Considering that the U.S. owes it's independence to mighty France, I can't help but think that the usual anti-French rubbish is sad and uncalled for.
France is entitled to pursue her own foreign policy, and if that flies in the face of other western schemes perhaps that's for the best.
Vive La France!

Just received this picture today of snipers training in the French "army".
Snipers must often sit for hours waiting for the right moment to shoot.
There just has to be a better way to do this ...

I am no fan of the french...but they have the right to pursue their own foriegn policy. I think its wrongheaded, and rather shortsighted, but their concern is, and rightly so, the safety and well-being of their citizens, not the safety and well-being of people who live within another country.
