Why didn’t Obama toy around with long-serving African dictators? What will Barack Obama be remembered by in the way he handled African despots. I am struggling to see his legacy in helping Africans be better equipped to end tyranny and dictatorship. The war in Syria is now a full blown proxy war. A potential one for that matter as evidenced by the activities of the US and Russia.
However, our own African blood can do better by undermining the institutions of oppressions and enhancing political parties get better competition in oppressive environments. Or is our struggle too uninteresting to attraction the attention of the Obama and Putin? no missiles, no guns, simple toying around will do.
