deployed there on the force that france has no the most of them to save human lives . a month later and lives are still being lost on all sides. france's sixteen hundred strong force appeared and mabel to put an end to ethnic tensions dating back to the central african republic independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty four through france a former monopoly is responsible for helping to create in africa a number of totally artificial states like ca are and now they jump in with this operation which is stupid militarily economically and politically dangerous scandalous from a human perspective and lead to zero results that zero results if we are talking bringing stability to the country but alan creepin president of france is new and capitalist party believes there is more to paris's decision to intervene your fourth fifth france used to pretext of human rights and in fact it was aimed at
protecting its economic interests in the c.a.r. is rich in resources but it mostly has value due to its strategic location in the center of a vast and rich area so it's eventually all about dominating and controlling the entire region. but others see the african country central location on the continent as the key to fulfill the stated goals of the french military mission of securing the entire region. france and other european countries are threatened by islamic radical and terrorist groups that are now decentralized and developed in the belt from the mercian timi a coast to somalia. and french troops deter these dangerous forces and also prevent pirates and drug traffickers from uniting. but would both critics and advocates of the french military operation in the central african republic equally agree on is that no matter what the intentions are behind france's authority's decision to get

well for a notorious case from the institute of oriental languages and civilizations says this particular significance and when france decided to act. first of all the central africa was. under french through and since they became independent it's not through the french army and soon central africa second point is because former central african president was kicked out from power work just at the moment when he signed agreement with chinese. oil companies dime france didn't react and it is very important to serve chinese economy is growing economy and it's. an economy much more active in africa. all the western economies and i think that's one of the basic reasons of conflicts in africa it's to compute issues between western powers

welcome back now while the death of nelson mandela was the end of an era for most of the world one group of people fear it could spell the end for them with the anti-apartheid icon gone some members of south africa's white minority believe anneke and genocide are just around the corner and that's despite reassurances from politicians over the country's stability. as the story most of the black people say
as soon as mandela dies or little white people are going to die like flies the duplicity family live in south africa's employment under provinces in a predominantly white neighborhood they belong to a group called to say planned is who convinced it's only a matter of time before the country's white population is slaughtered by the black majority in their garages full of supplies in preparation for d.-day so we are together now for diesel and fuel for of a different vehicles we get or the no fuel to you to last us about a thousand five hundred kilometers this story chad's going to go on our vehicles that is for making food and keeping warm then. prep myself with some cereal some pastors rise all that's kind of stuff that can last a long time then we've got some crates of food as well we've got a water purifier inside here that will take us when we get to
