Thought for the day

"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of 'Men who wanted to be left alone'.<p>They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love.<p>They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it.<p>They know, that the moment they fight back, the lives as they have lived them, are over.  <p>The moment the "Men who wanted to be left alone" are forced to fight back, it is a small form of suicide.  They are literally killing off who they used to be.<p>Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these "Men who wanted to be left alone", fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives.  <p>They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror.  TRUE TERROR will arrive at the left's door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy...but it will fall upon deaf ears." ~ Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper

Jean-Bédel Bokassa was a military officer and head of state of the Central African Republic from his coup on 1 January 1966. But being President was not enough so in 1976 he declared himself Emperor of the nation, which was renamed. Central African Empire.

 

Bokassa attempted to justify his actions by claiming that creating a monarchy would help Central Africa to "stand out" from the rest of the continent and earn the respect of the world.

 

 

The throne was fixed on December 4, 1977, the 173th anniversary of Napoleon's coronation, which is why Bokassa chose this date. Meanwhile, the Empire was mobilizing every resource to ensure the success of the coronation. Special committees were formed to oversee various aspects of the work.

 

The committee in charge of accommodation had the task of finding suitable rooms for an estimated 2,500 foreign guests. To this end began to commandeer apartments, houses and hotels for the festive period, renovating them in a suitable way.
