Washington Brings Africa Under Military Control

Against the background of actively discussed recent developments in the Middle East, Washington's activity in Africa has been given less attention in foreign media. This could not happen without the active influence of the United States on the said process in order to reduce criticism of the White House's implementation of its hegemonic political and strategic plans, at least in this direction.

However, as a detailed study of the issue shows, the situation here is developing very revealingly, demonstrating Washington's desire to, using its military bases and intimidation by weapons,"spread American democracy on the African continent." Of the numerous methods to achieve these goals, the militarization of the African continent is being undertaken by the White House with the active use of the African Command (AFRICOM) of the US Armed Forces.

LIBERIA: Rebranding Our Nation’s Image from Ebola

Francis W. Nyepon

Liberia has an international problem. Ebola has marred the image and identity of our country shoddily. The virus has shaking the country to its core. It has become a nuisance to our democratic governance process and remarkable GDP growth, which was trumpeted just a few short months ago, as one of the ten fastest growing economies in the world. Regrettably, Ebola has trashed and stained that progressive record and image of Liberia by defining the country, as a place of contagious epidemic, marked by devastation, annihilation and death.

This tragic misfortune has become a source of unwanted stigma, shame and humiliation for our country and people the world over. This global misconception about Liberia needs to be debunked and that negative image about our country refashioned. For example, Say the name Liberia in any part of the world and immediately people have a negative stereotypical image and false sense of what our country has become. Overnight, Ebola has negatively defined what Liberia is and who Liberians are. This is not right. Global attitudes and behaviors are having direct negative consequences on our people, economy, travel and culture. Full article...
