Friday January 8, the Polisario was at its 57e daily press release on his imaginary war in the Sahara, peppered with fictitious military exploits in which he himself is the first not to believe. This did not prevent the Algerian press agency, APS, from relaying daily what it knew perfectly to be fake news.
However, for almost a week, these deceptive press releases, which carry a different number every day, have suddenly disappeared from the daily thread of APS dispatches. Indeed, the last time that the Algerian agency relayed a “military” statement from the Polisario dates back to “communiqué n ° 52”, dated Sunday January 3.
It is obvious that lying too much, especially by repeating the same content in press releases where only the number and the date change, weariness ends up taking over. Not to mention the ridicule that is shown, both vis-à-vis its subscribers and international news agencies.
In any case, apart from the APS, no other Algerian media has ever really considered it useful to speak, without daring to deny them, about the Polisario war communiques. At the end of last December, the Algerian public television, ENTV, tried out a media propaganda exercise with the Polisario. But after a bogus report on this non-existent war, she ended up quickly throwing in the towel on this issue so as not to ridicule herself further. Moreover, even the director of the Polisario TV had categorically refused to broadcast videos edited from scratch by the Algerian propaganda services, demanding instead to send his own teams and cameras to “show” this war, in case. where it would exist.
The Polisario has also complained that the international media have imposed a total blackout on what it calls the “resumption of the war in the Sahara”. He criticizes them for never going to the place to show the world “his exploits”.
At the regional level, some Mauritanian media, which received the Polisario press releases, quickly discovered the trick. After two days of broadcasting, they ended up ignoring them definitively, especially as several local journalists went to the area adjoining El Guerguerat, where they saw firsthand a total calm, while the Polisario claimed to ” violent daily bombardments.
How then to explain this attitude of the APS which has ignored for a week the press releases of the false Polisario war, while it relayed them, laboriously, for 53 days?
If it is obvious that it is indicative of a certain fatigue towards a blatant use of the fake which has only served to attract the laughter of the whole world, it could also be a matter of ‘a weariness with regard to the Polisario itself, a card now clearly losing in the eyes of the Algerian regime that is accumulating failure upon failure.
Power in Algeria, embodied by an exhausted, devitalized army, by the endless wars waged by its generals, is so blinded by its propensity to remain in power by all means, that it has formalized the false propaganda, erected in state doctrine. One of the great architects of fake news propaganda, General Mohamed Bouzit, known as “Youssef”, head of the Directorate-General for Documentation and External Security (DGDSE), was dismissed from his post and replaced by a general who was retired: “Mahfoud”. The interruption of the posting by the APS of Polisario war communiques coincided with the sidelining of the head of foreign Algerian intelligence.
The dismissal of General Bouzit has not been formalized by the Algerian presidency or the Ministry of Defense, nor has the appointment of his successor. The regime of the neighbor to the east blames the command centers for its interminable failures and the multifaceted crisis the country is going through. However, it is not by recalling octogenarians that the country will recover. It is urgent for the salvation of this country to call for new blood. The crisis that Algeria is going through is precisely due to three archetypes which determine the reading grids of the gerontocrats who rule this country: the cold war, the fight against colonialism and conspiracy.
