    It's interesting what's happening in Africa lately. The AU is currently hosting a summit in Accra, Ghana, where Libyan leader Gaddafi is pushing for tighter political, economic and security integration. Is anyone else wondering why Gaddafi, an Arab leader, is spear-heading this initiative?

    Here's what a British reporter has to say:

    Where are the African news reports of this event?
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/country_profiles/3870303.stm

    Even the US African military command centre (AFRICOM) will be built ahead of any African security concerns.

    I think the first step to real African independence is a reliable news and information network. Something along the lines of Indymedia could be set up quickly and cheaply (http://southafrica.indymedia.org, http://nigeria.indymedia.org, etc).

    Bush has more involvment in this than we realize and it all started with NIGER.

    Bush stands to PROFIT ENOURMOUSLY from THIS.

    Tracing that...

    Then you will know why BIG BANKING A-RABS and WESTERN FRONTIERMANS are PRESSING this MATTER NOW on CONTINENTAL LEADERSHIP.

    Never expect US media to report the news to us. If they report it at all they will give it such a slant as to confuse us. Always go directly to an African source. Allafrica.com has proven to be good. There are many on the World Wide Web. We no longer have an excuse for allowing ourselves to be isolated and brain-washed.

    A couple other really good sources are Al-Ahram Weekly. Brother Gamal Nkrumah is an editor there. There is usually one or more articles by him on important events in Africa and relating to Africa. His sister also writes from time to time.

    Another is Sudan Tribune. There are others in Sierre Leone, Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and all over Africa. Never expect the New York Times to do us right. They have proven that they are enemies throughout their history.

    If other nations and people are so great as they claim or want us to think what do they need Africa and African people for.
    Allways trying to integrate something in the name of so called human freedom, diversity, or whatever.
