1)Do people know the war in Congo 🇨🇩 is directly related to the war in Ethiopia 🇪🇹 ? On the picture is Meles Zenawi, the president of Ethiopia until 2012! He was a Tigray by tribe and an ally of Kagame and Museveni in their Hima Tutsi Empire project! Zenawi was recruited into it! Image
2)When Abiy Mohamed became the prime minister of Ethiopia from Oromo tribe,Kagame,Museveni and their sponsors became frustrated. The empire they were building was based on the agreement with Tigrayans.That's why obviously they have been supporting Tigray war against Abiy govt! Image
3)When there was a #coup in #Burundi against Peter Nkurunziza,it was an effort to bring Back Pierre #Buyoya,former president,who was with them in their thirsty to build an empire in the region!The coup failed,#Tanzania knew their games and supported #Nkurunziza back on power! Image

1/ As suggested by @PopovaProf, I'd like to comment on the recent remarks by the #Brazilian president-elect, @LulaOficial, on the #Russian war of aggression in #Ukraine. Needless to say, many were struck by the ignorance and brutishness of these utterances. A 🧵...
2/ But what lies behind this? Many European/US observers seem dumbfounded by the fact that a leader who is widely (and correctly) believed to have bravely stood against dictatorship in his own country would support a genocidal warmonger such as #Putin on the international stage.
3/ The sources of Lula's (and #LatinAmerica's more widely) attitudes towards the war are many, and differ widely between countries, contexts, and social strata. The probably most often mentioned one is anti-Americanism, stemming from a variety of sources, but often relevant...

It’s now official: there is a #coup within a coup in #BurkinaFaso. Little is known about coup leader Ibrahim Traoré. What we do know is that the coup came amid spiralling tensions within #MPSR. Here’s a look at the main points from tonight’s announcement and what led to this 🧵
1/ Damiba has been toppled by coup plotters who claim to belong to the #MPSR. Unclear at this stage where Damiba is. Sources mentioned earlier he had been arrested and negotiations revolved around the conditions of his departure from power
2/ Cpt. Ibrahim Traoré is the new #MPSR president. He was named Chef d’Artillerie du Dixième Régiment de Commandement d’Appui et de Soutien by Damiba in March 2022, but little else is known about him at this stage

#Mutiny and clashes in #BurkinaFaso still underway. Are we seeing a #coup within a coup - if so who is behind it? Much is unclear, but the presidency announced earlier on social media it is negotiating with mutineers. How did we get here are what are they likely to talk about?🧵
2/ In recent weeks, discontent📈within the army. Some see #Damiba as having become more of a politician than the military leader they were hoping for & see him as having failed to deliver on his security promises. 26 Sept convoy attack in #Gaskindé sparked further📈in frustration
3/ As security forces suffer recurring losses, the dynamic could be similar to Nov 2021, when the high death toll of the Inata attack against sec forces and the news that they were ill-equipped and supplied sparked anger and discontent in the ranks

#XiJingping #XiJinpinghousearrest 1/n
Mass slaughtering of #China's prominent leaders started just before the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

8 prominent faces received severe sentences including death sentence just a day before. @TGTM_Official Read here.
#XiJingping 2/n
Xi’s participation in the SCO meeting ends a 1,000-day period in which he did not leave China due to “zero COVID” policy.
The COVID policy that has resulted in mass unemployment, deaths, suicides, mental health issues and over 450 protests this year.

🧵In less than 2 months, #Myanmar & #Russia met at least 3 times via high-level physical visits. #Military chief now making 2nd trip to Russia with his last one only in mid-July. Attending Eastern Economic Forum, he'll likely engage Russian defence again #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
#Russia's Vladivostok Eastern Economic Forum's aimed at attracting investments into Russia. Unclear if Russian President Putin will attend. Since #Moscow attacked #Ukraine 5 months ago, nations like #US & #EU have introduced/expanded sanctions on Russia #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
Economic sanctions & #RussiaUkraineWar have certainly impacted #Russia. Same goes for #Myanmar where prolonged #militarycoup for over a year has caused many foreign firms to pull out/stop investments & brought economy to its knees foreignaffairs.com/russian-federa… #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar

#OTD in 1861, Hawaiian King Kamehameha IV declared neutrality after the outbreak of the Civil War. Allying with the United States would have provoked Confederate raids while recognizing the Confederacy would have seriously damaged international relations with the U.S.
King Kamehameha IV died on November 30, 1863, and was succeeded by Kamehameha V Lot Kapuāiwa. He wanted to keep favorable trade deals with the United States and worked diplomatically with the Lincoln administration to negotiate a new treaty of neutrality.
The Hawaiian public skewed toward the United States. Hawaii already abolished slavery in the Constitution of 1852. Many Hawaiian-born Americans (most of whom were the sons of American missionaries) supported the United States over the Confederacy.

