Breaking News from Le Monde is being noted by NewsMax:
French President Jacques Chirac is attempting to sabotage U.S.-led efforts to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran, according to a report by the center-left French daily, Le Monde.
In a throwback to much-criticized behavior during the buildup to the Iraq war, Chirac planned to send his foreign minister on a secret trip to Tehran in late January, armed with a personal letter of assurances for Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the daily reported.
Chirac wanted “to send a message to the Iranian authorities that a channel of communication can be kept open despite the vote by the United Nations Security Council” to impose sanctions on Iran, the paper wrote.
At this point, what can you say. The article notes that Egypt and Saudi Arabia objected to the French plan. What does it say when Chirac is operating beyond the pale from the point of view of Saudi Arabia? I’m really trying not to curse right now…
The French so richly deserve everything that is going to come their way in the next 5 years.
