Urbin Report

Sunday, May 15, 2005

No surprise here for those who have been paying attention.

The Telegraph reports that Saddam Hussein backed French President Jacques Chirac’s 2002 re-election campaign (this was prior the US lead invasion that removed the murderous dictator from power).

I could make any number of equally predictable comments about the French government, but I'll refrain and leave you with Rob's on target assement of the news:

The fact that Saddam Hussein wanted to keep Jacques Chirac in power only solidifies the idea that France, under its current leadership, is a regime more interested in appeasing terrorists and dictators than fighting to remove them from power. Which is exactly why, when it comes to the question of war in Iraq, America has been on the right side of history while France has been on the wrong side.
