France's foreign minister said Wednesday his country is ready to take part in airstrikes against extremist fighters in Iraq if needed.
Laurent Fabius called for international mobilization against "this transnational danger that could reach all the way to our soil."
Oh my God! We finally passed that "global test!"
Gosh, the last time the French went on about a "transnational threat," they meant America under George W. Bush!
UPDATE: France is willing to strike targets in Iraq but not Syria:
France offered Wednesday to take part in airstrikes against extremist fighters in Iraq if needed, but insisted on a more careful tack for Syria.
It is interesting. France would not participate in destroying the Saddam regime. But now that Saddam is gone, France will participate to defend the new government.
So I guess the destruction of the Saddam regime was okay, after all, from the French point of view.
