Faced with unfounded subjectivities advocating armed insurgency against the authority of the State, between alleged legitimacies opposing the control of spaces and resources, the Defence and Security Forces (DSF) have as one and only alternative the republican legality.
This assertion can both, alternately or concurrently, serve as a summary and a framework for the action of our personnel deployed in areas subject to security vulnerabilities, such as those found on national territory. It should be noted that as they are built in an illusory way on a more or less heterogeneous fabric of beliefs, certainties, practices and initiatives, the current liberalised conflicts are the result of dilemmas, concerns, and questions. They also carry a lot of expectations and raise many hopes.
In itself, this expectant attitude of man, which stems from his deep nature, can only be fruitful, except when it is polluted by interference working to demoralize the individual, to exacerbate his impatience and to the generation in him, a feeling of dissatisfaction. It is then that all the references of humanity, fraternity and solidarity falls. Diversity becomes adversity, egoism replaces self-sacrifice, warm neighbourhoods turn into hermetic hermitages, and the desire for monopolization outweighs the sense of sharing. The violence born out of these imagined hatreds painfully affects our families, our communities, and our entire nation.
However, it is possible to live differently on Cameroonian soil, without argument, without violence. To live in harmony, in peace and in complete security with our neighbour, each of us desires it, urges and demands it. The cardinality of these principles of life and survival is such that the government is given a mandate to ensure their sustainability and if necessary, their restoration.
Our Defence and Security Forces make this mission an exciting task and a noble duty. As ambassadors of peace, as agents of national security, the soldiers of the Republic ensure the well-being of all, tempering moods, restraining hostility, discouraging the use of violence, provoking fraternization.
