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.

Interesting info, Niger could be the next country hit by some kind of rebellion then, they had one until 2009 and they have the biggest Tuareg population in the region and surprise, uranium makes up for 72% of national exports.

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....

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.:(
