4/9/21 Danny Sjursen on AFRICOM’s Latest Adventure in Mozambique

Danny Sjursen talks about the absurdity of the recent announcement that America is sending special forces troops to Mozambique, a country that he says has basically no strategic relevance to the United States whatsoever. Those who argue that this is only a dozen operatives who will stay less than two months, he says, don’t understand the way the U.S. military works. These operations always entail a vast number of support personnel and infrastructure, and they always find a way of exceeding their schedules. This is just the latest move in “The Great Game” that America plays for global dominance.
