Il est à noter qu’Arte peut se permettre ce film car cela fait une centaine d’années que Léopold II est mort mais le génocide au Congo ne s’est pas arrêté avec la mort de Léopold II. Enviant à la Belgique les richesses du Congo, le Canada, les États-Unis, la France, le Royaume Uni, l’Allemagne, la Chine, Israël, le Liban, l’Australie etc. se sont mis de la partie et participent actuellement au génocide lucratif en RDC [voir 1 2 3 4] (en fait c’est la communauté internationale toute entière qui viole le Congo), génocide qui de par son envergure éclipse même l’Holocauste de la Seconde Guerre et le Génocide rwandais: depuis 1998 seulement, entre 3 millions et 5 millions de personnes sont mortes des conflits au Congo, plus de 17 000 enfants soldats ont été recrutés et le viole des femmes est devenu systématique. Voici un extrait de congopanorama à ce sujet:

Rape has become a defining characteristic of the five-year war in the DRC, according to Anneke Van Woudenberg, the Congo specialist for Human Rights Watch. So, too, has mutilation of the victims.

« Last year, I was stunned when a 30-year-old woman in North Kivu had her lips and ears cut off and eyes gouged out after she was raped, so she couldn’t identify or testify against her attackers. Now, we are seeing more and more such cases, » she says.

As the troops of coccupation from Rwanda and Uganda constantly sought new ways to terrorize, their barbarity became more frenzied.

I, too, was sickened by what I saw and heard. In three decades of covering war, I had never before come across the cases described to me by Congolese doctors, such as gang-rape victims having their labia pierced and then padlocked.

« They usually die of massive infection, » I was told.

Based on personal testimonies collected by Human Rights Watch, it is estimated that as many as 30 percent of rape victims are sexually tortured and mutilated during the assaults, usually with spears, machetes, sticks or gun barrels thrust into their vaginas.

Increasingly, the trigger is being pulled. About 40 percent of rape victims, usually the younger ones, aged 8 to 19, are abducted and forced to become sex slaves.

« The country is in an utter state of lawlessness; it’s complete anarchy, » says Woudenberg. « In this culture of impunity, people know they can get away with anything. Every armed group is equally culpable. »

In the Congo, rape is a cheaper weapon of war than bullets. Experts estimate that some 60 percent of all combatants in the DRC are infected with HIV/AIDS. As women rarely have access to expensive antiretroviral drugs, sexual assaults all too often become automatic death sentences.

Médecins Sans Frontières operates five health clinics offering antiretrovirals in the conflict zone of northeastern DRC, but many women don’t know about the drugs and cannot travel safely to the centers. Moreover, according to Helen O’Neill, a nurse who set up MSF’s sexual-violence treatment program, such drugs must be taken within forty-eight to seventy-two hours of the rape to prevent infection.

If a woman has been exposed to the virus, the treatment is 80 percent effective. But in the Congo, rape victims who are not captive sex slaves must walk for days or weeks, often with massive injuries, and risk new capture by roving rebel bands, before reaching assistance.

Et voici une adaptation française de la première partie faite par James:


Notes:

It is not the «central banking system» which is a problem as such but the fractional reserve banking system. The USA is a notable exception but most countries’ central bank (including the UK now) is owned by the governement and redistributes its profites to the governement.

Warburg = Warburg Pincus + M.M. Warburg&Co + UBS

Rockefeller = Exxon (ex-Standard Oil) + JP Morgan Chase

John Pierpont Morgan = JP Morgan Chase + Morgan Stanley + Deutsche Bank +USX (ex US-Steel)

I.G. Farben = Agfa+BASF+Bayer+Aventis

Washington Post= 18% Berkshire Hathaway, 7% JP Morgan, Barclay’s 2% etc.

New York Times Co. = 22% T. Rowe Price, 7% Morgan Stanley, 10% Fidelity Inv., 5% Barclay’s, etc.

Time magazine = Time Warner

Clarifications from the makers of the film:

15:25-15:27
The December 25th birthday denoted to Jesus Christ, as stated by the narration, is not written in the Bible, although it is practiced traditionally. However, this date, known in the Pagan world for the birth of the ‘Sun God’ at the Winter Solstice, is in fact implied by the astronomical symbolism during the birth sequence.
More on this point is addressed in the Interactive Transcript.

53:56-53:59
The text reads:
[« Collapse Characteristics of World T. Center 1, 2 & 7 fit the Controlled Demolition Model Exactly »]
-WTC 7 fits the C.D. model exactly, however Towers 1 and 2 were, in fact, EXPLOSIONS rather than implosions. The means of the demolition of Towers 1 and 2 would be considered « unconventional ». The free fall speed; collapse « into its own footprint » and other such goals of controlled demolition, are however confluent.

1:04:09 -1:04:16
The video here is of the Madrid Bombings of 2004, not the London Bombings of 2005.
It is used as a creative expression and example.

1:09:22- 1:11:05
These extracts from the JFK speech entitled « The President and the Press » from April 27, 1961,
are used as a dramatized introduction to Part 3, and are not exactly in context with the original intent
of JFK’s speech. Though President Kennedy does indeed address the peril of secrecy, denouncing

« secret societies », « secret oaths » and « secret proceedings » in his statements, the latter section is
related to his views on Communism and not these societies.

1:17:14-1:17:20:
The narration states regarding W.Wilson and the Federal Reserve Act:
« Years Later Woodrow Wilson wrote in regret… »
– The notion of « years later » is incorrect. The quote is taken from his book
« The New Freedom » and it was written the same year he signed the Federal Reserve Act.

1:23:35 -1:23:38
There are 2 errors stated in the narration, one computational, the other technical.
1) It should say: (correction in italics) « Roughly 25% of the average worker’s income is taken via this tax »
[According the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average US salary is about $36,000
which translates to a 25% Federal Income Tax. * 35% is the high tax bracket ]

2) This 25% is not a flat tax against the entire income of that single person for the year.
Rather, the tax is « graduated ». In other words, it is a generalization to say « 25% is taxed », where as there are 2 tax rate brackets under this one, and income is taxed based on each bracket combined, in a graduated manner. Consequently, the statement « you work 3 months out of the year… » is not accurate as it would be less than that in light of the « graduated » nature.

1:27.35-1:27:40:
There is a statement error in the narration. It should say: (correction in italics)
-« J.D. Rockefeller made 200 million dollars off of it [WWI]. That’s about 1.9 Billion by today’s standards »
[It was stated as « 1.9 Trillion », which was misspoken and intended to have been read « Billion », not « Trillion ».
Note: Based on the Consumer Price Index (not the GDP used initially), this conversion can also be figured
at about 3 Billion dollars]
