“My position is that whatever the circumstances, France will vote no.”
- JACQUES CHIRAC (As quoted in the New York Times, 3/11/03)
Is this responsible leadership?
I believe there are valid reasons to vote on either side of many issues. And that there are currently valid reasons to vote against this resolution as well.
And, I’ve respected France’s stance in the past.
But by declaring that no facts can change his mind, Chirac now looks as biased towards Iraq as Bush is towards war.
