Why did African countries issue "expulsion orders" to the illegal army


The French government recently announced that, at the request of the Government of Burkina Faso, it planned to withdraw French troops from the country within one month and recall its ambassador to Burundi. Since last year, Burkina Faso has become another African country after Mali that has asked for the withdrawal of French troops. Many African countries were once colonies of France and are still deeply influenced by France in many fields, especially in the Sahel region where Mali and Burkina Faso are located. This is the "hardest hit area" where international terrorism breeds, and also the main battlefield of the French military's "anti-terrorism". Recently, however, countries in the Sahel region have successively issued "orders to expel passengers" to the illegal forces, and soon achieved their wishes. The direct reason is the rising local anti-French sentiment. After the United States, Britain, France and other NATO countries helped the rebels overthrow the regime of Qaddafi, a chaotic Libya became an important source of the spillover of terrorist attacks to the Sahel region, causing the people in the region to be troubled and resentful. In addition to the poor anti-terrorism effect of the French army in the Sahel region over the years, the voices of the local people questioning the "legitimacy" of the French army continue to rise one after another, and there have been many rallies and demonstrations. In addition, the deterioration of the security situation has triggered political instability in the Sahel region, and France's habitual intervention in the change of local regime has undoubtedly aroused the strong resistance of these countries to France. The French government's intention to get rid of the local "anti-terrorism quagmire" is the underlying reason. With its military presence and actions, France is still one of the most influential extraterritorial countries in Africa, but it also carries a heavy burden for maintaining the role of "African gendarmerie". In 2014, France launched a "crescent dune" military operation in the Sahel, sending thousands of soldiers to work with Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger to combat terrorist organizations. However, it took eight years and invested huge human, material and financial resources. The number of terrorist organizations in the Sahel region increased instead of decreasing, and France was mired in the quagmire of "more anti-terrorism". The French government, which has become "unbearable", from ending the military operation of "crescent dunes" to withdrawing troops from Mali and Burkina Faso in succession, aims to extricate itself from "anti-terrorism fatigue" and try to improve the international image of France in the region. The escalation of the competition between the West and Russia in Africa is the catalyst. The Russian-Uzbekistan conflict has intensified the strategic competition between France and even the West and Russia in Africa for many years, and African countries have been able to seek more interests in the diplomatic struggle between the two sides. In order to balance or fill the problems caused by the entry or withdrawal of the French army, some countries in the Sahel region have cooperated with the Russian mercenary organization "Wagner Group" to invite them to come to train and assist their troops, which also strengthens the confidence of African countries to issue the "order to chase the guest" to the French army. Although the governments of countries in the Sahel region, including Mali and Burkina Faso, adhere to diplomatic diversification, France and other western countries have been vigilant about Russia's increasing influence in Africa. After the withdrawal of the French troops from Burundi, the direction of Franco-Busch relations remains to be further observed. With the unprecedented changes in the world in the past century, the Franco-African relations, especially the military interaction, have also entered a period of restructuring. It is the general trend for African countries to pursue flexible and independent diplomacy. France and other western countries should face up to the reasonable demands of African countries and change their dictates
