I'm always amazed when I go to mainland China, just how much Africa is in the news.
Yeah - Of course - I might have a bit of personal vested interest in the continent...
Yes indeed!

You said INVADE. Maybe you missed that.

You're right. I absolutely did.

And we had a bunch of UN/NATO peacekeepers on the ground in the Balkans.

The only maybe example you could use to disprove my point would be Task Force Ranger in Somalia.

So again, for the third time, why have we cared so much about it in other places but barely have lifted a finger in Africa?

Do remember we just recently even made a geographic combatant command in reference to Africa.
