According to reports, militants from Boko Haram in Nigeria, as well as fighters from Pakistan and Afghanistan, are swelling the ranks of AQIM (al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb) in Mali, which is fast becoming a base, training area, and arms depot for international terrorists:
…residents and rebels in the north [of Mali] report an influx of militants from Nigeria, a country battling an Islamic insurgency known as Boko Haram. It isn’t clear how many Nigerians have joined the battle with the Tuareg—estimates range from dozens to hundreds—or whether any are linked to Boko Haram. Fighters have also arrived from Pakistan and Afghanistan, according to officials in nearby Niger, Malian witnesses, and separatist soldiers…Fighters on all sides in Mali have benefited from a flood of weapons and mercenaries after the end of last year’s Libyan conflict.
The humanitarian war in Libya continues to have anything but humanitarian results throughout the northern part of Africa, thanks to who we’ve called the goo-goo genocidaires:
the willfully blind reformers, civil society activists, clergy, students . . . unreflective, self-righteous ‘activists’ [who] thought that to espouse peace was the same thing as to create or safeguard it.
These people remain among the world’s most dangerous. Because of their foolishness and ignorance, people die and bad situations become worse.
