“Mr. President, we’ve completed our review of France’s operation in Mali, and we’ve decided to ask the French to stick to their core competencies: wine, lovemaking, and cheese.”

    • No,no, this was a great, daring triumph for the French.
      Islamists were taking over Mali in their cruel ways and the Mali President appealed for help.The African Union did ( as usually ) nothing. Hollande denied help but then suddenly turned around and said OK. ( Mali is a former French colony). And these brave fighter pilots gave the world a needed lesson in how to handle threatening Islamists. Right now, let´s forget those Islamist threats on future terror deeds in France.They simply must be stopped and crushed when they grab power like this. Europe has many muslims within and around and we see Islamism as a big threat to our way of living.
      When Obama realises what a trumph this is he will probably invite some French for a photo op.

      • I agree Swedishlady,
        The French have a quite a history of willing to go to sh#t-holes (former colonies) and kill & defeat threats-enemies to French interests overseas. Why to you think they keep the glorious Foreign Legion around :-) “Marche ou creve”…
        Kill & Defeat threats-enemies overseas = something our weak-willed political & military leadership needs to desperately re-learn.

  1. I remember hearing a radio transmission from remnants of the 1st. R.E.P. who had disappeared in the jungle after the battle of Dien Bien Phu asking for arms and ammo to continue fighting the Viet Minh.
    They never received any supplies and never heard from again.
    I’m showing my age now, but the program was ” The 20th. Century ” hosted by Walter Cronkite.

  2. The funny thing is, the French were a feared military up until WW II. In WW I, they stopped the Kaiser’s push cold and hammered German units mercilessly in one of the most merciless wars ever fought. The Great War was so horrible that schools started teaching children that France wasn’t worth fighting for if that was the cost. Three decades later…well, you know what happened.

  3. Right and the best way not to save a hostage is to kill him. SOC better make sure they use this in their “ways not to save a hostage” manual.
