I don't care what happens in Mali. It is none of the US's business. If the French want to stick their noses where they don't belong, that's their affair. Just don't allow them to drag us into the mess.

I hope we learned our lesson from Viet Nam. they started that war, and dragged us into it, then stood back and pointed fingers at us for what bad people we were for carrying it out. I say let the French own this one all on their own.

Vietnam was fought to prevent China from having access to enough rice to feed a 3.5 million man army. Mali has uranium. If we do not control the supply of Uranium, by the end of the century all Americans will be praying to Mecca. Viva la revolucion.

"Just don't allow them to drag us into the mess."

Oh, it will happen. That is the foreign policy of the United States now. Any conflict anywhere, and the US will find a way to get involved. Don't you just love paying the bill to be the world's policemen.

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"...
