"French President Jacque Chirac has announced his support for lessening pressure on Iran to stop its nuclear program, for fear Hezbollah will strike at French troops serving in Lebanon, according to information recently received in Jerusalem. According to reports, Chirac proposed sending a special envoy to Tehran to reach understandings that would protect the French soldiers serving in the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL)."
These would be the same French troops he was forced to add after breaking his promise to supply armed forces to UNIFIL to stop the war between Hezbollah and Israel. His attitude seems to be ‘let's protect a few French troops while Iran builds a bomb to kill 6 million Jews.'
Smells very Vichy to me.
