An American expert believes that the policy of the West towards African states is one of “genocide,” and not allowing them to have stability and economic growth. On January 12, France intervened in Mali by launching an air offensive under the pretext of halting the advance of militants. France announced that it would more than triple the number of its soldiers in Mali from 800 to 2,500. Chaos broke out in Mali after President Amadou Toumani Toure was toppled in a military coup on March 22, 2012. The coup leaders said they mounted the coup in response to the government’s inability to contain the Tuareg rebellion in the north of the country, which had been going on for two months.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Lawrence Freeman, with the Executive Intelligence Review in Washington, to further shed light on the issue. The video also offers the opinions of two additional guests David Lawley, a journalist and filmmaker in London, and Eric Draitser, who is the founder of stopimperialism.com in New York.
