French Diplomacy Strikes Again
|::::::::||“Well, Britain gave its support but I did not see much in return,” Chirac was quoted as saying in the Times. “I am not sure that it is in the nature of our American friends at the moment to return favors systematically.”||::::::::|
Yeah, we like that a lot. When Britain allied themselves with us against terrorism, they did it because it was the right thing to do for British citizens as well as American. What we’ve done together is the right thing for Afghan and Iraqi citizens as well. Chirac seems to be working specifically to keep the relations between America and France chilly as possible. I get it that he doesn’t agree with what we’re doing – he’s made that abundantly clear. It’s unnecessary and, in fact, provocative to “get personal” by impugning America’s committment to her allies in this Coalition. It’s just a bit too obvious an attempt at driving a wedge between us and the Brits and makes it hard not to look upon the French as hostile.
