Potential Hot Spots: February 6, 2002


The US and Kenya are currently engaging in a series of military training maneuvers named Exercise Edged Mallet. Around 2100 US Marines (from the 13th MEU) are exercising with 250 Kenyan military personnel. Whats next to Kenya? Somalia. The US-Kenyan bilateral exercise will be followed by an African military exercise drawing troops from 16 African countries (the 14 members of the Southern African Development Community as well as Kenya and Uganda). That exercise is named Tanzanite Recamp-3. Recamp is an acronym for a French-sponsored project, the Reinforce African Peacekeeping Capacities initiative.
