    France Declares War on al-Qaida After Aid Worker Beheaded
    Updated: 6 hours 17 minutes ago

    PARIS (July 27) -- France has declared war on al-Qaida, and matched its fighting words with a first attack on a base camp of the terror network's North African branch, after the terror network killed a French humanitarian worker it took hostage in April.

    The declaration and attack marked a shift in strategy for France, usually discrete about its behind-the-scenes battle against terrorism.

    "We are at war with al-Qaida," Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Tuesday, a day after President Nicolas Sarkozy announced the death of 78-year-old hostage Michel Germaneau. The humanitarian worker had been abducted April 20 or 22 in Niger by al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, and was later taken to Mali, officials said.

    Even more amazing, Al Qaeda hasn't won yet.

    Kudos to France. Hope they keep doing a good job.

    France knows one hell of a lot more about terrorism than the USA does.

    Paris has been the place where out of power nationalist take refuge for at least 200 years.

    As a consequence they've been dealing with all sorts of disreputable people and a lot of terroristic violence in that city, too.

    Do not piss off the Franks.

    They are quite capable of being nasty imperialistic sons a bitches whenever they choose to be.

    The French foreign legion is basically where mercs go when they run out of other options, and those guys are not somebody to mess with.

    they need to fight their own battles, 3000 dead Americans didn't motivate them to help. One beheaded Frenchman set them on fire. Go Frogs.
