    Yes the topic of this thread is "Re-Colonization as we sleep", because that is what we (Black people as a collective people) are doing as our enemies are encircling us and preparing to destroy us. People open your eyes and look at what is going on around you. They are coming again...yet STILL we have no way to respond to them. Just as we had no way to combat them 120 years when the colonization of the African continent began; nor did we have any way to defend ourselves when they were enslaving our people (with the help of many sell-outs on our part); as we had no way to retaliate against the Arabs and their murderous campaigns to Islamicize 1/4 of the African contient and 2/3 of her people.

    Any way...

    Does any body know what is going on RIGHT NOW in Ivory Coast? This is something that is getting very little news in the U.S media (which is not surprising when one considers the traditional way which the media has treated any topic on Africa and her people) The French have just sent fighter jets to destroy all military war planes held by the Ivory Coast government. With this act of aggression—supposedly a response to government strikes on French positions in the country—which is being stepped up with bringing in more troops (the French already have 4000 troops, alongside 6000 U.N "peace keepers") to occupy the region. The French have been very blatant when and unapologetic, when it comes to it's intervening in the affairs of it former African colonies. They also have troops in Sierra Leone and other parts of Western Africa.

    Then, there is the issue with the British and their own machinations across the continent. They have tried to assassinate President Mugabe of Zimbabwe or destabilize his regime, and they were certainly responsible for the attempted coup in Equatorial Guinea. Now, we have British Prime Minister Tony Blair—who was over in Ethiopia last month, on his "African Commission" initiative—where he was spewing forth his own imperialist WMD (i.e. Weapons of Mass Deception) on the ever naive African populace. Along with promises of "Aid" and loans (which both keep Africa poor and dependent), he was laying out his plans (and those of his fellow European and American imperialist nations) to send troops into Africa and create base over their. This is even going to make be a top priority in the G8 summit, for crying out loud!! Those troops will go into the continent under the pretext of "stabilizing Africa". But we all know that what this really is…is re-colonization.

    When are we going to understand—when are we going to get it through our thick collective skull—that Whites (whether European, Arab or other) are our implacable and mortal enemies. To copy and modify the quote made by the fictional time traveling character Kyle Resse, in the movie The Terminator:

    **White people are out there. They can't be bargained with! They can't be reasoned with! They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. AND THEY ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT STOP, EVER, UNTIL WE ARE DEAD!!!!**

    So, Black people need to WAKE THE F#%K UP...smell the coffee, read the writing on the wall and stop this b.s of thinking that we can be integrated with Europeans or form "coalitions" with other "peoples of color". The problems faced by Blacks are that faced by an entire race. Those faced by the other "minorities" are those face by ethnic groups, NOT by a race!! There is a BIG difference. Which is often (and intentionally) confused by the media, in order to equate and diminish the historically evil treatment and suffering of Blacks at the hands of Whites, with that of these other groups whose "struggles" are nowhere near on the scale as ours.

    Brotha, unfortunately Most of us are too busy, praying instead of doing. Shaking our butts instead of shaking the grip from our minds. I fear most of us will be destroyed before waking up.

    Africa needs to start forming military & economic collaboratives if they want to remain under black rule. They are little more prepared to fight off a new "scramble for Africa" than they were the 1st time around (when each nation fought & fell separately).

    This situation highlights both the inadequacy (ineptness) of Africa’s military & its leaders. Throughout history no nation has been able to prosper without a strong military to fend off its enemies. Africa lacks a competent air force & modern military equipment, as a result it is completely helpless in situations like France’s air strike on the Ivory Coast. Indeed one nation invading another’s air space, and attacking it military is an open invitation for war. Yet the Ivory Coast dares not declare war on France, because they would not survive it. Even if the Ivory Coast obtained more planes, France would be able to detect them as soon as they entered European air space (probably as soon as the Ivory Coast entered Portugal’s air space). Yet the Ivory Coast lacked basic military equipment such as radars to warn them of France’s attack.

    The fault of the Ivory Coast weak military (and Africa in general) lies on its corrupt, and incompetent leaders! There are thousands (possibly millions) of African engineers, scientist, and military strategist. However the overwhelming majority of these are exiles or immigrants in America & Europe. Since the end of colonization, the majority of Africa’s rulers have exiled or persecuted its most educated and accomplished citizens…in order to control an uneducated, poor, and ignorant citizenry. The result of this has been wealthy rulers who have little to fear about losing power; however, their countries have not experienced economic or scientific growth (because of the exile of their nation’s builders). Africa’s engineers are more than capable of designing weapons, developing medicines, building equipment, and military strategy. Yet because of the low importance Africa places on its military & economy, these same individuals are instead working for the enemy

    Sad, but true. But is there much of a difference between the mindset of Blacks in Africa as compared to the mindset of most Blacks in America? How can WE support our native brothers and sisters when we can't seem to help ourselves? There are issues like this happening across the African Continent every day and for many many years. Do we really need to hear about another incident before we recognize that we as a people are in dire need of help? Before colonization takes on a physical form, I believe it begins in the minds of those doing the colonizing and those being colonized. Africans have gone through too much all throughout our history to say that we are caught by surprise and don't understand what's going on. That's simply not true but if anyone thinks it is, they just aren't living in the real world.

    How much more will we take before WE do something to turn things around to our advantage?

    agreed this frustrates.

    would u say that fractioning is a problem as well? if these exhiled intelectuals and scientists were allowed 2 remain would these small countries such as ivory coast, be able to a mass enough revenue necessary to build large aircraft on mass production. and even if they did would simply not having enough man power 4 a toe 2 toe conflict with a large populus suchas france not spell doom in its self?

    it sounds like from the citizens all the way up 2 the government of ivory coast want the french gone. if the government feels this way why would they not allow military scientists to build. it sounds as if they made some attempt at an aiforce. then does the problem (at least in ivory coast) lie in economics and small population? a weak military spells doom 4 the leader so why would they not build?
