1/ THREAD (in aggiornamento) - UNIRE I PUNTINI.

Sono troppe le cose che stanno succedendo, tutte insieme e tutte molto velocemente.

Provo ad appuntare in un unico thread quelle che secondo me sono connesse tra loro. Image
2/ Attenzione alle notizie che arrivano dal #Sudan.
Perché? Qui una cronistoria che parte dalle bombe dei tempi del DEMONcratico #BillClinton che hanno aperto la strada a ▶️ USAID (operazioni più sporche) e a ▶️ certi "laboratori di ricerca farmacologica"

3/ È importante notare il fatto che, almeno fino al 1995, in #Sudan troviamo Joseph Cofer Black (trasferito come capo-centro CIA da Londra a Khartoum nel 1993, probabilmente per gestire la formazione di Al Qaeda).

Ma chi è Joseph Cofer Black? (segue)

The #SAF-#RSF war across #Sudan 🇸🇩 is not just a power struggle between #Burhan and #Hemedti, it is a clash of two military generations. Two vastly different cultures of warfare, each with a desire to dominate Sudan and have the other one be the scapegoat of decades of misery. Image
Burhan represents the old guard, the generals who took power in 1989 and have basically ruled #Sudan 🇸🇩 ever since. The SAF is a responds to ower struggles with coups and to rebellions with sieges and bombardments. It is a classic Arab military, similar to the EGA 🇪🇬or the SAA 🇸🇾 Image
Hemedti is the challenger. He represents the warlord generation, his irregular RSF was founded from the "Janjaweed" militias, which were created to do the SAF's dirty work.

RSF militants would destroy village after village in rebellious areas, slaughter thousands of civilians. Image

#Sudan 🇸🇩: residents of #Khartoum woke up this morning to the sound of gunfire and plumes of smoke rising into the air as clashes appear to have erupted in the capital city.

These armed confrontations follow weeks of rising tensions between the SAF and RSF military factions.
#Sudan 🇸🇩: many Sudanese see loyalists of the former #Bashir regime as being behind the recent tensions, sowing chaos as a way to derail any transition process and attempt a possible return to power…
#Sudan 🇸🇩: more footage if gunfure and rising smoke in the #Khartoum area.

#Sudan 🇸🇩: during a speech today #RSF warlord #Hemedti was trying to save his own skin by saying he regretted his role in the #SudanCoup.

He stated the coup of October 25th was a mistake which opened the door for the former regime (Bashir loyalists) to return to power. Image
#Sudan 🇸🇩: meanwhile #Khartoum based Resistance Committees are calling for anti-military protests on 21 February. Image
#Sudan 🇸🇩: anti-military protests in the streets of #Khartoum today.

#Sudan 🇸🇩: a deal has been reached in order to end the #SudanCoup which has been going on for over a year now.

Both the #FFC and the military have agreed to a 24-month transition, under the leadership of a civilian PM, with elections at the end.

But there's a but 👇
#Sudan 🇸🇩: just as with the previous transition deal there is very little that holds either #Burhan or #Hemedti to honor their promises, meaning the country is and remains very vulnerable to another #SudanCoup at any moment.

There is also no mention of any reform of the military
#Sudan 🇸🇩: the Resistance committees, which were the backbone of the December Revolution have already voiced their opposition to the deal since it doesn't include any framework to bring justice to the 110+ protesters who were killed since the #SudanCoup.

Manifestation d'ampleur à nouveau aujourd'hui aux abords de Khartoum. Les manifestants sont empêchés d'accéder à Khartoum à proximité du palais présidentiel et les affrontements on eu lieu avec une forte répression
la mobilisation au Soudan contre le général #Burhan ne faiblit pas et de nombreux jeunes participent aux combats de rue (images que l'on a pu voir en Colombie en 2021) malgré le nombre de blessés et de morts depuis plus de 2 mois
la répression du régime militaire est terrible causant de nombreux blessés / Omdourman (ville de l'autre côté du Nil face à Khartoum) cet après-midi

When the intl community suggests “dialogue with the military”, I think they are missing one important difference between the Sudanese military & the norm in the rest of the world - with a few exceptions:
The ousted fascist islamist regime has fundamentally changed—->
<—the nature & hierarchy of the armed forces. 1989 coup planning took long time & meticulous preparations. They recruited officers to the NCP & radicalized their beliefs so that their loyalty is to the islamists ideology outweighs their loyalty to the country & their mission—>
<— the top generals are compromised beyond rehabilitation. Same generals became the Security Committee of Bashir regime & took over when he was ousted in 2019. Then they rebranded to Transitional Military Council #TMC amid the protests & sit-ins. They continued to quell descent—>

I’m not one for hyperbole but the collapse of the transitional government in #Sudan is no longer a far fetched possibility. The country is literally bankrupt. The situation was already bad when COVID-19 hit. Now the country was brought to its knees by the floods.
This gloomy economic situation is exacerbated by the political dysfunction & dispute within the government component which was made evident in the not-so-subtle blame trading between #Burhan & @SudanPMHamdok on the dire state of affairs.
Moreover #Burhan (surprise!! not @GeneralDagllo) appears to be positioning himself to become the "savior" of #Sudan in the medium to long run. How he plans to achieve this is unclear but it is very obvious he is seeking to build a political base & polish his image
