    Invocation of Article 5 Confirmed.


    Article 5 of the NATO Charter.


    Over 4,000 personnel including the Marine Nationale (one CVBG, comprising the Charles de Gaulle, frigates La Motte-Picquet, Jean de Vienne and Jean Bart, the nuclear attack submarine Rubis, the tanker Meuse and the aviso Commandant Ducuing) 3,200 ground troops and 350 from the Armée de l'Air (12 Mirage 2000, Mirage F1 and Mirage IV ground-attack and reconnaissance aircraft). The first deployed French force was composed of soldiers from the 21st Marine Infantry Regiment deployed on 17 November 2001, to Mazar-e Sharif. As of 17 September 2011, 75 French soldiers have died.[7]

    The NATO ally stabbed us in the back by not warning about the UNESCO vote. The United States President, rather than take that ally to task, ended up joining him in bashing another ally, one that actually does vote with us at the UN. But, to answer your question, I take the side of the United States, and I recognize our interests and allies. Our president, not so much.
