The U.S. army is to provide counter-insurgency training to the Nigerian army. This is probably linked to the increasingly deadly attacks by Boko Haram.

    1. I doubt very much that US troops would be deployed against Boko Haram. They have their hands full in Iraq and Afghanistan and don’t need another headache. Nigeria is not likely to let foreign troops operate in its territory anyway.

    2. Oh is very bad for those people who is comment wrongly again deployed of nited state army to Nigeria we are in need of them bcoz they are the only who can make the peace up in Nigeria

  3. RECOMMENDATIONS: YOU MUST FOCUS ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS HERE. THIS DOCUMENT WAS WRITTEN WAY BACK IN 1978 AND CONTRAST THAT WITH THE STANDING UP OF THE US MILITARY’S AFRICOM. BY THE WAY GO TO AFRICOM’S HOME PAGE WEBSITE(http://www.africom.mil/) AND TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE OUTFITS PATCH(INSIGNIA) AND TELL ME WHAT IS SAYS. IT SAYS UNITED STATES AFRICA COMMAND. THAT IS RIGHT,UNITED STATES AFRICA COMMAND. THIS IS A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME.
    LASTLY, SOME PROMINENT NIGERIA JOURNALIST REFERENCED A LINK I POSTED HERE AND WROTE AN EXPANSIVE ARTICLE ON IT. YOU CAN READ IT HERE:http://allafrica.com/stories/201112070708.html

    NOW TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE 1978 DOCUMENT.

    RECOMMENDATIONS

    In weighing the range of U.S. interests in Black Africa, basic recommendations arranged without intent to imply priority are:

    2. Special clandestine operations should be launched by the CIA to generate mistrust and hostility in American and world opinion against joint activity of the two forces, and to cause division among Black African radical national groups and their leaders.

    3. U.S. embassies to Black African countries specially interested in southern Africa must be highly circumspect in view of the activity of certain political circles and influential individuals opposing the objectives and methods of U.S. policy toward South Africa. It must be kept in mind that the failure of U.S. strategy in South Africa would adversely affect American standing throughout the world. In addition, this would mean a significant diminution of U.S. influence in Africa and the emergence of new difficulties in our internal situation due to worsening economic prospects.

    4. The FBI should mount surveillance operations against Black African representatives and collect sensitive information on those, especially at the U.N., who oppose U.S. policy toward South Africa. The information should include facts on their links with the leaders of the Black movement in the United States, thus making possible at least partial neutralization of the adverse effects of their activity.
