I hope, my dear visitors, you will permit me to revisit this issue even though it may appear self-congratulatory. I do not do so in triumphalist vanity, but to illustrate a point.
When the horrors were occurring in Rwanda, I made myself quite unpopular in certain circles by suggesting that the slaughter had the backing of the US. I had gone much too far even for my leftist friends, I was much too cynical. How could I believe that!
Well it began with a very mysterious plane crash, one which benefited the Hutus profoundly. And if these events were inimical to the interests of international capital the US or UN would have put a stop to them. Then the clincher--the intense media campaign on behalf of Paul Kagame, including cameos on 60 Minutes and many other official news media. A look at his background revealed he had trained here in the US, and that his forces were involved in securing valuable resources for Western capital. Hence I concluded that he was working for the Pentagon, and that the genocide and Kagame's subsequent intervention were the unfolding of a plan concocted by capital.
Well this was just too foul for many to believe, and I was called a "perverse" conspiracy theorist.
There is no longer any doubt that I was right. I mention this only to highlight that there is no depth to which the ruling class will not sink to protect their wealth and privilege; that the worst filth on the planet run the planet; and that one shouldn't be too dismissive of even the most horrifying theories. There is nothing new under the sun.
