Amazing: France declares war against al-Qaeda

So I just saw this article posted on Yahoo.com and was so surprised I had to comment. Where has France been these past 9 years? Doesn't it know the Brits have been fighting Al Qaeda with us and so has NATO forces. I know the President of France is reacting to the killing of a humanitarian worker from France who was killed in Niger. But Al-Qaeda has been killing people from all over the world for a long time. I'm not saying I don't appreciate our allies really being committed to this, it's just a surprise it took 9 years for a Declaration like this.

Thanks, Charles.
I feel your analysis is on the mark. And this is in a world where a major international incident or terrorism at home in the U.S. could trigger a sell off at any time.
Still expecting something in the middle East for Aug to Sept.

Thanks fir the kind words, Thor. Isn't it just amazing that France declares war now, 9 years later. It most likely has troops in NATO in Afghanistan, but maybe Prime Minister Francois Fillon forgot.
