How to fight the Crime Insurgency in South Africa - Part One – A new look at crime
"The first, and absolutely indispensable, thing to do is throw overboard 99 percent of the literature on counterinsurgency, counterguerrilla, counterterrorism, and the like. Since most of it was written by the losing side, it is of little value."
Martin van Creveld, Israeli military historian in his book, “The Changing Face of War Lessons of Combat, From the Marne to Iraq”, pg 268 (2007)

So I take it you are sick of crime in South Africa. You want to do something constructive and actually STOP crime instead of just raising awareness?
If you are willing to read this series I will show you how:
“Ordinary Crime”?: Correctly identifying the problem
Politicians, the liberal media and liberal academics are in consensus that crime in South Africa is colourless, raceless, political-less and well…just “ordinary crime”.
I disagree. To me, it is clear that we are dealing with a special kind of insurgency in South Africa. A crime insurgency. It is a war where the Government is the insurgent.
Crime is not the result of Colonialism, Apartheid or Socio-economic disparities as the learned want us to believe. Crime is a tactic used in the insurgency of which the goals are exactly the same as the insurgencies the Rhodesians and Portuguese dealt with in their former African colonies and the same as in the insurgency we dealt with in South West Africa (Namibia).
The people who do not recognize it as such probably never had to deal with an insurgency before and therefore do not see it for what it is. You cannot blame them. How should a blind person recognize from the taste of an apple that it is an apple if he has never tasted, smelled, felt or seen an apple before?
Either that or they know exactly what it is and are deliberately misleading the public.
The ANC and their “Struggle” that has never stopped
We often hear ANC cadres talking about their “Struggle” and how it is not over.
Even Mandela in 1991, after he was released and Apartheid abolished, declared that The “Struggle” was not over
ANC deputy President of SA, Kgalema Motlanthe, repeated this in 1998 four years after the ANC came to power when he said: The Struggle for Democracy is not over
Julias Malema of the EFF constantly talks about the Economic Freedom "struggle" and last year even threatened an armed struggle against the ANC.
Where do they get this word “Struggle” from?
It is a Vietnamese word “Dau Tranh” meaning “The Struggle” and it is the Vietnamese version of Moa Tse Tung’s Communist insurgency model. Dr. Anthea Jeffrey exposed this at length in her book “People’s War” where she shows how the ANC went to Vietnam in the 1970’s and adopted the insurgency techniques there from General Vo Nguyen Giap who defeated first the French and then the Americans.
The ANC’s cadres are telling us every day that they have never stopped their insurgency. All we have to do is listen.
Robert Pape in his book Dying to win: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism explains that 95% of terrorist attacks are part of a coordinated campaign. Bear that in mind when we will look at the South African model shortly. But first a case study.
An insurgency of a special kind - Zimbabwe: A case study
No insurgency is exactly the same and this is what makes it so difficult to define, but there are similarities and parallels between what happened in Zimbabwe and what is happening in South Africa.
Robert Mugabe and his ZANU-PF insurgents came to power in 1980. For a while it went well. According to the Lancaster House Agreement, he could not touch land for ten years. People thought the insurgency was over. Mugabe had to keep up a front and appear to be a model for South Africa and Namibia who weren’t “liberated” yet.
Mugabe held back until the ANC was unbanned and in 1992 introduced the Land Acquisition Act. Eight years later, after the term of Mandela in February 2000, Mugabe started his insurgency again and stole the land from the White farmers. 4000 White farmers were virtually penniless overnight.
He did not use the regular army, because they can be held responsible under the Geneva Convention. Mugabe knows how to go around the Geneva Convention. His private army of “War veterans”, most of who were young and born after 1980, dressed in civilian clothes, attacked white owned farms and drove the farmers out.
Here we see a democratically elected government becoming the insurgents. Actually they have always been the insurgents and have never given up or stopped being insurgents. They were just dormant for a while as part of a larger strategy and campaign.
For the Marxist terrorist and paranoid psychopath, Mugabe, it was not enough to be in power. He still saw the white Zimbabweans as the ones REALLY in power and a possible enemy. They still had too much economical clout and could raise an army and revolt. They had to be completely broken and destroyed. His insurgency campaign would only be over once the last white person was driven out of Zimbabwe and all the stolen land belonged to him.
In Zimbabwe we saw that politics, negotiations and so-called “Democracy” never brought an end to the Marxist insurgency. It only succeeded in bringing the insurgents into the country. They now have their bases in the townships on the doorsteps of the whites. The townships are now their safe borders from where they operate.
South Africa’s crime insurgency
Likewise in South Africa. The ANC and PAC were former Marxist terrorists who fought an insurgency against the white South African government. They also had a bullshit “Political Cause” namely “Apartheid” just like Mugabe had “Colonialism”.
The ANC is now in power through a Troika with the SA Communist Party and the COSATU trade unions and as we can see, they are not much interested in good governance. They are just interested in self enrichment.
When F.W. de Klerk unbanned the ANC, SACP, PAC, etc. on the 2nd of February 1990 in his speech before parliament and released so-called “political prisoners” all he did was move the insurgent bases from Angola, Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania into South Africa’s townships and onto our doorsteps.
Democracy did not magically dissolve the insurgents. The insurgents never went away. They are now called “MK Veterans” and they are in a township near to you. They are training up youth militias such as Narysec at this very moment.
I have exposed this in an article in 2011 already:
The shocking Parallels between Mugabe’s ”NYS Green Bombers” and Zuma’s NARYSEC youth brigade
When one looks at the way shopping mall robberies, cash in transit robberies, ATM bombings, etc. are carried out (with military precision), then one cannot help but notice that these “criminals” are military trained.
Crime and insurgency often goes together such as the FARC “Narcoterrorists” of Colombia who fund their insurgency from drugs, kidnappings, bank robberies, etc.
When one observes the terror of black “criminals” against white people in farm attacks or home invasions where vulnerable, elderly whites are horrifically and cowardly tortured for hours and often nothing stolen, then one cannot help but see the parallels with the Rhodesian insurgency prior to 1980 and the Zimbabwean insurgency after 2000. There is no difference between the brutal tactics used by Zanu-PF and that used by the ANC.
black South Africans should learn from Zimbabwe’s land reform program and President Jacob Zuma who confirmed land expropriation for 2015 then one can only anticipate a land grab by Marxist insurgents in the same way as in Zimbabwe in 2000.
When one sees how President Jacob Zuma constantly sings “Kill the Boers; Kill the farmers” and “Bring me my machine gun”...How ANC members sing and chant “One settler; One bullet” and how the president says that "All South Africa’s problems started with the arrival of the white man, Jan van Riebeeck", then there is no doubt what their intentions are. Logically then, if you want to solve South Africa’s “problems”, you have to reverse the arrival of the whites in SA. You have to push them back into the sea.
From all this evidence and parallels the deduction is therefore that we are dealing here with a coordinated Marxist terrorist insurgency and therefore need to fight it as such.
