Herero and Namaqua Fake-O-Cide (Part 1)


Let’s face it, war is not a pretty spectacle, no matter from what angle one looks at it!  There is, however, a mistaken belief in the delusional minds of modern-day man that war has one basic rule, and that is – to exterminate the enemy at all cost! I will not argue the fact that some wars were possibly fought in that manner, but believe it (or not) - way back in the bad ol’ days, about 100 years ago, the Laws of War actually prohibited the haphazard extermination of people.


Prussian military general and theoretician Carl Von Clausewitz (1780 – 1831), defined war as follows:

"War is thus an act of force to compel our enemy to do our will."

I personally find this definition quite acceptable, because it explains why the entire world has been under a fog of war - 24/7 – since the beginning of time!

Today, in our modern times, sophisticated propaganda techniques, employed by the main stream media (msm) - skillfully controlled by the International Judaic, is basically doing the same job guns and bullets did back in the old days – the only difference is that their warfare does not scare the hell out of most people anymore, and cunningly confuses the issue of who the real enemy is.

Etymology of the word “War”

From late Old English (c.1050), wyrre, werre, from Old North French werre "war" (Fr. guerre), from Frankish *werra, from Proto-Germanic *werso (Compare with Old Saxon werran, Old high German werran, German verwirren "to confuse, perplex.") Cognates suggest the original sense was "to bring into confusion." - Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War

The Warfare of ‘Confusion’

If you type the words, “Herero German War” into Google’s search bar, you will find numerous topics related to the “Herero and Namaqua Genocide” listed in the top rankings. The terms “Genocide” or “Holocaust” will also feature prominently in the top rankings. It's all part-and-parcel of the warfare of confusion!

Inspiration for this article came about when I searched Amazon.co.uk using the term, “Genocide in Africa”. Listed on number 10 of the search results I found the book - The Kaiser's Holocaust: Germany's Forgotten Genocide and the Colonial Roots of Nazism by Casper Erichsen and David Olusoga. I also noticed that the paperback version was only due for release on 4 Aug 2011. From there I proceeded to read the book’s description as well as several reviews of the book….

The Book’s Description…

The unknown story of the genocide of the Herero and Nama peoples in Germany’s forgotten African Empire – an atrocity that foreshadowed the Nazi genocides forty years later. (The Kaiser's Holocaust: Germany's Forgotten Genocide and the Colonial Roots of Nazism)

A link to the full product description, on Amazon.co.uk reads as follows:
(My own comments appear in brackets, in bold red)

On 12 May 1883, the German flag was raised on the coast of South-West Africa, modern Namibia – the beginnings of Germany’s African Empire. As colonial forces moved in, their ruthless punitive raids became an open war of extermination. (bullshit) Thousands of the indigenous people were killed or driven out into the desert to die. (bullshit) By 1905, the survivors were interned in concentration camps, and systematically starved and worked to death. (bullshit) Years later, the people and ideas that drove the ethnic cleansing of German South West Africa would influence the formation of the Nazi party. (bullshit) The Kaiser’s Holocaust uncovers extraordinary links between the two regimes: their ideologies, personnel, even symbols and uniform. The Herero and Nama genocide was deliberately concealed for almost a century. (bullshit) Today, as the graves of the victims are uncovered, its re-emergence challenges the belief that Nazism was an aberration in European history. The Kaiser’s Holocaust passionately narrates this harrowing story and explores one of the defining episodes of the twentieth century from a new angle. Moving, powerful and unforgettable, it is a story that needs to be told.... (... because warfare is confusion, that’s why!).

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
