FPF - August 4th 2005 - He phoned early yesterday morning on a bad line from the capital Nouakchott: "Just now I can't get hold of my wife, and I don't know how long the telephone will work. Please tell her to stay in the Netherlands because a military coup just started here." he said. The fourth coup since 2003 in 100 percent Muslim Mauritania was - according to insiders - decided upon when last May the old regime under president Ould Taya banned all religious speeches and teachings in the country's mosques.
Together with findings of big oil and gas fields; the diplomatic recognition of Israel six years ago, the arrival of 'multinational vultures' and 2000 (two thousand) US troops in June 'to keep peace'; apparently were 'the last drops' that did it.
What was left of a greater group of dissident officers (earlier called the 'Knights of Change') in the Mauritanian army and security services - which has tried before to get rid of what they call the 'totalitarian regime' - now again performed a (bloodless) coup; this time while president Ould Taya was abroad at the funeral of king Fahd in Saudi Arabia.
A statement published by the Mauritanian state news agency said Col. Ely Ould Mohamed Vall (a dubious secret police chief) now was acting president of the 16 officers military council that seized power.
The alarms in Washington and Tel Aviv went off at 5 'o'clock yesterday morning; a "Red Alert' heralding the latest country now fighting the multinational's interests and occupation. More will follow: as a bloody harvest of the violence the US neocons have been sowing, and many will be killed by the people they earlier have trained to do the killing for them. Now the guns have turned around, and some chickens are coming home to roost - http://tinyurl.com/3bytm
CHANGE OF REGIME WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
The multinationals have been using the former pro-American and pro-Israel Ould Taya regime to treat the West African state of Mauritania and it's three million inhabitants like all their other 'sources of income' - and thus without any form of consideration or respect for anything called human rights or humanity. It's the oil and gas wealth of Mauritania [ http://tinyurl.com/9o89g] - which makes the coup 'unacceptable' to the inhumane so called 'New World Order', and they'll start to kill and destroy. How important the country and this part of the world is in the global reconfiguring of the US multinational's energy needs, was shown during the NATO conference in Nouakchott last October - http://tinyurl.com/8vnpb
The Mauritanians on the other hand want peace, freedom of religion and the ownership of the natural resources of Mauritania which - like in most countries - is siphoned of for the wealth of the neocons and their multinationals.
OVERWHELMING MEDIA PROPAGANDA
Looking at the immediate action undertaken by the american forces and their many international and local collaborators in Africa, Mauritania will soon further be plagued by the fake US/Israeli 'War of Terror', resulting in the growing of the guerilla resistance in the North African and Sahel States too. (see map - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/aptnb) too. Maybe even the by the CIA paid and US trained but now non-existent 'Hollywood product Osama bin Laden' will state something again on one of Rumsfeld's lying 'Ministry of Truth' web sites.
Or the other US neocon-made 'Pimpernel' - al Zarqawi - will be blamed for some murderous attacks, rapes or bombings, which many times as 'False Flag' operations [ http://tinyurl.com/ch7ka ] will be executed by the neocon's MI6, the Mossad experts and/or their own 'Special Forces'...
The American/Israeli rape of Africa and it's oil fields is a fact: the scandalous smokescreen of music for all goodwilling people by Blair, Bush, Brown, Bob Geldof and his ilk was a shame - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/chjdf
The US in the past years has enormously expanded it's military presence in Africa. Under the cover of the US neocon made 'War on Terror' the US military with the illegal help of murderous 'Jackals'* - assisting the global banks* and their multinationals - have abandoned a lot of military bases in Europe and Asia, and relocated them to 'protect' nearly all oil and natural gas resources in Africa.
KILLING AND DRILLING FOR PROFIT
With the cover of the UN for instance - the Chinese, which now were not allowed to buy US Unocal in tactical revenge, have been forced to - for the most - leave the oil rich Darfur region in Sudan, for years their oil base in Africa. So called 'Royal' Dutch SHELL already for decades has been 'killing and drilling' for profit: in Africa their main victim is oil-rich Nigeria where they 'helped' exterminating the Ogoni people and hang famous writer and poet Ken Saro Wiwa and some of his people - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/aekkc. -
The US 'Robber Barons' for the past years have focused on Uganda, Djibouti, Senegal and Sao Tomé y Principe, where heavily armed but flexible, small scale 'jumping off points' exist and more are built for the 'oil protecting' US 'Rapid Deployment Forces'. The small archipelago of Sao Tomé y Principe is strategically placed in the oil rich Gulf of Guinea, sub-Saharan Africa's major oil producing area - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/b77mj
The US Navy and Air Force, and collaborating states with warships, even submarines and reconnaissance air planes - like from the British & Dutch Navy - are squandering billions of the taxpayers money to surround Africa and occupy the coastal waters: 'to protect it against Terror'. In realspeak meaning: protecting the interests of the criminal multinational Shylocks in Africa.
