Hey all, I was wondering whether India should send some aircraft to Mali in support of French forces. It would increase our standing in the international community and would also help our relations with the French. Considering the no of investments our companies have in Africa, wouldn't it be worthwhile to send a message to African nations in particular and to the world as a whole that India will be tough on terrorism? It will also provide a good learning experience for the force on anti insurgency and small scale ground support roles. Feel absolutely free to post your views. Thanks.
