    • Speight Adrien says:

      @CarpeDiem Which war? If you mean against france ( and thus nato) you are delusional. They have nuclear weapons and modern armes..

    • CarpeDiem says:

      Speight Adrien with modern weapons and nuks..? they have no soldiers no heart no balls watch and see what’s gonna happen how they go home.

    • Speight Adrien says:

      @CarpeDiem they can deploy around 500 000 soldiers but that excludes the drones, tanks and check even in conventionall bombing it would barely take a week to wipe out africa. Even if you win the conventionnel war the instant african troops enter NATO land they will send nukes in the thousands.

      France colonisation died a long time ago, thankfully. the hostilities between the african nations is its first problem. India was a huge British colony and it lifted itself out and has made massive progress like China. There are thousands of countries in the african continent, they are not all colonies, and they are not all the same. They still have slavery and other ancient problems , with or without colonisation. Very easy to live in the present and blame the past without trying to make any positive changes.

  • lowerastral says:

    Western countries influence poor and developing countries (include China in this one as well as an “influencer”) and by “influence” I mean, CORRUPT, because we all know that the Western powers are massively corrupt. For instance, the United States used to pretend that it was a democracy (even though we here IN the United States know full well that this is a massive lie and one of the biggest jokes being told around the world, especially today with Donald Trump lollygagging around on Twitter and his golf courses while our country literally BURNS … anyway, I digress) that was “helping?’ other countries become “democracies?” themselves.

    Corruption abounds in every country on this planet. Has anything changed since the Roman Empire or from the Khans or from ANY time in human history? Of course, not! Human beings don’t EVER learn their lessons, at least, not until AFTER they’re dead. But the living go on making the exact same mistakes over, and over, and over again.

  • lowerastral says:

    It also looks to me like they don’t have COVID-19 in their country. Not that poor people in a poor country can afford face masks … and, in a coup, certainly, the concept of “social distancing” is out of the question.

  • Rashida Kartini says:

  • gektor ps says:

    Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita was asked to save the port of Beirut. Presidents many 1 port could not save. The major General was blown up. The death of major-General Vyacheslav Smooth. Born by mistake. ISIL difficult fight and 1 blow and the corpse of Vyacheslav Gladkikh.1 hit is cheaper than a land mine. Land mine roads in North-Eastern Syria. 1 VDV blew up a helicopter and 100 VDV corpses.Vyacheslav Gladkikh from 100 airborne troops is not present.Foolishly, the family did not kill the major General. ISIS will give money to the family for murder. Not enough for your family and friends. Land mines are expensive.1 hit and a corpse is cheaper. Major General Vyacheslav Gladkikh was asked to save the port. The major General doesn’t care. Pay 15 billion us dollars for the port of narod. The major General was killed for blowing up the port. For the port boys. Major General Vyacheslav Gladkikh’s task is to save the port at any cost. The explosion of the port is a disgrace to the Russian Federation.

  • Korak Kari says:

    Everyone knows what happened to past African Presidents who attempted Expelling France 🇫🇷. Among European countries, France has the highest levels of military interventions with Africa in part to maintain colonial contracts and to insure French control of Natural resources . After independence, France signed colonial currency maintenance agreements with countries such as Côte d’Ivoire, the Central African Republic, Djibouti, Gabon, Senegal, Cameroon, and others.Everyone knows what happened when countries try to break those agreements. After decolonisation, France established formal colonial contribution agreements with many francophone countries in sub-Saharan Africa.These arrangements allowed France to establish itself as a big brother and maintain hegemony in the region. France adopted an interventionist policy in Africa, resulting in 122 military interventions that averaged once a year from 1960 to the mid-1990s and included countries such as Benin (Operation Verdier in 1991), Central African Republic (Operation Barracuda in 1979 and Operation Almandin in 1996), Chad (Opération Bison in 1968–72, Opération Tacaud in 1978, Operation Manta in 1983 and Opération Épervier in 1986), Comoros (Operation Oside in 1989 and Operation Azalee in 1995), Democratic Republic of Congo (Operation Léopard in 1978 and Operation Baumier in 1991 when it was Zaire, and Operation Artemis in 2003), Djibouti (Operation Godoria in 1991), Gabon (1964 and Operation Requin in 1990), Ivory Coast (Opération Licorne in 2002), Mauritania (Opération Lamantin in 1977), Republic of Congo (Opération Pélican in 1997), Rwanda (Operation Noroît in 1990–93, Operation Amaryllis in 1994 and Opération Turquoise in 1994), Togo (1986), Senegal (prevent a coup d’état in 1962)[29] and Sierra Leone (Operation Simbleau in 1992).France often intervened to protect French nationals, to put down rebellions or prevent coups, to restore order or to support particular African leaders.

