i've long detested the french. this is no secret. they're spineless, cowardly, their economy and political structure is weak, and their language is dying. and i dismiss french canadians for the same reasons.
but, as happens, i can be wrong. this time, i might be. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3442638,00.html. the french president announced in his first major foreign policy speech that "a diplomatic push by the world's powers to rein in Tehran's nuclear program was the only alternative to "an Iranian bomb or the bombing of Iran.""
i hope this guy has a backbone. i'd love to see a new, courageous europe emerge in the next few years.
