Djibouti Outpost Somalia Rescue is part of new defense strategy
A small military base in Djibouti, Africa called Camp Lemonnier was the “launching pad” for a military mission to save two kidnapped aid workers in Somalia. The rescue killed all nine kidnappers and the aid workers got out safe. Using small bases in far off places around the world is becoming more and more popular with the army. With small bases they can save money, and quietly help local people with things like building schools, laying roads and vaccinating livestock. The army can also act quicker than if they had to fly in from a ship out in the ocean. Also, because the base is small, it can go unnoticed by the local people.
Djibouti adds 850 soldiers to Peacekeeping force in somalia. November 2, 2011
Djibouti launched around 850 soldiers to an African association peacekeeping assignment on November 2, 2011. The Djiboutian groups joined with about 9,000 soldiers from Uganda and Burundi because they have been there for Djibouti's government since 2007, and sustain them when they need help. There are at this time, 12,000 troops, but peacekeeping executives are eager for the highest of 20,000 troops. More countries continue to join the conflict. Eritrea sent cargo planes loaded with fighting tools for Shabab to southern Somalia. Ethiopia has been seen by a Shabab stronghold, Uganda sends 2,000 more soldiers. Bad weather arrived, wiped out Kenya's soldiers, but now, the Kenyan Airport force has many hits and is smashed very badly. Next, Somalia has been tormented from scarcity, which has killed many people. Many warnings have been sent out, for example, chilling cautions. Many people were leaving their homes because of these threatening cautions. Bad weather spread to other places, too. It was extremely tricky to migrate to other places. Everyone was incredibly frightened that they were losing too many people of their SMALL population. How were people going to survive?
