Yeah, thanks USA. "rolls eyes".

Wow. Those American soldiers have French FAMAS deadly assault murder rifle weapons.

I was told the French are always surrendering. Why would the need guns for that?

Well, what would we drop while surrendering if we hadn't guns?

zedster: The US does have at least two good size units of American trained forces in Africa in Kenya and Uganda strengthening the AU forces and we have supplied them but this was manly a French effort with air lift help from the UK. Lets not take away the fact that French President Francois Hollande has pushed for the peacekeeper effort against strong opposition at home and within the EU. He risked his government on this move, Obama has risked pretty little. This article is grasping at best.


Yeah France has been the lead on this. It's insulting to one's intelligence that think progress wants to credit Obama or the US.

Not that avoiding this conflict was hard or anything. CAR avert any conflict by threatening to turn the country around and going home.
