    In light of the Madrid bombing, France has raised their terror alert
    level from "run" to "hide".

    The only two higher levels in France are "surrender" and "collaboration"

    You forgot about when things get really bad and they have to start collaborating.

    They can raise the white flag.

    No elections are necessary.

    What do you mean "RAISED" they've been on this hightented "surrender/collaboration" alert since Napolean got cold feet in Russia centuries ago. The Germans were well aware of the "surrender alert" and knew they could just do a parage into Paris.

    I find it humerous that the French wouldn't support us for fear of losing all thos Iraqi oil contracts (though they said it was principle) and now they get targeted anyway.

    Two Frenchmen were being stood against a wall by a Nazi execution squad. Allowed a few last words, the first Frenchman curses his killers, telling them they will lose the war and roast in hell and all their crimes will be avenged and........then he hears the other Frenchman whispering in his ear "Shush! You'll make them mad."

    having lived in europe most of my life, i have a pretty good understanding of the french in general. i am not a francophile, other than loving their wine, cheese, food, skiing, beaches, etc etc.

    and i am certainly not a fan of chirac or his behaviour towards the USA.

    so with all the caveats out of the way....
    i will say that their head of anti-terror is a fellow called brisard. and he is the undisputed king of anti terror. cia, nsa, fbi everybody looks up to this guy. he pulls no punches, has complete control to investigate, arrest, judge and sentence. and he does it all over the place.

    anyway, i just thought i would throw them this bone because this is one area they actually have a leader in.
