Katanga: The Untold Story of a U.N. Betrayal (1962)
as related by Congressman Donald L. Jackson
This is the story of how the U.N., from 1960 to 1962, waged an unprovoked war against the peaceful state of Katanga and forced it under the control of the Communist state of the Central Congo (now called Zaire). Top U.N. personnel boasted in their public speeches and memoirs of how they pretended to be preserving law and order while actually carrying out a military operation to crush the tiny nation, all in the name of peace. The great irony in this was that the free world was told – and the American people firmly believed – that the U.N. army had been sent to the Congo to “protect it from Communism.” The reason this story needs to be told after all these years is that we have not seen the last of the U.N. so-called peace-keeping forces. Unless the further development of what is called the New World Order can be stopped, we are going to see a U.N. army used more and more to bring its peculiar brand of peace to the world. The best way to envision the future is to know the past. Black-and-white film. 1991 introduction by G. Edward Griffin.
