Don't know why everyone is being so tough on the French. They are much better allies than we realized. The Israeli's tried to kill Arafat for decades... No luck. The Jordanians tried to kill him in the 1970s... No luck. Lebanese factions tried to kill him in the 1980s... No luck. Two weeks of tender loving care in Paris... DEAD! Hey Osama, want to see the Eiffel Tower?