'COVERED' BY THE PROPAGANDA MEDIA'S FAKE STORIES ABOUT 'TERRORISM'
To get back Mauritania in the neocon's profitable fold, and first to be expected, is the gathering of American/Israeli forces in the coastal waters and in the countries surrounding Mauritania, where neighboring and collaborating US-allies Niger and Morocco will play a decisive role. The small airport of Atar in central Mauritania may be used for the attack, which is bad, because I have friends living there too.
Meanwhile we can expect a lot of fake stories about 'terrorism' and other atrocities in the area, many times staged by the US/Israeli 'Special Forces' and resulting in the lies spread as 'news' by the followers of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels in the usual neocon mainstream media. Especially the deceptive international propaganda megaphones one should never believe: like AP, UPI, AFP, Bloomberg, Reuters ANP, BBC, CNN, FOX etc. etc. which will 'link' the new military rulers to 'al Qaida'.
Absolutely NONE of the mainstream 'information' sources can be trusted. NONE whatsoever!
In the Arab world - apart from Jordan and Egypt - Mauritania was the third country which under US neocon pressure opened up diplomatic ties with Israel, ('Holocausting' the Palestinians doesn't matter?) - a deed unheard of in real muslim states with which the 100% Muslim population didn't agree. According to the Israeli information paper Ha'aretz, in a comment on the coup in 2003: 'recognizing Israel as a state by Ould Taya was one of the main reasons for the coup.' - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/7kcl6
Ominous, and foreboding another American/Israeli holocaust of this country too, was the declaration yesterday by the US State Department, condemning the coup, interfering with the internal affairs and asking for a "peaceful return for order under the constitution and the established government of President Tai'a,"
To this blunt statement, made by US State Department spokesman Tom Casey, Washington added ''that the US would continue to deal with the old President, and sees no need for further Constitutional action.”
One must conclude that 'unconstitutional action' should be feared.
In Mauritania many opposition figures were arrested by former president Ould Taya's troops, a move he explained by pointing at received US intelligence ''that al-Qaida was recruiting and training Mauritanians to fight in Iraq.'' Which of course is absolute drivel and untrue, but the same dirty excuse as is used by oppressive dictators in all US supported neocon 'colonies'.
The 'International Crisis Group' -[ http://tinyurl.com/8l7o6 ] - said in a report before the coup took place "that Mauritania's attempts to stifle opposition groups by denouncing them as terrorists risked backfiring. Mauritanian police have arrested scores of Islamic opposition leaders and activists since last month, accusing them of colluding with the Algerian-based Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC). They also accuse Islamist movements of plotting to destabilize the Mauritanian government."
The 'plot' indeed replaced collaborating US 'stooge' and 'president' Ould Taya, who is not allowed back into the country, and now is the 'front man' for the coming US/Israeli attacks "to liberate Mauritania from this junta" - plans which are discussed at NSA/CIA Headquarters in Langley and Washington, and in Mauritania's neighboring countries Niger and Morrocco.
So when the policy statement by the coup makers in the capital Nouakchott was read on state TV when it went on air again late in the afternoon - and it started with: "In the name of Allah, the Merciful and Compassionate", the 'destabilization' of this source of income and control was a fact, as far as Washington was concerned, and now the whole ton of bricks will - as usual - come down on the head of the innocent people defending their human rights, but standing in the way of profits for others, if no compromise is found.
The spreading guerilla war had started already a long time ago, with among others the Algerian well trained GIA group fighting the 'foreign multinational infidels' too. One wonders whether Bush had any clue or faint idea whatsoever - when he bragged and smirked: 'Bring'm on!' - that it would be so many millions of people, in so many countries who'd accept his invitation to war?
Also in Africa they know that it's spelled the wrong way, this expression 'New World Order':
IT SHOULD BE NEW WORLD MURDER...
