Irdc.ir: A glimpse of history, shows us that France has always been looking for its demands acquisitively in the international relations, and has done any kind of crime to achieve them. Here are some examples:
The Algerian War
On 18 May 1830, France attacked Algeria under the pretext that Algeria had threathened France and asked them pay their 7 million franc debt three years ago.
The French didn't expect such resistance. Amir Abd-ol-Qadir Algerian, fought with the occupiers for years. But due superiority of France in ammunition and military equipment, they took over Algeria by massacre, rape, torture, after oppressing the resistance of Muslim libertarians. Finally, in 1962, after the Algeria War of Independence, with 500000 - 1500000 casualties for Algeria, they declared independence and chose Algiers as the capital. The French's excuse for starting the war, was to punish the ruler, but the result was destruction of Algerian prosperity, and killing, torturing and raping thousands of Algerian people, and decapitation of Muslims by French troopers.
