Chirac Undercuts the US Position On Iran's Nukes
What a surprise! France has stabbed us in the back again! Amir Taheri explains in this Jerusalem Post column how completely Jacques Chirac has undercut the U.S. effort to maintain united Security Council pressure on Iran to discontinue its development of nuclear weapons. Ironically, France's perfidy may have the unintended consequence of making a diplomatic resolution of the crisis less likely. Indeed, Taheri discusses how similar meddling by France and Russia dissuaded Saddam Hussein from making the concessions necessary to avoid the U.S./British invasion of Iraq.
