France’s Mali Airstrikes Force Islamists To Flee Diabaly: via HuffPost http://huff.to/11JhtiD One of the bigger problems for groups resisting extremists is with poorly regimented military regulars they may just flee, as seems to have happened often in Mali. The western military model works for motivating western professional troops to fight anywhere but it may not work as well in other cultures and with inferior training. One way to correct this may be to form military groups to defend regions where they live. If they don’t have a dog in the fight it’s easier to just bail and live another day. If they are standing between their families and rampaging hordes they may be more willing to stand and fight. They may match the fanatics for commitment and then better training, defensive positions and weaponry may give an edge.
