Bolton Threatens to Force Africa to Choose Between the US and China

The Americans wager that they can exercise veto power over African political alignments by force of arms, through AFRICOM’s massive military infiltration of the region.

“The ‘West’s’ political economies are spent forces, incapable of either keeping up with China’s phenomenal domestic growth or of competing with China in what used to be called the Third World.”

Donald Trump last week trotted out his war dog, National Security Advisor John Bolton, to growl and snarl over China’s attempts to “gain a competitive advantage” in Africa through “predatory” practices that supposed include “bribes, opaque agreements, and the strategic use of debt to hold states in Africa captive” to Beijing’s global schemes.

Bolton gave his speech at the right-wing Heritage Foundation, a place that specializes in crafting social policies that appeal to white supremacist majorities within the U.S. domestic order. He could be confident that the Heritage audience knows little about the actual state of the world, holds facts in low regard, and gives less than a damn about Africa. There was no need for Bolton, the man with the comic mustache, to make sense with this crowd, so he didn’t even try.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If EVER an administration needed a "Department of Peace", it is right the heck now!!

In looking at the combination of demonization plus sanctions against Russia; China; and Iran, it is very clear to me that the US government is about to sleep-walk this country into wars our military may not be able to win.

And I say this not because I don't care about the future of this country; I say this because I do care about the future of this country, because at this time in US history, our military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the troop strength; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war against China and/or Russia.

Speaking of which, here's a companion story, again out of globalresearch.ca:
