#1 a Western assault on the Islamist stronghold could rally jihadists around the world and prompt terrorist attacks as far away as Europe

The way it looks, this will probably happen anyway in view of the supremacy mindset of the jihadists.

#2 But all that deliberate planning collapsed swiftly when heavily armed, battle-hardened Islamist fighters returned from combat in Libya.

Oh well, chock it up as one of those unforeseen consequences of limited humanitarian missions with brief period's kinetic activity war. At least the world can breathe easier now that the citizens of Benghazi are safe.

#3 The Radical Islamist Jihad was always GLOBAL in scope.

Iff the Hard Boyz succeed in taking over Central Africa, it will leave just formerly British Southern Africa + Ethiopia + Liberia. WAIT UNTIL THE JIHAD BEGINS IN CENTRAL + SOUTH AMERICA!

* WAFF > MALI ISLAMISTS ADVANCE OFFENSIVE DESPITE FRENCH MILITARY ACTION.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > BARRY LANDO: ANOTHER INTERVENTION IN MALI, ANOTHER FREE-RIDE [succesful profitable business opportunity]FOR CHINA?

China the biggest single benefactor from US-Euro interventions in Africa + African affairs.
