France did not. It's leaders pretended to do so in order to get more votes, by not going into Iraq. If they had actually stood up, they wouldn't have sent any troops to Afghanistan for instace. They would also be fighting the alleged CIA "torture flights" more intensively.
Besides, if France had invaded Iraq, do you think the riots wouldn't have happened?
Furthermore, your country has its shares of political correctness too. I heard that school edidtions of Huckelberry Finn have censored the n-word and if you do something against someone who happens to belong to an ethnic minority, it will automatically be a "hate crime".
