I am truly saddened to hear about the developing crisis in Mali.
Although opinion on the merits of the foreign intervention is divided, I fear that it may not solve the problem and result in the death of many innocent civilians. Only time will tell if the right decision was taken. In the end, only a political solution will bring about lasting peace.
My immediate concern is for the numerous innocent casualties and victims - the situation may get a lot worse before it starts to improve.
No one seems to have a ready made solution, which makes the situation more depressing.
I hope and pray Mali returns to peace and stability soon.
