More Reasons to Like the French Again,...
Rice is talking with nations about curbing Tehran's nuclear plans despite the NIE report.
NATO foreign ministers agreed to stay the course in seeking fresh measures at the United Nations to persuade Iran to stop uranium enrichment and reprocessing. The decision came despite the release Monday of a new U.S. intelligence report that concluded the country halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003.
Yeah, yeah, yeah,...more paper wasted pressuring I-Am-a-Mad-Jihad and his cronies to stop and play nice.
What sticks out in the story is this:
Earlier yesterday, ahead of Rice's meetings in Belgium, the leaders of France and Germany expressed similar sentiments, calling for a two-pronged approach of pressure and negotiations with Iran.
"I think we are in a process and that Iran continues to pose a danger," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in Paris at a news conference with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in response to the American findings.
Sarkozy also sees threat
Sarkozy, who supports Washington's view, said he backs new sanctions.
"The threat exists," he said.
Seems to me a few years ago, Chirac et fils would have told the US to get lost! The Bush Doctrine must be working,...but you'll never hear the MSM admit it!
