Mauritania’s Strategic Significance

 Some clues which might explain why Mauritania under Aziz is a strategically important “security partner”: Free media training by foreign “experts”; more powers for press authority; unprecedented churn in state media at all levels; funding problems for independent media.

darwishism:


الحنين ندبة في القلب ، و بصمة بلد على جسد . لكن لا أحد يحن إلى جرحه ، لا أحد يحن إلى وجع أو كابوس، بل يحن إلى ماقبله, إلى زمان لا ألم فيه سوى ألم الملذات الأولى التي تذوّب الوقت كقطعة سكر في فنجان شاي
