US military in Africa for exploitation, Middle East control: Analyst

The United States military is expanding its presence in Africa in order to exploit the continent’s oil and resources, while keeping an eye on the Middle East region, an American analyst says.

James Petras, a political analyst in New York, made the remarks while discussing a 2018 briefing by the US African Command (AFRICOM) that shows Washington runs 34 bases across Africa, contrary to the Pentagon’s insistence that it maintains a modest presence across the continent.

The 2018 briefing by AFRICOM’s science adviser Peter E. Teil, titled Strategic Posture, was exposed by The Intercept in early December.

In the briefing, Teil presented a map of the US military’s constellation of the bases, which names 14 forward operating sites (FOSes) and cooperative security locations (CSLs) besides providing country-specific locales for 20 contingency locations.

“The second area is military-strategic interests and using military bases as a way to maintain political dominance,” Petras told Press TV on Wednesday.


PressTV-Vast network of US military bases in Africa exposed
A US military briefing shows Washington is running 34 bases across Africa, contrary to the Pentagon’s claims of a modest military presence.
The military forces that Washington has deployed to various African countries would prevent popular uprisings in areas that the US is seeking its own interests, the analyst added.

The presence also helps Washington to keep supporting Saudi Arabia and Israel in the Middle East, Petras argued, an advantage that the US might end up using against Iran as well.

“So there is a connection here between us military bases in Africa with the US military bases in the Middle East targeting countries which refuse to comply or submit to the US, including Iran, Iraq and Syria,” he said.

“The facts of the matter are, that contrary to Washington’s propaganda, Africa has become part of the US attempt to establish world hegemony and beyond regional influence as a springboard towards the Middle east and beyond,” he concluded.

Agadez : cérémonie de réception d'un puits muni de pompe solaire à tassakintalamt

Ce puits moderne équipé d'une pompe solaire fait suite à une demande formulée par la population de tassakintalamt, village situé à quelques kilomètres de la ville d'Agadez à l'endroit de la base aérienne 201. Sa réalisation a coûté 20.000$ US et vise à étancher " la soif de nos populations et même de notre bétail " a reconnu M. Bazo, chef du village de Tassakintalamt.
La réception a eu lieu hier matin en présence des autorités régionales qui n'ont pas manqué de saluer cet acte combien important pour les populations de Tassakintalamt.
Pour montrer leur volonté d'aider la région, les pensionnaires de la base aérienne 201 organisent souvent des expositions-ventes de produits locaux au cours desquelles les artisans font des grands bénéfices.
Rappelons enfin que la base aérienne 201 a dans un récent passé apporté plusieurs appuis aux jeunes et aux femmes de la commune d'Agadez. Sans oublier des appuis en tables bancs et autres équipements aux écoles d'Agadez.

A series of mixed messages from the famous John Bolton, but clearly aligned with "America first" strategy.
That will only deter african nations from cooperation with US, which is good from my point of view.
US Africa strategy hinges on local forces stepping up as Pentagon ramps down: Bolton
By: Joe Gould   2 days ago

WASHINGTON — As the Trump administration pulls back America’s military presence in Africa, it’s calling for more African regional security organizations to step up, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton said Thursday.

In a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, Bolton unveiled the administration’s strategy to counter the rapidly expanding financial and political influence of China and Russia across Africa and work through allies to curb radical Islamic terrorism.

Overall, Bolton also sought to contrast America’s straight-forward approach — to “help African nations take control of their economic destinies and their own security needs” — with China’s “predatory” investments in local infrastructure projects.

“China uses bribes, opaque agreements, and the strategic use of debt to hold states in Africa captive to Beijing’s wishes and demands,” Bolton said. “Its investment ventures are riddled with corruption, and do not meet the same environmental or ethical standards as U.S. development projects.”

On the military front, China opened its first overseas military base last year in the Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti, the site of the only permanent U.S. military base on the continent. Bolton warned of a possible shift of the strategic region, along the lucrative and busy Red Sea shipping lane, to China.

But the plans to develop U.S. economic ties and protect the independence of African countries comes as the U.S. military will cut 10 percent of its 7,200 forces deployed in Africa. America hopes to foster African self-reliance, Bolton said.

“What we’d like to do is empower the African countries to do more security, to do it more of their own security, to do it in coordination with one another — they’re the ones who know the neighborhood — rather than have the deployment of American forces who are comparatively very well paid and well equipped,” Bolton said.

Bolton also emphasized the potential of the G5 Sahel Joint Force, a band of 5,000 troops comprised of Mauritania, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, and Mali — formed to counter militants linked to al-Qaeda and Islamic State in the Sahel.

The U.S. almost doubled its pledge of financial support for the force that began deploying last year to fight a surge in Islamist militant attacks, Bloomberg reported last month. Assistance was set to jump to $111 million, from an initial pledge of $60 million made in October 2017.

But the G5 Joint Force, according to the United Nations, is suffering from “equipment shortfalls, capability gaps, insufficient infrastructure and a lack of secured operational bases [that] continue to delay its full operationalization.”

U.S. special operations forces in Central and West Africa have been focused on training up African host-nation forces to combat growing insurgencies from Islamist militants. But the military is ramping down on the continent, following a national report that the U.S. military lacks the global resources to meet China or Russia in a potential future conflict.

“Our goal is for the nations of the region to take ownership over peace and security in their own neighborhood,” Bolton said.

“Under our new strategy, we will also take several additional steps to help our African friends fight terrorism and strengthen the rule of law,” Bolton said. “We will assist key African governments in building the capacity of partner forces and security institutions to provide effective and sustainable security and law enforcement services to their citizens.”

That said, Bolton expressed support for the idea of moving U.S. Africa Command headquarters to Africa from Germany, where it’s been since its founding in 2007. “I think the Pentagon has been clear that it ought to be in the theater it’s responsible for,” he said.

Bolton said the U.S. wants to see more regional cooperative security organizations like the G5 Sahel Joint Force emerge around the world.

As the force seeking to build regional capability to combat terrorism, transnational organized crime, and human trafficking in the Sahel, “G5 countries must remain in the driver’s seat—this initiative cannot be outsourced to the U.N. for funding and other support.”

Bolton, who has long denounced the United Nations, said the U.S. will a reevaluate its support for U.N. peacekeeping missions — only supporting those it deems “effective and efficient.” He blasted the peace-keeping operation in the Western Sahara for lasting 27 years.

“All too often at the United Nations, establishing the peace-keeping force and deploying it is the end of creative thinking,” he said. “There needs to be a lot more focus on resolving the conflict. Success is not simply continuing the mission ad infinitum."

"Civilisation" implique en quelque sort dans un contexte colonial, une vue hiérarchique dénigrent l’indigène sauvage et la destruction de son mode de vie/culture.
Tout à fait contraire aux déclarations du droit d’homme de 48, mais malgré ça Le-Pen et les pieds noir veulent toujours glorifier l’épochè coloniale.
Allah yehdehoum...

US building new hangars at Djibouti UAV base
Jeremy Binnie, London - Jane's Defence Weekly
18 December 2018

The US has awarded a contract to build new hangars at Chabelley Airfield in Djibouti, according to a notice published on the US Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website on 13 December.

The contract covers the construction of four semi-permanent aircraft maintenance hangars to replace temporary large-area maintenance shelters (LAMSs) at Chabelley, from where US Air Force Reaper and Predator unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have flown since 2013.

The partially redacted notice was released to justify the non-competitive contract award on the basis that there was only one company that could provide the required services.

The contract was awarded to the Italian company Consorzio Stabile GMG SCARL in April because the company is already conducting work at Chabelley.
