Mali and Burkina Faso have officially announced that they will declare war if Western-controlled nations invade Niger. No one has to invade Niger, Mali, or Burkina Faso. Just cut off all aid.
- Mali and Burkina Faso each have a GDP of $19 billion, but nearly ten percent of that is foreign aid.
- Niger is even worse off, with almost 20% of its GDP being foreign aid
In fact, each of those countries has relied upon foreign aid as their number one industry. Niger’s main export is Uranium, but nearly all of the proceeds from that are taken by its government. The remainder of the nation relies on subsistence farming.
Agricultural activities occupy 70% of Mali’s labor force and provide 42% of the GDP. The nation is an exporter of gold, but like Niger, the government takes all of the revenue from that.
Just cut off the financial aid, and they will be back to begging within a few weeks.
