First Ukraine, now Somalia.
What's the mission? What is the U.S. supposed to achieve?
Black Hawk Down 2.0, brought to you by SecDef Raytheon. At least Somalis will get droned by more diverse operators! https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-wage-war?s=w
"President Biden has signed a non-public executive order" Can someone please take away this guy's pen? Or whoever's actually signing these things? What fresh hell awaits us with secret EOs?
Ahh, The War on Terror©. Started, in earnest, after the Twin Towers were bombed under very strange circumstances. Now that the Patriot Act has turned the US into a surveillance state, and helped the Uniparty erase the Bill of Rights, is it really necessary to kill all “terrorists” wherever they are found? Was it ever? But it is a very profitable endeavor for some. It’s also a wonderful example of the Coward Wars that we have been engaging in for a long long time. High tech remotely controlled weapons used against a tribal people, barely out of the Bronze Age.
To most of the world, the USA and its hooligan pals, must look like a joke; a bad joke! Also, Biden looks natural with the black mask on; being the liar and thief that he is!
I can't stand Trump. Would never vote for him again. But foreign non-involvement was the biggest difference and benefit we gained during his presidency. I appreciated that about him and miss it greatly now.
What a shitshow. At least it appears that more bombing will not further degrade the landscape.
This guy should clean up the city of Mobile, where he was born, first. Lots of crime there.
This is not all bad. Nothing has ever gone wrong in Somalia before, right?
Stupidity running rampant.. maybe focus on real issues like getting the US economy going.. housing shortages for the poor?? Forget Somalia
Yep, it’s party time for the military industrial complex. WHOO-HOO.
Mission is to keep losing wars (didn't we get kicked out in Somalia in 3/94?) and profits for corporations making war equipment like the V Nam war. Failure in Iraq and Afghanistan, now more failures. No war won in 77 years.
Until your attitude improves, the bombings will continue.
"the failed state of Somalia" "theocratic gangs" "linked to Al Qaeda"
Ah yes, it's the Islamists that ruined the country! Absolutely not the U.S.
Reality check: The warlords Washington armed terrorized the country. On the roads to Mogadishu they forced people to give them money and raped women. They made life unbearable, thanks to the usual mindless voting sheep in the U.S. So businessmen in Mogadishu paid the Islamic courts, who gathered volunteers to fight back. They freed the capital and much of the country.
But Washington couldn't allow that, as Somalia also allowed some of the resistance fighters in Iraq to stay in the country. No one must oppose Washington's occupations. So they paid Xtian Ethiopia to invade and destroy Somalia. With the destruction of Somalia, South Korean and Japanese fishing fleets moved in to sweep the coastline, emptying it of fish since no one could resist. The fishermen lost their livelihoods and the people were denied food. So the fishermen became pirates, striking back. And everyone acted shocked, as usual forgetting what had happened before.
Al-Shabaab was formed to oppose the occupation, which is still ongoing through proxy rulers. "Linked to al-Qaeda!" They only declared loyalty to al-Qaeda in 2012, and it's symbolic. They are fighting their fight, to free Somalia. And when Washington sends its mercenaries, I wish al-Shabaab well. Make the globalists regret coming.
Speaking of "linked to al-Qaeda", that's the U.S. Which armed al-Q and ISIS in Syria via tiny "democratic resistance groups" on the Syrian border, which sold or handed over the weapons to the Islamists, then dissolved and joined them. The U.S. has also financed and armed the Marxists Kurds, who allowed ISIS to pass through their territory from Iraq to Syria, and who have allowed them passage several times since then. The Kurds who include ISIS fighters, and who ISIS eagerly handed over the oil fields to when the Syrian military was approaching to retake them. ISIS could only take those oil fields because of the U.S. bombing them to make the defenders take cover, after which ISIS oddly enough was ready to move in right after. To say it clearly, Washington was working with ISIS.
And of course, the Washington-funded Saudi Arabia and Qatar were the ones who started ISIS in the first place, as everyone knew, and as the Qatari prime minister revealed when Saudi Arabia prepared to attack them because they dared have diplomatic contact with Iran. al-Qaeda was also directly supported by Israel, which functioned as their air force in southern Syria, bombing Syria's defenders on their behalf. Israel gave al-Qaeda shelter and medial aid on the Israeli side of the border when needed, before letting them re-enter Syria from some other spot on the border. When Israel's proxy terrorists couldn't hold out, Israel arranged for them to be transported by helicopter to Jordan.
This "al-Qaeda" was the worst kind, simply Iraqi Sunnis angry that they lost Iraq to the Shia majority - so they only set out to kill Shias and Christians in Syria, with no intent to fight back against U.S. control in the Middle East. This is what Americans support. So, let's drop the "linked to al-Qaeda!" as the scare announcement of choice. Ever since the U.S. destroyed Syria's economy with Bush and Obama sanctions, that label has fit the U.S. more than any other country.
Peace is breaking out all over. The Democrats are the Party of Peace. Book Brandon a flight to Norway to get his prize.
If your son or daughter are thinking of joining the armed forces tell them to wait a few years, biden treats soldiers like furniture.
