    EXCERPTS:

    The Pentagon does not admit that a ring of permanent US military bases
    is operating or under construction throughout Africa. But nobody doubts
    the American military buildup on the African continent is well underway.

    >From oil rich northern Angola up to Nigeria, from the Gulf of Guinea to
    Morocco and Algeria, from the Horn of Africa down to Kenya and Uganda,
    and over the pipeline routes from Chad to Cameroon in the west, and from
    Sudan to the Red Sea in the east, US admirals and generals have been
    landing and taking off, meeting with local officials.

    They've conducted feasibility studies, concluded secret agreements, and
    spent billions from their secret budgets. Their new bases are not bases
    at all, according to US military officials. They are instead "forward
    staging depots", and "seaborne truck stops" for the equipment which
    American land forces need to operate on the African continent. They are
    "protected anchorages" and offshore "lily pads" from which they intend
    to fight the next round of oil and resource wars, and lock down Africa's
    oil and mineral wealth for decades to come. BAR caught up with Chicago's
    Prexy Nesbitt, one of the architects of the US anti-apartheid movement
    in the 1970s and `80s. We asked Dr. Nesbitt about the importance to
    Africans and African Americans of George Bush's Feb. 7 announcement of
    AFRICOM, the new Pentagon command for the African continent.
