The UK prime minister has heralded the start of a decades-long struggle involving (CIA-run) Islamist terrorism in Algeria and beyond.
David Cameron warns of decades-long struggle against Islamist ...
Cameron said the attack was a “stark reminder” of the continuing (CIA-NATO-run) terrorism and vowed to use Britain's chairmanship of the G8 to ensure that it was right at the top of the international agenda.
“This is a global struggle (to grab mineral wealth) and it will require a global response. It will require a response that is about years, even decades, rather than months,” he said.
“What we face is an extremist, Islamist, (CIA-linked) terrorist group. Just as we had to deal with that in Afghanistan (source of our heroin) so the world needs to come together to deal with this threat in north Africa (where there is lots of oil and gas)."
According to Tony Cartalucci (By Design: French Mali Invasion Spills into Algeria)
Algeria, which has lots of oil, is now being targeted by NATO.
"As far back as August of 2011, Bruce Riedel out of the corporate-financier funded think-tank, the Brookings Institution, wrote Algeria will be next to fall, where he gleefully predicted success in Libya would embolden radical elements in Algeria, in particular AQIM.
"Between extremist violence and the prospect of French airstrikes, Riedel hoped to see the fall of the Algerian government.
"Ironically Riedel noted:
"Algeria has expressed particular concern that the unrest in Libya could lead to the development of a major safe haven and sanctuary for al-Qaeda and other extremist jihadis.
"And thanks to NATO, that is exactly what Libya has become – a Western sponsored sanctuary for Al-Qaeda.
"AQIM’s headway in northern Mali and now French involvement will see the conflict inevitably spill over into Algeria.
"It should be noted that Riedel is a co-author of “Which Path to Persia?” which openly conspires to arm yet another US State Department-listed terrorist organization (list as #28), the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) to wreak havoc across Iran and help collapse the government there – illustrating a pattern of using clearly terroristic organizations, even those listed as so by the US State Department, to carry out US foreign policy"....

"The regions that are now Libya, Algeria, Mali, and the Ivory Coast all face reconquest by the French and Anglo-Americans, with French troops literally occupying the region and playing a pivotal role in installing Western-friendly client regimes.
"Also notice Syria too, was a French holding – now under attack by US-British-French funded, armed, and backed terrorists – the same terrorists allegedly being fought in Mali and now Algeria.
"Meanwhile, these very same terrorist forces continue to receive funding, arms, covert military support, and diplomatic recognition in Syria, by NATO, and specifically the US and France who are both claiming to fight the “Free Syrian Army’s” ideological and very literal allies in North Africa.
"In reality, Al Qaeda is allowing the US and France to intervene and interfere in Algeria, after attempts in 2011 to trigger political subversion was soundly defeated by the Algerian government.
"Al Qaeda is essentially both a casus belli and mercenary force, deployed by the West against targeted nations. It is clear that French operations seek to trigger armed conflict in Algeria as well as a possible Western military intervention there as well, with the Mali conflict serving only as a pretense."
