[casi] The French Were Right

The French Were Right

"Be careful!" That was the exclamation-point warning
French President Jacques Rene Chirac sent to "my
American friends" in a March 16 interview on CNN, just
before the Pentagon began its invasion of Iraq. "Think
twice before you do something which is not necessary
and may be very dangerous," Chirac advised. And this
was not some last-minute heads-up, but the culmination
of a full-brief argument that the French advanced
against the perils of a U.S.-led intervention, pressed
over months at the United Nations in New York and at
meetings in Paris, Prague, and Washington. There were,
of course, other war critics in Europe and elsewhere,
but nobody presented the arguments more insistently or
comprehensively than did the French, God bless 'em."
