So it begins

Fighter jets from the French Air Force are enforcing a no-fly zone over parts of Libya. Two things I find disingenuous: 1) in 1985 when US fighters were requesting a flyover of French airspace to bomb Libya the French government, then under François Mitterrand refused them. 2) France opposed the war in Iraq which began in 2003. When Republicans are running things, they oppose it. Now that we’re doing one of these “nation builder” wars that the Democrats love to get behind, France is right in the middle of it all.
