14 African Nations Being Forced By France to Pay Taxes for the ‘Benefits’ of Colonialism

west africa 1

Fourteen nations listed below are in agreement to deposit 65 percent of all foreign currency reserves in a shared reserve fund to France. The countries established the Monetary and Economic Union of West Africa. Their currency, the CFA-Franc, is printed under supervision of the French National Bank in Chamaliéres, France.

Christof Lehmann wrote for nsnbc.me in 2012, “France is indebting and enslaving Africans by means of Africa’s own wealth; for example: 12.0000 billion invested at three percent creates 360 billion in interests which France grants as credits to Africa at an interest rate of five to six percent or more. The allegory of ‘Bleeding Africa and Feeding France’ is no exaggeration, not alarmist, and not revolutionary.”

All numbers below according to the World Bank.

  1. I cannot believe this, I first learned about this about six months ago, an article on SiliconAfrica.

  2. Is this considered reparations?
    Or is this something else?

  3. Jay Contreras says:

    Then they are some brain dead dummies. There is NO way if they had ANY self-respect & pride or MANHOOD, would they submit to this. It seems that African so called leaders ain't worth 2 cents.

  4. Elegance M A Jones says:

    how are they being "forced".

  5. Gary Smith says:

    Is it that they cannot trust their own people to hold the funds?

  6. For a subject as serious as this one, I deplore the lightness of this "article". Please DO SOME GOOD RESEARCH AND GOOD WRITING before you post this quick-overly-simplified-and-VERY-LAZY stuff! Please! It is a very SERIOUS issue. It was eloquently written about by Pr. Koulibani from Ivory Coast some years back. There is a pre-colonial system set up by France and imposed on African former colonies, called "Comptes d'Operations" that forces these countries to have their revenues from their natural resources and other exporting goods be deposited in the Banque de France. Then France allocates each year a certain percentage of those revenues to each country… 50…55%. African were told that their respective currencies (cooked up by France) would have to be indexed on the French Franc… And of course, a certain tax has to be paid for the "service" of printing these currencies…

  7. there is always disbelief coming from dem house negros , about their masa. funking chimps!

  8. Jay Contreras says:

    Sounds like 'sharecropping, doesn't it? The more things change…

  9. Wole Ifa says:

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Brother Jean-Pierre!!!!! I cannot understand WHY these so-called "black" online publications SEEM to be "so weak!" Do they WANT us to run around spouting-off claims we got from there only to be EMBARRASSED by the DETAILS of the situation lately??

    I would like to ask the same question as the sista below, Elegance M A Jones, "WHY are they FORCED??" Can't they create an alternative monetary system?? What, are the French going to invade, or bomb, them if they refuse??

    Come on, how about a little JOURNALISM, Atlanta Blackstar!!!

  10. Bomani Asad says:

    Thank you for clarifying, I had to read the article twice just to TRY to make sense of it.

  12. To answer the questions by Wole Ifa and Elegance M.A. Jones, yes… in theory these former French colonies can create their own monetary system… just in theory, because, France will NEVER let that happen. In fact, Sekou Toure from Guinea did just that. He wanted FULL independence from France (and was the only one to have that courage at the time)… He created his own currency. France flooded his country with fake money to devaluate his currency. The people who did this actually own up to it in a documentary. Guinea was isolated and became a very poor country. You see… if France looses the ties with its former colonies, France would fall, OVERNIGHT, just like Portugal. The ONLY thing that is making France stay afloat is teh African resources that France has been able to capture. To that curse, I must add the weakness of our own leadership. Our so-called Presidents are actually some kind of Governors picked up by France. They DO NOT serve the interests of the people. Yes… people are also weak and have not yet reached that point of being tired of being tired of that shit! So… we deserve in a way, the continued exploitation in the neo-colonialism re-arranged by France in the former colonies…

  13. Brother Jean-Pierre, what's the name of the documentary?

  14. Mamadou Koulibaly wrote the article "Slavery by Another Name: CFA Franc" It can be found here http://www.africafiles.org/article.asp?ID=23266

  15. Wole Ifa No they don't need to bomb or invade, they are already there in those countries, their military bases all over Africa. When someone start to do something about France, they have what they call Legionairs who go around killing people they call trouble makers, killing whole families. Other blacks doing this. They did this when they came in to get people to be held as slaves.

