Press TV has conducted an interview with Dan Glazebrook, political analyst, to further discuss the issue. The program also offers the opinion of an additional guest: Ali Bahaijoub, editor of NorthSouth Magazine. What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Do you support this as a legal intervention, the President of Mali had asked for it , the French have citizens in Mali and they simply had to go in, the Africans weren't ready?

Glazebrook: No I think we have to be very wary at taking the statements of the Western powers that they are there to stabilize the situation in Mali, we shouldn't take that at face value .

The Western powers have proven to be liars time and time again and if we look at the results of their interventions, they have consistently been to create failed states not stabilized countries. They have turned Iraq into a failed state, Afghanistan, Libya and destabilization never stops at the borders of that they have targeted.

Press TV: But look at what Imam Mahmoud Dicko, the most senior Islamic representative in that country says thank God for France, these people were trying to import something foreign and tell us how to live Islam. Isn't he the person we should understand and respect?

Glazebrook: Well there were a lot of people saying come on NATO in Libya and many of them now very much regret what they called for because they can see that actually NATO's intervention hasn't made Libya to a better place.

It has created the rule of the very same death squads and militias that are now roaming around Mali, in Libya. Do not forget that who caused the problem in Mali, where did these militias come from? They were armed and equipped just yesterday in terms of historical terms, just two years ago they were created by the French and the British-- armed, trained, funded by the British, French and Americans. They have now destabilized Mali and what they are hoping to do is continue the destabilization into Algeria.
