Must Read

The Department of Defense has suspended military aid to the country of Guinea in response to the coup led by Guinean special operations that took place earlier this month. Members of the Guinean force who organized the rebellion were being trained by American Green Berets at the time. The night before a ‘down day’ for both the American and Guinean troops, Guinean forces waited for everyone to fall asleep before making the hours long drive to the capital of Conarky. A team of U.S Special Forces members began teaching Guinean special operators back in July about small-unit tactics and combat. During the approximately 90 days of training, U.S. troops id meet with Guinean Col. Mamady Doumbouya who is the new self-appointed executive leader of the country. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told the press that the Pentagon shares the sentiment of other U.S. government and military bodies that have stated their condemnation of the regime change.
