Libya's Quiet War: The Tuareg Italy's Mediterranean Mass Grave: 1 day ago   25:55

In remote southwest Sahara, the indigenous Tuareg tribe — variously used and discriminated against by former strongman Muammar Qaddafi — fight for their place in a post-revolutionary Libya.

Living deep in Libya’s desert near large oil fields and lucrative smuggling routes, hundreds of miles from Libya’s capital, the Tuareg find themselves impoverished and isolated on this prized land.

Nowhere is this felt more than in the oasis town of Ubari. Here the Tuareg are pitted against former neighbors in a proxy battle for assets and power, backed by government and international interests.

VICE News travels to meet the Tuareg on the front lines of Ubari and the border town of Ghat, to find out what is really happening in this rarely visited land.

so VICE uses another Media's video, puts their own label all over it, says VICE sent people here and there for the piece - yet it's clearly a France channel 24 piece.


So if we locate their work, we can view it without the annoying VICE come-ons (promos) plastered all over the final frames. We can watch the young man joyfully dancing. That's one thing most Ismaelic people, especially men, love doing, is dancing.


Do we see this in the 'west' (I am referring to my country, the US)? no It doesn't serve Atlantic Richfield's interests to do so.

@22:46 - Essa is Arabic for Isaiah, I believe.

@14:32, in such a somber subtext, this was a bright spot: "Do you remember Hussain, the guy with the beard?" Praise God for humor! (Although obviously he was speaking as a matter of course, I found it very funny-ironic).

Just a propoganda of western media puppets of us n un nations
They cteated salafism exttemiest group for the big chaos in middle east

The Tuareg used to be huge for bringing salt to market. Before everyone had electricity and refrigerators, salt was the way to go. They were just about it. Long caravans of camels and their drivers, all the black men with their beautiful white turbans.

One sided propaganda but entertaining

at least 1500 years of historical events, such as the fall of the Western Roman empire, occupation by the Vandals, the rise of islam, Spanish empire, Ottoman empire, Italian occupation, the second world war, and many more, are responsible why Touaregs don't have their own country but VICE is blaming it all on Gadaffi.. and let's not confuse things, Gadaffi was building Libya, others destroyed it and none of the countries that share Touareg historic cultural territory wants to give them statehood..

Lol they say they aren’t Islamic extremist yet they are Constantly chanting allah hu akbar while waving around AK 47’s. They might not be as extreme as ISIS or Al-Qaeda but they are still jihadists.
Benn Conner
Countries with a low average IQ need a dictator to maintain stability and keep the county functioning. European and Asian countries have been destroyed in the past but they always manage to pick themselves up relatively quickly. The same cannot be said about Arab and African nations.
kevin moseley
Also hey guys? U ever wonder if maybe “god isn’t great?”
jameel hasan
Fight brothers of faith fight, kill each other as much as possible. ONE God, book, messenger, language, tradition and culture! Always were slaves of either Greek/Romans on one side or by Persians on other side. You deserve to be ruled by Christians only.

Way to go us backed Arab spring. Worked out great.

Italy's Mediterranean Mass Grave: Libya's Quiet War: The Tuareg 1 day ago   27:52

Share
Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

In the fourth and final episode of Europe or Die, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson arrives in Italy as the only extensive search and rescue mission in the Mediterranean is replaced with a border surveillance mission, effectively leaving thousands of desperate migrants adrift in the sea.
