African Union official: US cannot give Jerusalem to Israel

Senior Human Rights Expert at the African Union’s Department of Political Affairs, Salah Hammad, said yesterday that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine and the United States cannot give it to Israel or any other party.

“The African Union’s position on the US decision is clear,” Hammad said in remarks to the Anadolu Agency on the sidelines of a solidarity campaign organised with the Palestinian cause in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

He pointed out that the US decision does not serve the Palestinian cause and does not lead to peace on the ground and stressed that the African Union’s position of solidarity with the Palestinian people is “clear and strong, and stems from the common African values ??that prevent a state from dominating another”.

Tunisians declare boycott of U.S. ships after Trump’s Jerusalem move

A Tunisian labor union on Sunday evening announced its decision to boycott U.S. ships docking at a seaport in the country’s southern region of Sfax following Trump’s recognition, on Wednesday, of Occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Spokesman of the Popular Conference for the Palestinians Abroad, Ziad al-Aloul, said on Facebook that the regional executive office of Tunisia’s Trade Unions decided to boycott all American ships docking at Sfax commercial harbor.

As part of the boycott move, workers at the seaport will not empty the shipments onboard boats tied up at Sfax seaport after they had set sail from the U.S.

'Worst Military Fiasco': US Media Reveals Details of Deadly Niger Operation

BuzzFeed News reported Friday, citing sources, that the deaths of eight soldiers, including four US servicemen, could have been avoided if the US military mission in October at the village of Tongo Tongo near the Malian border had been better planned.

BuzzFeed News described this deadly incident as the "the worst military fiasco under the Trump administration — in which four US soldiers were killed alongside four Nigerians by Islamist militants — was the result of reckless behavior by US Special Forces."

Senior US officials privy to the matter told the US media outlet that the "fiasco" came after US soldiers with alleged inadequate reconnaissance support and a lack of ammunition rushed into a tightly-secured hotbed of high-ranking Daesh militants. Buzzfeed News additionally revealed that a number of further "negligent" actions during the mission provided Daesh gunmen with a deadly dominance in accidental combat.

Jerusalem’s fate – Grant F Smith

Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem signals Washington now deems this to be Israel’s capital.

How this is in America’s interest is difficult to fathom.

The law of unintended consequences is surely in play.

Sudanese parliament calls to recognise State of Palestine with Jerusalem as capital

Sudanese parliament has called on the Arab and Islamic countries to recognise the State of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital amid calls by some lawmaker to expel the U.S. chargé d’affaires.

Statement of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission on the American Decision to Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of the State of Israel

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, notes with deep concern the decision of the United States Government, announced today, to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel. He regrets this decision, which will only increase tensions in the region and beyond and further complicate the search for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Chief Mandela slams Trump's Jerusalem declaration

Chief Mandla Mandela of Mvezo has lambasted United States President Donald Trump’s decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

In a statement opposing the controversial move, the Chief called the decision “an act of perverse incitement.”

“Jerusalem will always remain the capital of Palestine,” reads the statement.

“Trump's illegal act of declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel is an act of aggression against the Palestinians and all freedom loving people in the world.”

Eight countries have since called for an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the matter. Bolivia, Egypt, France, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Uruguay want a meeting by the end of the week.

Israeli firm Cyberbit illegally spied on behalf of Ethiopia's despots, then stored all their stolen data on an unencrypted, world-readable website

Researchers from the University of Toronto's amazing Citizen Lab (previously) have published a new report detailing the latest tactics from the autocratic government of Ethiopia, "the world's first turnkey surveillance state" whose human rights abuses have been entirely enabled with software and expertise purchased on the open market, largely from companies in western countries like Finfisher and Hacking Team. In Champing at the Cyberbit, Citizen Lab researchers Bill Marczak, Geoffrey Alexander, Sarah McKune, John Scott-Railton, and Ron Deibert disclose how malware developed and sold by the Israeli company Cyberbit (a subsidiary of Elbit) was used to attack members of the Ethiopian opposition, including political exiles in the USA and elsewhere who were forced to leave Ethiopia in fear of their lives.

