It ought not to be necessary nowadays to point out that there are plenty of republics, which are not democracies, and some monarchies, like those of Norway and Sweden, which are. Why spend time on what is a question of words? It is the facts that matter, not the name.
The concept of Non Linear Wars present Africa with a powerful geopolitical tool to regain control over its resources. It allows Africa to deploy a devastating economic virus against the multinationals that have come to control her resources for the past two centuries and counting.
