Coup in Niger, ECOWAS talking tough. The US and other nations always jump to condemn coups d’état in other countries. Meanwhile, when bad leadership continues to destroy the affected countries, they do nothing. Sometimes they claim (sometimes insincerely) not to want to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs. Let them tell us how a mad leader should be checked. The next election may be too late. This is not by any means justifying the coup in Niger. By the way, is condemning (sometimes taking actions to reverse the takeover) a coup d’état in another country not interfering in that country’s internal affairs? Each case should rather be evaluated on its merits.
