Australian And New Zealand Sympathiser’s Send Petrol To Rhodesia Via South Africa 1966
It is believed today that when Rhodesia announced her Unliteral Declaration of Independence (UDI) on 11/11/65 that the entire world was against her. That is not true. Here is just one example that clearly demonstrates the prevailing attitude of the men and women throughout the Commonwealth. These same men and women had served in wars with Rhodesians and knew us as kin. It took many years of propaganda (especially by the BBC aka the British Bolshevik Corporation) to foment anti-white Rhodesian sentiment throughout the Commonwealth.
First, a quick overview for those unfamiliar with Rhodesia’s plight:
On 11/11/65 Rhodesia announced her Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI). After UDI, sanctions were criminally and illegally imposed on Rhodesia by the United Nations. Rhodesia had the right to declare independence just as Mexico and the U.S.A. had done. As an example of peak-hypocrisy by the West, the sanctions were specifically designed to cause black suffering to foment civil unrest and war, much like the BLM Riots of today. In other words, the conditions were in fact too good in Rhodesia for true grass roots unrest to arise naturally. Thus a “Soros” type civil war had to be manufactured to support the efforts of the USSR and Chinese Communist Party to overthrow Rhodesia using their proxy terrorist-armies. Today we know this as the externally financed and orchestrated BLM movement:
After UDI Rhodesia was forced to enter into an Independence War 1965-1980 against foreign nations invading her. Communist Bloc nations (like in the rest of Africa) were actively recruiting and using black malcontents like Mugabe to train to lead their political “liberation” army i.e. a ‘black’ front for a Communist Bloc invasion.
To cover their bases the Communist blocs set up an internal division between the largest ‘black’ tribes; neither of which are indigenous to southern Africa or Rhodesia. However, there was strong resistance to this subversive tactic endorsed by the leaders of the Commonwealth and Western world. Consequently, 80% of Rhodesia’s army and police forces were black – and all were volunteers.
Keep in mind this was the era of the Vietnam War being the first war televised every night into the living rooms of the West. It would have made terrible optics to televise the Rhodesian war to accurately depict the Soviet, Chinese, Cuban and North Korean forces invading her land as a loving gesture of freedom for the black man! Thus ‘black-face’ was used to disguise the reality:
After UDI illegal sanctions were imposed on Rhodesia and fuel became a premium, it was our achilleas heel, we were not fuel independent. So sanction-busting ingenuity became a vital part of Rhodesia’s Resistance to the Communist invasion forces and their greatest supporters the United Nations. Ironically the greatest African opponents of Rhodesia in the UN were also engaging in a renewal of black slave trading and other atrocities made possible by ‘de-colonization‘. The British establishment not only chose to overlook these atrocities, develop plans to undermine peace in Rhodesia but also to invade it!
Despite these unholy alliances, we had honorable friends to match our honourable record. Furthermore, not only were British Generals appalled at the idea of invading their brothers in arms, but many Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) veterans remained loyal.
Australia and New Zealand Group Send Fuel To Rhodesia via South Africa
In 1966 a group of ANZAC veterans made the significant symbolic gesture of giving 3,000 gallons of fuel to Rhodesia. They evaded the British patrols of the east coast of Africa especially Beira Mozambique by using South Africa. Beira and other east side ports were increasingly vital for Soviet, CCP, NK and Cuban forces to conquer southern Africa. After Korea and Malaya it’s shocking that Britain deserted Rhodesia and enabled this.
Following the convoy’s arrival an exceptional speech was given, unfortunately British Pathe only provides a snippet with no further details. However this is the transcript of that snippet:
That Rhodesian’s helped in the campaign in Malay against the Chinese Communist guerillas in the ’50’s, and that Rhodesian’s served in Korea. The great majority of Rhodesian’s are the very kith and kin of the great majority of Australians and New Zealanders. And I believe it’s a shocking state of affairs when people of the same stock who share the same traditions, the same history, should be forced into what is virtually a state of civil war to the great delight of our common enemies. And those who seek to destroy our traditions must be indeed pleased with this state of affairs.
I believe today ladies and gentlemen that Rhodesia holds the frontline for civilization in Africa.
This speech eloquently points out the Conquer and Divide technique we knew so well from Communist forces, agitators and Fabian subversives plotting the demise of Africa in the 4th Comintern session. We learned fast in Rhodesia about their “made for TV” revolutions. We were also witness to the atrocities and savagery of countless refugees from “liberated” nations. Including those who escaped the Mau Mau horrors, the Congo and Angolan atrocities and even the Mozambiquean scorched earth nightmare.
Why Rhodesian’s Fought
Rhodesian’s Were Brothers In Arms
Rhodesia contributed more men per capita than other nations in the Commonwealth to serve in WWII. This is an excellent example of the propaganda war the BBC and other Western media outlets waged against Rhodesia. With the loss of so many able bodied men our country’s development programs had to be halted and funds diverted elsewhere. This was conveniently blamed on “racism”.
