Was France at some kind of war with Mexico ?

Florence Cassez - Mexico

The good news is, there neither is, nor was, a war between France and Mexico. A French lady had been in jail in Mexico for 7 years, she was fred and could fly back to Paris and meet President François Hollande for a debriefing, and the French TV’s talked a lot about her 36 hours without knowing much about the story behind. Viva Mexico, and vive la France, that’s it.
