The Battle of Cuito Cuanavale (1987 – 1988) in South West Africa is airbrushed out of the conventional history books and mainstream media. Yet, the conflict was Africa’s greatest clash of arms since the Battle of El Alamein took place during World War II on October 23 – 11 November 1942.

Cuban President Fidel Castro was picked by the Kremlin to teach Angola’s rebellious Portuguese community a lesson at the end of a bayonet. Whilst the world was distracted by the phoney Cold War in Europe, Washington and Moscow worked in harmony to affect the transfer of power from Portuguese Angola and Mozambique to Black rule managed by Wall Street banking corporations.

During the transfer, Angolan and Mozambique Portuguese colonists waged a brave but futile struggle against tremendous odds. During the transition, most of the terrorist outrages committed against the Portuguese and African communities went unreported by the West’s mainstream media.

Cuito Cuanavale.

The Battle of Cuito Cuanavale took place in Angola and was one of the greatest and decisive battles in African history. The conflict hardly made the mainstream media’s small print columns. It has been said that this anomaly was because the outcome of the battle was a setback and humiliation for those backing the Washington Moscow pincer movement on colonial Africa.

The purpose of the Soviet-backed FAPLA (Peoples Armed Forces of Liberation of Angola) the onslaught was to take control of the Cuito Cuanavale military airfield and to take the townships of Jamba and Mavinga controlled by UNITA, the National Union for Total Independence of Angola. Eight FAPLA brigades gathered for an offensive dubbed Operação Saludando Octubre.

As the battle commenced the odds were not in favour of the defenders as the forces of FAPLA arraigned against them were 50,000 strong. FAPLA’s troops were heavily supported by well-armed and supplied mercenaries and Cuban troops.

There was also a heavy presence of Red Army officers.  The 3,000 mostly South African defenders were hardly enough to fill the spectator stands of a school’s playing fields. However, the resolve of the South Africans wrought havoc on their foes. The small defending forces succeeded in cutting down 4,600 of their Communist foe.

The South African Defence Forces lost 31 men who were killed during the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale. Also lost were three tanks, five armoured vehicles and three aircraft.  In addition to the 4,600 troops scythed, the Communists lost 94 T-62 tanks, 23 rocket launchers, 100 armoured vehicles, and nine strike aircraft filched from the Warsaw Pact Soviet colonies. The Moscow backed forces lost an estimated 1 billion South African Rands in equipment.

As an interesting aside the tactics employed by the South African Defence Forces were based on tactics inspired by Third Reich Wehrmacht Field-Marshall General Erwin Rommel when he crushed the British forces at Gazala in the Western desert. EXCERPT The Last Gladiators Michael Walsh.

  • Good show… anything that flew on the other side was flown by cubans and on the ground… quite a few Russian advisors indeed as a cherry on the cake (some later surfaced… in Monaco as bodyguards to P…….v). The SA also hit an East-German general (a Generalmajor, I believe, by the look of his shoulder boards). SA proved tops on this op… specially in keeping their railroad night trip through Namibia secret.

    Mike: I could not follow which group is which, as the article jumps from one group name to another. In high school, my parents and I vacationed for 2 weeks with a Dutch man that fought the Bloody Palmy Bastards in So. Africa and the B.P.B. were worst than jewish portray Auschwitz.

    In 1999-2000 I was in Cuba and heard their side of some stories. The elite jew left Cuba, Granda was a hospital school started by Cuba and Cuban guards stopped me at gunpoint from entering a missile silo. Perhaps THE missile’s are still there? Communism in countries is different i.e. Cuba, China, Venezuela. It is the jew Bolshevism we must banish, or to be more blunt it is any government controlled by jews like the USA today.

