Kenya Becomes Major US Ally

Показать описание
Kenya is now the US’ newest major ally. They are the first sub-Saharan nation to receive the designation of Non-NATO Major Ally and they are the 20th nation to get it. This will allow them to obtain better weapons and have closer security cooperation. Why Kenya though? Well, Kenya has been a key part of American counterterrorism forces in East Africa. They are also part of the Ukrainian defense contact group and have deployed police officers to Haiti. This will be Biden’s 3rd formal ally - behind Qatar and Colombia. Kenya will also be the 4th African nation to become a major US ally alongside Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt.

That’s a win for Kenya, that’s a win for the US, and that’s a win for the world, truly.

They were so kind to us after 9/11. The Masai tribe in Kenya sent us a lot of cattle (considered sacred to their people). Glad to have them recognized this way. We need them

Kenya has also been a key player in helping establish a major health care system in Africa. I've met/worked with many doctors who go there to help train people.

Welcome Kenya to the family I have always had respect for these nations as their people have had to deal with a lot in the past 200 years. I am glad Kenya is a now a major ally and I will gladly fight alongside a Kenyan any day.

FINALLY! Kenya has been an ally even longer then most Realize. Back after 9/11 Kenya gave us a helping hand by offering some of their cows, a Sacred Symbol to them. Though in Comparison to what we have to them this was a great gift in Solidarity and is possibly relevant to the Big friend for Counter Terrorism part he mentioned in the short.

Kenyans have already been serving in the U.S. Military for years. They have US ARMY recruiting in Mombasa and it’s like a dual citizen dual green to gold arrangement.

Honestly After Morroco reconizing the US's independance back when they were part of the barbary pirates; I'd say they've been an ally sense then.

Why do people think Kenyans hate the US? They are the most stable democracy in subsaharan Africa and we have no history of beef…
