Viva la France!

I really enjoyed this article. I suggest you read the whole thing. I guess I can start eating French fries and buying French wine again. I do have to admit, I never stopped the kissing thing.
The French change of attitude in Iraq destroys one of the key arguments of all those in the US who opposed the liberation of Iraq. The argument is that by toppling Saddam, the US alienated some of its key allies, notably France.

John Kerry, the Democrat presidential nominee in 2004, used the argument as a key campaign theme, echoing the views of other leading figures of the American left such as Michael Moore, Jane Fonda and Noam Chomsky, not to mention the financier George Soros.
Read it and weep, Nate.
