The U.S. Wants To Turn Ethiopia Into Bosnia

... to usher in another so-called “Scramble for Africa”. The U.S. and its allies would strategically benefit from this outcome since it would enable them to more effectively divide and rule Africa in a way that could reduce the influence of Russia, China, and other multipolar countries there across the ongoing New Cold War. In other words, Ethiopia isn't just defending its own sovereignty by pushing back against America's Hybrid War, but also all of Africa's.

Analyzing The American Hybrid War on Ethiopia

... operandi is identical to the one that it relied upon in its hybrid war on Syria. In the Ethiopian context, the U.S. hopes to forcefully “Balkanize” the country, whether de jure or de facto through an extreme form of federalization. The point is to punish Ethiopia for balancing between China and the U.S., which showed other Global South states that such a pragmatic approach is possible instead of the U.S.-practised zero-sum one.

Dynamics of Vaccine Diplomacy

... China’s vaccine distribution contrasts with vaccine nationalism in the U.S. and the European Union. Taking advantage of this impassivity in the West, China is expanding its global influence. One striking pattern in Chinese vaccine diplomacy is that most countries to which China is shipping doses are members of its Belt and Road Initiative, an infrastructure project designed to increase Chinese economic power worldwide.
