[This is a lot like Hitler in WW2 where he also spoke about the Americans using Blacks in what was essentially a White man's war. The Jewish British have long used non-Whites in their wars, especially the Indian Ghurkas whom they praised. In the 2nd Anglo-Boer war, which was the result of the Jewish Rothschild drive to seize all the Gold and Diamonds of South Africa for the British, the entire British Empire invaded the Boer Republics. The Boers were only 1.4 million people, including men, women and children, and their 60,000 man militia type army ended up fighting almost 500,000 troops from the British Empire. The Europeans had a lot of sympathy for the plucky Boers and for their fight against the hated, two-faced Jewish controlled British. This is no different to the World Wars which were aimed at destroying the rise of Germany. That, in a nutshell is all that it was about. This is from a discussion about the Siege of Mafeking. Jan]
This is a communication that a Boer General sent to a British General:
‘It is understood that you have armed Bastards, Fingos and Baralongs against us – in this you have committed an enormous act of wickedness … reconsider the matter, even if it cost you the loss of Mafeking … disarm your blacks and thereby act the part of a white man in a white man’s war.’ – General Cronje to Colonel Baden-Powell, 29 October 1899
he Siege of Mafeking: A timeline of events
The siege and battle for Mafeking constitutes one of the most famous, but also one of the most controversial, episodes in British imperial history. Over 217 days, from 13 October 1899 to 17 May 1900, little more than 1,000 totally outgunned and outnumbered European and African defenders, ultimately only surviving on starvation rations and led by Col Baden-Powell, were initially besieged by 8,000 and, from mid-November 1899, a reduced number of around 2,000 Boer fighters, led respectively by Generals Cronje and Snyman.
Whilst this epic struggle made a hero out of the British leader, Baden-Powell, who eventually went on to achieve everlasting fame as founder of the Scouting Movement, his personal role has recently attracted criticism for alleged gross neglect of the Mafeking African population, leading to a significant number of unnecessary deaths from starvation.
As the quote by Gen. Cronje above graphically exposes, the battle for Mafeking also represented one of the first events of the Anglo-Boer War to highlight the deep racial tensions underpinning this conflict; tensions directly generated by Baden-Powell’s equally controversial decision to arm large numbers of his African defenders, which, from the Boer perspective, constituted a gross violation of the sacred principle of fighting a ‘white man’s war’.
Therefore, it was a battle which presented a major challenge to the existing pre-war social order, whereby a white South African minority sought to sustain, in wartime as well as in peacetime, their coercive dominance over a black South African majority.
