Oh, you mean like Dubya wanted to attack, NO MATTER WHAT OR
WHO? THAT kind of unilateralism, 747-451?
No, Scorpio, I'm saying France is in the same boat and guilty of the same thing--typical French hypocrisy; who does the same thing the US does.
So because France dared to oppose Bush's plans they are now "unilateralist"? What about Bush and his repeated opposition to issues important to Europe (Kyoto, to name just one) or his repeated ignoring of that continent's legitimate concerns..
, read my post. Germany, Russia and a slew of others opposed this war, and that is fine. But the French went out of their way to oppose us, to a much greater degree than Germany or Canada for instance. That distinction implies that unlike Canada or Germany, we will not be able to mediate our differences as easily, if at all. PS
-I never said I had a problem with dissention, but I do have an issue with French methods--especially since they employed, with notable ease. the same hegemony and "unilateralismn" as the US--which they made such a "big deal" about.
"I see... Any opposition to the war (or any policy advocated by Bush) is by definition infantile and driven by unterior motives. Bush's motives, on the other hand, are as pure as driven snow. Riiight... BTW, I'm no fan of Chirac's, but there is a certain irony when a Bush supporter calls other politicians infantile."
, please! read the post. As I have said many times, I have no problem with diseention, however, the childishness goes all the way around from "idiot" to "B#$%^&D". Nice to see how many others will lower themselves to "Bush's" level
, BTW, I don't support our incursion into Iraq. and I view Bush as a failure on the domestic front. However, I wont stand for the pot calling the kettle black, whether it be from Europe or Scttsdale.
