U.S. Marines Dispatched to Five African Countries

AfricomVia Global Research:

The hidden agenda in Uganda, Central Africa and the Horn of Africa is the conquest of oil and strategic mineral resources. Going after Joseph Kony and protecting Ugandan children is a cynical smokescreen, a pretext for a “humanitarian intervention” in a region where US sponsored  “civil wars” (Sudan, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia) have in the course of the last 20 years resulted in more than eight million deaths:

“Through AFRICOM, the United States is seeking a foothold in the incredibly resource rich central African block in a further maneuver to aggregate regional hegemony over China. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is one of the world’s largest regions without an effectively functioning government. It contains vast deposits of diamonds, cobalt, copper, uranium, magnesium, and tin while producing over $1 billion in gold each year. It is entirely feasible that the US can considerably increase its presence in the DRC under the pretext of capturing Joseph Kony.” (Nile Bowie, Merchandising and Branding Support for US Military Intervention in Central Africa, Global research, March 14, 2012)

In a recent decision, the Pentagon confirms the sending in of Marine Special Forces to train Ugandan troops in the fight not only against Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) but also against Al Shabab in Somalia. Joseph Kony is being used as a pretext for outright military intervention in five African countries.

“So far, the task force has deployed small teams to five African nations, including some threatened by the terror group al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, according to a Marine news release” (Stars and Stripes, March 15, 2012).

        this has nothing to do with the coup in Mali either.

        • Jin The Ninja

          no of course NOT…

  • HHM

    Yes, WE know this. Now go convince the legions of retards also known as the american population.

      There are small pockets of people that know there is a smoke screen agenda. But for the rest, if mainstream media doesn’t talk about it, it doesn’t exist.

    what’s interesting to me about this
    is that China has poured a lot money into African infrastructure
    and has several million non-military Chinese working in Africa
    on the other hand
    the US has poured lots of “military aid” into Africa
    and has thousand of military & CIA personnel in Africa

    both countries have the same objective
    extract mineral resources

       First comes the infrastructure, then comes the need to protect that infrastructure. Africa is wallowing in chaos and it will take generations to resolve.

      Most of China’s UN Peacekeepers serve in Africa – there are several thousand.  Also, I would not presume that all the Chinese working in Africa are non-military given the PLA’s penchant for useing front companies.

     BuzzCoastin It reminds me of europian colonism in Africa from back in the day.  This came to mind, just saying…
    ”To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom—and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside. To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required—not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich”-JFK

    Assholes’ favorite mantra: “Well, young lady, war may seem bad, but it’s the only thing that stimulates the economy.”
    Yep, murdering scores of innocent people so we can steal their shit is the only thing that stimulates the economy, ever.
    But uh, everybody hold hands and sing Cumbaya about how we’re all the same cuz Neil Degrasse Tyson says we’re all made of the same cosmic dust, mmmmmmkay?
    “We’re all one”, just keep telling yourselves that til it doesn’t hurt anymore.

    How is this any different than the last hundred years?
    I guess the propaganda machine is just more effective now.

    Maybe we’ll just seize control and tell china if they want their investment back to forget the arm leg and soul we owe them.  Honestly our politicians and military are getting ballsier and less cunning everyday.

    • Nexusfast123

       You mean get more stupid by the day. The US has given up any pretense to civil diplomacy, trade, etc, and is now the world’s thug nation.

    The same game will be extended to Rwanda for sure

  • Urumurinews

    Our African presidents are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. The real African children will reveng very soon. Once we take out Kagame of Rwanda (that is very soon) we will hunt down M7 of Uganda and his other gangs that continue to perish African resources in the name of globalisation.
    Our brothers and sisters continue to live/loose their lives under a white man’s selfish greedy in utilising and blibing the so called Presidents. One day is one day and that day is now, not tomorrow. It has started in Mali, next will be Rwanda. If feel pity for Kagame, in failing Rwandans.

    We also have operations under the smoke screen of training in Nigeria to fight Piracy. Nigeria knows full well how to fight piracy. But like the camel getting it head in the tent…. soon you will have lumps too.
