The French and the Islamic Bomb

Reader comment on item: [Appeasement Explains] Why Europe Balks

The French are the sellers, architects and builders of the Iraqi and Pakistan nuclear reactors. Further, the French sent technicians to help maintain and service the reacters and under the contract drafted by the French both the Iraqis and the Pakistanis were not prohibited from altering the reacters from benign national energy providers to providing the energy needed to build nuclear weapons. When Pakistan and Iraq began to obtain weapons grade plutonium the French knew and never told the West.

The French, in violation of the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty, acted without principle, ethics or humanity by selling nuclear technology to nations with an unbridled hatred of the West.

Again, France is responsible for the Third World War. They upset the balance of power and if it wasn't for Israeli vision and courage Saddam Hussein would have irradiated the West. The United Nations in all its wisdom condemned Israel for the attack.

France should be expelled from NATO. It is not a great nation. It cannot join in peace keeping missions and cannot fulfill its military obligations under NATO or the UN because it does not have a functioning military force. Unlike America, Great Britain and Israel with an expert, well trained military, the French spend all of their tax dollars on social programs for themselves. Their military is a sham....
