Those Crazy French

My Government teacher has been pushing outside studying of France. Some interesting news on France (all links from Yahoo Full Coverage):

U.S., France Agree on Iraq Draft.
UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The United States and France reached agreement Thursday on a new Security Council resolution on Iraq, removing a key hurdle toward passage of the U.S.-drafted plan for tough new weapons inspections.

According to French diplomats, the United States agreed to change wording in a key provision that would declare Iraq in "material breach" of its U.N. obligations. The change addresses French and Russian concerns that the original wording could be used as a hidden trigger for an attack on Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

The French aren't crazy, they just don't like us.
