Worried that the French, who bent over backwards to make sure as many Americans as possible got killed in Iraq, won't have to pay for their sins?

The due bill is being cashed in a little bit at a time. The latest instalment is the disinvitation of the French Air Force to participate in two of our most successful training exercises -- Red Flag and Cope Thunder. And, though the US will have aircraft present at the Paris Air Show, none will participate in the daily flying demonstrations. The purpose of the Paris Air Show is to sell aircraft, and the French use it as a sales tool for flogging their latest. Without a big US presence, it might not be that well attended.

But the US will be at Farnborough, the British air show. And we will be there in force.
