Just in from DOD

Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates announced today that the President has nominated Gen. William E. Ward for re-appointment to the rank of general with assignment as commander, U.S. Africa Command, Stuttgart, Germany.Gen. Ward is currently serving as the deputy commander, U.S. European Command, Germany.

The command will be first established as a sub-unified command, subordinate to U.S. European Command, with an initial operational capability by October 2007. The President authorized and directed the establishment of a separate unified command no later than the end of Fiscal Year 2008.

The goal of U.S. Africa Command is to help build the capacity of African nations and African organizations like the African Standby Force to promote peace and security and respond to crises on the continent.At the same time, the command will coordinate DOD support to other U.S. Government programs for Africa in the areas of diplomacy and development to help make those efforts more effective.For more information, visit http://www.defenselink.mil/home/features/2007/africom/ .

Chad President Idriss Deby

Deby killed on the "front lines"... Interesting....

President elect for 6th term. Apparently friendly to the West

There are a lot of micro conflicts occuring across the continent that gets very little press.

Recently re-elected president dies of wounds suffered on front line as country’s soldiers battle rebels, army says.

Deby’s death cut his 30-year political career short and will likely throw Chadian politics into disarray.

. The charter repeals the preceding constitution and will be implemented as the “basic law of the republic,” according to its terms.
The younger Deby has also been named “supreme head of the armed forces,” it said.
Deby’s son had overseen his father’s security as head of the elite presidential guard and had often appeared alongside him.