  16. Nzingha Shabaka Blacks worldwide need to boycott French products and services. The CFA is more insidious than Apartheid, yet most of our people know nothing about it.

  17. Kwame Piankhi , there are several documentaries revealing the duplicity of France in its former colonies, along with the atrocities France committed. I can reveal here, that people of my generation (50 … or over 50) grew up VERY unaware of these facts. It took me living in France in the 80's to discover these facts in documentaries. France systematically confiscated the information for the last 50 years! Internet, as I said , is changing everything!… Here's the name of one documentary where you can hear about Guinea and Sekou Toure : " La Francafrique Documentaire"… Here's the link on Youtube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjEKcEUT9X0
    It's in French… Sorry there's not yet an English version…
    By the way England was just as atrocious in Africa. But the most vicious was definitely France. It's STILL ON AS WE SPEAK… Remember Laurent Gbagbo in Ivory Coast two years ago?…
    On that page on Youtube you have other stories, such as the Bokassa story that are very instructive.

  18. Roxanne Why says:

    How long has this been happening??? I was going to ask how the U.N. Could allow just a thing… Then I remembered the situation between Zionists and PALESTINIANS, how the Israelis are occupying their (the Palestinians') homeland…

  19. Emmett Xaa says:

    Thanks for the clarity brother. We need to do something to stop this thou!!!!

  20. Emmett Xaa says:

    Jean-Pierre Sighe we all are unaware now is the time to learn and implement real reform for our people. I'm tired of begging a nation which is still trying to re enslave us!!!!

  21. Emmett Xaa You are correct my brother. The technique used by the colonizers, for the last 50+ years has been to confiscate the information and to plant seeds of hatred and divisions between the different diaspora of the Children of Africa… Now, with the Internet (they did not see that coming) the Truth is being revealed faster and faster. For a long time, different groups of African People (or Black People) were taught to hate other Blacks in different places. That had worked… till now! We ALL have the responsibility to re-write our COMMON DESTINY! Nobody else would do it for us, as it is not in their interest to do so…

  22. Jean-Pierre Sighe SiliconAfrica has an article on the subject that is more indepth. The bottomline this article here does give us something, it tells us something that is going on that is a crime in my opinion. How criminal is it, that these countries are paying this money for nothing. SiliconAfrica touches on why the criminals say these African countries should pay them, and their reason for all the improvement France made while they were illegally in the countries, this is sure nonsense, and these African countries should not have agreed to it. Not only that France have their military bases all over the countries, the bases do no belong to the African countries, are the charging them for using their country for their bases. another thing why would a country allow another country (their enemies) to have military bases in their country. You really need to read SiliconAfrica's article in the article it talks about France's own former president Jacques Chrac said in 2008, "We have to be honest and acknowledge that a big part of the money in our banks come precisely from the exploitation of the African continent, and that without Africa France will have no history in the 21st century". Maybe you are not pleased with the article here, but like I said, it is something we can use, and if further information is needed, then do the research, they cannot give every detail, and for you to come back and criticize and shows no appreciation, puzzles me. You are not going to see anything from white supremacy telling us about this, because they approve.

  23. There you go!! I like the fact that you established that parallel with the Palestinians struggle. These Zionists have always wanted to CONTROL the world. A sickness!! They cannot just live with other people in harmony. No! They have to dominate. It is EXACTLY that same mentality that IS at work on the Continent of Africa… as we speak. There has never been an Independence. The colonizers simply re-arranged their cards, as the colonies were becoming TOO HEAVY to manage; also the Patriots in the colonies had been able to galvanize the population (with no Internet right??) into fighting for their True Independence! The wind for Independence was blowing stronger and stronger. So the colonizers (France and England… the most vicious ones who stayed after Portugal, Spain and Germany left) arranged for the so-called "independence", making sure ALL the major elements of True Independence (such as contol over the Raw Materials and control over the economy was NEVER relinquished. So, they picked their "governors" they called "presidents"… They confiscated the information… created chaos when it was necessary for their interests, with all the many… many coups-d'etats for the last 50 years… But Internet came! Now, the ball is swinging in our camp!…

  24. To Brother Jean-Pierre Sighe & All Other Black Brothers / Sisters,

    All undeceived, highly alert, intelligent, knowledgeable, unbought, and totally unafraid black men and black women in America, Caribbean, Africa, Israel, Europe and elsewhere worldwide who really do know all about or at minimum a great deal about the evil injustices deliberately being carried out against the black race worldwide by the governments of America, European nations, and their hand-picked, bought, collared, and leashed sick black minions all dedicated to preventing and destroying in any way possible the truth, education, knowledge, independence, self-sufficiency, self-empowerment, and overall health of black people en mass must create independent online internet and printed publications revealing the truth to black people about what they know has either already happened, about to happen, planned for escalation and can be anticipated as detrimental to black people especially in America, Caribbean, and Africa.

