Terrorism transcends intra-Maghreb divide

You probably already know about this, but the recent bomb attacks in Morocco and Algeria deserve mention. The attacks-two in Morocco and two in Algeria-killed 33 and reminded the Maghreb that "terrorist" isn't just an insult the two countries use on one another.

It's awkward to offer condolences in something like this, but I'll do it anyway. I hope both countries can deal with their terrorist problems. One way to do so would be working through an actually functional Maghreb Union, but that seems unlikely as long as the Western Sahara remains unresolved.

Incidents like these also demonstrate how ridiculous and unfair it is when Polisario is called a terrorist organization.
