EU is set to launch a new mission in West Africa


The EU is set to launch a new mission in West Africa in the fall, a German newspaper has reported. The combined military-civilian operation will aim to prevent instability triggered by jihadi groups.European Union member states have agreed to begin a mission in the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa, with police and soldiers deployed to Ghana, Togo, Benin and Ivory Coast, German newspaper Die Welt am Sonntag reported on Sunday, citing diplomats.According to the paper, the mission will aim to train and advise local security forces, help prepare for anti-terror operations, give technical support and implement confidence-building measures in the security sector.The mission is to be launched after formal approval is given by EU foreign ministers at a meeting in October in Luxembourg.The reason behind the planned mission is the EU's concern that Islamist groups "could extend their activities in West Africa from the Sahel zone toward the southern coastal countries on the Gulf of Guinea, leading to even more widespread instability in the region," Welt am Sonntag reported.Militant activity from extremist groups linked to "Islamic State" and al-Qaidahave rocked countries such as Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso in recent years.The EU also wants to counter Russian influence in the region which has been spread through Wagner mercenaries who have supported military regimes in the Sahel. The situation was further complicated for the EU after Mali kicked out French and German forces that had been training Malian soldiers and police.Benin and Ghana had already officially invited the EU to deploy the mission on their territories, according to the paper.The report comes as several countries in the region have fallen under military governments following coups, the latest being on July 26 in Niger. Military juntas have also taken power in Mali and Burkina Faso.The fall of Niger to junta control has been especially concerning as it had been a key ally to Western powers operating throughout the region. tj/ab (AFP, Reuters)KEY TAKEAWAYS: - They’re deploying “Police and soldiers” on African soil!???- Mission will be launched after formal approval is given by EU foreign ministers! - Benin Republic and Ghana had already officially invited the EU to deploy the mission on their territories???Wait! What??? Okay, if you have followed my reporting long enough, you must have heard me say it over and over again, that AFRICA is the new Ukraine for them. One of the first reports I published over the Niger crisis detailed what you’re now reading in this exclusive report. I made it clear that this is all about the battle between RUSSIA and the west and the fact that RUSSIA has chosen to throw its weight behind Africans in their quest to break lose from colonial enslavement. The battlefield has shifted and if you ever doubted that, there you have it. The effrontery to send Police and Soldiers to our continent when we are not living in slavery era is enough to help you see what an incredibly historic time we live in, as AFRICANS. It’s a generational TURNING POINT. The west is losing big. Everywhere you turn, they’re losing. Even their own world bank just reported that Russia’s GDP has surpassed that of Europe amidst sanctions! And now they’re also losing AFRICA, which has been their sole provider. It’s fight to finish and God will not forgive any one on the continent who makes it easy for colonizers to continue to entrench themselves on the continent of AFRICA. Africans! Let’s wake up en masse and be vigilant. This has got to STOP! If we were treated so well, there would be no Russian Wagner on the continent of AFRICA. To beat Africans for generations and tell them not to cry is the height of maniacal arrogance. My confidence is that THIS IS OUR TIME and no force on earth can defeat an IDEA whose time has come. Africans will resist this with everything in them.
Viva Africa!