    Black people need to immediately realize that they absolutely can not and must not ever depend on white American or European mainstream media news organizations owned and controlled by rich whites nor depend on absolute and full truth from any of the many entirely compromised black American media news organizations both of whom will never ever really truly nor fully inform black people in America about what's being done to and against black people in America, Caribbean, Israel, or Africa nor will they inform black people in Africa about what's really being done to and against black people in America, Caribbean, Israel, Europe and elsewhere worldwide.

    Knowledge and information is power. The very last thing that powerful white people and their stupid bought black politicians and other black helpers in America, Africa and elsewhere want is for black people en mass in America, Africa and worldwide to really know about and to finally decide to make all necessary sacrifices to unite together against what white Euro-American and white European countries' governments are doing to continue to dominate, exploit, control, and literally destroy black people en mass in every way possible. Some of our worst enemies of all reside within our own camp cloaked in black skin, but who are covert, sick, and dangerous supporters and tight allies of Caucasians' evil deception, lies, greed, exploitation, domination and false supremacy as long as their pockets, careers and those of their family members and friends are rewarded by powerful whites.

    If you, I, and others want the truth written and disseminated to black people in America, Africa, and elsewhere worldwide then we, all those able, must create our own independent online and printed publications. And, equally important, we black people must unite together under and to obey Almighty God receiving His Strength, Guidance, and Protection to completely separate ourselves from all evil peoples and enemies as His Chosen People Israel who we truly are, sacrifice, and be fearless of mankind via The Power of Almighty God!

  25. Deven Brown says:

    These are sovereign nations. The embarrassment is that they are willing to pay because they continue to identify more with the people who have exploited them for centuries. It is obvious as they straighten their hair and bleach their skin.

  26. Jean-Pierre Sighe , yes i said it to many that Laurent Gbagbo was removed cos he wanted to change the order of doing things.

  27. Kwame Piankhi Our African countries with weak no good leaders, who refuse to be like President Mugabe of Zimbabwe, and murdered Prime Minister of Congo Patrice Lumumba, Africa will forever be what we see today. Europe and her allies was responsible for murdering Lumumba. That is one of the main reason most of the black leaders of Africa are nothing but sell outs, they are afraid, and refuse to plan a way to stop white people from bullying them, and murdering them and stealing their resources.

  28. Bad leaders! The bastards that rule most of these francophone countries don't care about their people, they have sold them out, west Africans will never learn to deal with Caucasians with long spoons even after their looting us in the guise of bringing 'civilisation'.
    I blame the past Nigerian governments for not covertly stirring up the interest of true independence from the french in the hearts of her French-speaking neighbours.
    Having puppet countries as neighbours is dangerous for Naija.

    HMMM interesting these are the same countrys that refused to unite under a UNITED STATES OF AFRICA (USA) as proposed by Col Quadaffi 8 years ago and go on the gold standard using gold as a means of backing their currency and for the payment of oil in stead of the USD or the Euro.Instead the leaders and Finance ministers of these countrys have elected to be pimped out economically by the western colonial powers France, England, Germany and the USA.Christof Lehmann wrote for nsnbc.me in 2012, “France is indebting and enslaving Africans by means of Africa’s own wealth; for example: 12.0000 billion invested at three percent creates 360 billion in interests which France grants as credits to Africa at an interest rate of five to six percent or more.

  34. All the French speaking countries in Africa are enslaved in that financial and economic scheme. Laurent Gbagbo in Ivory Coast did his part to change things… He's in prison. At least he was not killed like Kadafi… It is important that the sad situation in Africa be understood by all its children on this planet. The colonizers did a good job in separating, dividing and confiscating the information, making it hard to all the children of Africa of all the disporas, to know what' going on…

  35. Thank you Jean-Pierre Sighe! Both your comments are on the money. If we the people stood up, the europeans could not exploit us as they do. Bottom line!

