Why do Western countries support terrorist groups like Daesh in Africa?
Western countries have south new methods to continue their colonialism in Africa and plunder the wealth of this continent in other ways after their old approach began to fail.
Wealth such as huge reserves of oil and gas, minerals and natural resources.
These Western powers, under the pretext of investing and assisting the nations of Africa, are seeking to exploit their vast reserves of oil and gas, as well other natural resources, for their own interests.
Even now, despite the fact that African countries have gained indolence from their former colonial rulers, the West is inciting sedition and discord in these countries to gain leverage and capitalize on the continent’s conflicts.
The presence of terrorist groups in Africa is an excuse for Western powers
to re-enter these countries. This was seen in the
French military intervention in Mali and the US military intervention in
Somalia. This has raised doubts
about the connection of Western countries with terrorist groups.
One of the most important ways to continue dominating Africa for Western countries is military intervention in the region with the aim of destroying national liberation movements and assassinating their leaders.
Western countries, including France and Britain, have plunged African
countries into debt and conflict, leading to erosive wars and military coups aimed
at changing their governments.
In addition to Daesh (ISIS), the US and Arab allies like Saudi Arabia have helped the al-Qaeda terrorist group to expand from Afghanistan and infiltrate various African nations.
According to reports, al-Qaeda used Mali to reach Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and create the Boko Haram terror group.
After the assassination of Boko Haram leader Mohammed Youssef in 2009, Abubakar Shekau took over the leadership of the terrorist group in Nigeria, and Boko Haram continued to spread in African countries.
Recently, the killing of Shekau in an explosion paved the way for its rival group ISIS to infiltrate further into Africa.
