UPDATE: France Budges! 
The New York Times: Seizing the initiative a day after the announcement of Saddam Hussein's capture, France said today that it would work with other nations to forgive an unspecified portion of Iraq's immense foreign debt.

The offer was a conciliatory gesture to Washington as much as it was a helping hand to Baghdad.

Maybe the so-called "Slap in the face" over contracts wasn't so counterproductive after all?

Sometimes you gotta throw the inside pitch.
