Pentagon Expands Permanent Africa Presence With $110M Drone Base In Niger

Signaling what will be a major uptick in US drone activity across western Africa, US African Command (AFRICOM) announced Friday its airbase Agadez, Niger has gone operational, not just flying surveillance drones as was originally expected, but also armed combat drones.

Flights from the base, called Air Base 201, began last week and the patrols are to aid US-Nigerien military patrols in rooting out regional ISIS militants and other Islamist factions which have been threatening the area. Specifically US officials say the armed drone program is badly needed due to prior ISIS ambushes on US-Nigerien troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, you mean the US backed, trained, and funded ISIS the US has been throwing about to create chaos from which only the US military can possibly save the population of that country affected by that same chaos?!?

Just doing a reality check here.

It's all about the resources, folks.

First, go in and either regime that country's government which is not to your liking, or scare them into giving permission for the US to establish military bases in that country, to "save them from the evil ISIS" (as has been done here); expropriate the resources to which the US has absolutely no moral right, then insure that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

Anyone who cannot see the pattern here, is just not flipping looking!!
