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. Another major benefactor of this intervention will be China who has invested $billions in this region in order to gain access to the resources. But just like Afghanistan the American public will have their fears of terrorism stoked in order to accede to the desires of imperialistic gain.

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.

cynicalbastard: sweet-daddy-2: miss diminutive: Can't they just send Cajuns and kill two birds with one stone?

But who would make our gumbo?

Wouldn't sending Cajuns just be another form of gumbo diplomacy?

To contrast with my liberal fellows here, the actions in Mali are absolutely essential.

Deconstruct a bit here: an avowed Socialist government is waging war against a communist-terrorist revolutionary movement.

If the good guys lose here, we all lose what little progress we have made in Africa. We can't lose this one. We just can't.

But you know if we spelled it Molly, all the liberals would just be raving about and there would be more reprimands about political correctness, proper spelling, and geography than you could shake a glowstick at.

Cajuns and Quebecois wouldn't be much use. People in Mali speak real French.

oh hell, if it weren't for the French navy the American terrorists would have lost their little anti-government uprising against the Crown.

Remember, kids, the French are the reason you don't speak English today. So thank them!

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.)

I guess they don't like the thought of US troops being used to kill blah people.

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.
