[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MTExNjI4X0YzRTFENkQz] Speaking of the Emir of Qatar - the acting President of Mali is in Doha this week.... (This excerpt in translated so its a little rough) Mali's Acting President Traoré met the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, in Doha. Traore had a mission: to convince the Emir of Qatar to be at his side in the crisis Mali. . . Qatar is important in the Middle East but Qatar is also suspected by intelligence services, including French, (of assisting) various armed groups who control the northern Mali. Traore wanted the Emir of Qatar to understand the crisis as perceived by the Malian government. Traore explained the situation in the north of Mali. He explained the development efforts in the North since the last peace deal with the Tauregs (in 2006). [b]He wanted the Emir of Qatar to understand that it was better to be on the side of the State rather than the side of armed groups, at least if Qatar's activities in Northern Mali were motivated by economic or geopolitical interests.[/b] According a member of his delegation, the Emir said his country could not do anything about the crisis in Mali and that he had at no time provided support to Tuareg rebels or the Islamists. [b]According to Doha, the Malian crisis is due to poverty. And the emir assured the Malian president he would make an outstanding contribution to the development of Mali, but only after the crisis.[/b] Source - Lire l'article sur Jeuneafrique.com : Mali: Mission Halftone for Dioncounda Traoré in Qatar | Jeuneafrique.com http://www.jeuneafrique.com/Article/ARTJAWEB20121026161957/#.UIrnPeZsfiQ.twitter [/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?
