I doubt that even those who are well informed here at ATS know the extent the USA is in African countries on the pretext of routing ISIS and Al Qaeda .
The concept of Identity Federalism is key to the US’ foreign policy designs in the post-1991 world order, becoming even more important in the era of the New Cold War. The US is currently engaged in waging and planning a variety of Hybrid Wars across the world...
“The grand objective behind every Hybrid War is to disrupt multipolar transnational connective infrastructure projects through externally provoked identity conflicts (ethnic, religious, regional, political, etc.) within a targeted transit state.”
OK I am all for cutting the head off of ISIS and their many spawn yet my question is why is it that the USA and some allies are the only ones to step up to the chopping block ?
a reason given in justification of a course of action that is not the real reason. "the rebels had the perfect pretext for making their move" synonyms: excuse, false excuse, ostensible reason, alleged reason

when you have to list EVERY definition from the dictionary to attempt to " cover it " - you have failed
what the OP and thier wingnut source are attempting to do is equate :
" american miiltary presence in an african country" to " nazi occupied europe [ 1938 > 1945 ] "
by the " loogic " of the OP and thier source :
" US military occupies russia "
i make this statement based on the fact that there are more US personel in russia in 2017 than several of the allededly " occupied african countries "
thats how insane the OP " logic " is
ETA - oh and why the hell do you assume i am american ????????????????
Senator Lindsey Graham told NBC News over the weekend that he had "no idea" that there were 1,000 US troops in Niger. But it didn't bother him at all. He promised that the US military -- which already has troops in 53 of the 54 countries in Africa -- will soon be far more involved in fighting on the continent. We don't want the next 9/11 to come from Niger, he warned. Should Congress at least show an interest in this new, expanded war?
