[/quote] Yep, totally staged wars. I was just impressed that the cable "predicted" the situation in the northern part of Mali 6 years ago. I was also looking in that Ranghold gold company, lots of downgrades and upgrades by credit companies in the last year, Qatar is heavilly buying gold mining companies all over the world the last couple of years, maybe there is a clash of interests there for how they will share Mali's wealth, who knows. Point is off course that Mali is doing ok in the resources dept as it was expected, i'm not surprised at all, just wanted to be sure. [quote:DarbyDoom:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MTE0MDUyXzZGMjYyNThB] It's Azawad ...The Taureg call their homeland Azawad... (But you're right about Mali being French Sudan) [/quote] Not my words, it's from the article in the link. [/quote] I know it wasn't your word choice, but the "North Sudan" designation bothered me... I know this war is not about the Taureg... But when you aren't even using their word for the area....The Neo-Colonialism is too obvious... As for natural resources, Mali is in that sweet spot - they know the resources are there, but the natives are probably blissfully unaware of the potential - ripe for exploitation... Oh and if you are really into conspiracy theories - the air fields of Northern Mali are major transit points in the international drug trade. Afghan heroin to North America and cocaine for Europe - the hand-off point is Mali. It's become so entrenched, MNLA members were arrested in South America gun-running for FARC... http://www.isn.ethz.ch/isn/Security-Watch/Articles/Detail/?lng=en&id=110368 [/quote] You don't have to be into conspiracies to see that the international drug trade has important connections with extremism, it's happening even on European soil with Kosovo, i can't even imagine what's happening to Magreb and other African countries like Somalia for example. Agreed that the natives in Mali are probably blissfully unaware for their resources, it have been this way for centuries in Africa unfortunately! :( [/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?
Foreign jihadists from Sudan and Western Sahara pour into northern Mali
HUNDREDS of jihadist fighters, mainly from Sudan and Western Sahara, arrived in northern Mali over the weekend to support the Islamist groups ahead of a threatened regional intervention, witnesses and a security source say.
