those who are going to die salute youIt is a ritual sentence pronounced by gladiators marching before the Roman emperor before the fight
Today, it is we the third world who surely pronounces this sentence in default of other possibilities and vis-a-vis the Western powers whose ships and military planes remind us every time they are a few miles from us.
To please these powerful nations we must give them a large share of our resources.
Our tens of thousands of black and white African students in the English and American high schools of France constitute clean oil deposits for the treasuries of these powers. So thousands of billions take the channel to Western banks to finance studies, internships and purchases of military equipment on the verge of obsolete.
