PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC - US plans to extend its "star wars" missile-defense program to Europe, which once dismissed the technology as an unproven cold-war anachronism, are gaining acceptance among governments here.
Despite Russia's mounting opposition, the Czech Republic, Poland, and - as of Friday - Britain have all expressed serious interest in hosting parts of the shield. Other countries traditionally cool to the idea have been notably quiet. The trigger: concern about a nuclear Iran
In a largely unnoticed speech about his country's nuclear strategy, for example, French President Jacques Chirac said last year for the first time that there was room in it for missile defense.

Yes. Even france has begun to sit up and take notice of the fact that the technology sold to iran by itself, north korea and russia can lead to france being in range of muslim madmen with their fingers on the button. And we all know that historically france does not fare well when bullied.
No, better for france to put up a missle shield now, before the muslims take over there.
