Since President Trump took office in the White House, the United States’ global policy has taken a 180º turn in order to fulfill the candidate Trump’s promise: “Make America Great Again”. It means fighting for U.S. interests first and making sure America’s security and relations with its closest allies, those who have always been on our side, are kept intact or stronger.
Unfortunately, sometimes the way the U.S. State Department works does not provide the best frame for Trump’s policy to develop, as it is closely guarded by a small army of Democrats that have infiltrated our foreign policy. Their goal is clear: implementing their own policy instead of the one that our President wants for our country. The difference is clear: on one hand, the Democrats didn’t win the 2016 elections and still want to decide, and on the other one, an elected President’s decisions are not applied not respected.
The case of Cameroon is somehow emblematic of the situation. For more than two years, our foreign policy has targeted this African country, despite any logic and the fact it has been one of our closest ally in West and Central Africa for decades. Not once has Cameroon missed an occasion to be on our side and stand with the USA. Still today, when China is literally buying the African continent, Cameroon is still on the United States’ side despite the fact that our Ambassador on the ground, Peter Barlerin, a well known Democrat activist, is been accused of supporting and organizing the opposition.
Fun fact: the US was the first country to congratulate Paul Biya when he was re-elected in last November.
But pressure and lobbying from some members of the Cameroonian diaspora on the Democrats are putting our relationship in danger, especially when it comes to fight terrorism. In the fight against global terrorism, Cameroon is also one of our closest as they are struggling against two enemies of different nature, but using the same means.
In the extreme-North region, the Cameroonian forces are fighting against the Islamic group Boko Haram who pledged allegiance to ISIS in 2015. With the help of the United States, an international task force has been in action to put down the terrorist organization. The war is still raging, especially in Nigeria, where the group is hiding, and using their territory as a base to launch deadly attacks. But with our support (financial and military), Boko Haram is now weak in Cameroon.
In the North-West and South-East region of Cameroon, the situation may look quite different. Cameroon is 80% French-speaking and has a strong anglophone population, that are mostly located in those two areas. The situation of this minority has not always been perfect and still needs improvements. The authorities have since launched a series of meeting to make sure this issue is being taken care of and satisfy the needs from the English-speaking Cameroonians. Still, this was used as a pretext by secessionists to launch a war against the Cameroonian authorities. Their weapon are ugly: human shield, child soldiers, rapes, decapitations, attacks of schools, economic boycott, and so on. The reason behind this can be found in the presence of oil and gas in those regions – managed by American companies.
Terrorist attacks against the population, in schools, on roads, in fields and cities have spread deaths and injuries. Bede Sheppard, from the Children’s Right department for Human Rights Watch, has stated that the method used by the secessionists are the same used by Boko Haram.
Still, the Democrats inside the U.S. Department of State are blind to this reality and their agenda is not taking into account this reality. They focus on the lack of democracy in Cameroon while supporting George Soros agenda and the opposition.
But how accurate is that statement?
During the last presidential elections in 2018 that were held in Cameroon, international observers insisted on the fact that no massive fraud that could question the results were found, and that during the campaign every voice were heard.
Even after the results were contested in front of the Supreme Court, all the debates were held publicly and broadcast live on national television: a first in Africa.
If President Biya’s main opponent, Maurice Kamto, is now prosecuted it’s for one reason: the calls for violence that emerged from his side, resulting in rampages by members of the diaspora of Cameroonian embassies in Paris, Berlin and Brussels. And when some soldiers are committing crimes, they are arrested and judged by the military court.
Moreover, the diplomatic situation in Africa for the U.S. is in danger. China is omnipresent and Russia is making a strong came back on the region as the situation in the Central African Republic shows. When the two main superpowers in the world that are challenging America by placing their forces in Africa, how could we, at the same time, put in danger our relationship with our strongest ally in the region
The U.S. State Department and it’s African Department must be freed from the negative influence of those Democrats that are preventing President Trump’s policy to go into action. 2020 will be an election year, that will show what the American population desires for our country, and how we need to treat our allies, with respect and consideration.
