The War in Mali (I already told you this was a bad idea.)
Despite heavy bombing by the French since Friday the Islamists in Mali are actually gaining territory. A whole lot of innocent people are going to get killed so that all of Mali can go back to being a French neo-colony at best. It may end up completely controlled by the Islamists. I personally don't see anything good that can come out of the French led war in Mali. In fact I would feel a whole lot better if the French just completely stopped their habit of bombing African countries. While they are at it they could allow their former colonies to actually gain real independence rather than continuing to support a system of neo-colonial states that do not put the interests of their own citizens above that of French capital. Consider this an open thread on the war in Mali since no other blogs are apparently discussing it.
