Besides the troop surge to Iraq (remember we are still fighting a war in Afg) this administration is surging yet again to Somalia. Despite the same ol cliché of the calling them “advisors” that doesn’t meant people don’t shoot at them. How is it we continue to crush our military numbers (strength) and yet the deployments to foreign countries all of sudden begins to increase again? Sooner or later something is going to give….. Time for a C-Gar!
An Obama administration official told Reuters there are approximately 120 U.S. troops on the ground in Somalia serving as trainers and advisers. The troops are “not involved in combat,” the official said.
"The Pentagon announced in January that it sent a handful of advisers in 2013 to Somalia, but this is the first detailed public acknowledgment that troops have been there for much longer, according to Reuters. The U.S. is expanding its presence as the African Union and the Somalian government are increasing their campaign against al Shabaab, which has waged a bloody battle to impose Islamic law in the country for the past seven years"
