    Spot on. Contray to seemingly popular myths that the European (dis)Union is all loving, and about peace, the whole recent situation has shown it to be about war, and almost neo-colonialism in many ways. The West divided up the land in Mali, and now it has come down to putting the Religiously-aligned groups down. Really it’s about expanding influence over Africa (like KONY 2012) and taking resources.
