THE AL QAEDA SHELL GAME: LOOK AT INSURGENCIES IN AFGHANISTAN, YEMEN & LIBYA, WHILE MALI IS ABOUT TO BECOME A TERROR STATE

I realize that there has been a lot of foreign policy oriented material on this site lately, yet as I have stated many times before, foreign affairs dictates the history of weaponry and military strategy.

The video below is a fantastic piece describing what is actually going on in the western failed state of Mali. Literally half the country is now controlled by terrorists and jihadists who are bent on taking their holy war directly to the western world. A large portion of the weaponry that was looted from Libya during its Civil War found its way to Mali and directly into the hands of Al Qaeda operatives who are not only living in the northern half of that country, but ruling it. Meanwhile, the southern part of Mali is being ruled by an incredibly weak provisional government that will probably fall in the not to distant future if nothing is done to bolster their military capabilities.

As with anything in “deep’ Africa, the west is quick to turn a blind eye to the security issues and human suffering at hand. Although, in the case of Mali, we may not have a choice as to intervene or not as the results of an entire country ran by Al Qaeda and Jihad driven groups will eventually come to our shores if we act too late or not at all. Sadly, this is not a problem that cruise missiles and helicopter gunships can solve alone, Green Berets on the other hand, backed by largely non-invasive CIA operations, possibly. Unless we train the south’s military and provide them with basic arms it will only be a matter of time until we have a problem on our hands equivalent to, or worse than, Afghanistan on September 10th, 2001.

    I think you are correct on this. It’s one of the things I was happy to see the news agencies actually (barely) report on when the murders occurred in Benghazi — CNN actually showed a map of Africa and highlighted all of the five or six countries there that are nearly halfway controlled by AQ. Most people think they are simply dying off in Afghanistan…. maybe that’s why this administration is waffling so much on whether it’s a terrorist attack or not — maybe they don’t even understand what’s going on in Africa.

    On one hand the more we fight them the more they spread, on the other hand Islamist rule is not the same thing as Al Queda, and the Taliban were not the same as Al Queda. Maybe we should take care of our own borders, keep track of worldwide shipping and transportation, and let them rot in thier grubby bush camps. They have us chasing our own tail and bankrupting us, they seem to have learned the lessons of Vietnam, and Soviet Afghanistan better than we did. I have got to stop going to this site, I have no influence in these matters. I like airplanes and engineering but the politics is too awful

    I command satan to take his hands off of Mali who have a light in their hearts, who are a good people, who have suffered in many ways, who knew right from wrong before this and who will always know that God has love for each and every one!, I call on you Lord Yeshua The Messiah to watch over these people in this time of disparity against al qaeda the army of obama, keep them safe from harm, hide them from the enemy, I pray it in your name Lord Yeshua, son of the Almighty God, who so grants the world to you for your own kingdom!, amen.
