Massive Shadow War In Africa

Here is a timely update from Nick Turse, one of our few remaining true investigative journalists:

Six years ago, a deputy commanding general for U.S. Army Special Operations Command gave a conservative estimate of 116 missions being carried out at any one time by Navy SEALs, Army Green Berets, and other special operations forces across the globe.

Today, according to U.S. military documents obtained by VICE News, special operators are carrying out nearly 100 missions at any given time - in Africa alone. It’s the latest sign of the military’s quiet but ever-expanding presence on the continent, one that represents the most dramatic growth in the deployment of America’s elite troops to any region of the globe.

This is wholly consistent with the MSM freakout over Russia-gate: the US has imaginary enemies everywhere, so we're at war with everyone all the time. However, none of these are declared wars ... and most of them are not affordable.

Trump is not the only problem; so is "our" dysfunctional Congress.

This will not end well, but I strongly hope it will at least end some day.
