Bolton says its time for African countries to do more to take the lead against militants on the continent
Bolton says that all too often the establishment of UN peacekeeping missions in Africa is "the end of creative thinking." Said in earlier speech the US would no longer support unproductive, unsuccessful, and unaccountable UN peacekeeping missions.
Billions of dollars of US aid have not stopped terrorism, radicalism and violence and have helped China and Russia take advantage of African states, says @AmbJohnBolton. US "will not longer tolerate this pattern of aid without effect."
China "predatory actions" in Africa are a sub-component of Beijing's strategic initiatives to expand its economic and military power, says @AmbJohnBolton in speech at @Heritage.
