France Will Not Run Away

Several days ago an Afghan soldier turned his rifle on French members of NATO forces and killed four men. Their deaths were part of an attack by friendly Afghan soldiers that left 15 other  French soldiers wounded including several  who might die. French President Sarkozy was furious and threatened to withdraw his forces from Afghanistan ahead of the 2014 deadline to leave. However, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe assured NATO that France will not panic and will not leave before 2014.

Sources claim the man confessed to the murders because of  a recent video depicting four US Marines urinating on dead Taliban bodies. War is hell, and in war men do things they would never in civilian life. The importance of respecting other cultures once again proves needed on the part of those who fight in that faraway land.