New Rumblings in the Horn of Africa over Ethiopia’s Grand Renaissance Dam

Cairo recently reiterated its longstanding position that it’s against Addis Ababa’s construction of this megaproject on the Blue Nile river through which it receives most of its water, believing that the dam would allow Ethiopia to control downstream Egypt’s access to this resource and thus place it in a strategically vulnerable position. The Horn of African state hit back at the latest criticism by stating that it won’t be thwarted in carrying out this nationally important development project, and it also refuted the rumors which claimed that Qatar was partially funding the dam. Egypt’s latest infowar campaign against Ethiopia’s initiative is thought to be fueled in part by Sudan’s strategic realignment towards Addis Ababa in this dispute and more broadly in a larger Silk Road context, which has totally changed the dynamics and correspondingly placed Cairo on the defensive.

Niger Approves Armed U.S. Drone Flights, Expanding Pentagon’s Role in Africa

The government of Niger has given the Defense Department permission to fly armed drones out of the Nigerien capital, Niamey, Pentagon officials said Thursday, in a major expansion of the American military’s footprint in Africa.

Pentagon officials want to start the flights within days.

Western Media Finally Wake Up to Libyan Slave Trade, but Completely Whitewash all Western Responsibility for its Emergence

Western Media Finally Wake Up to Libyan Slave Trade, but Completely Whitewash all Western Responsibility for its Emergence

Twenty-first century slave markets. Human beings sold for a few hundred dollars. Massive protests throughout the world. The American and British media have awakened to the grim reality in Libya, where African refugees are for sale in open-air slave markets. Yet a crucial detail in this scandal has been downplayed or even ignored in many corporate media reports: the role of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in bringing slavery to the North African nation.

Amnesty seeks criminal inquiry into Shell over alleged complicity in murder and torture in Nigeria

A review of thousands of internal company documents and witness statements published on Tuesday points to the Anglo-Dutch organisation’s alleged involvement in the brutal campaign to silence protesters in the oil-producing Ogoniland region in the 1990s.

Amnesty is urging the UK, Nigeria and the Netherlands to consider a criminal case against Shell in light of evidence it claims amounts to “complicity in murder, rape and torture” – allegations Shell strongly denies.

Shell stopped operations in Ogoniland in early 1993 citing security concerns but “subsequently sought ways to re-enter the region and end the protests by the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, Mosop”, claims Amnesty.

On 30 April the same year troops guarding Shell’s contractors opened fire on protesters injuring 11 people, and a man was fatally shot at Nonwa village in a separate incident several days later.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, outsourced murder, rape, and torture are all in a day's work for any major corporation,in the process expropriating resources to which it has no moral right, and for which the local population gets no recompense whatsoever!" - Official Shell Souse.

Reapers in the Sahara: US Military to Deploy Armed UAVs to Niger

US Africa Command (AFRICOM) will be adding armed drones to their Nigerien arsenals to bolster their combat capabilities after the October ambush that left four US soldiers and five Nigerien soldiers dead.
Niger had already given the US permission to fly surveillance drone missions out of bases in their country, but now Niamey and the Pentagon have come to an agreement to allow AFRICOM to add MQ-9 Reaper drones equipped with a suite of missiles on bombs to their assets.

MEDIA ERASE NATO ROLE IN BRINGING SLAVE MARKETS TO LIBYA

he American and British media have awakened to the grim reality in Libya, where African refugees are for sale in open-air slave markets. Yet a crucial detail in this scandal has been downplayed or even ignored in many corporate media reports: the role of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in bringing slavery to the North African nation. In March 2011, NATO launched a war in Libya expressly aimed at toppling the government of longtime leader Muammar Qadhafi. The US and its allies flew some 26,000 sorties over Libya and launched hundreds of cruise missiles, destroying the government’s ability to resist rebel forces.

