A nation which cannot maintain its own security has lost its sovereignty. A national security policy is an orientation to defending a state against threats, ensure the survival of a nation, safeguard the autonomy of government, and protect the regime of the day from external coercion or undue influence.
There are three armed forces in the Gambia today all under different commands:
(1) ECOMIG Forces (financed by France)
(2) Senegalese Forces (financed by the Gambian Tax payers)
(3) Gambia Armed Forces (financed by the Gambian Tax payers)
President Barrow in a statement to the ECOWAS characterizes our patriotic Gambian armed forces as “repressive mechanism” and the foreign troops as “stabilizing force”. The minister of defense, in a radio interview with Pa Nderry Touray, claims that ECOMIG is a “peace-keeping force”. Morale within the ranks of the Gambia Armed Forces is at a historic low and their Commander-in-Chief does not trust his own Gambian security forces. President Barrow has effectively surrendered the sovereignty of the Gambia to Senegal. Barrow and his entire cabinet have betrayed their own motherland with unfathomable mendacity, subterfuge, and stupidity.
