#2 Not really.

Some Malian forces have been US trained, mostly at the battalion level and below. They've gotten some support equipment, like radios. They just got done fighting against some Touareg elements; their securing agreements with the tribes is laudable and of their own doing.

Frankly, you'd be better off sticking comments about legalising marijuana. Judging by your posts, at least you'd be talking as an expert.
