Guinea-Bissau suspended from African Union

Guinea-Bissau has been suspended from the African Union in the wake of last week's military coup.

The suspension remains "until the restoration of constitutional order," the union said Tuesday.

The union cited the "recurrence of illegal and unacceptable interference of the leadership of Guinea-Bissau's army on the politics of the country, creating instability and culture of impunity, which have hampered the development of the country."

    AND SO IT HAS BEGUN. The last line says it all* politics of the country and culture of impunity which have hampered the development of the country*. Those very same words spoken on a Texas Ranch by a group of very wealthy and politicly powerful oil Firms owners TOLD the man that US later put in charge of a Afghan Gov., when they gave reason why they would not sign an oil agreement at that time@ And now will come the denials that explains why US remained in Afghanistan long after BIN Ladin was gone. Once again a nation Will Join industrialized world,OR ELSE! A tiny little known place that once knew the abuses of Euro Colonials, Portugal, and ever since it gained sovereignty has bounced between popular, quickly corrupted, democracy and temporary military rule, a typical 3rd world that none of the civilized nations seen any value in, Until that is very large and very necessary to the needs of the civilized mineral deposites were discovered.

    Just in case anyone would like to learn a bit more on just how massive are the plans for Central Africa and Africa overall take a look at World Bank and WTOs has already began to implement and what the future holds, But all those plans depend upon as they call it Political Stability and Cultural problems are resolved. Of course all the loans and cost involed will be paid by Africans at a low interest rate. Paid back by the profits the Africans hope they will make. While the African leaders will live in luxury by selling at whatever price Euros ray to charge the peoples will as usual will find they no longer own their country and are bankrupt in a few years. Right now it is a fight among the Euro/Centrics over who will get the largest piece of Africas pie. And to save getting their hands bloody they will hire Africans to do the killings. That it is buisness as usual will not interfere with the mainly white consumers self indulgances not at all.
