We Must Defend the Freedom Loving Malian Junta from the Islamists
In March, 2012, the Malian military took over the government in the West African nation. The military also ousted the government in December. Now the military rulers are under threat from Islamists in the north of Mali. The U.S. is obligated to help the junta survive.
As U.S. Secretary of State pontificated at the hearings regarding the attacks in Benghazi, “We can't retreat. We have to continue to lead. We have to be engaged.” I am sure she speaks for all of us patriots about the need for perpetual war, continuing in Mali.
We join the democratic imperialists of France once more because we care about the struggle for freedom around the world. Like France, we are determined to protect people’s rights to extract resources from places such as Africa without having to share the wealth with the people in African nations. If we don’t protect Mali, neighboring nations will fall like a row of cards stacked upon one another. If you knock down one of the cards, what happens is that last card will fall down very quickly.
If Mali falls, the rest of Africa will fall like a house of cards: Algeria, Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guinea, Niger, Nigeria. After North Africa falls, France will fall, England then the United States will soon turn Islamist if we don’t act now to help the South Malinese Army. Thus, we are sending advisers into Mali to help the government defeat militant Islamists.
I am convinced that the French cannot win in Mali because of the internal political situation in West Africa. I have never talked to an expert on West African affairs, but that is beside the point. It must be the policy of the United States to help all the free peoples who resist Islamic sharia law and armed Muslim-backed forces.
As we have spread democracy to Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Argentina, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, as Ford, GE and other industrialists helped spread democracy to Nazi German, we must defend Mali from the forces of Islam.
