#2 An African conflict to at long last correct the ills of white colonial rule is Barry's next big goal. Watch it happen.

#3 No comment on 20,000 plus Matabeles slukked by Mugabe's NkKor 5th Brigade, hey, Bazza?

Didn't think so. So who really cares, if it ain't for Politics?

#5 Zimbob and Zuma are Barry's pals. Birds of a feather. There will be no mention of the Matabeles or any of the other atrocities meted
out by the ANC over the past 30 years.

#6 For the Pig Ignorant, the New Rhodesia Forum may enlighten re American Politics, and I certainly can't say I am grateful. May what happened to us, happen to you, and I do think you have it coming, I wish it weren't so.

#7 Rather harsh words I'd say from perfidious Albion, land of Labor and the original betrayors of World War II hero and gifted stateman Ian Smith. Remind me to visit a British cemetery of war dead here in the States will you?

#8 Harsh, I was not meant to be, Besoeker, china. This old Albion had its arm twisted like a good one, Carter, Vorster, Carrington, and I bet that doers Kissinger had something to say, old history.

All I say is, ignoring the Terrorist war, and then actually supporting them, maybe History repeats itself for the Self-interest of those Mo-fos who gain the most. Just trying to point you guys in the right direction. I have been there, lost a country; I don't call myself a refugee. I dont have war graves I can visit either, so there is no past for me.

What I am saying is, what happened to us, will happen to you guys, I believe we had one of the first Terrorist Wars, and the Free World(?) stood down in the first instance of the PC World.

All the dead on the Roll of Honour of Rhodesia come down to nothing for you guys, like it means nothing. Import your Somali refugees, they are surely worth less than a bucket of sh*t by the Metric Tonne and probably more dangerous than their weight in fertiliser.

Lighten up.

Would you be terribly offended if I told you to "Fuck Off"?

I'm quite aware of Rhodesia's history, RF, as well as that of the other African hell-holes. It's not like I've never been there (especially since someone tried to recruit me while I was in Kenya).

Do me a favor - when you next speak to me, or about me, do it sober.

By that you must mean that minority blacks rule over the US while keeping majority whites from voting.

Nah, that can't be it.

Maybe majority whites rule over minority blacks while keeping blacks from voting.

That ain't it either.

What was the problem, again?

Oh yeah. White minority rule while keeping an overwhelming majority of blacks from voting. That's ain't happening here, RF, no matter how fervently you wish it so.

And for all the bulsh*t we hear from our liberals here, it is majority politics under a republican system which protects/guarantees minority basic rights, the includes entities which can't vote such as the wealthy, businesses small and large. Both elements, BTW, critical to wealth creation and economic prosperity for ALL.

You're lamenting the failure of an oppressive regime, something which were it to happen here ( one majority violating the right of any minority ) I would expect to support its dissolution or at least its opposition.

I don't agree with Pappy in many things either but I will amplify with this: Sober up and get your facts straight before browbeating us over the political change in Africa.

#11 I stand corrected, Rhodesia was a Hell-hole in Africa, some guy who was in Kenya said it was so. If you want to pull cheap shots, you maybe want to fuck off yourself.

#12 Rhodesia was a Hell-hole in Africa

It was:

1) while everyone else in the world stood aside and let the communists run rampant and

2) When ZANU-PF took over.

And I said "someone tried to recruit me while I was in Kenya"; doesn't mean I've not been elsewhere in Africa.

Like I said, sober up before you talk to me again.

#14 Last thoughts, you might want to brush up on your African history, maybe check up on whats been happening the last 30 years or so.
Sheesh, talk about shooting the messenger, you are way too sensitive for your own good.

You're right. I watch the TV and I see all those poor starving children of African and I turn to my wife and I tell her:

"I can't stand to see such misery.

Can we switch off the TV now?"

#16 I think you wilfully miss the point, badanov. The point is that it was American politicians that sold us down the river, and they are going to do the same to you, if they haven't done so already. I would advise a stiff drink to make this news palatable, B-)

Otherwise take it off list.

Yes, civil and well-reasoned, Rhodesiafever. Pappy could have attacked you in the best tradition of senior NCOs and mid-level officers in the Navy and Marines, which he has the experience to do. And this after you baited him openly enough that even I recognized what you were doing.

I'm quite sure you're right that the U.S., along the rest of the civilized world let the Whites be driven from Rhodesia by the Blacks and the their Soviet enablers, just as they subsequently did to South Africa, and as they are gearing up to do to Israel.

Nonetheless, what took place in this thread is indeed well-reasoned discourse, and fairly civil under the circumstances. Perhaps if you hadn't started "for the weak of mind, aka Pappy," you would not have gotten a response you didn't like.
