That Hurts A Little

If there’s one thing that just ain’t right, it’s America getting smacked for not being strong on the international stage.

It’s expecially bad when it comes from the French.

The real work of the U.N. Security Council should have been condemning and again warning North Korea and Iran that they are not welcome into the nuclear club and that every effort is going to be used to stop them from continuing on that path. It took French President Nicolas Sarkozy to call the Security Council exercise weak and to chastise its members, including President Obama, for not condemning Iran and North Korea more forcefully.

“How, before the eyes of the world, could we justify meeting without tackling them?” He went on to say: “We live in the real world, not a virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions.”

Ouch.

    Actually, this is a big improvement from the French. Under Chirac, the French didn’t seem to mind at all if Iran got nuclear weapons. Under Sarkozy, the French have aligned themselves completely with US policy on this issue, and have been very, very vocal. Which is good.

    Though, recall, France gave Israel it’s nuclear weapons, so perhaps they have a guilty conscience.

    Oh, it’s a huge improvement from the French.

    But it hurts to have the US called out by them.
