IS IT REALLY A DREAM EVEN TO DREAM “UNITED STATES OF AFRICA”?

I am quite confused to write or not to write about permanent crises in many African countries. You may say that i don’t have to but i feel that i have to emphasise at least some remarkable titles…

The never ending problems in Africa are mostly about political dilemmas of military based regimes as can be seen on television, in the newspapers and through other news sources such as online journalism.

Kindly think that the idea of ‘United States of Africa’… It sounds unrealistic when you visualize all that chaos, doesn’t it? In most of African countries those who have power first visualize what they want and then materialize it .  Actually i must say that “those” who hold the armed forces have also direction to change the socio-politic route to instability, conflict and lost generation without future.

Civil wars seem as a fated destiny for ‘Dark and Beautiful Continent’  by the hands of  Western civilizations and their armed puppets who has nothing to trust but their weapons against civils.

Like or don’t…It’s not the point but Former Libyan leader Muammer Gaddafi who was executed without any judgement by Nato troops was the most well known leader to mention this expression in African Union Summit.in 2009. His dream was to discuss the remained issues of colonialism which divide Africans into hundreds of etnic groups which have been in controversy with each other from the times of  “geographical discoveries.” He knew that the conflicts were the obstructed veins of the undeveloped countries and there wasn’t any possibility to talk about circulation, wealth, peace and stability… I hope that the new chairperson of the African Union Hailemariam Desalegn can make a progress to spread this dream to the members of the Union.

As Turkish poet Onat Kutlar says:

“I asked myself what is made of mud? The Statue.

And made of pains? The love.

Even you can make a revolution with poverties.

But nothing can be made from disunities.”

Instead of struggling with hunger and drought they have been fighting for their seperations.

Instead of keeping their natural sources from the modern colonial interests,

Instead of keeping their children from their own men who work for colonial interests to earn a living from bloody and illegal ways.

Instead of preventing  them to be “child soldiers who are a part of  any kind of regular or irregular armed force or armed group in any capacity.” (for more:

Besides general issues relating to many African countries, Mali is a biggest question mark for me to comperehend for a very long time… It is reported that there is radical islamic groups in the north of Mali and people are living under the pressure of these armed groups. On the other side there is a military construction which seized power with the Western support in 2012.

Last year European Union decided to stop financial aids  to the military based government in Mali. However this year when Malian government asked for support from EU to eliminate the armed groups in the north and United Nations have never hesitated to give permission for the military intervention of France. Thus, France started to bomb the villages and towns in the northern Mali. It is very simple to write this in words but quite saddening to think how many innocent civilians were killed and will be killed in bombardments.

Who will be responsible for the civilians from systematic killings? Who will be judged for the children whose lives were taken in the air strikes?

Who will help to the people fled from the northern Mali?

What was the real reason of UN to allow France for the operations in Mali?

(What if it is all about rich underground resources of the country or to protect the interests of French companies in Mali or to deport Muslim population from Mali?)

Why didn’t they show any interest to constant civilian casualities over 2 years in Syria as being very interested in Libya?

Why they still don’t…

Why no action for the conflicts in Middle East and the other places where Muslim population mostly live.

What a grave contradiction!

Unfortunately, UN and NATO are the question itself  in this story that i can not solve easily…

Une lettre ouverte à Sarkozy!..

In Fanny Lulu's diary on December 24, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Monsieur Nicolas Sarkozy,

Comment allez-vous? Vous avez de gros problèmes avec la Turquie? pourquoi tant agités ?

Could you please tell me since you came to power for what reason you have been fighting with Turkey, your country’s citizens and people who have the relationships with France in every reasonable ways ?

Can a country’s destiny be abandoned to your dirty hands ? How come you play with the international relations as if it’s a child’s toy ? How dare you accuse Turkey of Armenian Genocide without assembling an inquiry commission by being collaboration with the main side ? How dare you throw your people’s today and future in to fire by signing destructive laws ? You must know that it is much easier to ruin a relationship than constructing it. We, Turkish government and the opposition groups are eagerly ready to bring all the facts to light about Armenian Case  which is referred to have been occurred during the period of ancient Ottoman Empire in 1915.

Monsieur Sarkozy, Have you ever heard something about, your country, France’s history ? Have you ever heard something about Algeria, Rwanda, all the other African  and Arab countries in which people were starving to death because of  your colonisation, because of you leaving them behind in the blood, tears and instability…Ok, it is said that the ones who do not react and stand against  a crime, are surely a part of the crime, and Turkey were unfortunately supporting France by abstaining in The United Nations when the independence of Algeria was a current issue in the international area.  Likewise you gave support to Srebrenitsa Massacre which was being carried out by Army of Republika Srpska during the Bosnian War in between 1992-1995. It means that either we, Turkish Government, or French Government must apologise for these crimes  individually in the name of humanity, too…But it’s clear that you, French Republic, must do something meaningful much more than us!

The President Sarkozy, how come you only think your throne in the political arena by ignoring your nation’s rights except Armenian Diaspora voting for your new era presidency…It seems that you have huge problems with Turkish government, The Prime Minister Mr. Erdogan, our European Union membership, Turkish citizens and all the things up to Turkey and Turks.

Monsieur Sarkozy, i wonder if you are jealous with our take off and active role in the Middle East ? As the post colonial era in the Middle East is falling down, you are so many miles away to comprehend the ‘Zeitgeist’ and the parameters of the current situation. There is an expression which obviously fits well in to you : ‘’Cut off your nose to spite your face…’’

We are all well aware of the reality that you hate my country since you’ve been elected as a president and you must know that we don’t love you, either. But the point that i don’t understand is how the French and EU society bear your egoistic behaviours ? I really doubts about that if the EU member states can see the things in the way of intelligence. If it was so, they would keep him away from the dream of being the only one leader and country at the top of the Union. But as we can see with our naked eyes and hear through the media tools, the Union decisions are under the control of the Germany-France and United Kingdom. What a democratic Union this is !

Monsieur Sarkozy,

What is your main target in this ‘ Shadow Game’ ? You passed a law which will punish the ones who say that ‘I deny the Armenian Genocide which was stated to have occurred during the period of First World War in 1915.’ in public just to express what their ideas are about the Armenian Issue.

What will you get but the crown when you destroy all the people’s lives who live, work and have the relationships in both countries ? Will you be indeed pleased with the sanctions which Turkish government will impose to your country due to your political games ? Isn’t it a big shame not to respond to a President’s call when he tried to call you over this emerging news? Where is the democracy, the freedom of speech, all the values remained from The French revolution in 1789 ? Your nation fought to take their humanitarian rights ages ago and now you blew them all away !

The relationship between Turkey, France and of course Armenia will be  going bad just because of you !!!

You are guilty Sarkozy, guilty of being that obdurate, irrational and egoist ! So please try to do something good for the World Peace or at least for your nation!

EU and a country can not be surrendered to your wicked mind and your populist reactions !

It seems that there is always hope for anything in The New Year 2012 but ‘The provocateur Sarkozy’…