  36. Jean-Pierre Sighe ,if you're on fb, friend me!

  37. Anthon Christopher Dude, Roxanne Why was wrong to comment on your looks or appearance and deserves criticism. But your come back was even worse and unjustified and reflects a serious lack of Black consciousness.

  38. Roxanne Why says:

    You're hilarious Christopher!!! I had to look at your photo closer to see who was commenting on the size of my lips… Are you kidding me?! Your comment can't be anything other than self hatred seeing as our lips are are about the same size…

  39. Roxanne Why says:

    And as for your unsure ness of my gender, it's clear that I am female, you just don't have a sensible comeback… Newsflash, my insult was in regard to your chimp comment… So when you are ready to actually discuss that hit me up, douchebag…

  40. ok female douchebag, you won. yeeeeeeh! lol

  41. Abdul Konan says:

    It is shameful but all those those information are correct. More, all the french speaking countries pay the light bill, water bill, the phone bill one family: Bouygue: Google it. This family gave 40% of his businesses to France. All those companies were created by African countries. France asked in 1980 to 1990 to sell the companies bcz in capitalism system( it said) a government cannot own a business. Today Ivory Coast government rent its office ( president's Office). The building was built by France during colonization on Ivory coast land..

  42. Lamar Long says:

    I just read this article and am searching online for more clarification. They provided no proof and it seemed very very simplified, and I'm NO SCHOLAR by any sense of the word. Thank you for the additional information.

  43. Mwasike Vie says:

    I believe the french colonialism was based on a big lie that if you talj like us,take our names and adopt out attitudes then you are one of us.the francophone africa bought these lies.a good example congo drc.france held a french steaking countries confrence and they know how the country has suffered under them and belgium.they were boasting how congo has biggest french speaking population and yet the country is ruins.thats subjugation.the congolese seem to believe this lie because rwanda embarrased the french president years ago by changing their language to english and talking to this president in english not french.nobody need french anymore because its influenced has gone down.only the africans are keeping it alive but with no benefit.the british was a brutal power but they left a room fir the oppresor to fight back.they developed whete they conqueted.look at hong kong or singapore and yet this islands now have full independence.many nations which were under british are doing better.france is more concerned about stealing resources thats why people like biya of cameroon and bongos of gabon are in power though unpopular.patronage from francr.

  44. Jean-Pierre Sighe Africa Needs It's Own Bank. Murder Should Never Be Accepted. Should Not Be Accepted. Kadafi Was Uniting Africa Threw Africaz Own Currency. Just Like Saddam Hussein Was On The Same Mission. Kadafi Was An Elder. How Do You Get Away With Killing Elders? Everytime They Kill A African Leader Things Are The Way Of Life Gets Worse. Now They Have Two Sudan, South And North Sudan, How Is That Better? Kadafi Was On A United Africa, Too. We Have To Awaken The Masses With Truth. Parliament Is Running Alot Around The World. America Is Even Being Dictated By Parliament. Look At What We Are Going Threw Here In America.
    Africa Will Dominate The Game If We Present A Gold Currency. Parliament In Stacking Their Reserves With Africa's Natural Resources. No Africans Should Be Homeless Or Without A Monthly Deposits Into Their Accounts From An African Bank. Someone Needs To Check The Federal Reserve! How Are They Going To Assassinate Independent African Nations Leaders And Still Their Gold & Oil. Because Africa Has More GOLD & Oil. Mother Africa Has More Natural Resources Then Any Nation.
    Africa Needs To United And Become 1 Africa. We Need To Stop Allowing The Murders Of African Rulers. How Is Libya Better Off? Without Kadafi? We Africans Need To Unite As One All Over And Do It Right. Their Is Only One Race The Human Race? It Is Time To Do Thing Out Of Love And The Betterment Of The Human Race. Because They Are United In Trying To Cut Our African Numbers Down.
    This Is A New Time And Era, First We Awaken The Human Race With Truth Wisdom And Overstanding (understanding) Of It All. Then We Correct The Wrongs. All Over The Earth Because We Are The Only Human Race On This Planet. This Is A Responsibility For Everyone On This Planet…
    GOD Bless The Human Race.
    1 Love
    1 Real New World Order… Done The Right Way.

    Jean-Pierre Sighe You seem to be echoing the authors views. What is the difference between being enslaved and being forced? So what is the lightness in the article you seem to deplore?

  47. Marlon Hill says:

    JP Sighs,

    it is 4AM–WHAT is your issue with the 'article'?

