Afri,

The major count against Rwanda is that it's landlocked, meaning that AFRICOM will not be easily supplied and can be shut down by refusal of neighboring airspace.


A headquarters is not a military base that needs heavy logistic supply.

According to the Pentagon, the main purpose of Africom is to train the "local(Afrfican) forces" to counter the "terrorists", instead of service as a base.  How do you read "local forces" and "terrorists" is another issue, but, to train some people you have to be together with them, or at least you have to get access to them easily , right?

You can't bring your trainees to Liberia for training, you have to locate your trainers at a place where you can easily send them to the places where the trainees are.

:)
