I'm going to have to disagree with you abit. France asked the US to aid in a war in Bosnia/Serbia (insert all the places that Yugoslavia became). France chose not to go through the security council because they couldn't get it to pass. So the US is doing the same thing. I still don't agree with the war but that's because I don't see Iraq as a threat. However I do blame the recent surliness of North Korea on France's stand against the US on disarming Iraq. I think the NK realizes that NATO and the UN are severely fractured and that France will never authorize any action. Again I disagree with going to war however is France did not want war at all they should have struck down 1441 it's plan and simple.
