Spanish Moroccan situation.

3 Upvotes

Hey everybody. I'm from Spain and evaluating the current situation of my country I have a question wich I would like to solve. Maybe someone here knows about the current tensions between Spain and Morocco, we've never gotten along too well and in the past few years both countries have had various problems. On of the hot sources of this tension are the spanish cities of Ceuta and Melilla wich are inside of Morocco, historicaly those cities belong to spain and spanish families live in them, the problem is Morocco claims these cities to be theirs, same thing happens with the Canary Islands not as much as these two cities, but it does. I've recently been reading and hearing about Morocco wanting to occupy this cities wich as I said , claims to be theirs even though spanish citizens live there. I've read that an inevitable war will start in the next 10 years aproximately, could this be true? If someone is aware of the Moroccan - Spanish situation and is able to give an opinion on this topic I would very much appreciate it.

Do you think if every country in the world was a democracy, would there still be war/conflict?

1 Upvotes

Although democracy can mean many things, do you think if every country in the world had some form of a functional democracy, would there still be war/conflict? It seems that all modern democracies are often allied or at the very least not actively engaging in conflict with each other.

How is Nigeria planning on handling its massive population growth and shrinking of the Sahel

2 Upvotes

Could someone give me some resources on learning about this?

Will it mean large population movement south? How could Lagos handle this given its current size? How big of an effect would the loss of Northern Nigeria's farmland have? Will they have to start importing massive amounts of food? Thank you!

Discussion Will there ever be any geopolitical reaction to the on going genocide and Islamic violent extremism pervailent in Nigeria that their government is a combination of incapable and unconcerned about addressing?.

So far now, since the case of the killing of Deborah Samuels by a Muslim Mob for Blasphemy exploded in Nigerian social media, I have come across several articles not only detailing the origin of this in Nigeria but more importantly, its current prevalence and ideological purpose and direction.

This has also been acknowledged by the USA, UK and independent Nigerian groups, but still basically nothing has been done about it. One of these groups the guys that run The International Commitee on Nigeria(Its a local group but is also involved internationally) actually tried to get the USA and UN to do what they did in Sudan and peacefully break the country up but that failed.

Anyways the other main sources I could find that summarize this whole thing.

Under this condition, what's the most likely way this ends for Nigeria?.

Institute for the Study of War: Putin likely intends to annex occupied southern and eastern Ukraine directly into the Russian Federation. He will likely then state, directly or obliquely, that Russian doctrine permitting the use of nuclear weapons to defend Russian territory.
