    In French Deck, Bush Is King of Diamonds
    Thu Sep 25, 8:57 PM ET
    PARIS - The ace of spades? Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld gets the honor in a new French deck of cards. President Bush (news - web sites) is the king of diamonds and Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) the joker. The game takes a jab at the famous deck of cards created for U.S. soldiers hunting down ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) and other leaders from the deposed regime.

    "I found it completely indecent to present a manhunt as a game," said Thierry Meyssan, the man behind the French deck. "We thought this card game would allow us to ... explain why we consider the government of George Bush a threat to international security."

    Meyssan is the author of a one-time French best seller, "9-11: The Big Lie," claiming that no plane ever crashed into the Pentagon (news - web sites) on Sept. 11, and that the attacks were plotted by a faction within the U.S. military.

    Now, Meyssan said in a telephone interview, he wants to expose "the 52 most dangerous American officials."

    Meyssan heads the Voltaire Network, a left-wing association that put the cards on its Internet site.

    A little over 2,500 decks a la francaise have been sold, at $9.20 each, on the Internet in recent weeks, Meyssan said. There are plans to sell the decks in stores soon and translate them into 10 languages, he said.

    Each card carries a photo of the official and a text explaining the choice. Bush, as the king of diamonds, is described as "the president of a baseball club."

                  Sorry I can't use the words I'd like too in order to describe my personal feelings about France (never did like them anyway). I'd have to use almost every derogatory term I know and some I could make up. It would get me banned for good by the WEB TEAM (no Purple Heart but KIA).

                    France, the only good thing about them is that they give us things to make fun of.
