  •  long-term plans for military intervention in Afric (5+ / 0-)

    long term plans, how I hate the sound of that.

    Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire, stressed in an interview with RT that there is a lot of US and French involvement in the crisis.
    He noted that Mali’s interim president, Dioncounda Traore, has close ties with the United States and was installed by US-trained Captain Amadou Sanogo, who led last year’s coup d’état.
    Azikiwe believes that Paris and Washington are using the involvement of radical Islamist groups in the rebellion as a pretext for military intervention in Mali. “I do believe that both France and the United States have long-term plans for military intervention in Africa.”
