It became known about the scale of the operation to withdraw US troops from Somalia

32

It became known about the scale of the US Army's logistics operations in the African state of Somalia. This operation is carried out on the personal order of the current US President Donald Trump on the need to withdraw the American contingent from Somalia by the end of 2020.


At the same time, the opinions of American military experts were divided. Some believe that the urgent withdrawal of US troops from Somalia is "an excellent exercise in the ability to transfer troops in a short time." Others believe that Trump "arranges time pressure for the contingent in Somalia, which will lead to unpredictable consequences."

Today it is known that American activity in eastern Africa has grown significantly. In particular, the American media are showing satellite images from the Lemonier base in Djibouti, where, as previously reported, "some American servicemen will be delivered after the withdrawal from Somalia." Also, through Lemonnier, the Americans are going to return part of their "Somali" contingent directly to the United States.


Recall that a Chinese military base is also located in Djibouti.

Information portal The Drive writes that in addition to a significant increase in the number of US military aircraft in Djibouti, there is an increase in US naval activity off the coast of Somalia.


So, in the messages it is said about the appearance of the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier of the US Navy, as well as the universal amphibious assault ship USS Makin Island of the Wasp class. Also, the Americans "drove" to the east coast of Africa the expeditionary floating naval base USS Hershel "Woody" Williams with a displacement of about 78 thousand tons. All these ships are planned to be used for the withdrawal of the American contingent and military equipment.

The American military command reports that military transport aircraft and converters are used to withdraw the contingent from Somalia.

At the same time, according to official data, no more than 2020 American troops remained in Somalia in November 650. The scale of the logistic operation gives reason to say that the United States was hiding the real scale of its military presence in this state.

American troops explained their presence in Somalia by anti-terrorist activities in the format of the Octave Quartz mission. However, over the years of the US military presence in this country, the situation has not normalized, to put it mildly. Somalia, as a single state, actually does not exist - the territory is divided between clans and groups, including the banned in the Russian Federation "Al-Qaeda". Therefore, who else besides 650 of its military personnel can be evacuated from Somalia by the United States is an open question.

    The Americans are "working" very effectively to restore order. Exemplary.

      The Somalis, I suppose, still remember how well they lived when they were friends with the USSR.

        No matter how now our leader does not sweat to show the world his "influence" - he will also begin to climb into Somalia. He divided his country into clans, set the standard of living almost Somali, so with this experience Somalia can finally be his native village.

              I have not been to Somalia itself; I have passed this pirate area on a ship more than once. But he was in neighboring African countries, with significantly and not very better living conditions. I had enough impressions. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about.

      For 650 people drove the aircraft carrier and the UDC? It would be better to drive a convoy of trucks with a field kitchen ... and nothing, drive to Djibouti.
      As for Somalia, you just have to lag behind them - there is the Middle Ages, let them figure it out. Moreover, the evolution of man was uneven on Earth, for example, in Samoli or there in Afghanistan, even before modern man, they have not evolved, there are failures in the Russian Federation.

          Do not be shy, are the people poor there too? And the main cultural idol Khabib? And the terrorist who cut off the head of the teacher at school is also buried with honors? No.

            Yes, it is poor. Have you looked at the statistics on the unemployed? And the number of applications for free food and so on?
            Who is Khabib - I don't know, you know better.
            In the United States, many criminals are buried with honors. For example, a drug addict robber was recently buried in a golden coffin. But the actions of Anzorov you mentioned were recognized by Russia as unacceptable. Please read the Kremlin's official statements on this matter. Or the Minister of Information and Press of Chechnya, who said the same thing. Or even Kadyrov, who condemned the attack.

                It became known about the scale of the operation to withdraw US troops from Somalia

                What's the use of talking about the scale, if a really large-scale exodus, the flight of the US Army and collaborators, could be observed already 45 years ago? And over this historical period, no one gave them a real blow in the face.

                    The Fall of the Black Hawk? So it was only a detail, but in Vietnam the United States got it so that such Mogadishu can be stored in thousands and thousands.
                    Among other things, in the film, not everything is depicted as it really was.

                    Here is a video from documentary sources, more or less revealing the course of the failed operation in Mogadishu.

                      or the fact that MI24 survived hundreds of MANPADS hits while all sorts of them ... well, very cardboard. now the type of warhead and the mass and accuracy of hitting are different ... the helicopters are much thinner than the airborne assault with wings.

    And really good. Only they have 2 tasks:

    1. Information cover, that is, shameless lies about some kind of restoration of order, etc. (democracy, human rights ...)
    He threw a couple of trucks with dry rations and first-aid kits into the territory a year. Trumpeted about good deeds and norms.

    2. Maintaining a state of chaos in an occupied territory with one simple goal - to be the determining force in this territory. Why some kind of politeness, some local strong politicians, national identity, self-determination (God forbid) to any natives?
    From this one hemorrhoids to the light elves.
    It is much easier to keep a thump among a bunch of small local gangs - a minimum of diplomacy and other philanthropic snot. And it is much more profitable - to trade / cover with weapons, drugs, for example. And a lot more stuff - solid nyaki, in general :)

    Therefore, who else besides its 650 military personnel can be evacuated from Somalia by the United States is an open question.


    I'll tell you. They will fill the holds with blacks and take them to the USA. They will sell it there. Beat off expenses. Hands, as they say, remember.

    as of November 2020, no more than 650 American troops remained.
    And this required the use of the fleet and aviation? Or there were 650 more units for 300 people. used technology? The Americans are dark about something.
    who else besides 650 of its military personnel can be evacuated from Somalia by the United States
    Probably the leaders of terrorist groups and their entourage. I think that Russian intelligence will answer this question.
