France has declared war on Al Qaeda in North Africa following the murder of a French hostage:
“We are at war with al-Qaida,” Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Tuesday, a day after President Nicolas Sarkozy announced the death of 78-year-old hostage Michel Germaneau.
Fillon refused to say how France would act. “But we will,” he said in an interview with Europe 1 radio.”
Call me crazy but I believe him.
