What interests does France have there? Ivory? Chocolate? I seriously don’t know much about this.

"...northern Mali has been overrun by Islamist rebels organised under the banners of the Ansar Dine, the Movement for Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO) and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM)."
So the French Army is fighting Muslims in Mali... I hope they get lots of practice so they can go home and slaughter the Mohammedan scum that invaded France. The backlash will start in France.
Did each French soldier receive their government-issued surrender flag?

I hope this doesn't end up like Dien Bien Phu, and us stepping in to finish the job; as we did in Viet Nam. -Tom
Gee, I wonder if they packed enough white surrender flags that they’re famous for using when the going gets tough?
What if there’s no quiche & wine available?

How long before stuff starts getting blown up in Paris?
I read once that one wag opined that the French had only won one of its many, many wars.
And that was the French Revolution (in which it fought itself.)
