Lou Dobbs on France: No Money, No Troops, but Pay Us Si'l Vous Plait


http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0405/14/ldt.00.html

Lou Dobbs, from the transcript of yesterday's show, and his intro to a segment on France:

"France did everything possible to prevent the United States from removing Saddam Hussein as Iraq's leader. It also was significantly involved in contravening U.S. policies in the United Nations and refused to contribute forces to the coalition military campaign and it refused to provide peacekeeping troops after the fall of Saddam Hussein.

And this exchange between Kitty Pigrim, the anchor for the segment, and Lou:

"PILGRIM: Now, although France says it may help in reconstruction, the country is not willing to spend money so far and no troops ever. It may be after Iraq is stabilized, France will be ready to partake in the economy -- Lou.

DOBBS: So, France would be willing to participate in the reconstruction of Iraq so long as those contracts were provided by the United States?

PILGRIM: They want U.N. control over Iraq and they want the United States to bow out militarily and then they would like to participate in the reconstruction.
