TIMELINE (1865 CE-1908 CE) OF BRITISH STATE-OF-ARM WEAPONS DOMINATING REGIONS INCLUDING INDIA AFRICA AND AFGHANISTAN THAT COULD NOT DEFEND THEMSELVES AND USUALLY WERE NOT WAR-LIKE AND HAD PRIMITIVE ARMS OR STILL USE SPEARS OR SWORDS!
BRITISH MILITARY ARMAMENTS TO MASS MURDER WERE USED AGAINST POORLY ARMED AND OFTEN PRIMITIVE NON-MILITARY NATIONS TO BUILD AND EMPIRE! INDIA WAS THE RICHEST NATION ON EARTH WITH OVER 40% OF THE WORLD’S GDP WHILE ENGLAND HAD 3% – SO THE BRITISH USED THEIR MASS MURDERING WEAPONS TO BLOW THEM AND CHINA AWAY!
1856 CE-1860 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British use India to inflict Second Opium War on China’s Qing dynasty Ended in horrible victory for British and the Treaties of Tientsin that allowed British, French, and Americans to the right to station their Ministers in Beijing and Eleven more Chinese ports would be opened for foreign opium and other trade. Foreign Navies warships could navigate freely on the Yangtze River and British could travel to internal regions of China for trade. China had to pay the criminal invaders 225 TONS OF SILVER and Chinese were no longer allowed to call the British Barbarians in writings.
1863 CE-1864 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attacked India, Afghans, and Pashtuns in what was called the Ambela Campaign against local Pashtuns of Yusufzai tribes. The Pashtuns were vehemently opposed to British colonial rule. It cost 1,000 British lives to cause the Bunerwals tribe and then the British under Chamberlain went on to have his soldiers burn down the entire town of Malka, India.
1864 CE-1865 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attack India in the so-called Bhutan War. British declared war in 1864 against Bhutan that had no army, and the people had bows and arrows, swords, knives, and catapults. Obviously, the British should have easily wiped them out any resistance. Even with their major weapons advantages the British initially suffered a humiliating defeat and when they finally wiped them out they then destroyed much in an attempt to compensate and the small fort was destroyed. Bhutanese lost part of its sovereign territory, and lost formerly occupied territories.
1867 CE-1868 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British armed forces attacked the Ethiopian Empire in Abyssinia. The punitive expedition launched by the British required the transportation of a sizable military force hundreds of miles across mountainous terrain lacking any road system. The British battled with the Tewodros (Emperior family) to capture the Ethiopian capital all supposedly done to rescue hostages. Harold G. Marcus described the action as “one of the most expensive affairs of honour in history.” Emperor Tewodros II of Ethiopia, often referred to as Theodore, simply wanted military assistance to secure his government. After the death of Tewodros II the British burned the fortress of Magdala and looted a vast amount of treasure from the citadel, including Tewodros II’s crowns, crosses, gold and silver chalices, swords and shields, many decorated with gold or silver, hundreds of ancient and historic tables (tabots), the great Imperial silver war drum, and a huge number of valuable manuscripts. In burning the mountaintop fortress, they also torched the two churches and the town.
1878 CE-1880 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — Second Anglo-Afghan War and Battle of Magdala with the British using a mix of British and Indian soldiers attacked the Barakzai dynasty or Emirate of Afghanistan killing 5,000+ Afghans in major battles with another 8,000 or so wounded and dying and even more dying from diseases related to the continuous wars. Of course, the British with superior weapons won. The Amir was unable to offer effective military resistance and left Kabul for Turkestan, intending to seek Russian aid for the defense of his region. This was the second time the British and their Indians invaded Afghanistan. Muhammad Yaqub’s request for permission to visit the British military camp and was forced to sign the Treaty of Gandamak, considered one of the most humiliating ever accepted by an Afghan ruler because it essentially made the Afghan Amir simply a Afghan puppet in a British Protectorate. Afterwords, the British withdrew from most occupied Afghan territories leaving death and destruction.
1885 CE–1889 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attacked with some local groups of Egyptians another poorly defended people in Sudan in what they called the Mahdist War or as Winston Churchill called it the Reconquest of the Soudan (1899) in his book by that name. They took 18 years of war to knock off the religious leader Muhammad Ahmad bin Abd Allah. This 18 years of war resulted in the joint-ruled state of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan (1899 CE–1956 CE), a puppet state of the British Empire and the Kingdom of Egypt. The scale of war expand to include the Italians, the Belgian Congo, and Ethiopia.
