"Why yes, Secretary Rumsfeld spoke sternly to me about French support for the US position toward Iraq, at which point I summarily surrendered all of the French military to him. What of it?"

Your response is so much truer than the jest it appeared to be. It explains 94% of the reluctance of nations to join us. (6% remaining is financial)

How to become French Minister of Defense:

A barrister by profession, doctor of law and senior lecturer at Paris-I University, Michèle Alliot-Marie also has a master's degree in ethnology.

(And so forth. I find nothing of a military nature).

It is funny that our secretary of defense also squints with his glasses. May be too much gun powder in the air?

In WWII, half of France (the Vichey French) embraced the Nazis.

France lost it's brains, it's courage, and it's honor when they killed off their aristocracy in the Revolution.

A truly pathetic people. A shadow of what was once a glorious nation.
