Dick Morris provides a good

Dick Morris provides a good summary of France’s relationship to Iraq over the last 15 years, concluding that “The only consistency in French policy toward Iraq since the Gulf War has been support for Saddam Hussein to weaken U.N. and U.S. measures against him.” France’s view of Iraq and other Middle Eastern terrorist states has been dominated by “French commercial deals” involving oil. Morris joins many other pundits in predicting that when the time comes, France will climb on the anti-Saddam bandwagon: “Eventually, France will cave to the U.S. position: To fail to do so would be to consign the Security Council, France’s only forum for the exercise of global power, to irrelevance.” Personally, I think I’d forgo the pleasure of France’s company for the more useful goal of seeing the Security Council weakened.
