Duelfer Report Shows Futility of Requiring Grand Coalitions

How do we feel about our friends, the French?

The Duelfer Report is a huge vindication for the Bush administration’s decision to remove Saddam Hussein. There can be no more doubt that Saddam was a serious threat to the security of the United States and the world, and that our so-called “allies,” specifically the United Nations, France and Russia, were rotten to the core with corruption and bribery. There’s no mystery why these entities were opposed to our plans. They were getting fat and rich off the misery of the Iraqi people.

I read a really good article, I think it was in TIME, a couple months back about France. Basically they see themselves not as our ally, but as the great power that will keep the United States in check.

Essentially they want to play both sides (the U.S. and the Muslim/Arab world), and keep themselves relevant by being a thorn in the side to both.
