Military coup in Burkina Faso

Postby Kowani » Mon Jan 24, 2022 1:11 am

Twitter source, will update later
Update: Reuters confirmation

First coup of 2022 goes to Burkina Faso, after at least one attempt was put down a few days ago.
President Roch Kaboré has been arrested by the military, who are currently making an announcement on national television as I type this

[OP will be updated with more info as events unfold)

2022 will be the year of military coups predicting it now.

Military coups are honestly fascinating to me
United States of America - A global superpower and head of the OFN, NATO, and a founding member of the Congress of Nations.
American News Network: French Civil War: Battle of Bordeaux won by rebels | Putin of Russia; Janstorm of Sweden announce new military and trade deal | Chinese Parliament ousts President Tsai over OFN blockade | Opinion: are military coups good for a nation? Yes.
NS stats executed by firing squad, this nation is the Celestial American Republic but in our present day. Cursing myself for accidentially installing the autocracy policy :pain:

Strange, I had just confused Burkina Faso with Guinea the other day and thought that it was Burkina Faso that had been couped last year. Turns out, they both were!

Do we know the exact goals and reasons behind this coup?