1882 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — The Anglo-Egyptian War with British and French warships arrived off the coast of Alexandria. Ahmed Orabi tried to defend the safety of his people as the British attacked Egypt. The British warships began a 10½-hour bombardment of Alexandria. Afterwards, British Prime Minister Gladstone initially sought to put ‘Urabi on trial and execute him, portraying him as “a self-seeking tyrant whose oppression of the Egyptian people still left him enough time, in his capacity as a latter-day Saladin, to massacre Christians.” British were embarrassed again as after glancing through his captured diaries and various other evidence, there was little with which to “demonize” ‘Urabi in a public trial so he was sent into exile.
1885 CE-1887 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — Third Anglo-Burmese War was the final invasion of the British into Burma. As the British used the navy river fleet of 55 steam ships and 10,000+ troop army to dominate the primitively armed Burmese. The Burmese king and his country were taken completely by surprise. The British took away the sovereignty of an independent Burma and the Konbaung dynasty as the British bombarded the shores from their steam ships along Mandalay. The British had already taken Lower Burma in 1853, as a result of the Second Anglo-Burmese War. Following the war, the British put Burma under the rule of the British Raj as a province of India. Only after World War II did Burma achieved independence as a republic in 1948 CE. The king of Burma ordered thousands of his armed Burmese troops to lay down their arms. Many disperse with their weapons and these, in the time that followed, broke up into guerrilla bands and prolonged the war for years and these bands of insurgents continued an armed resistance which proved very difficult for the British. King Thibaw was taken prisoner, and every strong fort and town on the river was sacked and the British organized and looted the palace and the city of Mandalay. The British sold off it for a nice profit. The king was dethroned and exiled with the royal family to India. The province of Burma became part of the British Raj puppet run India continent.
1888 CE-1891 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attacked Tibet in a third Black Mountain Expedition or Hazara Expedition to destroy and expel the Hassanzai and Akazai tribes of Tibet. Amazingly, 9,416 British and Indian troops against the poorly armed tribes of Kala Dhaka (known as Hazara) in the Hazara region of what is now Pakistan. It needed in the complete destruction of their towns and villages of three tribes including the Allaiwals. The Commander-in-Chief Sir Frederick Roberts said, we had “to hurry out of the country, prevented our reaping any political advantage. We lost a grand opportunity for gaining control … the tribesmen were not made to feel our power, and, consequently, very soon another costly expedition had to be undertaken.” And he was correct as the tribes failed to honor the agreements which led to a further two-month expedition by a Hazara Field Force in 1891.
1891 CE-1893 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — Anglo-Brusho War or Hunza-Nagar, India War — British troops under the British Raj attacked the princely states of Hunza and Nagar (now part of Pakistan) to take away remoteness with roads for easy military control over the region. After the thousand British Riflemen easily dominated the poorly armed locals the British put Hunza and Nagar under a British protectorate in 1893.
1895 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British invaded and attached Chitralis and their mine with a force of about 400 armed soldiers. One hundred British men rushed out of the eastern gate of the Fort, found the mouth of the tunnel, bayoneted the miners, blew up the tunnel with explosives and returned with a loss of eight men. The British force freed the Fort and found many hungry British and others inside.
1896 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — Anglo-Zanzibar War was the shortest recorded war in history lasting at most 45 minutes. The British were angry at the death of their puppet pro-British Sultan Hamad bin Thuwaini and did not like the New Sultan Khalid bin Barghash. Khalid did not have the permission from the British Sultan to rule so the British Navy sent in three cruisers, two gunboats, 150 marines and sailors, and 900 Zanzibaris in the harbor area. Around 2,800 Zanzibaris defended the palace; most were recruited from the civilian population, but they also included the sultan’s palace guard and several hundred of his servants and slaves. The defenders were severely out-gunned as the Navy bombardment quickly set the palace on fire and disabled the defending artillery. The British quickly sank the Zanzibari royal yacht and two smaller vessels also the flag at the palace was shot down and then fire ceased with 500 Zanzibari killed, while only one British sailor was injured. The British forced Sultan Khalid into asylum at the German consulate, and afterwords he escaped to German East Africa (mainland of present Tanzania). Then the British quickly placed their NEW PUPPET Sultan Hamud in power at the head of their puppet government. This British bombardment ended the Zanzibar Sultanate as a sovereign state and starting a period of heavy British domination.
