Assassination of Thomas Sankara : evidence of a documentary by RAI 3 involve France, CIA and Blaise Compaoré mercredi 9 septembre 2009
Today, most African leaders are ignorant of the needs and aspirations of the people they served, notably the masses, who formed the majority. What is being witnessed in Africa is the aggressiveness, through which African leaders assumed the mantle of leadership and the acute desire to remain permanently in power, so that they continue to amass, as much wealth, as they can and stash same in foreign banks to purposely serve the interests of their foreign lords. Any attempt to change the system will consequently lead to breakdown of law and violence, while their foreign lords continued to supply them with arms and ammunitions to protect their seats and remain in power. It does not matter, if the African masses drink the blood of one another and eat them up in the guise of war, so long as the white lords benefit from the circumstances. More so, African leaders, who have gotten wise to defend their fatherland and whose system of governance run contrary to the western policies or agenda had allegedly been conspicuously dealt with and subsequently had their governments toppled or even assassinated. We can recall the late Thomas Sankara of blessed memory, who tried to proclaim his country by attempting to change its colonial title from Ivory Coast to Burkina Faso. He was brutally massacred and replaced by Blaise Campaore, who was then his deputy.
ALLEN : Gambian President Yahya Jammeh, Blaise Compaoré, Thomas Sankara, Domingo Guengeré, and ... Foday Sankoh, as well as the man from Chad, whose name I can’t recall, had all been trained in Libya and were all friends. They are the ones who actually organised the Burkina revolution and installed Sankara as president. Once in power, he set about putting in place his plans. The next thing you know, the US had infiltrated the liberation movements and set about overthrowing Sankara, who was leaning too far left. The Americans were not happy with Sankara. He was talking of nationalizing his country’s resources to benefit his people. He was a socialist so he had to go.
