[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0MzkyODU5X0FFMzQxOEFD] Middle East On-line (which is a USG publication) just updated us on who might be supplying at least some of the additional 2,500 troops needed... [b]West Africa plots expanded military force in north Mali[/b] Talks among West African nations on a strategy to retake Mali's Islamist-held north have included plans for an expanded mission of 5,500 troops, including those from outside the region, a source familiar with the talks said Friday. [b]Representatives from South Africa, Mauritania, Morocco, Libya, Algeria and Chad would also be invited to participate in a regional summit on the military strategy set for Sunday in the Nigerian capital Abuja, the source said. . . [/b] "They are recommending to the summit 5,500 troops as against the initial proposition of 3,200 by ECOWAS. The difference is expected to be contributed by non-ECOWAS states which have signified interest to contribute troops." http://middle-east-online.com/english/?id=55405 Mauritania, Algeria & Morocco originally said they were out... That leaves South Africa, Libya & Chad... South Africans are mostly Christians...(that caused issues in Somalia) Libya no longer has an armed forces (they didn't survive the NATO no-move zone imposed upon them)... Which means we are left with Libya Shield Forces.... Those would be the thuggish, but comically incompetent, militias we created in 2011. Geraldo Rivera said they were the most incompetent and dangerous (to themselves) fighting forces he had ever seen. Geraldo may be a joke, but he's been to many war zones - so that was quite a diss... Anyway, I'm sure the Libyan Shield forces have gotten their act together by now. Along with their recent long-range shelling exercises in Bani Walid, they've been fighting the evil Tebu in Kufra & Sabha, killing hundreds, since March of 2012... You see the Tebu are African tribesmen who have no right to be in Libya. They need to go back home to Chad... And what's the other country who might contribute forces? Oh that's right Chad... here's wikipedia article of the Tebu - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toubou_people [/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?
