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!

Well, it's kind of ironic that the french would declare war on a non-existant group..
Then again, France does have a habit of LOOSING any and all military battles anyway, might as well be fighting imaginary "terrorists" to declare themselves winners..

While the US were being isolationist the French were bleeding themselves to victory in WW1 and bleeding themselves to defeat in WW2 agaist a war machine which would have rolled over any nation at the time.

I have to agree with you and disagree. I think MS was making a comment in jest and think you might have gone a bit far in your criticism by singling out one particular member. On ATS we often get annoyed by other peoples ignorance but I don’t think we should, we cannot all know everything. I somebody is ignorant of the role France in the war on terrorism they should be informed not ridiculed for being ignorant. You are however correct in you assessment of the role of the French in the war on terrorism they have played a role and an important one. Despite not making the point myself initially I do agree with you.
