Africa’s Latest False Choice

DJIBOUTI – With the rise of Asian economies and their desire to play a greater role on the world stage, it has been suggested that Africa should choose between keeping its partnerships with the West and embracing new alliances with the East. This is the same false choice that African countries were told that they had to make during the Cold War, when the Soviet Union and the West, led by the United States, competed for exclusive influence across the continent.

WASHINGTON, DC – The United States and Europe have grossly overreacted to a few isolated cases of the Ebola virus within their borders. These panicked responses are not just futile.

Moreover, the spread of the deadly, Ebola disease has imposed serious, multiple, negative impact, not only on the socio-economic and political life of the Liberian People, but also threatens a dramatic, unfamiliar change in or of their traditional, socio-cultural way of life, such that the Ebola Crisis may have provided or is the reasonable, legal and moral grounds for postponement of the scheduled, October 2014, Senatorial Elections, to save the State.