    Daily Mass killings taking place in Nigeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, and several other african countries maintained under so-called Democracy and all these nefarious media houses were and are silent. A mere Coup takes place with nobody killed, and they are all reporting it. This shows that all is good and dandy when Genocides are being conducted in Africa.
    A.U. Ecowas, W.H.O, U.N, are useless or Nefarious. Eventually, something will definately give that will be uncontrollable.

    • Chimenum Wobo says:

      It won’t work in Nigeria….the north might accept but not the south

    • Theresa Abdul says:

      @Chimenum Wobo You do not know the North. The question is Who is the North? Because the POLITICAL North simply means the non indigenous Hamitic foolanis systematically carrying out a Genocide against the indigenous ethnic groups of Northern minorities and Middle-Belt under the GUISE of a unifeid government. The biggest Landmass and population of indigenous Nigerians are actually the Northern minorities. People are slow to anger but when foolanis are allowed to carry sophisticated weapons and wipe out whole towns and villages, replacing them with their own people while the Natives are NOT allowed to arm themselves…you think that is going to continue just like that? The reason there is still a government in nigeria is simply because nigeria is not, was not, and will never be a country in the real sense because its many different ethnic groups or nations forced together as one and this makes it easy for the foolanis to take out ethnic group after ethnic group. And they can take out the south very easily after the middlebelt which will be no cakewalk, because the south entirely is very small in Landmass. The entire southwest can fit into two states in the middlebelt. the southeast can fit into one (1) state in the middlebelt. Do your research.

  • Korak Kari says:

    Everyone knows about the colonial currency called a France CFA and The Continuation of Slavery in French speaking African countries. When it was created in 1945, the CFA franc originally meant franc des colonies françaises d’Afrique. Having survived African independence, it continues to circulate in fourteen African countries divided into two monetary zones in West and Central Africa. Despite the Africanisation of its management in the 1970s, it is still governed by the operating mechanisms inherited from the colonial period. In addition to the manufacture in France of CFA franc banknotes and coins, it is the French government that decides on the parity of this currency. The latter is represented with a right of veto in the bodies of the two central banks that issue the CFA franc. It also holds half of the foreign exchange reserves of African countries in return for a financial guarantee that has rarely been effective.A taboo subject for many years, invisible in western media and academic writings, the CFA franc has gradually imposed itself in public debates thanks to a significant mobilization of pan-Africanist movements and intellectuals from the continent and the diaspora over the last five years. It is now difficult for scholars focused on the region to remain indifferent.

    Faced with growing pressure from African public opinion, President Emmanuel Macron, who initially wanted to ignore the growing movement, declaring it a ‘non-issue’ for France, eventually conceded that the time had come to turn the page. Thus, on 21 December in Abidjan, Emmanuel Macron, alongside his Ivorian counterpart Alassane Ouattara, announced a ‘historic’ reform of the CFA franc which circulates in West Africa, excluding for the time being its equivalent in Central Africa. From now on, France will no longer have representatives in the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) and the latter will no longer be obliged to deposit its foreign exchange reserves with the French Treasury. Finally, the CFA franc will be renamed ‘Eco’. It is on the basis of these three announced changes that the presidents of France and Côte d’Ivoire proclaimed with great pomp and ceremony the ‘end of the CFA franc’.

  • muyiwa adeosun says:

    The problem in Africa is that ,the opposition understood the feelings of the people before they came into the power. Immediately they get the power ,they just forget all the promises and let the people down. What the Africans need is good governances and immediately they don’t get it they become restless. This is the era of social media and the whole world are one now. A lot of Africa are in diaspora and communicating daily with their people back home telling them how normal life supposed to be from their respective countries. The people back home knows all this right. Coming to the coup , it is not acceptable but in this situations ,it is the last resort to flush out the unacceptable government from their oppressive rules. What the people needs is good governance and let the army decide for them . After all the army is part of the people and let them be.
