This is b*llsh*t on so many levels I don't know where to start. First, maybe if you bothered READING the article instead of acting like a bigoted, narrowminded redneck jerk you would see that the article is about what SOME people in the US government think. The article itself talks about how OTHERS in the US government think the idea of retaliation is stupid. So, no it is NOT about why the government is being unfriendly to France. It's about an article in which some people advocate RETALIATION against France.
Second, you have no idea what motivated the French government. What are you clairvoyant? The French opposed this war. That doesn't mean they wanted Hussein in power it just means they thought the US had no legitimate grounds to start this war. I agree with them one hundred percent. But you, you seem unable, despite repeated attempts people have made to explain the concept to you, to accept the relatively SIMPLE notion that being against the WAR does not equate to being FOR Hussain.
And the United States gave Saddam weapons during the Iran conflict. Then they turned around and got in bed with Iran. Yes yes, politics is dirty. You seem to think that the US is some kind of Lily Pure White Knight. Well you're wrong.
All right we get it. You hate France. You're entitled.
I don't feel too kindly disposed towards narrow minded bigots.
Smoke on THAT for a bit.
