Comparing to EU and USA only China has provided very much support for development in Africa and has by doing so indirectly helped to limit the desire to may way to Europe. But the peak of migration is not reached.
Given the imminent increase of US military "Black-Ops" to contain Chinese investments in Africa is playing hand in hand with US protection tariffs against China. The budget for USAFRICOM could be spend more effectively then for obstructions like training extremist groups. Its all about natural resources and not humanitarian consideration...
If the next wave of migration starts next year it is Europe which has to carry the burden of migration when African countries are turned into rubble like Libya, Somalia etc... So the EU's hope to relax the thread of yet more migration influxes is just based on added flexibility provided by the "Emergency Trust Fund for Africa" to provide a new impulse to migration cooperation with North African countries, especially Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia its in my opinion not going to work out.
If Sub-Saharan African countries are not directly included in talks with the EU, all the US need to do is to continue to obstruct and to create insecurity, either deliberately or out of stupidity. Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia have to negotiate with Sub-Saharan African countries because these Sub-Saharan countries tend to rely heavily on remittances from diaspora communities in Europe, so reluctant to cooperate. Who wants to live in a country where social instability is the norm?
I really recommend for more on changing migration trends and EU migration policy, see Lisa Watanabe’s latest addition to the CSS Analyses in Security Policy series.
Having a bit fun with my "Mafiosi" before the regatta-season in September begins. The beach at Marie-de-la-Mer in is huge and despite of tourist season in full swing there is much space in the dunes and at the sea.
The latest poisonous gift of the "exceptional nation" to these dull European Right Wing groups was Steve Bannon. The nationalistic big mouth declared his "help" for Europe's die-hards. I wonder if Europe will get more gifts from the "humanitarian liberators" and "regime changers". Or will the real blast of hard-core Nazi's shipped from Ukraine come as "refugees"?
Bannon has almost no experience in European politics. His meetings with such illustrious right-wing people like Viktor Orbán, Matteo Salvini, and Boris Johnson and most of all the clownish former British foreign secretary, all of whom wish him well. Bannon does not see their very different agendas.
1. He does not anticipate in Britain, Johnson stands for, well, Johnson who seem to become the nominee of the clown of the year 2018.
2. Then this Dutch islamophobe demagogue Geert Wilders with his love affair with gay-rights who's loud expressions of love for "Benni Jahuuu" is raising my suspicion he loves Israel such much so Jews can live there and nothing else.
3. France’s National Front, now called the National Rally, is a Le Pen family enterprise which is too busy to get rid of its anti-Semitic, Vichyite roots.
4. The wild card is the NPD off-spring, Germany's obscure "Alternative for Germany", AfD. Germans in the past did not take the very massive support of American Radical Nationalists for serious, so hosting of their websites in Brega, Calif, where used to communicate under the radar of the German Version of a NSA/Homeland-Security which itself was often enough involved in cover-up scandals.
However, that's not much ideological coherence for Bannon. The only thing they're having together is their animosity against Migrants and Muslims, and most of all their anti-EU stance. All this die-hards and wannabe leaders are fabulating about Brussel like Stalin or Hitler about these "anonymous, omnipotent plotters" (Jews and cosmopolitans) who allegedly now have their headquarter in Brussels...
Its for me a bit difficult to understand how these bunch of radical nationalists now want to shape an international alliance if their proclaimed goal is exactly the opposite: do stop globalisation and cosmopolitan life? It bullshit when old men like Soros or the "Russian Roulette Granny", Hillary C are described by Radical Nationalists as an "elite". They are not an elite and even if we would think "elitist", then the goal of those Radical Nationalist is to replace one elite with another elite.
Obviously, the "Stable Genius" is their hero just because he is seemingly an outsider. Nationalist always loved when one strongman is dealing with another. Europeans should remember that nothing good is coming out when looking at the troubled times since Europe's facist movements of the 1930's to 1940's which began with the Spanish civil war and ended with WW2.
These days the English Nationalists are driving their country into a not so prosperous looking future. I even think Nationalists dishonesty, a la Farange and Johnson will soon backfire when it becomes obvious for most of their sympathisers that BREXIT will and can not be a win as they have been promised. The Hungarian big mouth is heading for Chinese money and Putins protection for leverage. Well, yes and our French "petite-bourguois's Angel-of-Revenge" is already so much demanded by her own moment that when it comes to the next election it will more effort in unity or party expediency as the many individuals of the party are totally unruly.
If Bannon counts on Germany, - there is this strange "Alternative for Deutschland", known as AfD which can give some salt in this vegetable soup. With AfD much depends on how much Germany's commercial medias continue to hype these inexperienced, anti-establishment radicals. They simply do not offer anything really substantial and their success is only based on their anti-migrant stance. Somehow they have no really convincing strategy. Even Bannon will get annoyed with their complains about migrants and the good, cozy home country but no real constructive ideas to present to an rather un-political electorate. The AfD only became strong due to Merkel's rather dubious decisions in 2015 which led to incomprehension and passive resistance in most EU member states such as Poland, Hungary, Denmark, Sweden and others. I even believe that their decisions even played a very important role in the BREXIT referendum...
