American military operation takes place in Somalia

30
Pentagon’s press secretary, Rear Admiral John Kirby, said that a military operation by the US military was conducted in Somalia. According to him, its results are still being evaluated, and in the near future the media will receive relevant information.



INTERFAX.RU notes that the publication of The Washington Post has published information that in the area of ​​the port of Barawe, where the Islamists base is located, American drones launched several rockets.

It is also worth noting that at the beginning of this year, the newspaper The Huffington Post reported that American advisers have been working in Somalia since 2007, who prepare and advise local military. It was also noted that Washington will continue to support the Somali authorities in connection with the activation of the Islamist group Al-Shabab.

In January, Colonel Tom Davis, representative of the African Command of the US Armed Forces, also confirmed the data on sending military advisers to Somalia. Then the US authorities said that there are no more than 5 people in the country.

This is the first confirmed case of sending military specialists to Somalia over the past 20 years after 1993 US troops died in an 18 year during an operation in Mogadishu.

      "American Operation ...", "American Operation" is a well-known dish.
      ... since 2007, American advisers have been working in Somalia to train and advise local military personnel.

      ... another drain?
      And again we will read after - "NATO admitted the defeat of the junta" - even boring like that. lol

      Well, if they do not calm down:

      Russia will change military doctrine in connection with the emergence of new threats

        In general, now we need to look after Africa - interesting things are happening there, but no one is paying attention - the Chinese are now pumping a lot of money there - apparently they lick up resources - after all, it’s easier to negotiate with naked blacks than with the Russian Federation, especially since the cost of production in Africa an order of magnitude lower.

        In Mogadishu, the Americans fell into the anusai, oddly enough for the whole battle, one photo was taken where the rangers shelter from shelling. the funny thing is that according to official Washington data, the loss of US peace missions was 18 people and 80 injured, but the most interesting 2000 !!! militants were destroyed. The target of Idid's trap has failed. Aidid reported 315 dead Somalis where the bulk were demonstrators in which the marines opened fire without hesitation. Losses of Peaceful delegations featured in the movie The Fall of the Black Hawk.

      Comrad You just do not laugh out loud, but:

      ...Moscow. 2 September. INTERFAX.RU - The CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter, assigned to the 22th US Marine Expeditionary Force, crashed into the waters of the Gulf of Aden while trying to board the ship. This was reported in a press release by the US Navy.

      There were 17 infantrymen and eight sailors on board the helicopter, all of them rescued. Several people were slightly injured.


      They write that he flew from the exercises, but we know what the Americans’s exercises near Somalia went. wink

    Chu, but I thought that the cool rangers did something there. And here only drones started up. This is what can not be taken away from mattresses, because it is a good memory for those places where balls were pinched to them. The second time they don’t particularly go there, or very carefully. I am glad that there are more and more such places on earth.

    all "for" the war .. I do not think that they will change their point of view .. There is no desire to gloat .. But I want to say. We will extinguish "them" .. What's next? I don’t think there is an answer .. Whatever one may say, but it is necessary to negotiate .. Nobody will win.
