Good for Sarkozy
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, December 11, 2008

Sometimes things just need to be said. The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, articulates the feelings of many around the globe as it concerns Iran's leadership. Frankly I find it refreshing, especially given what the Iranians have said about other countries and their leaders:
In the speech, given on 8 December on the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Mr Sarkozy said: "How is it that a people such as the Iranian people - one of the world's greatest peoples, one of the world's oldest civilisations, sophisticated, cultured, open - have the misfortune of being represented as they are today by some of their leaders?

"I have said this to my friend Kofi [Annan]: I find it impossible to shake hands with somebody who has dared to say that Israel must be wiped off the map.

"I know perfectly well that we must resolve what is perhaps the most serious international crisis we are having to resolve: that of Iran moving towards a nuclear bomb.

"We cannot resolve it without talking to Iranian leaders, but, after what was the Shoah, after what was the 20th century, I cannot sit at the same table as a man who dares to say: Israel must be wiped off the map."
How indeed. But the world continues to crowd their table and they continue to show their arrogance, defiance and disdain. Perhaps if more world leaders expressed their thoughts about cabal's such as those that constitute Iran's leadership, it would do more to delegitimize them both at home and abroad.

Fine. Good for him.

Don’t forget that he’s French. He also leads France, a nation of French people. Thus he’ll say whatever he wants, whenever he wants, as long as somehow France will benefit. If France does not benefit, but others are positively disabled, then it is also worth saying. This is the same as France benefiting. The subject and principles at hand may change from day to day, week to week and century to century.

Nonetheless, it IS principled. Sort of. In a French way.

I for one cannot wait until Iran gets their nuke, which should come in the next year to two years.

Then we should all say, "Obama is to blame for this. He came into office claiming to make things better and Iran got a nuke. Now what do we do?"

The liberals, who hate Israel anyway, won’t be concerned, but the rest of the world will, especially when The Clown™ makes a speech about this move and sounds like the naive dunce that he is.
