    Then a new Syria out of ruins will be grateful and order Rafael?

    France (Frankenstein)'d better open her door for Syrian refugees.

    Rafale was the only aircraft to enter Libya before the TLAM strikes, your attempts to berate Rafale are a failure. Nothing Syria has can defeat SPECTRA, much less anything Gaddafi had.

    I think the Charles De Gaul has been dispatched to the Med. The AC is just out of the repairs. Wonder if the Russians have provided Syria with anti shipping missiles?

    If there's anything I like about France.It's their attitude.. they don't kiss anyone's ass... least USA.
    They have a mind of their own.

    CdG is still in Toulon but is preparing to make way. Russia recently provided Yakhont ASMs so Aster equipped escorts will be necessary for the French Battle Group.

    Russia would then strike something too.

    They have their interest and also 13 or so ships in the Mediterranean.

    hope it doesnt happen, but if an ASM does do some damge to an AC, it will change a lot of perceptions regarding carriers as a force projector

    The Aviationist » Operation Odyssey Dawn explained (Day 1)

    In other words the French show at the opening of the NATO attack on Libya was not so spectacular considering the low level of air defense threats in Bengazi.