THREAD: Tough to see any real improvement if @ASEAN & #Myanmar #military fail to see eye-to-eye on how far 5-point consensus has come in last 16 months. #ASEAN has just given #Myanmar #military 3 more months till Nov to show results of 5-point plan. 1/5 #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar ImageImageImageImage
But in latest rebuttal to @ASEAN, #Myanmar #military remains obstinate & defiant as it objected to #ASEAN's accusation that military has shown "lack of progress" in implementing 5-point plan to resolve crisis. Military staged #coup on Feb 1, 2021. 2/5

Coupism, totalitarianism and figurehead of #NATO

Thus can be synthesized the journey followed by #Ukraine, since that month of February 2014 when, supported by Western powers in the political, communicational and financial spheres,
the pro-European and #NATO forces of this Eastern European country, overthrew President Viktor Yanukovych.!!

#NeverForget
This, with an essential and distinguishable vector: an anti-Russian policy, which fits perfectly into the traditional #colonial & neo-colonial policies of this "divide and rule"-loving West practiced in Latin America, Asia and Africa and that today, in the Eastern part of Europe,

💥"There was no order"—Trump's own Defense Secretary testified that Trump NEVER ordered Nat'l Guard troops for #Jan6. Pathetic liar Trump claims he did & Pelosi rejected it. And the GOP & GOP propaganda media shamelessly blame Dems for Trump's terrorist attack/coup/insurrection.
💥“prosecutors have asked…detailed questions about meetings Trump led in December 2020 and January 2021; his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions Trump gave his lawyers & advisers about fake electors and sending electors back to the states”
AG Garland is on it >> Justice Dept received phone records of key Trump officials and aides—including Mark Meadows—in April. BEFORE the @January6thCmte hearings in June & July.

The DOJ criminal probe into Trump & his coup attempt has apparently been going on for months.

Het meest fascinerende aan de oorlog in Oekraïne is het enorme aantal strategische denkers dat jarenlang heeft verteld wat er zou gebeuren als we dezelfde weg zouden blijven volgen.

Niemand heeft naar hen geluisterd en hier zijn we dan.
Compilatie van deze waarschuwingen:
1e is George Kennan, Amerika's grootste strateeg voor buitenlands beleid ooit, de architect van de VS strategie voor de koude oorlog.

Al in 1998 vernam hij dat de uitbreiding van de NAVO een "tragische fout" was die uiteindelijk een conflict met Rusland" zou veroorzaken. Image
2e Kissinger 2014

Hij zei dat "Oekraïne voor Rusland nooit zomaar een vreemd land kan zijn" en dat het Westen daarom een beleid nodig heeft dat gericht is op "verzoening".

Hij was er ook van overtuigd dat "Oekraïne niet tot de NAVO mag toetreden"

#building7 #WTC23 collapsing without being hit gave Bush JR what he needed a war on terror. It was JR who made Emergency Use Authorization and facial recognition law realID. Everyone knows “Homeland” connection to Hitler. Nazis introduced the term “homeland” at their first rally.
That rally was at Nuremberg where doctors scientists & media would be executed for manipulating and forcing #Jews into medical experimentation. This is where #InformedConsent comes from. All #COVID19 #vaccines are experimental.

Since there might be a 5th (!) West African #coup developing, below is a thread to help address this question: Why is the U.S. Department of State (State) slow to call a spade a spade/a coup a coup?
It's because of Section 7008, "coups d'etat," a provision in the annual Department of State appropriations act (the law that Congress passes to appropriate funding to State). Some (hopefully) helpful notes on Section 7008:
When there is word of a coup in a country receiving U.S. assistance, State lawyers analyze the facts under Sec. 7008. Sec. 7008 restricts certain foreign assistance to a gov that has been "duly elected" & overthrown by the mil, or the mil played a decisive role in the ousting.

First that western audience is missing - that's a truth why #Ukraine? Russia was not invading in Ukraine in #2014 and do not annex a #Crimea

People of Crimea decided on the referendum to walk away from Ukraine and join #Russia on 16 of March 2014 Image
To understand why people of #Crimea and after them people of #Donbas and leave behind #Ukraine where is #coup happened
