For the few of you who may be following this, this is a massive development in a region that I have been watching closely for quite sometime.
It all started with a law that breezed through congress and moved swiftly on to Obama's desk back in 2010 (Lord's Resistance Army Disarmament and
Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009) that authorized the deployment of US Spec. Ops forces to kill or capture the Leader of the LRA, Joseph Kony.
Our troops were recently deployed back in October 2011. Its been tight lips ever since.
Here is a thread on that topic I posted in November.
Back in January I posted a thread regarding the escalating threats in Sudan and new threats of Jihad
Later that month the Al Shabaab terror network in Somalia announced a new pledge of Allegiance with Al Qaeda.
Our Spec ops troops are moving swiftly to rescue American hostages from Somali Pirates. We are getting all US assets out of dodge.
Now the latest update states that our spec ops troops are now in 4 Countries on the hunt for the LA
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -- A top military official says that U.S. troops are now deployed in four central African countries as part of U.S. efforts
against a brutal rebel group called the Lord's Resistance Army.
Rear Adm. Brian L. Losey, the top U.S. special operations commander for Africa, said Wednesday that U.S. troops are now stationed in bases in Uganda,
Congo, South Sudan and the Central African Republic.
The U.S. announced in October it was sending about 100 U.S. troops - mostly special operations forces - to central Africa to advise in the fight
against the LRA and its leader Joseph Kony.
Losey said officials are already seeing a decrease in the lethality of LRA actions, which he thinks is part of the pressure the U.S. and partner
countries are applying.
Another Silent War in an effort to secure a region that is waiting to have its oil and mineral resources harvested. The investors are in play and
ready for a safe area to work. The R2P group and the International Crisis Group are succeeding in their efforts to spread their grip and to improve
the quality of life for the long ravaged populations there. R2P Doctrine and the Obama Doctrine are officially in full Swing.
Watch Syria Fall into the hands of the radical Muslim Brotherhood soon just like Egypt and Libya. It would appear that we are about to surrender our
full interest in that area with a new focus on untapped resources. We are on the run to beat the Chinese in a battle for resources. Smells like
Vietnam all over again.
