    and of course Libya is still a failed terrorist ridden state, and a transit point to Europe of sub-Sarahan migrants

    What did I write? I also have written "Libya is a failed terrorist ridden state." many many times
    Yes I know ISIS was driven from Sirte years ago, but they all just didnt go away.
    They are a main source of regional (Maghreb/Sahel) terrorism, and arms flow across the continent still

    Default France to scale down West Africa military operations

    June 10


    France is to scale down counter-terrorism operations in the Sahel region of West Africa after eight years, President Emmanuel Macron has said.

    The existing 5,100-strong task force will be incorporated into a broader international mission, he announced.

    French forces have been operating in Mali, Chad, Mauritania, Niger, and Burkina Faso to fight militants.

    Last week, France paused operations in Mali following a military coup.

    Militants linked to al Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS) group have strengthened their grip on the region, which has become a front line in the war against Islamist extremism.

    It is also a major transit route for illegal drugs, weapons and jihadists.

    France realized Mali was unstable. There may be no stability for a while.

    BBC commentary:

    As a reminder, it was Mali which in 2013 called on France for assistance. But France now finds itself criticised for condemning the coup in Mali yet supporting the Chad army's appointment of Idriss Déby's son as the nation's new leader, which Chad's opposition parties have called an "institutional coup".

    Meanwhile Mr Macron says he cannot accept that Mali has decided to open a dialogue with the very jihadist groups that French forces in the country are fighting against.

    Is it any wonder that Africa has contributed almost ZIP to civilization over something like 1000 years?

    I say no.
