UK ministers instructed the country’s internal intelligence Body, MI5, to focus on Russia, China, and Iran, and not terrorists as was reported in several outlets (here). The directive suggests that terrorists will not be attacking the UK, despite being resurgent in 2024 and attacking Russia’s Crocus Mall, Iran, and Chinese citizens in Pakistan in attacks killing hundreds of civilians. Why is the UK letting down guards on terrorists and training guns on countries targeted by extremists?

The US policy in Africa is centered on endless military intervention and bombing civilians and infrastructure (for instance, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and nations of Sahel for over 30 years), even while terrorism and Islamist militancy have expanded. This policy has distracted Africans from socioeconomic development. While the US seeks to expand its footprint and ‘terrorism’ justification, Some African nations are seeking a new future by…

The US security policy based on the reckless, and imperialist Wolfowitz Doctrine is collapsing, but Washington cannot admit either the policy or failure for fear of losing already waning credibility. The Wolfowitz Doctrine was an unofficial name given to an earlier version of the US Defense Policy Guidance (DPG) 1994-1999, which leaked…

Kenya’s president in Washington on 23rd May 2024, to mark the 60th anniversary of the US-Kenya relations. While announcing the visit, the White House listed its other purposes including celebrating partnership, strengthening commitment to peace and security, expanding economic ties, and defending democracy. Still, it added other areas of engagement including people-to-people ties, trade and investment, technological innovation, climate…

The US is ideologically inclined to support Israel in its endeavor to eliminate Palestinians and establish a larger Israeli state, as a way of legitimizing its creation model. As Israel continues with Rafah Operation, completely blockades to ultimately eliminate Gazans (as a people) and occupy the land many leaked plans show, Washington looks at Israel with the pride a father has for a child that shows his traits he cherishes…

In the first week of May 2024, The US had to demonstrate to its chauvinistic allies that it can still lead them in running an apartheid global system where its camp operate above international law, while treating the rest as second-rate citizens. By April 30th and May 1st 2024, massive college protests spread across the US, where students demanded an end to Israeli genocide against Gaza (here, here and here), while…

Scholars have noted ongoing neocolonialism, in which former colonial governments and their corporations extract value from Africa’s resources without commensurately benefiting Africans (here, here). However, the US and Western Europeans’ strategy to recolonize Africa has escaped scholars and leaders from the Global south. Western leaders have meticulously concealed this goal, but indiscrete ones such as Boris Johnson and Erik Prince have revealed it…

It is customary for the UK foreign ministry and the Ministry of Defense (MoD) to boast how the country assist its allies including Kenya to maintain security by training the latter’s military and police and also deploying soldiers in these allies’ territories. London has repeatedly insisted on its ally Kenya to sigh ‘defense’…

Black American’s Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s coincided with African’s fight for freedom from colonialists, and the response to both groups’ activities was similar in that the US and Europeans promised to allow the demanded rights but continued with exploitation. Martin Luther King Jr.’s (MLK) “I Have a Dream” speech (here) of August1963 occurred in the year when decolonization was occurring in earnest across Africa. Kenyans had secured internal governance in June, and would become a republic in December the same year…

The author has repeatedly argued that the US and the UK have been fighting in Gaza, and the Middle East using Israel, a reality that was revealed in the UNSC meeting of April 2nd convened to discuss Israeli bombing of the Iranian embassy in Damascus. The US, UK, and France blamed…

The appropriate name for the UK’s behavior of clinging to its former colonies and herding them to advance its neocolonial goals can be understood through reviewing Stockholm’s Syndrome: London behaves like the extreme version of the captors in this story. Stockholm’s Syndrome attained its name from strange behavior exhibited by victims that developed empathy and sympathy for their captors, and London as a former captor of colonies tried to conjure up a misplaced sense of partnership with its former colonies, now hostages…

A multipolar world is taking shape even in the military realm, as can be inferred from Houthi’s ability to curtail the US and UK goal of propping up Israeli genocide in Gaza at all cost. Houthis persistence and continued ability to inflict damage on Israeli, American, and British vessels transiting through Bab el Mandeb until Israel lifts its medieval blockade on Gaza shows that the western empire’s military dictatorship can be resisted by small countries. Meanwhile, the western empire desperately seeks diversion from its failure in the Red Sea…
