The French Waffle

PARIS, Feb 11 (KUNA) -- France denied here on Monday any firm decision to reinforce its military deployment in Afghanistan, saying that discussions on this were ongoing with it partners in the NATO alliance.

Their Englishy is not too superb over at Indian Muslim news, but if you read further down it sounds like the best we might expect from France is 250 troops. It also sounds like French Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Pascale Andreani is calling Peter MacKay a liar.

Well, seeing as how the French have their own home-grown Muslim insurgency to deal with, they can't afford to send any troops to fight muslims without offending their own muslims.

How does that saying about the French go . . .

"They're always there when they need you."

Next time Germany needs to expand it's borders, I say we stay home.
