    400 frenchmen on the shore of the gulf, the Pasdaran are certainly already shivering in their pants. :D Here comes the mighty ´grande nation´ ready to penetrate a region never being colonized by ´la civilisation´ before. :roll:

    That Sarko guy is really a clever salesman and his new customers are also certainly impressed by his achievements as ´homme d'amour´. :)
    (...have they told him that already 500000 Iranian's are living in the Emirates.:confused:)

    I somehow doubt that this will be popular within the circles of the French Elite and that resistance and delay will occur at every step.

    I also doubt that the facility will survive beyond Sarkozy's Presidency.
