Child Sacrifice

#1
I know we are all a bunch of cruel vindictive bastards but. this is quite horrifying.

The villages and farming communities that surround Uganda's capital, Kampala, are gripped by fear.

School children are closely watched by teachers and parents as they make their way home from school. In playgrounds and on the roadside are posters warning of the danger of abduction by witch doctors for the purpose of child sacrifice.
Child Sacrifice as Business

They can have my little nephew if they want, snotty little bastard.

No, in all seriousness, I thought they were targeting albinos.

I've just read this - and having spent a little bit of time in Uganda - it is truely shocking. Uganda has had such an awful post-colonial history, but things were really beginning to look up after the 2006 elections. Although I was there as an observer, I would have happily moved my family out there permanently if the right job came along (unfortunately I was out-of-synch with teh DA plot). It is a heart-achingly beautiful country. If it wasn't Amin, it was Obote, the LRA, now this horror, set against massive (Chinese) investment in supposed Great Lakes hydrocarbons.

Edited to add:

EU funds (and UK overseas aid) is linked to a transparent democratic process. I wass impressed byt eh level of political involvment in teh elections, which were as 'fair' as we could determine, and porbably just as 'fair' as elections we hold in the UK.

truly and epically****ed. The people and the continent, the Chinese will pillage the resources until they run out and then bug out and the whole of sub-Saharan Africa will wind the clock back 1000 year and descend into chaos.
I think you will find chaos is an improvement for most of Africa.

There was a report on one of the news channels last night [not sure which, i,d had a glass of wine or three]

Undercover reporter with a hidden camera posing as an oil company rep approached one of the ****ing child murdering savages about a ritual
that would supposedly bring good luck to their endeavours. The guy suggested the ritual murder of a small boy which involved decapitation
and castration. The reporter spoke to another small boy who had survived the horrors of the same ordeal although he will now spend
the rest of his life minus genetalia and with some nasty scars to the head, physical and mental.
The boy identified the guy in the secret film as one of his attackers.
The **** will probably rock up on our shores at some time in the future seeking asylum and we,ll be unable to deport him as he could
face torture or human rights violations [here,s hoping]

I don't think that this is an African problem any more than malaria is.

People have been sacrificing other people world wide almost from the point that we became 'people' and not smart monkeys.
It's still common in Africa, but paradoxically, that's probably a sign of INCREASING prosperity, rather in the same way that Rhinos and tigers are disappearing.

Common folk tradition or belief in traditional medicine give the bodies of the dead or bits of animals a psychological power. It all comes down to an ancient belief in 'Sympathetic' magic. -If I eat something that was long and hard, like rhino horn, my limp dick problem goes away. If it was a powerful predator like a lion or tiger, then if I eat it, I will be powerful... and so on.
BUT-these beasts are rare and expensive- So only the rich can indulge in them. China is now very rich, so there are more rich people driving the demand for rhino horn and tiger bone.

Human sacrifice is VERY expensive. The police ask so many questions...
So, anyone desperate enough to decide to try it must pay very well indeed- You need a 'disposable' body, a 'witchdoctor' willing and able to do the job (And keep his mouth shut) You need to find someone to dispose of the left overs...You need to bribe the local coppers when the bits are inevitably discovered...and so on.

Truly dirt poor people don't sacrifice anything-because they can't afford to waste anything. On occasion a village might make a public sacrifice to the Gods, but secretive Human sacrifice says that there are enough greedy and wealthy people willing to try magical shortcuts to get more.

..And if you think that we are immune, nip down to Waterstones and look at the New Age section. There's enough irrational crazies over here that would do exactly the same, if they thought they would get away with it.

Good post Hector - especially the last paragraph.

This does sicken me to the point where I can't think about it. Africa is not the only place were children are treated this abominably, I recall a child kidnapped and hanged in Basra by the Garamshas - still makes me angry today to think about what a four year old goes through as some animal puts a noose around her neck?

What does worry me is that some of these people are here thanks to a deliberate policy by the Labour party and as Steven posted - it has happened here. I really admire the coppers that have to deal with this sort of thing.

Are you talking about Green party members?

From Stevens link

"A few weeks ago the Met put out a number of 300 black children missing from schools.

then this

But Dr William Les Henry, a lecturer in sociology at Goldsmith's College, said there was an element of racism about the report.

He said: "The model that they're based on, they always seem to base their models on the fact that Africans are less civilized, less rational, so their whole systems of rationality are irrational."


FFS !!!

The following link has some nasty stuff in it and is outwardly racist so definately NSFW. Blogger looks like a bit of a nutter, but the stories are from the mainstream press - the cartoons may be offensive to some people


Then this cannibal Human flesh apparently being sold in London

Some quotes:-

The true figure for missing boys and girls is feared to be several thousand a year - in London

A Met spokesman said: "We undertook a project aimed at improving our knowledge of issues impacting child abuse within the African and Asian communities of London. The aim of the project was to open a dialogue within these communities and encourage a debate which would help reduce the risks of harm to children."


A word to the Met -you can't "open dialogue" with people that think wearing other peoples tongues around their neck will make their c*ck bigger!!

These are the very same people that believe sex with a baby will cure AIDS! Well....strictly speaking it's a virgin, but they choose babies to 'be on the safe side'!!

Probably not. I believe the magic normally only works if you eat the sacrifice. Since most Greenies are vegan tofu eaters, they probably won't go for anything beyond the vicious sacrifice of a parsnip.

Irrational, but not carnivores!

Possibly they will. Greenies don't eat meat because it comes from other animals, who are to be respected. Human, on the other hand, ... they think there are too many of us anyway!

Plus, they're well into respecting other 'cultures'.

Slightly off thread, the Moosus, herself half Nigerian with family living in the oil ruined Delta state, bought me a re print of the 1969 book, 'The Biafra Story' by Frederick Forsyth - written when he was a young, up and coming reporter. Very impressed with it, easy to read with a good Military aspect to it, and shows that the pathetic performance and relative short termism of our foreign policy towards Iraq/Afghan is nothing new.

Prior to reading it, my complete knowledge of that conflict was what I watched on the the black and white 'Telly' as an 8 year old boy, in between the warry Vietnam and then Ulster footage, and remembering the adult joke that was going around the play ground about 'Whats the fastest thing on 2 legs?..not realising that whole communites did starve to death while some fat foreign office b*stard stuffed himself with another lobster and with a stroke of a pen, signed another 'trade agreement' with a despot and condemend yet another 10,000 people to death.


Child sacrifice, ethnic cleansing ala Greek/Turkish Cypriot, Idi Amin, Yugo/ Rawanda,etc.....worse of all, how the then British Government/Western World, basically turned a blind eye and allowed a country rich in Minerals/Oil to develop into the semi organised chaos that it is today.

Whatever those '419 boys' are up to is nothing compard to the unspoken side of it.

Foreign Aid aka Bribes paid for by you and me, all that happens re this child sacrificing is short term and sensational huffing and puffing by a few MPs wanting a sound bite...remember Dafur?

Very Sad.

Sorry for the rant.
