Me thinks Ms Marsden's delusional propaganda spin revolting. You should tell the truth. France has invaded Mali for one reason only - France's utter dependence on nuclear energy and France's former colony's rich supply of uranium. France's 'war for profit' has now spilled into Niger where Areva is complaining their mines need protecting. Areva has been after the uranium mines in Mali for quite a number of years and the French govt - like the US - is looking out for its bread and butter from the mining corp Areva by forcefully taking over Mali to steal its natural resources. If the warmongering for profit French win this one, sinister Areva will have the uranium mine they so want. Mark my words.

So what, anonymous? You are proving Marsden's point. War will always be a part of the human condition. When people are unable to obtain through peaceful, affordable means that which they consider essential, there will be wars fought over those resources. The Jihadists want land, control of everyone on that land, and dominance over the entire world. Unable to purchase or achieve this goal through peaceful means (Dawa), they have declared war on the non-Muslim world. We can pretend that they really are only misunderstood anti-corporate freedom fighters, but they will still kill us if they get the chance. And dead is dead. But you keep your head in the sand, Anonymous.

Meanwhile, we need to fight for oil, or at least dissolve the EPA so we can produce our own oil. Impeach Obama and Reid for malfeasance. Viva la revolucion.

PARIS -- The anti-war types are unhappy with France's foray into Mali to help that country's troops eradicate balkanizing terrorism at the request of the Malian government. If even the French aren't "allowed" to go to war -- and under a Socialist president, no less -- then who can?

It would indeed be nice if there were no wars anywhere on Earth. It would also be great to own five BMWs and three private islands. Both are equally unlikely scenarios, yet only the first is accepted as plausible by the perpetually deluded.

Usually the anti-war crowd will say that "imperialist ambitions"...
