Q: Why isn't France supporting the war against Iraq?
A: Because it feels the war hasn't yet been fully justified and unlike the Yank government (and seemingly most of its crappy comedians, although not, surprisingly enough, a large number of its populace) prefers to avoid wideshed blood-letting until deemed absolutely necessary.
Not funny, perhaps, but then again, neither were any of the one-liners below.
(And I'd like to see any of those smug f*ckers 3,000 miles away behave as many members of the French Resistance did in WWII. It's easy to wage war by remote control isn't it?)
