US Officials Say ISIS a ‘Global Threat,’ But Focus on Africa

US officials are continuing to emphasize that ISIS poses a “global threat,” even though it lost all its territory in Syria and Iraq. While that continues the narrative of an open-ended fight across the planet, officials are also clear the focus right now is on Africa.

It’s not clear exactly why ISIS is being chosen as the immediate focus for US anti-ISIS operations, with so much of a deal being made previously of the group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but the US is hoping to get global support for the Africa fight.

US officials are emphasizing the substantial number of ISIS-affiliated factions inside Africa in their narrative, though of course, not all ISIS are created equal, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Africa.

The more quickly you can get your head around that "bit", the sooner the clarity will come about why the US government is requesting/demanding an international "response" to "the ISIS threat".

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in origin, history keeps proving this true.

What the US and its Western powers have been doing, very concretely ever since 2001, is destabilise countries with tremendous resources (oil, natural gas, gold, platinum, molybdenum, etc.), regime change their governments; expropriating resources to which it has no moral right; and insuring that these resources are only sold for the US dollar.

Rinse; wipe; repeat.

Anyone who cannot see this pattern, in the wars of conquest against Iraq; Afghanistan; Libya; Yemen; and various other Middle East and African countries, has not been paying attention.

And when you query bing.com, about Africa's riches, here is the answer you get:
The Natural Resources of Africa, and the article goes on to state:

"Which Continent Is The Richest In Natural Resources?

Oil. It is estimated that 12% of the oil produced in the world comes from Africa.
Precious Metals. Africa has the richest reserves of precious metals such as gold, cobalt,...
Timber. Timber is an essential resource in the construction industry and furniture making.

So is it any wonder that the US is "pushing" the alleged "ISIS threat, pertaining to Africa, as a reason to invade it, and do what it has done to so many other countries around the world?!?

No wonder at all.

It is very, painfully, uncomfortable to recognise that one's government, has consistently committed war crimes, against the people with the gall who happen to live over, or adjacent to, the resources the US government wants to control; but that is the stark reality of 21st century America.
