    Bin Laden threatens France in new message

    Bin Laden threatens France in new message - Yahoo! News

    CAIRO Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden called on France to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan in exchange for releasing French hostages being held by affiliates of the extremist group, according to a new audio message broadcast on an Arabic news channel Friday.

    "The exit of your hostages out of the hands of our brothers depends on the exit of your troops from Afghanistan," bin Laden said in the message broadcast by al-Jazeera.

    Bin Laden reminded the French people of President Nicolas Sarkozy's refusal in November to withdraw the French troops from Afghanistan and to negotiate with al-Qaida over the hostages.

    "Your president's rejection is a result of being a hireling to America and a green light to kill the hostages ... his stand will cost you a high price on different aspects inside or outside France," he said.
    So, will Sarkozy and the French capitulate to Bin Laden, or will they stick it out?

    Is this even a serious question?

    Of course it is. I tend to think Sarkozy will dig-in since he seems to be taking a hardline against Islamic fundamentalism.

    Of course it's not. We all know that France is making plans to fold up to AQ, as we speak.

    Just like Canada folded, the other day. They're a buncha real badasses, too. Not!!!

    French troops were throwing down their weapons and approaching any al Qaida cell that would accept their surrender. They follow in the steps of other famous surrender monkeys.

    It is just another pathetic France bashing thread.

    France has been battling terror far longer than the US and been far more successful in many ways.

    So it aint like France would "surrender" now, since they have not done so to terror the last 40 years.. so why all of a sudden start now... just because a bunch of ....... American's think it is funny to make fun of the French surrender in WW2.

    You are incorrect, I love French culture and history. I speak French. My question and the reason for this thread was to begin a discussion as to how the French may respond to this threat. Especially in the current political environment where many view France as becoming increasingly anti-Islam.

    We don't think it's funny. We know it's funny. Epsecially since the French hate us so much.

    Easy Apdst, the French did help the US during the revolution, and sold us the Louisianna Territories on the cheap, so don't hate too much. And they do not hate Americans per say, just the arrogance of this is our world and you owe us for WWII that some Americans express.
