    France may go on the list of countries that support terrorism soon. Is this what Bushs' critics expected him to do instead of going to war against terrorism? Let them see what happens to the French and Europe becuase of this policy.

    I don't know about 'enemy list,' but I think we should be looking at removing 'favored trading status.' It becomes clearer with each passing month, that for whatever reason, France is working against what have long been considered 'similar interests.'

    Yes, Kathianne - I'd say ever since the end of WW2 actually!

    closer to indochina, probably pissed because they ran in shame and we, at least, left somewhat gracefully.

    Makes a lot of sense. Islam is the largest PRACTICED religion in France now.

    Chirac is the most anti-America leader of France since Henri-Philippe Petain led Vichy France.

    Frankly, since the end of WWII they have plotted against us. Their withdrawal from NATO was a HUGE slap in the face at the time. Screw France!

    This could turn into a nasty situation very easily.

    France - especially its limp-wristed ruling elite - is scared shitless of the Muslims. They have the biggest concentration of Muslims of any European country and they just don't know what to do with it.

    This explains why they will NEVER get involved in any action in a Muslim country. Look how fast they were to show up in west Africa with their toy soldiers - these were Christian countries. They could shove their weight around without upsetting the pro-Islamic media.

    Sudan is a very different ball game - it's Muslim, and to go in there, the French would risk the wrath of their huge Muslim population. They haven't got the balls for that, which is why you won't ever see the French in any Muslim country any more taking military action - genocide or not.

    France fucks us, but our Benedict Arnold Left in this country will say its our fault for letting France fuck us. We're definitely in a tight spot. How did we let these traitors achieve soo much power?
