Explaining the @RepMattGaetz Interrogation on US-Trained African Coup Leaders

A thread 🪡

@RepMattGaetz recently had an excellent performance in Congress, where he interviewed the head of US Africa Command, General Langley, about the string of coups led by US-trained military leaders:

@RepMattGaetz did a very good job, but, I don't know if he understands the larger international relations story here, or if he considers it inconvenient to his narrative, which is the noble goal of getting US troops out of Africa:

Prima le indiscrezioni su una possibile base dell'EPL in #Guinea , ora il pressing di 🇨🇳 per avere strutture operative di tipo navale in 🇦🇷 (già casa di stazione spaziale cinese).
Che succede? Chiamiamola pure la "geometria delle ritorsioni", in questo caso simmetrica. /1
🇨🇳 sta cercando balcone sull'Atlantico in risposta all'accerchiamento contenitivo subito in Indo-Pacifico, e più nello specifico nella "catena di isole".
Simmetria perfetta: 🇺🇸 stringono morsa in Indo-Pacifico, 🇨🇳 prova a bucare schermatura dell'emisfero occidentale: l'Atlantico
Effetto psicologico importante negli 🇺🇸, dove protezione dei due oceani/isolamento dell'emisfero occidentale ha storicamente alimentato un tipo di "sicurezza insulare".
🇺🇸 non potranno più dire "siamo al sicuro perché lontani da Eurafrasia", ora che 🇨🇳 li sfida nell'Atlantico.

"I Was Circumcised Twice Before The Age Of 16!"
Teliwel Diallo Recalls Hers:
"When I was eight years old, my mother told me that it was time for me to become a woman. She took me somewhere. I met other #Girls, some friends and girls from the neighboring village.
It was a big #day. I didn’t know anything about excision. I was feeling happy inside. I did not know the consequences and pain of excision.
We were maybe one hundred girls. Everyone was waiting her turn. I could hear the cries of the #girl before me. I was frozen. I could not run
because it would be a dishonor for my #family. I was wondering whether I should run away or stay, but I didn’t have the choice.
I heard the #Girls crying. My turn came. It was atrocious. Four #women caught me, put me down, opened my sex and cut me. I cried out loudly. I feel that

Esordio con gol decisivo, ieri sera, per Mustapha Elhadji Cissé in #BolognaAtalanta. Fino a inizio febbraio,questo ragazzo classe 2003 giocava in Salento nell'ASD Rinascita Refugees, una squadra di rifugiati e richiedenti asilo.

Fattosi conoscere nella cooperativa gestita dal mediatore linguistico senegalese Niang Baye Hassane, ha fatto rapidamente strada nella Primavera bergamasca, e già il 13 marzo è stato convocato in prima squadra.

Cissé è arivato in Italia giovanissimo, nel 2019, scappando dalla Guinea, un paese afflitto da gravi problemi di povertà e instabilità politica, e qui da noi ha fatto tutta la trafila dei centri di accoglienza.

The coup attempt in #GuineaBissau yesterday came weeks after the military takeover in Burkina Faso and follows last year’s coups in Chad, Guinea, Sudan and Mali.

What drives these more frequent power grabs? The answer is:

it is complicated 🧵…
As most of these countries are situated in West Africa, it would be easy to think the drivers of these coups are the same across the board, but the reality is more complex:
The January 2022 coup in #BurkinaFaso followed a growing insecurity in the country, a rise in #jihadist militancy and an increasingly frustrated army, especially after a deadly attack on 14 November 2021 left 53 soldiers dead, the highest death toll ever in one single attack.

Thread 🪡

Yesterday, @CIJ_ICJ handed down its judgment on the #maritimeboundary between #Somalia and #Kenya. This was the first judgment since the Court’s renewal in February 2021 and Judge Donoghue’s election as President (source of all images: @CIJ_ICJ). 👩🏻‍⚖️
Kenya did not appear at the oral proceedings before the ICJ after appearing at the preliminary objections phase (link to preliminary objections judgment below). However, the ICJ could rely on its written submissions, filed before deciding not to appear.…
Somalia and Kenya had very different views on their maritime boundary. Somalia argued that there was no agreed boundary, so that the ICJ had to delimit a boundary by the 3-stage approach in use since the 2009 #BlackSea case (link below, [115]-[122]). 👩🏽‍💼…

Yet another coup. This time in #Guinea. Once again it has a reignited the debate about coups in Africa. Indications are there is 📈 trend in the occurrence of coups. In 2019, there was one successful coup. In 2020, there were two. In 2021, three coups. 1/
This 📈 trend in the occurrence of coups corresponds with the deepening trend in the democratic governance deficit that has become characteristic of the politics of countries on the continent. 2/
This deficit involves, among others, narrowing down of the civic space, extension of term limits, flawed elections, undue restrictions on opposition groups, activists and independent media & rising frustration among the public, particularly the youth. 3/
