That began when they decided to invade Iraq and bring democracy and western way of life to the heathens, one way or the other whether they like it or not. Good for the French GDP too. France is broke. Mali has lots of minerals .

@Striving-Young & @mountainrose and all the other “liberal apologists”: So, you’d rather have an Islamic takeover of Mali and all of Africa, with their explicit goal of waging jihad on all the “infidels” of Europe and the US, all in the name of your twisted sense of “fairness”?
You guys are not only naive, you’re probably worse. You’re probably stooges for these same Islamists, at least unwittingly, you fools.
