During the recent presidential campaign, Sen. John Kerry assailed President Bush for alienating key U.S. allies, evidence he maintained of the incumbent's lack of foreign policy acumen and an arena in which the challenger insisted he could "do better." Implicit in this critique was the belief that such allies notably, the French were anxious to be our friends, if they were not mistreated by America's leader.
In fact, it is increasingly clear the French government under President Jacques Chirac is bent on policies antithetical to U.S. interests. They are not simply anti-Bush, they are anti-American and anti-Atlaniticist. The latest example is Mr. Chirac's determination to have French and other European weapons manufacturers arm Communist China as part of what he has called "a necessary rebalancing of the 'grand triangle' formed by America, Europe and Asia."
Seen against this backdrop, Mr. Chirac's calculation that Europe must strengthen China militarily at America's expense is not just a one-off betrayal of an ally. It is part of a geostrategic tradition that renders France, at best, an unreliable partner in international affairs and, at worst, what the French call a "faux ami," or false friend.

MAN no dignity not only they are wimp they surrender to anybody
If it wasn't for US they would have been speaking German for a very long time. In the future we'll need to be more careful as to the nations we liberate.
There WILL be a price to pay for this betrayal!
France is traveling down many dangerous roads and it will cost them dearly eventually.
The only reason they wanted Kerry in was because he is weak, an appeaser who would have sold out his own nation and weaken it, and they were hoping to gain an advantage. They most certainly have no respect for him.
France is just being what France has always been throughout history, A traitor to any who try to establish international relations and goodwill with them. They have Betrayed the British, they have betrayed the Germans, The Italians, and Spain at various times throughout history.
Finally it was the Church which proved to be the glue that was able to hold Europe with France together. Now the French and much of Europe are throwing away what has been the only force able to give Europe any sort of relative peace. God.
Oh well, it is written that this would happen, so we know what will become of France. It's too bad that the people can't see how their leader is destroying their nation.
Are you saying France has an agenda? //snicker//
How 'bout ENEMY?
Since John L. Kerry LOST, perhaps he should speak up now to tell us all just what his great plan WAS. After all, it will be of little use to us in another 4 years.
Or maybe there were no plans at all.
America to Germany, "Go ahead and take France. We won't stop you this time..."
His plan, was a plan that planned for plans that planned on planning on plans that were heretofore previously UNplanned.
And thats the way it wuz. Karl Rove made him do it! </sarcasm>
