The Americans now admit they are training battalions of African Rangers and counterinsurgency
troops. The next step is the proliferation of death squads in West Africa, as the U.S. did in Southeast
Asia and Latin America. Nigeria’s schoolgirls may or may not be rescued, but U.S. and European
“humanitarian” military interventionists have already gained more than they could have imagined.


V“NATO’s aggression against Libya begat the sub-Saharan chaos that justified the French and U.S. occupation of Mali and Niger.”

Militarily, Africa is fast becoming an American continent. Barack Obama, who has been president
for all but the first year of AFRICOM’s existence, has succeeded in integrating U.S. fighting units,
bases, training regimens, equipment and financing into the military structures of all but a handful
of African nations. The great pan-Africanist and former Ghanaian president Kwame Nkrumah’s
dream of a militarily united Africa has been all but realized – with Americans and Europeans in
charge. Under the guise of “humanitarian” intervention, Obama has vastly expanded Bill Clinton
and George Bush’s African footprints, so that only a few patches on the continental map lie outside
Washington’s sphere of operations. Eritrea and Zimbabwe are the notable exceptions – and,
therefore, future targets.

Africa is occupied territory. The African Union doesn’t even pretend to be in charge of its own
nominal peace-keeping missions, which are little more than opportunities for African militaries to
get paid for doing the West’s bidding. China and Brazil may be garnering the lion’s share of trade
with Africa, but the men with the guns are loyal to AFRICOM – the sugar daddy to the continent’s
military class. U.S. troops now sleep in African barracks, brothers in arms with African officers who
can determine who will sleep next week in the presidential mansion.

The pace of U.S. penetration of West Africa has quickened dramatically since 2011, when Obama
bombed Muammar Gaddafi’s Libyan government out of existence, setting a flood of jihadists and
weapons streaming east to Syria and south to destabilize the nations of the Sahel. Chaos ensued –
beautiful chaos, if you are a U.S. military planner seeking justification for ever-larger missions.
NATO’s aggression against Libya begat the sub-Saharan chaos that justified the French and U.S.
occupation of Mali and Niger. Hyperactive North African jihadists, empowered by American
bombs, weapons and money, trained and outfitted their brethren on the continent, including
elements of Nigeria’s Boko Haram. The Yoruba-speaking Islamic warriors then bequeathed
AFRICOM a priceless gift: nearly 300 schoolgirls in need of rescuing, perfect fodder for
“humanitarian” intervention.

Nobody had to ask twice that Obama “Do something!”
