France's blunder over Iran





France is playing a duplicitous game in the Middle East. Fortunately, its current diplomats are not as adept at causing mischief as they were when France prevented a consensus on how to deal with Iraq's defiance of the U.N. Security Council. This time France has been quietly backing Iran and its proxy, Hezbollah, against the United States, Britain and Israel in the war raging in southern Lebanon. But France's foreign minister, behaving as ludicrously as that epic blunderer Inspector Clouseau, has exposed French perfidy.

On Monday Philippe Douste-Blazy told incredulous reporters at a press conference at the Iranian Embassy in Beirut that Iran is working to stabilize the Middle East. 'In the region there is of course a country such as Iran - a great country, a great people and a great civilization which is respected and which plays a stabilizing role in the region.' Later he met at the embassy in Beirut with Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, who thanked France for calling for an immediate cease-fire in southern Lebanon.

The outcry in France that followed his words prompted Mr. Douste-Blazy to rephrase his remarks. He told the Jewish Community Radio station in Paris Wednesday that he meant to say Iran had 'a part of responsibility in the current conflict' between Israel and Hezbollah and that it had 'to help pacify the region.'

That was not the end of it. Yesterday Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was attending an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Malaysia, put into words the kind of stability that Iran is seeking. The Associated Press quoted President Ahmadinejad saying that the solution for the conflict in Lebanon is the 'elimination' of Israel. 'Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented,' he said. 'Today the Americans are after the greater Middle East. The Zionist regime is used to reach this objective. The sole existence of this regime is for invasion and attack.'

Responding once more, Mr. Douste-Blazy said yesterday: 'I totally condemn these words,' adding that they are 'absolutely unacceptable on anyone's part, especially from a head of state.' In a further attempt to clarify his earlier remarks, the French foreign minister said that Iran had an opportunity to 'show that it can play a positive and stabilizing role in the region,' but that President Ahmadinejad's statement 'confirmed that this is not the case.'

The same could be said of France. It has an opportunity to play a positive and stabilizing role in the region, but its covert support for Iran - revealed by the blunder of Foreign Minister Douste-Blazy - suggests that is not the case.

On the eastern front in WWII the Russians lost like 100 men to every German soldier. cannon fodder is right! The French can't be cannon fodder. They surrender immediately.

and napoleon would never have been defeated if he hadn't made his ill-fate march to Moscow . . . the Russians died w/o a second thought, but bonaparte was done after that.

Aside from the snails and the frog legs their food is far superior to english food.  But that's where it ends.

And dam England for failing over and over again in France:  100 years war & Napoleanic wars.  hehe  Grin

"World’s Top 50 Restaurants 2005"

http://www.worldpress.org/Americas/2090.cfm

I quote:

Quote
The winner of the coveted number one spot was The Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire, Britain. The pioneering restaurant is famed for introducing the world to delicacies such as snail porridge, mussels in popcorn sauce, and bacon and egg ice cream. The bizarre-sounding dishes are part of The Fat Duck’s bid to create food that is both delicious and fun. In addition to “Best Restaurant in the World,” the Fat Duck also picked up an award for the second year in a row for “Best Restaurant in Europe.”

Napolean got his ass handed to him by the Nelson.

not Nelson,  Nelson died at the battle Trafalgar which was a navel battle. 

How ever the Duke of Wellington, Aurthor Welsley, beat his ass at Waterloo.

Typical French food vs typical English food.  Gourmet Restaraunts aren't indicative of a nations food.  Their every day food is.  However, food is so subjective so what is better is just a matter of opinion.

Wups, apologise for my confusion between Nelson & Wellington.

Ozmo: Why use food as an argument in favour of France and then retract the statement only when you have been owned by factual evidence? 26% of the worlds top restaraunts are in Britain. Britain and American dominate the top 10 compared to France.

By whose list? 

I'm sure there's other lists and other ratings.   (i don't have time right now to research but maybe later)

Food is subjective.

Gourmet restaraunt ts aren't representative of a nations food. Hell maybe some of those places in England  serve french food.

Also it's common knowledge English food is bland.

My point is you back tracking. It's gone from a point in your arguement to being something subjective.
