"The country invaded by Russia will never recover" - the field commander of an illegal armed group in Africa

145

Russia's activity in Africa does not carry charity, all its actions are aimed at achieving their own goals. Russian influence in Africa is growing, the United States is decreasing, and this does not benefit African countries, writes the author of an article for the American edition of War on the Rocks John Lechner.


According to the author, Russia is playing a destructive role in Africa, and the United States must resist this country. To do this more effectively, Washington needs to build its work with the citizens of countries, and not with their elites, often associated with the Kremlin.

As an example, the author cites the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR), where, after the departure of the French and the United States, Russia took a stable position, allegedly sending mercenaries from Wagner PMCs under the guise of instructors. Russian mercenaries help elites hold on to power, guard the president, train the army, and in return receive mining concessions.

The Russian-backed CAR authorities are fighting armed groups operating in rural areas that are not only against the authorities, but also against Russia. As one of the field commanders of the illegal armed group 3R (banned organization) Sembe Bobo said: "We know that the Russians will destroy everything before they leave. The country invaded by Russia will never recover."

The United States cannot sit on two chairs opposing Russia and fighting jihadist insurgencies. To defeat Moscow, Washington needs to make "very inconvenient" policy adjustments and rely on the rebels. The US must sacrifice short-term stability to build democracy. It is in Washington's long-term interests, the author sums up.

    It would be more correct that the country which was invaded by one of the world powers will take a long time to recover (Perhaps the generation in which the time of the invasion took place will not take this restoration away, but in terms of human life this is no time)

      is not the point, the journalist openly declares the need for the United States to support anti-government terrorist organizations "for the sake of building democracy")
      only at some point the world began to see clearly that the "good American pilgrims of democracy to the whole world" are not good)

        Everything is as usual.
        The US is going to "destroy" another country by plunging it into a civil war.
        They are also no strangers to "substantiating" the need for this by the wishes of local terrorists.

            I watched it .., hmm ... everything there is very controversial, especially in terms of heroism - 11 mercenaries, whom the scriptwriter did not even give under-barrel rifles (a greedy and sadist, apparently ... wink ), with a couple of "pakemon" and especially canonically so, I liked the swing of the "Tourist", with the undermining of a local gantruck with the rescue of a black girl in a beautiful red beret of the local guard, with a concussion head injury, this is when other gloomy guys became on them from RPGs plant, as in the dash of his African on the ground, almost point-blank !!!

            Nikolay Miklouho-Maclay in the mythology and culture of the Papuans
            A.V. Tutorsky singled out three images of Miklouho-Maclay in the mythology of the Papuans. In the legends recorded at the beginning of the 1940th century, he acted as a classic cultural hero: he stopped wars, gave iron axes, turned tribes to agriculture and encouraged the islanders to move to the mainland. By the 1950s-2010s, Maclay was associated with a cargo cult: now he presented the Papuans with a flag as a sign of a covenant with higher powers, talked about the independence of the Papuans from colonialism, and gave them food and European goods, including canned food, salt and rice. In the texts of the beginning of the 1st century, recorded by the Russian MAE expedition in 1871, Maclay was the recipient of the magical knowledge of the aborigines: this image justified the need for cooperation with Europeans. The socio-economic basis of this myth is well understood by the natives [2017]. From the beginning of the XNUMXth century, the legends about Maclay gradually penetrated to the mountain tribes, in the mythology of which his image was more associated with the missionaries-enlighteners and even Jesus Christ. In these legends, he was called Magaray or Magruai. The land of the Gorenduk clan, on which Miklouho-Maclay first landed in XNUMX and built the first stationary base, is considered a kind of "Promised Land", on which a new village of the Bongu people was built in XNUMX, named after the deified traveler

        They are experiencing, knowing the love of this nation for the business with gold and diamonds, they were definitely present in the CAR, and now the lafa is over.

          Israel's share in world diamond cutting is 23%. You have not seen anything surprising - the Israelis buy diamonds everywhere, incl. in Yakutia. Lafa is not a fig for the Jews - before they negotiated with the Africans for two kopecks, now they will agree with the Russian protégé for four, or directly with the Russians for five kopecks. laughing

                        It seems logical that if “the country into which Russia invaded, will never recover", And you agree with this - then" Russian influence in Africa is increasing, the United States is decreasing, and it is not good for African countries"is also true ..))

