"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

E3 trying to better understand Iran's nuclear policy: Chirac - Irna

E3 trying to better understand Iran's nuclear policy: Chirac - Irna: "The three European countries -- France, Britain and Germany -- are making every effort to better understand Iran's position on its nuclear program, said French President Jacques Chirac"

One more positive tidbit from the president of France after meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Chirac continued with, We want to do the maximum to also understand Iran's position. This does not mean that Iran has no right to use nuclear energy for civilian purposes but there will be no concessions with regards to non-proliferation."

I hadn't heard that Iran did not have a right to the use of "nuclear energy," I had understood and still understand it is the possibility of what else they might do with nuclear capabilities.

Perhaps Jacques is just "nuancing" a new view so that this can all be negotiated to Iran's liking, non?
