The French have done an excellent job so far. Note the very high level of local support. And, note to their credit, that they clearly understand that their welcome can only last so long without the locals picking up the ball and defending themselves. The absolute highest priority for a modern western style military intervention is to have a clear notion of an excellent exit strategy which does not include unrealistic goals like our "democratization" of Afghanistan.
