I will give you a first hand account. Not from a book, not from 'hear say' but first hand from someone who served in the SADF in many places. Our aim was to keep peace between rival Inkatha (Zulu's) and ANC (Xhosa's) As a soldier during that time I can also say, yes, children sometimes were killed. During my time I know of one child which died during crossfire.I am sure there was other incidents and you get individuals that's like loose cannons. However, it was not official SADF policy.Let's make that clear. Sad as it is it was a firefight and not deliberate. That said I can also say we came across many more children that died by the hands of fellow black citizens. Necklaced. Petrol poured over them and set alight.
So yes, this did happen, BUT I would be very careful as to call it 'genocide' as what you are implying is the SADF 'went out to kill children' and that is definitely not true. Like in any war, from Iraq to Afghanistan you hear the same thing.
If you have questions by all means contact me and I will gladly help with research. However, I believe in the truth, and truth does not beat personal experience.
Never, Ever forget the atrocities committed by ANC members against their own, which makes the SADF issues look like a drop in a bucket.
Not for sensitive viewers. Rest her soul.
you should reply by e-mail privately.
You were a soldier receiving orders. You don't know even half of the truth.
And that you tube video, doesn't have anything to do with the topic
those are their laws.
Just like you have electric chairs and lethal jabs.
Bringing forth this issue in the forum, doesn't look good at all.
Keep it private!
I can only guess you have never been to Africa because such a statement is really ignorant. American by any chance?
If you would like to educate yourself add me on facebook.
You want my name? I am Henri Le Riche. I am not spineless like so many people in the world. I hate double standards and 'pc' bullshit.
If I do not know what I am talking about. I keep my mouth shut. Full stop. When I say what I said there take it for what it's meant. I am a white African and I know more than African Americans and whites in the US, unfortunately. The articles use words like 'genocide' and wants to make out like it was army policy.I, personally, would not have stood for something like that, and neither would my fellow soldiers or officers. Its similar to American soldier raping women in Iraq or Afghanistan. Is it official US policy to do that? I am sure it isn't, but you do not have control over individual actions. Right?
Rather make use of the something and try to learn. I am fed up with individuals spreading their venom over the internet at the expense of minorities in South Africa and go on like they knew what was happening. They didn't.
I was a special forces soldier with 'black' officers. Yes. You hear me right. And 'their rules' is the most absurd thing I heard because my officers found it as barbaric as any normal person would.
Apologies if You're a nice person and I go off but I am fed-up with people with 'opinions'. There's only one problem in this world and it's people that 'think' they know what they're talking about. Too many 'opinions' and not a single bit experience to back it up.

I still think you know half.
The issue here is your post. Why don't you discuss this privately with the hubber????
Bringing forward this issue is not sensible.
So I don't think you deserve my attention.
Good day to you !

Is the United States a Police State ?Almost every week you can read something in the news about violent behaviour of policeman. If you would ask a black person if they trusted the police, the answer would be in most cases No. Which isn't strange if you know that 40% of the inmates is black...
