"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

France Ready to Send 1,600 More Troops to Lebanon

"Two thousand French troops will thus be placed under the United Nations in Lebanon. France is ready, if the United Nations wishes, to continue commanding this force." - Jacques Chirac
From the NYTimes: "France led calls for a robust international force to safeguard the ceasefire and was heavily criticised abroad for its initial, hesitant approach."

These guys are just too much!
