    Ron Paul Reminds Americans the US Military is Occupying 53 of 54 African Nations

    Ron Paul noted that not only is the United States military in Niger, but U.S. troops are stationed in 53 out of the 54 nations in Africa.

    By Rachel Blevins - October 25, 2017



    While many Americans are aware that the United States is at war in countries such as Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan because of the media attention given to those conflicts, the news that four U.S. soldiers were killed in Niger came as a surprise that left some asking the question, “Since when is the U.S. at War with Africa?”

    Sgt. La David Johnson, Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright were killed on Oct. 4, after their team was reportedly ambushed by “ISIS-affiliated militants traveling by vehicle, carrying small arms and rocket-propelled grenade launchers.”

    Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul weighed in on the situation, and noted that this appears to be one more war the U.S. is fighting without approval from Congress—and it is a war that includes the presence of U.S. troops in 53 out of the 54 nations in Africa.

    “Now, when the Pentagon and the administration have had some pressure on them, you know, instead of having 100 people there, they’re admitting we have 6,000 people in Africa, and they even put a number on it. They say ‘we have some military in 53 of the 54 countries in Africa.’ That’s pretty expansive,” Paul said.



    While South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a devoted war hawk and member of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, initially admitted that he was not aware the U.S. had troops in Niger before news of the attack surfaced, he immediately pledged his support to yet another military conflict created by the United States.

    Yea, I doubt they would be anywhere near Sudan but I am sure they are in South Sudan marker or not. After all, they were the ones who helped create that country, it would be a shame of they weren't there.

    See, I had no idea. This should stop right away. Why isn't Rand making a little more noise on this?

    Coming at this from an evangelical perspective, colonists like to make boundaries along natural borders like mountains and rivers. That doesn't always work when most of the social organization is linguistic. People groups share a common language and culture. Nations should be formed by people groups, not by wherever western thinking says they should be.

    Dancing with dead bodies may be spreading the plague in Madagascar

    Now officials have identified a centuries-old tradition in Madagascar that could heighten the risk of the outbreak spreading: dancing with the dead.
    The local name for the practice is famadihana, but it is also known as “the turning of the bones” or “body turning.” It involves families exhuming the bones of their deceased relatives, rewrapping them with fresh cloth, and dancing with the wrapped corpses before returning the remains to their graves.

    Nope. The US has a drone base there.
    The United States drone base in Seychelles is a military base operated by the United States and located at the Seychelles International Airport in Mahé island, Seychelles. The aerial fleet is made up of General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper drones. The drones have been hosted in Seychelles since 2009 and they are located in a hangar about a quarter of a mile from the main terminal of the airport.

    The United States Air Force has a team on the ground in Seychelles (around 100 military personnel) who launch and land the drones, which are operated from the Creech Air Force Base in Nevada and Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.
    I was stopping back on this thread to see if we'd figured out which country was the one being ignored.

    BTW: It looks like the map with the push pins and markers comes from Mother Jones in a SEP2013 Article. What's more the push pins represent 2012 and 2013 training operations where the local troops were sent to US-provided training in a third country - so they don't necessary imply current US military feet on the ground. We're looking at data that's four or five years old. The article goes into details of the map in it's narrative. I don't see Madagascar mentioned in the article at all.

    They say ‘we have some military in 53 of the 54 countries in Africa.’
    Why is it not 54 out of 54?

    I am writing my congressman.

    I was hoping Zippee would weigh in with an updated map; but thanks for the comedic relief, I needed it
