On the French: Great piece in today's post by Charles Krauthammer. France isn't going to veto a U.N. resolution authorizing force because if they do, the U.N. is screwed. Forever. As Krauthammer puts it:

So much for legal authority. Yet France insists that we need a fresh piece of U.N. paper. France "cannot accept an intervention . . . that would not follow the path of law," declared French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin.

Now, when Louis XIV declared that something was unacceptable, it carried weight. Napoleon, too. And Clemenceau. What exactly does French non-acceptance mean today? A cheese embargo?


Theme? We don't need no stinkin' theme!