SAUDI ARABIA ARRESTS SECOND RICHEST MAN IN KINGDOM

Saudi authorities have arrested Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi a duel national with Saudi and Ethiopian citizen and is reportedly the second richest Saudi, after Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.

While bin Talal’s arrest has gained most media attention. Al-Amoudi’s arrest is especially important because it could potentially destabilize the economy of an entire country, according to Middle East Eye.

Al-Amoudi, who is also known as “the Sheikh”, has invested in almost every sector of Ethiopia’s economy, including hotels, agriculture and astrology.

According to a leaked diplomatic cable from 2008 “the Sheikh’s influence on the Ethiopian economy cannot be underestimated.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although, given his wealth and investments, this is probably a "Sheikh Shake-Down" for money, on the part of Prince Salman, it will have to be seen how this arrest,and the aftermath, plays out in both African and international markets first part of next week.

Flashback: Grace Mugabe Says: There Is Oil In Zimbabwe

Western mining experts hid exploration maps on Zimbabwe’s mineral resource base during the colonial era, but the country is slowly discovering its worth in terms of underground wealth, First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe has said.

It is believed that the whites undertook massive exploration works in Zimbabwe before independence, but never made public their findings. The move was deliberate to ensure that after independence, the new State would not know its value in terms of minerals. Addressing investors of African origin based in the United Kingdom at her Mazowe Children’s Home on Tuesday, Dr Mugabe said Zimbabwe was endowed with vast resources and God was already revealing some of the hidden wealth.

US Airstrike In Somalia Kills More Than 100 al-Shabab Militants

More than 100 al-Shabaab militants were killed Tuesday in the latest US airstrike in Somalia the Pentagon announced, the latest in a series of strikes against the al Qaeda affiliated group and ISIS fighters in the war-torn country meant to support the local government. The strike occurred 125 miles northwest of the capital of Mogadishu, and was the 29th such strike since the start of 2017, and 7th since November 9.

The Pentagon released the following statement commemorating the latest airstrike:

U.S. Conducts Airstrike in Support of the Federal Government of Somalia

In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, U.S. forces conducted an airstrike in Somalia against an al-Shabaab camp on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at approximately 10:30 a.m. local Somalia time, killing more than 100 militants. The operation occurred 125 miles northwest of the capital, Mogadishu.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is in Somalia for the same reason it has garrisoned so much of the rest of the planet; to regime-change its government to a more Western/US centric government; expropriate its resources, to which the US govenment and those corporations which own it have utterly no moral right; and to insure that these goods are only sold to countries of which we approve, and only for US dollars.

Wild Footage Of Mugabe's Son Drenched In Diamonds, Right Before Zimbabwe Coup

Days before the military coup d’état in Zimbabwe, one of Mugabe’s sons uploaded a snapchat displaying his £45,000 diamond watch with £200 champagne, according to Daily Mail. The story went viral fueling anger of Zimbabweans as the country suffers from an economic collapse with a 95% unemployment rate.

Delingpole: Trump Right to Let Big-Game Hunters Bring Back Elephant Head Trophies from Africa

Lane runs the Bhejane Trust, a charity dedicated to preserving the black rhino in parks including Hwange. “I’m a great fan of Prince William, but he’s got it completely wrong on trophy hunting,” he tells me. “Not only does it provide a large chunk of our national park budget, but it gives local people a vested interest in preserving wildlife.”

Take elephants — one of the big five species most favoured by trophy hunters (the others being lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, and rhino). To a squeamish urban Westerner, it might seem a monumental tragedy when — as happened in Zimbabwe in October — a massive bull elephant gets shot by some fat German trophy hunter. To a starving African villager, though, it’s a lifeline.

