    You remember Dominique de Villepin. He was the French Foreign Minister who organized the UNSC against America prior to the beginning of the Iraq War. Villepin and Chirac threatened a French veto against UNSC sanctioned military action in Iraq. Villepin also visited the capitals of then UNSC non-permanent members in an effort to get them to vote against UNSC sanctioned military action. Later, "the Volcker report said 172 French companies, including Peugeot and Renault Véhicules Industriels, violated the terms of the humanitarian program (Iraq oil for food program) from 2000 to 2003." http://www.cfr.org/publication/10675/.
