Danny and Derek welcome Lamin Keita, PhD candidate in political science at Northwestern University, and Alex Thurston, assistant professor of political science at the University of Cincinnati, for a discussion on the situation in the Sahel, namely Mali and Burkina Faso. They talk about the 2022 coups in each country, the role of jihadist conflicts in the region, where the respective junta governments currently stand, the role of the United States in the coups and the Sahel in general, and more.
Truly have no idea how Derek’s brain can hold so much information
I really tried but couldn't get into this one. Your effort is always appreciated.
Thurston and Keita saying US military isn't involved in coups in Africa is a surprising statement. Even more surprising from anyone who has studied US foreign policy in Africa.
One could even call it an outrageous statement?
Guess nobody going to give funding to a historian that would say publicly there's still outright US complicity in foreign coups d'états....
