    War and Terror: Innocent Kenyan Blood Drips from Imperial Hands
    By Mark P. Fancher
    October 06, 2013 - blackagendareport.com

    “There has been speculation that the U.S. drive to dominate Somalia’s oil supply has prompted an interest in perpetual instability and division within the country.”

    A 2011 report prepared for members of Congress lacks significant references to Kenya, but it details eye-opening events in Somalia that set the stage for the recent attack on a Kenyan shopping mall. The Congressional Research Service (CRS) report, titled “Somalia: Current Conditions and Prospects for a Lasting Peace” also contains facts that allow readers to conclude that much of the innocent blood shed by shoppers killed by al-Shabaab militants drips from western imperialist hands.

    The recent shopping mall attack was reportedly in retaliation for Kenya’s participation in military operations against al-Shabaab in Somalia in 2011. Al-Shabaab became a force in Somalia after a 2006 military operation that dislodged a government run by “The Islamic Courts Union,” a network of tribunals that administered Islamic law. In 2006, the U.S. State Department’s point person for African affairs was Jendayi Frazer, and she was quoted as saying: “The top layer of the [Islamic Courts Union] courts are extremist to the core. They are terrorists and they are in control.”

    African Diaspora: Who's pushing ongoing violence in Kenya?
    By Lee Sustar
    February 8, 2008

    AS KENYAN politicians maneuvered in peace talks, the death toll topped 1,000 as the result of violence that followed Kenya's rigged elections in late December. At least 300,000 people more are living in refugee camps.

    The latest wave of killings was reportedly carried out by members of the Kikuyu ethnic group, of which Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki is a member. Kikuyus had themselves been the victims of the initial violence carried out by members of the Luo ethnic group, which opposition leader Raila Odinga of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) is a member of.

    African Diaspora: Kenyan crisis: West's hand visible
    By Reason Wafawarova
    January 09, 2008

    Kenya has started 2008 with a bloodbath that has clearly overshadowed the spilling of Benazir Bhutto's blood at the end of December in Pakistan.

    Both Kenya and Pakistan were electioneering at the end of 2007 with Kenya holding its plebiscite on December 27, shortly before descending into freestyle post election killings while Pakistan's poll that had been scheduled for January 8 was ruined by some daring suicide bomber who reportedly took his own life together with that of Benazir Bhutto, the Western approved democracy torch bearer in the electoral race.

    Benazir Bhutto's democratic credentials might have been fantastic in the eyes of her Western backers, particularly in Washington's eyes, but this writer will insist that her decision to direct through a will that in the event of her death, her son should assume the leadership of her party is what is called monarchy and certainly not democracy.

    African Diaspora: Behind the turmoil in Kenya
    January 08, 2008

    The protests and riots that followed the "stolen election" have shown the depth of discontent in a "stable" African country, writes Ken Olende

    Rioting began in Kenya after sitting president Mwai Kibaki was declared winner in presidential elections on 27 December. Opposition leader Raila Odinga challenged the result, accusing the ruling party of ballot rigging.

    Odinga's popularity had grown out of discontent with the ruling elite. In many poor areas demonstrators took to the streets in anger at the "stolen election".

    The notorious GSU internal security forces killed scores of people as they opened fire on protests around the country. They are responsible for the majority of deaths that have occurred in the last few weeks.
