The U.S. Embassy in Somalia has announced that the United States will build five new military bases for the Somalia National Army Danab Brigade.

In a statement, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Molly Phee stated the Somalia National Army is “a centerpiece of our ongoing security cooperation with Somalia.”

Phee continued that the new bases “reflects our recognition of the success of our joint efforts to build a capable, professional, and accountable force.”

In total, the new bases will cost over $100 million.

Obviously we shouldn't be spending money on this shite. But what kind of bullshite bases cost $20 mil a piece?

I guess if you call straw huts and some conex buildings a base. Brown & Root ain't building shite for $20 million.

There is a Somali national army? I though they have been a failed state for 30+ years.

this is the escalation of the fight with Houthis/Iran. The 100 mil will be used for preliminary engr. and site survey. The state dept will fund the 50 billion to build runways, fuel storage and base facilities. Located across the Red Sea from Yemen , this is a much needed long term response point. The current navy approach is not sustainable

Exactly. You can’t even build runways with that bullshite money. This is money for some bullshite LLC some congressmen’s kids created. They will mark some location on the map, grade a dirt runway, and build some shed. Then pass more money with the next continuing resolution to keep funding the same bullshite contracts. Round and round we go.

Could probably build a nice chunk of border wall with that.

I just finished a book about a guy on safari in Africa in the 1950s. He quoted his professional hunter as saying he refused to have a Somali on his crew. He said he never met one he could trust, who wouldn't lie, or who wouldn't stab you at the first opportunity.

And so this is what the ants of the great US ant farm work their lives to fund???

And yep…. No outrage by Americans. We’re so well trained to take it.

Somalia is a failed state. What a fricking joke. Our government is so evil.

I really believe we have no hope for our nation unless we get lucky and the right size meteor lands in the middle of DC - on a government workday.
