Default Way off topic, but it has do to with the French

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its
terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in
France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by
a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively
paralysing the country's military capability.


This was taken from a much longer note that mentioned the Brit level
had gone from Annoyed to Peeved.


CLEAR!

Bull****. They did make an attempt and they did ask for help, which was not
forthcoming, from the Brits, who made a halfhearted effort, and from the
US, who sold them some equipment. Not to say there weren't some who
welcomed the Germans....

And it turns out they were right about Iraq... Of course, my magic eight
ball had a better chance of getting it right that that twit in the white
house..


Not only that, they're keeping MX with no cost to the US. Give them
some thanks!

Cheers

Meanwhile the Bush Administration raised its threat level from
Bomb-Into-Democracy to Nukem-and-let-God-sortem-out...and that's just
the Democrat Party. Furriners are ignored as useless, unless they
wear a turban, in which case the threat level is borrowed from the
English and French: 100-year-war.

Exaclty!

I'm there all the time and while they can be a bit standoffish, I've never
found them to live up to any of the poplular stereotypes around them.

Except, of course, their food is nearly as good as the italian's.

It must be awful for you to watch Iraq succeeding, no? Sorta like a
slow-motion train...construction project...

:-)

Seriously, if something bad doesn't happen in Iraq (or somewhere), and soon,
Hillary doesn't stand a chance against Obama. With her perceived
superiority in foreign policy issues as the main defining difference between
them, (well, other than age, gender, experience, attitude, etc. -- but those
don't seem to matter), the lack of any foreign crises is truly hurting her
campaign.

I'll say this about the Democratic campaigns -- it's been a lot more fun to
watch than the Republicans. Heck, even French politics have been more fun
than watching Huckabee and whatsisname trying to beat McCain.

What is Hillary's experience with foreign crises? Monica? Seriously,
I'm honestly curious why the Hillary camp talks up her "experience".
What experiece do they refer to? She's a junior Senator (just like
Obama). The only difference between the two is that before being a US
Senator Obama was a state Senator and Hillary was First Lady. Is she
saying First Lady is better presidential experience than state
Senator? In a poker game is First Lady a better hand than state
Senator (not that I'm saying either one really has any true national
leadershiip experience)?
