France secretly upgrades capacity of nuclear arsenal
Now HERE is some interesting news...
France has secretly modified its nuclear arsenal to increase the strike range and accuracy of its weapons. The move comes weeks after President Jacques Chirac warned that states which threatened the country could face the "ultimate warning" of a nuclear retaliation.
A military source quoted yesterday by the Libération newspaper claimed France had tinkered with its nuclear weapons to improve their strike capability and make this threat more credible.
This ought to put a stick in the eye of our Franco American Blue Party, eh? Their beloved more "peaceful", more "civilized", more "intelligent" and more "caring" France is putting more bite into their nukes?
John Kerry must be having convulsions.
But, this is just one more bit of evidence that Europe just might be finally waking up from that long sleep, covered by their U.S. security blanket, that they have been having since the end of WWII. Let's hoe they are finally waking up to this danger and not just engaging in meaningless saber rattling, at least.
