French Airstrikes In Mali...

"??? Where is our airstrikes in the East China Sea???"


100 militants, French pilot killed Mali fighting

French Airstrickes on Killing Spree

BAMAKO: Malian troops backed by French gunships killed around 100 Islamist fighters in the battle to recapture the key town of Kona, a senior officer said on Saturday.

“We have claimed dozens of casualties, even around 100 among Islamist ranks in Konna,” said Lt. Ousmane Fane, from the regional command, told Agence France Presse (AFP).

France admitted losing a pilot when his helicopter was shot down during an air strike near the central town of Mopti  in support of Mali ground troops trying to stem a push south by rebels who control much of the north.

“In this intense fighting, sadly, one of our pilots ... was fatally injured. He was evacuated to the nearest medical center before dying of his wounds,” French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told a news conference.
He said France had sent special forces into Mopti to prepare the ground and later sent “several hundred” troops into Bamako on Friday to safeguard the capital.

French forces carried out a second day of air strikes against the rebels in Mali on Saturday and sent troops to protect the capital Bamako in an operation involving several hundred soldiers, Le Drian said.

France had additional Rafale fighter jets on standby to be deployed, Le Drian said. President Francois Hollande was due to hold a meeting with defense officials at 3 p.m. (1400GMT).

Le Drian said a raid by French forces in Somalia to try to rescue a French secret agent held hostage there since 2009 was not linked to the Mali intervention. The hostage, Denis Allex, is believed to have died in the raid, along with one soldier, he said. A second soldier was missing.

Niger, meanwhile, said said it will send 500 soldiers to join an international military campaign in Mali led by West African regional bloc ECOWAS to quash advances by Islamist rebels.

“We are sending a battalion of around 500 individuals under the ECOWAS plan,” Foreign Minister Mohamed Bazoum told Reuters on Saturday.



Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

UK to aid France...


                       



The Gang of Three Is At It Again

Britain has announced it will provide France with logistical support during its Mali intervention as French forces stepped up airstrikes against Islamist militants fighting government troops in the North African country.
The British prime minister has welcomed France’s decision to intervene in the North African country to help the Malian army halt a rebel advance towards the capital Bamako.


"The Prime Minister has agreed that the UK will provide logistical military assistance to help transport foreign troops and equipment quickly to Mali," David Cameron's office said in a statement on Saturday, adding that London is not going to deploy British personnel in a combat role.

Another young degenerated brainwashed dumb born from the last rain who dont know what's he talking about.

Before opening your mouth, see what france and german became 60 years after being the worst ennemies. Those who call for war are NEVER those who die at war, nore they are those who give life or save life.

Youd never lived the war, you talk about war exactly as all those young nationalist garbages, for you it's just a video game.

Anything that doesn't fall under Islam "is not good. Man should only worship Allah," Mohamed Alfoul said of the mausoleums, which the armed Islamists consider blasphemous.
The vandalism of the Muslim saints' tombs in the UNESCO World Heritage site came a day after other Islamists in the northern city of Gao announced they had amputated two people's hands.
The continued strict application of sharia law is seen as a sign that the armed Islamist groups are unfazed by the UN's green light for the African-led military operation.

I just love "friction", don';t you?

"Friction" generates "great heat", which in turn generates "sparks", which in turn "have the potentials of igniting delicate and explosive situation", don't you agree?

Finally -- an opportunity of a lifetime for us China Boys to break from the cacoon that we had weaved as a protective shield against deadly predators as we develop from the larvae stages to the fully developed spread-your-wings life form we are today so...

"Why not 'THE DEPENDENT UPON WESTERN SUPPORT FOR ITS SURVIVAL RIGHT WING JAPANESE ESTABLISHMENT" as a specimen of our long awaited breakout???"

Go for it, Beijing!!!  You definitely have my blessings if no one elses!!!
