runwiz: The curent situation in Mali with the Islamist forces is in large part blowback from Libya. So much for that intervention. And the Islamist/Al Qaeda threat is just an excuse to intervene in Mali and West Africa. It's really all about natural resources. France relies greatly upon nuclear power and French companies operate uranium mines in Mali and Niger. They can't risk losing control of these deposit.