STARVED, ‘MUTILATED’ AND BLACKMAILED, MIGRANTS AUCTIONED OFF AS SLAVES, BY SMUGGLERS IN LIBYA

From becoming one of the major points in Africa from which migrants can attempt to cross over into Europe, Libya is now turning into a slave trade city thanks to the heavy flow of desperate people from other parts of the continent. A new investigation has revealed people are being sold as modern-day slaves for as little as £300 ($400).
According to CNN which exposed the racket, slave sales are conducted on the outskirts of the nation’s capital, Tripoli, where auctions take place for various types of manual labourers. In one case, a video was made available, which shows the sale of “big strong boys for farm work”.
An undercover operation revealed similar auctions where around a dozen people were sold in a matter of five to six minutes. “Does anybody need a digger? This is a digger, a big, strong man, he’ll dig,” an auctioneer calls out in one clip. “What am I bid, what am I bid?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In her cheerleading for the forcible removal of Ghadaffi as the governmental head of Libya via assassination, did Hillary Clinton ever see this possibility coming?!?

That a new slave trade would result from the wake of his assassination?!?

The short answer has to be, "Hell, no!!"

US Quietly Builds Up Troops in Somalia

One of the many quiet escalations in countries where US military operations on the ground hadn’t really been well publicized in the first place, officials say that the US has more than doubled the number of ground troops in Somalia this year, and now have over 500 troops there.

This is the most troops the US have had in the country since 1993, when the Black Hawk Down incident killed 18 US soldiers and led to a quick withdrawal from the nation. This year was also the first year since 1993 that any US troops died in Somalia.

This escalation has involved a soaring number of US airstrikes in Somalia, not to mention a number of joint ground operations with Somali forces, mostly against al-Shabaab fighters, but many of them with very unclear goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "goals" of this escalation are entirely clear, if one knows where to look for them:

Natural resources: uranium and largely unexploited reserves of iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt, natural gas, likely oil reserves
Definition: This entry lists a country's mineral, petroleum, hydropower, and other resources of commercial importance.

You can see the words "largely unexploited"; that is the whole point;
the US government wants to get to those resources before Russia/China can lay claim to them; it is just that simple.

US lifts ban on import of 'elephant trophies' from Zimbabwe

The US Fish and Wildlife Service under US President Donald Trump has decided to allow the remains of elephants hunted for sport in Zimbabwe to be imported into the United States, reversing a ban on such imports introduced in 2014.

Zimbabwe's elephants are listed as "threatened" under the US Endangered Species Act (ESA).

The service justified the change by saying the ban, imposed under former president Barack Obama, was based on limited information available at the time.

Zimbabwe Coup Leader Traveled to China One Week Before Arresting Mugabe

Let’s Stop Glorifying War

When’s the last time our media covered war honestly? When’s the last time you saw combat footage of American troops under fire, or of American troops killing others in the name of keeping us safe from enemies? When was the last time you saw an American soldier panicking, firing wildly, perhaps killing members of his own unit (fratricide) or innocent civilians caught in the crossfire of war? Maybe in the 1960s during coverage of the Vietnam War?

War is not glorious. It may feature noble deeds and remarkable sacrifices, but it also features brutality and many other bloody realities. War breaks men (and women) down. It does so because war is unnatural. Yes, war is many things, but it most certainly is about killing. Occasionally, the killing is even necessary. (Just ask those enslaved by the Nazis or the Japanese whether they greeted Allied troops as liberators.)

US Senator Inhofe 'Encouraged' by Zimbabwe Military’s Rejection of Mugabe

US Senator Jim Inhofe said on Wednesday he was encouraged by the reports of a "peaceful action by the Zimbabwean military to reject the brutal and restrictive dictatorship of President Mugabe".

"I am cautiously optimistic that the military’s apparent efforts to restore differing viewpoints to the government will be an important step in that journey," Inhofe said.

Inhofe Hopeful for Democratic Zimbabwe

U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe is hopeful the military takeover of Zimbabwe from President Robert Mugabe leads to a true democratic state for the beleaguered African country. Mugabe has been president since 1987. He is now under house arrest by the military, which is claiming its takeover of the government is not a coup. The move is likely to be challenged by the Southern Africa Development Community.

