World Cup 2010 - the hidden dangers

Did any of you know that there has been serious outbreaks of rioting and violence in South Africa over the last week? In fact, it has been going on for months. Missed it on the news did you? That is not surprising it didn't make the TV news and the BBC website only ran one small brief item, hidden away in the Africa section, where few football fans tend to venture.

I am sure most of you thought that the so called "xenophobic" violence which flared up last year, and resulted in a number of immigrants being burnt alive, was an isolated incident which has now been resolved. If so, you were wrong.

News of the growing dangers are being suppressed, because the media want to keep pretending the rainbow nation is a multicultural paradise. It is not, and in a few months time we will be sending thousands of young men and women into harms way without warning them what they could face.

just like Brazil 2018/2020, though that country is cleaning it up, I wondered how long it would take someone to start the body count clock.

Why would anyone in their right mind attend the World Cup 2010? This is just asking for trouble. It is only an athletic event, and hardly worth anyone risking their life.

The trouble is that they don't know they could be risking their lives because it is not politically correct to tell then they are.

The poor mugs probably believe that they will be visiting the country full of grinning friendly brown people which we see on TV
