Foreign Operations

Foreign military operations, that used to be legal and legitimate in
the past, have seen their meaning change totally during the Twentieth
Century after the prohibition of the use of force in international relations.
They have not disappeared but have taken a new meaning and
significance. For France, they represent a way to continue existing as
a major power though it tries to give its foreign operations a mission
of general interest. It seems necessary that they should be launched
within a legal and multilateral framework and that they should appear
legitimate to public opinion. Yet foreign operations that last too long
risk being contested from within the country and resisted, even militarily,
from outside.
