Algeria will deal with their problem the way they see fit, a problem sent to them by imeprialism
Sukant Chandan, Sons of Malcolm
What are Algerian FLN State and Army communicating by their military operation against these death squads at Algeria's biggest gas plant? They are saying we will deal with this problem in the way WE see fit, no matter what you imperialists think, WE will clean up the mess you are sending to us from Mali and Libya, and if that means a few white europeans get chopped in the process, well that's just collateral damage we are more than willing to tolerate. And judging from the outcry in the imperialist press, this is JUST how the white man is taking it. collateral *can* go both ways you know, it not just millions of our own Black and Brown people.
Victory to the Algerian FLN State and Army in defence of their wonderful country, they are not only defending themselves, but the whole of Maghreb, Africa and the GlobalSouth.

"Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain said his office had not been told ahead of time, an implicit criticism of the Algerian government."

The State Department would not say if the United States had been notified in advance of Thursday's operation by the Algerians, but a Pentagon official said it had not.
Some former American officials who have dealt extensively with the Algerian military said on Thursday that they were not surprised that the Algerians would stage an operation without notifying other countries, including Britain and Japan, which were among the countries whose citizens were taken hostage, but which also received no advance notice of the operation.
"This is how they operate; they like to do things unilaterally," said Rudy Atallah, a former Air Force Special Operations officer and director of African counterterrorism for the Pentagon.
Algeria's cooperation has not always been everything American officials have wished.
