AFRICOM CONTINUES AGGRESSION AND MANEUVERES ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

On the same day, September 30, that two U.S. Muslim citizens were assassinated in Yemen by the Pentagon-Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) drones, it was announced that 21 Somalians were also killed in similar military actions that resulted in one of these unmanned weapons being downed over Kismayo in this Horn of Africa nation. The drone attacks in southern Somalia resulted in many people being forced to flee the Qooqani and Taabto districts.

Somalia is among at least six countries where the U.S. has carried out drone attacks that have resulted in the deaths of many civilians. These aerial strikes also take place on a regular basis in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq and Yemen (Press TV, September 30).

Although the White House and the Pentagon claims that the strikes target those individuals and organizations labeled as “terrorists” by the State Department, in most instances the people most adversely affected by the attacks are people who are not armed and constitute no direct threat to the U.S. government and its allies.

On October 4, the Al-Shabaab Islamic resistance movement in Somalia claimed responsibility for the bombing of the Ministry of Education that resulted in the deaths of over 50 people. The U.S. has targeted Al-Shabaab as a threat to Washington’s interests in Somalia and throughout the region.

AFRICOM WILL DESTROY AFRICA

The USA Africa Command which they call “Africom” is a military structure of the Defence Department of America. It is the American political deception for establishing military bases on the African Continent. It conceals its real intentions in Africa. It was formed in February 2OO7 during George Bush’s term of office. This was two months after America had bombed a small African country, Somalia, destabilizing it to the ashes it is today.

At that time the American President said Africom “will enhance our efforts to bring peace and security to the people of Africa and promote our common goals of development, health, education, democracy and economic growth of Africa.” Where in Africa has the USA done this? With the same breath Bush revealed, “Africom will co-ordinate all U.S. security interests throughout Africa.”
