It's in every technology that requires a computer chip: computers, cell phones, satellites and weapon systems, of course. Without it, virtually the whole mobile electronic empire collapses.
Know which country sits atop the largest coltan deposits in the world?
The Democratic Republic of Congo. So Bechtel, the CitiBank boys, the World Bank, IMF and various covert elements have been supplying brutal regime after brutal regime in the region. Well over four million and counting have died there.
Joseph Mobutu, the last President-for-life, was installed after the elimination of Patrice Lumumba, in the '60s, by John Negroponte and the CIA.
Mobutu was one of the cruelist, craziest, richest dictators in the whole world. He presided (with USer aid and assistance) over the deaths of more than a million of his countryfellows in order to retain his position, until his death 10 years ago. An example of his corruption: He required a deposit into Swiss accounts in his name of amounts equal to the whole nationa debt of the country, as a bribe to permit certain firms to continue resource development. Since his death, there has not been an effective central Govt. in the country and internecine warfare proliferates in just about all the country's 27 'states.'
These are just a few of the interesting facts contained in "Confessions of a Covert Agent:
Once the resource is identified, special ops figures out the most efficient way to suppress or extinguish the population that is unfortunate enough to live near it. Then the big companies come in, from the United Fruit Company to the Bechtels and Halliburtons of the world. That is the way it has been and still is, from John D. Rockefeller and Allen Dulles right through Kissinger, Bush Sr. and Cheney. Millions of innocent civilians have been slaughtered. Let me repeat that: Millions of innocent civilians have been slaughtered. And I'm not kidding you. These are evil motherfuckers and they are no friends of ours. These things don't have anything to do with protecting the US people or standing up for freedom and democracy. They don't give a shit about the average American. In this age of the global economy, the concept of nation state is obsolete. If only proud Americans could understand that. Pride in the American way is just another propaganda device for PsyOps agents — people like me — to use to manipulate you and make you think that black is white and white is black.There's more. Go to the link. It's not like nobody's ever revealed these things before; but it's still enough to make an orc puke.
