Angola Fortifies Positions in Namibia
November 10, 2009
-- Unconfirmed sources
indicate that Angola's military units inside Namibia are digging in
along the 100 mile track of land they carved out following their
invasion of that country. Sources
state the soldiers are constructing fortified positions, laying
minefields, and setting up checkpoints around the lucrative diamond
mines that were seized.
Namibia's military lacked the strength to oppose the initial
invasion and is only now conducting limited raids on very weak enemy
Angolan troops rest by defensive
position near protected diamond mine
condemnation and pressure continues, but for now Angola's leader, General
Yuhu, seems to be turning a blind eye and deaf ear to these
protests. With control of
the diamond mines, General Yuhu has promised his people a new beginning
for a brighter future.
The loss of the diamond mines will cause Namibia to face severe economic
losses in the near future. Experts
predict severe budget shortfalls that could result in food, power, and
medical shortages that might spell disaster for the Namibian people.
