  1. James,
    Mark Twain said it best:

    France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes.”

    How little things have changed since Twain lived.

  2. Betsy Newmark links to this article today. It reveals that France still sees the E.U. as a balance to the United States, as well as to our NATO military alliance. The article details how the French, in the face of another genocide on the African continent, are delaying our NATO salvation efforts in Darfur, Sudan.

    I just saw Hotel Rwanda last night. This movie puts a big black blister on Chirac’s government. Chirac is neither friend nor ally to our nation.

    I can’t get upwind far enough. Phew!

  3. When are we going to come to grips with the fact that France opposes everything America supports. They are our enemy. It is only cowardace and lack of resources that prevent them from engaging in open military hostilites. Its time to end the NATO Farce and begin treating France like the Soviet Union.

  4. The trick then, is to elect Democrats to the Presidency. Confident that the U.S. wants to destroy itself, France will stand up to China, cut off arms shipments to Middle Eastern and African dictators, torpedo the E.U., demand that the U.N. stop coddlings thugs and murders (and balance the books, to boot) and then ship both of its remaining Catholic priests to the U.S. to proselytize this Godless nation.

    Of course getting the French to do what we want all turns on convincing the French we’re trying to commit national suicide, whilst avoiding it in actuality. Keeping the country out of the ditch could prove quite difficult with, say, John Kerry’s or Howard Dean’s hands on the national steering wheel…

  5. I’m no fan of current French policy or of Chirac. Moreover, the French-US relationship has always been tense at best. But, they are not the Soviet Union. They have elections, for one thing. In 2007 Sarkozy could win. He would be much easier to deal with.
