Nigeria, it’s about oil, not terrorists.

Nigeria is the largest producer of oil in Africa.  In 1970 Nigeria became a member OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries).  Since about 2012 the United States reportedly reduced the amount of oil it was buying from Nigeria, yet increased military activities in the central African country, in the name of fighting terrorism.

British empire exploration for oil in Nigeria began in 1907, yet drilling didn’t start until 1951, with oil finally being discovered in 1953.  Nigeria was a colony of the British empire until 1960.

Since then the United States and the British empire (Commonwealth of Nations) covertly vied for control of so-called independent oil rich Nigeria by causing False Flag civil wars and now terrorism.  During the 1960s, U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk even denied the U.S. was involved in such covert ops: “America is not in a position to take action as Nigeria is an area under British influence.”

By the 1980s, despite record level oil revenues Nigeria was deep into debt, mainly to the U.S. based International Monetary Fund (IMF).  Almost half of the Nigerian government’s revenues were going to the IMF!  The economic situation for the working class was made worse due to the implementation of the IMF’s Structural Adjustment Program.

In the 1990s new civil wars began, but this time they were tied directly to foreign oil companies (including Chevron, Exxon-Mobil and Texaco).

In 2013, the Netherlands ruled that its own oil company, Royal Dutch Shell (co-owned by the British empire), was responsible for the massive pollution of the Niger Delta.

Despite the current civil violence Nigeria is the world’s fifth largest producer of oil.  Its main buyer is the United States, because most of its oil is the type consumed by U.S. industries (known as ‘light’, ‘sweet’).

“To say this is a typical deployment would be an under statement. This unit didn’t exist a year ago, not only is it new to Kentucky, it’s new to the Army’s force structure.”-Lieutenant Colonel Tom Roach

“National Guardsmen make up 39% of the operational force. In this day and age, we must rely heavily on one other to meet the demands in such a complex global environment. This unit is a testament of the increased responsibility of the Kentucky National Guard and our ability to answer the call to defend our country.”-Brigadier General Scott Campbell

“Fully trained and full of conviction, the Costa Rican Coast Guard will return to their country prepared and ready to play a transformational role protecting its waters and safeguarding Costa Rica territory from a scourge of drug trafficking, human trafficking, illegal fishing and other illicit activities.”-Sharon Day, U.S. ambassador to Costa Rica

Costa Rican Coast Guard accepts the gift of two patrol boats in Baltimore, Maryland, 13FEB2018

The U.S. Coast Guard gave (free of charge) the Costa Rican navy two 33.5 meters (110 feet) long patrol boats.  Apparently ‘small gifts’ were also exchanged at the ceremony as the U.S. Coast Guard logged accounting records of such gifts.

The U.S. ambassador to Costa Rica, Sharon Day, claims the gift of $18-million USD worth of Island Class patrol boats to the central American country is going to have a ‘global impact’ in the new war on drugs.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Costa Rica’s public security minister claims there is an expected “cocaine tsunami” coming our way!

This donation of Island Class patrol boats is not the first.  In the recent past Pakistan and Georgia also got two each of the U.S. taxpayer funded Coast Guard cutters.

Rear Admiral Michael J. Haycock explained that if they can’t sell decommissioned boats then they just give them away, because, he claims, scrapping them would actually cost more!

Idaho Militia turns information into lethal weapon!

“Information is a weapon the brigade yields. We’re training Soldiers on their mission command weapons systems. We’re making information more lethal.”-Chief Warrant-3 Jerred Edgar, 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team

At the OTA (Orchard Training Area, aka Orchard Combat Training Center), February 2018

Idaho’s Army National Guard signal personnel spent the early part of February learning how to kill using information.  Actually, the 116th Cavalry Brigade (Snake River) has signal corps personnel spread across four northwestern states, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Oregon.

Typically a “Signal Corps develops, tests, provides, and manages communications and information systems”, but this year the Idaho based Snake River militia decided to weaponize the information they gather in an exercise they called Signal Gunnery: “We wanted to create a process that trains crews in a manner similar to tank gunnery to create shared understanding with commanders.”-CW3 Jerred Edgar

Can you see me now?

The week long Signal Gunnery brought at least 60 personnel from four states together at Orchard Training Area, south of Boise.  It’s hoped this weaponizing-info-exercise becomes a annual event.

Idaho Army National Guard’s Regional Training Site–Maintenance Ordnance Training Battalion is big and bad and getting bigger and badder!

During a November 2017 comprehensive accreditation inspection the Idaho training facility scored an overall 99.2%, getting 100% in five of the seven categories.

The facility is used by hundreds of Guard and U.S. Army personnel each year.  Plans are to expand the training site by 2022,  doubling student enrollment to about 850.

According to military reports the expansion of Idaho’s Maintenance Ordnance Training Battalion, including the creation of additional training battalions, could make it an equal to the U.S. Army’s Fort Benning, Georgia!

Gun Bans = Oil Wars: Anti-gun DR Congo descends into hell!

06FEB2018 (10:48 UTC-07 Tango 06)  17 Bahman 1396/20 Jumada l-Ula 1439/21 Ren-Yin 4715

In the past 24 hours violence seemingly has escalated in the pro-U.S.-European oil rich and anti-gun country of ‘Democratic’ Republic of Congo (DR Congo, not to be confused with Republic of Congo).  In one case, news reports of stabbings by knife wielding rebels inside hospitals.

To show you that even Iran is anti-gun, the government run media outlet PressTV actually described the hospital slashers as “gunmen” (Gunmen stab 12 hospitalized patients in DR Congo), even though there are (so far) no news media reports describing the attackers as being armed with guns!

The official government of DR Congo bans the private ownership of guns.  The gun laws of DR Congo are described by international anti-gun organizations as “restrictive”.  To show you how anti-gun the United States government truly is, in 2013 the fake news, I mean propaganda (oh wait, propaganda is the original Fake News) Voice of America reported that rebel groups are conducting anti-anti-gun operations “forcing” families, in the areas under rebel control, to own at least one gun!

The violence in DR Congo got worse after an Israeli oil tycoon (Dan Gertler) discovered massive amounts of oil in the central African country, in 2014.  A similar amount of oil was discovered in neighboring Uganda.  The so called rebels who conducted the hospital knife attack in DR Congo are assumed to be from Uganda, and United Nations peacekeepers in DR Congo believe the violence that has taken place since the discovery of oil is not about civil war, but control of the oil in both DR Congo and Uganda.  ‘Western’ oil companies want to build an oil pipeline from Uganda, through DR Congo, to the Atlantic Ocean.

The recent FitBit fiasco, involving dumb U.S. military personnel allowing a silly-vilian designed electronic device to publicly track their movements, reveals slight U.S. military ops along the Atlantic coastline of Africa, but more U.S. activity is seen on the Indian Ocean side, including in DR Congo’s violent neighbor Uganda.
