South African Sketches

Unexpectedly the events in Ukraine have become an indicator displaying the attitude of South Africans towards Russia. On the one hand, South African media outlets reprint the reports of Western information agencies depicting the life in Russia as doom and gloom without silver lining. On the other hand, some of them, especially the ones that support the government, try to fight this information tyranny... There are forces in South Africa which are ready to oppose the most massive anti-Russia campaign in many years; no matter the issue has little relation to the country. To understand why one should turn to history...

China Key to Africa’s Optimism… and Renewed Western Militarism

...In the past three years, China is estimated to have allocated a total of $100 billion for investment in almost every African country. The invested activities include oil and gas industries, civic infrastructure of universities, hospitals and transport systems, as well as a wide range of mining operations... It is no coincidence that Western capitals are trying covertly to gain a renewed military presence in Africa. On this score, the French seem to be taking a lead with four major military interventions in the past four years in Cote D’Ivoire, Libya, Mali and currently the Central African Republic...

What is Germany’s Interest in South Sudan?

...Berlin’s policy regarding Sudan should generally be in keeping with the policies of Washington and London, namely: the partition of a formerly united country and the separation of South Sudan should not just mean the separation of a large area with considerable strategic importance from Khartoum, but also a change in the ownership of a significant part of Sudan’s oil resources. In this instance, the interests of Germany, the US and Great Britain are the same – these Western powers are eager to «protect» East Africa from penetration by China...

South Sudan and Wind of New War: Where Does it Come From?

...The new United Nations resolution envisages significant surge of the force’s strength from seven to twelve and a half thousand – actually doubling the Mission’s strength... The resolution № 2132 was prepared by the United States. In some aspects it serves as an example of how the forces of the United Nations are used in the interests of the United States of America to provide for the operations of the US armed forces... The country’s troubles and the new flare-up of violence in the middle of December are caused by the activities of armed groups and the interethnic strife...

Made in Saudi Arabia: Salafist Radicalism in Africa

Hardline Islamist radicalism, nurtured by Saudi Arabia’s vast oil wealth, is spreading through Africa at a rapid pace. Radical Salafist and Wahhabist groups with names like Boko Haram, Seleka, and Uamsho, unheard of a decade ago, are massacring Christians during church assemblies, razing Christian villages, and assassinating moderate Islamic clerics. Of course, this Saudi-made mayhem is a godsend for the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), which can point to the spread of «Al Qaeda»-linked terrorism to Africa as a reason to increase America’s military presence on the continent and add armed muscle behind Uncle Sam’s quest for Africa’s oil, natural gas, and mineral resources...

France Makes Virtue out of Vice to Exploit Central Africa Chaos

Where Francois Hollande looks weak and beleaguered on the national stage, registering as the most unpopular French president ever, his fortunes seem to rise abroad with a strident interventionist foreign policy. We saw that in September when the French president unseated the British as America’s «special friend» by declaring his country’s readiness to join Washington in a military assault on Syria... This French activist tendency on foreign matters was on display again over the recent P5+1 nuclear negotiations with Iran... France’s old colonial stomping ground in Africa is also providing the Hollande government with a convenient counterfoil to domestic woes...

Asia Pivot Declared, US Army Eyes Africa

U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Africa in June-July was widely seen as evidence of the White House's broader foreign policy objectives which have included an expansion of U.S. military operations across Africa. With the forces leaving Afghanistan, the Army is looking for new missions around the world. « As we reduce the rotational requirement to combat areas, we can use these forces to great effect in Africa », Gen. David M. Rodriguez, the head of the Africa Command, told Congress this year…

Mali: Africa's Fight with the International Community

After the world media drew global attention to events in the Republic of Mali at the beginning of this year, everyone just as quickly «forgot» this Western African country, with its population of 15 million and several hundred thousand refugees and internally displaced persons. Nevertheless, while the intensity of the war in Mali has lessened, the war itself is far from over... The «international community» does not plan to leave Africa; a real solution to security issues on the African continent would threaten its control of African resources...

Famine-Stricken Niger Feeds French Development and Wealth

...Some 80 per cent of France’s national energy supply is derived from nuclear power generated at 59 plants operated by state-owned Electricite de France. About one-third of France’s total annual supply of uranium ore for its power stations is sourced from Niger. The French uranium-mining company, Areva, has mines across Niger, guarded by French Special Forces... As one million people now face starvation in Niger – the poorest country on the planet that otherwise should be one of the richest – oblivious French politicians, reclining in Elysée Palace, will no doubt be toasting their glasses of fine wine over fine food, and arrogantly chortling: «Vive La France!»

Africa: The Forgotten Target of NSA Surveillance

For the Western media, Africa is always a mere footnote, a continent that is generally forgotten in matters of espionage and electronic surveillance. However, as leaders in Europe, Latin America, and Asia bemoan the surveillance activities of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), Africa has also been a victim of overarching communications surveillance by the United States...

Kiev Declares War on South-East

The civil disobedience movement in the Ukraine’s South East spreads around growing into a people’s uprising... With the war on its own people declared, no way can the regime represent the whole Ukraine at the international four-party talks to take place on April 17. This fact is obvious... The delay of the Kiev’s positive response to the South-East, or even punitive actions against it, will eliminate the state of Ukraine, at least within its contemporary borders...
