"At the moment there are some ongoing contacts sometimes to a very good extent. I have Poland in mind ... to provide troops for operations that could add up to ours. If the decision is confirmed tomorrow, then the operation will be considered a European one, opening the way to European financing," Hollande said at the end of the first day of European Union summit talks on Thursday.
The French president also welcomed logistical backing from some European countries including Belgium, Britain, Germany and Poland.
"What I would like to see, politically, is a European presence.That it not be said that 'France is alone,'" he said at a news conference.
Comment: Hollande wants money and cannon fodder from the other European nations, in what is a colonial French aggression to secure resources for French corporations. Remember Hollande won the UNESCO peace prize and is just as eager for war as Obama, another peace prize winner . And like the US, France is virtually bankrupt, so the only way forward for the pathocrats in power is to steal resources where they are and if they can con someone else to pay for the military nightmare, the better.
