A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The French: The corrupt Jacques Chirac has, as he has opined before, "missed an opportunity to shut up."

Chirac was angered at Bush's statement that the European Union should give Turkey a firm date for its admission to the group. France doesn't want Turkey to join and Turkey's biggest booster in the EU is Britain.

It doesn't make for a happy family.

But Chirac definitely needs a kick in the butt.


Stung by Mr Bush's call for the EU to give Turkey a firm date for accession, Mr Chirac responded: "He not only went too far but he has gone into a domain which is not his own.

"He has nothing to say on this subject. It is as if I were to tell the United States how it should conduct its relations with Mexico."


Interesting analogy. So, explain to me why France should have any input on how the United States should conduct its relations with Iraq?

I'm also asking myself WWJFKD? Sen. Kerry has made one of the foci of his campaign that he would conduct foreign policy in a fundamentally different and better way than George W. Bush has. So, how would Kerry juggle the competing interests of two key U.S. allies? (FYI: I don't consider France an ally, but Kerry does.)
