Hundreds of French forces deployed to the country and began aerial bombardments to drive back the Islamic extremists

France is getting serious with the crisis in Mali.
Hundreds of soldiers, air forces, vehicles...
They seldom deploy so many forces in a single country.

To watch carefuly. These events will be interresting.
Fred, what this is is an attempt to cause people to concentrate on just how bad things are becoming in Frogland, and get M. Depardieu of the front page. This is what Collectivists do in almost every instance. Hitler did it. Stalin did it. Mussolini did it. Mao did it. Even Franco did it.

This issue just happens to be a somewhat worthy one, taken from the perspective of France's former colony. But make no mistake about the real reason why it is happening.
Of course, the Short Victorious War approach... but Hitler/Stalin/etc always attacked one country at a time, while the Uberfrog went after two countries at once. Twice the gonads, less certainty of the outcome.

Check Deb(IL)ka today.
It's a former colonial holding and thousands of French citizens live there.

They just had a citizen get killed in a Somalian raid they did yesterday in consonance with this move. They'll do well where we armed these insane idiots inadvertently(I think).

If it's successful in changing the subject, I'm a little worried that Obama will drag us into yet another quagmire ... if the gun control push fizzles or fails to provide enough distraction, it's possible that something like this might be next on the list of things that are "anything but the economy" ... it will be much easier to blame "partisan intransigence" in the artificial urgency of self inflicted shooting war.

How convenient. The Frogs get some assistance in expense sharing. After all spreading the economic misery is important with the EU on life support. Something here about the "hang together or hang separately" thinking.

And too, the blokes get to hammer out their naval procedures for possibly relieving the Falklands, which are just a hop, skip, and jump, from that side of Africa. Most convenient don't you think?

... only a matter of time ... what do you wanna bet that there are already U.S. advisers and/or spooks on the ground? Would it be paranoid of me to consider that our Administration just might deliberately compromise these guys so we can have a big juicy hostage distraction to look forward to? After the Benghazi shuffle they probably think their on a roll.
Since the US and UK are the main reasons there is an armed jihadi element in Mali, it is only right they help France, who has citizens in the thousands living there.

It's not just 'right' it's also a potentially valuable smoke screen. Bonus!!
Yes John, F.Hollande is sending an emergency military operation in Mali with 500 soldiers, fighter jets and hellicopters because a french actor bought himself a russian passport.
LOL. S2

The French Defense Ministry said on Monday that a town in central Mali had fallen to Islamist insurgents from the north, hours after Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said his country’s dramatic intervention there had succeeded in blocking a rebel advance that could have had “appalling consequences.”
..
At the same time, an Islamist leader in Mali said France had “opened the gates of hell” for all its citizens by intervening, reinforcing concerns that the far-flung military operation in Africa could inspire vengeance in mainland France.


Do we anticipate the frogs holding Paris? S13

If you will recall, I have predicted that the very first act of nuclear terrorism will be conducted against the squishy Euros, and that Paris would be the primary target. But I also stated that Rome would probably get it first, because it will be far easier to do, and it is the home of the hate Christians. I thought Paris would be a primary goal, but harder to hit.

I now take that back. I'm going to bet you Paris is going to be the number one target in the future. Remember Charles Martel? A frog, right? Remember the Frog's wars against North African Muslims? And now all this. You wait and see. I can imagine the Eiffel Tower standing in the midst of total devastation, all by itself, and glowing in the dark. Talk about a major tourist attraction. S13

I can just see the Frogs croaking about that one.
And the Brits are having a hard time getting their preventive maintenance procedures straight. Military equipment breaks down, and if it isn't maintained, it will suprise everyone at the worst possible time, even PR wise. S5
Much to their surprise the French now have to contend with Islamic rebels armed with advanced US weaponry compliments of Obama's Libya fiasco.

There was a nice article about British budget yesterday...lost the link already, unf. Basically the entire income is insufficient to pay for welfare alone.. no military can be afforded.
