Thanks to NATO, Libya has become – a Western sponsored sanctuary for Al-Qaeda. AQIM’s headway in northern Mali and now French involvement will see the conflict inevitably spill over into Algeria.



GLOBAL RESEARCH


Exactly as predicted, the ongoing French “intervention” in the North African nation of Mali has spilled into Algeria – the next most likely objective of Western geopolitical interests in the region since the successful destabilization of Libya in 2011.
In last week’s “France Displays Unhinged Hypocrisy as Bombs Fall on Mali” report, it was stated specifically that:
“As far back as August of 2011, Bruce Riedel out of the corporate-financier funded think-tank, the Brookings Institution, wrote “Algeria will be next to fall,” where he gleefully predicted success in Libya would embolden radical elements in Algeria, in particular AQIM. Between extremist violence and the prospect of French airstrikes, Riedel hoped to see the fall of the Algerian government. Ironically Riedel noted:
Algeria has expressed particular concern that the unrest in Libya could lead to the development of a major safe haven and sanctuary for al-Qaeda and other extremist jihadis.
And thanks to NATO, that is exactly what Libya has become – a Western sponsored sanctuary for Al-Qaeda. AQIM’s headway in northern Mali and now French involvement will see the conflict inevitably spill over into Algeria. It should be noted that Riedel is a co-author of “Which Path to Persia?” which openly conspires to arm yet another US State Department-listed terrorist organization (list as #28), the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) to wreak havoc across Iran and help collapse the government there – illustrating a pattern of using clearly terroristic organizations, even those listed as so by the US State Department, to carry out US foreign policy.”
Now, it is reported that “Al Qaeda-linked” terrorists have seized American hostages in Algeria in what is being described by the Western press as “spill over” from France’s Mali operations.
“As Algerian army helicopters clattered overhead deep in the Sahara desert, Islamist militants hunkered down for the night in a natural gas complex they had assaulted Wednesday morning, killing two people and taking dozens of foreigners hostage in what could be the first spillover from France’s intervention in Mali.”
The Wall Street Journal, in its article, “Militants Grab U.S. Hostages in Algeria,” reports that:
“Militants with possible links to al Qaeda seized about 40 foreign hostages, including several Americans, at a natural-gas field in Algeria, posing a new level of threat to nations trying to blunt the growing influence of Islamist extremists in Africa.As security officials in the U.S. and Europe assessed options to reach the captives from distant bases, Algerian security forces failed in an attempt late Wednesday to storm the facility.”
The WSJ also added:
“Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said the U.S. would take “necessary and proper steps” in the hostage situation, and didn’t rule out military action. He said the Algeria attack could represent a spillover from Mali.”
And it is military action, both covert and incrementally more overt, that will see the West’s extremist proxies and the West’s faux efforts to stem them, increasingly creep over the Mali-Algerian border, as the old imperial maps of Europe are redrawn right before our eyes.
….
Meanwhile, these very same terrorist forces continue to receive funding, arms, covert military support, and diplomatic recognition in Syria, by NATO, and specifically the US and France who are both claiming to fight the “Free Syrian Army’s” ideological and very literal allies in North Africa.
In reality, Al Qaeda is allowing the US and France to intervene and interfere in Algeria, after attempts in 2011 to trigger political subversion was soundly defeated by the Algerian government. Al Qaeda is essentially both a casus belli and mercenary force, deployed by the West against targeted nations. It is clear that French operations seek to trigger armed conflict in Algeria as well as a possible Western military intervention there as well, with the Mali conflict serving only as a pretense.

  2. As usual, the average person pays for our politician’s political follies in very tangible ways.

    In the aftermath of the hostage crisis, Tom Price, global commodity analyst for UBS said $100 a barrel was “a/ possibility” for U.S. crude futures this week and any move higher may spill over to Brent crude, lifting that benchmark possibly beyond $115.

  3. American Forces Press Service

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, 2013 – The nation’s thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured in the terrorist attack in Algeria, and the blame for the tragedy rests with the terrorists who carried it out, President Barack Obama said today.

    In a statement, the president said the United States condemns the terrorists’ actions “in the strongest possible terms.”

    “We have been in constant contact with Algerian officials and stand ready to provide whatever assistance they need in the aftermath of this attack,” Obama said. “We also will continue to work closely with all of our partners to combat the scourge of terrorism in the region, which has claimed too many innocent lives.”

    The attack is another reminder of the threat posed by al-Qaeda and other violent extremist groups in North Africa, the president said.
    “In the coming days, we will remain in close touch with the government of Algeria to gain a fuller understanding of what took place so that we can work together to prevent tragedies like this in the future,” he added.

    During a news conference in London today, Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond said both of their governments remain in close contact with Algerian officials, and are working to establish firm details of the assault, kidnappings and murders that took place at a remote natural gas facility in Algeria.
    Panetta confirmed Americans were among those held hostage, but he said the possible number of U.S. deaths remains unclear. He pledged continued close consultation with Algerian authorities, and emphasized the attackers bear full and sole responsibility for all loss of life.

    "Just as we cannot accept terrorist attacks against our cities, we cannot accept attacks against our citizens and our interests abroad,” he said. “Neither can we accept an al-Qaida safe haven anywhere in the world.”

    Since 9/11, Panetta said, “We’ve made very clear that nobody is going to attack the United States of America and get away with it.” The nation and its allies and partners have fought terrorists in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen, and
    will take the fight to North Africa as well, he said.

  16. Hoodie Horse Rapist Caught on Camera in Florida

    A horse rapist is on the loose in Florida!

    Abby Conder, who breeds, shows and sells miniature horses, says that since May, her mini-horses have been under attack. One of her horses "had been raped both by a man and by several objects. She was so hematomed on the back and so bloody, that she looked like they put her whole bottom through a garbage disposal," as reported by Tampa Bay's News 10.

    Bodily fluids were found inside the horse by the vet, but Marion County Sheriff's officers told Conder that they need to catch the man in the act.

    Conder says she bought a guard dog, but he was beaten to death, so they set up surveillance cameras with a live Internet feed. On Saturday, they caught a man checking out the horses and then bringing one to a fence, tying it up and abusing it.
