These guys are NOT the same height (someone’s standing on a Tom Cruise box), but they are at approximately the same hotness level
French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, addressed US Congress yesterday. Hopefully we can now put to bed the long-standing debate over France and what they did or didn’t do during WWII — you know, now that it’s 60 years later and we’re onto another war in which France isn’t the enemy.
Here’s what Sarko said, in case anyone cared to rehash France’s role in the war for the billionth time:
“The men and women of my generation heard their grandparents talk about how in 1917, America saved France at a time when it had reached the final limits of its strength, which it had exhausted in the most absurd and bloodiest of wars.
The men and women of my generation heard their parents talk about how in 1944, America returned to free Europe from the horrifying tyranny that threatened to enslave it.”
France got a serious beatdown in WWI and wasn’t exactly back up to snuff when Hitler came goose-stepping into town. Sorry if you were expecting guys who were still in wheelchairs with their legs blown off from WWI to be up for another round.
Anyway, we need to remember that, like Canada, France is fighting this war on terror, and Sarko says they’re committed to staying active on the Afghanistan front. Staying the course — which is more than the liberal Democrats want to do.
And this is what Sarko had to say about the idea of a nuclear Iran:
“Together we must fight against proliferation. Success in Libya and progress under way in North Korea shows that nuclear proliferation is not inevitable. Let me say it here before all of you: The prospect of an Iran armed with nuclear weapons is unacceptable.”
Ok, great — but what does that mean? Do we just keep talking, while Iran keeps fiddling? Because if there’s any doubt that they are, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad put that to rest yesterday when he said that they have 3,000 nuclear enriching centrifuges spinning around, with more on the way “every week”.
Funny, that’s exactly how many seconds of patience I have left!
It’s like the kid who’s playing video games when he’s supposed to be doing his homework — and every time you tell him to put the damn game away, he says, “Uh hummmh.” But then ignores you and keeps playing.
At what point do we get up, grab the damn game and kick Mahmoud up to his room?
Oh, and by the way, Israel — the next door neighbour — is freaking out. Can’t say that I blame them, really.
WTF do you mean this maniac has 3,000 centrifuges?!