Zimbabwe: Emmerson Mnangagwa Named Interim Leader as Mugabe Deposed

Zimbabwe’s military says it has deposed President Robert Mugabe and first lady Grace Mugabe and has appointed recently ousted Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa as interim president. This comes just one week after President Mugabe ousted the vice president—who’s a close ally of Zimbabwe’s army chief. Witnesses reported seeing armored personnel carriers in the streets, with heavy gun and artillery fire in parts of the capital Harare. Zimbabwe’s military denied it had carried out a coup.

Zimbabwe coup general seizes airwaves, announces regime change

An anti-Mugabe sector of the army, led by General Constantine Chiwenga, has taken control of the main TV station in Harare, following threats that the military would take governmental matters in its own hands following Mugabe's dismissal of Vice-President Mnangagwa. Mnangagwa has tremendous pull with the military and with General Constantine Chiwenga, as he played a major role in the country's liberation wars. With mounting pressure on Mugabe from the west over the last decade and a half, it is unclear at this moment to what extent this plot also involves the United States. It is a complex situation to assess because while the US has stated its desire to remove Mugabe, inter-party disputes over succession are the apparent cause. Mugabe has not directly said that Mnangagwa is backed by foreign forces, only that he is 'ideologically' not 'solid'.

Military Coup Reportedly Under Way In Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is on edge amid speculation that a military coup is in progress, with army tanks seen outside the capital a day after the army commander threatened to "step in" to calm political tensions over the president's firing of his vice president. The Associated Press said it saw three tanks with several soldiers in a convoy on a road heading toward an army barracks just outside the capital, Harare, while Reuters reported that four tanks were seen heading toward the capital.

Washington’s Drug of Choice in the War on Terror

As you read today’s piece by historian and TomDispatch regular Alfred McCoy, author most recently of In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of U.S. Global Power, think of Afghanistan as the gateway drug for three Washington administrations.

Meanwhile, the whole question of opium eradication has, according to Mashal, gotten surprisingly "little attention in the Trump administration’s new strategy for the Afghan war." It seems that U.S. counter-narcotics officials have come to accept a new reality "with a sense of helplessness" – that the country now supplies 85% of the world’s heroin and there’s no end to this in sight.

Madagascar plague expert fears Black Death that has killed 140 people in Madagascar become untreatable and spread to the UK

Professor Paul Hunter also warned it was possible for the disease to reach Europe and North America like the Ebola virus did in 2014 following an outbreak in West Africa. Hunter, who lectures in health protection at the University of East Anglia, said: "As with any disease, it's a real worry that it mutates and become untreatable."

Evidence mounts that PLAGUE outbreak in Africa is an engineered depopulation bioweapon

Thousands of people have been infected and over 143 are now reported dead from the plague outbreak that’s now threatening Africa, reports the UK Daily Mail. “Health officials are unsure how this year’s outbreak began,” reports the paper. “Experts warn the disease spreads quicker in heavily populated areas.”

Isn’t it interesting that just as Prince William is calling for “urgent depopulation efforts” in Africa, we suddenly have the rapid spread of the plague from unknown origins? As Natural News previously reported, Prince William appears to be pushing for depopulation efforts across Africa in the name of environmentalism:

“Africa’s rapidly growing human population is predicted to more than double by 2050 – a staggering increase of three and a half million people per month,” Prince William explained during a recent event hosted by the Tusk Trust, a charity that is committed to protecting African wildlife.

Why Were Vatican And RC Church Hierarchies NOT Unnerved About Infertility “Ingredients” In WHO’s African Tetanus Vaccine Campaign?

Plague fears grow as Malawi becomes tenth African nation put on alert for the spread of the killer disease

Malawi is bracing itself for an outbreak of the plague after the deadly disease continues to spread across the island nation of Madagascar.
At least 143 people have died and more than 2,000 others have been infected in Madagascar since an outbreak in early August this year.

