Slain US Troops Were Told Niger Area Was ‘Low-Risk’

US “training” operations in Niger took a turn for the deadly on Wednesday, when three US soldiers were killed, and two others wounded in an ambush by unspecified “enemies” near the Niger-Mali border. These are the first US combat deaths recorded in Niger, with another US soldier killed in a vehicle accident earlier this year.

The incident is raising a lot of questions, however, because US commanders had been telling everyone involved that the patrols were “low risk” and that there was little hostile activity in the area.

Now officials are trying to figure out what happened, and whether patrols became so predictable that the troops in the country made themselves a target in the area. For now, even who carried out the attack is subject to speculation.

The most likely candidate is al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), which is known to operate in the border area. Boko Haram, however, is also active in the region, and it would not be unheard of for them to carry out such an ambush.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These troops were lied to, about the risk factor of their deployment here: their COs should have been much more forthright with them, about the real dangers they were facing.

National armies are the "hired guns" of major corporations, colluding with the governments which are their willing "errand boys", in order to expropriate foreign natural resources, to which they have no moral right, and make sure that those resources are only sold in specific currencies.

This is precisely what the US government is looking to do in Niger.

When Karl Marx made the observation that "All wars are economic in nature", the guy was absolutely correct.
