This is the dilemma, & the sociopolitical & socioeconomic crisis of identity that is now playing-out in front of the watching world, via the impasse of the Transitional Military Council (TMC) & “The People” that are STILL Protesting on the streets after Omer Al-Bashir’s ousting

1/17 Un fil un peu décousu, parce que je me demande bien quoi penser, dans le contexte du "retour" de la #Russie sur la scène internationale, des exemples qui s'accumulent où Moscou et Poutine se posent en faiseurs de #paix.
2/17 Je ne parle pas de l'offre d'aboutir (enfin) à un traité de paix avec le #Japon, toujours en attente depuis 1945 (offre de #Poutine qui n'a d'ailleurs pas abouti avant la fin 2018, comme les déclarations initiales l'envisageaient).
