Can't help but wonder if these military leaders who took over were possibly "encouraged" to do so. Whenever a coup happens in Africa, Western intelligence is usually involved in some way. Niger was unusual in that the "coup" seemed to happen because their military believed their leader was in bed with the west and betraying their country, but it's often the opposite - a leader who won't bow to the west often finds themselves out of power (such as in Gaddafi's case).

China had been making inroads in Gabon (President Xi recently referred to the now deposed Ali Bongo as an "old friend") and Gabon was planning on joining BRICS. I wonder if that will change now.

Lot of things happening in Africa lately as China and Russia on one side and NATO on the other struggle to assert their influence there. There's a lot of natural resources at stake too. Probably more instability in Africa on the horizon as WWIII keeps inching closer.

Sorry about the bad link earlier, trying to repost it:

Corruption is pretty common in African countries (actually nowadays it's pretty common in all countries) but that alone doesn't usually result in a military coup, partly because it's not particularly unusual or surprising, but more so because the military leaders usually are getting a piece of the pie.

It will be very interesting to see if the new government in Gabon reverses course in it's cooperation with Russia and China.

Looks like the French are pretty tough against low IQ populations.

I assume that means the Germans were pretty savvy.

It is simple, younger generation exposed to the internet, and all the information within it. Coupled with rhetoric, arguments/debates online, are bound to influence their decision making process.

Coupled with, the government of Gabon is horrifically corrupt and loots the country as much as the French do. They know if there was no corruption, their quality of life would be far, far, far, higher.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 84615313

No doubt about the corruption and it making people unhappy, but it goes a lot deeper than that. Always does in Africa.

Gabon has been a key in helping Russia sell it's oil despite sanctions, for example:

Also Gabon under Bongo been heavily involved in China's Belt and Road Initiative:

That's just a few examples of why this military coup likely has foreign ties.

If you really want to know how things work in Africa with regards to the west, read up on what really happened in Libya. It's a long read but worth it if you want to know what's really been going on (the rape of African resources by multinational corporations and world powers):

I know nothing about Gabon, but if there was a coup I would strongly suspect the US caused it.

It has a professional military of about 5,000 personnel, divided into army, navy, air force, gendarmerie, and police force. A 1,800-member guard provides security for the president."

Army officers have appeared on national television in Gabon to say they have taken power.

They said they were annulling the results of Saturday's election, in which President Ali Bongo was declared the winner.

The electoral commission said Mr Bongo had won just under two-thirds of the votes in an election the opposition argued was fraudulent.

His overthrow would end his family's 53-year hold on power in Gabon.

Twelve soldiers appeared on television on Wednesday, announcing they were cancelling the results of the election and dissolving "all the institutions of the republic".

They also said the country's borders had been closed "until further notice".

One of the soldiers said on TV channel Gabon 24: "We have decided to defend peace by putting an end to the current regime."

This, he added, was down to "irresponsible, unpredictable governance resulting in a continuing deterioration in social cohesion that risks leading the country into chaos".

lol....you've never been in an African or other Colored country before?!

Its dam* common, I've been through one coup when I was in Africa.

One of the Generals overthrown was also known to my dad, who was in the US military then. Though luckily he was not shot, though the next coup had many shot.

That's why Dumbff & co should be very careful when the Collors and puppetz are ruling in America.
