US bombs have been falling on Iraq for several weeks now, and an attack is also planned against Syria. At the NATO summit in Wales this weekend it was agreed to position thousands of troops on Russia's border to be prepared for an attack in a moment's notice.
It seems like it was only yesterday that the US conducted yet another attack on Pakistan...oh wait, it was only yesterday!
But did you know that the US is also still attacking Africa on a steady basis?
At the end of the day yesterday US forces conducted an attack on the what they claim are Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab militants in Somalia. These small groups have been fighting against the US-backed regime in Somalia which is enough to earn them ongoing drone strikes from Washington. The idea that a small, localized Islamist movement in a place like Somalia is a threat to the United States is hard to comprehend.
Also hard to understand how there is any legal justification for the Obama administration to conduct airstrikes on Africa at all. Has Congress declared war on Somalia? Nevertheless the endless US global war continues...
