One of the most diabolical inventions of the last century — concentration camps. You think to this day that they were invented by fascists? Wrong. Hitler was a known Anglophile, therefore and so subtle means of wiping out the human nature he took a loan from his own British friends.
First concentration camp was invented and built in the British period, the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902.
The Boers — it is the poor and uneducated peasants of South Africa, mostly immigrants from the Netherlands, who did not want to submit to the totalitarian regime of the English Crown, and paid for that with their lives. Not surprisingly, that the victory in the terrible and bloody war won British Empire. Offend feeble colonial invaders was not the first time.
The usual ruthless British victory was not enough, therefore for the first time in human history, they have used against the poor farmers strategy of scorched earth.
This is such a method of fighting, when destroyed all that is in the enemy area. Generally speaking, all, including shelter, communications, industry, and so on.
In addition to this, the British invented concentration camps perdition, in which two years killed about 30,000 Boer women and children.
All business consisted, as usual, in the geopolitical interests of Britain. The path to the fabulously rich in India just exactly led by the African coast. The interests of the Crown always stood above all humane values, and therefore had to today's "rights advocates" of a person to occupy the lands of others, and they reincarnate in another colony.
Recognizable by writer and traveler Mark Twain wrote about the drills:
"The Boers are very pious, profoundly ignorant, stupid, stubborn, intolerant, unscrupulous, friendly, honest in relationships with white, cruel to his black servants … they really do not care what's going on in the world."
Naturally, it was necessary to "educate" and "civilize" the ignorant people. Particularly acute for the British, this need has become when the terrain was open naikrupneyshee Boers at the time deposits of diamonds. The natural resources of other countries always tore them down.
Not enough, when in 1886 the Transvaal were found richest gold mines, the issue of the second colonial war against the people malehankih became virtually a foregone conclusion. The thirst for wealth and human blood was so superior that by the summer of 1900 (just after year after the war), both the capital of the Boer (Free State and Transvaal) were taken by the British.
The next two years war become a thing of the Boer guerrillas. All the inhabitants, who were suspected to promote guerrilla, mercilessly punished — burned their farms and put in a concentration camp. Nothing recalls? And that's not all. To crush the last vestiges of liberty the British invented a system of blockhouses (bunkers), which threw all the Putnam thread. I do not know about you, but in front of my eyes get up pictures of books and films about the Second World War.
In the end, 31 May 1902 at Pretoria borax bonded signed a contract in which their countries have recognized the annexation of the British Empire.
When now the West will hear and attacks on Russia's recognition of the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia after the reflection of the Georgian aggression in 2008, it is just fun. Who is most shouts of his own innocence? Anyone who feels guilty. Because the realities of today's world and the United States is so intense forms the world on a wide range of public policy issues. Therefore "Independent" media so intensively watered gryazyuku their opponents in any case, and the "independent" fund sponsor "opposition" of unwanted different states. Therefore, when they behold the like in real life is perfectly free countries, but here there are trying to bring "democracy" means revolutionary chaos and destroy the foundations of statehood.
I think that is not casual Georgian Hitler used the same strategy of scorched earth in the genocide of Ossetians in August 2008. Teachers had apparently been experienced in the present case. Not only ties have been taught.
But it is not all that bad. Due to the wide spread of the Web people can find out the truth. Can join forces and try to change something. All lurking always becomes apparent and walk in sheep's clothing to our "partners" is long.
