"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

France Shows Her True Colors

In U.N. Resolutions - Get Real I wrote, "How does France get in on this one? France couldn't defend Burgundy yet they are up front playing world 'diplomacy.' Sorry, the whole resolution gig is feckless on the surface and deficient of substance."

I further noted, "does having France on any world stage matter or is it simply a hindrance. In Beirut French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy met with his Iranian counterpart and praised Iran for playing "a stabilizing role in the region."'

The point being, why is the U.S. at the hip with France in attempting a solution in Lebanon. In fact, who are we to negotiate with Hezbollah, a terrorist group. Shouldn't they still be accountable for our dead marines, killed by Hezbollah in 1983?

FOX News reports France has now proposed new language on a total cease-fire and Israeli pullout. French President Jacques Chirac said Wednesday that giving up on efforts to secure an immediate Mideast cease-fire would be the international community's "most immoral" possible response.
xxx Chirac, speaking at a news conference in southern France after an urgent meeting with three Cabinet ministers, implicitly criticized U.S. reservations about pushing for an immediate cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah.
xxx "The most immoral of solutions would be to accept the current situation and give up on an immediate cease-fire," Chirac said.

France has once again turned against the U.S. in favor of dictators and terrorists. The most immoral of things is to have France on the U.N. Security Council or as a partner in anything.
