Mali, Al Qaeda, and the US Neo-Colonial Agenda

Recent developments in Mali illustrate both the way in which the Unites States and its Western allies directly project military and political power, as well as the role of terrorism as a necessary pretext for imperialist, neo-colonial domination. Beginning with the establishment of AFRICOM (US Africa Command) in 2007, incorporating the war in Libya and the military coup d’etat in Mali, and up to today’s consolidation of power by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), it has become clear that the United States has managed to successfully destabilize West Africa and achieve many of its long-term strategic objectives in the region.

ROro Says:

Excellent article -it clears up one thing that was confusing me: the Tuareg/AQIM alliance in establishing Azawad.

The Cyclic Effects of Being Dumbed Down
July 16, 2012 | MentalHealth | S.Sifandos
Reality television is a genre of television we're all familiar with by now. It's a type of programming that presents purportedly unscripted dramatic or humorous situations, documents actual events, and usually features ordinary people instead of professional actors, sometimes in a contest or other situation where a prize is awarded. It appears that for the most part the more dumbed down and situationally unaware the individual characters are on these TV shows the more honour, prestige and popularity they maintain amongst viewers.

Cobalt May Be The New Mercury: Failed Surgical Implants Are Releasing Toxic Nanoparticles
July 13, 2012 | Nanotechnology | J.Hamilton
Hip replacement surgery has skyrocketed in the last few decades and surgical intervention to replace the arthritic ball and socket joints has used some questionable materials. Scientists have now discovered that the inflammation in tissue surrounding failing chromium-cobalt metal-on-metal (MOM) implants is caused by the release of cobalt ions from metal debris that wears away from replacement joints. These ions are known to cause genetic damage and will eventually lead to further medical complications.
