Stop the Deaths by Stopping the Thefts

Rarely has the word “war crime” been used in the context of the EU response to the refugee crisis. The mess that is EU foreign policy continues to make headlines across the globe. This especially as far as the issue of illegal immigrants are concerned. Where is the shame? EU bankers and land-grabbers should not be allowed to escape the blame for the ‘mass murder’ of these innocents. It must be clear that the reason why thousands of immigrants are perishing in the Mediterranean is because of a racist policy that does not consider non-Europeans as people.

For sure, we have some international civic organizations trying to fight the scourge of corruption on the continent and worldwide like Transparency International and Global Witness. But what can they do if the governments of Europe and elsewhere in the developed world are willing to fold their hands while African politicians rape their countries in front of their eyes. EU governments cannot pretend not know about this, they collect taxes and other benefits accruing from these vampire outfits. The EU are content to wine and dine with these robbing dictators. What does that make them in the face of the current immigration tragedy? Accomplices, that is what. We are informed that close on 10 000 people have perished in one year on the perilous journey to Europe. Now the EU is failing to wash its hands clean of this sick tragedy authored in Brussels. And with good reason too. Elsewhere on the continent in South Africa, thousands have been displaced and murdered in so-called xenophobic attacks. These innocent folk like their dead Mediterranean counterparts would be really happy at home but where is home when their presidents stole every home from them to bank same in Europe? Most African presidents are thieves, this is common knowledge. What is baffling is why is the EU looking the other way while the continent’s resources are being invested in their ‘squeaky clean’ banks. Why do they now pretend to shed crocodile tears over the mass murder of the immigrants in the Mediterranean when it is their people who are dipping into the coffers of the African people? What does this make those who cash in on this and watch gleefully while the continent’s children are being murdered by their EU bankers and investors? Why are we not seeing the same energy used to fight terrorism worldwide being employed to trace, expose and cease all the proceeds from corruption? 

Banks in the past such as the Libor interest frauds yet where are the punishments for assisting in funds being stolen from poor Africans. There would be no incentive for the presidents to steal as they will have nowhere to deposit their ill-gotten loot. Let us see the international media use the same energy it uses in exposing terrorism do the same on these banksters.
