    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 VĂ©hicules Industriels, violated the terms of the humanitarian program (Iraq oil for food program) from 2000 to 2003." http://www.cfr.org/publication/10675/.
