Our Friends The French

Anyone who still considers France an ally of the same order of Britain or Australia is living in fantasy land. France has stated that it will only take part in an international conference on Iraq if the agenda includes discussion of the withdrawal of troops from Iraq and representatives of the insurgent groups are allowed to participate.

It should come as a surprise to no one that France is advocating surrender in Iraq, but even the most ardent Francophile should be appalled by their demand that the "insurgents" (read terrorists) be represented. Let us be reminded that these are the people responsible for the beheading of people of all nationalities. They are the people responsible for the killing of multi-national troops with car bombs. They are the people responsible for the dismembering, burning and hanging from a bridge four contractors. These are the people France is demanding have representation at an international conference on Iraq.