1896 CE-1897 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — The Tochi Anglo-Indian British Invasion was part of Victorian British Wars on India and Afghanistan. The Tochi punitive British attack sent troops to the Tochi Valley, Waziristan (now in Pakistan) supposedly to put down a rebellion against British dictatorial rule. Young British soldiers had no idea the terrible numbers we were to lose later on in that real Valley of Death, the Tochi, “3 officers, and 98 rank and file.” The British aim was to exact retribution on the tribes (around the village of Maizar) who (a month earlier) had ambushed the Political Officer for Tochi, and his army escort. The British Force included 6 Indian battalions and 2 British battalions they began an 8 day march to Bannu (averaged 14 miles per day). With daytime temperatures in excess of 100 degrees F, marching was done at night, when it was a slightly more bearable 98 degrees and marched amid duststorms and plagues of flies! Of the 801 Riflemen who had begun the 170-mile march, only 726 completed it, the rest having left at various stages of sickness along the route. The British Batallions did the systematic destruction of all the houses there and around Maizar, as punishment for the ambush of 10th. Dysentery and fever were common as men reporting sick daily in the hundreds and “we had now only a mere handful of sound men with us; the others pale, feeble and worn out, were either hospital patients or too weak to get along without assistance and had to be carried in bullock carts”. Not a single man had been lost in action but over 120 died from Fever and Dysentery. It seems the British criminal run government cared nothing about British soldiers or who they destroyed. The British government amazingly considered this a success, but it accomplished almost nothing.
1897 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attacked Pashtun tribes Siege at Malakand (in Kashmir) as part of the (British) Anglo-Afghan wars. The Pashtuns were a poorly armed force of tribesmen whose tribal lands had been bisected by the 1,519 mile border between Afghanistan and India drawn by the British to divide and conquer. The red herring used to justify the war was the Russian boogeyman Empire’s spread of influence towards the Indian subcontinent. The anger and unrest caused by this British division of the Pashtun lands led to the rise of a large Pashtun army that had surrounding the British garrison in Malakand that were able to hold out for six days against the much larger Pashtun army. The British story was, of course, written by the propagandist, Winston Churchill, in a book that showed of Churchill’s First War Against the Taliban that is still being propped up as the “ENEMY” today as an excuse to dominate the region and box in Russia.
1897 CE-1898 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British invade India on another punitive “crash and burn” campaign called the First Mohmand Campaign and attacked the Pastun tribe called the Mohmands who inhabit the hilly country to the north-west of Peshawar, in North-West India, now Pakistan. British had punished this tribe at least five times in previous invasions. They resented the division of their lands, Divide & Conquer, by the British and hated the British dictatorship causing a general outbreak among the tribes. This was again in the Tochi Valley, that the British put down in 1894 CE-1895 CE. The angry Mohmand tribe attacked the village of Shabkadar (Shankarghar), in British territory. Another tribe, the Afridis, within a few days, captured all the British posts in the Khyber Pass. Again, Winston Churchill wrote the story from a British point of view. The British goal was to punish the Mohmands and the Afridis using three brigades of well armed British and Indian soldiers to advancing in two directions on the Mohmands. One brigade was attacked and was ordered to turn northwards and punish the tribesmen of the Mamund valley and several villages were burned to dishearten the Mamunds. The three battalions jointed and advanced to wipe out the Upper Mohmands in the Jarobi and Koda Khel valleys, and they too had their towns and villages burned to the ground. The Mamunds surrendered to the bloody British.
1897 CE-1898 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attack again in India called the Tirah Campaign against the Afridis, Orakzais, and Chamkanis tribes. British troops numbers 34,882 plus 20,000 in reserve in Tirah, India, a mountainous in what is now Pakistan. The Afridi tribe was paid by the British Raj to safeguard the famous Khyber Pass for sixteen years, but the tribesmen rose up and captured all the posts in the Khyber and attacked the forts on the Samana Range near the city of Peshawar. It was estimated that the Afridis and Orakzais were united they could field 40,000 to 50,000 men. This British attack was called the Battle of Saragarhi. The British followed a difficult track through the mountains and was contested at the Sampagha Pass and 20,000 British destroyed the walled and fortified hamlets of the Afridis. The traversing of the valley continued with little difficulty and several more villages were destroyed, but during the return march, the rearguard was hotly engaged all day, and had to be relieved by fresh troops the next morning. Almost daily the Afridis, too wise to risk general engagements, waged continual guerrilla warfare on the British. The last task undertaken was the punishment of the Chamkannis, Mamuzais, and Massozais. The Mamuzais and Massozais submitted immediately, but the Chamkannis offered resistance. The British continued destroying villages and Forts as they marched out of the area in December as the cold was intense in the mountains especially and the British were attacked again and again as they left the area, with some of the hardest fighting as the road crossed and recrossed the icy stream, while snow, sleet and rain fell constantly, many reserves following the troops were killed or died of exposure and supplies were lost. The British finally took possession of the Khyber forts and a Treaty was signed with the Afridis. It was at best a horrific and brutal marginal victory. Even though the British had far superior arms the mountainous terrain and the weather aided the guerrilla warfare.
