    Re: Obama to Help UN Invade Mali

    I was on my way to joining the Navy when Colin Powell went to the UN and I saw the writing on the wall that we were going in to Iraq come hell or high water. I said screw that. I'm not about to be cannon fodder in a stupid war that means nothing.

    If I'm gonna die in a war, there'd better be some glory involved.

    I joined in 1996, and got out in 2006. There was no avoiding it for me.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    So you've been involved in the government flouride program?

    Admittedly I skipped most of the thread, but is there any proof of Obama sending in troops, seems the French and other Europies are only doing logistics: France Rules out Any Use of Air Power in Mali - ABC News

    Neither France nor Europe will intervene militarily to oust al-Qaida and its allies from northern Mali — not even with air strikes — the French defense minister said Tuesday.
    "When we say no troops on the ground, that means 'troops in the air' too," said Le Drian.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I can see how this might follow.

    Obama to Help UN Invade Mali

    And, of course, the USA will be fighting the decimated and destroyed Al Q forces that were put into power by the US government.

    Joint U.S. military exercises with West African regimes and the Socialist government of France, which is among the chief proponents of the invasion, have been ongoing for months. More recently, U.S. forces completed a two-week “war-game” exercise aimed at preparing American soldiers to battle alleged “militants” in the region. Ironically, again, those same rebels currently in the crosshairs acquired vast stockpiles of arms as a direct result of Obama’s lawless and unconstitutional war on nearby Libya purportedly “authorized” by the UN.


    Recent examples of armed UN intervention with support from Obama have included the violent overthrow of the Christian president of the Ivory Coast. Despite a ruling by the nation’s highest court that he had won the election, the former leader was replaced with a tyrannical Muslim central banker after the UN and Islamist militias marched to the capital, slaughtering thousands of Christian civilians along the way...

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It looks like war in the Persian Gulf Region intiated by Bush is not Obama's preference. Rather, he would have the United States engage in nation building by military actions and now invasions for the Continent of Africa.
    This is completely wrong.. 3000 African soldiers are going into Mali.. and hoping that Algeria will help..

    They are going after radical Muslims, not Christians.