    • All Communism is evil. No exception. Its very intention is removal of all freedoms and rights for total control of the individual and through rule and regulation, and No Private Property. 200 Million people slaughtered by their own communist governments around the world – and that excludes Robert Mugabe’s slaughter of between 20,000 to 50,000 matabele men, women and children to end all opposition to his One Party State. And then later he started on his own tribe and the White farmers if they didn’t support ZANU against the opposition party.
      The global ‘lock-down’ coronacon is Communist in nature if not name. Dr Peter Hammond (a missionary in Cape Town) had a Polish friend who informed him this ‘lock-down’ was exactly like communist Poland when the takeover was at its worst and that this lock-down today is even worse.
      There is no identified ‘COVID-19’. There is no test in existence that can test specifically for COVID-19. All flu viruses are corona viruses so a test for ‘corona’ is a test for any flu virus and also tests positive for anyone whose had flu vaccines.

  • Oddly enough, when I was at university in the late 1970s, it was only communist newspapers in the US that covered what was going on in southern Africa, specifically in Angola and Mozambique. Despite their obvious bias, there was some coverage of the events in that region. The mainstream papers and TV and radio news were completely silent, and focused on the Israeli-Palestinian issue much of the time.

    • I believe that the reason for this non-coverage was that the rodents from Threadneedle Street did not wish well to the “White Tribe” of South Africa but were happy to encourage the ANC and the Joe Slovos and the ‘Progressive’ Hellen Suzmans (cough, cough) of this world in order to carry on plundering the wealth of Africa on a more comfortable basis via corrupt Black politicians.

    • Larry, the reason the communists in US covered the Angola Mozambique terrorist wars was because it was these communists’ wars. The US comrades liked to be kept informed as to how their marxist takeover of southern Africa was going.

  • Dr Peter Hammond (Missionary) of Cape Town stated that some of the Russian soldiers involved in the Angola war later wrote books about it. They stated that it was that war and the loss of that battle that was the turning point toward the collapse of the Soviet Union.
    The Head of the Cuban military in Angola was sentenced to death by Castro for the humiliation mass defeat of the communist Cubans. Castro himself made a fortune by being involved in the drug industry. These communist leaders are all a sham – its communism they want for us but certainly not for themselves! For themselves are privileges, high living, and the aphrodisiac of total power.
    Communism comes in many forms, all ending in total control, total lockdown permanently. The West hasn’t a clue therefore what communism looks like when they’re in it. No one reads George Orwell’s “1984” but I guess that’s because the Rockefeller Foundation that controls the General Education Boards doesn’t want us to recognize it.

    By the way Communist East Germans were right over Rhodesia’s border in Mozambique controlling and leading the terrorists against Rhodesia. This became obvious when just a handful of young Rhodesian soldiers who were in Mozambique to attack the terrorist bases did an ambush on the bush road into and out of the camp. They had been ordered to try to capture alive and take prisoner any terrorist leader and return him to Rhodesia for questioning and perhaps even ‘turning’.

    An inexperienced Rhodesian soldier straight out of training was ordered to attack any incoming vehicle with a rocket of some sort. He was out there alone and a 4 wheel drive vehicle was seen moving towards him. He hit it so accurately – too accurately – so that everyone inside went up in flames. There was no one left alive to capture. Intelligence later revealed that 5 bodies of White military were actually East German officers.

    • Yes, it was a proxy war(s) for Moscow in the late 1970s as Cubans were deployed to do the fighting. And, then there was the activity in the former German Southwest Africa colony now known as Namibia. The South Africans at the time were right to fight against these communists.

      My reading of a communist paper back then (the name of which was something like The Guardian, not to be confused with the paper in the UK, was published by “Red View Communications” or some similar sounding name as I recall) was instructive. Both on international events and in domestic (within the US) matters the mainstream media were choosing not to report on many news worthy stories. From an early age, it became clear to me that many important truths were being buried (which is a form of lying). The media has been corrupt and misleading in the US for a very long time. We note that in the 1930s, while there were so many bankruptcies of newspapers and radio stations, the Jews were buying them up on the cheap. Jewish ownership of the media and many book publishing houses here in the US has really curtailed what Americans are allowed to know. Globalism is effectively communism, and the UN and the WHO are all part of the plot for global governance.