1899 CE–1902 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS BUT THE BOERS GAVE THEM A FIGHT — The Second Boer War was fought between the British Empire and two Boer states, the South African Republic (Republic of Transvaal) and the Orange Free State, over the Empire’s influence in South Africa. The British Empire included the British, Australia, India, Canada, New Zealand, British Ceylon. The Empire side had 347,000 British Regulars and 103,000–153,000 Colonial Forces versus around 150,000 or so on the Boer side. Obviously a lopsided war considering also the vast armaments on the British side, but this time their enemy was well-armed also. Initial Boer attacks were successful, and although British reinforcements later reversed these, the war continued for years with Boer guerrilla warfare, until harsh British counter-measures brought them to terms. The British were overconfident and under-prepared so the Boers, who were very well armed struck first winning important battles. Staggered, the British brought in extremely large numbers of soldiers. The massive number of fresh British troops retook the lost cities, and invaded the two Boer republics in late 1900 CE and the vast and well-equipped British Army overwhelmed the Boers in staged battles. The British quickly seized control of all of the Orange Free State and Transvaal, as the civilian leadership went into hiding or exile. In conventional terms, the war was over and the British officially annexed the two countries in 1900 CE and setup puppet government-run by London for six years. In non-British Empire nations public opinion was very hostile to the British and even inside the UK there was significant opposition to the Second Boer War. But the Boers in defense of their homeland refused to surrender. They reverted to guerrilla warfare under new generals for two more years of surprise attacks and quick escapes. Guerrillas fought without uniforms so fighters easily blended into the farmlands, which provided hiding places, supplies, and horses. The UK’s solution was to set up complex nets of block houses, strong points, and barbed wire fences, partitioning off the entire conquered territory. The civilian farmers were relocated into concentration camps, where very large proportions died of disease, especially the children, who mostly lacked immunities. Then British mounted infantry units systematically tracked down the highly mobile Boer guerrilla units. The battles at this stage were small operations with few combat casualties (most of the dead were victims of disease). The war ended in surrender and British terms with the Treaty of Vereeniging in May 1902. The British successfully won over the Boer leaders, who now gave full support to the new political system. Both former republics were incorporated into the Union of South Africa in 1910, as part of the British Empire. The mass murders were horrible and the allied side suffered 22,092 dead, 934 missing, 22,828 wounded, and 75,430 returning home sick or wounded. We know at least 6,189 soldiers died on the Boer side, 24,000 Boer prisoners were sent overseas, 21,256 surrendered, 46,370 civilians died and 27,370 of those were Boer men and women who died in prison camps, and 20,000+ black Africans of 115,000 in prison camps died. Treaty of Vereeniging gave British London administration control over The Orange Free State and the Transvaal in accordance with the Treaty of Vereeniging
1903 CE-1904 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British Invasion of Tibet with Indians of the British Raj was supposedly to resolve a dispute over the border between Tibet and Sikkim, which the British invaded and conquered with Burma and Sikkim, taking the whole southern part of Tibet. The Tibetan Ganden Phodrang regime, which was then under administrative rule of the Qing dynasty, remained the only Himalayan state free of British influence, and the British hated that so they invaded, always with the excuse the Russians might do it so we will first. Like today the Russians gave the British clear assurances they had no interest in Tibet, but the ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB wanted full control and their puppet Lord Curzon kept pressing for the invasion. “In spite, however, of the Russian assurances, Lord Curzon continued to press for the dispatch of a mission to Tibet”, a high level British political officer noted. The Rothschilds Mob circulated rumors that the Chinese government (which nominally ruled Tibet) was intending to give the province to the Russians, thus providing Russia with a direct route to British India. The Dalai Lama declined to have dealings with the British government in India, and sent Dorjiyev as emissary to the court of Czar Nicholas II with an appeal for Russian protection in 1900. Dorjiyev was warmly received at the Peterhof, and a year later at the Czar’s palace in Yalta. In 1903, Rothschilds puppet, Lord Curzon, sent a request to the governments of China and Tibet for negotiations. The Chinese were willing, and ordered the Dalai Lama to attend, but he refused. So quickly Lord Curzon concluded that China had no power or authority to compel the Tibetan government, and gained approval from London to set up the WAR. But the Rothschilds puppet, PM Balfour government was not fully aware of the difficulty of the extreme mountain operation, or of the Tibetan intention to resist it. The British tried to provoke the Tibetans into a confrontation. The British took a few months to