The war you’ve never heard of | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The war you’ve never heard of

Today, according to U.S. military documents obtained by VICE News, special operators are carrying out nearly 100 missions at any given time — in Africa alone. It’s the latest sign of the military’s quiet but ever-expanding presence on the continent, one that represents the most dramatic growth in the deployment of America’s elite troops to any region of the globe.

In 2006, just 1 percent of all U.S. commandos deployed overseas were in Africa. In 2010, it was 3 percent. By 2016, that number had jumped to more than 17 percent. In fact, according to data supplied by U.S. Special Operations Command, there are now more special operations personnel devoted to Africa than anywhere except the Middle East — 1,700 people spread out across 20 countries dedicated to assisting the U.S. military’s African partners in their fight against terrorism and extremism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not at all about "...assisting the U.S. military’s African partners in their fight against terrorism and extremism."

It is the perennial American Deep State's fight for resources, to which the US government, and the corporations it supports, have utterly no moral right; to insure that the governments of Africa are Western-centric, even if they need to regime change those government; and it is about insuring that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

Oh, and it is to keep Russia and China away from those resources as well.
