Mr. Hell and Ms. Handbasket are going on a picnic in the middle east http://today.reuters.com/news/artic...0_US-MIDEAST-FRANCE-ISRAEL.xml&src=rss&rpc=22 Remember back a while back when I posted that in the not too distant future it was highly likely that a European nation would wind up in a shooting war with Israel? Right now Hamas is so very close to restarting the war again. The French and German forces have arrayed themselves to counter an Israeli attack, not to prevent an attack from Hamas. One mistake, one missile fired (by either side) and all hell will break loose. I can very easily see the radical muslims in France demanding (under threat of massive rioting/civil war) that France go to war against Israel if such a mistake is made. Something tells me the French will do what they're told by the muslims. Partly out of fear of being overthrown and largely out of general irrational hate towards the ebil joos. I was wrong about the election. Please let me be wrong about this.
