France Could Use Nukes If Attacked By State-Sponsored Terrorism

France 'Would Use Nuclear Arms' (BBC Mews Online; Thursday 19th January 2006)

Well, would be ready to use them is more accurate. No definites about nuking someone else just yet! The article comes from a speech French President Jacques Chirac made in response to how France would react to a terrorist attack against it which was sponsored/oragnised by another nation.

What's more is that France would be one of the few countries, in my mind, that would carry out this threat. All you have to do is look at how their secret service has operated over the last few decades - carrying out some very tough jobs with ruthless efficency - and that's the only ones that have come to light. France's secret service is one that I'd put up there with the Israeli's for 'getting the job done no matter what' and not screwing things up in the same way that the Americans have (for example) over the last few years.

I believe France wouldn't hesitate to use nuclear weapons against a foreign state if they were attacked through terrorist means. They wouldn't do it lightly but I can certainly imagine them doing it.

Where is the Life?

Sorry for not updating properly recently. To be honest not a lot has been happening which is why I've been a bit quiet. My life has been consumed by Civ4 (I've had a couple of nights this week where I've gone to bed at 6am and 8am respectively due to playing the damn thing all night....this is why I NEVER usually play PC games folks. I can hit a good one and get very addicted...haven't touched it today as yet though - glances over at laptop - although I think it's only a matter of time).

Having a 'house night in' tonight as both the girls are home today. We'll be ordering out for some grub and watching 'The Wall' which neither of them have ever seen! This amazes me but then again I guess it's partially down to a generation thing. Anyone over 30 will no doubt have seen it many times! I even studied it at school as part of my social sciences lessons.

Got a Collide DVD in the post today - which is great. It's a live show plus a few videos and additional footage/interviews, etc. I really do love Collide and wish they'd play more often - or even come over to the UK for a date or two :(

Also got a couple of Hocico CD's ("Signos de Aberracion" and "Wrack and Ruin") and the "Celebrate the Machines" 10th Anniversary Compilation which contains a variety of artists including Blutengel, Icon of Coil, Combichrist, Hocico and Decoded Feedback.

I am currently searching for motivation. I am will to trade two sheep for it.

Am looking forward to Saturday as I have a few friends coming over at lunchtime for a day of games. We're even playtesting a new game for another company (woo-hoo!) which I have to read the rules and make the pieces for before then (something to do on Friday night I guess!). Hopefully been of assistance to a very close friend who's going through shit, and would love to be of assistance to another friend who is currently very depressed if they'd let me be.

Beyond that. Civ4.

Joke Time....

Copied and pasted from Mr souldestruction's LJ because I thought it was very funny and wanted to share....

Voted Best Joke of the Year in Australia and maybe Wales.

Charlie walks into his bedroom with a sheep under his arm and says:

"Darling, this is the pig I have sex with when you have a headache."

His girlfriend is lying in bed and replies: "I think you'll find that's a
sheep, you idiot."

The man says: "I think you'll find I wasn't talking to you."
