I was going to post about this last night but didn’t get to it. Then today, out of the blue, I get an email from a friend in France wondering how things are going. So I dug up a picture taken today and here ya go:
Though a lot of American are pretty critical of the French when it comes to international affairs and the war, let’s not forget that we are, after all, on the same side. There are going to be many more days in Afghanistan like the day that left ten French troops dead, and the more friends and allies we have, the better.
So, in the spirit of friendship with my buddy the frog, let’s all just get along for a while.
From an American perspective, Sarkozy’s election is a mostly positive development. From a French perspective, the election of anyone besides Bush this fall will probably be seen as a positive development.
