France Is Against Providing Proof of the Iraq Arms Buildup

Maybe this confuses you too. Didn't virtually every European country just get done saying we shouldn't mess with Iraq because there was no proof? Now France is saying we shouldn't show anyone the proof.

"These are not issues which we can deal with publicly. This calls for serenity and seriousness, and we should therefore beware of any leaks and any saber-rattling proposals," Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin told France Info radio.

De Villepin said it was important to act responsibly in evaluating whether a "country could own chemical or biological weapons, and if it could turn into a threat."

He added it was important that France evaluate such risks together with its European partners. "The international community is today very worried, which justifies our determination in the face of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction."

Determination to do what? Evaluate? Hide the information from your own people? Then insist they are against any action?
