The coup leader rank is steadily declining. I think the last guy was a colonel, this guy's a captain, so December/January's coup should be headed by a sergeant if trends continue.
Living in Francophone west Africa must be stress.

Turn on the TV to unwind after a day of work to see 20 niggas in military fatigues have seized the news station
Vesayet bitti artık. Eskiden paşa hadi bilemedin albay olmak icap ederdi darbe için.
Yet another millennial coup leader in Burkina Faso. Still very early days on which actual faction this is, in terms of pro compaore or anti, or how friendly to France/Russia they’ll be, but if one thing is clear it’s just how deep into NGMI territory Burkina Faso is at the moment

This shot feels like an odd choice. This sort of has a vibe of him not having a ton of guys to back this up. I feel like if your forces were not large you might want to pile as many as you can into a cameras view to overstate how many guys you have.

They should consider coming to Kenya for benchmarking where the Deputy President defeated the President in a democratic process.

The dude with the boot "ARMY" cover is killing me (figuratively, of course, I hope).
In light of events in #BurkinaFaso, this week's episode of @UfahamuAfrica will feature a replay of my conversation with @naunihalpublic about coups.

We are our own enemies Africa. Can't we just follow the constitution? Why do leaders overstay in power and await this?
Who do Africans announce coups on local tv news anchor desks
Was there no coup in this same Burkina Faso few months ago? Kai.

Send the Legion in, they’ll run with their tails between their legs. Problem is France isn’t doing that anymore.
Le pays des hommes intègres et les coups d’Etat c’est une grande histoire d’amour.

The French have really spoilt these W. African French-speaking countries. Or should I say the Africans have spoilt themselves? Check history and read again.
Doyen @aliounetine16, l'avenir de la sous région est () et pleine de ????

Nah, these West African francophone countries are a joke, a complete joke.
This reminds me of when Viking Horn Guy kicked Wolf Blitzer out of his seat when Florida Man was briefly in power after commandeering Nancy’s lectern.

Burkina Faso army captain on state TV announces overthrow of military government
İşte darbe böyle bir şey arkadaşlar. Sadece gelişmemiş ülkelerde yaşanır.
Isn't a Captain a Junior Officer? That Army is unstable.
I remember when there were hopes that coups d'etat in West Africa were a thing of the past ☹️

There was a lot of chatter over the summer about potential Wagner deployments to Burkina Faso. I don’t if this new regime is friendly to them or not but this article from July is interesting

Still a better job than being the Nebraska head coach.
Most of “Francophone”/western Africa are basically lost causes to me

If Africa is ever going to get its shit together, it will have to be in the SADC & or eastern African (& by that I mean Tanzania & or Kenya, because Ethiopia is now also in a mess too with Tigray😭🤦🏾‍♂️) regions
