Message to Iran, attack France and we will nuke you with our extended range missiles!

After 9-11, the train bombings in the UK and Spain, night club attacks in Asia and the unrest from the cartoons, France has clearly made it's intentions clear and it's about time !

France secretly upgrades capacity of nuclear arsenal.

. Modification increases range of missiles
. Altitude bomb to knock out electronic systems

The Guardian

Military experts said this was not a step towards disarmament, but a move to improve the performance of the weapons. Until now each submarine carried 16 French-made M45 missiles, each fitted with six nuclear warheads. After being fired, each warhead would separate to hit a different target, in effect giving each submarine 96 nuclear bombs.

"while potential targets are "secret", it is clear they include the Middle East or Asia"

Well it looks like the French are geting serious, they had some muslim riots internally not long ago.Apparently the riots were over standards of living.

Standard of living yes, Muslim not neccisarily. Although populated by a large number of Muslims, the defining charecteristics of the slums in which the rioting occured was they were full of 'non-french' immigrants. (or second or third generation descendants of non-french immigrants) As for France getting tough, while France makes such inspiring comments, it is always questionable whether France or any nation has the political will to carry through on such threats. Then again, it's probrably best not to try and call someone's bluff if they're putting nukes in the pot.

What does this have to do with Iran?, we didn't even say nothing to France and along comes this thread about a nuclear strike on us

You have to admit that french have shown that they are more than cabable to send their troops rapidly into action (Zaire, Sierra Leone, Cotr d ivor, Congo) But i seriusly doubt they would use nukes... unless some one uses WMDs against them..

Ps. French can easily send troops to tough spots because they have the legion to use (minimun French casualities, since 90% legion is foreigners)
