THE CONTINUITY-OF-AGENDA PRESIDENT MARCHES INTO SOMALIA
There has been very little action regarding Somalia. A few years ago the UK named Somalia as the greatest national security to the UK. There have been a few skirmishes with the European Army (yes, it already exists) off the coast of Somalia. Michael Adebalajo was apparently recruited there. And that's about it.
But it looks like things are finally going to get cranked up a notch or two!
President Trump’s recommendations from the Pentagon are starting to trickle in, and they seem to everywhere involve more escalations of US involvement and increased flexibility for the Pentagon to order airstrikes in various countries to target “apparent threats.”
And while it’s not as high profile as recommendations expected later this week in places like Syria, that’s the case for Somalia as well, where the Pentagon is seeking increased aid for the Somali Army, moving US special forces closer to the front lines, and loosening up restrictions on airstrikes.
