It looks like the French and Americans knew about the impending coup and let it slide. It means the coup leaders are pro-Western or neutral and France views the coup as a cleansing operation.

It turns out Mali has geopolitical importance for the West as it borders seven countries and can be a regional spoiler. Radical Salafist insurgency metastasized from Mali to Niger, Mauritania and Guinea.

Mali also has uranium and gold deposits

Their history is pretty interesting. Mali used to be called French Sudan and Sudanese Republic. Read below.

It is slowly becoming clear what is really happening in Mali. It looks like the USA cucked France and put their own people in charge. The US AFRICOM is busy at work. :)

Congrats if they decided to finally remove French G#%s out of thier futos. Lets hope the rest of W Africa follow thier example.
Bro you don't understand France, they ain't gonna let go of their colonies without a fight. They'll prop up any dictator who is in bed with them.


French airstrikes this month in support of Chad’s longtime autocratic ruler, Idriss Déby, have raised a familiar question: Has France really left behind decades of deep involvement in African politics?

France’s foreign minister this week defended the strikes against Chadian rebels before a handful of puzzled members of Parliament who wondered why the country was again propping up an ironhanded African dictator — albeit one whose relatively efficient military is considered vital in the fight against terrorists.

French officials have brushed aside these qualms, insisting that it was Mr. Déby himself who invited the French. The strikes took place between Feb. 3 and 6, destroying 20 rebel pickup trucks and stopping a rebel advance, the French military said in a statement.
