i have no corroboration of this story, but i trust my source.

when bush went to france before the war to try to convince chirac to go along, they went into a room with a few ministers, and bush immediately launched into his (likely much rehearsed) spiel. chirac raised his hand and said "stop. i am not sending any of my soldiers into iraq because it is poisoned with uranium from the last war. i am not going to have french boys dropping dead of cancer in 20 years and their families suing the government. there is no way i am sending troops, period." (obviously paraphrased)
