Good that they are protecting their critical national EU interests in MALI. The EU, with all it’s spare money and all. It’s really kinda funny, Europe and it’s colonial past BS is the root of half the despotism on earth.
It’s the genesis of the current map of Africa, the Mid East, The palestinian thing, etc.
And when they become an “EU” and lose the Soviet threat, they go right back to their old plan of deciding they must run the world.
We keep chasing our tails. Until Saudi Arabian funding and thinking is dealt with, islamic jihadi nutballs will pop up all over the world like some sick game of muslim whack a mole.
Saudi Arabia is the key, and must become a pariah nation. We should sieze their oilfields, refuse them any travel or diplomatic status around the world, until they allow Bibles and jews in, free their women, end slavery, and allow any Baptist to walk around mecca and tour the big mosque.
Iran’s the key more than Saudi Arabia. Notice the hands-off attitude towards Iran of all except Israeleven the USA.
You are insane. In what world would any of that be justified? Or is there simply no international law anymore whatsoever?
