Almost everyone in Algeria is muslim, so naturally the odds are anyone who does anything is a Muslim.
Getting a little tired of the constant “muslim boogie man” thing coming from the media. The government who allowed France to use their air bases for attacks in Mali, are also Islamists.
If it was a named terrorist group, then name it, otherwise quit trying to sweep all 3 billion Muslims into one category.

@americanguy:
Reuters needs to hire you for giving such astute analysis of situations. But of course they won’t because it’s against their stupid agenda of siding with terrorists and speaking the truth. Good job americanguy. Joyce.

@americanguy: the terms Muslim and Islamist are not synonyms. Islamist is a term for politically radical (and frequently religiously radical) Muslims. Now perhaps you might want to re-read the article.

They found a cheap way to curb French safari. Frenches just pooped themselves allover the place after unsuccessful attempt to free their spy in Somalia.

“and 60,000 barrels a day of condensate”

I always thought Condensate was just water from steam that had cooled.

Harry – Condensate is any liquid that forms from a gaseous substance. Usually it occurs due to cooling of the gas, but the change in state can also be caused to happen by an increase in pressure on the gas.
