Just like France crawled back to the US after being backstabbed by it with AUKUS to do its geopolitical bidding against Russia in Ukraine, it’s now doing the same in Armenia after being backstabbed by the US in Niger just a few short months ago.
The US backstabbed France in West Africa after cutting a secret deal in Niger almost two years to the day after it backstabbed that same country in the Asia-Pacific.
AFRICOM is a tool of U.S. imperialism that goes largely under the radar. Its consequences are devastating for the people of Africa.
The main objective of Sahel Alliance is to bolster stability and promote overall development in the region.
Russia and China jointly are enabling what used to be called “the Third World countries” to stand up for their rights against their colonizer.
There’s never any benefit to be gained from sharing fake news, especially when it’s about a friendly country and their leader.
The French government persists in considering the junta in Niger as illegitimate, even though the US concluded an agreement with it.
Even diehard supporters of Ukraine in the western media and think tanks are admitting that a military victory over Russia is impossible.
France is forced to react to the latest trends of patriotic military coups and the US’ pragmatic response to the most recent one in Niger.
Nothing happens by chance in politics. The French don’t understand why French-speaking Africans suddenly reject them. They console themselves by accusing Russia of dark machinations. In reality, they are only reaping the rewards of what they have sown over the last 12 years. This has nothing to do with colonialism or Françafrique and everything to do with putting the French army at the service of U.S. strategy.
France fears a deal between the interim government in Niger and Russia to retain the US’ bases in exchange that ECOWAS doesn’t invade.
The tensions in Niger and the subregion are no doubt exacerbated by the geopolitical and economic rivalry between the East and the West.
