I must say, thats a very bold statement, very unusual for Chirac to say the least. I would have expected that kind of statement from Bush, but Chirac? I wonder what Irans response will be?
As the ancient Gauls used to say "The sky is falling on our heads".
Not much chance that statement would have come from Bush, it is not generic enough for one of his. The key difference is the use of the term "State sponsered terrorism" that clearly separates the likes OBL from Iran.
