Oil for the Taking – The Secret War in Sudan – Part I

The August 27th unsubstantiated story emanating from the London Telegraph, flashed around the Internet at light speed. It alleged that 700,000 Chinese troops had amassed in Sudan, ready to slaughter the alleged Christian rebels in Southern Sudan. Within 24 hours the story was debunked as preposterous. But that does not prevent it from being repeated and even exaggerated further. Like most lies that kill, the China tale contains a grain of truth expanded to bizarre proportions.

What is the truth about war, oil and Christianity in Sudan?

The US press and thousands of church journals and newsletters pass along reports like the China tale as fact. But under the light of logic and experience, both the story of 700,000 Chinese and the tale of a “Christian” army in southern Sudan are about equally false. Both appear to be figments of a well-oiled and financed propaganda organization, started by House of Lords member Baroness Caroline Cox. She has now tipped her hand that her quest, like that of the Chinese, is for the oil fields of Sudan. It seems likely that someone is financing her to this end.

Over a year ago, “We Hold These Truths” published MISSIONARIES, MERCENARIES, MISSILES AND MONEY, which stated that we believe that the oil-starved State of Israel is behind Ms. Coxs campaign. In order to understand the fever for an international war against the government of Sudan and its coveted oil field, a brief look at Sudans past is of value.

Historians are fond of saying, “History repeats itself.” In fact, just as winning football teams repeat the plays that work, powerful men repeat in the present, those acts that brought success in the past. History is just the result of these repeated acts. Today, the third battle of Khartoum is on the drawing board. The booty today is not the vast cotton plantations in the crescent of the White and Blue Nile rivers, as it was at the turn of the 20th century — it is Sudans oil! But the “plays” of those that would steal oil from the Sudanese are much the same as the plays used a century ago.

Let us see how these men will do their best to make history repeat itself in Sudan.

It was at dawn in Sudan on a warm September morning in 1898 when the British, with a huge force of more than 20,000 men, 100 guns, and gunboats of the Royal navy began their attack on the native army that guarded the open south front to the city of Khartoum. Youthful journalist Winston Churchill was there, and British war correspondent, G.W. Stevens, wrote, “It was not a battle, but an execution.”

British General Kirchner suspended the battle for lunch. After eating lightly, he rode his white charger leisurely across the plain that had once held an opposing army. Mangled black bodies of about 10,000 men and numerous animals lay in heaps. None were alive by this time, as the General’s policy was to take no Muslim prisoners, and the expert mounted Royal Lancers had shot or impaled the wounded and prisoners on the blades of their feared eight-foot lancers.

Most of the 50,000 Khalifa warriors who attempted to defend the 34,000 inhabitants of Khartoum were armed with spears and obsolete guns. General Kirchner continued the “execution” of remaining tribes and caravans for several months. In one documented and embarrassing case, he dragged a captured and chained Black Muslim leader through the city behind a horse, to the horror of the English people back home. England had once more colonized Sudan as a giant cotton farm. The “Muslim Revolt” was over.

According to English Historian Alan Moorehead’s, “The White Nile” the population of Sudan was reduced by 50%–to barely two million– during the terrible years of British conquest and rule in the last-half of the 19th century. Sudan was only target practice for the brutality of the conquest of the African Gold mines four years later, commonly known as the Boer War, only four years later.

English Army applied some of the brutality learned in Sudan to commandeer the worlds greatest gold camps in South Africa. The British applied similar tactics to the white Dutch farmers of the Veld. Its army captured and interned the wives and children of almost every Boer farmer who was not at home to protect them, and burned their farms to the ground. By English records, more than half of the 25,000 Boers killed in the war were women and children deliberately starved and unprotected.

The British came to Sudan for cotton and sweet revenge. Now another of their Lords, Baroness Caroline Cox, wearing holy robes, has returned to steal oil. In Sudan, Part II we will discuss who is behind the propaganda war on Sudan, and the amazing role of some very prominent Celebrity Christians in the “Great Sudan Oil Heist.”
