French involvement in tsunami recovery

>> Wednesday, January 12, 2005

Via Bad Hair Blog, see the English translation of a France2 newscast, France 2 Humiliates French Government.

The US had an aircraft carrier group in Hong Cong and they set sail to the disaster area the day after the tsunami. France had an aircraft carrier in the Suez Canal (an additional 400 mile further away than Hong Cong is) and they still haven't arrived. It was sent to port first to refuel. American doctrine is to refuel enroute and send the tanker back to port.
