  1. I know you must have seen this article, which discusses Europe’s common hatred for the French.

  2. How could the French President appoint a man as Prime Minister who is so patently anti-American? This is not at all helpful for Franco-American relations. de Villepin’s immoderate use of language about the United States and his clearly duplicitous dealings with the United States and its enemies should have disqualified him from serving in this post. The President of France has a moral and ethical obligation to pursue policies and appoint individuals which would narrow the gap between our two nations.

    France already suffers from a world-wide opinion of it as a rogue nuclear state, as well as a state that pursues a foreign policy bereft of international sanction. Its unilateral military interventions and neo colonialist policies have made it nearly a pariah in the world. Only a foreign policy dedicated to rapprochement with the United States can restore any of France’s former prestige on the world stage. This appointment does not pursue that goal, but make it much more difficult to achieve. [/sarcasm]
