Rocket Man, I checked out

Rocket Man, I checked out your post from yesterday’s Times of London about France. I think the Times got it mostly right — France is moving “considerably closer to Washington’s position on Iraq.” Why? Because, realizing that Saddam has no future, it wants to be a player in the post-Saddam Iraq. In this respect, France is a less stand-up version of Pakistan, which worked with the Taliban for years until it saw the writing on the wall. In short, with apologies to my french wife, France is not a true ally but rather a supremely opportunistic nation that we can occasionally work with.
