The French consider surrendering to the Taliban

Taliban play disgusting propaganda game, French fall for it.
The shock of the pictures compounded anxiety over France's involvement in Afghanistan. The ambush, which took place after President Sarkozy committed 700 new troops to the fighting, sharpened public opposition and misgivings in his own center-right party towards the French engagement. Several parents of dead soldiers have blamed Sarkozy on television for the deaths of their sons. Senior military officers have been publicly critical of the war.
The one war that actually matters (and is justifiable IMO) over there, and the French can't even stomach that!
