Asymmetrical Information

Asymmetrical Information: "I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that apparently the most important criteria for deploying French troops, or for that matter UN peacekeepers in general, is that there cannot be any shooting involved, or even threatened. It seems the only place safe enough for either army these days is downtown Santa Monica in the tourist season. Perhaps they could be deployed in traditional national folk-dancing garb and carry little souvenir baskets of regional cheeses instead of rifles. For that matter, why call it an army? Wouldn't 'Hospitality Squadron' be more in keeping with their modern mission?"

The French are being misjudged here,as I write a crack team of gastronomes are compiling the Michelin Guide to the Lebanon,then as Napoleon said "Apres moi le fromage".
