    I disagree, taking the side of the winner when they won, is weakness, supporting democracy and freedom when the chips are on the table, shows fortitude.

    Here are key facts about trade between the two countries as of July 2007:

    TWO-WAY TRADE

    Worth 2.24 billion euros ($3.09 billion) in 2006, up 18 percent from a year earlier. French exports of 434 million euros vs imports of 1.90 billion euros from Libya.

    France was Libya's No. 6 foreign supplier in 2005, with a market share of 5.6 percent. Main French sales include capital goods, cars, food, pharmaceuticals and perfume.

    Oil accounts for 97 percent of France's imports from Libya, which supplies 2.5 percent of total French crude oil imports.

    Italy is by far Libya's biggest export client.

    INVESTMENT

    Overall figures for French investment in Libya were not available but oil supermajor Total is thought to be France's biggest investor in the country by far.

    Libya has approached France's Areva about nuclear energy and earlier this month it selected BNP Paribas as a partner for Sahara Bank in the first partial privatization.

    Also:

    24/10/2010 22:07:00
    Tripoli-Libya and France signed on Thursday a Declaration of Intent aims to establish a 'strategic partnership' between the two countries in various fields.

    The declaration called for the activation of the 5+5 dialogue as to be able to influence regional policies, broadening its scope and promoting the fight against illegal immigration.

    The declaration was signed by Secretary of Industry, Economy, Trade and Investment Mr. Mohammed Hawaij and France's Industry Minister Christian Estrosi.

    The strategic partnership includes the construction of a nuclear power plant in Libya. The document provides for bilateral talks prior to the signing of an accord between the Libyan Nuclear Energy Authority and the French Atomic Energy Agency. This will facilitate the establishment of a nuclear legislation and the conduct of studies necessary for the building a nuclear power plant.

    A team from the French Atomic Energy Agency will visit Libya for the implementation of a program for capacity building and plans to construct the nuclear power plant.

    Hawaij invited, after the signing ceremony, invited French companies wishing to invest in Libya's industrial areas to do so in such a way that companies from both countries will be able to market their products in either nation.

    You don't care about the murder of civillians bubba, not as long as your president doesn't. as an ideologue you are precluded from standing on principle, and instead stand on what you are told. This is fact.


    In fact what's most abhorrent, is how you try to blame the civillians as an "unkown", and use that as an excuse to say "**** em".... talk about classy.

    as is becoming more typical, your post makes no sense, there rev

    please point out where i have said i
    don't care about the murder of civillians
    you assert:
    as an ideologue you are precluded from standing on principle
    please identify what principle that i have refused to stand on, there rev

    you insist:
    and instead stand on what you are told
    what was i told rev? please post something which will show it

    you (wrongly) opine:
    In fact what's most abhorrent, is how you try to blame the civillians as an "unkown"
    please copy/paste the post where i have written such a statement

    once you show us that, then point out where i used such statement in this manner as you have insisted:
    and use that as an excuse to say "**** em"
    rev. you are a VERY loose cannon. you haven't the firepower to defend your words. i know that before daring you to do so, but also want to post this challenge to publicly embarrass you for your over-the-top unfounded allegations, once more

    Cowardice or a lack of respect for you? I think it's the latter. Calling folks cowards on the internet is well, rather ironic.


    Back to the topic? France showing more balls than you or Obama here?
