Washington’s “Long War” Against Africa

The US bombing of Libya in support of rebel clients in the spring of 2011

is part and parcel of a sustained policy of military intervention in Africa since at least the mid 1950’s.

According to a US Congressional Research Service Study [1] published in November 2010,

Washington has dispatched anywhere between hundreds and several thousand combat troops,

dozens of fighter planes and warships to buttress client dictatorships or to unseat adversarial regimes

in dozens of countries,

almost on a yearly basis.

The record shows the US armed forces intervened 46 times prior to the current Libyan wars.

The countries suffering one or more US military intervention include the Congo,

Zaire,

Libya,

Chad,

Sierra Leone,

Somalia,

Rwanda,

Liberia,

Central African Republic,

Gabon,

Guinea-Bissau,

Kenya,

Tanzania,

Sudan,

Ivory Coast,

Ethiopia,

Djibouti

and Eritrea.
