Energy, our main focus since the Oil crisis of the 1970 we have invested in Nuclear power, yet has the Oil crisis was over we focused once again on Oil!
Now that we are in the middle of a new Oil crisis much worth than the previous one, many such has Canada, the USA, China, Japan and especially France and GB focus once again on Nuclear power!
Planning to build many new Nuclear Power station around the World, some already under way in Canada, the USA and France as well as China the demand for raw URANIUM is rising!
Germany, Sweden are not going back into Nuclear power though, they are closing more and more Nuclear Power stations since the 1990, mainly because no one knows what to do with the Toxic waste, that is being stored in salt mines and in some cases just dumped into the Ocean, providing us with a ticking time bomb for future generations!
Why the next Energy crisis? Simple, we get most of our Uranium from Australia about 45% and from Niger about 40%, making Australia and Niger the main two Uranium sources in the World today!
The Problem is that the Uranium in Niger is in the Air Mountain, the home of the Tuaregs, that lived there for now over 2000 years and so far no one cared much about them since where they live is the middle of the Sahara dessert!
How ever the Tuareg have been a minority in Niger whose main population the Haussalives in the far south along the great Niger River, controlling, politics, government, Army and Police.
The Tuaregs demand equal rights and Schools, even to be part of the Government and to be allowed to have a say what as to watt is to be done with their home land and theirfuture!
The 3 to 4 Million Tuaregs are however subdue by the FAN (Niger's Armed Forces) Since the Government in Niamey is not willing to grand them even a hearing!
This constant discrimination and oppression has broth the Tuaregs to rebel! At first with a Political party of their own, the MNJ (Niger's movement for Justice), this party was however outlawed by the Niger Government and the party leaders put in prison as well as any Journalist that dared to writ about there demands and goals for justice for al people in Niger!
The Tuareg where forced to work in the Uranium mines and supposed to stay silent or be silenced by force! This was the beginning of the Tuareg uprising in Niger!
The Tuaregs have been persecuted ever since they dared to speak up and to speak out and every day civilians get arrested, tortured and often killed. Many of the victims are Children and most helpless against their aggressor the FAN (Niger's Armed Forces).
The FAN (Nigers's Armed Forces) As reportedly poisoned wells and water holes ecensial and only water source for the Tuaregs and their life stock, killing them by the dozents since those water hole and well are the gold of the dessert and absolutely vital for the Nomads and the villagers, such actions by them self are genocide to a people and the FAN and the Niger Government needs to be put on trial in an international court for such crimes!
The Uranium mines may soon be no more since the MNJ intends to blow them up so that the FAN has no longer a source of revenue used to surprise the Tuareg.
Since the USA, Canada, France, GB and China as well as Japan do have a great Hunger for Uranium for their Nuclear Power Stations they want to make sure the supply does not dry out!
There for supporting Niger's Government and the FAN with advise and Weapons as well as training and Mercenaries to fight the Tuaregs and rid them self of of those since 4 of the Countries in need of Uranium also have veto power in the UNO security counsel it is very unlikely that the Tuaregs will ever get heard nor have even a remote chance to survive this Genocide!
Unless the Public through out the World listens and cries out! Why no news comes out or barely any since the Country in need of Uranium want a cheep and steady supply of the this energy source, none is interested in Justice even less in Human Rights, after all they are only 3 to 4 Million Tuaregs left all over North West Africa and who will care.
No one did for darfour really, or Rwanda and even less for Zimbabwe now that China and Russia have vetoed any UN sanction against Zimbabwe the chance that any one would care about the Genocide committed against the Tuaregs in Niger before it will be to late any how, is rather remote.
We need our energy more and the Price of our energy supply does not allow for Human rights nor do the Tuareg matter enough for us to care about their faith as long as we get cheep Uranium out of Niger!
However should the Tuareg succeed in destroying the Uranium Mines, we in the West may have to pay dearly for energy and run out of Uranium!
Are we really that shallow in the Western Nations as to led Genocide be happening before our eyes just so we may have enough cheep Uranium for our self's?
