“France under jihadist threat”: French media promotes the war on Mali

by Cem Ertür Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 at 12:14 PM

“Military intervention by France and the other Western powers in Mali - under the guise of “defeating terrorism” - is a bridgehead for Western capital and corporations, not only into a resource-rich country, but into a large chunk of the entire African continent.”

“Military intervention by France and the other Western powers in Mali - under the guise of “defeating terrorism” - is a bridgehead for Western capital and corporations, not only into a resource-rich country, but into a large chunk of the entire African continent.”  [excerpt from Finian Cunningham’s “Preplanned Mali invasion reveals France's neo-colonialistic agenda” ]

excerpts from:  Hollande steps up France security over Mali and Somalia

BBC News, 13 January 2013



French President Francois Hollande has ordered security stepped up around public buildings and transport because of military operations in Africa.

He was responding to the risk of Islamist attack after French forces attacked militants in Mali and Somalia.  [...]

France's anti-terrorism alert system known as "Vigipirate" is being reinforced immediately, with security boosted at public buildings and transport networks, particularly rail and air. Public gatherings will also be affected.

The alert will remain at red, the second-highest level at which emergency counter-attack measures are put in place.

The "struggle against terrorism" required all necessary precautions to be taken in France itself, the president said.
