After leaving decapitated bodies strewn around the streets the BBC is saying

"Mozambique's insurgency grew out of local people's grievances at feeling marginalised and discriminated against by their government."

The western media is no surprise making excuses for criminals.
No one is denying pervasive corruption in Africa. But it is the standard practice of rewarding every terrorist attacks by putting the blame on the government. Terrorist acts hardly get the reputation they truly deserve..."cowards". They are portrayed as disgruntled individuals
..tired of corrupt practices leaving them no choice than to pick up arms. A terrorist attack on the West is a grievous crime against the free world. The terrorists are called barbaric. World leaders lock arms and match down the streets in a show of solidarity.
But in African countries...its not really their fault u know... They are the product of bad governance, marginalised and discriminated against by their own government. They are only a victims of circumstance. The government is to blame.
Western media is one of the single biggest reason global terrorism has flourished. The pattern is the same in Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria...its always poor governance. The western media inspired and propagated the Arab Spring that today has left 500,000 people dead in Syria,
The destruction of Libya and the resultant proliferation of terrorist groups all over Africa.
Dozens of people just got massacred and decapitated. No empathy for the berieved. They could use their platform as a rallying cry to bring awareness and call for justice. So many they the BBC could have done. Instead this is Nice editorial in response to war crimes/crime
..against humanity commited by these barbaric group.

QUOTE

Local residents complain they have seen little of this wealth or investment passing down into their community which prompted the beginnings of the insurgency in 2017, later becoming "internationalised"

END OF QUOTE
Not even a paragraph on the barbaric nature of these crimes. They are making excuses for these acts of barbarity and violent depravity conveniently putting the blame on the central government.

Recent events have focused attention on the threat that terrorists with MANPADS pose to commercial airliners. For the first time we are no longer invulnerable. Boko Haram can now potentially inflict pain on every Nigerian in any part of the country.
Shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles are receiving a great deal of attention as potential terrorist weapons that might be used against commercial airliners. These missiles, affordable and widely available through a variety of sources
MANPADS generally have a target detection range of about 6 miles and an engagement range of about 4 miles so aircraft flying at 20,000 feet. Aircraft departures and landings is the times when it is most vulnerable to MANPADS.

THREE PART SERIES.

How did we get here?. Part 1.

The spread of shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles from Libya after the overthrow of Muhammar Gaddafi’s regime has always been a threat to not just military aircrafts, but commercial aircrafts as well. Image
January 8 2012. The CIA is alarmed by the sudden influx of militant groups into Libya from the MENA region and calls on NATO to deploy troops on the ground to secure Gaddafi's stockpile of arms, which was at that time the 4th largest stockpile of arms in the world. ImageImageImage
French President Nicholas Sarkorzy kicks against sending boots on the ground to secure Gadaffis amoury. It will be threading on a diplomatic mine field. NATO will be seen as an occupation force. The should be no boots on the ground. We came to literate not to occupy he said.

The U.S military has fallen prey to the invading army of political correct nut jobs, human resources power point jockeys and identity politics radicals. Instead of being in alert to fight foreign enemies the U.S military is now being used to ferret out domestic foes ImageImageImage
That is anyone to the right of the Biden administration. Imagine National Guard troops marching down the halls congress to criticise a Republican Congress woman after she made comments they didn't agree with. There's also a new policy encouraging servicemen and women ImageImage
..to report one another to higher ups if they caught them saying it expressing the wrong things or ideas or opinions. I grew up reading Tom Clancy novels. The U.S is begining to look like the old Soviet Union where political officers (Zampolits)check everyone's thinking.

We are looking at Mozambique potentially becoming the next Syria. ISIS terrorists are trying to create a new Caliphate in Mozambique. Good news is that the SADC has had emergency talks in Zimbabwe and is reportedly preparing for an ECOWAS style military intervention . ImageImageImage
On the 24th of March the town of Palma was attacked by by al-shahab terrorists, affiliated with the Islamic State. They came into Palma from three direction and took control of the town. ISIS is eying the over $60 billion gas project in the Delgado province. Yes Billion.
If they succeed, not will they be the richest terror group in human history, they will send money back to Iraq and Syria to finance another uprising. They will most likely isolate Cabo Delgado from the rest of the country and dig in, ready to fight to the last man.

The Nigerian Air Force, army and local authorities are coordinating search efforts for the Alpha jet that disappeared from radar. Search efforts on the ground and in the air continue with search helicopters and ISR aircraft deployed. Image
So what do we know. The Alpha jet was on a close air support mission for troops. This means there was request for air support from troops. This means it was flying towards a hostile environment.
It could have crashed in a very remote area with no cellphone service. But the fact the Alpha jet went missing near the Nigerian border suggest something sinister. There was no Mayday broadcast. No communication from the pilot. It just disappeared from the radar.

SPECIAL TRIBUTE to the most Iconic aircraft of the Nigerian Air Force.
NAF Alpha Jet force has been routinely employed in combat air patrols and conducted countless air strikes against Boko Haram militants over a number of years
In 1990, four Alpha Jets were deployed in support of ECOMOG forces in Liberia, which were engaged in combat with the NPFL. In a series of strikes, these aircraft launched successful attacks upon Charles Taylor's HQ, rebel convoys and shipping, and gun emplacements at
