Last week, the world was shocked by the statement of former US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton. On July 12, in an interview with CNN, he admitted that he participated in the preparation of coups in other countries of the world. I think that for many it will not sound surprising, but in fact, for the first time an official of such a high level admitted that Washington is making concrete plans to carry out revolutions in other countries. I highly doubt that the United States is interested in the opinion of the peoples of the countries they manipulate.
In this regard, I decided to express my opinion on global politics. The Central African Republic has faced several attempted coups over the past decade. Much indicated that Western puppeteers played a significant role in planning these coups, as well as in equipping and arming the conspirators, but the West always justified itself. Voices from the USA and Europe declared that the core problem is “uncivilized Africans” who do not know how to live in peace, and solve all the problems via armed conflict. Therefore, in order to ensure peace here and there, foreign peacekeeping missions are needed, because they are the only ones who can keep these “savages” intact.
As a result, we have huge armed missions with multibillion-dollar budgets. Instead of investing resources in education, culture and real security, the money goes to business trips of tens of thousands of people, who do nothing behind the high walls of their bases. In addition, a significant part of the money is stays with those who do not even leave New York. At the same time, the situation is not changing, new coups and uprisings are happening all over again. Why does it go like this? Because this is how this global system, which has been managed from Washington for a long time, is built.
The people of the CAR were able to shake up this system. The conspirators initiated and supported by the West were stopped and defeated by the Central African army due to the fact that they were trained in advance by Russian instructors. It has brought defeat to the myths about the inability of Africa to live peacefully and the myths about the effectiveness and necessity of foreign military missions. African countries need investments in the economy and education, while the West invests in planning, preparing and carrying out coups.
Thank you, Mr. Bolton, for confessing. As I always said, the truth will break through and win.
