TO ME, IT STILL COMES DOWN TO A SIMPLE QUESTION

Are you with us, or are you with the terrorists? Or, as protesters in the sixties used to say, are you part of the problem or are you part of the solution? By definition, you have to be one or the other.

It's abundantly clear that French President Chirac is, therefore, part of the problem.

And this has absolutely nothing to do with the "saving" of France (from itself) in WW2. This is a here and now problem and the French are digging themselves a very large hole. Chirac has tried to carve out some sort of Swiss-like neutrality in this conflict but, as my relatives in Kentucky would say, that dog won't hunt.

It may not be this week, next month or two years from now. There will be a point in time when this strategy (if that's what it is) will bite them in the ass.
