No, no. It's a disaster! It's the end. The Trotskyites who escaped the Soviet implosion are coming out of hiding to subvert SA. Buy your airline tickets now before you're blocked by the round-the-block queues that will inevitably form like happened with the fall of Singapore to the Japs in WW2 ... 8-[ :lol:

Today - "Ace M" described the ongoing spate of violent protests in parts of the country as criminality – NOT xenophobia. :arrow:

With the recent riots and people being burned alive just for kicks, I am starting to wonder if there is not maybe a force at work with plans to over through the authority....

Looks to me like a co-ordinated attack to test the response of law enforcement.

If, like now response is fairly retrained and no harsh punishment dished out to law breakers, it can give the impression that the next step by the lawless is a go.

I may just be paranoid, but counter intelligence has taught me to always look for an enemy behind the bush.

Theuns, it looks like you understand military intelligence as well. I say look further afield at what is happening around the world. This is text book SOP of a certain 3 letter alphabet agency and compare to say Hong Kong or Venezuela or any country friendly with China or Russia. Follow Eeben, who I regard as one of the very best military leaders this country has produced, he has
some very interesting views.

I really hope my paranoia is unfounded and this is simply criminals, that can be dealt with relatively easy, if there is a deeper political undertone it might be harder to curb.

You are so right. Go read Eeban Barlows blog of April 2019. We have the knowledge and the people to turn the country around but are we willing to do so ?

Conspiracy theories I tell you, Conspiracy theories.

It’s just poor people being unjustly treated in the past, and YOU should fix it, where’s your moral compass?

He also said this....
“We must never despise people who have the same skin colour as us. Their colour, whether they are people from Mozambique or Angola or Nigeria or everywhere in the 54 countries in Africa... you must know you are an African,” Magashule said according to a video clip posted on Facebook page named Supporters of Ace Magashule.

He then turned and said there are many others who have got “whitish color” the crowd don’t know about.

“They are there, you see them all (the) time but you can’t say this one likwer*kw*re, this one comes from somewhere else. They are here in this country. They have never been attacked and they are so-called foreigners because their colour is white,” Magashule also said in the video

Both riots and protests have spiked in two clear steps in SA, the 1st was 2007-late 2011, and then from that point it escalated to a new level to date. Almost tripling in incidence at times, compared to the 2007-2011 time line. That much is known. :idea:

Hard to say what the trend will do going forward. As you have to know what informs the spikes. that said - theres a slant toward the more violent forms of "protest" in SA, radicalization of a part of the population?

In old terms - its pretty clear that "PBs are getting rustless" more "rustless" than ever, observed over time frame of 20 years.

Its a land full of possibility... :lol: :twisted:
