Mali, France and the war on terror in Africa

Another terrific piece from Horace Campbell. Although I am amazed that he believes that the American aid’s having prepared the soldiers for the coup in Mali was unwitting. This seems especially naive, particularly as he clearly sees through the al-Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM) nonsense. Nevertheless, a good report. As I see it the Pentagon planned the coup as pretext for intervention and permanent occupation of the Sahel, and this as a pre-emption against Chinese influence there and elsewhere in Africa.
