Research the Trans Sahara Counter Terrorism Partnership (TSCTP), and discuss the leadership and strategic role of Chad. Considering the president of Chad, Idriss Deby is a “dictator” ruling since 1990 has a terrible human rights record, which includes extrajudicial killings, assassinations, beatings, torture, and rape, why would the U.S. partner with and support a regime that engages in such horrific practices?
The United States and Chad maintain a good relationship due to their mutual involvement in anti-terrorism practices. For instance, Chad has been part of the anti-extremist practices that other African countries are taking part in. The United States alienating Chad increases the chances of the nation teaming up with other African states to jeopardize the security of the United States. With Chad out of control, the level of insecurity and instability is likely to skyrocket in the Central and West African region. The United States stepped in to stop the growth and advancement of the Chadian strength and influence in the area to simmer down the Libyan anti-western forces. This means that in Chad, the United States came in as a friend to help fight off the Libyan troops and prevent the two countries from merging (Patterson, 2018). For Chad, the United States has helped them maintain their independence. The United States finds that it has to compromise and not interfere with the operations of Chad lest it decides to shift its allegiance and leave the United States susceptible to terror attacks that are masterminded from Africa. The United States did not take kindly the Gaddafi led onslaught against the western influence into African politics. His level of control was seen as a terror risk to the United States. In the year 2011, the United States solved Chad’s problem amicably by aiding the elimination of Gaddafi. This broke down the powerful movement that would have seen to it that the United States does not influence the Central and West Africa. Chad can be said to have been instrumental in the elimination of Gaddafi and thus, an ally of the United States. Chad became the destination for peacekeeping and aid teams from the United States. It assisted the United States’ troops with getting into Nigeria and saving the abducted girls. Therefore, Chad and the United States have it in common to deal with terrorist and extremist cases.
