    Royal should announce that if President Bush does not withdraw troops from Iraq by next April (as requested by US congress). She will pull the French Troops from Afganistan. Iraq war is making the war on terror look like was on Islam and that harming peace and harmony in the world. This will make her more popular in France and the whole world.
