A brigade of 3,000 US soldiers will be deployed to Africa to battle terrorism and hunger or whatever.
The Army Times reported:

A brigade will deploy to Africa next year in a pilot program that assigns brigades on a rotational basis to regions around the globe, the Army announced in May.

Roughly 3,000 soldiers — and likely more — are expected to serve tours across the continent in 2013, training foreign militaries and aiding locals.

As part of a “regionally aligned force concept,” soldiers will live and work among Africans in safe communities approved by the U.S. government, said Maj. Gen. David R. Hogg, head of U.S. Army Africa.

Tours could last a few weeks or months and include multiple missions at different locations, he said.

The Army has not announced which brigade would deploy or where the soldiers would come from.

As the Afghanistan war winds down, the new readiness model affords Army units more time to learn regional cultures and languages and train for specific threats and missions.

Africa, in particular, has emerged as a greater priority for the U.S. government because terrorist groups there have become an increasing threat to U.S. and regional security.

Though U.S. soldiers have operated in Africa for decades, including more than 1,200 soldiers currently stationed at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, the region in many ways remains the Army’s last frontier.

“As far as our mission goes, it’s uncharted territory,” Hogg said from his headquarters in Vicenza, Italy.

But “I’m not there to win their wars or settle their differences,” he added.

Instead, with more soldiers, U.S. Army Africa will continue to strengthen ties with regional militaries and governments by teaching military tactics, medicine and logistics, as well as combating famine, disease and terrorism in secure environments.

Of course, the far left peace-nuts will give Obama a complete pass on this.

  1. U.S. Army Africa ???….I’m retired from the U.S. Navy

    Not the U.S Navy Bulgaria…or the U.S. Navy Europe

  2. Obamas own personal army without checks and balances of Congres to do as HE wants? Call this a dictatorship because that is what this is!

  3. “soldiers will live and work among Africans in safe communities approved by the U.S. government”

    Maybe I’m just getting cynical in my old age, but that sounds an awful lot like the “Strategic Hamlet” program in Viet Nam to me.

  4. ‘As far as our mission goes, it’s uncharted territory’. There is no mission, this is using war trained soldiers as the Peace Corps. All part of weakening the U.S. military. What will the perception of the U.S. Army be with the openly gay soldiers teaching the deprived Third World Africans how to plant the maize better.

  5. Oh for crying out loud, how many more “police actions” is this Amateur Oblama going to get us into?

  6. I must have missed something. Did Obama declare war on Africa? Other than realizing this is nothing but neo-Colonialism, where does this neo-Kenyan find authority for such placements of our military in African nations?

    Barry’s dad ought to be spinning in his grave now. His son’s got a taste of totalitarianist power and it tastes good, like blood to a pig in a confinement farm. He’s gone cannibal.

  7. iF GWB was doing this every sube head an d secvretary and adm asst would besubpoenaed to testify
    ir indicted pending spilling the beans on superiors.
    So the Congress does nothing on this? the GOP (hah) does nothing on this?

  8. Waste of time. Africa cannot be changed at all. The greatest Peoples who ever walked the Earth could not change the nature of Africans one whit.

  9. Another way to degrade combat readiness and keep arms-trained Whites out of the country. It’s a double hitter for D’Won.

  10. Couldn’t we just do that here? Instead of deploying them to Africa how about Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore, or hell, how ’bout D.C.?

  11. Hey, Subprime. We know you’re black. You’ve got the black parasite vote. No need to put American troops in harm’s way in darkest, dysfunctional Africa.

  12. Soooooo, Komrad Barry is getting ready to invade his Homeland of Kenya?

  13. This is outrageous! The US Army is not the frickin’ Peace Corps! How quickly will this sow dissension among the ranks?

    Hussein the Occupier-in-Chief and his henchmen, Commie Panetta and Shrillary must be stopped.

  14. Ok libs. Now: “the USA is an imperialist nation…” Hey where’d you guys go?

    He slashes the military personnel and budget, then over-uses the military. Thanks US soldiers for surviving this buffoon.

    Africa needs access to real energy sources like coal and real pest control like DDT. We did it and it worked. Taking a few steps back away from islam would be a good idea too. Help slow down on that machete attack type stuff that crops up from time to time. By the way where in Africa is “different locations?”

  15. It’s the peace corps

  16. funny, since by next year this won’t happen because he will no longer be president…

  17. If our soldiers are going to be fighting terrorism, how could that be done in “secure environments”? If it’s secure then what would terrorists be doing there endangering our soldiers?

    I DON’T WANT OUR ARMY OR ANYONE GOING TO AFRICA, AND WHO THE HELL IS THE US ARMY AFRICA???? WHO THE HELL AUTHORIZED THIS?? WHAT IS GOING ON IN AFRICA THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE US ARMY TO GO THERE??? THIS SOUNDS LIKE A U.N. MISSION IF YOU ASK ME!!! DID OBAMA PASS THIS THROUGH THE CONGRESS OR DID HE DO LIKE HE DID LAST MONTH OR SO WHEN HE SENT TROOPS TO UGANDA TO AID IN PROTECTING KENYA, THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN JUST MORE OF THAT. OBAMA’S AFRICAN FRIENDS NEEDING OUR MILITARY TO KILL INSTEAD OF KENYAN YOUNG MEN!!

    GET OUR SOLDIERS OUT OF AFRICA, DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!! WE DON’T BELONG THERE, WE DON’T HAVE ANY MISSION THERE AND WHO THE HELL GAVE ORDERS TO THIS COMMANDER FOR A BRIGADE TO GO ANYWHERE…..WHO GAVE HIM THESE ORDERS????? OBAMA???!!!!
