Meanwhile in Africa

Apparently we are at war in Niger? Who knew?

The Russians apparently want you to read about it.

Anyway here's a hopefully un-amplified version.

A joint patrol of U.S. and Niger troops came under attack in southwest Niger on Wednesday, a spokesman for U.S. Africa Command confirmed after Radio France International (RFI) reported a lethal ambush near the Niger/Mali border.

“We can confirm reports that a joint U.S. and Nigerien patrol came under hostile fire in southwest Niger,” said a spokesman for U.S. Africa Command. He did not comment on RFI’s report that several U.S. soldiers had died in the attack.,

Ahh The Company is #4 on google below the sponsored, makes sense.

But probably a total coincidence. I'm almost sure.

1 i recall several years ago that Pres. Obama sent
half of all our Special Forces to various bits of
Africa. at the time i said he was trying to infect
them all with malaria so they'd be forced into
early retirement.

2 there are currently about 80000 in special forces
Even in an all out war the rule of thumb in force deploymentis 1/3 over 1/3 training and 1/3 reserve
