France Gets Tough?

Well, now, who's the cowboy here?

Reuters reports:
BREST, France (Reuters) - France said on Thursday it would be ready to use nuclear weapons against any state that carried out a terrorist attack against it, reaffirming the need for its nuclear deterrent.
Ya got that, pilgrim?

Well, not really France [unless he is channeling Louis XIV], but it was Jacques Chirac himself rattling the nuclear sabre. Ya gotta admit, the old fraud does do a damn good Duke Wayne imitation.

Read it here.

It is interesting to note that there is apparently a broad public sentiment in France favoring nuclear disarmament at precisely the time that Iran is acquiring a nuclear arsenal. Funny that.
