    Notice how the militants are described as "Islamists" but the Algerian military are not? This despite the Algerian population being 99% Muslim.

    "Is·lam·ism (s-lämzm, z-, sl-, z-)
    n.
    1. An Islamic revivalist movement, often characterized by moral conservatism, literalism, and the attempt to implement Islamic values in all spheres of life."

    Maybe, to be "fair and balanced", we should coin another similar term:

    "Chris·tian-ism (ˈkris-chənzm,ˈkrish-)
    n.
    1. An Christian revivalist movement, often characterized by moral conservatism, literalism, and the attempt to implement Christian values in all spheres of life."

    I think the Christians you're describing are already called "Dominionists." As in "God gave us dominion over the Earth and we're going to use that to bring about the apocalypse as soon as possible. Not one of us? Then we get to sit on thrones in heaven and watch you writhe in hell. We anticipate the experience will be satisfying."

    @Zazziness Maybe so, but that sounds like an Islamist attitude as well. We, the sane and non-superstitious, remain trapped between the annihilistic factions who must destroy the world in order to save it.

    I just want to know what all the calls for bombing are going to accomplish... are we bombing Algerians? They're Army is trying to capture the Mali Terrorists
    The French Mali being a former colony, have sent troop and planes
    Now why would we get in What do we get other than the bill for being dragged into yet another war in a desolate, impoverished Islamic country. Do we need the burden of a potentially lengthy fight against extremists. The French and the world community distrusts a Malian government dominated by military officials who've chased out a president and a prime minister over the last 10 months.
    Someone tell me our "end game" here

    @Dan_Tien Our interests are affected how?? If we were to focus on resolving/clarifying the environmental aspects of fracking we'd not be reliant on Arab sources. Sonatrach is a major supplier to Europe. Let the UK Fr. & Germans fight their own battle leave us out ... Some drones fine..or other support, but limited.

    The attack in Benghazi (and our failure of leadership) convinced AQIM (al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb) that they could attack Westerners with impunity.

    We need to pull out of everywhere , send no aid or billions of dollars to prop up American hating dictatorships. Spend the money saved on home defense . Respond militarily ONLY to aid our few remaining allies. Other than that complete Isolationism for about 30 years would bring America back . Oh yeah, kick the UN out & give them nada.

    As usual, the Kenyan is out there yammering about gun control while the rest of the world burns. Maybe he'll send Hillary over there with a sheet of cookies. That'll fix those nasty 'lil terrorists.

    Pull out all foreign aid to this country. Close the embassy and pull out all US personnel. Deny any US travel to and through that area. Meet with the world leaders and have every country ban all trade and assistance. Put them back in the stone age and forget about them.

    What I've long wondered about is why the impoverished nations that have oil and gas and valuable mineral have long since revolted against those that reap the rewards of these riches and do nothing to bring the quality of life for those who do the actual work up. Not to mention Nike. It is human nature to revolt against the King and in these impoverished nations, the American oil companies are seen as the real rulers. This doesn't surprise me at all.

    This could all have been prevented had the workers properly armed themselves with assault-style weapons, high-capacity magazines plus a few grenade launchers.
