[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM0NTI3MDkzXzdBMTBDRDM4] More Details on Today's Fighting... Clashes between MNLA and MUJWA on Friday near the region of Gao in northern Mali resulted in dozens of dead and wounded among the terrorists, said MNLA spokesman Hama Ag Sid Ahmed. He reported three injuries on the MNLA side and no deaths. "If there were dead, they would say," he assured. "The MNLA reinforcements continue to move towards the areas of fighting," he added. "The fighting continues and will certainly take more intensity in the late evening and in the morning tomorrow," he added. Malian security sources told AFP that the MNLA suffered a heavy defeat as a result of an ambush and lost many men. "The fighting lasted about 11 hours in Ansongo (a town located southeast of Gao) near the Niger River. There were no clashes between the two groups in Menaka, which is under MNLA control. He also reported that former AQIM leader, Mokhtar Belmokhtar, who was relieved of his command by AQIM's Algerian leadership, has recently joined the Mujao. Three weeks ago, Belmokhtar joined with MUJWA and created six new bases near Gao. "Among their elements, there are Pakistanis, Egyptians and Moroccans," he added. Ansar Dine did not participate in the recent fighting. But if Ansar Dine does not support MNLA as an organization, members of the group could "go support their brothers who are fighting against terrorist groups," according to MNLA spokesman Hama Ag Sid Ahmed. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.tsa-algerie.com/divers/le-mnla-attaque-le-mujao-et-le-groupe-de-belmokhtar-ansar-dine-dit-rester-a-l-ecart-des-combats_22782.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://www.tsa-algerie.com/divers/le-mnla-attaque-le-mujao-et-le-groupe-de-belmokhtar-ansar-dine-dit-rester-a-l-ecart-des-combats_22782.html%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Doff%26client%3Dsafari%26tbo%3Dd&sa=X&ei=Sv2mUJn4Ccuq0AHj8oHgAQ&ved=0CDQQ7gEwAA [/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?
