Yes, and we know who don't like the British Petroleum company don't we?
Could he be actively (encouraging) behind the attack on the Algerian BP gas field, me wonders?

Did gas workers in Algeria know attackers? Some of Al Qaeda terrorists 'were working for BP and could precisely plan their attack'

Some of terrorists 'given short-term contracts by the oil and gas giant'
Five of Al Qaeda operatives were 'taken alive' by Algerian army today
Witness describes one terrorist speaking with a 'perfect English accent'

If true, this is really shocking!

Obama should see if BP has broken any American laws on hiring of Islamic terrorists.
The British oil company never learn from their errs of the past. They should be severily punished with two $$trillion fine.

Up to nine Japanese nationals are also feared to have been executed.

Sarkozy and David Cameron are indirectly responsible for their deaths, for it was these two war mongers with the Saudi and Qatari oil money, who recruited the jihadist militants to depose Libya's Gadaffi.
At the height of the Libyan regime change, both Sarkozy and Cameron were warned the dangers of playing the 'jihadist cards'.

David cameron is now blaming the Africans, and not himself the North African 'al-qaeda' mess he has created.
This bird dropping needs a good spanking to get some sense into his thick skull.

Western countries can't just stay away from Africa or the Middle East.
More than a century of "cock ups" in those places is just not enough for them. New leaders always want to write a new page of history, most of the time with disastrous and durable consequences.
Mali wouldn't be split between Arab and black populations if its borders hadn't been arbitrarily drawn by the colonialists.

Well it is a huge worry to Europe if North Africa becomes unstable, North Africa acts as a barrier between factionalism in sub Saharan Africa and Europe. If this spreads en masse to North Africa, Europe becomes far more vulnerable and is quite bad news. Also Africa is extremely rich resource wise, corrupt, poverty stricken, etc which is ideal for greedy corporations who wish to pillage and lay whatever they can get their hands on.

I find it somewhat confusing, as in the western media these pirate smugglers who have sought refuge in the barren Sahara to continue their drug smuggling, human trafficking, arms dealing, cigarette smuggling etc etc etc are labeled as "Islamists" they are no more islamic than Ronald McDonald. They are pirates, organised criminals who may prey on naive individuals to join a cause maybe with the facade of "radical Islam", but these guys are nothing more than a mafia, their objective £££££

There is obviously something in it for someone, I am still waiting for Somebody to intervene and over throw Robert Mugabe indeed a true evil, criminal dictator, who has inflicted terrible crimes towards his own people yet he still is in power....funny that!!
