  1. Interesting … “Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya” …

    All key partners in the US Africom strategic command.

    • For me, the above link didn’t work. Try this one, and of course it’s just another apologia from the people who are bringing you Empire, in Nine Areas of “Responsibility” (should be “Authority”) where the US Military will be the “force” that “protects US regional interests” and “sets the conditions for good governance” and all that crap: link to armed-services.senate.gov

      But for anyone curious about the mind-set and reach and grasp of the people who claim that authority over all parts of the Global Interoperable Network-Centric Battlespace that is by Executive Decree the place formerly known as Planet Earth, it’s an interesting read…

  2. Thanks, it worked in my browser originally but evidently not as a re-direct. I looked for but did not find yours in a simple search.

    What I took from the piece was the inherent “marriage” of the ‘economic’ and ‘military’ in Africom’s mission statement and scope. Of course, we see how this has worked historically in other regions of Africa and the world, and the ‘double standards’ it entails.
