Yeah, admire a nation that treats their women like crap and thinks nothing of taking others' lives.

Makes no sense.

By the way Assya, there's planes that leave here every day that head to the muslim sand lands so you could be there in a few hours to join your brothers in arms and blow up buildings and do suicide bombings. Just go blow up your muslim friends when you do. >8-)

Defender of the Olympic Games: Russian Police Kill four Muslim Terrorists
Olympics 2014: Terror in Sochi Russia

Putin kills them, Obama appoints them to DHS.

There were two Islamic terror attacks right before the games in Volgograd, followed by counter-terror probes and ops, one that led to the death of seven Muslim supremacists. One of the Muslim bus bombers in Russia said,“Leave orphans.” Despite this, the media reassures us that there is “no indication the shooting was connected with the Olympic Games.” It’s not that the media isn’t credible; it’s that they aren’t normal.

”Russian police kill four Islamist militants in North Caucasus,” Reuters, February 10, 2014

(Reuters)– Russian police killed four suspected militants, law enforcement officials said on Monday, in a shootout at a house in the North Caucasus, highlighting regional security concerns near the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

The gun fight broke out on Saturday after police surrounded a private house used by militants in the province of Dagestan, which lies some 600 kilometers (380 miles) from Sochi on the other end of the Caucasus Mountain chain.

There was no indication the shooting was connected with the Games.

President Vladimir Putin, who has invested personal and political prestige to ensure the Games’ success, ordered security forces on high alert after a suicide bomber killed at least 37 in the southern Russian city of Volgograd in December.

Militants wage violence to establish an Islamist state in the predominantly Muslim North Caucasus. Militant leader Doku Umarov, Russia’s most wanted man, threatened to disrupt the Olympic Games in a video posted online last year.

Russian newspaper Kommersant said among those killed was an ethnic Russian convert to the insurgency.

Security experts say the use of ethnic Russians in the insurgency shows the militants’ increasing reach and a strategy that could help them avoid detection in heavily policed areas like Sochi.

Russia says the Games are as safe from militant attacks as anywhere in the West and Russian security services are working with colleagues form Europe and North America.

Russia’s Islamist insurgency in the North Caucasus, which stretches from Dagestan on the Caspian Sea to near Sochi’s coast on the Black Sea, is rooted in two wars between Russian forces and Chechen separatists in 1994-6 and 1999-2000.

Dagestan has become the focal point of the violence."

You seem versed in the history of the Central African Federation. Tell us about Black disenfranchisement in Southern Rhodesia (Rhodesia); tell us about the history from the time Rhodes 'discovered' the land and it's people to the time Ian Smith declared UDI. Tell us about Mugabe and the war of liberation. Even if you just give us your perspective that would be ok. Tell us, we will filter it.
I know a little about what went on that's all. I was brought up in Zambia and was there when the country got its independence, I went to live in South Africa for a couple of years and visit often because I have family there. there has been many changes some not for the better. but it is to be expected in a country fighting with its past. Only time will tell if this style of government will work, but it is a hundred times better than the old one. the world is gripped in prejudice, black against white, muslim against christian, muslim against muslim, homophobia. rich against poor, one tribe against another the list is endless, and to some degree all this is crystallized in Africa. Governments call it growing pains, but it seems to me it is always the innocent who are hurt. Cults like the Nation of islam as far as I can see, are not the answer but part of the problem, how can any one be prejudiced over a persons skin colour? were any of us given the choice of what colour we are? so how can you point the finger at some one over something they have no control?
We all have prejudices, things which we do not agree with or traits we find offensive even abhorrent, the question is, how far will you go to inculcate your ideas on others?

'Nonetheless, its bizarre theology of innate black superiority over whites — a belief system vehemently and consistently rejected by mainstream Muslims — and the deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-gay rhetoric of its leaders, including top minister Louis Farrakhan, have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate.'
