Obama’s Failed State Policy in Africa



Obama’s Failed State Policy in Africa

By Thomas C. Mountain

The Obama regime must be held responsible for a series of failed or nearly failed states on the African continent. Recently Burundi has been in the news but it could just as easily be Nigeria, Mali or the Central African Republic. Whether the calamities that have befallen these neocolonialist constructions have been intentional or not, the ruination and depredations inflicted on large swaths of Africa amount
to what can only be described as a failed state policy.

While Libya, and before that Somalia, are overt examples of the western implementation of the failed state policy in Africa an honest appraisal of what has happened in South Sudan can only add it to this list. It has been almost a year and a half since the civil war broke out there and not one western “expert” has tried to explain where the so called “rebels” led by Reik Machar are getting the funds needed to pay for the salaries of their fighters let alone the fuel, ammunition and other expenses maintaining such a large conflagration requires.

Of course, the only winner so far has been the USA which has succeed in protecting its national interests by once again having the Chinese expelled from the only African oil fields they control.

Many of the other neocolonialist entities created by the western colonialists upon their retreat from direct rule in Africa have done so little for their people that in reality they could be described as failed states.

What else can you call a country where the population lives in such abject poverty that a major part of the society lacks such basic human rights as clean drinking water, adequate food and shelter let alone education or health care.

The entire country of Liberia lacks electricity and running water. Kenya, often touted as  one of Africa’s success stories, provides electricity to only 26% of its people and running water to even fewer.

If one compares the lives of the people of Cuba, who have suffered under onerous sanctions by the USA since their liberation to the lives of almost all Africans the differences are stark, and appalling.

“Crisis Management” is what Pax Americana has implemented in Africa for decades past, as in create a crisis and then manage the ensuing chaos to better loot and plunder more of Africa’s wealth.

The failed state policy comes into play when the pressure the USA applies directly, or through its proxies, can cause prosperous, let alone already failing societies to begin to disintegrate filling our screens with ever more scenes of death and destruction.

When it comes to the number and magnitude of the crimes committed in Africa under Obama one looks back on the much less dangerous days of the idiots of the Bush Jr. regime. The list of failed, or nearly so, states in Africa under the rule of “Barry O’Bomber”, BHO’s nickname during his formative teenage years, has taken a great leap forward.

A nightmare scenario is another Clinton seems next to succeed to the throne and the thought of the rabidly vindictive Hillary wreaking havoc in Africa as Commander in Chief does not make for a pleasant nights sleep.

  9. Here is the paradox! I wish if the ground situation is true. I feel sorry for the situation in Ethiopia. I just look back and analyze the situation i.e the reality since my childhood. The King regime had made a lot of mistake (feudalism was the era) and there were and are still people for and against. The same with the regimes that followed with socialist background but the present Ethiopian gov't's motto is Capitalism, I guess.
    The up and downs, the disperity of the mass where few became rich or vice versa is the same in all regions. There are some changes to some extent but the leadership attitude towards the mass is controversial. It is a process but the present government had a lot of opprtunities to adjust the situation and create a normal development without prejudice. It is unfortunate became antagonistic to its neigboring people i.e Eritreans.

    Whatever y say the reality is not controversial. I remember what Mengistu says 'wereke beyakerbulet fandeya newe yelal'. Y may have the same sentiment. I tell y success comes when y work with people for people without prejudice.
