French President Nicolas Sarkozy congratulated his US counterpart Barack Obama on Monday on his determination in hunting down Osama bin Laden and agreed both countries must fight on against Al-Qaeda.

"The president spoke this evening by telephone with President Barack Obama," said a statement from the Elysee Palace.

"The head of state hailed the determination of President Obama and of all those who, for the past 10 years, have pursued the leader of Al-Qaeda with tenacity and courage," it said.

"President Sarkozy also expressed his thoughts for the victims of the September 11 attacks, and for their families and loved ones," it continued.

"The two heads of state agreed that, beyond the historic defeat that the death of Osama bin Laden marks for Al-Qaeda, the just and necessary battle against terrorist barbarism and those who support it must continue."

They can be used against neighbors such as Pakistan and China but the United States is EVERYBODY'S neighbor. It has already invaded and occupied Afghanistan, a part of traditional India and will expand its occupation to the rest of the subcontinent. I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. The U.S. invasion of Afghanistan means the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. by India; see my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy for India Over U.S.', which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title, for what India needs to do. Russia and other white countries are U.S. allies. These are the enemies to destroy. All other enemies will be taken care of automatically. Conventional arms are worthless for destroying the United States. Nuclear arms to destroy the United States with a FIRST STRIKE -- this is the key -- are cheap and easy to produce with technology India already has. All the money earmarked for fighter aircraft etc., and more, must be pumped into research, development and production of missiles able to deliver India's nuclear warheads -- in the thousands -- to the continental United States.
