South Africa, "Warnings of a Failed State"

2013-09-08 18:50

On one afternoon in 1938 Adolf Hitler was laughing  that he has seen the leaders of the Allied Forces (Britain and France, later Russia and the United States) and he has found them that they are little worms, "I can confirm to you that they are just worms" he purportedly reported to his idol and hero Benito Mussolini, Prime Minister of Italy. What Adolf Hitler did not consider is that even worms have the ability to turn and twist and eventually eat your body.

So Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini confidently pressed forward in pride and confidence, convinced of quick victory. Reasonably supposing that nothing stood in their way, and they invaded Poland on the 1 September 1939 after having invaded the Czech Republic.

With the invasion of Poland and Adolf Hitler boosting to continue on, the British new that it will be just a matter of time Adolf Hitler comes smoking hard on them. So Britain dragged the reluctant and scared France along and advanced to meet Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. And so began the World War II, the bloodiest conflict in the whole history of humankind.

British and France were defeated like worms of course as Adolf Hitler predicted and the war seemed to be all over.  Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini seemed to have won the war so easily: it was over in a matter of weeks.

But just as it seemed the war was all over things changed. In London an unreasonable worm was twisting and turning; the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill refused to surrender and retreat – he resolved to keep on fighting Adolf Hitler and his master race against all odds. "Let us then move forward together in discharge of our mission and our duty, fearing God and nothing else." Winston Churchill was belligerent to keep fighting! In South African lingua franca Winston Churchill was simply subscribing to "Asijiki" view.

So instead of a war that should have lasted only few weeks the war dragged on for 6 years, from 1939 to 1945. And nearly 100 million corpses were buried in the process. Adolf Hitler was defeated and he committed suicide and ordered his body and that of his girlfriend to be burned to ashes. Benito Mussolini was killed and his body was hanged upside down like a dog with the prostitute he was living with at a public square in Milan.

There are about 50 million results on the search phrase "South Africa a failed state in the making" when one is performing a Google search. And further South Africa is now included on the list of those countries that are on the brink of being declared on the Failed States Index List by the international research organization Fund for Peace.

Those are not “negative news” they are just news informed by rigorous and thorough research. The Fund for Peace is an independent, nonpartisan, 501(c) (3) non-profit research and educational organization that focuses and specialists on the problems of weak and failing states. It generates country specific research findings that needs to be taken positively and embraced instead of just ignoring them like the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler calling them as just “worms."
