force to prevent a Libyan
takeover of Chad, and the French

following the bombing of the
French barracks in Beirut clearly
demonstrate the lack of compunc-

Surely, then, there was ample
'orecedent for cooperating if not
participating in a retaliatory
trike against terrorist centers in
Libya, and ample justification
so in that both French citizens
nd pocketbooks have been vic-
Qms of Libyan-inspired ter-
-orism. This, despite France's ef-
..,orts to remain free of violence by
ermitting the movement of ter-
orists and weapons to transit
rench soil. Also, since the
nited Kingdom had permitted
ne of its bases to be used as a
:aping off point for , the U.S.
aid, France would not have been
lone in facilitating the strike.
Perhaps the basic reason for
rance's infuriating refusal to
ermit U.S. aircraft to overfly her
