Islamic arch is the strategic centre of gravity

China’s economic development is freeing the countries of the South

The world balance of power is being completely overturned. And the Indian Ocean region finds itself at the heart of the geopolitical storm.
60% of the world's population
70% of the world's oil is shipped through this Ocean

For centuries the West has been looting, But China is offering higher prices for raw materials and is investing in the countries of the South. China has at the same time abolished import taxes on numerous African products. China has also written off the debts of the poorest African countries. China does not interfere in the internal policies. while western powers which never cease creating and bringing down African governments!

western capitalist countries are going through a severe economic crisis while China
continuing with a healthy rate of economic growth. Brazil continued to grow

south-south axis poses two major threats to the imperialist powers,

removing countries that are rich in raw materials from the western sphere of influence
allowing China to access to all the resources it needs to pursue its stellar growth

Washington is therefore seeking to contain the emergence of China and the control of the Indian Ocean lies at the heart of its strategy.

Somalia is the historic Islamic heart of East Africa. They took Sunni Islam all the way to Mozambique.

Before the Suez Canal was opened in 1869, Ottomans, Persians Moghuls and China dominated. This enabled Islam to expand even to China and East Africa. The Indian Ocean came to be largely dominated by Muslim powers.

But a major event, Sepoy revolt in 1857 began the process of European domination
Karl Marx analysed thusly, "Their methods are barbaric, but we should ask ourselves who led them to display such barbarity – it was the British colonialists installed in India". something similar, 11 September. nobody asks what are the factors that have given rise to this kind of terrorism.

sepoy rebellion had two important consequences ; firstly,
management passed officially to the administration of the British government. And
Great Britain deposed the last Islamic ruler of India, the Moghul emperor, Mohammed Bahadur Shah. He was exiled to Burma where he lived out the end of his life.

11 years after the sepoy revolt, the Suez Canal was opened. It was an important factor in facilitating European domination of that ocean. France seized Djibouti. Britain seized first Egypt and then Bahrain. Empire of the Sultanate of Oman was the last great Arabic power active in the Indian Ocean. Europeans mounted a propaganda campaign around the fact that Omanis were exploiting Africans as slaves. Under the pretext of fighting slavery, Europe mobilised and overthrew the Sultanate of Oman

Pentagon is well embedded, base in Okinawa, accords with the Philippines under pretext of fighting terrorism, Indonesian army, base on Diego Garcia

China has two Achilles heels: the straits of Hormuz and of Malacca. The US could block the Straits of Malacca.

China has developed several strategies

A gas pipeline is now linking Turkmenistan to the Chinese province of Xinjiang, 40 billion cubic metres a year, half of current Chinese consumption. also, pipeline linking China to Kazakhstan Caspian Sea.

entered into accords with Bangladesh to acquire gas and oil. an oil pipeline and a gas pipeline which will respectively supply from Myanmar. third Chinese strategy, ‘pearl necklace’. deep water port of Gwadar for traffic in container ships
build others, in Africa in particular. to China from Latin America. these container ships would rather travel via Africa in their journeys between Latin America and Asia
Mozambique, Somalia, South Africa or Madagascar could join this Indian Ocean network.

This will cause a major economic boom in this part of Africa. Marseilles or Antwerp would decline. South-South axis is being established. The world is being turned upside down.

Washington seems still to be mired in the Middle East

the reactionary character of US imperialism has resurfaced
Imperialism cannot be changed or adapted. It has to be overthrown
All the world’s peoples have an interest
putting an end as quickly as possible to the western hegemony that has engendered so much aggression and crime
a grand alliance to emerge
to develop themselves independently and in the interests of their people, i.e., by escaping from the imperialist powers’ looting and interference.
To put an end to the hegemony of the imperialist powers will open up great potential for the liberation of the people of the world.