                        The country invaded by Russia will never recover, Russian influence in Africa is increasing, the United States is decreasing, and this WILL benefit African countries "
                        So what ??)

                        If you agree that the country will not recover .. then it means that no benefit can be expected from here .. Isn't it right ??

                        And with another country, perhaps there are chances at least ..
                        And purely without politics - it is essential that the States are richer, more influential, and making friends / working with them is more profitable.

                        since all this is printed in the amerskoy edition. So this is not at all what I wrote)

                        Wrong, it is better to read. "Russian influence in Africa is growing, the United States is declining" is the only thing I agree with. Take Syria as an example, the government and I have crumbled all sorts of jihadist barmaley, now the refugees are returning home, and peaceful cities are being restored, it seems that there is nothing wrong with that.
                        Specifically for the CAR, I will not say what this will lead to, but even if we assume that it’s going to be nothing good, if the African were such an impartial truth-teller, I would say that any intervention in the country would negatively affect it, and not Russia alone. And so it turns out that we are bad, while others are white and fluffy, and therefore they need to move Russia away and come to put things in order) This is the message of the article
                        In our edition it was reprinted, the original is in amersky, and as for me, it is far from the fact that there was a boy at all, in the sense of that African fighter in reality

    The dude in the photo was wearing an American trooper chevron, but that wasn't what caught my eye. The person nearby (in a white shirt), who holds the Galil submachine gun, holds it (surprisingly) literally, which means he was trained by a professional western instructor.
    World powers love to divide jihadists and other rubbish into "friends and foes", to brand some, and train and arm others. And then, when they become uncontrollable, fight them “heroically”.
    Illustrative examples:
    The Taliban, fed by the Yankees against the USSR, and ISIS, the backbone of which are former Iraqi officers who trained in the USSR.

    The author was not mistaken in anything! Only now, instead of Russia, it would be necessary to put the United States, since after their stay and instructing on the path of true democracy, the receiving side disappears from the arena for decades, recovering from devastation, gradually moving from the status of a partner to the camp of the unfriendly hegemon.

    Russia's activity in Africa does not carry charity

    Finally, Russia stopped arranging charity in the style of the USSR. Any help assumes response. If they are not there, then there is no help. Everything is in the style of the USA and Europe. This of the warlords decided that the States would be more supportive of him. Oh well. It's hard for idiots to live. The funny thing is that people think this way not only in Africa ...

    Russian influence in Africa is growing, the United States is declining, and this does not benefit African countries, writes the author of an article for the American edition of War on the Rocks John Lechner
    Obviously, the author is working out the fee, but "democracy" does not allow to write the truth.

    As one of the field commanders of the illegal armed group 3R (banned organization) Sembe Bobo said: "We know that the Russians will destroy everything before they leave. The country invaded by Russia will never recover."

    Who gave the monkey his word?
    where, after the departure of the French and the United States, Russia took a stable position, allegedly sending mercenaries from the Wagner PMC under the guise of instructors. Russian mercenaries help elites hold on to power, guard the president, train the army, and in return receive mining concessions.

    This is our cow, and some Russians milk it.
    The Russian-backed CAR authorities are fighting armed groups operating in rural areas that are not only against the authorities, but also against Russia.

    Well, they are doing chaos.

      Unfortunately, this resource has recently been overloaded with xenophobic curses, which discredits it, the Russian-speaking segment of the Internet and Russians. Somehow it is necessary to call to order too unprincipled commentators. In ordinary life, in 10 years you will not hear as many curses addressed to non-Russians as you will read in a couple of visits to this site. Apparently someone is deliberately littering sites with such an abomination.

    Nobody needs Africa, everything that the Europeans do there is aimed at achieving some economic interests related to the extraction of minerals. It's just that Russia is doing it in a more civilized and gentle way. Here, the author and the United States, the rolls are burning from this.

