I have some new-found respect for France, as they've finally decided to step into the foray on the War on Terror.

On the bright side, France is one of 4 countries (that I can think of) with one-syllable names -- Greece, Spain, & Chad are the others. Chime in with any that I've missed, oui man.

  1. US ally (in name at least)
  2. Existence of France DID historically make a difference to American independence--but that was 234 years ago; current France (since 1919) no difference
  3. France is a pretend-power, and has been since way before 1919 (well-equipped, but never has the "stones" to conduct war)

IK HOU VAN JOU, MARK

Take a large, almost round, rotating sphere about 8000 miles in diameter, surround it with a murky, viscous atmosphere of gases mixed with water vapor, tilt its axis so it wobbles back and forth with respect to a source of heat and light, freeze it at both ends and roast it in the middle, cover most of its surface with liquid that constantly feeds vapor into the atmosphere as the sphere tosses billions of gallons up and down to the rhythmic pulling of a captive satellite and the sun. Then try to predict the conditions of that atmosphere over a small area within a 5 mile radius for a period of one to five days in advance!

Ever notice whenever we declare war on something (poverty, drugs, etc) we fail miserably?

As to the poll, I don't think France has enough clout globally, or even within the EU community to be considered "powerful". Just look at their attempts to impose their will upon Apple and Microsoft. Mostly, they are a toothless tiger.
