LETTER TO THE EDITOR : Ukraine: A proxy war between Russia and USA

- Advertisement -

Dear Editor,

The war in Ukraine has nothing to do with Ukraine but the USA and Russia. The question is why the Ukrainian president allowed his country to be consumed in a war that will destroy his country and end his presidency.

The non-imperial power countries of the world should question why Russia and China have not come up with a new global reserve currency and trade payment systems.

That will be the solution to the economic exploitation wars. No country has the right and the powers to subjugate and exploit the economies of the weaker and smaller countries through military force.

Just like slavery and colonialism are abhorrent and crimes against humanity, the so-called international system, global reserve currency and trade laws and payment systems, are the same exploits of slavery and colonialism and should be defeated.

Russia and China should come up with a new global reserve currency and trade payment systems.

Any country that wants to stay under slavery and colonialism has the right to but the world cannot be stuck on the savages of wars, exploitation and the plunder of the economies of the smaller and weaker countries through economic wars and an imposed kangaroo international order by the big boy countries.

President Xi of China and Putin of Russia have the political, financial, economic and technological development powers to bring to an end the global economic exploitation and subjugation dubbed the international system.

And put the IMF and the World Bank out of business.

A new international financial, trade and payment systems are needed to put the countries of the world out of their misery. Russia and China are the only countries that have the powers to lead the transition into the new dispensation.

It’s long been coming and the change is unstoppable.

The Ecowas under the leadership of Nigeria should press ahead with the adoption and launch of the Eco single currency. France can eff off!

No to imperialism and the economic exploitation and subjugation of other countries! A new world order in finance, trade and commerce is the answer and solution to the wars of economic imperialism.

Re: EU says use of state resources gave advantage to NPP in last election

Dear Editor,

The EU Election Observation Mission (EOM) reported several campaign malpractices during the recent presidential election campaign including abuse of state resources by President Barrow’s NPP and said that gave advantage to NPP in last election. 

But in 2016 APRC had state resources and lost. In the 2017 National Assembly election, Coalition 2016 used state resources, won some and lost some seats. The question is what is the main driver of elections in The Gambia? This will be a nice master’s degree or PhD thesis. Until then, all these are hypotheses which may never be proven. The 2022 National Assembly elections will come with surprising results as the people are aware that power is in their hands. They can hire and fire the elected officials. Thanks

Dear Editor,

These are the evidences that the Supreme Court denied Gambian people to see when UDP filed for petition for annulment of the fraudulent presidential election. The UDP is finally vindicated and it has become clear that President Barrow stole the election with the help of the corrupt IEC and the Supreme Court. Now it is confirmed that electoral coup took place to subvert the will and aspirations of Gambian people. Mr Barrow’s presidency is illegitimate and fraudulent in the eyes of the Gambian people and international community.

Dear Editor,

Who gives a damn about what any foolish old EU parliamentarian has to say? Why now and let him prove that claim of abuse of state resources. In fact in politics and elections all over the world, money – huge amount of money – are used to canvas for votes. If a party cannot mobilise resources to reach every corner of the populace, then that party is doomed. In Germany, France, UK and USA, money is the oil of the engine of politics.

Dear Editor,

The Standard please get over it, it’s done. May be 2026. I read the same report on The Point newspaper but it is completely different from how you reported it. We know you, but you will never succeed. Stop being a PR agency [for the opposition].

Dear Editor,

In Europe it is the same. That is the advantage of being powerful. As long as we depend on Europe to bless us, we will never prosper. They are the very people deporting Gambians and Africans while they walk freely in our backyards. I do not support misuse of state resources but I will never condone Western hypocrisy and machinations. This is why Mali kicked them out. Unfortunately our media help them to proliferate their ideology. We need journalists with critical mind who look beyond the surface of issues, not journalists who only attend events and report verbatim. Europe will never build Africa. We must be key players in our democracy and development. The Western agenda is just to fragment and pillage our resources. When shall we stop worshipping Europe? As I write now the EU has its own problems that it cannot solve. Millions of EU citizens are out of work and millions more live in bad conditions. But when they come to Africa, they would pretend to be perfect and want us to see them as messiahs who have come to rescue us. In reality, all their movements in Africa are calculated to divide us.
