Finally !!

Due to French resistence to the untited effort in Iraq I did a post in November of 2005 about what a corrupt lying coward Chirac was. I think now is a good time to revisit it given this good news that was relevant then but largely ignored by the delirious anti-Bush press:

*** November 8, 2005 ***

"This message comes to you today from an old country, France, from a continent like mine, Europe, that has known wars, occupation and barbarity. A country that does not forget and knows everything it owes to the freedom-fighters who came from America and elsewhere. And yet has never ceased to stand upright in the face of history and before mankind. Faithful to its values, it wishes resolutely to act with all the members of the international community. It believes in our ability to build together a better world." - Dominique de Villepin 02/14/03

Speech to the Security Council before Operation Iraqi Freedom

Hummm...How has that noble statement stood against the passage of time ( and captured douments?)

French corruption scandals ( Dead Link)

Chirac allies among 47 accused in major French corruption trial ( Dead Link )

French Connection to Oil for Food Probed

Former French UN ambassador held over Iraq oil-for-food

This is how I saw them in the Summer of 2003, a view that has stood the test of time.
