#1 Are Ethnic Tuareg separatists now the [picking winners and losers] winners de jour? Interesting how we're suddenly 'all in' with the French concerning a situation which has been brewing quietly for years. If only Mooomar, could tell us where his guns have gotten off to. I'm sure we'll learn much more from the Hildebeast's upcoming testimony.

More likely attempting to achieve their objective by any means necessary. Sometimes that means aligning with the unsavory (e.g. Stalin in WWII, or Dostum in AFG).

#4 Is it just me, or is anyone else suddenly seeing a mental image of Mussolini's Boyz in WW2 getting the arses kicked by primitive Ethiopians + skirt-wearing Greeks???
