    ANALYSIS-Libya's war upsets the neighbours | News by Country | Reuters

    "The Sahelo-Saharan strip is already insecure, with the activities of terrorists and drug traffickers. Now we seeing the return of young men with no source of employment but who know how to handle weapons," said Ahmet Haidara, a parliamentarian in Niger's north, told Reuters.

    "We didn't want this war but now we have to deal as best we can with the negative consequences," said Haidara, who heads a Tuareg committee in contact with Libya's new National Transitional Council rulers.


    INFLUX OF ARMS

    Aside from arms coming back with the Tuaregs, governments in the region believe trafficked weapons from Libya have fallen into the hands of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) allies behind a series of kidnappings of Westerners and other crime.

    "Businesses operating in the region will face increased criminality and insecurity in the coming months as a result of the influx of arms and armed individuals or groups," forecast Roddy Barclay, Africa analyst at London-based Control Risks



    So just like in Afghanistan, you can bet in a decade or 2 if not sooner you'll be seeing the U.S. at war with terrorists in the area shooting at us with weapons we gave them during the current War in Libya.

    There hasn't been a single modern president who's had a clue what he's doing in the ME.

    At least Libya is nice and flat. Easier for the drones and bombers to take out nutter camps than the mountains and valleys of afghanistan.

    There are a lot of assumptions being made and you know what you can do with assumptions. So far, the Arab Spring has been going just fine. Thank you, President Obama. If you don't like how omelets are made, get out of the kitchen. IMO, he's making good on the promise of the Cairo speech and retroactively earning his Nobel. :clap2:

    Good point.

    A foreign policy that leads to creating a hotbed for terrorist activity and terrorist arm trafficking is worthy of a nobel peace prize.



    Spreading peace by arming Al-Qaeda, sounds perfectly rational to me.