    The article is saying 14 Afrikan Nations are getting French kissed (more like SCREWED–but don't miss da point). If you don't think the French got halitosis (STANK breath = da DEAL STINK), again, whuss your problem with da article???

    da FIRST thing i thought was the WHY would those Nations make such an agreement (n SOME portions of da comments offer insight/partially explain).

  48. Marlon Hill says:

    autocorrect messed up da spelling of your surname–i typed SIGHE

  49. Gadaffi was going to nix this by uniting many African countries under one African currency tied to gold. That is why the Western Bankers had him killed and used NATO to do it.

  50. ON THE ATROCIOUS DEHUMANIZATION OF AFRICANS/BLACKS AND PLUNDERING OF AFRICAN/BLACK RESOURCES/WEALTH BY THE WEST/ARABIANS/AUSTRALIANS!

    "Honestly, if I were to be an enlightened/well-educated European or American, Arabian or Australians, especially if I have any beneficial linkage to the so-called 'slaves' trading or owning families, I will shamefully, remorsefully and meekly spend my entire life as a 'humanitarian' and/or 'philanthropist' using the available resources/wealth at my disposal to do reparation, render penitential services and do charity work in Africa and among the black communities in Europe, Americas, Arabia or Australia in an effort to seek for forgiveness from Africans/blacks, the humanity and God Almighty just in atonement for the atrocities and barbaric past of the parents/forebears of the present Europeans, Americans, Arabians and Australians whom their families, businesses and countries actually owe whatever wealth, achievement or development they may claim they have made today to the toils, sweat and blood of Africans/blacks whom they sacrilegious dehumanized as well as forcefully turned to beasts of burden and commodities for trade through their heinous slave trading expeditions in Africa and the diaspora, the criminal colonization of Africa and devilish plundering of Africa/black communities in their inordinate rapacity and greed for African/black resources/wealth" – Comrade (Barrister) Benedict Chu'O Ezeagu, Founding Executive Director, Movement for African Independence and Development(MAID).

  51. The rationale for those African leaders allowing themselves to be pimped by France and other European powers.Only shows clearly the existence of a slave colonized mentality and they don't understand the importance of controlling the countrys resources.If they do they are afraid that if they do the Western colonialists.Who hide behind the United Nations will other throw their government with paid insurgents like they did with Libya.

  52. No it is called a sell out.That is the rationale for those African leaders allowing themselves to be pimped by France and other European powers.Only shows clearly the existence of a slave colonized mentality and they don't understand the importance of controlling the countrys resources.If they do they are afraid that if they do the Western colonialists.Who hide behind the United Nations will other throw their government with paid insurgents like they did with Libya.

  53. Wole Ifa, idk what all the surprise is about? they're doing the same thing to us here in america too, especially to the black folk n' yet we continue to spend with our oppressors making them have Wealth, while we blacks get our degrees being so happy to work for our oppressors receiving a great income thinking that they're doing fine NOT, INCOME IS NOT WEALTH..they the white supremacy knows that we blacks don't understand this. we think we are included having an income, or comfortable income, spending our earnings with our own oppressors when nothing goes back to our blacks communities no matter what a black contributes to their society. So you the blacks get arrested for nothing, innocently shot down, and over charged for everything we need, that was and is originally yours anyway. Then we blacks shun one another n' don't SUPPORT NETWORK AMONG YOUR OWN n' BUY BLACK, wake up..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_illfsBy5k.

    France had former colonies in North Africa, such as Algeria, so why are they not forced to pay these ridiculous taxes yet all the West African countries are paying it?

  57. Jean-Pierre Sighe The documentary you suggested, " La Francafrique Documentaire", has been taken off youtube and is no longer available.

  58. Premiere nation esclavagiste pays qui vit du sang des africain france soit maudite a jamais

  59. Jean-Pierre Sighe Britain, not just England. The wealthy of all the UK were in on it, including many church leaders who owned interests in slaves.

  60. Derrick Murray Because some powerful families now have all world currency by the goolies. Ulitmately everyone on lower incomes will be in the shit.

  61. This is a serious indictment of the west's idea of capitalism. Would it even survive if western nations were forced to stop looting the third world?!

  62. Wilfred Grey says:

    This is like taking one"s turkey or chicken, consuming it then give them back the bone in the name of charity.

