Secret US Military Base Discovered In Southern Libya » The Event Chronicle

By Jason Ditz

The United States has been discovered to have established a military base in al-Wigh, an oasis in southernmost Libya, was Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documentation going back as far as 2015 on its establishment and operation.

This is significant because the base’s existence was never announced to the public, and AFRICOM documents still don’t reveal the exact status and size fo the base. It is officially a “non-permanent” base, which appears to be how they managed to keep it a secret.

This appears to have been one of the “lilypad” bases that AFRICOM leaders have been talking about wanting to set up across Africa, giving the US military presence in several countries across the continent allowing them to carry out strikes anywhere on a whim.

This is important because President Trump has insisted that the US doesn’t have any business in Libya, and that he doesn’t see a role in the country in the long term. It’s not clear if he was informed about the base either.

‘Defeat ISIS and go home’: Trump rejects US role in Libya nation-building — RT America

President Donald Trump does not see a US role in helping its European allies build a government in Libya. Instead, he told reporters, he wants to defeat Islamic State, after which the US can focus on domestic issues.

Speaking to reporters in Washington, DC on Thursday, following a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Trump contradicted his guest’s assessment that the US role in stabilizing Libya would be critical, arguing the US has “enough roles… everywhere.”

“I do not see a role in Libya,” Trump said. “I do see a role in getting rid of ISIS. We’re being very effective in that regard.”

“We are effectively ridding the world of ISIS. I see that as the primary role, and that’s what we’re going to do – whether it’s in Iraq, or in Libya, or anywhere else.  And that role will come to an end at a certain point, and we’ll be able to go back home and rebuild our country, which is what I want to do,” Trump concluded.

Gentiloni had just finished making a case for US involvement in stabilizing Libya by helping the internationally recognized government in Tripoli establish control over the country’s entire territory.

“We need a stable and unified Libya,” the Italian PM said, noting that US Special Forces had taken part in defeating Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the port city of Sirte, but that solving the problem of migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Italy and beyond would require nation-building. “The US role in this is critical.”

Trump’s rejection of that role is at odds with his recent actions – launching a missile strike in Syria, escalating tensions with North Korea, and authorizing a review of the nuclear deal with Iran – but in line with his promise during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“We’re getting out of the nation-building business,” Trump announced on April 27 of last year, describing his foreign policy as “America first.”

Libya collapsed into chaos and anarchy in 2011, after the Obama administration backed a rebellion in Benghazi against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, the country’s leader since 1969. Using UN Security Council resolution 1973, authorizing a no-fly zone in the north of the country, NATO began air strikes in support of the rebels. In October 2011, one such strike hit a convoy carrying Gaddafi, who was then captured and killed by the rebels.

As Libya collapsed, neighboring countries of Tunisia, Egypt and Mali had to deal with a surge in terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, human traffickers exploited tens of thousands of African migrants, who try to reach Italian shores in rickety boats. In a recent report, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) spoke of slave markets in the south of Libya, where Africans are traded for as little as $200.

First Details on New Anti-Terror Plan: US Needs Allies as It Goes Global

BY ANDREI AKULOV  //  STRATEGIC-CULTURE.ORG

Putting together the bits of information already available from various sources provides some indication of what the new US anti-terror strategy is about.

The initial draft of the review is now complete. The US Defense Department presented a tentative plan (strategy review) «to rapidly defeat» the Islamic State (IS) terror group to the president’s national security team on February 27. The paper is more of a general outline of the options currently available than a detailed, step-by-step strategy for achieving the final victory. Defense Secretary James Mattis described the report as «a framework for a broader discussion» of a strategy to be developed over time, rather than a ready-to-execute military plan. «it’s not a ‘check-the-block, pick A or B or C’ kind of a plan», as he put it. The report will serve as a basis for broader discussion with the new National Security Advisor and White House.

The review offers plans of actions around the world, not just in Iraq and Syria. The Pentagon Press Secretary Navy Captain Jeff Davis said the preliminary plan is trans-regional. «This is not just a military plan. It draws upon all elements of national power-diplomatic, financial, cyber, intelligence (and) public diplomacy», according to him. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the emerging strategy will target not just Islamic State militants but also Al Qaeda and other extremist organizations in the Middle East and beyond. The general said the United States is evaluating the possibility of basing troops in Iraq long after the recapture of Mosul from the IS. That raises the possibility that a longer-term American presence alongside local partners in Syria may also be required.
