Rich Men in London Still Deciding Africa’s Future

http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/03/24/rich-men-in-london-still-deciding-africas-future/

Some £600 million in UK aid money courtesy of the taxpayer is helping big business increase its profits in Africa via the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. In return for receiving aid money and corporate investment, African countries have to change their laws, making it easier for corporations to acquire farmland, control seed supplies and export produce.

Last year, Director of the Global Justice Now Nick Dearden said:

“It’s scandalous that UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business. This is the exact opposite of what is needed, which is support to small-scale farmers and fairer distribution of land and resources to give African countries more control over their food systems. Africa can produce enough food to feed its people. The problem is that our food system is geared to the luxury tastes of the richest, not the needs of ordinary people. Here the British government is using aid money to make the problem even worse.”

Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Nigeria, Benin, Malawi and Senegal are all involved in the New Alliance

To see this in action, we need look no further to a conference held on Monday 23 March in London, organised by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This secretive, invitation-only meeting with aid donors and big seed companies discussed a strategy to make it easier for these companies to sell patented seeds in Africa and thus increase corporate control of seeds

Note: Ethiopian statists are currently stealing Oromo land, Burkina Faso has French and US military fighting the terrorist bogeyman al-whatever-we-want-to-call-it, Nigeria has Bogus Haram.
I am contemptous of these “terror” groups as their actions progress statist/pirate interests! Furthermore with the outsourcing of murder by the Statists and corporate pirates to mercenaries it requires little imagination to envision convenient acts of terror.
This is the context within which to view the “humanitarian” Ebola and vaccinations projects ongoing in Africa. You are free to believe that the monopolistic psychotic corporate pirates and their statists legal covermen care for humanity.

Are mercenaries modern pirates?

It occurred to me that the false terror groups – ISIS, Al Queda, Boko Haram – tend to use a white circle against a black background, not to dissimilar to a the skull and bones flags of pirates. Boys clubs like the Skull and Bones retain the symbols of piracy which suggests one of several things:
1) a worship of piracy, akin to gangsta hip-hop stars using the names of notorious drug dealers or mafia bosses
2) an aspirational goal for amoral material success and recognition
3) a historical recognition of the incorporation of piracy and its wealth into the fabric of western society

As far back as the 16th century, we see piracy was encouraged by the Elizabeth I to weaken her then enemy the Spanish. George Bush Snr (ex CIA) and his son, Bush jnr a bonesman would be modern day pirates and are amongst the few known public faces. So what links the piracy of old with modern piracy? The corporation, as exemplified by the East India company.
Elizabeth I gave the East India Company a royal charter to trade, however it soon had its own armies and which dominated and ruled large parts of India. The corporation, the insatiable, psychopathic legal entity animated by human beings held captive by their belief in its omnipotence.

The corporation is an impotent and lifeless piece of paper, if it were not for living human souls working to manifest the singular “vision” of its CEO and shareholders. In this light shareholders are funders of the fleet of pirates. What will be their particular kind of looting? Banking, pharma, biotech, mining, oil, fighting (PMCs)?

The private military contractor is the enforcer of our modern pirate, the outsourced muscle. CEO Pirates of the Corporation of the United States, Bush Snr, Bush Jnr, Clinton and now Obama have now seen fit to release their frontline corp of pirates from the confines of any pretense of legality or social mores. It was evident in Iraq and we see its mark in Ukraine. Ukraine has exposed how PMC can profit from fostering a conflict, waging the conflict and also act as peace-keepers.
Executive Outcomes, Blackwater, Xe, we can see the trajectory. Create the failed state and then exploit its resources. The false terror groups also fit nicely into this, would Mali and Libya not be evidence of this?

The intelligence services are about maintaining the piracy under “national interests”. The victims in Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Mali, Ukraine, Venezuela can see the looting and robbing. The intelligence collection agencies you would have thought would subvert these obvious acts of piracy but actually fabricate the evidence in support if none existed.
NSA spying, PMC, torture, rendition, militarized police, “too big to fail”, TTIP, TPP unrelenting assaults on humanity.
To answer my question: Are mercenaries modern pirates? Yes but they are just the henchmen, the pirate masterminds are in board rooms. Without nation states at least turning a blind eye to the activities of PMCs, they would wither away.
This leads to another thought: Piracy central has to be the City of London, so Elizabeth II as a member of Knights of Malta, you are at least guilty of global piracy by association.

Published on Feb 19, 2015
Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the new Blackwater world order in which corporations employ and deploy mercenaries to enforce their extrajudicial TTIP ‘rights’ over sovereign nations of non-corporate person-peasants. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Mitch Feierstein of Planet Ponzi.com about the Carney effect on the Canadian dollar and the velocity of money. Mitch also has a chart, the most important chart the audience will ever see and that is the gold price chart.
