France Already Surrendering In Lebanon

Here is another example of why we can always trust the French. France gave us the impression that prior to the Israeli pullout they would fully participate in the UN force. As usual that seems to be nothing but another broken promise: France said to want only symbolic force.

France, meanwhile, wants to send a small, purely symbolic contingent to the force, and the United Nations is trying to convince French officials that such a decision would be devastating, a news report said Thursday.

Though France has been widely expected to lead the force, the newspaper Le Monde reported that it planned to contribute merely 10 officers and 200 military engineers.

What does France care if Hizballah murders more Israelis? They are just Jews.

France can't surrender!

Didn't you hear that their white flag factory burned down and all their old white flags were recently soiled during the toilet paper manufacturers strike.

Oh well! I guess they will have to use the old ones after all...
