Going from Soldier to Cop to President for Life - What it takes to get there - Thinker - 01-30-2016 05:25 PM

What every country is starting to look like when the military industrial complex moves in? - It becomes owned and operated and enslaved after the mass murders and destruction! What rewards come to those who obey and what are the penalties if they don't? In some nations dictators have been put in place to own their seats of power - coming to America?

How do the crimes against humanity by the leaders of Iraq, Libya, and Syria compare to those of the president of Gambia. The people of Gambia cry out for help and those of Iraq, Libya, and Syria didn't. Military industrial complex winning the game in Gambia - no need for bombs?

From soldier to cop to president for life - world politics is broken.

The president of the Gambia, Yahya Jammeh as a young army officer, in 1989, and in 1992 became commander of the Gambian Military Police receiving extensive military training in neighboring Senegal and at United States Army School of the Americas.

By way of a military coup Jammeh took power of the country in a 1994. He was elected as President in 1996; he was re-elected in 2001, 2006, and 2011.

President Jammeh, like the majority of Gambians, practices Islam.

Jammeh has been accused of restricting freedom of the press. Harsh new press laws were followed by the unsolved killing of Deyda Hydara, editor of The Point tabloid. Hydara, who had been mildly critical of the Jammeh regime, was brutally gunned down in December 2004.

On 10 and 11 April 2000, the government was accused of the killing of 12 students and a journalist during a student demonstration to protest the death of a student in the Gambia. Jammeh was accused of ordering the shooting of the students, but the government denied the allegations.

Newspaper reports list dozens of individuals who have disappeared after being picked up by men in plain-clothes, and others who have languished under indefinite detention for months or years without charge or trial.

Jammeh has also been linked with the 2004 massacre of 44 Ghanaian migrants and 10 other ECOWAS nationals. On 16 June 2015, a statement from the State House stated that President Jammeh should be addressed as "His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr. Yahya A.J.J. Jammeh Babili Mansa".

U.S. Training Future Dictators who have to comply or die? The US Army School of the Americas was founded in 1946 and originally located at Fort Gulick in the Panama Canal Zone. In 1984 the school was expelled from Panama under the terms of the Panama Canal Treaty.

Colombia supplied the largest number of students from any client country. As the Cold War drew to a close around 1990, United States foreign policy shifted focus from "anti-communism" to the War on Drugs, with narcoguerillas replacing "communists".

This term was later replaced by "the more ominous sounding 'terrorist'".

By 2000 the School of the Americas was under increasing criticism in the United States for training students who later participated in undemocratic governments and committed human rights abuses.

In 2000 Congress, through the FY01 National Defense Act, withdrew the Secretary of the Army's authority to operate USARSA. The next year, WHINSEC was founded as a successor institute.

Since its opening in 2001, WHINSEC has trained more than 19,000 students from 36 countries of the Western Hemisphere. In 2014-2015, the principal "Command & General Staff Officer" course had 65 graduates (60 male and 5 female) representing 13 nations: Belize, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and the U.S.A.

WHINSEC has provided training for more than 10,000 individuals since its existence and over 60,000 US and international students since its original establishment in 1946.

Its educational format incorporates guest lecturers and experts from sectors of US and international government, non-government, human rights, law enforcement, academic institutions, and interagency departments to share best practices in pursuit of improved security cooperation between all nations of the Western Hemisphere.

WHINSEC has been criticized for human rights violations committed by former students.


According to the Center for International Policy, "The School of the Americas had been questioned for years, as it trained many military personnel before and during the years of the 'national security doctrine' – the dirty war years in the Southern Cone and the civil war years in Central America – in which the armed forces within several Latin American countries ruled or had disproportionate government influence and committed serious human rights violations in those countries."

SOA and WHINSEC graduates continue to surface in news reports regarding both current human rights cases and new reports. How many members of ISIS, ISIL, and any other rebel group were trained and funded by U.S. tax dollars by way of the SOA?

Sona Jobarteh - GAMBIA - Thinker - 01-30-2016 05:33 PM

Something positive and beautiful emerging in Gambia - Music and instruments most Americans have never seen delivering a sound from Heaven. The kora and the Gambian drum are old by African standards, but to most of the western civilization they haven't been seen or heard.

Sona Jobarteh, a multi-instrumentalist and singer from Gambia, comes from one of the most renowned families of African griots and kora virtuosos. She is the first woman in her family to play the instrument which in the West African tradition has been reserved only for men for the past seven centuries.

Her grandfather is Amadu Bansang Jobarteh, a celebrated griot and master of the kora. Her cousin, Toumani Diabaté, is a world-famous Malian kora virtuoso. She already started learning to play this wonderful variety of African lute when she was three.

Today, she can boast of her own records, her band and cooperation with Oumou Sangaré, Toumani Diabaté, Kassé Mady Diabaté, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, to name just a few.

Sona plays the most important griot instrument (next to the balaphon) of the Mandinka, founders of the medieval empire of West Africa. A griot is a human repository of the oral traditions of a kingdom, society or family, who shares his knowledge through words and music.

However, according to legend, it was not a man but a woman – a goddess living in the Kansala caves in Gambia – who played the first kora.

Therefore, Sona is not only an heiress of the griot tradition but also of the deity.

Being incredibly talented (she is a singer, virtuoso, and composer), she crosses the boundaries of the tradition combining, in a fascinating way, various musical styles and genres, both African and Western, to tell stories about cultural identity, womanhood and love.
