Recent policy shifts within the White House suggest that the US is entering back onto the war path.
Within 100 days of Trump in office, the President bombed Syria, not ISIS but the government of Syria, brought America to the brink of war with North Korea, and now is sending more troops to Somalia. Sound familiar?
The plan was called seven countries in five years by Retired 4-star U.S. Army General Wesley Clark. The plan was for the USA to go into “Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran,” within the time frame of five years. With the exception of it being past five years, it is increasingly evident that once again we are going to go back onto this agenda, but under Trump, it didn’t start with bombing Syria, instead, according to Global Research, it began with the travel ban.
It is worth noting that 6 out of these 7 countries (with the exception of Lebanon) identified by General Wesley Clark “to be taken out” are now the object of President Trump’s ban on Muslims’ entry to the US: Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Iran and Yemen.
All of these countries are on the Pentagon’s drawing board. These countries have been directly or indirectly been the object of US aggression. (M. Ch. GR Editor) – GR
The United States will now send dozens of additional troops to Somalia to train and equip the Somali National Army and the forces participating in the African Union Mission in Somalia there.
The next Somalia deployment will be the largest since since 1993, when 18 US soldiers died in a battle dramatized in the movie Black Hawk Down.
“The objective of this particular train and equip mission is to improve the logistical capacity of the Somali National Army and the focus will be on teaching basic logistics operations, which will allow Somalia forces to better fight al Shabaab,” the spokesman added.
Whether or not the US will further engage against al Shabaab remains to be seen, but the obvious takeaway is that the US is once again further expanding its presence militarily on the World Stage, further leading to a destabilizing world.
