There's been a lot of strong words recently. After the Russia-Africa Summit 2023, President of Eritrea Isaias Afwerki condemned NATO aggression:

“When people talk about Russia and Ukraine, I say that there is no Russia-Ukraine war at all. This is a war that was declared by NATO on Russia. The war declared by NATO on Russia is not only against Russia; its aim is to dominate the whole world.

This is an agenda they developed after the end of the Cold War. They came up with this fantasy about containing Russia, containing any power – small or big – that challenges them technologically, economically, socially, culturally. They have to contain everybody.

This is a defunct ideology...

NATO does not exist. NATO is in intensive care. The EU does not exist. The EU is in intensive care..."

Given the CIA’s track record of overthrowing Left-leaning governments wherever/ however they may occur, I hope Mr Traore can achieve the revolutionary objectives he has set himself! The people of Burkina Faso, like all African populations, deserve much better than they have been allowed to achieve since “independence” from their extractive French/ British colonisers but I suspect the way ahead for this small country will be tough!
