Buy an African baby; bomb some African villages

ASMARA, Eritrea — Did anyone ask movie star Angelina Jolie how much she paid for the Ethiopian baby she adopted? Or should I say how much she “donated,” most of which ended up in the hands of the national crime syndicate known as the Government of Ethiopia.
Just about anyone can buy a baby in Ethiopia these days, you know what I mean, “adopt”? It costs about $30,000. Cash. Some reports say over 3,000 were sold . . . adopted, last year alone.
It has turned into a major cash flow for the Godfathers of the Ethiopian “government.” Do the math, 3,000 times $30,000, in one year, and another London bank account or three is going to have to be set up to be stuffed chock full of some very sick money.
When you buy . . . adopt, a baby in Ethiopia there is a good chance that the baby isn’t an orphan, though it is usually standard language in all the sale/adoption papers that such is the case. With millions of Ethiopians famine stricken, selling babies has become a way to survive for some. Though of the $30,000 as little as $1,000 makes it through the hands of the Ethiopian mafia to the babies’ families.
If one has been reading the pages of this and other websites willing to publish what is really going on in Ethiopia, you will know that Ethiopia is committing genocide against the ethnic Somalis in the Ethiopian Ogaden. So why should selling babies come as a shock?
Angelina Jolie should come clean and tell us what she really “donated” to get her little Ethiopian girl. Somehow though I won’t hold my breath for Ms. Jolie just called for the USA to declare war and invade Sudan. Buy an African baby and then bomb some African villages, it just gets to be Hollyweird, doesn’t it?
The UN is even weirder though, with Ethiopia committing genocide in the Ogaden, the Security Council finally acted, passing sanctions against . . . next-door neighbor Eritrea.
The saying goes here in this part of Africa, “All roads to peace in the Horn of Africa run through Asmara [Eritrea] . . .” and there is one thing the USA and especially Hollywood is dead set against and that is peace breaking out in Africa.
With the UN there to enforce the Law of the Jungle, only the strong survive. And survivors, especially those that won’t kneel down at the masters feet, have to be made examples of. Or at least it has to look that way, and sanctions against Eritrea it must be. So buy a baby in Ethiopia and support genocide. And don’t forget to declare war and start bombing Sudan.
In the meantime, get busy and start enforcing the sanctions against Eritrea. Either that or better yet, make sure no one even hears about all of this, business as usual, you know, with none the wiser.
Stay tuned to Online Journal for more news from the Horn of Africa that the so-called Free Press in the West won’t touch.

In late April I was among the 25 Vermonters who occupied Congressman Bernie Sanders’ Burlington office to protest his support of the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia and the ongoing war against Iraq. Calling ourselves the “Instant Antiwar Action Group,” we decided to bring our outrage at Bernie’s escalating hypocrisy directly to his office, an action that resultedin 15 of us being arrested for trespass.
Many of us worked on Bernie’s campaigns through 1980’s, the years he was–as the local press repeatedly put it– the “avowed socialist” Mayor of Burlington, Vermont. His descent into de facto membership the Democratic party has been a major setback for the task of building a real electoral alternative to the two factions of the corporate property that monopolize what passes for political choice in the United States. Bernie’s selling out says clearly to working people and those unable to find work that even leftists become mainstream politicians, when and if they win office.
Sanders presented himself to the left outside of Vermont as the leader of the third party movement, vanquishing the two major parties in every Mayoral election from 1981-88.
When he first got elected Mayor of Burlington he was the only elected U.S. official to attend the anniversary of the Sandinista Revolution in Managua. The Gannett owned Burlington Free Press said he had to be removed from office “by any means necessary.” Now that same Burlington Free Press endorses his Congressional candidacy.
Bernie became an imperialist to get elected in 1990. In August, 1990–after the Bush administration enticed Iraq into invading Kuwait–Sanders said he wasn’t “going to let some damn war cost him the election,” according to a staff member who was present at the time. So Sanders backed the buildup in the Persian Gulf and dumped on the left anti-imperialist peace movement, singling out his former allies like Dave Dellinger for public criticism. … continue
