This picture was taken in Doha seaport; it shows a French helicopter taking off from one of their auxiliary ships. One of the Qatari ministers was being taken for a goodwill flight. This picture was taken of the French Navy prior to the Gulf war in Iraq during a goodwill trip. As we all know, the French are very proactive selling arms in the Middle East, but unwilling to help in Iraq. Maybe it would have harmed future arms sales in that region. I leave it to you to decide why!
