Amidst French government-led aggression against the sovereignty of Mali, a nation in the heart of Africa with a 90% Muslim population, genuine intentions behind such repeated intervention in Muslim lands becomes ever clearer. So much were the French authorities hailed for their eagerness to topple the tyrant Muammar Al Gaddafi and ‘go home’, convincing at least a handful that their long ambitions to reinstate their colonies in Africa had faded. This is apparently not the case, as France, assisted by a number of international powers launch an indiscriminate offensive against one of the poorest nations in Africa.
