"The burden of a white man." A few words about the girls of Nigeria and not only

"The burden of a white man." A few words about the girls of Nigeria and not only

The Nigerian militants from Boko Haram provided the other day to the French international Agency of the Republic of Azerbaijan photographs of girls captured in mid-April. According to Commander Boko Haram, many of them have converted to Islam and do not want to come back. These words, no matter how sad - are not a lie at all. And sadness is not in the "desire" of girls to recognize / accept Islam as a new religion, but in the fact that they did not have and have no choice.


Africa, as it once was, remains a rather wild continent. Neither colonization, nor subsequent decolonization could affect it - genes are stronger than any civilization. Moreover, instincts are stronger where there is no civilization at all.

North of Nigeria - conditional "wild field". Unlike the southern parts, where the oil and gas reserves are located, the Europeans hardly mastered the northern part - the power was nominal, and that was, unlike the South (where this process was entrusted to the leaders of key tribes and ethnic groups). ), was built on intertribal differences and, as a result - violence.

The main population of the north is Muslim. A certain percentage are Christians, but it is very small. Contrary to popular opinion, clashes on religious grounds in the country did not begin after zero, “being provoked by the Anglo-Saxon countries,” but long before. But the relative remoteness of the country from the conditional civilization, the lack of a stable connection and the fact that in jurisprudence is called "the absence of public interest" did not cause almost no reaction from the "world community". Meanwhile, they cut each other constantly and thoroughly - both in 80, in 90, and in zero.

Serious - already explored, and not yet - oil reserves and the "quiet" appearance of the Chinese, before that, unlike the south of the continent, almost imperceptible in this part of the region, the interest of the West to the country seriously revived. Where potential investors - there is lave. Very big. There are many applicants for it. Where lave is blood. It is not less than money. Less than it can not be - a direct link.

Money, plus poverty and, as a result, anger and aggression, plus a reliance on religion (in this case, what a surprising coincidence is Islam) in the minds of backward masses is a recipe for ready-made conflict. The interests of serious corporations and the countries behind them are his guarantee.

This is exactly what is happening in the country.

Returning to abduction. Abductions in the country (and on the continent) occur regularly. Moreover, in Nigeria, the abduction of foreigners is almost as frequent as, for example, in the Horn of Africa. Moreover, in the West everyone understands and knows this, and not only keep their MTRs ready (SBS operation at 2012), train the official army or keep their Private Military Companies, but also teach tribes in the north of the country at their own expense. Also Muslim, but less extremist.

How to check what is “less”, what is “more”, is difficult for me to say. Clit girls cut and those and others. Although, here, Egypt is considered more developed, but the unofficial laws are the same there. The Chinese are no exception. Pay everyone. One - for what they give, others, so as not to interfere. And better, focused on the mezhdusoboychik. This is so, by the way, if anyone immediately had patriotic feelings against the background of dislike for the Anglo-Saxons.

Why did I write that girls are doomed anyway? Because even the Christians in that part of the country did not particularly leave Muslims in their development. Abduction of children and their subsequent sale into slavery, or voluntary sale — the economic situation of families is poor, and many children are common there (in the south too, but not to that extent) as well as in times of slave markets. The internal laws are also almost unchanged.

It’s naive to expect the girls to come back unruly. So not only in Africa, but here especially. The chances that families and villages will be able to fully accept them after all the above are small. To put it mildly. Specifically, by experience - the girl is doomed. As in the East, there is only one way for her - in the best (for European thinking) case - a prostitute, an object for ridicule and bullying. At worst (for her - on the contrary) - the father or brothers will deprive her of life. Her happiness - if painless.

I may be mistaken in some way, but experience suggests that if there are exceptions to the rules, then only external ones. For the civilized world. Or for girls from wealthy families who are ready to give a ransom.

Another part of the girls would prefer to stay with the kidnappers. Strange as it may seem, but for them this is a definite way out of the situation. The ability to avoid shame.


