Eye on Africom

Primum non nocere as the saying goes has never been Africom's modus operandus in spite of their protestations to the contrary. They certainly are not sharing their largesse from their bloated web site with the average dial-up user on the African continent. Click the Africon image to see some of your tax dollars at work.
I find this site very useful for following the larger issues of our hegemonic tendencies in Africa.

I was looking at the AFRICOM FAQ and maybe an About section on Sept. 30. I remember coming across some list of core principles, although I can’t remember exactly what it was called. What struck me was a brief paragraph for one of those principles titled:
Do no harm
Which was followed by a description of how AFRICOM would support US policy, with no mention of Africa.

I kept thinking about it and looked for it again on Oct 2, but so far as I could tell, it was gone. They have revised the FAQ information a number of times, so I guess this was another.
