4. This is a neocolonial adventure I can get behind purely because
The "Islamists" are destroying the cultural heritage of the (Islamic) Mali empire, the only precolonial libraries in Sub Saharan Africa. Of course the (racist) French soldiers probably don't care about those world heritage sites... but at least it will save Timbuktu (for all we know they've demolished half of Timbuktu, an Al Quaeda affiliated party took over there and started killing people, banned music and secular writing, killing musicians and burning thousandf year old books)
