I have the wind at my back and smooth seas ahead. This is a Day on the Bay for me. Everything I have been predicting is coming true. The predictions are easy because I have seen this pattern repeated throughout history. I have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
Anyway, regardless of the jokes and non-intelligent banter, lets please discuss the issue at hand. Perhaps I should have more carefully considered my wording, but we are all (hopefully) adults, so will the French stake a harder line towards Islam as a result of this threat or reconsider.
Most importantly, America is repeating exactly the same mistake made by the Chinese of the Ming Dynasty. And we are now paying the price for this mistake. The price will be much higher as time goes by.
Is it bad that when I first saw this thread I read it as "Biden threatens French" and actually found it believable?
1. Sarkozy's government would never in a million years negotiate with terrorists, let alone "surrender" to them.
2. I suggest the usual ignoramus elements in this thread educate themselves on the ultra-efficient French counter-terrorism units. You all have no ****ing clue what you're talking about.

The French are efficient in providing internal security within France. But France is worthless in a foreign fight in south central Asia. They come too few, insufficiently armed, without air cover, and without recon. The French have no real expeditionary capability except in Africa.
