Default AFRICOM plus US involvement in Africa 2018 onwards

This is a new thread to gather the various components of the USA's involvement in Africa, largely in the continent south of the Sahara.

The previous thread Africom Stands Up (Merged thread) covers 2006-2017, with 392 posts and 156k views. There are a few other threads scattered around, in particular a late 2017 thread on the US SOF deaths in Niger, which remains a stand alone and open thread:Four Special Forces personnel killed in Niger ambush

There is a separate, closed thread:AFRICOM and the perception mess which upon review defies merging; it had 161 posts and 52k views.

Default Some context

One must wonder how AFRICOM, let alone the USA, will be seen after President Trump's '#### hole' remarks that labeled all of Africa.
