    You didn't like Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette?

    Some people have a really strange definition of leading.

    I wonder what sort of deal Obama promised Sarkozy to get him to jump in front of the bus for him.

    France has been a bit slow at doing their share but they were proved 100% correct when it came to the Iraq invasion and occupation.

    Why just Libya? Why not Oman? Syria already has some deaths and if the demonstrations spread and Bashra-ul-Asad cracks down why not there? What about Bahrains's use of force. This action opens up a whole new door on the uprising's in the middle east and Africa. Will France lead the way?

    You're telegraphing you complete ignorance of recent history, Lad.

    Seriously, kid, go read a book.

    You don't know what you're talking about.

    France also "led the way" into Haiti and Vietnam.
