It's OK, we're just there as advisers.
 
2013-01-14 08:28:49 PM
well, to be fair, the french sent troops to help liberate what was a third world country from the british about 240 years ago....
 
2013-01-14 08:30:33 PM
I would think Subby would be happy since this is going after Al-Queda.

The U.S. is considering a range of options to help, including sending cargo aircrafts to lift more French ground troops into Mali, providing air refueling tankers for French air combat patrols, and offering intelligence gleaned from aerial surveillance.


Oh yeah, that's some real close involvement there.

Bet Subby forgot all about THAT one.

Considering the forces the US trained and armed jumped over to the rebel forces this is more Afghanistan wrapped in Vietnam.
 
2013-01-14 08:55:06 PM
It's about time we invaded. I'm sick of all this Mali coddling.
 
2013-01-14 08:55:11 PM
Just a "police action". Nothing to see here, move along ..*** whistles and walks away***

Hey, at least it's someplace new.
We Americans need another geography lesson.

It sounds like the French forces in Mali are...

Well I'm no foreign expert, but I believe it should be spelled Molly, as in "Molly was the singer in the band". Maybe that's what they're fighting about.

The New World actually had a higher standard of living than the Old World @ that point in time.

//Also, at least it isn't Asia.  Getting involved in another land war there should be grounds for involuntary commitment.

International alliances, how do they work?

Has any of the usual suspects shown up to Obama's 'Nam 'Nam 'Nam this thread yet?

Yeah, Americans might actually learn something about Africa. Can't be all bad.

And...thread.
 
2013-01-14 09:02:16 PM
Yeah, I've been seeing a lot of facebook-outrage today from folks who are usually quite gung-ho about cheerleading the use of military force.

I guess they don't like the thought of US troops being used to kill blah people.
 
2013-01-14 09:02:21 PM
Will there be rules this time?

\I don't actually like that movie, but the reference fit.

How else do we keep these corporations running?
 
2013-01-14 09:03:19 PM
we're sending troops to Timbuktu and back
 
2013-01-14 09:03:23 PM
Can't they just send Cajuns and kill two birds with one stone?
 
2013-01-14 09:07:02 PM
Obama's the worse muslin, sympethizer, socialist, communist, dictator EVER!!
 
2013-01-14 09:07:49 PM
A very important thing everyone has to remember....it's okay when Obama does it.
 
2013-01-14 09:08:34 PM
If we don't act decisively, the terrorists will control all that sand!
 
2013-01-14 09:08:42 PM

miss diminutive: Can't they just send Cajuns and kill two birds with one stone?

How about we send Canadian Indians?
 
2013-01-14 09:08:48 PM
Meh. This isn't a big deal.
This has me more concerned. Link
 
2013-01-14 09:09:36 PM
Timbuktu is worth a mass, Henry
 
2013-01-14 09:10:09 PM
Well, what did you think "global war on terror" meant?
 
2013-01-14 09:10:42 PM

GAT_00: I would think Subby would be happy since this is going after Al-Queda. Communists


That would make Vietnam cool retrospectively. After all, opposing the Commies in Vietnam was as vital to national security as opposing Al Qaida in Outer Absurdia is today. We all know what would have become of our freedoms had the Reds taken over in 'Nam. And, of course, we can be sure that our government today is being as honest with the nation every time they cry "Al Qaida!" in order to justify intervention as they were 50 years ago when the cry was "Communists!"

Because Obama does it right. Like HW Bush and Clinton did. Dubya was a massive farkup.

Has Canada sent a laundry ship yet?
They could also ship the french half of quebec there too in order to translate something.

From certain points of view ( Native American ), that ended badly too...
 
2013-01-14 09:11:57 PM
We killed tend tens of thousands of Libyans, which sent most of its arms streaming into Mali. Now we must kill the people of Mali!

Indeed; if the god-king-messiah decrees it.

His will must be obeyed.

Sam Kinnison said it best here (pops; NSFW audio).
 
2013-01-14 09:15:39 PM
So now, as a direct result of our intervention in Libya, we have to fight in Mali, against people armed and trained by the US.

Go USA!
 
2013-01-14 09:15:59 PM
Sat Queda.
 
2013-01-14 09:16:06 PM
I kinda wish we'd fight with a second-world nation once in a while, just to keep us on our toes.
 
2013-01-14 09:16:16 PM
Those almost look like a shorter version of pants
 
2013-01-14 09:16:28 PM
Jesus that article. Any chance to get a soundbite of any half credible source shiatting on Obama into the discourse, I guess.

As for Aid to Mali, we did kinda break that country by forcing all the shiat out of Libya. It's like Jihadist whack-a-mole over there.
 
2013-01-14 09:17:48 PM
Hector Remarkable: Maybe that's what they're fighting about.

Oil in north Mali, gold and uranium in southwest Mali. And a backup plan for Halliburton, KBR and that crowd just in case Afghanistan peters out. Yeah, beware the military industrial complex.

fusillade762: It's OK, we're just there as advisers.


There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - [pauses] - shame on you. Fool me - [pauses] - You can't get fooled again.
, ), in which the president confused a centuries-old proverb ("Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.")I guess this is Obama's Vietnam. (Runs for Canada. Oh, wait, I'm already in Canada.)

Been to Mali. Nice place, interesting people, food was infact great. Hot as hell and dry. That was 20 yrs ago.
I say spec ops on the ground with US drone and French air and ground. Get those bastards out! They have no claim. And it is just one more place they want to control.
 
2013-01-14 09:21:52 PM
Well, if we just filibuster long enough, the French will eventually surrender and that'll be the end of that.

Because that's worked very well in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia. Well, I'm sure it will work this time in Mali with no negative repercussions.
