French special forces help Cameroon in hostage investigation
French special forces have arrived in northern Cameroon from their regional base in Chad to help an investigation to locate a French family kidnapped on Tuesday and moved to Nigeria, a local governor said on Wednesday.

The abduction highlights the growing risk of attacks on French nationals and interests in Africa since Paris sent forces into Mali to oust Islamist rebels occupying the country's north.

"French special forces came in yesterday from N'Djamena to help with the investigation. They left yesterday and came back today," Augustine Fonka Awa, governor of Cameroon's Far North Region told Reuters by telephone."

#1  Obviously someone did not get the memo that kidnapping French citizens is a bad idea.

Pierre and the other rough men ready to do violence from the Legion and other equally nasty and capable groups in the French Military will come knocking and they are not bringing flowers and cake.

After the Mali incursion and the attempted hostage rescue, I have to take back most things I have said about the French. Since Villapain left the foreign ministry, the attitude has become more aggressive.

The Moslem riots in France were a national turning point in their policies toward Islam and Islamonutjobs.
