#1 Everything here indicates taking the appeasement approach to new and dizzying heights. What a load.

Hmmm... So we have the PM's in a 69 and now the FM's in a menage a trois? WTF comes next? A daisy-chain of deefense?

This really is getting out of hand. And I gave Straw credit for better taste. Sheesh.

#2 Jeepers... why is it that everything out of this Frog's mouth sounds like nonsensical claptrap? Is it the French language that jumbles up his thought processes so what comes out is a kind of "idea salad", or is he just stupid? Or is this a result of a profound moral bankruptcy permeating all of French culture?

Inquiring minds want to know...

#3 We’re annoyed because we learned from North Korea that you can’t trust thugs who promise to stop their nuclear programs in exchange for ’civilian nuclear technology’. And youse guys weren’t paying attention.

Why would you expect France and Germany to care about this? If their dealings result in a mess in Iran, they sure as hell aren't going to bother cleaning it up, and would probably not be in any position to do so anyway.

#4 Hey, don't be too rough on the French. Le Pin serves a very useful function as the devil's advocate, when no rational person in most any other government wants to be embarrased to put forth such insane, self defeating, and self destructive plans for action.

#5 Can you believe this? The french make me want to puke... seriously they are despicable. They just announced to the world and specifically Iran that they don't have to listen to the UN and allow inspections of their nuclear program because the UN demands will not be backed by force if france has any say. They just made the world more dangerous yet again just by opening their ignorant mouths. Can we get these morons off the security council ASAP? Every day I despise the French more and more... I just don't know if they are completely stupid, completely immoral or some mix of both...

#7 Didn't we attempt 'appeasement' with Hitler back in the 30's. Didn't France learn back then that appeasement does not work with these people?

At least Germany should remember it dammit!