Yet Malawi's health secretary confirmed the country is ready for any reported cases of the disease amid mounting concerns of Africa's 'porous borders'.
Dr Dan Namarika, principal secretary in the ministry of health, said the country were working in conjunction with Mozambique to help best prepare for a possible outbreak.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Madagascar... is an island.

It would be a simple thing to close down the airport and the ports, to keep the contagion from spreading, yet this has not been not done by the government of Madagascar; why?!?

The UN and Genocide by Starvation in Somalia

What is it going to take for the international media to catch on to this most insidious of crimes, for the world had the food to prevent all these deaths, something the UN is supposed to be on top of.

But then one of the top dogs at the UN is the Executive Director of UNICEF, supposedly the number one (N)o (G)ood (O)utfit with the responsibility to prevent this crime, headed by former National Security Advisor to Pres. Clinton and later failed nominee to head the CIA , Anthony Lake, whose appointment was a favor returned by Pres. Obama. Loyalty to empire can have its rewards in the form of being overlord of a multi billion dollar a year aid empire internationally, UNICEF, and the ability to carry out “long term solutions” as in genocide by starvation of the Somali people.

But given the brutal history of the Belgian monarchy in the Congo, and the historic transfer of wealth out of the country to its rulers in Europe, some readers quickly declared the piece not only tone deaf, but also a stunning display of ignorance.

Nigerien Soldier Contradicts Pentagon’s Claims About Ambush

A Nigerien soldier who survived the Daesh ambush that claimed eight lives in early October has told the Washington Post that the US special forces were assisting Niamey in a search and destroy operation - which runs counter to the Pentagon’s claim that the troops were on a simple and low-risk reconnaissance mission when they were killed.

Imperial Blind Spots And US Interventions In Africa

Upon being informed of the death of four US Green Berets in Niger, Senator Lindsey Graham exclaimed: “I didn’t know there were 1000 troops in Niger.” Although the number was slightly inflated, Graham’s willful ignorance as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee is not only a sad commentary on the lack of oversight but also a reflection of the continual imperial blind spots that inform US interventions in Africa.

New 'Black Death' FOUND: Deadly virus WORSE than plague and with no CURE breaks out - WHO

The disease, known as Marburg virus disease (MVD), is similar to Ebola and can be lethal in up to 90 per cent of cases.

Emergency screening has begun at the Kenya-Uganda border in Turkana after three members of the same family died of the disease in Uganda.

Health workers have been asked to work with communities to stop the deadly Marburg outbreak from devastating communities in the rural region.

Dr Zabulon Yoti, Technical Coordinator for Emergencies at the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Africa, said: “Community engagement is the cornerstone of emergency response.”

He urged health officials to “work with the communities to build their capacity for success and sustainability” and develop a better understanding of the local customs and traditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Africa is one of the most under-exploited regions on the planet, harboring an incredible wealths of natural resources; I have to wonder if this was an accidental outbreak, or an attempt at depopulation to make the entire process of expropriation of those resources more cost-effective for the corporations (and the world's military protecting these processes) doing this.

I would also be interested in finding out if this version of Marburg has a genetic marker of any kind; Israeli scientists have been working on this kind of lethal bug for decades, to ultimately be used against Arabs and Palestinians, but which would be harmless to Israelis.

Yes, I am highly cynical; but the more I see of humankind's inhumanity to its brother and sister humans, there are moments when I just cannot keep up; and this is, potentially, one of those moments, if in fact the infection has been deliberately induced.

The Pentagon’s gradually escalating combat mission in Somalia reached another important milestone Friday - one of many that have occurred since the inauguration of President Donald Trump - when the military revealed that it had carried out the first airstrikes against Islamic State-linked fighters in Somalia.

The news comes as ISIS forces in Syria were driven out of their last remaining patch of territory as Syrian Army forces retook the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, inspiring even anti-Assad pundits to marvel at the Army’s advance against seemingly insurmountable odds.

