When the French airstrikes began, the leader of the terrorists challenged French soldiers to come on the ground and “fight like men”. Alright then, the French are on the ground and the terrorists are scurrying like eunuchs.

Where is Slammy? The terrorists in Mali need you to cheer them on too!

Go Mali and France!

Gao, the city in northern Mali that was liberated yesterday, is mispronounced in your video. “Gaow” not “Go”

Yeah, get real. Should French pay the troops staying there forever? French people don’t even know those so-called AQIM have been inside French for trainings some time ago.

The Malian Muslims are celebrating being liberated by their former Christian colonial masters the French from Sharia-observing Islamists. Many are happily flounting the tenets of the Muslim religion to show their disdain for Islamic Law (Sharia). The population of Mali is 99% Muslim, yet they do not desire to live according to the teachings of Islam based upon the Quran and the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Is there an irony here that only I see?

Military experts fear they could carry on a grueling hit-and-run guerrilla war. -NO KIDDING, DUH!
Malians! do not get complacent. Alqaida WILL be back, after regrouping and rearming. Ain’t guerrila warfare grand. These villages, like Gao, need to train and arm their own militias. At least they can fight back when Ackmed returns, and HE WILL!
