French troops are attempting to enforce an often-violated October cease-fire and protect their nearly 20,000 citizens in the country. France said Tuesday it will rush hundreds more troops to Ivory Coast to build its force to 2,500 soldiers, who have received orders to shoot anyone threatening their ability to enforce the cease-fire.

Just make sure you build a huge mosque in whatever replaces the Twin Towers. We damn well better make the replacement the tallest building in the world, by a leap and a bound. Push the limits....

Fonda = [puke] As for the French soldier. I hate the French as much as most of you [:D], but I respect their soldiers protecting their citizens.

FAMAS is what he's holding. I agree, we need to build an even larger building. But are the people willing to work there?

Is that an Aimpoint on the FAMAS? Looks like it. One thing about the FAMAS; to me the barrel always appears to be pointing upward.

Miller - bet you a zillion dollars that thousands of people would line up to work in those building again, just to spite the Muslim scumbags. Wouldn't you? CMOS

That's not your typical Frenchman. He's a member of the Foreign Legion. For all we know, he could be German, British, Canadian...etc. and yes, Fonda is a puke. I did see something humorous regarding her on Fox News today. It seems that she had a reception party waiting for her arrival in Israel. They were following her around chanting "HANOI JANE! HANOI JANE!!!"

Well, to be honest, my goal is to make as much money as I can, without working in the city. That aside, hell yea I WOULD!! I guess I don't have as much faith in the general populas as I should.

I think the frenchie picture is backwards ... he's holding the rifle in his left hand (uncommon) and his beret is folded over his left ear (which I've never seen before, especially when it's worn like an american)
