The Western Infowar on Mali Rebrands Terrorists as Simply Being “Extremist

The stage seems set for a French-Russian proxy war in Mali in the event that the Associated Press’ rebranding of genuine terrorists there as simply being so-called “extremist/jihadi rebels” is indeed intended to precondition the public for a Syrian redux in West Africa as was argued in this analysis.

Al Qaeda’s Malian Branch Just Declared War on Russia

The US-led Western Mainstream Media’s rebranding of Malian terrorists as “fighters/militants/rebels” (albeit extremist/jihadi ones) in the past few months since that country demanded the withdrawal of French forces was in hindsight meant to precondition the public for this very moment.
