(008274.77-E001840.93NAVRLOSUC20V)[When they say that the fire at the military base was started by people from an "informal settlement" nearby – they mean BLACKS. Of course whether Blacks outside the base started the fire or whether some cause is due to the military itself …. who knows! The bottom line is 200 military vehicles caught fire. As for me, I really don't care. Anything that weakens this anti-White government is good for me. They say the vehicles were already unserviceable beforehand – but that is very likely due to the incompetence of the military itself. There are tens of thousands of vehicles that were not functioning in the military and they were using Cubans to come and fix them. All in all, the South African Military looks like a clown show. I like that. It's better that way. Jan]
