If you thought Africa was boned before what until you hear this... only a few minutes ago Robert Mugabe was sworn in as Chairman of the AU, Robert Fucking Mugabe the guy who...
>Turned Africa's greatest food producer into a
>Stole land and enforced an Iron Dictatorship over Zimbabwe.
>Decimated their economy and pushed them back into the dark ages.
>Ruthlessly stamps out opposition with murder targeting political rivals families.
>Lets gangs of ZanuPF supporters ravage the countryside raping, looting and killing if anyone
so much as whispers of resistance.
The future is dark for Africa!
Dark-...er, rather. It's bad, is what I'm getting at, jokes aside.
African Union. The simplest way to put it is, it's like a cheaper version of the European Union.
>nigger continent elects a nigger representative
Is this surprising? Just get out of this shithole and come back to Europe. Or wait, it looks just like Africa these days. Nevermind.
It's like the Eurasian Union/Arab Union/European Union (not really this last one since it's so integrated at this point its bordering on confederation)
Think United Nations but smaller and more pointless.
Incidentally though they are trying to united Africa into a single federation USA style by 2025, so there's that.
Hopefully none he's so old and pre-occupied with running his on dictatorship but on the other hand he is old so he might just decide to kill every white person in Africa and declare war on Great Britain who fucking know with this guy.
The AU does actually do stuff sometimes, like they have an army and tanks and attempt to put down tribal feuds and whatnot. It's Africa, so it's obviously not THAT effective, but at least they try.
Your flag looks very minty.
More importantly, why didn't South Africa get that position? You're the only relevant African country, why should a barbarian get that position?
No Hitler was a moron who failed to get into art school it was the guys working behind the scenes that made the Third Reicht function. He still managed to fuck things up and make terrible tactical decisions.
WHO FUCKING CARES ABOUT FUCKING AFRICA
IF YOU CARE SO MUCH GO SUCK BONOS COCK AND QUIT SHITTING UP THE BOARD
mfw the UK Government and United Nations thought they were doing the people of Zimbabwe a favour by pushing out Ian Smith, and now almost 40 years later blacks are still dying at the hands of this guy.
Smith even pointed out explicitly to the British that the moment Zanu came to any power the first thing they would do is massacre the opposing tribes.
Thanks politicians, you fucking idiots. You confuse "appearing to do the right thing" with actually doing the right thing.
Next story at 10: How South Africa is going the way of Zimbabwe if Jacob Zuma is elected again. I say "elected"... but you know how the vote counting works when blacks are in-charge of the political system...
Yeah, that's all bullshit devised by the Allies in concert with Hitler's failed generals post-WW2. Read David Irving's work. He's one of the world's (if not the) leading Hitler historian and he argues that Hitler actually made extremely good tactical decisions and his generals later just smeared him because that's what the allies wanted to hear and it helped save face.
>Your flag looks very minty.
Your flag looks very crossy.
Mugabe only makes out he hates England because it fits his political narrative. You are poor because of england, you cant eat because of england, there is no electricity for 30 years in your town because of england, our buildings have crumbled because of england.
Like attacking Russia in the winter?
If he had made sound tactical decisions, his reign would have been longer then 12 years and his nation would not have been divided up by foreign powers.
African Union is a heap of shit that will condone anything for a few bucks.
If it wasn't for the IMF and other post developing nations playing the long-term game for future commodity and labor markets propping up "the dark continent" the whole house of cards would have collapsed by now along with the AU
I don't know our current President is a moron of epic proportions so I doubt it'd be much better but at least he's not completely off his rocker. The only other countries I can think of that might have run where Uganda or Nigeria since the rest don't do much. But Nigeria's president is not popular right now with all the shit happening there and I don't know what's happening with Uganda's president. Still Mugabe is the last person who should have been chosen heck I suppose the Egyptian president would have been worse though.
never a more appropriate time to post this image
For any of you that interested in Zimbabwe or Rhodesia, you might want to seek out the interview that Ian Smith gave Sir David Frost, via radio link, in September of 1968.
