Military Review

The United States decided to show China who is the boss in East Africa?

75
Against the background of information that China intends to create the first foreign naval base - in the African state of Djibouti - the Pentagon decided to demonstrate that on the Horn of Africa it is ready to defend "democratic gains". So, the command of the US Armed Forces on the official page on the social network publishes material, which refers to the exercises conducted by the US military in the territory of Djibouti.


It is stated that military exercises were launched at the end of 2017 of the year. They were attended by French colleagues in NATO. We are talking about the expeditionary force (numbering 51 / 5), which included the military personnel of the armed forces of France and the United States.

The United States decided to show China who is the boss in East Africa?


In particular, it was noted that the NATO "partners" in the course of the exercise worked on the conduct of mortar fire. According to some information, the control of the course of the exercises and the adjustment of the mortar fire were carried out using American unmanned aerial vehicles.




Recall that on New Year's Eve 2018 in Syria, a mortar bombardment of the Russian base Hmeymim was carried out, as well as the first attack using UAVs.

For reference: Djibouti - a state in the Horn of Africa, which has access to the Gulf of Aden. It borders with Eritrea, Somalia and Ethiopia. Former French colony. The population is less than 1 million people. About 19% of the economy (2016 year) accounts for trade with China. About 7% - from the USA.

    In a possible battle between an eagle and a dragon, the bear should be a spectator .... to abstain, so to speak.

        I feel that they will soon drive the "exceptional" around the world .. Especially if Russia and China are truly friends! And the west is terribly afraid of it ... Their temporary hegemony based on the robbery and murder of the weak countries of the world is ending! It's time for gentlemen to pay for everything ..
        Let China begin to "pinch" the American eagle, Russia will support many countries of the world too.!

                But if the authorities squint, then why not pull them away? Can't the patriot express dissatisfaction with what is happening? Indeed, in any family both good and bad happen. And the family never ceases to be less loved. And Stalin cleaned the ranks of the Communists , only to the benefit of the Motherland.
                Whatever happens, no matter how bad it would be, I believe in the best.

          Meehan, you are a dreamer or an exceptional talented person. : “I feel that soon the“ exceptional ”people around the world will be driven”, such a statement reminded me: “we will show you Kuzkin’s mother,” remember who said that? He also promised communism in 1980.
          And now the most important thing: can you read the mind of a dragon? I personally doubt that this is possible. Remember when the Americans bombed Yugoslavia and mistakenly shanadarahara at the Chinese Embassy and how they reacted? "The Great Helmsman" promised the Americans in baskets to deliver to the ocean. They say there are so many that they can pack all Americans in baskets and drown them in the ocean. But probably there are no baskets or the Dragon has other plans

            Americans very politely apologized and even paid compensation. Only this was not trumpeted at every corner. Americans are very scary and fighting, against the natives. And so they get scared if there is a possibility that something will fall on them

        To "there to revive the lost influence", money is needed, and not small. And just with this product in Russia is tense, and to compete with the USA and China in Africa is unrealistic.

      And what is the point of Russia to get into this mess? Djibouti is like a herring in a bank. Our military is not in Djibouti, they are higher in Sudan. There (or rather, nearby) and the Turks decided to settle.

      IMHO the right decision)

      I absolutely agree with this position. True, I thought about one thing. States are often blamed for double standards and mercantile spirit, in the war with the wrong hands. For example, the same late entry into World War II. But the proposal to do the same to Russia does not cause rejection. Output? Yes, there is no particular conclusion, we are all just good.

      The worst nightmare of Americans is the military alliance of China and Russia. So they are trying by any means to divide, disconnect us, sometimes clothed their efforts in beautiful wrappers of Eastern philosophy. And we, nodding like pigs, and forget about our Russian wisdom: the broom is easy to break, dividing it into separate twigs.

    They are there at least a couple of countries, at least, set against each other, because in Africa it is easy - everyone is ready to fight with any of their neighbors! And the countries will choose those where Chinese expansion is very strong in order to expel the Chinese to begin with from these countries. And then from the continent. So, if the Chinese resist, then over time they themselves will be able to survive the United States from Africa.

      . Over time, it will be so. China creates free trade zones with more than 20 countries (in fact, these are structures parallel to the WTO). In addition, it issues loans on a bilateral basis on a scale larger than the IMF (and clearly competing with it). He ties any assistance to the countries of Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America with strict requirements for the purchase of exclusively Chinese goods.

      I don’t know how the markets are, but the territory is divided exactly. I mean, according to the North American scenario ... With the destruction of local tribes (disease, famine, war) and the further seizure of land. Everything will start from military bases, then the purchase (construction) of enterprises , deposits of infrastructure facilities ... They will build camps for personnel servicing these facilities. Then military bases to protect personnel, airfields and ports for rotation and those for export and import of products ... And you will not have time to look around, and the floor of China has already moved to Africa ...
      This is a project for many years. This is a project for the strong. The strong have always conquered the weak. The law of nature.

They poisoned the infected blankets and just killed (for the sake of democracy) ... But there is a lot of land there. If it weren’t Russian nuclear weapons and warlike temper would have long been cut out for the same reason.

    At that time from the Chinese there could only be Kalashnikovs of the Chinese assembly ..

    In addition to the Kalashnikovs with the inscription Made in China, there were advisers from this same Made in China. In those years, very often in the press such information passed that they help the opponents of "people's power". At one time there was a very interesting weekly, called "Abroad." So there such publications were quite frequent

      Perhaps this will happen in relation to the United States. They will play out what North Korea will cover with their missiles in three years. So it is with Ukraine. Distribute weapons and show the right, left and other sectors where to lead Ukraine further. Crimea could, Donbass and Lugansk also could.
