    Old news. The military base in Africa is over and done with. It ain't happening. Let me speed up your rate of posting articles on this issue. I'll post the latest three articles. Hold on for a minute.

    The US military bases were primarily targeted for the Gulf of Guinea (Nigeria, Angola area) where all the oil was at. But the nations in that region were not having it. So, event one. Could these nations muster enough internal politics to stop the bases?

    Well, as we now have it, these nations did pull it off. Their resistance poured cold water on the primary motivation for setting up military bases in Africa. America got the wind that they were not wanted in Africa.

    Good for them. They need to make sure that U.S. military and any other countrie's doesn't try to set up shop in their land.
