US Military Support for Somalia

 The Conversation published on 29 May 2022 a commentary titled "US Will Soon Redeploy Troops in Somalia: The Mission and Key Goals" by Paul D. Williams, George Washington University.

The US goal in Somalia is to stabilize the country, contain and weaken al-Shabaab, and build an effective set of State institutions.  The recent decision by the Biden administration to return about 450 US soldiers to Somalia is intended to support that goal.
