République centrafricaine, une autre 'guerre de pillage' sur le modèle du Congo-Kinshasa

La clé de la sanglante crise qui s'aggrave en République centrafricaine (RCA) ne se trouve pas dans le conflit armé entre chrétiens et musulmans, comme le martèlent nos médias liés à de puissants intérêts des pays de l'OTAN/OCDE, incluant le géant minier canadien.

Cette clé, elle se trouve dans la géostratégie de cette RCA grande comme la France, son ex-colonisatrice, et riche en ressources peu exploitées (diamants, or, uranium, pétrole, potentiel hydraulique, agriculture, et des terres arables qui attisent de puissantes convoitises extérieures).

The key to the bloody crisis worsening in the Central African Republic (CAR) does not lie in the armed conflict between Christians and Muslims, as encapsulated and repeated ad nauseam by our corporate media linked to powerful interests in NATO/OECD countries -- including mining giant Canada.
