    President Jacques Chirac announced today that France would be
    deploying two elite units of French troops to Iraq in the event of
    war. Five hundred crack troops from the 42nd Groupement d' Instruction
    en Abandonment (42nd Surrender Instruction Group) are mobilizing to
    assist the Iraqi Army in the finer points of military surrender.
    "The immediate capitulation of an armed force is a delicate and
    intricate tactic in which we French have much experience." said
    Defense Ministry spokesperson General de Armee Francois-Phillippe
    Hommes de Petit-Pommes.
    "There is a certain protocol in laying down your arms or fleeing the
    battlefield. To wave the white flag while remaining pompous and
    insufferable requires experience and training.
    The French Army believes it is second to none in the fine art of
    surrendering quickly. The record of our armed forces in that area
    speaks for itself. The Iraqi performance in giving up without a fight
    during the last Gulf War was slip-shod. We hope to improve their level
    of surrender execution for the next war."
    General Hommes de Petit-Pommes further announced that 1,000 advisors
    from the Regiment de Collaborateurs Francais will also be dispatched
    to Iraq to assist the Iraqi people in colloborating effectively with
    any occupation force.
