The problem called Barack Obama

16 November 2012, 10:15

Just last week America hosted its most expensive election so far ,it was estimated that the election was

worth 6 billion USD(that is a dollar for every person in the world)

Barack Obama came  out as the winner of this mammoth election with no less than one and half

million more votes than his  close  competition ,the last election in 2008 Obama won by 10 million

more votes than his rival competitor mr  Mcain ,this marginal victory over votes was a clear indication

that the American public was beginning to ask difficult quetion  about Obama's  administration and

the American economy

America has 7% unemployment rate with the economy on the brink of yet another reccesion with

America population being  300 million that is 5% of the world population and consumes 30% of the

world production of oil,it is sometimes said that in a day New York consumes more  oil than the whole

of Africa ,with two out of the top seven supplier  oil to America being on the continent of Africa

(Angola,Nigeria) one needs to further look at     US- Africa relationship which was and will always be

non mutual benefiting

In October 2007 while Obama was still senator he gave the Leon Sullivan foundation a response to their

presidential town hall Africa Questionnaire  Obama stated 'Africom(the military base established in

2008 for Africa) should serve to coordinate and synchronise our military(USA) activities with our

objectives in Africa' he further said 'there will be situations   that require the United States to work

with patners to fight terrorism with LETHAL FORCE',during the launch of AFRICOM vice admiral Robert

Moeller the deputy of AFRICOM speaking at an AFRICOM conference held at the national defence

university at  Ford Mcnair he said'the free flow of natural resources from Africa to the global market

was one of AFRICOM'S guiding principles and OIL disruption is a major challenge to US interest in Africa'

 This was contradiction to why was AFRICOM invented which  the US department of state explained as

'the US military's new command center for Africa (AFRICOM will play a supportive role as African

countinues  to built democratic institutions and establishing   good governance across the continent

,AFRICOM'S foremost mission is to help Africans to archive their own security and to support Africa

leadership efforts'

America's relationship with Africa has not always been  that of mutual benefit with America supporting

dictators  ,Mobutu of Zaire (1965-1997),Houphet Boigny of Cote d'ivoire(1960-1993),Ian Smith of

Rhodesia now Zimbabwe(1953-1980),Said Barre of Somalia  1978 -1991),Arap Moi of Kenya

(1978-2003),Hastings Banda of Malawi (1967-1995),Omar Bongo of Gabon(1967-2009) and the

apartheid regime of South Africa (1910-1994),because the US foreign plolicy Africa is always being pre

determined  with  the presidency of Barack Obama will be that of natural and oil resource

management than of African live improvement

In 2009 Israel embarked on a military action against Palestine which saw 1500 people dead in a

week,with Israel apparently getting more American aid than Africa a no fly zone was never issued to

prevent such lost of live but in 2011 Libya was issued with a no fly zone restriction with apparently only

20 people losing they lives  in a week ,this selective amnesia of law enforcing was due to the fact that

Libya is ranked 15 in the countries producing oil ,the big appetite of America of Oil and other minerals

and raw  materials  makes it a threat to world peace  especially  Africa

But president Obama is a shame to the continent of Africa  with the American constitution classifying

his wive and kids as 3/5 human being,which basically reduces them to secondary citizens

God bless Africa
