    "French troops in Ivory Coast have for the first time become involved in attempts to halt a drive by rebels into government-held areas of the south and east.

    A rebel group encountered a heavily armed contingent of the French Foreign Legion based in the western town of Duekoue."

    I'm fresh out of surrender lines to use here. Maybe they can bring some stability to the area.

    Will be interesting to see. Perhaps the French will realize they don't have to surrender all the time?

    But Bob...you don't expect France to acknowledge this, do you? ;)
