No but seriously, I do consider a lot of North Africa to be part of the Middle East/North Africa region. I know Burkina Faso, being wedged beneath the Sahara Desert, is probably technically West African but I don't think the going ons in Burkina Faso are worth their own thread to be honest. I doubt anyone actually cares enough to click on a thread about some terrorist attack in that country.
I've started threads on the random Islamist nonsense going on in Mozambique and Mali and Nigeria and the Central African Republic and most of those are pretty dead anyhow, which is fine btw. People shouldn't feel compelled to fake caring or being interested in everything.
