FUNNY SORT OF ISOLATED:

France Offers U.S. Symbol With Iraq Trip (KIM GAMEL, 8/19/07, AP)

The French foreign minister paid an unannounced and highly symbolic visit to Baghdad on Sunday—a gesture to the American effort in Iraq after years of icy relations over the U.S.-led invasion. Bernard Kouchner said Paris wanted to "turn the page" and look to the future. [...]

"Now we are turning the page. We want to talk about the future. Democracy, integrity, sovereignty, national reconciliation and stopping the killings. That's my big aim," Kouchner said in English after meeting the Iraqi foreign and prime ministers.


Meanwhile, Jacques Chirac was last seen buying soap-on-a-rope.

Did he bring back the billions France stole from the Oil for Food program?

Mrs. Erp, France didn't steal billions in the Oil for Food program. Corrupt people like Mr. Chirac did. France got the blame but no money to give back. Corrupt officals are the worst sort of traitors.

A distinction without a difference.
