Enough with KONY 2012

Post by NOT MONGO on Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:30 pm

Sick of the Kony facebook posts! All people are doing is showing their historical and geopolitical ignorance. There is a child sex trade one million times more massive in SE Asia, slavery in the Middle East, and dictators more murderous all throughout history. Maybe if some people opened a book once in a while and didn't count on Facebook for their global news updates they would have known. The makers of that film are probably rolling in dough right now as they take 90 cents off the top of every dollar donated. You want to talk donations? How about the billions of dollars that Europe (some of Americas biggest allies) "donate" to Africa. These "donations" help keep dictators in power so that borders of African nations can remain closed and Europe can avoid immigration problems. Do you really think that your government will turn its back on its biggest military and economic allies to help the poor people of Africa? Didnt think so.

Even with all the updates I still have no idea what is going on.

The guy had a meltdown.

I somewhat agree that Kony is actually a very small role in some very big problems in Africa which are for the most part largely ignored by everyone but the ICC and others who can't really do much about it. Rwanda and the Congo are perpetually in a state of civil war(s) between and inside of each other and themselves because of people like Bosco Ntaganda. Congo is also one of the deadliest places for women; an average of 1,100 new incidents of rape are reported each month. It's been found that more than that number of Congolese women are brutally raped every day because of people like Bosco Ntaganda and the entire national armies in these places. On top of exploiting children as soldiers, widespread pillaging and thievery (the armies are told to "live off the land", the majority of them never being legitimately paid for services rendered and thus becoming legalized criminals of and for the state), also constant investigations into ongoing assassinations and murders contracted out by Bosco. Nigeria is of course the African epicenter of the American internet scam, South Africa's ONLY export of note during the last century has been a band of rich art students posing as gang members whom live in poverty for Youtube videos, and of course the entire of North Africa is megafucked, basically being the de facto example of what things that have been blown to shit looks like.

In other words, it could happen.


Here.


And in a lot of ways, it does/is.

Boy, its funny you should say all these things. Last year, I was doing research on some African countries for a cultural class. There were some interesting things i discovered and now thanks to this "Kony 2012" video and its videographer's wild antics, more people are familiarizing themselves with the problems going on in Africa. I somewhat agree that Kony is actually a very small role in some very big problems in Africa which are for the most part largely ignored by everyone but the ICC and others who can't really do much about it. Rwanda and the Congo are perpetually in a state of civil war(s) between and inside of each other and themselves because of people like Bosco Ntaganda.

On a serious note, Africa is fucked, the Middle East is fucked, most of Asia is fucked or well underway. America is becoming so atomized that it isn't far from being pretty 'real' here.

These are my global forecast predictions for the upcoming few years --

America attempts to seize control over Suez Canal and other key areas and ports related to oil distribution in Iran and Pakistan. Naval and Marine forces stationed there to patrol the waters, making sure that Iran doesn't try to sink any ships purposely as this would shut down usage of the canals immediately and stop flow of Persian gas into everywhere.

America also still not happy with Iran actively persuing nuclear technology which will result in more kindling for a growing fire.

Pakistan gets hyphy over the fact that America is controlling energy that the Iranians would share with them more freely as Pakistan is suffering from energy crisis as of this date.

Israel becomes less of an American ally in the meantime as forewarned by Netanyahu in an absolutely brilliant life hack in which he gives Barack Obama the Purim Megilla scroll.

North Korea still as weird and fucking shady as ever, now that all of their Fearless Leaders are now deceased.

More Asian foreign policy at work with China becoming industrialized and about to undergo the same economic misfortune that other Capitalist nations posing as democracies or republics are dealing with now.

Energy crisis in US worsens due to complacency of damn near everyone; US still years behind Europe and Asia in transportation technology, especially and particularly train systems, something the US should have kept maintained in the first place. Government refusal to grow hemp nationwide continues as long as DuPont, Dow, Kimberly Clark and others are in operation and elections are still padded for these companies and the snakes who bed with them.

US heads for martial law and civil war with the majority of middle-to-upper-class jobs being government or law enforcement related and everyone else stuck in the same foul rut competing to stay alive having to resort to whatever it takes to do so. This of course, serves the purposes of self-inflicted population control by natural selection and also to make governmental and law enforcement jobs even less difficult but still more available as a result. Police state New World Order in full effect. Also, the Drug War will play a tremendous role in America during the next decade.

Russia re-enters the picture.

Most of Europe and the entire of Canada move even further away from the picture.

As for Africa, it's been a long time coming for America to set up a more permanent base of operations in Africa.

Oh, and by the way, as a curious side note, Iran is in the process of hoarding wheat as I type this.
