France: No Troops for Iraq if Kerry Wins

A French official said Saturday that even if Sen. John Kerry defeats President Bush in November's election, his country won't provide troops to help the U.S. in Iraq - the same policy France has under President Bush.

"If Kerry is elected, we wouldn't send troops either," the unnamed official told the New York Daily News. "We don't need any more targets in Iraq."

Considering that it is France and Russia that sent the weapons to Iraq that are taking out the "targets"...

Wasn't it last week that Kerry said that if he won, he'd be able to get France to send troops?

GRAB THE SPATULA! TIME TO FLIP AGAIN!

Well, now we know what ol' Jacques thinks of all the people who have been murdered by the terrorists.

Cheese eating rifle droppers won't defend their OWN country. They banned head scarfs and that's as far as they are willing to go. LOL

France has historically turned a blind eye to terrorists transiting through their country, under the cowardly notion that if they are nice to terrorists then terrorists will be nice them, and go on to murder and bomb people in other countries.

France doesn't have troops to send - even if they wanted to they couldn't.

And American soldiers on the ground don't like having French forces on their flank.

I'm shocked Louis! Think any reporter will question Monsieur Kerry about this startling news?

Over there! Over there!
Spread the word; spread the word,
Over there!
That the French are running;
The French are running!
And they won't slow down,
Till they've soiled their underwear!

Any troops the cheese eating surrender monkey's have will be needed to protect them from the mooslime kerrorists they have allowed to live inside their borders. The virus will turn on its' host and Jack Cheeserack will have his hands full.

Go back in time, it was during WWII

"If Roosevelt is elected, we wouldn't send troops either," the unnamed French official told the Daily News. "We don't need any more targets in Europe."

Isn't it funny how some things NEVER change.

When Kerry started talking that trash about how he would be more friendly with Europe and form coalitions anyone with good sense knew it was BS. Now it is confirmed.

France doesn't have troops to send..

They have some special forces that would have come in handy. They could have helped if they wanted to. They could open the books on the 50 billion of oil for palaces money sitting in one of their banks. There's a lot that they could do.

Apparently they don't understand that the terrorists hate secularists just as much as they hate Jews or Christians.
I can't believe that they are willing to negotiate with thugs.

A vote for Kerry is a vote for France!
