France is not too happy about having had to intervene in Bamako, even though they were happy that American operatives joined them. France already has been given the responsibility of taking care of the northern two thirds of Mali for the last two years. The Malian forces were supposed to be able to take care of the southern third, including Bamako.
The orderlies at my mother's nursing home are nevertheless very happy that France is in charge again. It's the only army they trust.
