Obama’s militarization of Africa expands to Niger

Obama’s re-colonization of Africa continues to march on. The imperialist president has alerted Congress that he has sent 100 armed troops to Niger helping to set up the newest drone base in Africa. Supposedly the drone base is there to help the French imperialists fight Al Qaeda militants in neighboring Mali, but this is just cover for AFRICOM’s conquest of west Africa. Even though this is being reported in the mainstream media the general public doesn’t seem to care. For the political right this is totally fine and justifiable in their unending fight against Islamic terrorists, where as the cowardly left is completely fine with this provided the person implementing it has a “D” next to their name. The African people, who will suffer the blowback of such policies, are of course never consulted on wether or not they would like an American special forces operating an assassination drone base in their country. Obama relies on the support of authoritarian African leaders who will sell out their own country for money and military hardware from America. With all of the discussion in the past few weeks on drones, thanks in part to the Senate confirmation hearings of the assassination czar John Brennan, you might think that Americans would at the very least question the perceived benefit of yet another drone base in a foreign country. But alas the general public doesn’t bat an eye. What’s to worry about? It’s not like an influx of American military personal and advisers has ever had a negative effect on a foreign countries politics or internal conflicts.
