"France on the second highest level of security after convening with his defence, interior, foreign and surrender ministers"
President Chirac then publicly demanded that the perpetrators identify themselves so that France could offer her immediate surrender.
Moved from yellow flag to white flag!
What is France's highest alert level, running from the foe in the opposite directon?
The"Marseilles"isn't the French National Anthem,it's"I Surrender,Dear"!!!
Wait a minute!!!! France and Spain went onto alert? Why? Spain pulled out of Iraq after 3/11 and France never went into Iraq...why would they be at risk? Could it be that Iraq isn't the catalyst? Just a thought...
And look what that got them when Spain pulled out!
I heard that Denmak and Italy were directly threatened. It's fine that Europe is on red alert today...will they be on red alert 9, 10 months from now when trouble hits? We forget and grow complacent so quickly.
Why Denmark, do they still have troops in theatre?
I had the same question. That's what I heard. I don't have the answer.
***Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero said he had ordered the Interior Ministry to activate 'all of the alert and prevention systems.'***
I thought Spain was safe because after the terrorists bombed their train, they all rushed off to the voting booths and elected a communist who withdrew their troops from Iraq. Hmmmm...could it be that appeasing the terrorists didn't make them safe?
