The Empire’s Fifth Column in Africa: Morocco

by Aidan O’Brien

Morocco’s newfound interest in Africa is linked to NATO’s attack on Africa and the murder of Muammar Gaddafi. NATO’s destruction of Libya completely humiliated the African Union. It tore the heart out of an alternative African future, and left Africa seriously exposed once again to the Western imperial virus: a virus contemporary Morocco carries. “Morocco’s body may be in Africa but its mind is in the North Atlantic and the Persian Gulf.”

The US Extends Its Drone War Deeper Into Africa With Secretive Base

by Joshua Hammer

The explosive growth of Boko Haram, the Nigeria-based Islamic jihadists that surged across the region after NATO’s war of regime change in Libya, has been a boon for the U.S. Africa Command, AFRICOM. The once-sleepy airport at “Garoua represents the newest expansion of America’s stealth war against jihad in Africa,” a theater of operations that stretches across Cameroon, Nigeria, Chad, Niger, and Benin.

The Big Lie Behind the Eritrean Exodus Across the Mediterranean

by the Real News Network

Eritrea is one of the few African nations not part of AFRICOM, which makes it an enemy of the US. To destabilize the Eritrean regime, the EU grants expedited entry and semi-legalization to Eritreans who reach its shores.

General Laurent Nkunda, a veteran mercenary for Uganda, Rwanda and western interests, is the likely field commander. This is not a Congolese “rebellion” in any true sense of the world, but "yet another military thrust by Rwanda and Uganda to destabilize eastern Congo and seize absolute control.” 

Obama’s Failed State Policy in Africa

by Thomas C. Mountain

President Obama’s is a state-destroyer, especially in Africa. Chaos, misery and failed states are his legacy on the continent. Obama’s fatal touch causes “already failing societies to begin to disintegrate, filling our screens with ever more scenes of death and destruction.” South Sudan is a state that failed before it began.

Susan Rice and Museveni Shake Hands on Crimes in Central Africa

by Ann Garrison, with Milton Allimadi

The U.S. project to make South Sudan an independent country has descended into catastrophe and mass death. Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni, Washington’s hit man in the region, intervened in the South Sudanese civil war. “Now what we have in South Sudan is a conflict between an invading army, Gen. Museveni’s army and a South Sudanese army.” Museveni’s previous interventions in the Congo left millions dead.
