Burkina Faso, West Africa has some of the most dangerous borders in the world–with Mali and Niger as its neighbors it’s only a matter of time before the chaos spills over. Burkina Faso has enjoyed peaceful times even at the heights of the War in Mali, but recently Islamic Terror Groups (ITGs) operating in Mali are starting to gain support inside Burkina Faso.

He is pushing his agenda and campaign hard in the region, though they use Mali as base and staging area for assaults on Burkina Faso.
