France trying to win over USA

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

During the Iraq war the French and USA had huge disagreements on how to proceed. In the USA saying the word France or French was like swearing in church. Now with a new president in both countries they are trying to rebuild their ties. French president Mr. Sarkozy is saying all the right things to Mr. Obama. While it seems to be working as they have been seen standing next to each other during vital speeches. However the two sides still remain in disagreement over troops in Afghanistan.
