#BurkinaFaso - En attendant les prochaines déclarations officielles et dans un contexte flou, ce serait donc une nouvelle irruption des militaires sur la scène politique - Quelques éléments historiques et biblio pour situer le rôle central de l’armée dans l’histoire Burkinabè 1/8
On a pu décrire le système politique burkinabè comme régulé par une « alternance au pouvoir par le putsch » dans un système prétorien où l’armée protège un pouvoir très personnalisé (toute ressemblance avec le Mali est fortuite) 2/8…
L’institution militaire a ainsi dominé le pays pendant plus de 40 ans depuis l’indépendance, et à largement participé à la construction de l’Etat et à ses pratiques. Même si les civils étaient au pouvoir depuis 2015.. 3/8

1/? #BurkinaFaso last night in the Ouaga 2000 neighbourhood, where presidential palace is located, I saw mutinying special forces had set up check points on major roads and appeared to be in control of the area.
2/? This morning, I am outside the national TV station, RTB, which has been taken over by mutineers. The gate is blocked with armoured vehicle, AA gun outside.
3/? We are expecting a broadcast announcement from the mutineers, who now appear to be increasingly in control.

1/3 The demand was one for those who demonstrated against the passage of the #French military convoy in #BurkinaFaso, #Niger and #Chad, but don't hear those demands in the media!!




3/3 Theseslogans show the total rejection of #French imperialism, which controls their States in the name of the "war on #terrorism", The truth is its presence to protect and preserve its political, #military and economic interests.

C'est le héros du moment au Burkina Faso, le «pays des hommes intègres», en Afrique de l'Ouest. Aliou, 13 ans, est surnommé «le sniper n°1» du pays.

#BurkinaFaso #Aliou #Sniper Image
Samedi 20 novembre, l'adolescent a été porté en héros par une foule en liesse rassemblée dans la ville de Kaya.
À l’aide de son lance-pierre traditionnel, Aliou a abattu un drone français qui surveillait les nombreux manifestants rassemblés depuis la veille pour empêcher le passage d’un convoi de l’armée française.

#Niger: This is by far the deadliest attack in #Torodi in southwestern #Tillaberi since the #Sahel insurgency spread to the area in late 2017.
#Niger: This specific area has been largely overlooked in the context of the broader #Sahel conflict and overshadowed by the #ISGS insurgency in northern #Tillaberi.
#Niger: The double-tap ambush took place near Boni, where a key Operation Saki 2 border outpost is located. #JNIM-affiliated fighters are the likely perpetrators, notably under the command of Abu Hanifa, a lieutenant of #KatibaMacina's Amadou Kouffa.

#Sahel: Today, #JNIM released the video "If they fight you, fight them". It's been almost three years since JNIM released their last full-length video with combat footage, namely "And the Battle Continues".
#Sahel: This could be explained by several factors: First, the focus has been on the political line; second, JNIM's official media presence has declined significantly, and this is against the backdrop of several key media figures (in #Algeria and #Mali) being killed
#Sahel: The decline is particularly relevant when compared to #ISGS, which received major boost from its formal integration into #IslamicState's organizational infrastructure & media apparatus. However, this last video marks the effective recovery of #JNIM media wing Al-Zallaqa.

Ce WE, on a eu une belle illustration de ce qu'est la course au #Buzz de la #Presse.

Les nommés sont :
@Le_Figaro @OuestFrance @LePoint @lesteclair @francebleu @LeHuffPost @BFMTV @franceinfo @lanouvellerep_ @laprovence @CNEWS @actufr @YahooActuFR et j'en passe

Au menu, les rédactions avaient le choix :
1⃣ Parler d'un chevreuil percuté par une bagnole.
2⃣ Raconter une histoire de dingue. Des mecs qui essaient d'écraser un chevreuil et le poursuivent jusque DANS une agence pôle emploi !
Soyons clairs, le cas 1⃣ est un non évènement. Ca se produit environ 50.000 fois/an. 1 fois toutes les 10 min, c'est dire si toute le monde s'en tape.

Mais alors le cas 2⃣, ce serait le graal absolu du buzz journalistique !

Imaginez le truc ⤵️

[THREAD] 1/ Two years ago today, the Islamic State lost control of its last stronghold, namely al-Baghûz Fawqâni in eastern Syria near the Iraqi border. This thread is an analysis of the group's military operations since then. Spoiler: the jihadist group is far from being dead.
2/ Detail about the methodology: I have collected and analysed the data of every single attack claimed in the 104 issues of the Islamic State’s weekly magazine al-Naba’ published between 28/03/2019 and 18/03/2021. Data include targets, weapons used, spoils of war, geolocation.
3/ Since the fall of Baghuz, the Islamic State has claimed 5795 military operations in 31 countries, for an average of eight attacks per day. Three peaks: during three of their military campaigns (Dec. 2019, April-May + August and October 2020), and Ramadân (April-May 2020). Image

It is a change in EU security policy: With a specially created budget outside the EU budget, arms and ammunition deliveries to third countries are to be possible for the first time. The "European Peace Facility" (EPF).
An "instrument to strengthen the capacities of third countries as well as regional and international organizations in military and defense issues", as it is in the draft of the German "#Monitor";
Somewhat encapsulated means nothing else than that the EU can in future also deliver military equipment such as handguns, guns, howitzers or cannons to countries in crisis regions. So far, only states could do this on their own responsibility, but not the EU.

"Ah males ah di #Indonesia. Masa pemimpinnya malah pada bertengkar. Pada saling #khianat." ujar seorang #warga melihat kemelut di tubuh #Partai Demokrat. Padahal, ya di luar negeri juga sama. Saling tikam-menikam dalam #politik itu biasa. Kita bahas,
1. Wang Jingwei. #Politisi asal #China ini, adalah teman satu #partai dengan Chiang Kai Shek. Mereka berdua pada awalnya kompak, menggaungkan #ideologi #nasionalisme China. Lebih lagi, pada saat itu #Jepang sedang agresif di kawasan.

#Demokrat Pak SBY Bu Mega #politik #KLB
Namun secara mengejutkan dikarenakan ketidak-setujuan dengan #KaiShek, #Jingwei memilih membelot untuk membangun #pemerintah boneka yang pro-#Jepang di #Nanking.

#BurkinaFaso : La Douane de #Manga a saisi des produits de contrebande en provenance du Togo ce 17 février 2021. Elle a intercepté une colonne de 5 motocyclistes contrebandiers lourdement chargés contraints d’abandonner les marchandises illégalement importées :
#lwili #Burkina Image
– 5 motos neuves de marque
– 32 cartons de cigarettes de
marque « Gold Seal » contenant chacun
50 cartouches (soit 320 000
bâtons de cigarettes) ;
– 24 sacs de cyanure d’un poids
total de 1080 kilogrammes.

Mais les fraudeurs, mécontents, se sont réorganisés pour affronter les agents des douanes afin de récupérer sur place leurs marchandises. Ils ont même ameuté des villageois acquis à leur cause.
