"Well if you guys really mean it I guess we're in." But of course, they still maintain thet UN Resolutions should be sought.

"At the moment, there is no question of France committing itself in Iraq," said Michèle Alliot-Marie, defence minister. "Having said that, it is clear that the French armed forces are always ready.

Nicolas Sarkozy, interior minister, said on Tuesday that the government would expel convicted foreign terrorists and cancel their citizenship if they were French. He also said he had been refusing entry to Muslim fundamentalist preachers. "Each week, I end up refusing entry to a certain number of preachers or imams who don't speak a word of French and who want to fuel mosques and places of worship with ideas contrary to the values of the republic," Mr Sarkozy said.