In one of the publications, I came across a rhetorical question - why the West is not doing anything to release them. In fact - taking. And, I have no doubt, in the near future, if they fail to reach an agreement, a force action will be held to free them (its effectiveness is a separate issue). However, the question that was asked, to a greater extent, is moral, not operational. It is exactly from the same plane as the questions - why did not they prevent the genocide in Rwanda or the many years of massacre in the Congo, or the recent slaughter in Sudan. Substantial slaughter - even the northerners did not have so much time during the years of attempts, as the southerners themselves were not at all. Not prevented for two reasons. First, as a kind of revenge for the decolonization mentioned - they say, devour what they dreamed of.

The second - much more cynical and evil - cut each other, does not concern us. To do this, do not need official statements by politicians, it is enough to know the instructions for the UN parts located on the continent. The main thing is non-interference. Exceptions are countries in which serious states have strategic interests. Example - the French in the northwest - Ivory Coast, Mali ..

By the way, "West" - in this case - is a relative concept. So would any other "civilized" country. Accustomed to colonization.

The potential (recent or next) massacre in the conditional Kyrgyzstan (or Kirghizia?) Is hardly an exception to the rule.

And the only exception to the rule that comes to mind is the actions of the Special Forces in Tajikistan in 92-95, with all professionalism - the result of the same strategic interests of the country. But not the morality of its politicians.


On the other hand, if politics were moral, wouldn't it be the other way around? As in the photo above.

        Just oil and gas in Nigeria - just nowhere. One of Boko Haram's claims is that the "anti-Islamic" government shares little with Muslims the proceeds from the sale of these. Essno they demand to share with Muslims, moreover, it is in their face.

      The colonialists have not really left, and are still trying to exploit Africa, controlling most governments and resources. For those who kick, the fate of Gaddafi.
      And in general, the fact that they live like this is a great achievement of the colonialists, who, moreover, have bled black Africa, taking people out for centuries and practically pursuing a policy of genocide. Almost all the leaders of all African countries received a good European and American education ... and how do they build their states?
      There, in Cuba, too, half the blacks, but they differ from the main part of the black Africans, like heaven from earth ...

        Oh come on. Africa has been like this all its life, both before and after colonization. Well, they don’t know how to work and don’t want, we’d better beg for money from the UN and other international organizations and whine to the whole world about the evil white colonizers who oppressed the poor blacks and forced them to work. Well, nafig, feed this rabble, let them cut each other further.

          Which one? Who told you what Africa was like? For three hundred years, whites exported millions of slaves from Africa, while for every one brought, there were a couple of underestimated and a couple killed during resistance. All the coastal territories where ships could dock, rivers flowed into the river (usually they are centers of civilization) turned into extinct lands, inhabited by only local tribes, whose heads lived exclusively on the resale of their compatriots to white people. The rudiments of civilization, where the colonialists resisted, were burned with the same sequence as the Indians in America, more than a dozen generations of African blacks grew up as slaves, children of slaves, when the life of a black man was worth nothing, when everything that he produced belonged to a white master, as and he ... do you think this didn’t affect the mentality? And what do you think, knowledge of that. that the colonialists destroyed more than half of the black population of Africa should add blacks a good attitude towards the colonialists?
          I strongly advise - talk to Cuban blacks and your opinion, to put it mildly, will change.
          You know, when you’re like that, through your lips, you broadcast that all Negroes are worthless, let them cut each other, ironize your dislike of the colonialists, you yourself resemble a Negro ... only an American - swaggering American, peremptory .... and equally informed, convinced that whites owe him his life ... - everything is the same, just the opposite. :)))

    The article is shocking in its truth. I agree with the author - the future of girls is sad.
    ".. her way is one - at best (for European thinking) case - a prostitute, an object for ridicule and mockery. At worst (for her - on the contrary) - her father or brothers will take her life." Trafficking in children nowadays is already becoming a global problem - US policy for this is not a bad effort

      This is a small fraction of the truth on a small piece of a vast continent .... On a significant part of the continent, women and, especially, girls, not as valuable to the household as boys are a thing, often a thing for sale. In the hunger years in some regions of their lives they cost almost nothing ... A girl can be exchanged with mom and dad for a box of fish .... a rusty PM is more expensive ... and not for use, but for good - at least kill her later .. ..
      During the two Congolese wars, unleashed in the late 90s and early 5s (sometimes united under the name of the "First World African War") due to resources, mainly rare earth metals and for other reasons, during the hostilities of armies and irregular formations of nine countries , ethnic cleansing and starvation killed between 10 and XNUMX million people. Mostly civilians.
      In the tribal massacre mainly with knives, between the Hutu and Tutsi tribal unions (if my memory serves me), whole villages and thousands of people were destroyed - approximately as in medieval Europe ... or how Bandera and Hitlerites acted destroying Belarusian and Ukrainian villages ...
      So that such things happen there, that the blood in your veins is freezing, and the sale of children against the background of the rest is, so, an easy touch ...

