"I hereby determine that an unforeseen emergency exists that requires immediate military assistance to France"

Obama directs $10M to fight terrorists in Africa
By Justin Sink - 08/11/14 - The Hill

President Obama is directing $10 million in foreign aid to France to assist in counterterrorism operations on the African continent.

The assistance from the Pentagon will help French efforts to target terror groups in Mali, Niger and Chad, the president said in a memo to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Secretary of State John Kerry.

"I hereby determine that an unforeseen emergency exists that requires immediate military assistance to France in its efforts to secure Mali, Niger, and Chad from terrorists and violent extremists," Obama wrote.
The aid is likely intended to support a French counterterrorism operation, codenamed Barkhan, that launched last month in partnership with the governments of several African allies.

They Need Us In Africa (Kony2012)

Anyone remember Kony2012?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kony_2012

That was a massive peice of war propaganda intended to get American's interested in intervening into Africa. Well, it blew up in their faces.

Oh but look, we're in Africa anyway..

Then suddenly we read how France is supporting

The Rothschlid/obama-satoro genocide bombing of IRAQ.

IzUnReal needs a controlled opposition so they have created, trained, and no launched a genocide against Iraq again.

But its ok because FRANCE supports Obama bombing and murdering the people living in Iraq.

Why does France support this genocide? Because its another Rothschild puppet state. Just grease the skids with a little Rothschild zionist out of thin air counterfeit debt issue us dollars and wah la, we have media saying its ok to bomb Iraq because France agrees.

I just cant wait until these despot puppets have their strings cut.

Don't hold your breath on the French.

Don't hold your breath on the French.

The more they get divided, plundered, and raped by perverted law, the more my countrymen keep asking for it, without a freaking clue :

socialism.

They're a people of envious retards or beggars, by now. Only a few are at the top, as the ruling corrupt intelligentsia and monster bureaucracy - media, academia, public services. Or, public looters, rather.

The fish head is first to get rotten. Then, the body must follow.

The best I can wish them is to get hurt again for good, really hurt, instead of that exhausting slow boil they've put themselves into, since De Gaulle.

Then, they might wake up, finally. MAYBE.

Not even sure. :/

No doubts the american tax payer will appreciate the gesture.

** to each master his own poodle, right?

Both of these disgust me utterly.

France will take the

10 million and surrender. But maybe Hollande can use the 10 mill to buy some hookers and give them the same treatment he has given his countrymen.

Obama is a total fraud

He does this after toppling Gaddafi and turning Libya into the biggest breeding ground for terrorists on the planet.

Not stopping there, Obama doubles down and starts arming the Kurds, who aren't even a country. Bet Turkey will love that move. /s

This move is all about fulfilling the PNAC neo-con plan to create a Kurdish homeland.

Well,

I have suffered from emergencies as of late.
I had my 401-k confiscated
I have had the note on my house passed along for over 5 years,now in foreclosure,which so far,there is no recourse for,as the only ones who know where it is,are the hounds.
I have had financial hardships because of gov intervention through price gouging at the pumps,which raises the prices of goods.
I have money taken from me,and then given to others who don't put the effort forward to get a better life.
I get forced to pay into 3 schools when I have none in school.
I have been forced to pay auto ins to the tune $300 a month,when I only drive 15 miles a month !
I have had to pay for meds to the tune 5 grand a month because of feed that has been called food.
I have been forced to pay for unending wars and what I call bailouts to other nations,none of which I have ever seen,and probably never will.
SOOOO,what are you going to do about my financial situation,seeing you and the fed gov took all I ever had??????????????
Yeah,I can hear the friggen crickets,and nothing more

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence
