Paddy Ashdown: “the conflict in Mali is Islam vs. Islam”

Paddy Ashdown, the former Liberal Democrat leader, has penned a fantastic piece for today’s edition of The Times on the current conflict in Mali.

In it, he argues that the War on Terror in its current form “won’t be won by Western armies, but by helping moderate Muslim governments defeat extremism”. Click here to read it – as a former Royal Marine and Army Intelligence officer, and UN High Representative for Bosnia & Herzegovina, Paddy’s opinion on how to contain and defeat Islamic terrorism and insurgency is well-worth taking in.