It is quite long, and quality is shaky due to the technology but I think some of you would with hindsight get something out of it.
Nope there are only two opposition parties worth anything one (the DA) only knows how to complain about what the ANC (ruling party) does and is run by a white woman and it hasn't been long enough since apartheid where another white person can expect to get voted in as president. The other is just a bunch of hooligans who only exist because of youth anger towards the sheer incompetence of the ruling party.
Confirms what I have heard. There were 1 or 2 seemingly decent white candidates (one guy a former dentist?) a while ago... but SA is not ready for a white president, no matter how bad the alternatives are.
I also heard that Zuma had pretty much "sorted out" any serious black opposition to him over the years, sterilising the ground as it were...
Zimbabwe's actually recovering better than Botswana.
How can it "recover better than Botswana" when Botswana has no need to "recover"?
Botswana is hands-down the best, wealthiest, most stable and most civilised black country on the planet. Compared to Zimbabwe, it is fucking paradise.
AIDS is a bitch, Pierre. Now go eat your frogs.
Recovering from what?
Nobody said Botswana is perfect but it's the only country in Africa that isn't a complete toilet. Being as you're French, I suppose you're actually a butthurt nigger from Senegal so let me translate this into Senegalese for you: OOGA BOOGA WOOGA NIG NOG JIGABOO WHITE WIMMINZ WHITE WIMMINZ ALLAHU AKHBAR DURKA DURKA JIHAD JIHAD CHARLIE HEBDO.
Tu comprends maintenant,, M. le Grenouille?
Butthurt Botswanan detected
I just wikied Botswana, it has a tiny population but enormous natural ressources. I'm guessing most of the money from these natural ressources goes into the pockets of a few white guys, while the native niggers starve and die of aids, huh
Just checked, 1/3 of the population lives below the poverty line. What's next, you're going to claim that equatorial guinea is a rich and advanced country? Lmao
It just goes to show that South Rhodesia was a much better place while under the rule of Ian Smith and the Rhodesian government.
That's nice but it's a non sequitur. You said "Zimbabwe's actually recovering better than Botswana."
You said it here:
>Zimbabwe's actually recovering better than Botswana.
So recovering from what? What is Botswana "recovering" from? You do understand the English language....right?
>Butthurt Botswanan detected
Yeah, because white guys posting on 4chan from the UK are all Botswanan. I guess the guy from Botswana was right and you're just a Senegalese nigger.
>only a few minutes ago Robert Mugabe was sworn in as Chairman of the AU
>People say I'm responsible for slavery as a white person
>I ask if they're responsible for Mugabe, Imin, or even general butt naked as a black person
>People usually say who?
>People who know who they are say they're the result of white colonialism
>Just curious, are you white?
I don't think a Frenchman should be asking that question.
>its life expectancy is below 50???
Still better than the life expectancy at the Charle Hebdo office.
Then what the fuck was the point of your post, you fat black bastard?
You replied to a question I asked someone else and gave a completely irrelevant answer. I would ask if you're mentally retarded but since your flag shows you're American, it's a bit of a redundant question.
Expect a German to know how to burn people.
Okay let's run through this since you're slow.
I asked for clarification on Botswana's "recovery".
You replied with some noise about diamonds.
I asked how that related to my question.
You threw a temper tantrum and called me an "ape".
I spanked you in reply because you deserved it for being a naughty boy.
Now you're throwing an even bigger tantrum.
And somehow, in your adolescent rage and petulaent narcissism, you think that you come out of this looking like you're not a complete and utter fucking arsehole.
Tell you what, sparky, I'll make it easy on you. I can go on all day making you look like a prick if that's what you want. Smarter move on your part might be to dry your tears of impotent rage and go back to 9gag where you belong. Maybe you can talk your mommy into making you some tendies and giving you a blowey joey.
