Is Donald Trump better for Eritrea and the Horn of Africa?
If Hilary Clinton wins, then we will see a continuation of Susan Rice's war mongering and anti-Eritrea policy in the Horn of Africa. But with a Trump presidency, Eritrea and the people of the horn could see policies that are favorable to regional peace and security.Sponsored Ads
Leftists for Trump
By Thomas C. Mountain
I am a leftist for Trump. As an alumni of “Leftists for Bush” and living these past 10 years in the Horn of Africa, I cant help myself. I am irresistibly drawn to “Leftists for Trump”.
Of course if I was living in the good old U-S-of A I would be in the streets demonstrating against The Trumpster. But then I would be in the streets marching against Lady Hillary as well.
Since I live in Africa and having seen what evil mi’Lady has wrought here I find myself rooting for Senor Trump. God knows what he would really do, but at least in his more lucid moments he has the courage to declare that what the Queen of Chaos wrought in Libya is an ongoing unnatural disaster.
This unnatural disaster called “NATO vs Libya” is one that just keeps on giving, as the residents of Tunisia or the hapless denizens of North Eastern Nigeria have learned thanks to ISIS and Boko Haram’s Libyan weaponry.
Of course there are the US supplied cluster bombs being dropped on Yemeni children, all part of an agenda supported by Madame Clinton. Bush barely came close to any such crimes against my adopted continent of Africa, from whence we were all migrants in times most ancient.
Hillary scares us, especially out here in the Horn of Africa. We are living abreast the strategically critical Ba’ab Al Mandeb, so aptly named “The Gate of Tears” by the Arabs, through which passes the commerce carried out between the worlds largest trading partners, Europe and Asia. The day the USA loses control of the Ba’ab Al Mandeb marks the beginning of the end of Pax Americana’s world empire.
The USA has lost its economic domination and is left with its military as its only claim to super power status. So as the critical choke point Ba’ab Al Mandeb goes so goes Pax Americana. This should explain the War in Yemen and the War in Somalia. What’s left, the War Against Eritrea?
As war torn as our region is, with Hillary in charge we can only expect an escalation of the most brutal forms of gun boat diplomacy, as in US aircraft carriers bombing all recalcitrant natives, be they Christian or Muslim.
Its so awfully true that Lady Hillary never met a war that didn’t lift her spirits and with all to many wars bringing joy to our presumptive President. Be it the USA backed rebel army in South Sudan, the slaughter of demonstrators by America’s Ethiopian gendarmes or drones and cluster bombs against the Somali and Yemeni people, Trump has claimed to be against such disasters as a matter of principle. Were as Mrs. Clinton is foaming at the bit, raring to bringing us rebellious Africans to heal.
We can only imagine Madame President Clinton’s rage when Eritrea, a small socialist country founded on the motto “Never Kneel Down” is faced with her legendary imperial wrath for refusing to do just that, kneel down or be destroyed.
Remember Sirte? Where while trying to escape, Gaddafi met his death, and that while on his knees? “We came, we saw, he died” Madame Clinton cackled. This horrific brainchild of Secretary Clinton foretells what will be Africa’s fate under her Imperial Rule.
So “Leftists for Trump” is my cry, brought to you by the remainents of “Leftists for Bush”. Though I have to admit that this election has stirred a unique interest in a die hard “democracy-phobe” like myself what with the likes of the billionaire Koch Brothers backing the Democrats against the almost Libertarian utterances of Donald Trump, he of what used to be the Party of the “New Jim Crow”.
Honestly, out here in the climate disaster wracked Horn of Africa, we really don’t give a shit how bad you’all in AmeriKKKa have it. If having Trump elected President means less of your murder and mayhem in our part of the world, then here’s to “Leftists for Trump”, if that is what it takes.
