Over here. Nothing much to say, actually, except that it's kind of cool to be able to use the phrase TIMBUKTU IS LIBERATED.
Shout it from the rooftops. If anyone asks you why, say it's because Timbuktu is now no longer a dagger pointed at the heart of Ouagadougou.
Typical bloody French. Anglo-Americana has been rampaging around for the past decade with nothing much to show but a huge pile of skulls. I know the French are involved in Afghanistan, but it's not like they're very keen or anything. And then they swan in and liberate Timbuktu.
