    The two rebel groups that seized control of the northern half of Mali announced Saturday that they have agreed to fuse their movements and work together to create an independent Islamic state on the territory they occupy, a signatory to the agreement said.

    Alghabass Ag Intalla, one of the leaders of Ansar Dine, which is fighting to create an Islamic state, confirmed that his movement was joining with the National Movement for the Liberation of the Azawad, a secular rebel group led by Tuareg separatists. They signed the agreement in the northern town of Gao on Saturday evening, and celebratory gunfire rang out in both Gao and Timbuktu, another town under their control, as fighters heard the news.

    "I have just signed an accord that will see an independent and Islamic state where we have Islamic law," Ag Intalla said.

    Child soldier's tale illustrates Mali's dirty war
    Jan 26,`13 -- The boy sits with his knees tucked under his chest on the concrete floor of the police station here, his adolescent face a tableau of fear. He's still garbed in the knee-length tunic he was ordered to wear by the Islamic extremist who recruited him.

    26 January 2013 - "If I could I would get rid of this skin. It's like I have 'terrorist' written on my forehead," said a Tuareg friend of mine - let's call him Boubou - here in Mali's capital, Bamako, as he pinched the light brown skin on his arm. "It is not safe here for us."

    You are simply seeing a further type of US invasion .
    American Political Strategy defined Nigeria as a top 10 countries target many years ago .
    Mali and other near nations are simply part of the softening up exercise the US has devised for NATO

    Though there is only one permanent U.S. military base in Africa -- in Djibouti -- smaller drone hubs exist across the continent. A key hub of the spy-drone program is stationed in Burkina Faso, one of the world's most impoverished nations; and a Predator-drone base was recently approved for Niger, an oil-rich country north of Nigeria. Several hundred Special Forces already operate in Niger, and according to the Pentagon, the drones are only meant to conduct surveillance of al-Qaida-linked organizations. Yet drone-launched missile attacks have not been ruled out.
    Don't overcomplicate what is essentially simple situation , imho .
    It's just Terrorist America on the march again and using other countries as fronts in their destabilisation programmes .
