Fwance: We'll Beat al-Qaeda in Mali in Week
French forces led an all-night bombing campaign over a minuscule Malian town, not even big enough to appear on most administrative maps, in an effort to dislodge the Islamic extremists who seized the area, including its strategic military camp. Meanwhile, a convoy of 40 to 50 armed trucks carrying French troops crossed into Mali from Ivory Coast, where they were stationed, as France prepares for a possible land assault. French President Francois Hollande launched an attack on Mali's rebels, who are linked to al Qaeda, last week after the rebels began advancing south. France's action preempted a United Nations-approved plan for a military operation in Mali, which was expected to start about nine months from now. Hollande decided a military response could not wait that long.You know, the French eventually did figure out who the enemy is. That's good for something I guess. Vive La France! Obama has also committed to help Hollande clean up the mess in Mali. I mean after all they made it. We can't have it turning out like say Libya now can we?

No not really, we didn't take out dictators without a plan of occupation and helping Iraq help itself.
Whereas Obama failed to get an Iraq status of forces agreement. Then he took off with France on a damned fool crusade to remove Qadaffi with no plan to deal with the aftermath, thus Syria and Mali and several other fronts are booming while Obama smiles and talks about disarming the domestic public.
That man is retarded, Never his mind on where he was. What he was doing.
Of course I don't totally disagree, I'd have just Nuked Kubul and Quetta maybe Instanbul and left Saddam where he was then went home and issued new target list for next time.
If gasoline Obama's brains were, not enough to run halfway around the inside of a Cheerio on a a piss ant's motorcycle he has.

The French regulars didnt do too well in Algeria or Viet Nam.
Whats their real purpose or objective now I wonder?
And where I wonder isthat "White Devil" to rant about me being both a "zioshit" and a "racist" for criticising the French and drone on and on about his theory of skin colours in conflict, "brown skins" versus "white skins" aided by "black skins"? I must admit I got a bit carried away over the French but being called a racist by a racist tends to make me amplify my position.
