A succession of very sad post, written in tears ...

Elefanten

Some might be dead already ...

Elefanten

… The Garamba N. P. ...

IT’S A DRAMA, HAPPENING RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES, I will follow it closely and tell you from time to time all of the actual stages of the doom of these wonderful animals. Fifth chapter: Let’s visit the Garamba National Park in the (so-called) Democratic Republic of Congo. 160 rangers protect the nation’s last elephants. 13 were murdered by poachers, trying to safe the animals! There might be more victims in the meantime, but we won’t know, some forces, heavily involved in the ivory trade, release figures of casualties very reluctantly only. The country is torn between a shaky official government and the rebels of the „Lord’s Resistance Army“ (what a perverted name!), led for years by the murderous Joseph Kony, an Ugandan on whose head („Dead or Alive“) the USA put a reward of 5 million dollar.

…and the horrible Joseph Kony

He is the main link between the slaughter of elephants and the ivory trade for arms. Even worse: Kony enslaved, so the UN published, 66 000 (!) children for sex, trained them as killers and – most important – made „donkeys“ of them in the illicit ivory trade, dragging the heavy tusks through the jungle to meeting points with the agents of the forbidden trade. It’s questionable if there are many elephants left in this country, and – Kony’s power is spreading into Uganda and the Central African Republic as well, his army gets bigger and bigger, alongside the need for weapons, therefore he kills elephants not in one but in three countries. And does anyone really believe Knoy „exports“ the tusks on jungle paths alone? No way, he uses airports and -strips, run by governments, with the approval of corrupt and greedy politicians. Find out what I have to say from now on in my Blog, giving you the inside informations on the war between a strong but helpless creature and the weak but ruthless human killers …
