Morocco: "War and Insurgency in the Western Sahara", New Book On Saharawi-Moroccan Conflict

Pennsylvania — A new book about the Saharawi-Moroccan conflict under the title "War and Insurgency in the Western Sahara" has recently issued by the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College.

The 110-page book examines with study and in-depth historical analysis the most important periods in the conflict of Western Sahara between Polisario Front and the Kingdom of Morocco.

The book also deals with the period of fierce armed war fought by the Saharawi People's Liberation Army against Moroccan royal army, pointing, in particular, to the successive achievements attained by Saharawi army.

It emphasizes the strength of Saharawi army and the courage and field experience of its soldiers, as well as proficiency of its leaders in planning and tactics, focusing on the foreign intervention in general and the U.S. in particular to help Moroccan army, especially in the construction of the defensive walls early 1980s.

The U.S. book focused on the Intifada of Independence in the occupied territories of Western Sahara, confirming that "legitimacy" and "law" supports the right of Saharawi people to self-determination and independence, adding that the game of international interests and absence of democracy in Moroccan Kingdom are blocking them to the day from enjoying this right.

It, therefore, pointed out that the natural resources are one of the key factors behind Moroccan Kingdom's occupation of Western Sahara, stressing that the United States must play a key role in resolving the conflict, as quickly as possible.

It is noteworthy that the Strategic Studies Institute is part of the U.S. Army War College. It is an agency for studies of strategic level for issues related to national security and military strategy, with a focus on the geostrategic analysis.
