For those who only know FFL... "regular" army has been engaged in large numbers in all french operations since forever. Actually, most of the troops posted in Africa are Marines troops aka "Colonials". Their historical mission is to deploy.

I thought it was ONLY FFL in Mali right now? Hmm.. Surprises me to see the French actually commit their regular forces to a fight.

These are what the Legion would call "Schlapores", a slang name for regular French army. Derived from a German nickname for a dog with floppy ears, because some French army units have humongous berets. Doubtless some of the units currently serving in Mali were previously stationed in Chad as it is a logical stepping point strategically. Units of the legion do regular company sized rotations in 4 month increments in Chad splitting their time between N'Djemena and Abeche. But so do the French regulars. Its an on going operation called "Epervier".

This isn't no way to die........... "2/12/11 - A dramatic video has surfaced titled “brother of Patricia González la piñata," where various masked men assault a man with a bat and an electric stungun. The victim is presumably Mario González, brother of a former prosecutor for the state of Chihuahua, whose previous interrogation videos were released on YouTube. Mario González Rodríguez (who is also a lawyer), was kidnapped and murdered in November of last year, he appears dressed in black, his hands a feet are bound, and a gag has been placed in his mouth with black gray tape. He has electrical elements attached to his feet and he cries out in pain as his assailants turn it on periodically. With the song “La piñata” playing in the background, the men take turns beating him viciously with a bat. The document was signed “el pummaoriginal” and at the end a message appears: “lo prometido es deuda por si no la cren k soy el de adeveras marranos saludos saludos saludos”. Promises must be kept, if you don't believe that I am one of the real pigs, Greetings, greetings, greetings In the Youtube account “quitapuercos en Chihuahua” there is a comment, also by “puma original” that reads: “lo prometido es duda aki está el regalo de san valentin para la ex procu paricia gonzalez con cariño del puma original saludos saludos saludos”, Promises kept, here is your Valentine. For the ex prosecutor Patricia Gonzalez. With love, Original Puma, greetings,greetings, greetings The first two installments were uploaded last October, and it was advertised that a third video would be released in the near future. All three were published under the same screen name. In the second video, Mario González made several “confessions”, among them, that former Chihuahua governor José Reyes Baeza and his sister, former prosecutor Patricia González met with Vicente Carrillo, leader of the Juarez cartel in order to plan several executions. Diario de Juárez took the decision to release the video and this information because all this is available on several websites and this subject is of great public interest."
