If you weren’t aware, there is a war going on in Mali between Islamists militias (rearmed after having fought for Col. Qadafi in Libya) and the military of the Mali government. What is even more interesting is the fact that the French military is actually the main source of recent victories against the Islamist militias, based on the northern region of the country. I find it ironic that the French, who were once a colonial power in African and around the world, now are greeted by Africans as liberators from tyrannical and brutal Islamist movements.

For further information on this on-going international incident, please check out this timeline posted by The New York Times. I have found it very informative and useful.

And remember to stay informed, so others won’t end up making choices for you. Reclaim the alternative.
