Picture. Washington, DC. The White House Front Door.
Apparently, US Defense Department is set to increase its military budget by eight percent. What for ?
Defense might not embody military engineering while brushing away the essential prevention of conflicts or civil wars. Congo of Sassou Nguesso, the other leader in power by force in Congo for years, is about to be allowed what the others Congoleses of Kinshasa just denied to president Kabila : changing again and again the constitution to stay in power for life.
All this by threatening any opposition to HIS rule of fire.
Yet, a so-called alliance of corrupt congolese organisations either civilian or political are out there chanting their support to the changing of constitution on behalf of Sassou Nguesso, the Extra Builder, they called it. Griotism is an African tradition. If true, why so much congoleses of Brazza are still migrating everywhere ? Where are jobs created by the XXL Builder ?
Really, instead of going warmongering, each time there is a problem, America and the so-called international community must oppose the change of Constitution for electoral purposes, and apply the same ruling they call upon when murdering Gaddafi, one of the only performing leader in Africa.
Sanctions. Assets frozen. Banning from international meeting.. FOR NON RESPECT OF DEMOCRACY PRINCIPLES OF RULING WHICH COMPRISES THE STATE OF LAW.
We, the people are eager to see the World applying this, prior to anything else, as a dissuasive framework.
If Kabila is stepping back and Sassou Nguesso is given a pass above democracy, then what is the role of the UN ? And what the International community is standing for ? Democracy or some untold thing else ?
AFRICA IS AT A TIPPING POINT. RWANDA IS LEADING THE WAY AND THE GENOCIDE PERFORMED THERE CAN BE A CASE OF FORCE MAJEURE. PUT DIFFENRENTLY THERE IS A STRONG RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WHAT IS HAPENNING IN CONGO BRAZZA AND IN AMERICAN DEFENSE DEPARTMENT : PEACE COMES WITH STRONG PREVENTIVE MEASURES AND POLITICAL OPTIONS. THE MILITARISATION SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AT LAST RESORT. IS IT POSSIBLE TO ASK FOR THAT AND ONLY THAT ?
Here is the US issue considered by Global Research
US Military Budget Increase directed against Russia, China and the Middle East. Michel Chossudovsky
A substantial share of the increase in the US military budget that President Barack Obama has asked for will ultimately be directed against Russia, a political commentator says.

I should mention that the F35, the submarines, the ships and so on are ultimately directed against China and Russia, Michel Chossudovsky, the founder and director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) told Press TV on Wednesday.
Some 57 next-generation F-35 fighters, nine new ships and submarines, and construction of new long-range Air Force tankers are among the items included in the budget.
“A large component of this military budget increase will be used to extend the process of militarization in Ukraine on Russias doorsteps, Chossudovsky noted.
According to “pre-decisional” Pentagon documents that obtained by the Associated Press on Tuesday, Obama would ask for $534 billion for the core budget of the Pentagon that projects a $38 billion hike.
The Pentagon said that most of the military budget increase would go to the procurement of new war-fighting equipment as well as operations and maintenance expenditures.
Its a very hefty increase in the so-called defense budget at a time when the United States proclaims to be involved in peace-making operations. It is no longer officially involved in wars.
According to the Pentagon documents, the budget also includes $5.3 billion to equip and train Iraqi soldiers and the so-called moderate Syrian militants to fight ISIL.
Chossudovsky, however, believes that the United States is actually financing the ISIL through Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
He said that
much of the funds which are allocated to the so-called global war on terrorism are actually used to finance these terrorist entities which are supported covertly by US intelligence.
The Pentagon announced that it would deploy about 1,000 troops to train the moderate militants in Syria to combat ISIL terrorists.
The training is expected to begin in early spring and will take place in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar.
