French Mission in Mali Must Be Short
The National, The National
It is unsettling to see the former colonial power intervening this way, more than 50 years after Mali became independent. But François Hollande, the French president, had evidently decided that the Islamists had to be stopped and that Malian and African forces were not up to the job. It is hard to fault Mr Holland on either conclusion.
