What African State is Another Target for US Military Intervention?

The US has temporarily moved nearly 200 Marines to Sicily from their base in Spain. This is a precautionary step to bolster the ability to respond to a crisis in Africa... «We're doing this as a contingency because we believe that the security situation in North Africa is deteriorating to a point where there could be threats», said Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman... In 2013 alone, AFRICOM conducted joint exercises with fourteen African nations, leading land, sea, and air-based operations carrying out a total of 546 «military activities» which is an average of one and half military missions a day... All over Africa, the United States has tried to check the growing influence of China. It’s easy to see what’s driving the US policy on the continent. Remembering Bill Clinton «It's the economy, stupid». The planned military interventions are part of larger geopolitical game...

South African Sketches (IV)

The May 7 general election will make it clear who’ll rule the country for the next five years. As of May 1, 2014, the National Electoral Commission of South Africa registered 200 political parties, including 152 national and 48 provincial ones.  29 parties are taking part in the election... So, who’ll rule South Africa? It’s not an idle question. No matter in 2014 South Africa has ceased to be the leading African economy overtaken by Nigeria; it still is the leading power of the continent...

South African Sketches (III)

South Africa will have the fifth general election on May 7. Could the African National Congress win the election and form a cabinet? A lot depends on who will win to lead the country for the next five years, be it economy, or the country’s place in the world as an alternative to the existing order in the capacity of BRICS member.

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…

Azerbaijan – Turkey: Caucasian Prisoner of Asia Minor

The Euro Atlantic and Eurasian integration processes have passed Azerbaijan leaving it on the sidelines. The Azeri call it the policy of «flexible alliances» or keeping at some distance from all other power centers except Turkey... Turkey has no interest in Azerbaijan’s moving to any kind of integration. Turkey wants to be a bridge that Azerbaijan has to cross in order get to the old continent. The Eurasian integration would offer great prospects for Azerbaijan but Turkey is strongly against. It firmly opposes any cooperation of Azerbaijan with Russia or Iran. There are many ways Ankara could use its leverage to impact Baku...
