The United States should forsake its base in Djibouti and assemble another army installation in Eritrea after the Communist system in Asmara tumbles from power.
At the point when the current government in Asmara is ousted, either from a rebellion or the demise of Afwerki, the US should fabricate a solid relationship with Eritrea’s future ruler to convince them to have a US army installation in Assab or Massawa.
The US has just a single army installation on the African landmass, Camp Lemonnier, Washington’s Naval Expeditionary Base, arranged close to Djibouti–Ambouli International Airport in Djibouti City, and home to the Combined Joint Task Force — Horn of Africa of the U.S. Africa Command .
Chinese financial and political impact in Djibouti will oblige and reduce US impact, driving Washington to yield Africa to Beijing. For instance, army installations require calculated upkeep for provisions.
Washington ought to recognize judiciously that an army installation in Eritrea would be beneficial for both the US and Eritrea’s financial and international interests.
In any case, Eritrean receptiveness to a more strong US and Eritrea relationship failed to attract anyone’s attention since Washington needed to dodge relationship with the denials of basic freedoms and the absence of popularity based standards in Eritrea.
Indeed, Washington made some unacceptable estimation by not building up an army installation in Eritrea.
It is in the United States’ public interest to migrate its army installation from Djibouti to Eritrea.
Since Djibouti is a parking area for Japan, China, Italy, and France, a US army installation in Eritrea would prompt less political interest and move against Chinese delicate force authority in Djibouti.
Washington has an open door to draw in with Eritrea and harden its relationship by building an army installation in Assab or Massawa and considerably lifting its relationship militarily, financially, and politically with Eritrea.
