, Europe was laughing to the caricatures, which were made about this tragedy. Any caricaturist or people in Europe didn’t react potently to them. Why?
So, you throw the boomerang and it comes back to hit you square in the face. You spend months demonizing “Assad”, saying “he must go”, then what happens? Thousands of youths with empty lives jet off to Syria to become Jihadis, many of them thinking they are doing their duty for their religion (although because President Assad is a Moslem therefore any act against him is unjustified) and their country. And now what? Many of these Jihadis are totally demoralized because they see the Syrian “Opposition” for what it is, namely a bunch of thugs and terrorists impaling kids on metal spikes, slicing the breasts off women in the streets, decapitating them then raping the bodies, using Downs Syndrome children as suicide bombers and so on.
In April 2014, 25 children, in October 2014, 12 children were killed at school with bombing in Syria. And these are not big events for the Europe. In any case, almost every days Syrians are killing with bombing. Don’t Europeans find strange because of thinking that it is easy to die in Middle East? France was the initiator of UN Security Council resolution that gave permission for the invasion of Syria. In particular, is that for reason of this, France doesn’t see the dying children in Syria?
The questions with historical contents go further past, after a certain point.
Why French Government doesn’t take own responsibility to the tragedies, which have lived Burkina Faso and Algeria. When France made massacre, its name is not the massacre? The French would have given a worthless diploma to the Eastern students, which took education at French university in 19th century to emphasize that the second-class education is given to those students. “bon pour l’orient”, which was mean “enough for the orient” was written over this diploma. Or is France still thinking that “enough for the orient” in this age?
For example, Sarkozy had said “I will not apologize for Algeria.” Sarkozy was the president of the country, which has got a village which is name “Mort Aux Juifs”, that means “Death to the Jews”. This village still has the same name. He was the president of a country, who agreed to Armenian genocide with the decisions of politicians without asking historians. If anyone says that there is no Armenian genocide, in France, is imprisoned. On which justification? In accordance with the political decisions taken by politicians; not on scientific facts. France is trying to leave a nation alone with genocide, without feeling the need to look to the Ottoman archives, the Russian archives, Germany archives, even Deutsche Bank archives. Which is, somehow Armenia doesn’t open own state archives already.
And questions, questions…
As result the people ask; For whom the freedom of speech? I am asking too, for whom. It was registered last three days, not for me:) And there is a more important point: Differences in approach of the people.
Example, I can ask those questions any web pages, which are belonging to the Russians and Turks, which are living under the becoming to the police-state almost thoroughly.
In any web pages of Russia, I can ask:
“Ukrainian holocaust-holodomor is being claimed that was made in Stalin era. Is it true? The hunger of those times in Ukraine makes no sense for me. What is the historical knowledge about this?
So far, I don’t have experiences to be affronted by the other members in every website that I asked. Or they didn’t prevent my questions.
Or in any web pages of Turkey, I can ask: “Kurds are the citizens of your country, aren’t they? Why they want to rebel? Or, as alleged Armenian genocide, is it correct? What are your historical references as a scientific?
And in the same way, so far, I don’t have experiences to be affronted by the other members in every website that I asked. Or they didn’t prevent my questions.
I didn’t ask the above questions to the web pages or blogs, which are the individuals belonging to other countries. Only I had asked Ukrainian Holocaust at one blog, which I thought that blog’s owner, is from Ukraine. But, this blog has prevented to my comments after my two comments. I am thinking that the blog writes, who I made comment on their blog pages, know me more or less. I never made a comment, which was insult and provocation. But for some reason, people do not want to hear the logical and scientific questions. Well, where is the freedom of speech? To prevent the questions, brings more questions along with? Such as “why is prevented? or ” Is there something to want hiding?”
I’m trying to understand. I want to understand. You appreciate that my work is more harder because I’m not from planet Earth:) As long as similar questions about freedom of speech are increasing and answers never taking, Europe will be lonely. However, I believe the people, who are approaching to the events in a discreet and scientific way. Let’s hope that their presences increase more. Otherwise, after 2017, nothing will be the same on this planet.
I really congratulate the mainstream media of France, United Kingdom and United States. That media type has an energy which will able to make negative news about Russia and Turkey constantly. They are unlimited ambitious. Indeed, mainstream media should have a good financial resources that they can sustain continuous unchanged this anti campaign. In particular, United Kingdom, France and the United States governments made the biggest massacres on this planet. Still they do in with many ways. They were act representative of that all kinds of inhuman behavior on this planet. But they always try to show that they are doing all these in the name of the democracy. What a democracy! Blood and war and death, all mean are the same mean with that democracy. Nowadays, the mainstream media shout almost in every single moment “democracy and justice” with making argument a terrorist organization, which is describing with that it has created by the CIA with United States government, except the western world.
I wonder if humanity is really so stupid. I don’t think so. In the Middle East, which is continuously boiling such as cauldron, why is Saudi Arabia that is the biggest bigot country in there, always taking the big support from British government? Those who know the answer to this question, they already know better what it means Russia and Turkey anti-news.
In Nazi Germany, with the taken precaution as a result of the low children’s birth rate, in September 13, 1936, with Himmler’s special instruction in occupied countries (especially by the officials of the SS office in Norway) the child production facility the program, which was named Lebensborn, have opened to resume the Aryan race. What happened to those kids is a section of the hypocritical and secret history of particularly Norway and continental Europe. In 1936, the number of SS members of these facilities was 3500; that SS number has risen to 8000 at 1939. The total number of facilities is 20.
