France, vilified

This morning I heard some Broadway Bridges construction workers in a heated debate about America's military strike against Iraq:

"I don't think it's right that our guys are risking their lives out there in some damned desert..."

He's not for a pre-emptive strike, I'm thinking. He's not for intervention.

"...while France is just sitting on their asses drinking wine!"

France is vilified again. Good people, do not vilify France. But what do you make of Total Fina Elf?
