France Invades United States (part 2)
Part 1 Here
04/16/04 "ICH" -- Heavy fighting continued across major US cities today as French "Liberation" forces surrounded Virginia Beach, Va. in a showdown with Christian fundamentalist and High Priest Pat Robertson. Robertson was believed to be hiding in a church in Virginia Beach.
Robertson's 700 "Club" was bracing for the French assault and vowed to "die fighting rather than surrender."
French Général Jean Abizaid, in a news conference in occupied Washington, D.C., vowed to "capture Robertson and bring him to justice."
Robertson, a little-known evangelist, became a symbol of national American resistance after the interim president and U.S. civilian administrator Dominique de Villepin closed Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network. De Villepin claimed the CBN was fomenting Christian radicalism and inciting violence.
Robertson mockingly referred to de Villepin as "de villain man" and said that God told him "George Bush will soon be returned to power."
A spokesman for French President Jacques Chirac said such remarks "are not helpful" and can only serve to inflame an already delicate situation. Bush was recently arrested after a tip from an American "patriot" led French forces to his spider hole near his ranch in Crawford, Texas .
Over 1,000 American civilians have been killed this month by French snipers, while hellicopter de cobra fired rockets and German made machine-guns strafed homes and churches.
Americans, initially in fear of French and German coalition forces are now turning to anger as mounting casualties stretch along wider portions of the United States.
The fragile American council, set to take power on June 30, has become increasing concerned about the heavy handed military tactics used by the French forces against the occupied Americans. German coalition forces occupying the southeast portion of the country expressed growing dissatisfaction as well. One anonymous German Field Marshall criticized the French for excessive use of force and declared the French ?are behaving like Nazis."
In a news conference Chirac defended the use of force against the American civilians saying that the insurgency was caused by troublemakers and "freedom hating" terrorists. Coupled with former Republican "God" remnants and Conservative Party loyalists, these holdovers of the former regime of George W. Bush "will be defeated and they will not deter the French from bringing peace and democracy to the silent majority of American people, " noted Chirac.
Chirac looked somber and tired during the news conference but felt that the American occupation was going well. When asked about the growing number of French casualties, Chirac replied, ?C'est La Guerre.?
With his poll numbers dropping below 50 percent approval for the first time in his presidency, Chirac is coming under increased criticism by the French media and socialist candidate for president, Jean Francois Kerre'.
Kerre', a decorated war hero who served during the French occupation of Vietnam in the 1950s, is the likely candidate from the Socialist party to oppose Chirac in France's November elections. Wounded at France's defeat at Dien Bien Phu, Kerre' returned to Paris in the 1950s and opposed the French occupation of Vietnam and later Algeria. Kerre' initially supported Chirac?s decision to invade the United States but now, with French public support collapsing, he has become harshly critical of Chirac's policies. In a recent speech Kerre' mocked Chirac with, "I have three words for Chirac: ?C'est La Guerre.??
If elected president, Kerre's plan to bring peace and democracy to the United States is to share authority in America with "Old Europe."
Chirac's vice president, Alphonse Francois de Sade, known as "Marquis," continues to insist that America is stockpiling weapons of mass destruction and that the American invasion is going according to plan.
According to Vice President de Sade, it is likely that chemical, biological and nuclear weapons were moved to either Canada or Mexico.
Vice President de Sade warned Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and Mexican President Vicente Fox that they, too, risk invasion if they don't stop American terrorists from smuggling banned weapons into Canada and Mexico respectively.
De Sade added, "Canada and Mexico must improve security along their borders with America."
Prime Minister Martin and President Fox vehemently denied storing banned American weapons. French separatists in Quebec concurred with de Sade's remarks and supported his ultimatum.
Short on food and clean water, with no electricity, and casualties estimated to be nearing 50,000 dead and 200,000 wounded, the plight of the Americans under French occupation is beginning to attract world condemnation.
Chirac, at a press conference with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Easter Sunday, said that he was praying for casualties to ebb in America.
"Every day I pray there are fewer French casualties, but I know what we are doing in America is right," noted Chirac. He mentioned nothing about American casualties.
"C'est la vie," concluded Chirac.
