US Military Presence in Africa: All Over Continent and Still Expanding

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Arkady Savitsky

On August 2, Maj. Gen. Roger L. Cloutier took command of US Army Africa, promising to "hit the ground running."

The US is not waging any wars in Africa but it has a significant presence on the continent. Navy SEALs, Green Berets, and other special ops are currently conducting nearly 100 missions across 20 African countries at any given time, waging secret, limited-scale operations. According to the magazine Vice, US troops are now conducting 3,500 exercises and military engagements throughout Africa per year, an average of 10 per day — an astounding 1,900% increase since the command rolled out 10 years ago. Many activities described as "advise and assist" are actually indistinguishable from combat by any basic definition.