PM Ian Smith served in WWII. Even the extremely biased Wikipedia has to concede he served with remarkable valour:
The future Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith served in the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Second World War, interrupting his studies at Rhodes University in South Africa to join up in 1941. Following a year’s pilot instruction in Southern Rhodesia under the Empire Air Training Scheme, he was posted to No. 237 (Rhodesia) Squadron, then stationed in the Middle East, in late 1942. Smith received six weeks’ operational training in the Levant, then entered active service as a pilot officer in Iran and Iraq. No. 237 Squadron, which had operated in the Western Desert from 1941 to early 1942, returned to that front in March 1943. Smith flew in the Western Desert until October that year, when a crash during a night takeoff resulted in serious injuries, including facial disfigurements and a broken jaw. Following reconstructive plastic surgery to his face, other operations and five months’ convalescence, Smith rejoined No. 237 Squadron in Corsica in May 1944. While there, he attained his highest rank, flight lieutenant.
In late June 1944, during a strafing attack on a railway yard in the Po Valley in northern Italy, Smith was shot down by anti-aircraft fire. Parachuting from his aircraft, he landed without serious injury in the Ligurian Alps, in an area that was behind German lines, but largely under the control of anti-German Italian partisans. Smith spent three months working with the local resistance movement before trekking westwards, across the Maritime Alps, with three other Allied personnel, hoping to join up with the Allied forces that had just invaded southern France. After 23 days’ hiking, he and his companions were recovered by American troops and repatriated.
Smith was briefly stationed in Britain before he was posted to No. 130 (Punjab) Squadron in western Germany in April 1945. He flew combat missions there until Germany surrendered in May. He remained with No. 130 Squadron for the rest of his service, and returned home at the end of 1945. After completing his studies at Rhodes, he was elected to the Legislative Assembly for his birthplace, Selukwe, in 1948. He became Prime Minister in 1964, during his country’s dispute with Britain regarding the terms for independence; Smith was influenced as a politician by his wartime experiences, and Rhodesia’s military record on behalf of Britain became central to his sense of betrayal by post-war British governments. This partly motivated his administration’s Unilateral Declaration of Independence in 1965. His status as a Second World War RAF veteran helped him win support, both domestically and internationally.Military Service PM Ian Smith
The betrayal went further.
From Brothers In Arms To Permanent Cash Cows
Below Edwards G Griffin explains what the Commonwealth and BBC already knew – that by 1928 the Communists had declared that racial differences were the easiest to manipulate to incite division to enable their World Wide Revolution:
Ironically those tax payers, finally convinced it was a “race” war, and that “liberation” would enable independence and freedom have been paying to prop up Zimbabwe, a Maoist Basket Case, ever since.
No doubt those tax-payers and their families would have benefitted from funding less “aid” and also having access to the low cost world class produce that Rhodesia was exporting. Furthermore, other countries like South Africa and Britain would not be inundated with half of the black Zimbabwean population that has fled the basket-case nation. Ironic given Rhodesia had always had the reverse problem.
A very proud moment for the ANZACs to see that fuel convoy driving down the streets of Salisbury. And also for the Australian and New Zealand veterans of Rhodesia’s war of independence. The Anglosphere will yet see the Green and White at the Menin Gate Nov 11.
Once the Rhodesian republic had chartered its own national bank (independent of the Vampyre Squid), the young nation could address a lot of fuel problems simply by being an agricultural superpower on a continent of failed Marxist states. Humanitarian crisis was/is the basis of these OAU economies – a humanitarian crisis entirely of the making of the Communist Revolution and its ‘national liberation front’ Gook cadres of the ANC and uMkhonto we Sizwe. And all of them were/are in a deep and meaningful relationship with the US / UK governments which were picking up the tab for these failed Marxist states and Potemkin villages of the Fourth ComIntern.
I think the RF gov’t of PM Smith knew very well this dirty little secret of the Communist Bloc in Africa and the OAU which is why they were exporting food to them. The likes of Zambia couldn’t very well eat USD – even if it was the world reserve currency. And so the Rhodesians helpfully re-routed that USD to the independent Bank of Rhodesia. Even though the Rhodesian dollar was blacklisted on all money markets controlled by the Vampyre Squid, the ‘food stamp’ currencies from Western democracies (all posing as ‘anti-Communist’) paid to the humanitarian crisis of the OAU nations found its way to the independent Bank of Rhodesia by fair trade. But there were no deals in banana roubles, the Rhodesians dealt in world reserve and that was one of the reasons why the Rh$ was at parity with the GBP right throughout the war. It looks to me like Rhodesia paid for their war necessities in currencies of the Big crypto Communist powers of the West. They really stuck it to them. And just to make the politics really fierce with the cryptos, they could have played the ‘sell-out’ card on the OAU anytime they wanted.
Yes we had sympathisers in every country I would think, however, the facts remain that governments everywhere turned against Rhodesia as anti-Rhodesian sentiment had been stoked up to fever pitch by lying corporate media everywhere that no government anywhere would disagree.
