NATO and America are trying to re-colonize Africa through AFRICOM. My question to African leaders is: Will you allow it? Out of the fear of the so-called power of the West, will you bow down and carry out their will which is against your best interest and the interest of African people worldwide?
If African leaders don’t stand up today then you will find yourself facing the wrath of the fast-awakening of your people.
Look at the arrogance of Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State, when speaking to the African Union on June 13, 2011 in Addis Ababa–the capital of the African Union! She stated:
“I know it is true over many years, Gadhafi played a major role in providing financial support for many African nations and institutions, including the African Union, but it has become clearer by the day he has lost his legitimacy to rule, and we are long past time when he can or should remain in power.”
That’s some gall; to go right to us, and tell us, like children, what she wants us to do! See, this is your arrogance, and your hypocrisy, that will end your world! What you’re saying, Mrs. Clinton, is for yourself. Your legitimacy is gone. And maybe you, and those like you, have lost your legitimacy; and you soon will not be in power.
She further stated:
“I urge all African states to call for a genuine cease-fire and to call for Gadhafi to step aside,” she said. “I also urge you to suspend the operations of Gadhafi’s embassies in your countries, to expel pro-Gadhafi diplomats, and to increase contact and support for the [rebel] Transitional National Council…”
America, that has done nothing for Africa! You dare send this woman there to talk to Africans like they are your children? Let me tell you something, Africa: If you accept that, you deserve what you get!
