Biden Starting Another War?


Some things in this world just can’t be helped…

Joe Biden is chief among those things, but in that long list are other items like Afghanistan, Somalia, and much of the Middle East.

No amount of nation building, ‘democracy’, or economic stimulus is going to help a war-torn country like Somalia, and even if it could, it is no business of ours.

In 1992 George Bush committed to sending U.S. troops to the region in order to distribute humanitarian aid to the East African nation torn apart by a bloody civil war…

This mission eventually morphed, unsurprisingly, into a full blown nation building mission, buttressed by special ops forces sent into Mogadishu by former President Bill Clinton.

The special ops team had a clear mission: arrest top commanders of the warlord Mohamed Farrah Hassan Aidid—the man who pushed communist forces out of Somalia in the early 1990s.

What occurred next has been the topic of Hollywood blockbusters and documentaries ever since…

Black Hawk Down captured the disaster of the 1993 military mission in Somalia, and was a clear reiteration of a lesson that our ‘leaders’ have not yet understood: asymmetric warfare works. 

Our military is the greatest in the world, but therein lies the problem…

A behemoth like the U.S. military is ineffective at fighting non-uniformed, gorilla style forces—every organized military is. How does one fight that which is nebulous and undefined?

Vietnam, Afghanistan, Somalia, and the entire ‘war on terror’ are all evidence of this.

Understanding this deep wisdom, and understanding the need for a more isolationist U.S. foreign policy, President Trump withdrew all U.S. forces from Somalia in 2020.

Now, Joe Biden has taken yet another step in the wrong direction by announcing a U.S. troop redeployment to the region…

Biden’s announcement comes just 1 day after Somalia elected Hassan Sheikh Mohamud as President, as Jordan Schachtel points out: Surely the two events cannot be related, can they?

Here’s what we currently know:

“President Biden has approved a request from the Secretary of Defense to reestablish a persistent U.S. military presence in Somalia to enable a more effective fight against al Shabaab,” a senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said.


The New York Times, an outlet adept at manufacturing consent for the military industrial state, had more:

Mr. Biden signed off on the proposal by Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III in early May, officials said. In a statement, Adrienne Watson, the National Security Council spokeswoman, acknowledged the move, saying it would enable “a more effective fight against Al Shabab.”

“The decision to reintroduce a persistent presence was made to maximize the safety and effectiveness of our forces and enable them to provide more efficient support to our partners,” she said.
