WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- France is no longer an ally of the United States and the NATO alliance "must develop a strategy to contain our erstwhile ally or we will not be talking about a NATO alliance" the head of the Pentagon's top advisory board said in Washington Tuesday. This article pretty much sums it up. French The U.S is getting increasingly impatient with Germany and France. It almost seems like they like Sadaam, and want him to stay ruler. "France is no longer the ally it once was," Perle said. And he went on to accuse French President Jacques Chirac of believing "deep in his soul that Saddam Hussein is preferable to any likely successor." I've said it before, the French are backstabbers, and are no longer a world power.
