Just reported on US television France have stated that they will send in troops if chemical/biological weapons are used against allied forces or sorrounding nations. The more the merrier but let us hope that they join in different circumstances.

The U.S., Australian and Britis troops don't need French decontamination stations, we have our own. Heck, they have an aversion to deoderant and showers, I surely wouldn't want to rely on their decon stations.

No, if they don't want to be involved now, if they wanted to run around the world working against us in the days before, if they wanted to help drive us to war by giving their buddy Saddam solace and succor, to heck with France.

I heard that their aircraft carrier is in the area.
It's a bit wierd that they want to support it only when he uses chem/bio weapons, and not now.
(just for the record, I am not anti Franc, i think it's a beautiful country)

They first chose Saddam's side but if he turns out to a crook they will quickly support the US... very lame indeed.

I think it's too late now, they should stay out of this war.

If this report is true, the French are saying nothing beyond a woolly commitment to general UN principles. Chirac would have done well to have stayed silent: the words "Elf" and "Aquitaine" leap to mind.

yeh they do actually have one air craft carrier in the mediterranean on 'exercises', so yeh the question does arise why do the oppose the war so openly to the media? and second germany have deployed 59 chemical warfare speacialists stationed in kuwait. I doubt it though they will send any more troops in, maybe the support of their carrier may be used but who knows.

The French believed the inspections were working. However, if they did show that they did have illegal weapons the French opinion would change and they would join the conflict. If anything, it would be the most honourable thing to do, admit you're wrong and help the "good guys", right?

that's just wrong. they didn't take the side of Saddam they didn't believe war was necessary to disarm him. how quickly we forget the endless debates that led up to this thing. it was never a question of should Saddam disarm only how to go about disarming him.

as it stands we are going to need all the help we can get to rebuild and i'm sure France and Russia will want in when all is said and done. and the bushies have said they will allow it.


Ba'jesus...i'm glad some of you aren't part of the gov. yall hot heads would bankrupt the US re-building a slab o'sand thousands of miles away over some misplaced grudge. translation: Saddam is the enemy not France.

If i may add:

And for those of you who believe the US is doing the biggest part of the job in Iraq:
It will be Europe, the neighbouring countries and the UN who will do the most important and onerous part, caring for the victims.

Utter B.S


ok B.S. probably means bull# ...
If you think the reconstruction program covers everything, you're mistaken, and it's only a program, yet.
The neighbouring countries and Europe will have a wave of fugitives to deal with, and the biggest economic consequences to handle, dont forget that.

Paris - France has invoked a long forgotten clause to demand that the Statue of Liberty be returned.

The people of France sent Lady Liberty as a gift to the people of the United States in 1886, but the recent row between the countries over Iraq has them rethinking their present. A graduate student in history, Jean Renault, at the cole Centrale Paris uncovered a document which gives France the right to recall the gift under certain conditions.

"It says right here," said Renault pointing to the aged document, "that if America drops below a certain level on the Franklin Scale (an international measure of a country's liberty and freedoms) that France can demand the statue back."

Jacques Chirac glowed with excitement at the discovery. "Finally, the Americans will feel the wrath of the French. We plan on putting the statue in Eurodisney, or giving it to a more freedom-loving country like North Korea."

Chirac also warned that if the statue is not returned that France would "vigorously enforce its patent on French Fries, and send all its good red wine to Germany." Economists believe such moves would cripple an already weak American economy.

The news infuriated many Americans. Karl Cabot of Waukesha, Wisconsin said, "You know I sorta remember reading about a clause like that before, but I say screw the Frenchies. The statue should stay in Washington D.C. where it belongs!"

President Bush vehemently opposed the request. "America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. It says so in our constitution. God bless America."

A recent poll showed that Americans favored renaming the statue to the Statue of Quasi-Liberty, or The Torch Lady in order to keep the monument in New York harbor.

Tony Blair suggested a compromise in which the Statue of Liberty would be left exactly where it is and France would "bugger off."

PS. THIS IS SATIRE!! =)

Interesting that this is announced after Ricin was found at a Paris train station on Monday. As suspected, when terrorism hits home people become upset and motivated to fight against it.

I kept wondering how France would have reacted if the Eiffel Tower, Government Ministries or the Louvre had been destroyed by a jet flown by terrorists.

Well, let them put their military where their mouth is and finally do something besides criticize the US.
