Is #France already at war again ? In #African Sahara again ?

hollande_guerre_liberation

Some French planes seem to be bombing some rebels in Sahara on behalf of the government of Mali, with the strong moral support of the United Nations, with African, Maghreb and other international partners. Is France art war in Western Africa ?

A French boat seem to be cruising somewhere close to Somalia and France is said to have lost some soldiers and a hostage there is a rescue operation that failed. Would France be fighting something or someone in non French speaking Eastern Africa ?

On the other hand, some say, that due to high housings costs in Paris and low availability of free land in the countryside (plus snow at night on French airports), in view of diplomatic issues in Syria and losses in translation in Somalia, the French may have decided to resettle their refugees from Afghanistan in friendly Northern Mali, in the middle of nowhere in the deserts of Africa, where the climate is better in winter, and where there is a lot of hot sand and available housing, now that the terrorists have killed and expelled most regular inhabitants over the last 9 months of “open bar” or so in what could have been Azawad, if not simply Mali, but has tuned into something else. Could a recent French political initiative make technical sense, for a change ?

But there it cannot be as simple as that … with France, there must be something more (or less) glamorous.

Something more … French

But what else ?

France Mali Fighting

Some Franco-French post-Françafrican Francofolies ? A new “certaine idée de la France en Afrique” ?

Or just some Franco-French Gauloiseries ? (Some say, the second biggest Malian town, after Bamako, is in Paris suburbs)

Anyway, the entrepreneurs who have not left the country over the last decades seem afraid. Is France struggling against French creators and businesspeople with a view to attract foreign investors ? Is France at war against French success in France ?

The few artists and other French sportspeople not yet living in America because of the climate, Switzerland for the better snow, London due to the great weather, china for the better football or Belgium fort the better beer, and not stuck to France for subventions or health care are escaping to Russia or looking for Qatari free zones in Paris, now. Is France at war against French culture and sport ?

And some political activists are brutally murdered in Paris downtown.

Maybe the government’s spokeperson could tell why there were no fireworks in, Paris for New Year if France is at war, what war, where war, why war, and against what or whom ?

#Amour et #Haneke, toujours l’Amour et Haneke à #Cannes … : That’s All, Folks !

Some like the sun more hot than the stars in Cannes, the people more glamorous than oldschool politicians in France and the film more fun than real life in the world. But nobody desserved the 2012 Palme d’Or more than Haneke, that’s all, folks.

All People prefer Blond(e)s … and Sun, Sex and Fun in May (be it in Cannes, Paris or … Kabul)

May weather is getting normal at last … at least in Cannes and Paris. Some other things remain quite strange and disturb (old ? all ?) people at places of the world including Kabul, but let’s enjoy Casual Friday & life under the sun as long as it lasts.

Food and Weather may seem Strange in #Paris, but French Diplomacy and Government are just #Normal

No panic, no need to close all French Facebook accounts to protect the IPO from the commies. Let G8 Leaders, diplomats and NATO people talk together before anybody decides to start a new war, be it economic, electronic or whatever new kind.
