My current, favorite president – Sarkozy!

Posted by liloladenvers on September 28, 2009

President Sarkozy of France was not impressed with President Obama’s performance at the United Nations last week.  In his comments to the General Assembly (which were not reported in most US media forums) were biting and to the point.  This story in the London Telegraph tells all about it. 

“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.

“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.

“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,” he continued, referring to Israel.

The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.

“If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,” he said.

Mr Sarkozy has previously called the US president’s disarmament crusade “naïve”.”

I think I’ll have some French fries for lunch and maybe some French toast for dinner.  Vive la France!!

    I’m not sure I agree, but perhaps I’m just as bright-eyed as Obama. Why defeat ourselves? Why the pessimism? Someone has to strive for the seemingly impossible for the sake of all of us. http://www.newsy.com/videos/voice_or_noise_at_un_general_assembly
