Will Russia intervene?

NIAMEY, Niger (AP) — Niger’s junta told a top U.S. diplomat that they would kill deposed President Mohamed Bazoum if neighboring countries attempted any military intervention to restore his rule, two Western officials told The Associated Press.

They spoke to the AP shortly before the West African bloc ECOWAS said it had directed the deployment of a “standby force” to restore democracy in Niger, after its deadline of Sunday to reinstate Bazoum expired.

African nations willing to restore Western "democracy" to Niger

Democracy is needed to restore the flow of Niger's uranium and gold to Europe...

Not to mention the natural gas pipeline intended to run from Nigeria , through Niger to Europe.

Democracy for you.........

I prefer a system by the people, for the people, and of the people - attached any label to that system, I am happy!

Im happy & glad that military officers are taking charge to have clean, green & orderly cities/countries! I would like to give credit to Jerry Rawlings, but, I say, Paul Kagame is the man who should get maximum accolades!

Rwanda is beholden to the world bank and IMF

Singapore's economy is intrinsically linked to Western powers
