Okay thanks. The media never really tells up here how widespread (or not widespread) the problem actually is.

Anyways, back to the topic on hand.

This is a very dangerous undertaking, as soon they will run out of dummy targets and will soon be on our doorstep finding the actual targets.
Is france really declaring war on us?

?? Please ex[and on your reasoning for that one.
I cannot see how this can be construed as a declaration of War against the USA?

But It's looking good for the Frenches

Well, here is the thing, I had said about a year ago the globalists were going to have to move into the next phase of operations.

So, instead of the US or the Brits beginning the invasion we need an outsider to begin the move. Enter the French. Hell, these guys never get into the act, right? Hell, we had several people here postulate as much.

Problem is folks, look at the countries the US has been involved in over the years. Even if they lose they win. Meaning the men behind the curtain.

You cannot declare war against an idea or a group, you can only prosecute them, be it death sentences or actual trials.

I lean toward the Swordfish technique.

The whole problem is, who do we attack. This is the perfect scenario for the globalists. There is no real country to go after and it is the perfect excuse to control the countries afterward. We need to prosecute it even if it means subjugating an entire region or country. Is this really what we want our countries to do? I mean, alright going after the killers is all and good, but how many of the troops are we to let die. What EXACTLY is going to be the objective.

Did the US give Iraq the go ahead to invade Kuwait? If the US did, is that okay?

I am really beginning to believe we live already in 1984 and we just do not realize it yet.

Hell, we have been in Afghanistan for ten years now? What is our objective there?

Sometimes I think I live in a nightmare of insanity.

The French Foreign Legion (French: Légion étrangère) is a unique military unit in the French Army established in 1831. The legion was specifically created for foreign nationals wishing to serve in the French Armed Forces, but commanded by French officers. However, it is also open to French citizens, who amounted to 24% of the recruits as of 2007.[1]


en.wikipedia.org...

Yes, there are actual French in the French Foreign Legion. It is also commanded and trained by the French.


The French Armed Forces employ 220,650 regular troops and 33,350 part-time reservists,[4][5][6] (Total 254,000 troops). As such the French Armed Forces constitutes the largest military in the European Union in terms of man-power and the third largest in NATO. In addition the French Armed Forces have 419,000 Reserves[7], and 101,666 law enforcement Gendarmerie[8].

As of 2009, the French Armed Forces have the third or fourth highest expenditure of any military in the world, depending on calculation according to SIPRI. As well as the third largest nuclear force in the world, only behind the United States and Russia.


en.wikipedia.org...


Not a shabby force by any means.

Lots of blood...I think.

The French experience with war over the last two centuries is not at all a source of pride for those people. For the government to make a formal declaration as to their intentions against a global movement most likely means that they've determined that taking on Al Qaeda now will be like shooting fish in a barrell.

A light snack to gradually build up French confidence in itself.

First of all I served 5 years in the Corps....last 3 years as a Master at Arms in the Navy. I have heard a lot of smack talk on the French and a few times have thrown some fun talk out there myself...BUT...has it ever occured to anyone that the French sit back and chill while everyone else out here uses up our resources and money on these wars...which I have fought.

They are fashionably late to the war party and to give them credit it is actually a very tactically wise decision. France has some good stuff to bring to the table...remember Bella Wood...we fought next to the French and died together defending off the Germans. LOL...I am German...hahahah Irony....

As a French Creole from America's Mississippi River Valley....Up until about 8 years old, I thought that the whole world was France. It was at that time that I actually saw a globe and realized that it wasn't.

I strongly suspect that this article is deeper than many can expect...

the whole world has just declared on Al Qaeda. The only reason that many won't realize what is about to occur is because what France really is and what Al Qaeda really is are not well known or understood.

but they'll find out soon enough.

Y'all shall don't piss off Nicolas Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa a.k.a Napoleon reincarnated, i warn you.The smallest guys tend to be the tenacious ones aha.

I'm not sure if this public speech and the semantics used mean more than they should but i've seen Mr Morin (Defence minister) deny / play down the said "harsh words" towards our good ol' friends from Al Quaeda inc. ; that's never good when such a character deny something, best believe it.

But what do i know i'm just a french out the trench like my grandfather did during WW2 ^^

Yes Yes dropped weapons and white flags galore.
We can stereotype all day long.


Regarding the French Foreign legion, I'm just being real. Giving credit where credit is due.

They've got more than enough problems within their country. It's probably best to work on that before waging any kind of war.

So true! So true!

It must be near the end of the world with the French declaring war. It's so ironic that nearly nine years ago they were so adament against the US going to war with Al Qaida.

I just hope that when they get into a bind, which they will, the US don't go to their aid.

Poo on the French!

The French does have a lot of armament industries. Time to line their pockets while the going is good. Afterall, what's a few dead young naive innocent french men compared to billions in future armament contracts to the greedy globalists?

They are escalating now before Wikileaks does more damage to their plans to ramp up in Afghanistan.

http://__._/wiki/CIA_report_into_shoring_up_Afghan_war_support_in_Western_Europe,_11_Mar_2010


Public Apathy Enables Leaders To Ignore Voters. . . (C//NF)

The Afghanistan mission’s low public salience has allowed French and German leaders to disregard popular opposition and steadily increase their troop contributions to the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). Berlin and Paris currently maintain the third and fourth highest ISAF troop levels, despite the opposition of 80 percent of German and French respondents to increased ISAF deployments, according to INR polling in fall 2009.

• Only a fraction (0.1-1.3 percent) of French and German respondents identified “Afghanistan” as the most urgent issue facing their nation in an open-ended question, according to the same polling. These publics ranked “stabilizing Afghanistan” as among the lowest priorities for US and European leaders, according to polls by the German Marshall Fund (GMF) over the past two years


Apparently they are worried that if they wait, public opinion will make it impossible to continue.
