The Fascists' Subtle Move Into Another Continent

US Quietly Assumes Military Posture in Africa

"NAIROBI, Kenya -- While putting few U.S. troops at risk, the United States is playing a growing role in Africa's military battles, using special forces advisers, drones and tens of millions of dollars in military aid to combat a growing and multifaceted security threat.

Once again, the focus is Somalia, the lawless nation that was the site of America's last large-scale military intervention in Africa in the early 1990s. By the time U.S. forces departed, 44 Soldiers, Airmen and Marines had been killed and dozens more wounded.

This time the United States is playing a less visible role, providing intelligence and training to fight militants across the continent, from Mauritania in the west along the Atlantic coast, to Somalia in the east along the Indian Ocean."

Of course, "militants" and "insurgents" and all the rest of corporate/MSM milspeak actually means that the people who live there don't approve of foreign power moving in to steal the resources under their feet.

'They wanna have a war to keep their factories
They wanna have a war to keep us on our knees.'
