Jean-Pierre Bemba Just Became The Congo’s New Kingmaker

The future of the Congo ultimately comes down to who Bemba decides to side with, why, and on what terms, as well as what his relations with the same West that wrongly imprisoned him and tried to destroy his reputation will be if he succeeds in entering into a position of political influence. For all intents and purposes, Bemba is the Congolese kingmaker, and he might even have a shot at becoming the king himself.

Russia recognizes the reality that Rwanda is a military superpower in Central Africa and that it would surely play a decisive role in any forthcoming Congo War, which might also be why Lavrov was so eager to visit the country and find out what President Kagame discussed with Macron at the end of last month during a closed-door meeting in Paris that media reports suggested was about the developing Congo Crisis.

Contrary to appearances, Libya’s problem is not so much the rivalry between its leaders as the absence of pacification between tribes and the exclusion of Kadhafists. The solution can only be negotiated between the four leaders united in Paris, but only within and around the House of Representatives of Tobruk, whose authority now covers 80 % of the territory.

France Wants The Future To Be Eurasia vs. Eurafrica

France is seeking to sell the Eurafrican Axis to Europeans on the basis of it helping them engage in ‘controlled’ ‘replacement migration’ through the creation of a long-term ‘crisis management mechanism’, one which it hopes will also appeal to Africans because of its ‘developmental’ dimension even though the entire proposal is essentially a rebranding of Paris’ decades-old “Françafrique” policy of neo-colonialism.
