AP/REUTERS REPORTS 13:14 14.07.05
The French Government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror
alert level from Run to Hide. The only two higher alert levels in
France are Surrender and Collaborate. The threat level raise was
precipitated by a recent fire which destroyed a white flag
factory, effectively disabling their military

I love France by the way...spent last weekend driving to Macon to stock up on their excellent vino. Get it from the source - and its much cheaper, you can taste before you buy and you get a few days in France eating great food as well. Can't be bad...

France is great. All the more reason to invade. Once were established there (im gonna live in the south near cannes) we should deport the bleeders to a cold damp miserable Island called ??? UK.
