[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MDk4MjIyXzkyMTk0MEZG] Oh no - Mali is great terrain for drones.. New test range for their expensive toys...US & France will never leave... ...The French have already deployed drones to the West African nation to track down six of their hostages they believe are being held there by an increasingly strong al Qaeda presence, comprised partially of French citizens. This operation began amid ongoing closed-door talks in Paris among Western intelligence powers concerned about what they see as a new hub for al Qaeda.... The Sahel region, by comparison, is open, sparsely populated and flat. . . "There is not a lot of human terrain or physical terrain to hide in," ... Stratfor has reports of U.S. reconnaissance aircraft over Mali along with the French drones, mostly there for surveillance and to "measure what's going on," Stewart says. The organization has classified the situation in northern Mali as unstable, and that it has become evident that "external action will be required to tilt the balance back in favor of Mali's central government," according to a report. . . Despite Romney Claims, Mali Is No Afghanistan http://t.usnews.com/a330BD [b]So, not only is the military-industrial complex getting us into wars so we consume their products....They are choosing wars that make their products look good. Both Mali & Libya were great locales for drone strikes, guided missiles, & air surveillance...[/b] [/quote]
Background - About a year ago, I stumbled on a website run by a group of students in France. They represented an organization called the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA is its initials in French).
I kept up with their movement to establish an independent Taureg state in Northern Mali. As I followed their statements and the occasional MSM article, it became apparent that something was not quite right. These kids were being set up. I came to believe that I was watching Western intelligence operation to create the pretext for Western intervention in Africa (in other words, I was watching a "false flag" war in the making)...
By early October, the yellow journalism building the case for war was undeniable...So, I decided to create this thread. Using MSM news sources (with occasional commentary posts) I tried to give the background on what is happening in Mali & why it might be happening....
Thanks for reading - Here is my original post...
Who do I root for?