  63. Erma Vance says:

    THIS IS WHAT FRANCE DO WHEN THE AFRICAN COUNTRIES TRY TO BREAK AWAY FROM THEM. FRANCE IS SO EVIL.History has shown that despite years of African fighting to liberate themselves, France repeatedly used many exForeign legionnaires to carry out coups against elected presidents. This included Jean-Bedel Bokassa who assassinated David Dacko, the first President of the Central African Republic. In the last 50 years, a total of 67 coups has occurred in 26 African countries, of which 16 are ex-French colonies. This indicates that France is desperate to hold on to whatever land it has in Africa. http://www.worldbulletin.net/haber/152967/french-colonial-tax-still-enforce-for-africa

  64. The African continent needs to take back Africa. All outside interests have to be booted out. Where are the real men to take charge??

  65. … and making them pay for the turkey all over again

  66. Men and women who can stand up to this terrorism but without education, this is very difficult. The American government is doing the same in Central Africa. We need to demand that this ends as African Americans

  67. Brian Cook says:

    It is time to change that whole process. What is going on must be stopped. Robbing people of their freedom and independence is a crime!!1

  68. We can never be free until we give back all foriegn religion.. Connect with your ancestors.. Develpoed worlds dont kill their originality.. We ,ust go back and reconnect ourselves, rebuild our foundation.. Call upon the gods of or land, not the god of another mans land.. We had our own way of life before western contact, now we forget who we are, and this generation doesnt even want to know, to the extent that we kill it by fire by ourselves.. Let take back africa

  69. Alke Bulan says:

    The one with the guns always call the shots

  70. Erma Vance Great points! I am so disheartened to see mother Africa continually being raped and pillaged. This has been happening for centuries..not just the last 1/2 century.

  71. very true….But we Africans are idiots

    Leaders did fight these efforts. Many of those who lead the move tobreak these economic chains were assassinated (, or overthrown by squads paid by the French government. Please do your research.France feels as if it is entitled to the riches from it’s colonies, they will fight tooth and nail to keep the funds flowing. It is a nasty situation and NATO or some type of international pressure needs to beapplied. At the very least, we can bring this travesty out into the open. Here is something to begin with.

  73. Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter I am well aware of the freedom fighters at different points of European African/Arab to try and break free of colonization and controlling of the resources and financial currencys tied to the Franc .You say that "Many of those who lead the move to break these economic chains were assassinated (, or overthrown by squads paid by the French government. Please do your research ? Well I have lived in East Africa Tanzania/Zanzibar along the swahili coast have travelled and consulted with many scholars and political activists.I know the "ledge" and the truth of the matter that the squads and organizations disrupt and over throw revolultionary goverments will continue unless the countrys unite like the Chinese have done to challenge the western colonial powers.The truth is most of the African goverment leaders are sell outs not all but most .They sold Gadaffi out an left him hnging when he tried to form a USA..UNITED STATES OF AFRICA..until that slave mentality is addressed the continent will continue to be the richest and suffer the most by helping the colonizers oppress each other for a few crumbs and European bank accounts.

  74. Greg Baugher says:

    Got this right. Sad day when Gadaffi was murdered by NATO. Now look at the mess that created. No one talking about this on any news station.

  75. These francophone countries are blind, but mind you you cannot take anything away from France. It is a brilliant monetary coup and I only wished my french speaking african countries had come up with the idea first. All is not lost, first withdraw from French Umbrella, and place resrves with IMF(of which France is a member). In the meantime start dialogue with AU to form African Reserve Bank, that might take several years to fruition, but could be done. The rest will be up to ARB.

  76. Can't you all read? 14 African Nations Being Forced By France to Pay Taxes for the ‘Benefits’ of Colonialism. The countries agreed to paying france so they could get rid of the white man in their country….and 100 years later they are still paying….theyare still in slavery……and it needs to stop…that iswhy poor countries stay poor. Rich slave owner countries are still collecting and refuse to stop.

    The interviews Christan Amanpour won't have

  78. Frantz Ch says:

    They don't obey…the west portrays them as tyrants and kills them. Is it a coincindence that Gadaffi got assasinated on live TV as opposed to having his day in court? Is it a coincidence that we didn't hear anything about the killer who interfeered with the judicial process? Is it a coincidence that the only leaders who are still alive and also oppose the west, are those who have an army big enough and enough allies to cause WW3 or…keep hostage one of the countries that are on our friend's lists? Everyone else just gets "removed" as soon as they say a word against the west.