A US official told the Associated Press the strikes were carried out in northeastern Somalia, with the first around midnight local time and the second later in the morning. The official was not authorized to discuss the mission publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is in Somalia for the same reasons it is occupying large swathes of real estate in so many other countries; to regime change the government toward a US/Western-centric stance; to expropriate natural resources to which the US government has absolutely no moral right; and to insure that those resources are sold only in US dollars, and to countries of which we approve.

No real surprise here.

Warnings of ‘GLOBAL OUTBREAK’ of Black Death as PLAGUE continues to spread

Some 1,300 cases of the pneumonic plague, which is transmitted by air, have now been confirmed.

An estimated 50 million lives were lost as a result of the Black Death epidemic of the 1300s.

And now the deadly disease has spread into more African countries after taking root in Madagascar.

Countries affected include South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros, the Seychelles, Mauritius and Reunion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why have the roads in and out of Madagascar, as well as the airport, not been closed, to prevent further contaigon from this outbreak?!?

This is a real puzzlement to me.

Uganda, South Africa Call for Economic Liberation of Africa

South Africa and Uganda called for the economic liberation of their countries and others on the continent following official tributes honoring the sacrifices of fallen African freedom fighters and pioneers of the struggle to liberate their lands from European colonization. “Someone is stealing from the African countries because the dominant forces, economic forces, in South Africa that kept Black people enslaved are still there,” said Kahinda Otaffire, Uganda's Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, TeleSUR reported. He added that amid rampant economic challenges facing many African governments, which have kept millions of people in abject poverty, the continent's natural and human resources continue to be exploited and plundered by foreign forces, a reality that continues to this day despite the assertion that Africa is liberated. “We have allowed the ideologically bankrupt to lead our communities,” Otaffire told the crowd, which included Ugandan and South African soldiers.

US Soldiers in Niger Were Left Behind in Evacuation

Officially, the US military never leaves troops behind. Secretary of State James Mattis even said literally this last week, in denying that a soldier might’ve been left behind in the October 4 Niger ambush, in which four US special forces were killed.

As details continue to emerge on the incident, however, it appears increasingly certain that Mattis hadn’t told the truth, with officials now saying that when French helicopters evacuated the US forces, they had lost contact with four US troops, and only evacuated seven out of 11 in the unit.

Hours later, they managed to return to recover the bodies of the three soldiers initially reported killed. The fourth soldier wasn’t found for another two days. That the troops left without contact with the four makes it uncertain if some might’ve been alive at the time, and died abandoned on the field.

Niger: Finally, A War John McCain Doesn’t Love

Niger: Finally, A War John McCain Doesn’t Love

News first broke about America’s Niger misadventure on October 4. “The real news here is that the US has forces in Niger, where they’re conducting covert operations,” this writer tweeted out. “Hashtag America First.”

Official media ignored the ambush of the American Special Forces, until the story gained anti-Trump traction. No word came from John McCain. Three weeks hence, the senator from Arizona is making history. McCain, who has never encountered a war he wasn’t eager to prosecute, is questioning the folly in Niger.

The senator from Arizona can run but can’t hide from the pollution he has left along his political path. Republicans wisely rejected war in Kosovo; McCain jettisoned party loyalty to call for bombs from above and “more boots on the ground.” At the prospects of war with Iran, McCain burst into song, “Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iran.” The possibility still makes this war ghoul smile. Before that, McCain promised a 100-year war in Iraq.

Trump: ‘My Generals’ Authorized US Missions In Niger': I Gave Them Authority to Do What's Right'

In comments Wednesday regarding the recent revealed US military operation inside Niger, President Trump confirmed that he never personally authorized any of the mission, but rather that “my generals and my military” did that all on their own.

Trump insisted his generals “are great generals” and “I gave them authority to do what’s right” and he is confident that eventually “we’re going to win.” Trump added that he’s been finding out about the mission just like everyone else has.

