AFRICOM in Africa

http://rinf.com/alt-news/newswire/north-africa-hit-drone-programme/

The US military’s Africa Command (AFRICOM) is preparing to develop at least one new US drone and Special Forces base in North Africa

“The presence of ISIL and other extremist groups in Libya, particularly in eastern Libya, is of significant concern to the US,” General Carter Ham, former commander of AFRICOM and now a consultant with an elite Washington strategy firm, told the Journal.

Official recognition of Tunisia as a “major non-NATO ally” on Friday suggests that Tunis is a leading candidate for the expanded US military presence. The US State Department upgraded Tunisia to special ally status on Friday.
Any new US bases in North Africa will come in addition to a network of US military facilities, garrisons, and covert small-unit deployments that already spans the entire continent. AFRICOM has maintained some level of military presence in literally every single African country for years. US forces under AFRICOM were engaged in live military operations in at least 13 countries as of 2014.

Just as with the ongoing imperialist-orchestrated military interventions throughout West Africa, Central Africa and the Horn of Africa, the threat of Islamist extremism is serving as the all-purpose pretext for efforts by the former colonial overlords to militarize the entire Mediterranean and reassert their own interests in both Northern and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Having ransacked Libya, flooding the surrounding countries with weapons and militants that have profoundly destabilized the political structure of the entire region, US imperialism is preparing new catastrophes further afield.

In remarks Monday, US State Department spokesman Admiral Kirby John pledged continuing US involvement in the civil war in Nigeria(?), issuing harsh denunciations of the Islamist group Boko Haram, the favored bogeyman and central pretext for an expanding US-led military buildup in West Africa. In the wake of the ascension of a US-backed former dictator to the Nigerian presidency and the deployment of thousands of US and US-backed troops on Nigeria’s northeastern border, the meaning of such comments is clear.

Note: Without Ebola or the rent-a-jihadi-terrorist, the western (anglo/khazar) ruling-turds would have no pretext (deceit/cover) to deploy its jackals.

Defense Sec Carter visits AFRICOM

“We’re in a counterterrorism pinch and that’s no joke,” the secretary emphasized. “The evil of [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant], narcotics, corruption, organized crime … are rife in Africa and ultimately they will come home to roost if we don’t combat it there, and that’s what you’re doing so ably.”

The secretary spoke of the “American secret sauce,” defining it as, “Good people around the world like working with us.”

Note: narcotics, Corruption, Organized crime are rife in Africa? I think we can say guns, narcotics, corruption, Organized judicial and political crimes are rife in the U.S.A. Oh not so?
What are TPP, TTIP and TISA? Political and judicial fraud!
What about Monsanto and Maui (Hawaii) or California and mandatory vaccines for corrupt pharma?
Narcotics? C.I.A also known as Cocaine Importing Agency or the increased OPIUM in Afghanistan since the US invaded it.

Tekmira Stops Testing of Ebola Drug in Sierra Leone

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ebola-virus-outbreak/ebola-drug-doesnt-help-company-stops-testing-n378756

A Canadian company testing an experimental drug against Ebola has closed down the trial and concluded they cannot say whether the drug helped anyone.

Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation had been testing the drug in patients in Sierra Leone, but said it was clear the drug wasn’t showing any benefit to patients. The testing was scheduled to end anyway.

“The Phase II clinical trial of TKM-Ebola-Guinea has reached a predefined statistical endpoint and enrollment has been closed,” the company said in a statement.

No one could say which treatment worked because none of the therapies were given in a controlled clinical trial — one set up to show whether patients did better with the treatment than without it

The drug uses bits of genetic material called small interfering RNAs, or siRNAs for short.

Viruses kill cells by invading them and taking over their machinery to force them to pump out copy after copy of virus. This drug doesn’t prevent infection, but stops the virus from replicating by attaching to its RNA.

Geisbert says it should be a successful approach. He’s afraid other companies testing drugs against Ebola will be scared away from moving forward

Note: Rima, after posting that cultural analysis, I had “cowpox” myself with a booster shot of your factual critique of vaccines.
