daftandbarmy said:Unlike France, our national interests as they relate to Mali are nowhere near the levels that would justify that deep a commitment, I'm thinking.
France's campaign isn't Counter-Insurgency. Sure it has elements of counter-insurgency but the reality is it's a Colonial Policing Action that is designed to preserve French business interests in the region. France doesn't care who they support, they will flip the switch on who they support at the drop of a hat if they think one of the many sides involved in the conflict(s) in the region will give them a better deal.