    For some reason, no one has heard, at least in the modern era, that Christians, Jews, Buddhists were engaged in these matters. Only Muslims, supporters of the "religion of peace," as Muslims themselves call Islam.

      Interestingly, and who said that they are Muslims? Boko Haram themselves call themselves Muslims! And the Wahhabis consider themselves Muslims. And the Salafis are the same! And the Taliban ...
      In short, every scum has the intelligence to call themselves Muslims, to come up with their own type of Islamic laws, such as Sharia courts and so on. And so they call cannibalism halal, and use the services of prostitutes and other abominations.
      And these people are not Muslims, but pseudo-Muslims! They hide behind Islam, interpret it in
      a favorable light for yourself. And yet, it’s beneficial to have zombie soldiers going to their deaths, only
      for the promise to go to heaven with the gurians! Therefore, these types of Muslims, basically Papuans are rootless, without education, way of thinking, and even understanding themselves as individuals!

    In Nigeria, some kind of metallurgical plant was being built with the support of specialists from the USSR and Europe and there were attempts to create a more or less decent state. But it seems that nothing came of it and the country got bogged down in economic problems and slipped into a tribal war. whether they can change and fight among themselves for hundreds of years. Foreign governance is also problematic. The mentality of the population is such that it is easier for them to kill someone and rob than to earn money by honest work. How can you help people who want to eat, drink and smoke , It is also desirable to have fun, but at the same time you are not accustomed to work and earn money?

    In general, the history of the war in Nigeria goes back to the 60s of the last century. Very well the history of the causes of this conflict is described by Fr. Forsythe in "Istyria Biafra" (read if interested, but cognitively, that's for sure). An artificial country created by the Britons, from three different tribes (Muslim north and Christian south and east), independence, oil, and as a result, 50 years smoldering, then flaring up conflict (as, indeed, in most of the former British colonies). By the way, it was in the wars in Nigeria and Congo that the "gray GCSEs" showed their entire inconsistency.

    Not prevented for two reasons. Firstly, as if some kind of revenge for the mentioned decolonization - they say, eat what you dreamed about.
    The second - much more cynical and evil - cut each other, it does not concern us.

    - Well, what's wrong with that? Quite a balanced policy. Some of our "free republics" also thought that they would expel the Russians (whites), and paradise would come for them! They will eat from golden bowls and defecate in golden toilets. But paradise did not come, but Somalia. Who's guilty? Who else but Russians (whites)!
    And with regards to Africa, the less black, the brighter around.

    it is necessary to throw the injured side of the trunks, which should be written off. Cynical and evil? Yes! But only the West has nothing to do with it - what did the blacks do when the colonies gained independence? That's right, they began to happily bring down each other. Instead of working for the good of their states.
    Africa has such potential and resources that with it the rest of the world can be fed if desired. Only for this it is necessary to plow and sow, and not wait for humanitarian aid from the West or the USSR / Russia.

    There is another side to the coin, you can come and try to carry civilization by investing a huge amount of money and efforts of people. The result from this is always the same - losses and claims with spits from those whom they sincerely tried to help. A living example is the USSR. No one knows how to help African countries, since the salvation of a drowning man in this case is the work of the drowning man himself.

    As for me - let the chimney sweeps cut each other for the glory of Allah, Yahweh, Cthulhu or whatever else you like. Relying on their own forces, they are not able to build their own somehow stable and at least a little bit safe state: anarchy and starvation, it seems, are sewn into the gene code of this race. The main thing is that this does not affect us, otherwise there were earlier in the USSR and lovers of feeding those who do not remember (as the future has shown) good "Lumumb", taking resources from their own and so, to put it mildly, poor population.
