    I was kind of wondering what you were getting at until the last couple paragraphs. Most of the rest of it just seemed (to me) to state race where needed. Like this:


    Yes, landmines were a major weapon used by the Marxist black Liberation movements. Virtually all the landmines which are still out there today killing and maiming people (mostly black people) were planted by those who came to "liberate" them.

    What is also never mentioned is that this effective, and yet hideous weapon was used most indiscriminantly against the whites in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). The "Liberators" (like Mugabe and Nkomo), sent their people to plant landmines on every road where it was possible. You can only plant them on non-tarred roads - and there are many such roads in the rural and farming areas of Zimbabwe. Landmines were planted everywhere. A farmer and his family might drive to town in the family car only to hit a boosted anti-tank landmine. What is a boosted landmine? It is one which has various other explosives packed around it to give it that extra punch. Well, if you hit a boosted anti-tank landmine with your family car there is pretty much nothing left of you or your car afterwards.
    Sounded at first read to be simply against landmines - why use them if they destroy your own people? At that point, I thought that it was probably being written by a black person who lived in the country...

    A look at the front page of the site confirms it for me...

    I thought it was kind of creepy that they were using mine detectors as parade floats as well.

    This belongs properly in politics and religion. And if you read more some of his stuff makes sense I. E the analysis of the race riots in Australia.

    I don't see how this compares to the "Race riots" in Australia. If the thread continues as a discussion of the trike, it will stay here. If it turns into a discussion of drunk bogans fighting with Lebanese and Arab immigrants in Australia, I'll move it.

    Notice the springs on the seat? Concern for the rider's comfort was a very thoughtful touch.

    Gee, I dunno. What's the gearing? And what type of clinchers does it come with?
