    Behind 'The Third Boer War'

    Editor's note: This column is the story behind Anthony LoBaido's recently published epic novel, "The Third Boer War."

    The story of how I came to write "The Third Boer War is stranger than the fictional plot of the novel itself. It was a 10-year odyssey that challenged my will and faith at a level I had never before experienced.
    Between June and December of 1991 I traveled to South Africa to complete the foreign journalism internship for my master's degree at Baylor University in Texas -- where I had earned a full scholarship for an International Journalism degree. South Africa was the epitome of my youth. While working in South Africa, then still pro-West, Christian and anti-Communist and anti-globalist, I became the first and only journalist in the world to gain entrance into the elite, mercenary-run training camps of South Africa's Afrikaner Resistance Movement. These investigations produced ground-breaking journalism.
    My articles were featured in the South African Sunday Star, Durban Times, Belgium Way Press (translated into French) and Soldier of Fortune magazine. Former South African President F.W. De Klerk even used photographs appearing with my articles in his campaign to dismantle Apartheid in the March 1992 referendum. Nelson Mandela went on national television holding a copy of one of my stories, railing against the anti-communist Afrikaners. Of course the liberal Newsday -- my hometown Long Island newspaper which I delivered in rain, snow or sunshine for years as a young boy -- rejected all of these stories outright.
    Can you imagine that?
    Using my Afrikaans language (the Dutch/German hybrid spoken by the Boer/Afrikaners) ability as a gateway, I was able to get inside the Afrikaner mentality in a way that few other foreign/Western journalists had ever been able to. I was given a unique insight into the complexities of South Africa's contemporary geopolitical situation. Most prominent of these was the 30-year "Border War" the Afrikaners fought in Angola against the Soviet Union, Cuba, East Germany and other Soviet allies who tried to invade their nation.
    Of course most Americans have been totally brainwashed about the Afrikaners and South Africa. In general, the public has been told that the Afrikaners are Nazis who hate blacks. Movies like "Lethal Weapon 2" have sadly only fueled this propaganda lie of the leftist, Marxist Hollywood elite.
    The reality is of course, 180 degree in the opposite direction. The Afrikaners carved the richest and most prosperous nation out of the wilderness of Africa. They fought and bled and died for Great Britain and America in World War I and II. (Despite the fact that the British killed 26,000 Afrikaner women and children in the world's first concentration camps during the Boer War 1899-1902). Afrikaner pilots fought for South Korea -- along with the Rhodesians -- during the Korean War. Yet South Korea voted for anti-South Africa and anti-Rhodesia sanctions at the United Nations after all they did for Seoul at their darkest hour.
    The Afrikaners even helped Israel to build their own nuclear weapons. Could there be anything more anti-Nazi than arming Jews in Israel with their own atomic arsenal against their Soviet-backed Islamic jihad adversaries?
    Of course not.
    The Afrikaners in general were and are the greatest people I have ever encountered -- and I have lived, worked and traveled to the four corners of the Earth. They are tough and rugged and Christian. Their ruggedness exceeds that even of the Israelis and South Koreans. The Afrikaners were against abortion, which was illegal in their nation from the 1600's until the ANC took over in 1994. Television was kept out of South Africa until the mid 1970s. Pornographic magazines were also illegal until the late 1980s. Shops in South Africa closed on Saturday afternoon to prepare for the Sunday Sabbath.
    All in all, despite the many egregious flaws of Apartheid, South Africa was a maverick, Christian, anti-communist, pro-West nation and the brightest outpost of Christian, European civilization in all of Africa. The Afrikaners were also the key member of an anti-communist alliance during the Cold War featuring El Salvador, Chile, Taiwan and Israel. When America would not help the Contras any longer, it was the Afrikaners who sent arms -- and the means and will to take out Marxists like Bishop Romero in El Salvador. When the American Congress lied about helping South Africa stop the Soviets and Cubans in Angola, it was left, as always to the Afrikaners, to handle the communists on their own. And then did -- as always.
    Yes, the human-rights abuses under Apartheid committed by the government hit squads -- led by lunatics like Eugene de Kock and Dr. Wauter Basson -- are the epitome of evil. But they represent one tenth of one percent of the Afrikaner nation. These crimes and, in fact, the entire war in South Africa were committed in the suppression of a Marxist terrorist war, launched by the Soviet-trained African National Congress. The truth be known, some of these crimes were so horrible that I would have probably joined the ANC myself had I known about them in the early 1990s.
    On the other side of the coin, the ANC's crimes are legion. These included putting tires filled with petrol around the necks of their enemies and lighting them on fire. Terrorist bombings of Afrikaner women and children - like the infamous Church Street attack -- represent the very worst of this asymmetrical campaign. The ANC also tortured and murdered its own black communist cadres -- especially in the Angola terrorist training camps. Nelson Mandela even ordered and then covered up the slaughter of unarmed Zulus at the Shell House massacre after he was released from prison.

