Military Review

Why did the US and British embassies urgently stop working in Zimbabwe?

31
Information Agency Rider reports a series of incidents in the African state of Zimbabwe. At least three explosions in the capital of the country, the city of Harare, are reported, as well as the entry of several units of the armed forces and dozens of armored vehicles into the city, including armored personnel carriers.


It is stated that the military took control of the building of the state television and radio company ZBC. It is alleged that with the media employees working in the building, did not stand on ceremony. Many were beaten and pushed out of the TRK building.

The US Embassy announced the suspension of its activities in Harare. The US diplomatic mission appealed to American citizens in Zimbabwe to not leave their homes due to "political uncertainty in the country." Britain also closed its embassy in the capital of Zimbabwe. British diplomats also issued an appeal to their subjects with a request to be vigilant and, if possible, to refuse to go out into the street during the crisis.

Recall that the United States and Britain maintain the sanctions regime against one of the poorest countries in Africa for several years, then weakening it, then introducing previously revoked sanctions again.

Why did the US and British embassies urgently stop working in Zimbabwe?


It all began in Zimbabwe with the fact that the 93-year-old permanent president of the country Robert Mugabe blamed the commander of the country's armed forces, Konstantino Chivengi, that he was going to arrange a coup d'etat in the country. Chivenga then brought the troops under his control to the streets of Harare. In this case, the first thing, as already noted, the military took control of the state media.

        And not where. It would be where, long gone. Where the Americans and the British had a hand, even the plants stop reproducing, such a side effect of democracy ... Here it is necessary to develop a joint (global) policy for stabilizing the situation, assistance, and not sanctions throughout the region. Only who will do this when all the institutions (the UN and others like him) are ruined by the Americans ... Only if you believe in a fairy tale. request If the funds that were spent on ISIS and others were used to help countries in need of help ... or at least isolate America from the world, then the fairy tale could have a chance ...

    The coeval of October was too long. To jail him for harassment. Embassies closed because statements are being closed behind.

    But the post office, telegraph and banks are probably absent in this country? Somehow not revolutionary.

      That coup in Africa is a common thing. The Statue of Liberty may support or ignore, depending on Her interests. And to kindle - not everywhere, not always, and generally on the website, amers are credited with too much intelligence and power ...

    The Boers successfully colonized South Africa, which began to boom. The British came to whom this area was vitally interesting, especially when they discovered large reserves of gold and diamonds, beat the Boers (simultaneously inventing concentration camps), organized apartheid, southern Rhodesia and South Africa. But the USSR supported the national liberation movements in Africa, and instead of South Rhodesia Mozambique turned out, the Cubans and Soviet experts helped defend Angola. And the "civilized west" strangled the apartheid regime in South Africa.
    Now there is a permanent mess.
    And it would be better if the Boer republics of Transvaal and Orange were still.
