Default America's Empire of African Bases

A long article by two authors known to oppose this activity, but as part of the jigsaw on what is happening useful IMHO:http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/176070/

To be fair 'bases' is widely interpreted, a good number are access to refuelling facilities. I am surprised there is a sign for one place in South Africa and none in Morocco.

A small number of SWJ Blog threads have been merged into this thread today. A search for Africa in the title shows fifty threads, which do not directly refer to AFRICOM or US involvement in Africa.

A new thread has been created for this theme in 2018: AFRICOM plus US involvement in Africa
