Outrageous news black out!

 Mali is in an extremely precarious position. The jihadist  forces that  France were fighting against in 2013 are regrouping.  The old idea of 'good' (MNLA)  and 'bad' (MUJAO, AQMI, Ançar Dine etc) rebels (promoted by the international opinion and France) has  been lost in very murky waters. A senior diplomat admitted to me that it is now beyond doubt  that the MNLA was aided by 'darker forces' when they vanquished the Malian army at Kidal last week.
And what does the UK Guardian talk about? They are trotting out the tired old story (however admirable)  of Abdel Kader Haidara and  the saving of Timbuktu's manuscrips.

Not even ONE word concerning the present situation has graced the pages of the Guardian since the beginning of this new crisis on the 17th of May!

This was always a remaining question mark at the time the French withdrew. What kind of strategy was that? Any fool can see it was ill thought through. A question of economics? Now they have a worse mess to sort out - if indeed they do anything.
