Tyrant

Watched a good documentary on TVO the other night, one of the three clear channels I get on antenna. It was about the rise of Idi Amin.
That guy was illiterate but followed the text book rules of how to become a Tyrannical dictator.
Groomed by the British for his ferocity as a soldier he quickly rose up the military ranks but would never be allowed to become an commissioned Officer.
Once the British left Uganda, Amin had some plans up his sleeve and was ruthless on how to go about them as the world watched the butchery.
His attack of Tanzania was his last hurrah. The Tanzanian's returned with a vengeance and drove Amin out. He escaped in a helicopter from the seized presidential palace.
That butcher should have been tried in court.
Instead he went on to live a long and happy life in Saudi Arabia from 1979 until 2003.

Re: Tyrant

Who made Amin? Who backed the coup that overthrew the socialist Milton Obote? Who fawned upon Amin, who carried him through the streets of Kampala on a throne? Who turned a blind eye to his outrages, until it became politically inconvenient?

Answers in one word please.

"I know, let's create this Frankenstein monster, we'll put him together from bits we dig up in the cemetary, and the brain of a hanged murderer. He'll have no education, and he will have learned, by the lash and the chain, that violence is the only way of achieving anything. Then he'll be our creation, our African boy, our whipping-dog. And so we let him loose. But then, oh my gosh, the Frankenstein monster doesn't obey our commands, it goes beserk, shock horror. BAD Frankenstein, evil! Why, WHO created this monster???"

Mobutu, remember that other African Frankenstein? Who created him?

Saddam, the West's big friend, until he wasn't. Who created him?

The Shah. Who created him?

Gadaffi. Who created him?

Need I go on?

When everyone wanted Libya's oil, and Gadaffi was Blair's best friend. Searching for oil contracts and arms deals, Blair went to meet Gadaffi, SIX TIMES, sucking up to his backside trying to get deals. Gadaffi had him sweating in the desert!

"The UK and the US quickly extended diplomatic recognition, after the coup d'etat that brought him to power, hoping to secure the position of their military bases in Libya and fearing further instability. Hoping to ingratiate themselves with Gaddafi, in 1970 the US informed him of at least one planned counter-coup."

Bullshit! It was the English who gave Amin the gun to fire the bullit. Africa is still white controlled.

Re: Tyrant

Read..."Groomed by the British...."
As NH was saying, FrankenButcher was the perfect creation, until the monster went sideways.