>Oh shit it's Belgium I don't have any jokes for Belgians.
Nor should you.
>I don't think a Frenchman should be asking that question.
Also, this thread's indicative of the west's response. We're too busy arguing amongst ourselves and the east to dethrone him.
mfw all the liberal guilt in 100 years when EU, US, China, and Russia are all utopias and AU is a shithole
The rapid decolonisation of the British empire was truly the worst thing to happen to the world post-WW2 (and yes I include the Rwandan genocide in that).
British rule could have helped keep civility in various parts of the world. Places like India had to become independent, but other places would have been much better just allowing the UK to help govern them.
Oh well, all is fucked now.
If Mugabe had anything of value to trade (oil, diamonds, his allegiance) then the West might do something about it. If he had a mountain made of high grade copper ore things might be different. But he doesn't, so we've left the people of Zimbabwe to rot under him these past 40 years.
fuckwit , if it wasn't for the uprising in czechoslovakia , Operation Barbossa would have been on time , not a few months behind. Hitler could have taken Moscow had he not diverted south into the oil feilds as well. But I don't expect you to just look up a common /pol/ topic.
almost all hand amputations was done by blacks to blacks.
King Leopold (which never even visited congo) didn't have the finances to invest heavily in congo. The few belgians who got there had to be very fruitful of the sparse resources.
For every bullet that was used, the blacks had to bring proof they shot someone, so they took hands of dead blacks as proof back.
The blacks took over the practice to fight rivalling tribes,since they now had guns, but amputated them because they could. No whites to oversee it, since they were very few.
Enlgish kikes became jealous of rubber wealth in congo, launched a campaign to discredit leopold's congo, while ofc overlooking the tragedies that were happening in their own colonies.
lots of cruel stories can be found about first colonial years in congo, but most of them were africans killing africans, now with better means.
Of course belgians were responsible by giving them these means.
Since so few belgians were in congo at the beginning, the only way a policing force could be established was by recruiting blacks.
Almost no western oversight + tribal warfare, and you can guess the rest.
>a few minutes ago Robert Mugabe was sworn in as Chairman of the AU
Good, the AU needs a strong black leader that dont need no white man, Mugabe has years of experience running an African country and is an excellent choice for the African Union.
>People who know who they are say they're the result of white colonialism
Everytime. Absolute waste of time to even talk to these people, you can't win because their "logic" operates on a different, obviously retarded level.
Either of you have a reference of that muslim explorer's writing about the "animals" of Africa from before the rise of Europe? I know I've seen it floating around here before.
Depends if you are poor or not for most white people it's fine if you are poor though you are fucked. But the ANC treats black people like trash so I'd probably say we're better off right now there's a riot in an ANC area for service delivery, some of them have to shit in buckets.
Funny they announced recently they were going to take land away from "White" farmers, so naturally the Blacks were all in support & thought they would be getting some gibsmedats
Turns out it was Grace Mugabe taking more land for herself from Black farmers
The main difference between apartheid and the situation now in South Africa, is that with time apartheid would have slowly improved the lot of the blacks under international pressure, gradually things would have got better. Without apartheid, with its sudden end and black majority rule, all international pressure is off the government of south Africa and nobody in the world gives a shit about how bad things are for blacks living in districts which Zuma and his mates dont look-after.
They were separated and forced to live in the shitty ares while they where constantly beaten, tortured and killed for trying to speak out against there oppression. Eventually some of them resorted to terrorism and if things had gone differently we'd be like every other shit hole country in Africa.
There is black african politics in a nutshell.
Blame the whites/predecessors for all the countries ills.
mfw it still actually works as a strategy in Zimbabwe almost 40 years after Mugabe came to power.
Anyway, enjoy your democracy.
Somehow I'm now seriously doubting you're an anglo.
You're seriously siding with the horde of immigrants that moved to south africa to improve their QOL over the people that built SA?
