Army teams going to Africa as terror threat grows

Looks like the 2nd Brigade known as the daggers will be deployed to around 35 African nations to train and equip governments for counter terrorism.

I think our government is just too stupid to realize the end results will not meet the initial objectives.

I am an old Spec Ops targeting guy, and trust me we currently have "people" all over the globe......we just never hear about it. During the Reagan years there was a "passing" of legislation that allowed the POTUS and the Pentagon to deploy certain units throughout the globe unreported to anyone. During this time frame there was reportedly a 10 fold increase in Spec Ops units. My job was part of that "build out". It was an education to say the least.

Weve been doing FID in Africa for years. No news there. But you're probably right. Im about tired of spending billions securing other countries.

Wow isn't that wonderful!! We need to do a little more world policing, put our troops in harms way and spend money we don't have.

nothing EVER wrong with reminding Americans that Obammy is a Heinz 57 ..... considers himself a man-of-the-world and The World Leader above and before an American/The President/US Commander in Chief .....

it's Christamas and won't even touch on the man's mental health .....

Dubya set up the Africa Central Command even as Shock and Awe was changing hearts and minds in Iraq. It is the gift of endless war by the MIC.

Being Heins-57 isn't a reason to dislike him. If that is why you don't like him, then you must hate me. Dislike him instead because of what he is doing to this country.

Kemosabe. We have been in and out of Africa since Regan.

What I said is true. What YOU said may be true but has nothing to do with what I said. Better luck next time.

Remember though, the tide of war is receding. Nevermind that burning embassy behind me.

Yes, but you could have talked about Regan without quoting me and giving me that impression. You should walk a mile in my shoes around here. I get quoted for use in any number of rants that have nothing to do with what I said. I don't care but I will make sure my point is made and understood for it's own sake.
