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.
Note: Humane, empathic, honest citizens of US you have my deepest sympathy however the mean predatory turds that direct, rule, finance or lobby your government are hellbent on death.

“…US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) chief General Joseph Votel said that US commando teams must prepare for new deployments against Boko Haram and the Islamic State. ”
[T]he greatest prize for AFRICOM and its goal to plant a PAX AMERICANA in Africa would be when it succeeds in the most strategic African country, NIGERIA. This is where the raging issue of BOKO HARAM and the widely reported prediction by the United States Intelligence Council on the disintegration of Nigeria by 2015 comes into perspective…(Atheling P Reginald Mavengira, “Humanitarian Intervention” in Nigeria: Is the Boko Haram Insurgency Another CIA Covert Operation? Wikileaks, African Renaissance News, May 08, 2014)
According to the report, a Nigerian soldier in Borno state confirmed that Boko Haram attacked Gamboru Ngala in their presence but their commander asked them not to repel the attack. The soldier told BBC Hausa Service that choppers hovered in the air while the attacks were ongoing. 300 people were killed, houses and a market burnt while soldiers watched and were ordered not to render assistance to those being attacked. The soldier said that the Boko Haram insurgency will end when superior officers in the army cease to fuel it.

Nikolai Starikov, writer on geo-politics and international finance, explains the mechanisms of the ruble’s 2014 fall, the passivity or complicity of the financial authorities, and the end result this is leading to.
Attacks against Russia are happening on multiple fronts, including:
– Sanctions suspending credit lines from abroad;
– Speculators easily manipulating the RUB exchange rates;
– False flag atrocities;
– The oil price determined by OPEC;
– Preparation of a “Patriotic Maidan”.
Insightful analysis of the 3-Pronged attack on Russia. How many African nation states can fend of any attack (economic, biological or physical armaments) by US/EU?
In the corrupt US/EU ruling cabal we trust to manage global affairs for our benefit.
How brutally exposed are their false moral claims. Oh, the spectacle – the tinpot bully running naked down the street.
CIA torture, NSA spying, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Congo, Liberia, Libya, too big too fail/jail, banking fraud (libor, mortage, commodities, money, forex), pharma vaccine indemnity, biowarfare, GMO etc…It will require multiple blogs just to document the crimes of the western private/state executive officers.
Brzezinski artfully neglects mention of what is intended to supersede American unipolarity: planetary tyranny, a system of total population control and resource extraction. Moreover, all of this is being constructed in the name of “liberty” and “equality,” abstractions serving as mere rhetorical cover for a demonic will to power
With the West conquered, now all of humanity is set for standardization through postmodern colonialism, covert-action NGOs, carrier battle groups, and killer drones. Any sovereign state resisting the march of progress must be destroyed

“…the US has a policy that no matter what Africa leaders are doing to their population as long as they provide us federal access to Congo’s resources or Africa’s resources, we will support them”

In December 2001 the United Nations asked a panel of experts to investigate the illegal exploitation of natural resources and other forms of wealth of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The panel’s report was issued in October 2002. In it they said George Forrest had long-standing ties to the establishment in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and described him as a member of the elite network of Congolese interests. In 2003, the United Nations published a new report on the illegal exploitation of natural resources. The panel’s 2003 report officially dismissed his previous critics regarding George Forrest.
…Coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri…in a statement on Tuesday, had said that agents of ISIS were in the country to recruit Nigerian youths to fight for the terrorist group.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, David Okoji, Omeri said three South Africans were among fighters recruited by ISIS under the guise of humanitarian support groups for refugees in Nigeria.
Speaking in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja on Friday, Omeri confirmed that three South Africans had been hired to recruit young fighters for ISIS from Africa.
Nigeria and US in fresh face-off
A few pointers to note for Nigeria in 2015.
