With A "Certain Firmness”

February 14, 2009

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Wednesday that he hopes Obama "launches talks [with Iran] with a certain firmness." Story here.

Which begs the question, what kind of talks have France and its European partners been having with Iran for the past 5 years?

(btw, as to Sarkozy's declaration that "Kuwait can count on France", memo to Kuwait: For your own protection, do not, we repeat, do not under any circumstances hold your breath...)
