Should we be intrigued or scared?

This appears to have been passed by by many news sources, but it appears that Jacques Chirac is threatening a hard-line against states endorsing terrorism. I have a few questions though; why did he not feel this way about Iraq a few years ago, a country that is known to have had terrorist training camps? (Reading the article, I guess one might presume that he would state that 9/11 was not against France, but it was against a country that is technically an ally to France). Also, what kind of retaliation may come from a nuclear attack, and who would be targeted?
