Letters responding to: ‘Let’s teach these darkies about the rule of law’, by Tim Black
I think what’s clear is that the history of the so-called West and its relationship to Africa has always been one of vicious exploitation - history is littered with evidence of this - by the holier-than-thou whites. The ICC is there only to bring ‘darkies’ to heel, as they exert their mythical white-man status, now their economies have failed. We note that no one from the apartheid regime has been docked.
Remember, Charles Taylor was living in Nigeria, as part of a peace deal. Indicting him undermined Africa’s potential to resolve its own conflicts. And don’t forget the lies about Libya and the bloodshed intervention has caused there, against a man who withstood their tyranny under the guise of humantarian intervention. Truth be told, the West are utterly incapable of the altruism to which they so tenaciously pretend.
