Macron: France will deploy aircraft carrier to the Middle East
The nuclear-powered ship is meant to assist French operations in Syria and Iraq.

JANUARY 18, 2020

French President Emmanuel Macron said in his New Year speech to the French army that aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle will support “Chammal operations [in the Middle East] from January until April 2020,” Reuters has reported. The deployment also includes the aircraft carrier's battle group, which is a group of smaller escorts that service the huge ship. The Chammal operations are the ongoing missions taken by the French army in Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS and support the Iraqi military. The name is derived from the Shamal wind. The aircraft carrier is nuclear-powered and can carry 550 aircrews and accommodate 800 marines, Naval Technology reported.

sigh, all it needed, was for Macron to insert himself into the Middle East AGAIN.

I haven't checked the news feeds yet, but I wonder if he's trying to get his long nose into the Peace plan again.

Every time he does, something bad happens in France to keep his nose in his OWN business. Yellow vest protests, Notre Dame burning to a crisp. Both times he was shoving himself into the Peace Deal.

I suppose he needs to feel wanted and useful!

I want to apologize to France. I have just googled "heroes of France" and was surprised to find a French heroine who was supposedly Noah's wife: Joan of Ark.
