Apparently, the Socialist government of France will lead a war to wipe out jihadists in Africa. However, US President Barry Obama is refusing to participate.
According to the BBC News, "France is to set up a new military operation in the Sahel region of northern Africa in an effort to stop the emergence of jihadist groups. About 3,000 French soldiers will be deployed, along with troops from Mali, Mauritania, Burkina Faso and Chad."
France believes that eliminating the Islamist scourge in Africa can boost the continent's economy and stability.
As reported by BBC, "On Monday France ended its military deployment in Mali, set up 18 months ago after an Islamist insurgency there. French forces helped the Malian government recapture the north from al-Qaeda-linked militants last year."
France is expected to launch counter-terrorism attacks.
