[quote:insertfunnyusername:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MTI0Mjk1XzE5RDM1MTlC] [quote:DarbyDoom:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MTI0MDY3XzczQzFGODE2] [quote:insertfunnyusername:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MTIzMzA3X0JBMEFEOTcw] [quote:DarbyDoom:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MTIyNjUzXzdFNjc0Q0Ey] This website has great background on the Tauregs... Basically, many analysts believe that due to class & tribal issues, the Taureg will never be able to create a unified state. Tauregs have a highly hierarchical social structure. Ifogas (or Iforas) are northern Mali's traditional Tuareg nobles. Most rebel leaders are Ifogas. The Idnane are middle class. There are Idnanes in the MNLA, but in earlier rebellions, the Malian government was able to exploit differences between the 2 classes to split rebel alliances. There are also slave classes, who are often black. They usually have not supported Taureg rebellions.

[/quote] Both Niger & Mali have uranium...But I don't think Mali has uranium mines... As for who's next, watching three countries fall apart (Syria, Libya, & Mali) is enough to me....I'll get a new hobby before the next country.....Although I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Polisario of late.... [/quote] I said Niger coz of the biggest Tuareg population in the region, almost twice of the Mali's and lots of conflicts and instability the past decade in Niger too. Believe me it's enough for me too, i find it extremely depressing, some say that 2012 isn't doomy enough but i can't remember when was the last time that violence and hostilities erupted in so many places at the same time, certainly not in my lifetime and unfortunately is spreading fast in other African and Asian countries. It's not looking good at all for 2013 and beyond. Greece being so close to the powder keg and in combination with the financial mess we are into worries me even more tbh.:( [/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?
