France’s intervention in Mali is simply this: a neo-imperialist power grab dressed up in “war on terror” rhetoric.
Since the old colonial power began bombing the West African country on 11 January, the Paris government has wrapped its actions up with chivalrous language of saving the region, Europe and indeed the world from “Islamic extremism”. France, we are led to believe, was “forced to act” on behalf of the beleaguered Francophile regime in Mali’s southern capital, Bamako, to save it from falling into the hands of “Islamists” allegedly “linked to Al Qaeda”.

The largest online protest in history, known as the anti-SOPA Internet strike, took place on Jan. 18 a year ago to oppose the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act. If passed, SOPA and PIPA would have had the potential to drastically censor and limit users’ access to online information, as well as give the U.S. government more power to police the Internet. The bills were backed by corporations in the entertainment industry.

Ever since the Bahraini revolution broke out in February 2011, international news channels have covered it differently according to their geo-political priorities.
Western news channels have covered the events very sporadically and so have Arab news channels. Yet these same channels have covered unrest in Syria and Libya very closely.
