You need to buy this magazine. And I really mean that.
Soldier of Fortune may not be a magazine you usually read or subscribe to. It’s not on my regular reading list, either. But there are two articles in there this month that everyone really needs to read.
It’s fairly common knowledge that James Earl Carter IV, the 39th President of the United States, is something of a mislead moron at best. He short-shrift’s our allies while consorting with our enemies. The list of terrorists, thugs, and mass-murderers that Carter has spoken to, let alone negotiated with, is stunning. From Hamas to Hezbollah to Yasir Arafat to Robert Mugabe, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Il . . . it’s simply astonishing. It goes an entire generation beyond naivete; it thrusts deeply into the heart of willfully seeking out and consorting with purely evil, EVIL people.
The articles in SOF are by a former Green Beret Captain Joseph C. Smith. He fought for the Rhodesians in the war for 37 months and watched as the CIA actively subverted the democratic process in Rhodesia. As the Rhodesian people were in the process of an orderly transition from minority white rule to democratic selection of their leaders, Carter and his minions were actively working to overturn democracy there. They confirm what a lot of us had suspected; Carter not only betrayed Rhodesia, but actively sabotaged the Democratic process there by using CIA assets to destroy the free elections outcome there.
A brief niblet:
During that magic time “window,” 1977-1980, when the USA might have made a positive difference in Africa’s future, President Jimmy Carter made a fatal — for Africa — wrong turn. President Carter and his Africa point man, Andrew Young, big champions of Marxist Robert Mugabe, decided to ignore Rhodesia’s first majority election and bullied the United Kingdom to do likewise.
Black moderate and anti-communist Bishop Abel Muzorewa clearly won that election (54 percent of the vote) to become Zimbabwe’s first black Prime Minister in 1979.
So why did President Carter hang with Mugabe, by far the mos sinister of all possible choices? Because Mugabe was the candidate recommended by Mugabe’s one-party “thugocracy” despots in neighboring African countries.
Carter. An American President. Un-freaking-believable. Truly a weasel among weasels. While this article analyzes the betrayal of Rhodesia to the Marxist thug Mugabe, the other relates some of Smith’s experiences with the CIA personally during the war and how they betrayed Americans in Zimbabwe and Smith personally long after the war was over.
Well worth your time. Run out and pick one up at your local Borders or wherever.
