#1 WTF? In the name of Cromwell, assemble the fleet (such as it is) and commence doing the thing we do.

Oh... Gao.

#5 Waydaminnit! Yesterday the turbans blew a "strategic" bridge, thereby cutting off access to both Niger and to Gao. Now we've got the Frenchies teleporting in right past the wreckage.

Does anybody know how deep the water was under the blown bridge?
