It needs to be remembered that Africa is becoming more important in terms of China’s strategic calculus for its crucial consumption capabilities and that the country will not be able to continue growing unless its continental partners sustainably develop in turn and are able to ensure the security of these infrastructural lifelines.

Western governments are known to deploy so-called “sock puppets” and “bots” in waging information warfare, and it’s no secret that they coordinate campaigns with their Mainstream Media partners, which makes it all the more shameless for them to accuse their opponents of doing the same thing that they do out of the desperation that only such a stinging narrative defeat can bring.
The most important significance of what just happened is that it proves the success of the US’ “Operation Condor 2.0” hemisphere-wide unipolar comeback over the past few years in regaining control of most of the continent following its “Pink Tide” multipolar “rebellion” a decade ago.
The events in Armenia are the destabilization of this state that corresponds chiefly to the interests that the US and its allies have in provoking problems right in the center of the Russian-Turkish-Iranian Multipolar Tripartite at this sensitive geopolitical time.
Looking beyond the failed (former) “state” of Libya that NATO destroyed in 2011, there are several other crises waiting to happen in Africa and which could serve as the trigger for a Migrant Crisis 2.0. The first one isn’t country-specific but deals with the continent’s woes in general.
Nowadays Nicaragua is the host of China’s planned Transoceanic Canal that’s meant to rival the Panamanian one but which has thus far sluggishly struggled to get off the ground, though like almost everything in contemporary International Relations, there’s also a Russian angle to it as well.
While Kanye’s recent life experiences very closely parallel the rapid rise and fall of Harrison Bergeron when the sci-fi short story character briefly rebelled against the totalitarian ideology of the authoritarian system, the rapper might actually succeed where Kurt Vonnegut’s 1961 character failed.
Saudi Arabia hopes that the psychological pressure of being cut off from the mainland together with the deployment of a Saudi base and the construction of a nuclear storage facility on the southern half of the newly created “island” will ensure that Qatar continues to feel under threat, though this might inadvertently backfire by triggering a “siege mentality” among its population.
President Putin is wise enough to know that Pandora’s Box can never be closed once it’s opened and that the opportunity for preventing that from happening passed a long time ago, but even if he’s unable to stop the world from descending further into chaos, he knows that he at least has an obligation to warn about it so that the global public can know who’s responsible for everything that happens afterwards.
The hysterical hype about the supposedly imminent commencement of “World War III” and the nuclear apocalypse that people are being conditioned for manipulative reasons to expect right afterwards never came to pass, but all the same, there’s an unmistakable worldwide struggle going on for the future of International Relations.
In pursuit of maintaining the so-called “middle ground”, President Erdogan has rhetorically oscillated between the West and Russia in order to provoke the unipolar and multipolar “blocs” to compete with one another for Turkey’s loyalty.
Although Guatemala recognized Belize’s 1981 independence over a decade later in 1992, it never dropped its claims to the southern half of this newly created country.
