Chirac threatens nuclear weapons against ‘terrorist’ states (AFP):

French President Jacques Chirac comes aboard "The Vigilant" nuclear submarine, at l'Ile Longue military base, in the northwestern region of Brittany. Chirac for the first time warned Today that France could use nuclear weapons against states that launch or plan "terrorist" attacks against it involving weapons of mass destruction.(AFP/Pool/Jacques Demarthon)AFP – President Jacques Chirac for the first time raised the threat of a nuclear strike on any state that launches “terrorist” attacks against France.

Just what we need.  Iran pissed off France and now France is saying that if there are any terrorist events aimed at them they’re bringing out the nukes?  Shit, and I thought the US used questionable foreign policy.

It is interesting, though, with this whole Iran thing of late to see England, France, and Germany taking the lead in pissing off Islamic states.  I don’t want to comment on the merits of their decisions, but at least the world can get ticked off at them instead of us for once.

Maybe we should sever diplomatic ties to more countries around the world so we can’t get involved!  Isolationism returns and the US is safer!

Yeah, I didn’t think that was going to happen.  🙂
