Destabilization of Cameroon; this is Donald Trump's strategy

By criticizing the resolutions of the Grand National Dialogue on Radio France International (Rfi), Mr. Africa of Donald Trump thus warns Paul Biya's country. Back to the American plan.

Obviously, the Americans seem to have oiled their mechanics well, to push Paul Biya to the fault and to make sure to guide him towards the exit. 5 major elements appear as signs. First, at the United Nations general assembly in 2018, at the UN forum, Donald Trump will express his aversion to authoritarian, eternal, enemy of human rights regimes. In the same wake, revealing the real ambitions of the Americans, on the eve of the presidential election, Peter Henry Barlerin, the United States ambassador to Cameroon, at the end of an audience granted to him by Paul Biya, will declare that he had advised him to think of his legacy, like Nelson Mandela and Georges Washington. The Americans have shown by this that they are against yet another candidacy of Paul Biya, knowing that the latter would not pass. Thus, defying the warning, the man of November 06 will not hesitate to stand as a candidate and transform the essay, despite the challenge of Maurice Kamto. The third element comes from the media release of Tibor Nagy, American Under-Secretary of State for African Affairs, on the set of France 24, before his official visit to Cameroon on March 17 and 18. He will then maintain that all the misfortunes of Cameroon are due to the endless reign of Paul Biya. Fourth element: The United States has produced a press release in which it asks the Yaoundé regime to organize a real inclusive dialogue which will see the participation of separatist leaders. Fifth elements: It is Mr. Africa of Donald Trump who will go on the set of Rfi a few days ago indicated that the English speakers want a real decentralization with transfer of resources and not decentralization on paper. He closed his remarks by arguing that the more time passes, the more English speakers want separation. Consequently, the pieces of the puzzle interlocked one with the other and in a predictable way: Paul Biya remains president in a context of deterioration of the security state of the country, the English-speaking crisis worsens more, the State opts for an attack against human rights and public freedoms, to impose itself, thus creating an increasingly deleterious socio-political climate. 

Strategy 

With 5 out of 10 regions in security trouble, with peaks in the North West and South West, Paul Biya has become a danger even for the interests of Americans. Until a fairly recent past, Cameroon gave pledges of stability and peace like no other. In Central Africa, Paul Biya's country was the hub in this area, giving the assurance of being one of the rare ramparts in the Gulf of Guinea, especially in Central Africa. This is no longer the case today. However, for the Americans, Cameroon is a hyper-important platform. This is the reason why, Tibor Nagy, during his visit, will say that investors from his country are interested in the destination Cameroon and that he personally undertook to get them to come to us. Except that nobody is indeed ready to come and invest in a country at war. It's a too risky bet. But, Cameroon being an extremely rich country, the Americans are not ready to let this steak pass.

They are pushing Paul Biya to fault. The Anglophone crisis has opened the doors for them to implement their strategy. First, they know that Paul Biya will never accept inclusive dialogue as they ask, as it would be the beginning of its end. This is the reason why they are counting on targeted sanctions, aimed above all at the security of Paul Biya. If he freezes the funds of these people as it seems to be taking shape, it means that there are risks that these relatives of the president will turn him into a target. That is to say, they turn against the chief. The danger is all the more acute since more and more, even within the seraglio, everyone is afraid of being called to account one day or another in this affair. Until today, the actors of the Rwandan genocide are still on the hot seat. The same is true for the atrocities committed by the Nazis. More and more people are asking questions. Even if the context is not the same, we can clearly observe how the army ended up turning its back on Bouteflika in Algeria. 

The United States, as a superpower, has always used sanctions as an essential tool in its foreign policy. In the DRC, Iran, Venezuela ... As the United States is a superpower, their sanctions are most often followed by sanctions from other Western countries and the UN. Confers the ground floor. 

It should be noted that more often than not, dictatorial regimes that care little about the needs of their citizens often become radical and do not yield to this type of sanctions as was the case with Robert Mugabe, Pierre Nkurunziza and other leaders African. But this could simply be a sign that the Biya regime is gradually being isolated by the international community, which could be detrimental to the socio-economic development of Cameroon. Let us just recall resolution 21/16 of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in 2012 and resolution 25/20 of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in 2014. As a sovereign state, the Cameroon is bound to respect these conventions not to please the international community, but above all for its citizens. This means that the state has the responsibility to protect its populations from four crimes of mass atrocity: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing. Therefore, when the State is unable to discharge these responsibilities, the international community can intervene to encourage and assist the State to discharge its responsibilities. In addition, it is not impossible that under American pressure, the international community presses the Cpi button. There, all these collaborators of the Head of State will turn into wolves for himself, because the time for accountability will have struck. Unfortunately, this may also be the time for denial and denial. Languages ​​will loosen. war crimes, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing.
