Malians exact revenge on Muslim shopkeepers as French and Gov't troops enter Timbuktu

Malians in Timbuktu exacting revenge on Arab or Muslim stores after French and Malian troops take control of the city from Islamic forces. There are considerable mining and resource ventures that imperialist forces need to defend in what is yet another NATO war fought in defense of corporations like French nuclear energy firm Areva’s uranium mines in neighboring Niger. The Islamic fundamentalists that US capitalism nurtured and helped strengthen in its struggle with the old Soviet regime have come back to haunt them as the struggle to contain their old allies has shifted from Pakistan and Afghanistan to Saharan Africa. And Iraq is far from finished.