    Here they show two criteria of democracy, and therefore it is necessary to understand them - the criteria, the difference. Democracy appeared during the time of slavery, which shows social inequality in a society divided into two classes - dominant and servile. Therefore, in the environment of the ruling class between members of society, there is a relative equality of civil rights and freedoms, duties and responsibilities to society and the administrative apparatus - the state. And in relation to the servile class - slaves, deprived of the means of production, civil rights and freedoms, and therefore turned into personal property and free labor for the production of everything to satisfy the services and needs of their master on the basis of assigned duties and responsibility for failure to fulfill them. At the same time, the owner forces the slaves to work by means of gross physical violence - an incentive, a stick to fit the slaves. Therefore, in relation to slaves, there is not even a hint of democracy, but there is only a cruel and immoral dictatorship. And if by this criterion - feudal and bourgeois democracy, compared with American democracy, where there is also social inequality according to different criteria, and the indigenous population is driven into reservations, then we see the essence of this very democracy, which is based on slaveholding roots.
    A different form of democracy existed in the USSR, where Soviet power, on the basis of the proletarian dictatorship of the proletariat, built proletarian democracy - the rule of the working people in the interests of the working people and under the control of the working people. Therefore, the Soviet form of democracy is directly opposite to American democracy, because it is aimed at social equality of all members of society with equal civil rights and freedoms, duties and responsibilities of citizens, but in accordance with and taking into account age and gender differences. Therefore, under American democracy, the ruling class provides relative democracy between its members, then in relation to the servants it uses dictatorship in one form or another, which the United States is now demonstrating. Under Soviet rule, on the contrary, the proletarian form of democracy is aimed at ensuring social equality and ensuring civil rights and freedoms for the working people, while the dictatorship is used to protect workers from all forms and types of social parasitism through the oppression and exploitation of man by man.
    This is the difference in the criteria and forms of democracy. Therefore, if the USSR, the example with the countries of the Warsaw Pact, the former Soviet republics and even Afghanistan, we see that democracy is aimed both at the elimination of social inequality, etc., as well as the rise of the economy and social welfare of these countries. And the liberation of these countries and the return to the bourgeois form of democracy just shows the high form of Soviet democracy and the baseness, if not the meanness of the American form of democracy. Therefore, American democracy can only hold on to the freedom of propaganda through the media, etc., which has received tools to manipulate public consciousness on the basis of the transfer of potential and the ideological and propaganda apparatus of defeated Nazi Germany, developed on the basis of modern technologies, or on outright discrimination and violence.
    And this is understandable: the ruling class can exist when and only when, when it can receive everything necessary for its existence from the producers of goods and services. Therefore, the consumer society is a parasite both in relation to domestic producers of goods and services, and in relation to external producers, which is reflected in the enormous growth of government and domestic debt. And this debt, not backed by material values, just shows the essence of the parasitism of this - the American form of democracy. And it is this parasitism that requires the establishment of both world domination and a rigid dictatorship over the producers of goods and services to ensure the existence of the ruling class and those close to it.
    Probably, such an analysis should be done, and on its basis - appropriate conclusions.

    All that any country needs for development is stability. The opportunity to work and develop appears only when nothing burns or explodes under you. The nicest European powers and the United States throughout the 20th century took care that there was never any stability in Africa.
    As far as you can understand, our people there simply provide order, and nothing more. However, for utterly bored Africans, this is manna from heaven! And of course, in the US and in Europe, no one likes this.

    An amazing thing, I typed a query in a search engine: "Russian press on the destructive role of the United States in Africa"... Didn't receive any relevant response. Probably, our scientists from various scientific institutes and agencies do not write on this topic. Indeed, why waste time on trifles? But the film was recently watched here, "Tourist" is called. Just about the described events. True, at first he did not understand either, in Hollywood he was filmed, or he only provided a movie camera.
    Although, of course, it may just be unlucky when searching. In any case, the question begs: is it possible that American analysts are right? Americans force local residents to work, but they feed them, they say when to go to bed, when to get up, what to do. Sometimes they even encourage for their work for the benefit of the few chosen ones, they can provide them with a "green card" so that they can become at the end of their lives one of the citizens of a great country.

    “In general, it is, of course, very in the spirit of the Americans - to interview a notorious radical and pass off his opinion as an alternative point of view, despite his atrocities towards the population of the Central African Republic. Any sane person understands what this opinion is and why Americans need it. Attempts to discredit our brave specialists who are the guarantors of stability will not go anywhere. And you need to answer this with deeds. It turns out, as we can see, very effectively, "- said the military writer Alexei Sukonkin.

    Government forces, supported by Russian instructors, who are usually ranked by Western media as PMC Wagner, continue to smash the radicals. The militants, realizing that they now have to confront a much stronger army and its allies, are trying to convince everyone around that Russia is evil.
