      Actually the yanks have been destabilizing Nigeria for some time.
      The problems in Myanmar are also a joint US/UK effort, they don’t want China to develop the major oil field in the Bay of Bengal.

      All wars are about money, and oil is liquid money.

    Nigeria is another front in the US war against oil producers.
    The Americans seem desperate to raise the price of oil.
    Makes you wonder how close the big American oil companies are to bankruptcy?
