WordPress Veteran & Africom on the Brain

in politics •  last month

Hey everyone,

I was just looking through the "archives" over at my WordPress and was a bit surprised to see that I've been maintaining that blog for a little over 4 years now.:

Pretty nice feeling to have. It can be difficult to keep up with the news of the world, especially United States foreign policy.

I'm planning on doing a write-up on the United States in Africa again soon, maybe this week. Nick Turse has released a new article about the region, and I'm still quite shocked at how little coverage the expansion gets. Then again, how much media coverage did the United States military build up, infrastructure construction and active missions in the Middle East get prior to September 11th, 2001?

I remember a little while back Firestone was caught buying politicians and operating a shadow government in Africa so they could farm rubber without regulations or human rights. Are you looking at things like that or the places our troops are hidden all around there?

Either way I'd like to hear more about what is going 100%

I'm focused on the "official" stuff. The US is building up there just like the Middle East. NIck Turse has been destroying this issue for years. He gets all this evidence and troop numbers from declassified Pentagon documents.
