Shared news article over social media to raise and spread awareness.

Where money is concerned, there are many who will do literally anything.

We will have to keep a close eye on Africa. People don't pay too much attention to what goes on there. As if we were not embroiled in enough conflicts elsewhere! There are resources to plunder everywhere, that's for sure.

Blackwater; Are mercenaries who respect nothing.

If I recall my history correctly, over-reliance on mercenaries was one of the reasons why the Roman Empire fell. The trouble with mercenaries is they're in it for the money - and you can't collect a paycheck when you're dead.

Any Empire built on vanity, egoism, hunger for power and control is a diseased, unbalanced creature.

The current crop of "mercenaries" are those who operate within the Corporate Capitalist world, a lot of whom are Sociopathic.

Those deluded by right-wing propaganda, who view people (especially fleeing) from other ethnic countries as Immigrants or Refugees are prime candidates for Sociopathy, i.e. lacking in conscience, compassion, empathy, have questionable ethics and morals.

We've already been in Africa, look at the good job we already did......say in Libya, that use to have a system whereby it's citizens received health care, an education, and now they have ISIS.

And that wasn't our first rodeo in Africa.......we have Lily Pads all over that Country and I suspect, if we don't kill off our species, my grandchildren will be hearing about wars in Africa as I heard about Vietnam, and my children heard Iraq, Afghanistan, and that isn't all of them as we all know.

❤️Noted...Thanking you kindly...I'm convinced war is what they love otherwise they would have learned from all previous wars and the dead bodies arriving home in coffins by the hundreds. The first world war was supposed to be the war to end all wars and then along came a lunatic named Hitler. Then we had Korea, Vietnam and on and on to this very day and still not one of these people have learned anything. Trump has never put on a uniform so wouldn't have any idea as most leaders don't.❤️
