New film – that I have not watched – on the horrors of war in Africa. What is anyone in the West doing to save these people from the horrors of war? Basically nothing. When war breaks out, Westerners leave the locals to experience hell. And that after several Westerner governments have furnished billions in arms for the mass killings along with all the secret “services” for the de-stabilization required for implanting the puppet regimes to rob African people of their resources.
Is this a world that calls itself sane? Civilized? We are awash in evil.
Here is a review of “Beasts of No Nation” – excerpt from http://sfbayview.com/2015/11/beasts-of-no-nation/
“Beasts of No Nation” is a well financed Netflix film that crudely exposes the face of the wars in Africa and the false poverty that has been created by U.S. and other Western imperialist governments spearheading a corporate plan to rob the richest continent on earth of its natural resources.
It is the tale of a little boy in an unnamed African country. The boy, played by Abraham Attah, is orphaned when he is left with his father in the war zone after his mother and young siblings flee. The boy’s father becomes a casualty of the war.
A short while after he was orphaned, a rebel guerrilla army led by the character played by Idris Elba stumbles upon him in the bush. The unromanticized brutality of war is captured in the many battles fought by the very brave but misled child and youth soldiers. The film deals boldly with the psychological aspects of brainwashing and propaganda in war.
“Beasts of No Nation” is based on a novel by Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala. I did not read the book so I cannot compare the two.
I don’t know whether to be more upset at Idris Elba, who accepted the role of a homosexual pedophile raping his own soldiers for imperialism or myself for thinking that Idris Elba might use the platform to say something about the world order that has crushed over 6 million people in the Congo in ordeals like the one depicted in the film so that Apple, Microsoft, Dell and the rest of the computer industry can steal coltan and other minerals at the cheapest price possible utilizing proxy armies and governments from nations like Uganda, Rwanda and rebel forces in the Congo to do it.
This is the only review I saw that mentioned this: “homosexual pedophile raping his own soldiers”. Finally someone breaking the silence regarding homosexual pedophilia? I suppose we will have to wait for more reviews for the answer.
And after reading this unpalatable review of the novel at the “LA review of books”, this is the comment I left:
Nothing more disgusting than a vile American sitting comfortably in his armchair writing in the most detached fashion about the “child soldier genre” while his country has fueled and armed many of these wars and created the hell that these people have had to go through. The most the author can think of saying about it all is that the “child soldier genre is now passé”.
