Impotence: More wages of appeasement 
"A previously unknown group claimed the kidnapping of French engineer Bernard Planche and threatened on Wednesday to kill him if France did not "end its illegitimate presence in Iraq", in a video shown on Al-Arabiya television.

"I stress that France has no military presence in Iraq and that it has always argued for full sovereignty to be restored to the country," Douste-Blazy said in a statement appealing for the release of Planche." This according to Agents France Presse.

That's what you get when you appease a monster. Your only recourse is more appeasement.

This cheese-sniffing swine, in fact, has upheld the Vichy, collaborationist French tradition by objectively taking the rhetorical side of the terrorists against the United States. The tacet argument is "France already has its tail between its legs like a beaten puppy. You didn't even have to fire a shot. You should kidnap Americans, Britons, and Poles. That would at least be justified by their illegitimate military presence."

The French diplomat also lobs a not-so-subtle putdown at Iraqi sovreignty - which was actually restored a year and a half ago. We've had three elections since then. I notice France hasn't exactly gone out of its way to advance the cause of Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite in Iraq, or much of anywhere else recently.

Obviously, obsequieous bootlicking isn't working out too well for French nationals abroad.

I hope the French ambassador is cooling his heels in the lobby of Secretary Rice's office, waiting for a rebuke.

This is the difference between a nation represented by an eagle and a country represented by a chicken.
