As we’ve mentioned before, we like bashing the French as much as the next guy. But they really do have an army, and they really are in Afghanistan. I’ll leave it for the folks that have been there/done that to comment on any interactions they may have had with our Gallic cousins. In the meantime, here’s a quick clip of the French on the ground.
I’ll note without snark that the air support is from A-10s, none of which are in French service, but only operated by the US Air Force.
