This video from the USA says about itself:
5 December 2016
The US has recently escalated a … war in Somalia over the newly found oil reserves off the shores of Somalia and Kenya.
Jimmy Dore breaks it down.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
For the first time since 1993, a US soldier has lost his life in Somalia. …
The US American armed forces have not disclosed further details. It is believed that the killed soldier was a member of the Navy Seals elite unit. …
In 1993, eighteen American soldiers died in Somalia when two Black Hawk helicopters were shot down, after which US troops carried out an unsuccessful rescue operation. Bodies of dead US soldiers were dragged through the streets of Mogadishu in triumph. …
The cruel irony in this that the Somali United States puppet army, now trained by the Pentagon as ordered by Donald Trump, are basically the same warlord-commanded fighters who dragged the dead bodies of United States soldiers through the streets in 1993.
Although promoted in the name of “political reform,” “economic development,” and “drought relief,” the “London Conference on Somalia,” hosted by the British government in London from May 12 to 13, served as a planning forum for imperialist military projects in Somalia and the Horn of Africa. The main outcome of the conference was a Security Pact that commits the United Kingdom and unnamed “international partners” to support the creation of a new Somali National Army (SNA). The SNA force is planned to include 18,000 regular soldiers, 4,000 special forces, and a Somalia Air Force and Somalia Maritime Force, and will be tasked with defending the Federal Government of Somalia (FSG): here.
