Fresh blood for the ongoing move to pilfer Africa’s resources.

Blue helmets will take military action against militias in the war-torn Congo, the Washington Times reported late last week. They will no longer simply stand on the sidelines, but will take an active role in the warfare between rival tribal groups.
“To be a peacekeeper doesn’t mean you need to be passive,” Gen. Carlos Alberto dos Santos Cruz told the newspaper. “To be a peacekeeper, you need to take action. The way to protect the civilians is to take action. If you see the history of atrocities here, it justifies action.”
Formerly, the globalist organization did its best to present a neutral presence as favored governments and handpicked proxies engaged in military action. Stakes in the Democratic Republic of Congo, however, are high. It is a mineral rich area where much of the world’s coltan is mined.
Coltan, short for columbite–tantalite and known industrially as tantalite, is used to manufacture tantalum capacitors used in electronics, especially cell phones.
The CIA has worked behind the scenes for decades in the Congo. It began with the assassination of the country’s first prime minister after independence from Belgium, the socialist Patrice Lumumba. The United Nations worked hand-in-glove with the United States and the CIA to destabilize the Congo and set it up for the bloody conflict that continues there today. Since the establishment of Africom, the U.S. Africa Command, and the importation of al-Qaeda and other CIA-created terror groups in northern Africa, a renewed emphasis has been placed on stepped-up balkanization and pacification of the continent.
Congolese “minerals are vital to maintaining U.S. military dominance, economic prosperity, and consumer satisfaction,” write Dena Montague and Frida Berrigan. “Because the United States does not have a domestic supply of many essential minerals, the U.S. government identifies sources of strategic minerals, particularly in Third World countries, then encourages U.S. corporations to invest in and facilitate production of the needed materials.”
In fact, the U.S. government is owned and operated by the global elite and their transnational corporations and bankster institutions, not other way around. As should be readily apparent, a once affluent American middle class, thanks to decades of prosperity, financed the expansion of the U.S. military and its proxies into resource rich areas. The U.S. has consistently acted as an enforcer for the global financial and corporate elite.
Montague and Berrigan continue:
Tantalum, also referred to as coltan, is a particularly valuable resource – used to make mobile phones, night vision goggles, fiber optics, and capacitors (the component that maintains the electrical charge in computer chips). In fact, a global shortage of coltan caused a wave of parental panic in the United States last Christmas (2000) when it resulted in the scarcity of the popular PlayStation 2. The DRC holds 80% of the world’s coltan reserves, more than 60% of the world’s cobalt, and the world’s largest supply of high-grade copper.
A ramped up UN military posture not only threatens the sovereignty of Africans, but other people who might resist the geopolitical machinations of the elite. The U.S. military, while still a potent force on the world stage, has weakened considerably in the wake of more than a decade of military adventure, primarily in Iraq and Afghanistan. A fresh infusion of “peacekeepers” will be needed to enforce the next phase of globalist domination as China makes serious moves on the continent and the western global elite move to counter it.
