On the days of France launched a military operation in Mali, opposing army Islamists trying to overthrow the local government. Let's see what exactly France forgotten in Mali, where and why there she military force? With the start of the French anti-colonial movement is encouraging given the independence of the former colonies (except Algeria), but from the colonies themselves are gone. On the contrary, the direct colonial rule was replaced by indirect management, creating the term Francafrique — special case of France with its former colonies.

Do, especially so that to this day many African countries is used as a so-called national currency "African Franc, "which possess the right to issue two specially created central bank. other words, the French seem to be gone, freeing the Negro workers from its own operation, but the means to African migrant print forbid — what if they will break them, confused or something. Negro Let the best tools are French banks in particular — so reliable.

In-2, in almost all countries Francafrique a French military base, airfields and garrisons. Red-blue map shows the countries with which France has concluded or military treaties (blue), or agreements on military-technical cooperation (reddish). Though some who try to poke into the French sphere of influence, here receive the nose — at the same time on the very legitimate reasons. Moreover, the garrisons are not idle, and intensely involved in domestic politics (as now in Mali), sometimes someone toppling, shooting, or vice versa, without giving overthrow.

Military and political interference in African affairs coordinates the Direction Generale de la Securite Exterieure (DGSE), the French OUTDOOR intelligence. Specifically, under the DGSE acting in his time a famous mercenary Bob Denard, organize coups across the continent — in this case, he continued to receive support DGSE, even when in power in France came Socialists led by Hollande (who seem to be against the suppression of workers).

B-3, the country Francafrique intensely involved in the French economy — French companies are doing to blacks that they want, and they do not dare to utter a word. Of course, that of other countries have access to the Francafrique only after agreement with France. Apart from the legal economy, Africans are involved in the illegal economy — the French political elite are often blamed for the organization of African exports to the shadow of hidden financing of political parties and campaigns already inside France. Shadow DGSE operations on its territory negros also pay themselves.

Eventually, Francafrique assigns the diplomatic weight of France in the international arena, supporting French venture and ideas. It is one thing — small France, and quite another thing when over half of France is the African continent ("You did that, blacks do not respect?").

This cursory review of the impact France in Africa helps to understand why all of a sudden France joined the war in civilian clothes inside one of their own former colonies, and will continue to meddle in all such conflicts, solving them in their favor. As they say, the old colonialist habits die hard or, in the case of France, did not die completely. Snow white man comes once and for all — but from time to time loves to smash comedy about the "independence" and "decolonization".
