Surface Forces: NATO Warships Circle Africa


September 30, 2007: NATO has sent a flotilla of warships (from Denmark, Portugal, the Netherlands,Canada, Germany and the United States) on a cruise around Africa. They moved  down the west coast, then north to the Red Sea. Officers on board are collecting information on conditions, at sea and ports along the way, so that future peacekeeping operations will be planned with a better knowledge of what is actually there. When the flotilla got to South Africa, there were training exercises with the South African navy (the largest navy in sub-Saharan Africa.)

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