    The Mandela myth
    Not many people realize that Nelson and Winny Mandela have a great deal of blood on their hands. Despite the lies spread to the gullible American public on Oprah and Larry King, even Mandela admits in his autobiography that he should have been summarily executed for his crimes. He spent little time at Robbin Island, and actually lived under house arrest in a comfortable estate complete with every amenity imaginable.
    Speaking of the Mandela myth, only last week, Harry Wu, perhaps the world's leading human-rights dissident told me, "When I think of [Nelson] Mandela, I feel very sad. When he became president of South Africa, he abandoned Taiwan and recognized China instead. Taiwan and [anti-communist, Apartheid] South Africa had been close allies. Mandela has extensive human rights knowledge. He may not be a communist, but the new leader of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki is definitely a communist. Recently he went to Cuba to meet with Castro, and he was trained in Moscow."
    Nelson Mandela, upon his ascent to power, legalized abortion and advanced the homosexual agenda. He even put homosexual rights in South Africa's new constitution -- the first time this was done in the history of civilization. The country has been overrun with illegal immigrants, pornography, AIDS and crime. Mandela, in true Marxist fashion, even emptied the jails of all the rapists and murderers. This is known as "anarcho-tyranny," and has led to a general state of anarchy in "The New South Africa," just has it has in Venezuela and the New Indonesia under their de facto Marxist governments.
    Furthermore, Mandela told his cadres to "burn down their schools," meaning the whites', and not to learn Afrikaans, which he called the "language of the oppressor." Of course Mandela did give his inaugural address when he became president in Afrikaans. In that way he reminds one of Cambodia's Pol Pot, who spoke French fluently, yet sent anyone else who spoke French to the Killing Fields. Mandela's illiterate and unemployable minions, who now run the nation, have led South Africa down the slippery slope of anarchy.

    Even the old bogey of Soviet Communism is now exposed as phony.
    It seems it was all concocted by the Capitalists and Christians who feared loosing their gold and power.
    If the USA had gone communist in the 1920's the negro would have had his own segregated nation. the US would be 100 % White by now.
    I am not convinced about the "positive" side of communists in saving the white race. It was communist Russia, East Germany and Cuba who armed and trained black terrorists in South Africa's long bush war. Also these days the communist/marxist parties in South Africa draw mainly black members. Not forgetting Nelson Mandela who wrote the book "How to be a good communist".

    Just a public reply to Oryx back there. As I recall it was the British army that was training "communist" guerillas in the war against Rhodesia in order to install Mugabe. As for South Africa, it was the Bible clutching race traitor , De Clerk that signed over South Africa to Mandela. The Communists were useless and never defeated South Africa militarily.
    Even Che Guevara became a racist. He complains in his diaries how useless blacks were for revolutionary purposes.
    Indeed the South Africans should have set a policy of sterilisation of the blacks in the 1950's. Those accepting should have been given jobs and decent housing.
    I think communism is a good governmental system for non-Germanics. Cuba now has a reasonable, environmentally sustainable, standard of living. They have a good health care system, free housing and a low birth rate. (its a pity Mexico never went communist in the 1950's- as their birthrate would be low now also- with non of the corresponding flood of their excess into the US.)
    In the end it was Capitalists (such as Thatcher and Bush ) that betrayed our Germanic nations (Rhodesia and South Africa, included, from within), putting personal wealth and cheap labour ahead of the folk.

    The way I understand it, and I have seen a doccumetary commented by a SADF general, The deployment of 3 full heavy divisions by castro against
    the SADF was a definite factor. I dont think this statement is correct,
    "The Communists were useless"

    600 tanks 1000 mechanized aa bateries over 1000 artillery. 36,000 troops and as may different videos as you want, says anyone who says that is living in dreamland. The Cubans did rock the SADF 's house. There are videos showing SADF generals admiting it.

    The main reason for the difficulties the SADF suffered during this war was that the SADF always was postured as an 'Anti-insurgency' force more than anything else,and trained acordingly. The Cuban Army and Airforce were meant to fight conventional wars, and in conventional wars basically there are no insurgencies, meaning that whn artillery tanks, and multiple rocket launchers are massed, anything in front of it gets hit, the exellent abilities of the SADF in flanking and bush warfare were not as useful. You cannot dance between falling shells for long. The SADF was unprepared
    and did worse than expected against the cubans whose troops were 90%
    Black or Mulato.

    There are two sides to the story, and you are listening to only one. You can read up on a neutral source:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_African_Border_War

    ... and especially the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale.

    Both sides have claimed victory in the war, it was in fact ended by negotiation. The Cubans would never have been able to defeat the SADF on African soil. The war didn't even come close to South Africa's borders anyway, all of it was fought in Angola, and the northern part of South West Africa.

    I dont really care that much . But Images of captured SADF troops and destroyed planes and tanks show that there was a big conflict and obviously there had to be SADF troops manning that equipment, and therefore dead.
