French "Fighter" Jets

This is just too funny.

Nine French fighter jets and a radar plane stayed overnight at Atlantic City International Airport after bad weather prevented them from returning to their aircraft carrier off the Virginia coast, authorities said Friday.
The planes, low on fuel, initially asked for permission to land Thursday at a United States military installation but lacked the clearance number, said Noel Clay, a spokesman for the U.S. State Department.The planes, which had been conducting military exercises, then sought and received permission for emergency landings at the airport here around 3:45 p.m.

Hmmm. They are conducting military exercises, which are generally dress rehearsals for actual situations, & they run out of fuel while over a foreign country. Lucky for them we don't hold grudges. Imagine if this had happened over a country that was really ticked off with them. Gen. Schwartzcopf's comment that "going to war without the French is like going hunting without your bagpipe" is starting to make more sense than ever. Maybe we should thank them for not joining the coalition. Incompetent allies like this can be a bundle of trouble.
