#1 Thanks Fred. This is probably one of the most insightful analysis of recent North African developments that I have seen to date. Freeman is spot on!

#2 In describing likely events, perhaps, but not in his attribution of intent. The last thing the French want are more north African refugees making it to Spain and thence to France - and the destabilization he describes will generae thousands of them, if not tens of thousands, who manage to make it across the Strait. Meanwhile, Britain is slashing its military budget like mad and has no public support for such a presence on the mere dream of 'colonialism'.
