Mali after the French intervention

Following France’s large-scale military intervention in Mali in January 2013, referred to in the Western media as the «operation to save Mali from Islamists» and shown on television almost in real time, there has been virtual silence about the situation in this African country... French troops managed to carry out several successful operations and kill a few leaders of Islamist groups, but, on the whole, not a single group has been defeated. On the contrary, what is happening in Mali today suggests that the strength of the Islamists has not been undermined; they are capable of carrying out serious military operations and gain the upper hand. It seems Paris planned this exact course of events...

Washington’s Support for Right-Wing Secessionist Movements in Countries Targeted for Destabilization

Washington constantly accuses Russia of backing «secessionists» in eastern Ukraine against the right-wing and fascist-backed regime in Kiev. However, when it comes to backing secessionists against countries targeted by Washington for destabilization, America’s Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon wrote the book on such operations. From supporting the secessionist movement in Katanga that sought to destabilize the government of Patrice Lumumba in newly-independent Congo to its backing of Ahwaz and Baluchi separatists against the government of Iran, the United States has no room accusing any other country of supporting secessionist movements to achieve foreign policy aims...

Nigeria on Fire

In July 2014 the activities of Boko Harum – a terrorist group operating in Nigeria – intensified activities on a broader scale. Skirmishes with the government troops turned into real battles. Terrorist acts became much more frequent and the fighting has gone beyond the state borders. The Boko Harum terrorist group appears to become an international organization... On July 27 Boko Haram militants attacked the northern Cameroon town of Kolofata and seized several people including the wife of Cameroon's Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali. The official was taken away from the place by his guards. The mayor and his family were taken hostage. The clashes with the Cameroon army lasted for a few days...

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...

European Union and Ukraine: Geopolitical Ambitions Going Too Far

The European Union is reluctant to recognize the fact that the decision by former President Yanukovych to postpone the conclusion of the association agreement was made in view of grave problems. That’s what influenced his decision. These problems plunged the country with the population of 45 million into chaos provoking the ongoing civil war and exacerbating the situation in Europe as a whole. Is not an extremely high price to pay for exorbitant ambitions of European politicians?
