We are living in interesting times. Interesting indeed because we were fortunate enough to live through the cold war. That we escaped unscathed -sort of, calls for humble thanks giving to the Almighty. Many Nations were not so fortunate. Somalia, Eastern Europe and many other nations have metamorphosised into totaly different sovereigns-some for the better, some for worse. I am troubled however, by the rise of blantant Imperialism in the form of "Western Coalition" or "Coalition of the Willing" or to be blunt America, United Kingdom as the central axis for righting what they presume to be the wrongs in their economic world order. We are now witnessing an exercise of bombardment with impunity by the western forces without due regard to the liberty of other nations. First to face the music was Iraq. The United Nations Security Council has been transformed into a rubber stamp for giving the green light to pulverise and ride roughshod over nations considered by the West to be unacceptable to them. Assasination of foreign leaders formerly done by the Wests secret agencies is now not neccessary. The UN Security Council is now there to give the green light for "Regime Changes". What we are now witnessing in Libya, though partly a product of the Strongman Muammar Gaddafi, is unacceptable. The African Union and the Arab League have all offered lukewarm responses to this turn of events.They are mumbering un-intelligible comments on the current state of affairs. We have a saying in kiswahili"Ukiona mwenzio ananyolewa, wewe tia maji". Western Imperialism wont stop at the Benghazi gates or Tripoli. So long as there is no counter force against them then we should expect more turmoil that originates from the net, and spreads all over Africa and other third world countries. Like I said , we have seen it all, we have lived in very interesting times.
