@OgbeniDemola “If they get past Libya, they are coming for you…”

11 years later & the fallout from this criminal act is still being felt everywhere. Key development projects throughout Africa, financed by Libya, have all grounded to a halt.…
@OgbeniDemola Saudi Arabia and Qatar, key players in Libya’s demise, are now busy grabbing large tracts of land in Africa.This would not have been possible if Qaddafi was alive. The expansion of #AFRICOM, the expansion of US military bases, & the building of new military bases by the Chinese..
@OgbeniDemola ...and the Turks in Africa would also not have been possible if Qaddafi was alive. Indeed, there would have been a fierce resistance to the current recolonization and re-carving of Africa if Muammar Qaddafi was alive and the Libyan Jamahiriya was flourishing as before.

#Spinelli lo snaturamento della #sinistra come resa al #mercato, ma dimentica una cosa fondamentale: la sinistra centrista non ha solo ceduto senza ritegno al mercato, ma anche all'interventismo militare. Liberismo come sinistra a letto con #WallStreet e #Pentagono
l'esempio è proprio la sinistra centrista italiana: ha permesso che l'Italia diventasse la base di lancio di tutte le guerre #USA e,ora che sinistra tedesca protesta contro atomiche USA in Germania ecc. rischiamo che situazione Italia peggiori: più guerre,più droni,più #Africom

#AFRICOM may soon have the authority to conduct airstrikes in #Kenya. Significant news from @EricSchmittNYT and @charlie_savage. In #Somalia, al-Shabaab has grown more powerful as US airstrikes have spiked.…
The article notes that Kenyan authorities have to assent before a strike. Strikes in #Somalia are also carried out "in partnership" with the government, but issues include politicized intelligence and power imbalances.
Here's some of my reporting from over the last 18 months on US strikes in Somalia :…

Yesterday General Waldhauser said US #airstrikes won't stop al Shabab in #Somalia. I spent five weeks on the ground investigating the impact of the strikes. Here's what I found:…
Halimo Mohamed Abdi said the blast broke both her hips, left shrapnel embedded in her thigh, and caused terrible burns that cost her both breasts.Before she lost consciousness, she told me, she saw three boys—9, 10, and 16—die in the explosion about 30 miles outside #Mogadishu.
Abdi, like many Somali herders, doesn’t follow the Western calendar, so she’s unsure of the exact date of the strike. But she says it was about two weeks before Eid al-Fitr, which began on the evening of June 14 last year.
