In an article by Cliff Kincaid of Newswithviews, South Africa is not favourably viewed in the light of current world events, i.e. the war in Ukraine and a New World Order. It appears South Africa is doing a balancing act between two concerns while not knowing what is really transpiring in the darkness of world affairs. Perhaps the SA government is sitting on two fences and hoping that another round of monetary aid would flow into its coffers should it pursue its present stance.
Here’s the quote from the article concerning South Africa.

“Aid to Ukraine should continue and be increased. But why is Biden sending foreign aid to communist South Africa, a Russian ally? China-Russia-South Africa joint military drills, named Operation Mosi, are scheduled to take place from February 17 to 26. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was just welcomed by his South African counterpart in Pretoria, South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor, where they declared the advent of a new “global order.”
An AFP story quoted Pandor as thanking Lavrov for the “most wonderful meeting” after the talks, which will “strengthen the already good relations” between the two countries. She described Russia as a “valued partner.”
Yet, Biden had declared, when he hosted President Ramaphosa of South Africa, “The United States and South Africa and your government have the same value set.” He added, “South Africa is a vital voice on the global stage and a leader in the international order.”
Incredibly, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was just in South Africa, declaring the U.S. is seeking to deepen its “economic integration” with South Africa.
What America needs is a new version of the Reagan Doctrine, singling out communist governments for confrontation, even regime change. That means cutting off foreign aid to countries like South Africa. That means letting Israel take care of the Iranian nuclear bomb problem.”