prepare for the expedition which pressed into Tibetan territories winter 1903 supposedly following some act of “Tibetan hostility”, which the herding of some trespassing Nepalese yaks and their drovers back across the border. The lies multiplied as the local British pretended the Russians were entering Tibet, but Lord Curzon privately silenced that lie in favor of this one, “Remember that in the eyes of HMG we are advancing not because of Dorjyev, or Russian rifles in Lhasa, but because of our Convention shamelessly violated, our frontier trespassed upon, our subjects arrested, our mission flouted, our representations ignored.” The British force, with all the characteristics of an invading army, numbered over 3,000 fighting men complemented by 7,000 sherpas, porters, and camp followers. The Tibetans were aware of the expedition; to avoid bloodshed, the Tibetan general at Yadong pledged that if the British made no attack upon the Tibetans, he would not attack the British. British lied again and said “we are not at war with Tibet and that, unless we are ourselves attacked, we shall not attack the Tibetans”. The British advanced 1,150 soldiers, porters, labourers, and thousands of pack animals, to Tuna, 50 miles beyond the border, supposedly hoping to meet with negotiators they waited for a month and then the British began the invasion toward Lhasa, the capital. The Tibet government, guided by the Dalai Lama, alarmed by a large acquisitive foreign power dispatching a military mission to its capital, began marshaling its armed forces. The British fought its way to Lhasa in summer 1904. The Dalai Lama had fled to Mongolia for safety and later in China, but thousands of Tibetans armed with antiquated muzzle-loaders and swords had been MASS MURDERED by the BRITISH SAVAGES using modern rifles and MACHINE GUNS for attempting to block the British advance. At Lhasa, the Commission forced remaining Tibetan officials to sign the Treaty of Lhasa (1904), before withdrawing to Sikkim in September, with the understanding the Chinese government would not permit any other country to interfere with the administration of Tibet. It was considered a pathetic win since the Russians did not get it.
1906 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — British attacked Bambata or Bambatha, a Zulu chief of the amaZondi clan in the Colony of Natal of the eastern tip of South Africa. He is famous for his role in an armed rebellion in 1906 when the poll tax was raised from a tax per hut to per head increasing hardship on the people during a severe economic depression. The Zulu revolted against British rule, like the Americans in 1776 CE, for excessive taxation in Natal, South Africa. The revolt was led by the leader Bambatha kaMancinza (1860 CE-1906? CE), leader of the amaZondi clan of 5,500 Zulu people. British owners in Natal had difficulty recruiting black farm workers because of BRITISH GOLD & OTHER MINES paid more. Amazingly, the colonial authorities introduced a £1 poll tax in addition to the existing hut tax to pressure Zulu men to enter the labor market. Bambatha, was one of the chiefs who resisted the introduction and collection of the new tax. The government of Natal sent police officers to collect the tax from recalcitrant districts, and in February 1906 two British officers were killed. So the government introduction martial law, and Bambatha fled north to consult King Dinuzulu, who gave tacit support to Bambatha and invited him and his family to stay at the royal homestead. When he returned home The British run Natal government had already deposed him as chief. He then gathered together a small force of supporters and began launching a series of guerrilla attacks, using the Nkandla forest as a base. Following a series of initial successes, colonial troops set out on an expedition. The British run government surrounding the rebels and in a totally unequal battle with vast disparity of forces the British genocided the rebels having only spears against British machine guns and a cannon. Bambatha was killed and beheaded during the battle; however, many of his supporters believed that he was still alive, and his wife refused to go into mourning. Between 3,000 and 4,000 Zulus of the 5,500 under Bambatha were genocided the remainder were imprisoned and flogged. Another horrible British embarrassment of GREED AND DOMINATION.
1908 CE: BRITISH USE EXCESSIVE FORCE AND WEAPONRY AGAINST PEOPLE IN PEACEFUL REGIONS THAT ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES WITH OUTDATED OR POOR WEAPONRY OFTEN LEADING TO SLAUGHTERS — Bazar Valley British attacked another defenseless people, murdering them and burning down everything they owned. This time they wanted to punish the Zakka Khel clan of the Afridi, a Pakhtun tribe inhabiting the mountains on the Peshawar border of the North West Frontier province of British India. The Afridis are a Pastune tribe that controlled Jamrūd Fort strategically located at the eastern entrance to the Khyber Pass in present-day Pakistan but with many relatives in Afghanistan. The Afridis are most dominant in Pakistan’s rough hilly area. Their territory includes the Khyber Pass and Maidan in Tirah. The Afridis are known for their strategic location and their belligerence and savage fighting against outside forces. The British frequently classified them as “warlike” peoples and one of the Martial Race. The main British Army elements were the Seaforth Highlanders and the 37th Lancers. It was an easy domination.
