THE WEST'S SENSELESS INCURSION IN LIBYA(PART1)

Image
I have heard many pundits in international relation; journalism and social commentators analyze the current situation in Libya though most of them exhibited gross ignorance in their delivery.
Libyan soldiers are constantly referred to as Gaddafi’s forces and not Libyan forces, is it that Gaddafi just recruited them in the wake of the crisis? and the West seem to have given the Benghazi rebels legitimacy in their attack. The number of rebels protesting in Libya can no way be more than the entire population of Libya; they cannot even represent 30% of the entire
Libyan population yet the West is making the world believe majority of the Libyans are in favor of the so called protest.
Libya for a long time has been the main threat against U.S hegemony in Africa. Gaddafi is one of the leaders in Africa pushing for the unionization and oneness of the African continent as a strong force against western influence and machination and this has put the West against Gaddafi and has always accused …

EGYPT, THE REVOLT AND THE WEST

Allowing Egyptians choose their own leaders and making them believe in that very process will put Egypt on a high pedestal as the most populous Arab country with credible electoral system and good democracy.
There are now hundreds of thousand of Egyptians demanding fair elections as against a president mobilizing a bullying state apparatus against the crowed seeking freedom.
The moral imperative is clearly that he leaves office immediately. Repressions by forces loyal to him have rather worsened an already tensed situation and has exposed his real taste for dictatorship.
Washington’s influence over Egypt vastly outweighs London’s that is why Obama has come under intense domestic and international pressure to direct the outcome of events in Cairo but has remained reticent for reason very obvious that he may not want
the world to know the extent of influence the US has over Egypt and still pursuing more. The Suez Canal is a major trade root for th…

THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT AND UMAR AL-BASHIR

Image
With close attention and self appraisal of the international criminal court, I have no doubt in my mind that the ICC has achieved a lot of successes.
I may hold that view of seeing mostly, African leader’s parading their corridors but that does not also make me doubts the deeds of the African leaders who taste their jurisdiction and come out guilty.
The conflict of Darfur evolved in February 2003 when Darfur rebels attacked military post in El-Fasher, complaining of neglect and marginalization by the Khartuom government. This reason has been a major source of political conflict in Africa. The response of this attack was swift and brutal mainly targeting civilians whose ethnicity showed they were supportive of the rebels groups. The Khartoum government allegedly financed band of Arab nomads who have often clashed with African farmers over pasture and grazing in Darfur.

With the military and these nomads of Sudan, they formed the junjaweed fighters. They have destroyed villages, ra…

THE UN AND THE SECRETARY GENERAL. A FAILURE OR SUCCESS

Image
Years after the creation of the UN to replace the defunct League of Nations, there is continuous debate among its member states on the successes and failures of the this noble organization this in itself should not create doubts in the minds of the world that it has completely failed to make the world a peaceful place. In its core mandate it has strived hard to avoid another world war which is one of the greatest successes so far. Of course so many experts in mediation and security has failed in bringing peace to areas assigned to them,the intricacies of how they failed cannot be relegated.

A former UN secretary general, Trygvie lie one called the office of secretary general of the UN the most impossible job in the world. I think Trygvie Lie knew what he was talking about. The UN is charged with some tasks of extraordinary difficulty. In the performance of his work, he obviously cannot make every one happy. Each faction may expect support for its own position and becomes disappointed w…
