Nearly a week ago, Al-Shabaab stormed a military base used by Kenyan and US forces and murdered 3 Americans. So far, nothing really from DC on this nor were any drone strikes against their leaders probably because there’s no oil there, I’m guessing. Furthermore, there was apparently no intelligence telling anyone that the attack was imminent and, of course, warmongers like Lindsey Graham and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are silent since there is nothing to gain. Still, 3 Americans are dead.
A statement was issued by AFRICOM Commander-U.S. Army General Stephen Townsend:
Alongside our African and international partners, we will pursue those responsible for this attack and al-Shabaab who seeks to harm Americans and U.S. interests. We remain committed to preventing al-Shabaab from maintaining a safe haven to plan deadly attacks against the U.S. homeland, East African and international partners.
Muslims News out of the UK reports:
NAIROBI, Kenya (AA): The United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) confirmed Sunday that a U.S. service member and two Defense Department contractors were killed when al-Shabaab militants stormed a military base used by Kenyan and U.S. forces in Lamu county near Kenya’s border with Somalia.
“During an attack by al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda group in East Africa, earlier today, one (1) U.S. service member and two (2) Department of Defense contractors were killed at a Kenya Defense Force Military Base in Manda Bay, Kenya,” AFRICOM said in a statement.
The U.S. said two Defense Department members were also wounded and that they are currently in stable condition and being evacuated.
AFRICOM Commander U.S. Army General Stephen Townsend said the names of the dead and wounded are being withheld until their next of kin are notified.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of our teammates who lost their lives today,” Townsend said in a news release.
“Alongside our African and international partners, we will pursue those responsible for this attack and al-Shabaab who seeks to harm Americans and U.S. interests. We remain committed to preventing al-Shabaab from maintaining a safe haven to plan deadly attacks against the U.S. homeland, East African and international partners”.
The pre-dawn attack involved indirect and small arms fire.
Kenyan defense forces announced they had successfully repulsed the attack, killing four militants.
AFRICOM confirmed that there was damage to infrastructure and other equipment, noting that reports indicated that six contractor-operated civilian aircraft were damaged to some degree…..
Again, no talk of targeting numerous sites, no drone strikes and apparently no intel warning President Trump of the attack.
Author Robert Spencer writes, “The problem is that there are certain ‘international partners’ that, instead of helping, they are facilitating the jihad by ushering in jihadists through suicidal immigration policies, while pretending that those who have justifiable concerns are anti-immigrant and xenophobic. Globalist leaders have abandoned sensible immigration policies. Their agenda should be obvious by now.”
He adds, “On the same day that Al-Shabaab murdered 3 Americans, Kenyan police also arrested three jihadists who tried to storm a British army training camp in the Kenyan county of Laikipia. A British Army spokesperson tried to minimize the threat by stating that ‘the force did not believe there was a direct threat to UK personnel or assets.’ But clearly the jihadists were not trying to break in to have tea. Of course, there was a threat to UK personnel.”
The bizarre nature and the coincidences regarding how the US has planned for decades to start a war with Iran and ultimately a high ranking general was drones by the US in response to zero deaths of Americans, but somehow, actual deaths of Americans occur on a military base in Kenya and basically nothing.
I’m sorry, I just can’t trust what I’m being told about Iran, and I wonder, is anyone asking the question, what are we doing in Kenya? What are we really doing in the Middle East?
I can tell you this much, we are not bringing about peace, and no, I don’t support Iran or Kenya or Islam for that matter, as anyone who has ever heard me or read my writings, but I don’t support American imperialism and the empire she has created around the world either. I support America. I think it’s time Americans do the same.
