North Africa is in the news.


«A Large contingent of the mercenary came from the Sahel countries like Mali, Niger and one of the largest subgroups of these mercenaries is made up of Western Sahara Separatists fighter affiliated with the Polisario group, a long time ally and benefactor of Ghadafi's arms, training and financial assistance.


Witnesses have described the brutal tactics in the crackdown by Gadhafi loyalists from western sahara, Mali and Niger.
Thousands of Western sahara Separatists were enrolled in the pan-Arabic army of Gadhafi  and were later demobilized in the '90s. Many of them came back to Tindouf's Frente Polisario camps in South Western Algeria. However, many western sahara separatist fighters remained in Libya, and have enrolled in the Libyan security forces, some of them were included in the special unit in Benghazi that was used in the repression of the Benghazi movement.

A recent  grainy video clip of a captured african mercenary speaking in a discernible Arabic "hassani" dialect used by Western saharans. Witnesses described brutal tactics in the crackdown by Gadhafi loyalists from Western Sahara, Mali, Niger and other French Speaking Africans from countries further south in The continent.»

The Revelution in Egypt may be a good thing, or it may be a bad thing. Opposition leader Nour recently said that if elected. he would do away with the peace treaty with Israel. Replacing a bad president with a worse one is not progress.

Good way to resurrect an old thread. Very interssting link and given events in Egypt, timely as well I think. I need to give it a bit more thought before offering something substantial.
