French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said today that the goal of France’s military action in Mali was to retake control of the entire country from Islamist militants who have seized the north. “The goal is the total reconquest of Mali. We will not leave any pockets” of resistance, Le Drian said on French television. (Issouf Sanogo/AFP/Getty Images)

Lest we forget the conflict in Mali (including U.S. logistical support — insofar as the Dauphin Barry tells us) The Atlantic Monthly has a great round up of photos and info on the conflict between Islamist jihadists and Mali and French forces here.
