Genocide by British and American Militaries in Diego Garcia Even Today
Posted on June 27th, 2016
Depopulation and genocide of people in Diego Garcia islands is one of the most foul acts of war crimes in modern world. It is a continuing shame on humanity. In 1966 the British government depopulated the islands to lease out the island to the US government for a military base.
A diplomatic Cable signed by DA Greenhill, dated August 24, 1966 states: “Unfortunately along with the birds go some few Tarzans or Man Fridays whose origins are obscure, and who are hopefully being wished on to Mauritius etc. When this has been done I agree we must be very tough and a submission is being done accordingly.”
This clearly shows the callous disregard of human value. Unfortunately this continues to this day as the two countries prevent natives from returning to their nation.
However, they don’t miss a chance to find fault with other nations over war crimes and even non-existent war crimes. The islands are used continuously to commit horrendous crimes on women and children in Afghanistan and Iraq. The world must rally around displaced people since 1966 and demand they are given their islands.
Occupation of these islands must end soon and they must be handed back to the people.
