France is in talks for a possible surrender. More news as it happens !
Mali islamists have tied into something they will regret.
If you read the history of France you will discover a long history of military excellence along with a few major defeats. Sadly the French officer core in WW1 was terrible. Simply horrible and needlessly killed millions and millions of Frances best and brightest. So horrific were Frances losses in WW1 that the French has no will to fight 20 years later when WW2 came around. However the French appear to reverting back to their fighting past. And also appear (unlike the USA under Bush/Obama) to have a pretty good idea of who the enemy really is. We should be happy to have them in the fight.
Q: How many Frenchies does it take to defend Paris?
A: No one knows... it’s NEVER been done.
