This is what happens it seems when peoples time for game playing has come to an end.

What they called their land gets Gangster ed...it almost as if these groups consider everything the world is about is fake and not worthy of respect or recognition.

and all anyone will do is run their mouths and won't do anything.

BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — 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.

So you are basically saying that these people shouldn't have the right to choose what religion they will follow.

"Their land gets gangster-ed" Please show me a country that didn't start that way. All countries were started either by the end of a gun or by the tip of a sword.

my short commentary was explaining this very idea that you pointed out.

France spoke against them, the rebel coalition in Northern Mali.

Mali's president was beaten unconscious earlier this week and is now in France for medical care.

People are talking but aren't backing it up...the world is showing that is not capable of fair dealing.

The world will have what they thought was theirs Gangster ed by various groups until they decide to act as if they realize what is happening.

Conquering and keep territory is supposed to be illegal under the UN Accords. I don't know if this would apply to Mali though.

let's say that it is.

what then would explain why these groups would totally disregard International Law?

my best would suggest that they feel the people they must fight are so completely corrupt that International Law will collapse anyway.

so they just carve up sections and rule them without fear of consequences.
