(Harold Wilson: “would accept half a million dead Biafrans if that was what it took...”)
JUST who is Harold Wilson who is so contumelious to go on record to call for the genocide of Igbo people of Biafra, 3150 miles away in southwestcentral Africa, 23 years after the end of the perpetration of the horrendous Jewish genocide by Germany in Europe in which it murdered 6 million Jews and 20 years after the declaration of the seminal 1948 UN convention on the crime of genocide (see UN “Convention on the Prevention of the Crime of Genocide”, [https://treaties.un.org/doc/publication/unts/volume%2078/volume-78-i-1021-english.pdf], accessed 12 October 2017)?
15. Harold Wilson’s government’s diplomatic mission military advisor in genocidist Nigeria at the time, Robert Scott, acknowledges his employer’s empirical evidence albeit linguistically (at the height of the genocide, mid 1968- January 1970) that as the Nigerian genocidists unleashed their campaigns across Biafran cities, towns and villages, they are the “best defoliant agent known” (Sunday Telegraph, London, 11 January 1970)
Igbo resilient spirit
What has evidently underpinned the tenets of Harold Wilson’s very brazen role as this advocate of mass-slaughtering-of-a-people in the world of mid/late 1960s is his sheer confidence of a stunning “victory” in his mission: Harold Wilson believes fervently that given all the power at his disposal, and these are indeed immense, as we have shown, he will destroy Igbo people… There is, however, one feature in this outstretched power resource, a critical one for that matter, which Wilson is not in control of. Harold Wilson has no access to the resilient spirit of Igbo people, that forte that ensures Igbo survival of the genocide.
BY SURVIVING the genocide, the Igbo have not only repudiated the gruesome Wilsonian logic of Igbo mass slaughter most assuredly, but they are poised today, 52 years later, as the Biafra freedom movement has grown inexorably, to resume the interrupted construction of their beloved state of Biafra – the Land of the Rising Sun.
