[stopwar.org.uk] Africa is now ‘front a

[stopwar.org.uk] Africa is now ‘front and centre’ in the US war on terror – Increased U.S. spending, especially at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, reflects Africa’s growing importance to counter-terrorism efforts – The Pentagon has begun a burst of spending in Africa, expanding its main base on the continent and investing in air facilities, flight services, telecommunications and electrical upgrades as the U.S. military deepens its footprint in a region with a rising threat of Islamist terrorism.

Hundreds of millions of dollars in expenditures, detailed in unclassified federal documents, demonstrate Africa’s increasing importance to U.S. military and counter-terrorism operations as the war in Iraq has ended and American troops withdraw from Afghanistan. http://stopwar.org.uk/news/africa-is-now-front-and-centre-in-the-us-war-on-terror#.UmYTIxCcwS-
