Talking up further escalations of military involvement in Northern Africa in the wake of the Algeria hostage crisis, British Prime Minister David Cameron urged an “iron resolve” for a growing military engagement in the region that could last many decades.
The heads of Britain’s top spy agencies as well as the Chief of the Defence Staff are planning a Tuesday meeting to begin planning for a broad war across the entire Sahel, a region spanning Africa from east to west from Eritrea to the coast of Senegal and including several hotbed areas in the Sahara desert.
British officials say they will use their current chairmanship of the G8 to push for broad international backing for a war across the entire region, attempting to turn the hostage situation into a 9/11-style excuse for regional war.
“Just as we had to deal with that in Pakistan and in Afghanistan, so the world needs to come together to deal with this threat in north Africa.” Cameron insisted. Last weekend’s French invasion of Mali may have been the first round of this war, but it is clear from Cameron’s speech it won’t be the last.

And that's what is all about and that's where NATO comes handy.., look people.., we are at 3rd world war and is been going on for some times now.., Middle East was for Bush, Middle East and Africa is for Obama to celebrate.., yet in time the pacific wars would be inherited by either Obama or whoever after him.., with starting the war in pacific it means the world is an open war in all geographical direction one could imagine. So go and gear up for the real 3rd world war to start.., these wars are just the sneaky ones you can hear about.., there are others that vulture capitalism don't want you to see or hear about.
WAR. It's what governments do.
War its what a non democratic yet falsifying democracy forfilling its obligation toward war machinery producing killings macins. the government that you are talking about been at war for last 60 years without winning any of them nor gathering any support for its action.., 80% of people if Middle East se the us and EU and Israel as their first enemies.., so whats good about war.., absolutely nothing.., is just creating more of the homeland security with more state capitalism in control then democracy.
btw the map picture you are using is out of date. missing south/north sudan split.
The never ending war to keep transferring money from taxpayers to the MIC, North Africa phase.
Is it so?
And who's responsible for that, you punk?
The best profit for internacional /mainly zionist/ banksters has always been a war. And the war has to last some time!
China invests heavily in Africa, builds and extends cooperation – while US diplomacy is "sponzoring terrorism, weapons and military bases export". Just MISSILE diplomacy. To some all over the World. "DO AS WE WISH"! Or remember we have military base in your backyard. Togheter with insane Israels regime those two major players remain TRUTH AXIS OF EVIL on this planet….And NATO was driven for Zionist colonist wars starting with Libya…
Expected false flag somewhere in Europe will seal NATO commitment for any aggression in Africa, Asia and ME…..Satanic force of Internacional Zionism is waging "wars against humanity"…with no end in sight peter czech
And you thought colonialism ended in the 60s and 70s. Well, they're BAACCK!
the war will last if you stay, they DON'T WANT YOU
Yes send in the Afrika Korps, oops I mean NATO.
Dispatches from a deluded politician's mind.
The UK cannot even afford a decent aircraft carrier (but BAE is getting rich anyway). They can't equip or train their troops. Scotland may well give the UK the finger. There are enormous social and economic problems. They have nice craters due to bailouts and failed banks (but the bubbles haven't defalted yet), Their economy is in the same death spiral as the US, everybody is yelling for government money. Hell, they don't even know how to build nuclear power plants anymore. A sadass, dilapidated country looking for a fight in the ratting den.
Enjoy the fail.
