[quote:insertfunnyusername:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM1NzYwOTAwX0JFRTIyODgy] Militants have dynamited a strategic bridge near the Niger border on the road to Gao, one of the main towns in northern Mali occupied by extremists, sources said Friday. “The Islamists dynamited the Tassiga bridge. No one can pass to Niger or come to Gao,” said the owner of a transport business, Abdou Maiga. http://dawn.com/2013/01/25/mali-militants-blow-up-strategic-bridge-leading-to-niger/ Malian and French troops have retaken the town of Hombori, officials say, as they continue their campaign to regain control of northern Mali from rebels. Hombori lies about 160km (100 miles) from the Islamist stronghold of Gao. Earlier, French warplanes reportedly bombed rebel positions, fuel stores and ammunition dumps near Gao. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-21203731 A surveillance aircraft from RAF Waddington has been sent to Mali to support France's military action there, the Ministry of Defence said. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21200718 G4S, the world's biggest security firm, is seeing a pick up in demand for its services from embassies and companies across Africa in the wake of unrest in Mali and Algeria. http://news.yahoo.com/g4s-says-algeria-mali-unrest-raising-security-demand-171919613--sector.html Japan closes Mali embassy as security fears rise http://sg.news.yahoo.com/japan-shut-mali-embassy-over-security-fears-080639994.html [/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?
