Holding the Line Against Chaos

America is supporting the recognized Libyan government against ISIL from drone bases in Tunisia in addition to the Marine aircraft at sea that have supplied air support.

We have a drone base in Tunisia:

The United States has begun using a Tunisian air base to conduct surveillance drone operations inside Libya, the latest expansion of its campaign against Islamic State militants in North Africa, U.S. government sources said on Wednesday.

The unarmed drones have been flying out of Tunisia since late June and are now part of a U.S. air assault in support of Libyan pro-government forces fighting to push Islamic State fighters out of their stronghold in the Libyan city of Sirte, the officials said.

America's Africa Command (AFRICOM) sure is getting involved to a far greater degree than it has in the recent past to directly take on the forces that are disrupting stability in Africa.

China and North Korea in Asia and the Pacific.

Russia, Iran, and jihadis in the Middle East.

Russia and jihadis in Europe.

Jihadis in Africa.

Jihadi terror attacks in North America.

And a looming disintegration of Venezuela in South America.

Thank God for Antarctica.
