At the heart of the Mali problem is the raping & cutting of Africa into new states with disparate populations crammed into bizarre borders. Africans MUST have a continental convention to re-draw, reconfigure, realign, re-do these reckless crimes of the white countries in a peaceful, rational manner OR it will be done by war as the case of the Soudan. These borders as they are currently need not be cemented forever just because white people did it. They are not sacrosanct. We need to do it.