The purpose of those facilities is simple: Firstly under the leadership of the SS Viking, to move to child production with the women (mainly German women, France, Belgium, Scandinavian, and especially Norwegian women) to duplicate the Aryan race with many volunteer pro-Nazi. Even though many of the Norwegian women has expressed that they deceived and be under pressure by the Nazis, they could not prevent to the what will happen to the Lebensborn children at the future.
In Lebensborn facilities, the women who have children of the SS, in addition to special care and assistance costs, a privileged humane treatment for children was shown. After the war in Norway, 12,000 children, who were born in these facilities, were exposed to much humane treatment in a different way, as torture, abuse-rape, humiliation, until the exile from the country by the government and the public.
Not alone with this, under humane treatment, 80% of these children was institutionalized to the mental hospitals recording as mentally retarded. Experimental drugs were used mainly LSD on them.
Nowadays, some of these kids, tells his experiences in those days to the humanity. The interview, June 7, 2011 (1)
Paul Hansen: “At the end of World War II, I was locked away in a mental home.”
“Later I found out it was because I was the son of a German soldier. They called me a ’Nazi brat’. But it wasn’t my fault I was born this way. Hitler, the war, none of it is my fault. I was just a child.”
Bjorn Lengfelder: “In the Norwegian population, there was a hatred directed at us children.”
“A small brother and sister, five years old, were placed in a pig sty for two nights and two days.”
“Then in the kitchen they were put in a tub and scrubbed down with acid till they had no skin left ’because we have to wash that Nazi smell off you’.”
Gerd Fleischer: But after the war, Gerd joined the ranks of the hated. At school, she was branded a “German whore”. “Norway is a stinking rich oil nation,” Gerd tells me. “We feel that justice cannot be done without an economic compensation. Words are very cheap.”
They were the children, who have become the target for revenge. The most well-known of Norwegian Lebensborn children on the planet, is Anni-Frid “Frida” Lyngstad, who is member of Abba. She is one of the Lebensborn children, who have been kidnapped by her grandmother to Sweden.
About 30,000 French women were humiliated by the public, their children are abused, many of them were forced to leave the country with the Germans on the grounds of suspicion that they were in partnership.
Let’s see that day, the day of the Liberation of Paris…
August 29, 1944- One of the day of super-happy-civilized days of France, rescue of the occupation, three days after 26 August, the day which the French celebrate as a festival day in the streets of Paris. And the Americans are unaware of the happening of the back streets. The French and American flags are in the people hands. Movie is super. Let’s zoom in back streets and deepen scale.
The same day in the vans at the back streets, – when the soldiers are walking in the victory ceremony at the Champs-Elysees – the women, who are shown to be registered to the Lebensborn homes which were closed in August 10, being taken in the vans, as cutting their hair as did the same way to the Jews by the Nazis. Women in passing, the people are throwing the eggs or abusing to them.
A different ambience at the square, a different ambience in the back streets; anybody can’t deny the colorful personality of the French. In the vans, the women’s faces or foreheads has been painted swastika cross. Already, the majority, who was the survivors from prison as collaborators of Nazi, commits suicide.
The tragedy is that the number of children, who born from as identified pro-Nazi 30,000 women in France, is 200,000 with an estimated rate.
Already, 2 months ago, in May 1945, at least 17,000 Algerian who want to celebrate of that they get rid of the Nazi were killed in the streets by French soldiers.(2) I wonder how many children were at the Algeria streets that day…
My friend, who is from Loppp planet asked me “why the children of Nez Perce Indians, who slaughtered by General Miles, the children at Marshall-Bikini island, who have been exposed to chemicals, Lebensborn children or Algerian children’s lives and visuals are not talking in digital network web or has no value to the share as others on this planet.”
My answer was simple: “Any of the species is not much hypocritical like the mankind.”
French socialism and French kiss. One of them is hypocritical. This is, of course, French socialism. Today, who actually responsible for the oppressed people for 27 years in Burkina Faso? Why the millions people are rebelling?
Let’s see the history.
In 1987, while Mitterrand was president of France as the socialist leader, Thomas Sankara was killed, who was communist leader of Burkina Faso, where the place was an old colony of France. T. Sankara was the Che Guevera of his country in a manner of speaking. During those 4 years, which he managed his country; the educational level of the public was raised. Not just this, the health problems was reduced. Not finished, the land reform was made. And, the art and culture places were opened. He changed his country old name Haut Volta as Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso means “the country of the honest and right people” in their language.
Until he came to the power, year after year this country was the French Colony. Of course, some ones didn’t like these developments.
Now this country is the restless; these people want to get back real own rights. But, the rest of the world just watched and supported the man, who made a military coup against the T. Sankara. With a short searching, you can find the pictures of most country president with him.
Anyway, nowadays, the west sheds crocodile tears. Nothing can be fixed. Actually, no one cares about this, Africa is just a place, where the people saw their hunger or illness and after forgot it; admit ourselves. Besides, western governments accept a decent living, just only if it’s happening in their country. If you are a poor and small African country, they don’t let you live this. This is not the first or the last hypocritical act of France or west.
