The Idleness of African Leadership in Mali

Ousmane Gueye on the site Mondoblog writes [fr] about the slow deployment of African troops in northern Mali :

If we were to judge the impact of the intervention in Mali by the jubilant euphoria of liberated populations, then it should be obvious that by deploying so slowly, African countries failed Mali once again ….. All the posturing by African heads of state and yet they could not achieve a single action of their own to slow down the Islamists in Mali.
