In the meantime, France continues to send troops into the tumultuous Ivory Coast; carries out air strikes against military targets; and has taken control of the country’s main airport, to “protect its citizens.” Europe’s leading military role is becoming more and more obvious in other parts of the world as well, such as Libya.