Which seems like a huge problem, despite no one treating it like one. President Trump was apparently “informed” of Niger after the October 4 ambush when they realized one of the soldiers was missing, and Senate Armed Services

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The stock answer as to why the US military is in Niger is "ISIS"; the real answer as to why the US military is in Niger has to do with its abundance of natural resources; expropriating them; and not letting Russia or China exploit them.

The Natural Resources of Niger

And that President Trump was not informed of the Niger operation until after the ambush had taken place, smacks of an absolutely cavalier lack of communications between his generals and President Trump.

To an ordinary person like myself, this is extraordinarily frightening, and could, potentially, put us into a would war which the President would be unable to stop, because he couldn't see it coming, due to the actions of these generals.

And beneath it, comes the following headline:

US Prepares Armed Drones for Lethal Strikes in Niger: Soldiers' Deaths Used to Pressure Niger Govt to Accept Strikes

The drone strikes will do precisely what they have done in places like Afghanistan; Pakistan; Somalia; Iraq; Yemen; and Syria; they will kill far more innocent civilians than the bad guys, then radicalize those who are left behind to become jihadists, and our troops' worst enemies, literally.

I am watching the feed on Fox News right now, seeing President selling his proposal to conquer the opioid addiction in this country; I have to wish that this country was not, collectively, so addicted to other countries' natural resources.

Hordes of Africans Waiting to Flood Europe - Excellent Russian TV Report

100s of 1000s of Africans are being held in what are essentially slave camps under brutal conditions, awaiting shipment to Europe via a network of pro-immigration NGOs and human traffickers. It is an eye-opener.

The EU only has itself to blame for this next tsunami of refugees about to storm their shores. The refugees are merely riding the blood red tidal wave NATO-backed wars.

US Officials: Niger Is ‘Hub’ for US Operations in Western Africa

US officials describing the military operation in Niger, which only became public knowledge earlier this month after four US special forces were killed in an ambush, have not only revealed that nearly 1,000 US troops are on the ground in Niger, a massive force for the tiny country, but that this is the “hub” for US military operations in Western Africa.

Details on what exactly that means are scant, since the Niger military operation was basically a secret, and by extension so are all the other regional operations that we’re not being told about. Officials did assure reporters Niger has the most troops in the region.

Niger has hosted a US drone base for years, and about 100 troops were reported deployed in 2012. Somewhere between then and now, this increased ten-fold, and those troops started engaging in patrols. African Command says there are no armed US warplanes in West Africa at present, but that they rely on French warplanes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are in Niger for the same reasons US troops are garrisoned all over the world; to insure its government is western-centric; to expropriate resources to which those companies supporting both political parties have utterly no moral right; and to insure that those resources are only sold to countries of which the US government approves, and only in the US dollar.

This is also, by the way, an insurance against Russia and China getting hold of those resources before US companies do.

U.S. Senators Stunned to Discover We Have 1,000 Troops in Niger

***
Many lawmakers assiduously duck these questions. But on the Sunday shows, several were forced to address them in the aftermath of four soldiers dying under still-mysterious circumstances near the small town of Tongo Tongo. In the process, two powerful Senators tacitly admitted that they hadn’t even known the extent of U.S. involvement in Niger in the first place.

America's Scramble for Africa

The ugly row over whether President Trump disrespected the young widow of a fallen American soldier has overshadowed a bigger issue. That is, the increasing number of US military operations across the African continent.

Two weeks ago, Sgt La David Johnson (25) was killed along with three other US special forces troops when Islamist militants ambushed their patrol in the West African country of Niger. Trump got into hot water this week about reported offhand comments he made to the widow of Green Beret Johnson. The president denies he said anything disrespectful. Although the dead soldier's family says otherwise.

In all the media controversy over what Trump said or didn't say, questions about what US troops are doing in Niger are unfortunately overlooked. Not just Niger, but in dozens of other African nations.
It is reckoned from US army data that there are thousands of special forces and other military personnel carrying out up to 100 missions at any given time in some 24 African states.
