    Both French Naval and Air units are in the coalition in afghanistan. I can find no reference to any ground troops though, unless they are integrated into the ISAF ground unit

      150 spec ops for the moment around Kandahar. But I can't vote to the poll, as I am not involved in French basing

        Cool, I knew you guys had to have something in the ISAF force I just could not find a reference to actual ground troops.

          Official references

          Hello,

          From what I gather on the official french MoD website, there are currently around 450 / 500 ground troops deployed in Kabul.

          http://www.defense.gouv.fr/ema/force..._operation.htm
          and
          http://www.defense.gouv.fr/ema/force...0203_fias3.htm

          It appears that these pages are only available in french...

          Needless to say, I will not take part in that vote (being amongst the bashed ones )

            It's not very old, September. It is a bilateral agreement which say, among other thing, that the French authorities don't have the right to give infos about the operations. They are under American operationnal command and are involved in operations against the Taliban in the South of the country.

                You mean I can actually flood your email account? Cool, I think I'll go and find a bulk email software just for hell of it and see how you respond to that...

                Will you at last display the "French Fighting Spirit" or "French Surrendering Spirit"?

                Can't imagine a conservative American's email laying in an ultra-liberal foreign email account, it's so UN-American!!!!

                      Isn't the communism on the far left, which would make it a part of liberal political spectrum?

                      Anyway, it's easier for me to label anybody a liberal rather than taking time to figure out the nuances of a European political system....

                      Okay, LIBERAL, now does that makes you squirm? LIBERAL LIBERAL LIBERAL!!!!! Come on, squirm!!!!! LIBERAL LIBERAL!!!
