It would be a naïve to believe that the treaty is stand as it was before the US interrupted the semi-autonomous of one-city-state of ours. If third party is involved in the equation, especially superpower likes US, the erratic movement of the US, such as attacking the neighbouring countries from Djibouti like Somalia, Yemen and possibly provokes Eritrea.
The Eritrea case is specially interesting one, it could be a mutual interest for both countries US and Djibouti ,for IOG state of war could rally the much needed patriotic mode after the majority population get desolation the way that their countries over taken by the foreigner and minorities. On the other hand US government are frustrated with Eritrean interference with US interest in the region, historically the US tries with much unilateral political and economical sanction, for example put a political sanction on Eritrean diplomatic personal movement in and around Washington DC in early 90th. But all the sanction didn’t word until today.
IOG could facilitate the regime change in Eritrea was and is the option. Since the US never shies away the regime change from Granada, Panama ……… recently Iraq whatever the US pretext maybe. Well rule of the game is the same; the US uses friendly dictator against the one that it sees immediate threat to its interest, the same way that IOG uses different group against each other to hang on the power for little bit longer.
“2002 September – Djibouti says it won’t be used as a base for attacks against another country in the region. Some 900 US troops set up camp in support of US-led war on terror.”
“DJIBOUT, Jan. 12 2007 – Djibouti, which hosts a large United States anti-terror base, has condemned this week’s US air strikes in neighbouring Somalia. Foreign Minister Mahmud Ali Youssouf told the BBC that the raid was counterproductive to achieving peace. He said his government had not received prior warning about the strikes, which are reported to have been launched from the US base in Djibouti on Monday.”
Another classical leadership in absentia and US perhaps not respects the initial agreements according to the Djiboutian statement mentioned above.
Well, It would be a wishful thinking that the Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation between France and Djibouti of 27 June 1977 stand as it was, the current situation, the new unintended added risk that IOG is responsible for by breaking the local and international laws automatically annulled the treaty, This is the reason that the French government isn’t fully backing up IOG and the artificial war!. There is a host of legal implications needs to be sort out before the French could guarantee again the security of its former colony.
