Belgian MP makes stand against war in Mali

Belgian MP Laurent Louis stands against war in Mali and exposes the international neo-colonial plot

by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

Recently the Belgian MP Laurent Louis made the following statement in the Belgian parliament where he took a concerted stand against the war in Mali and the involvement of the Belgian government it this.

Below is a transcript of some of what he said in his speech:

"It is false, under the appearance of good actions. We only intervene to defend financial interests in a complete neo-colonialist mindset. It is nonsense to go help France in Mali in the name of the fight against Islamic terrorism when the same time, we support them in Syria including the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad by Islamist rebels who want to impose Sharia Law, as was done in Tunisia and in Libya.

It's about time to stop lying to us and treating us like imbeciles. The time has come to tell the truth. Arming the Islamist rebels, as westerners have, in the past like Bin Laden, a friend of the Americans before they turned against him, well, the Western countries are taking the opportunity to place military bases in the newly conquered countries while favoring domestic companies.
Everything is therefore strategic.

In Iraq, our American Allies have put their hands on the country's oil wealth. In Afghanistan, it was its opium and drugs, always useful when it comes to make lots of money quickly.

In Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and again in Syria, the aim was and is still today to overthrow moderate powers to replace them by Islamist powers who very quickly will become troublesome and that we will shamelessly attack, pretending once again, to fight terrorism or protect Israel.

Thus, the next targets are already known. Within a few months, I bet our eyes will turn to Algeria and then Iran.

To go to war, to free people from an outside aggressor, is noble, But to go to war to defend the interests of the USA. To go to war to defend the interests of big companies such as ARIVA, to go to war to put our hands on GOLD MINES, has nothing noble at all."

It is rather refreshing when a politician actually says such things and thus tries to enlighten the people to what is going on, at least those that have not, as yet, woken up to the fact.

What Belgian MP Laurent Louis said is, unfortunately, very true indeed and the West, especially the US and the UK, has a tendency to back the wrong horse, which then turns to bite us in the proverbial.

It was done with Idi Amin, with Robert Mugabe, with Col. Gaddafi, with Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, and is now being done with the Islamists, Salafists often, in the Arab countries where uprisings have happened or are happening.

What Mr. Laurent Louis forgot to mention as regards to Mali is that “thar is gold in them thar hills”. Well the are not so much hills but there is gold, lots of it, and rare earths and minerals and that is the very reason that the West is, interfering.
