What a mess, this is what comes of interfering in politics in the middle east, effectively imposing new governments and religeous groups.
Weapons came from neighbouring countries supplied by thw EU against Gadaffi.
Look at the mess the US and EU have caused, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Libya, all now islamic due to interference.
It broke the bank trying to play politics witrth guns in those countries – now where will the money come from.

By making Libya a failed state France and others created the problem. Thanks Sarkozy and the others. The relatives of those killed no doubt should send him and the other great Western leaders a thank-you-card.

It’s not called danger money for nothing. US/UK/French foreign policy is a disaster area these days. Wish they’d keep their noses out of the middle east and leave them to knock seven bells out of each other.

What is the betting Mr “Uncatchable” remains uncaught?

How BIG was the explosion and how long will that knock out supplies to the EU?

Was the main name of the game hostage safety, or rather captors neutralization?

Were the hostages safety the number one priority to the Algerian authorities or was the fact Algerians were not at threat, a green light for safeties off?
