Farewell, Jacques Chirac
It´s about time. One of the most sinister leaders of a western Europeian countrys ever is putting his shoes on the shelf. Thank you for that! The man has done more ill to France and to the Europeian Union than any other person in the history- save for Adolf Hitler maby. He has been a notorious brownnoser for dictators- especially islamic ones through all of his reign as a president of France. He is the closest to a dictator western Europe has come to for over 60 years.
And when the new president of France (hmm, how long will I spell that countrys name with a capitol "F"?), was democraticly elected. "Youths" reacted emidiatly by burning more than 500 cars, smashing store windows and attacking law enforcment officers. How mature is that, huh? Oh, my bad it is called islam- no maturity (or humanity [or intelligence]) connected to that!
Chirac on the other hand has a stunning record of...
Ponder closely, for example, what Chirac has had to say on Africa, where his country has enormous influence, in many places far outweighing ours: During a visit to the Ivory Coast, Chirac once called "multi-partyism" a "kind of luxury," which his host, president-for-life F?lix Houphouet-Boigny, clearly could not afford. During a visit to Tunisia, he proclaimed that since "the most important human rights are the rights to be fed, to have health, to be educated and to be housed," Tunisia's human rights record is "very advanced" -- never mind the police who beat up dissidents. "Africa is not ready for democracy," he told a group of African leaders in the early 1990s. On Britain: "The only thing they have ever done for European agriculture is mad cow disease . . . You can't trust people who cook as badly as that."
On Russia: "For his contribution to friendship between France and Russia," Chirac decorated Vladimir Putin last year with the highest order of the Legion d'Honneur, a medal reserved for the closest foreign friends of France (Churchill, Eisenhower) despite the deterioration of the Russian president's human rights record. A few weeks later, Chirac decided to hold his 74th birthday party in Riga, Latvia, after a NATO summit. He invited President Putin, disinvited President Bush and snubbed the Latvian president in the process. As the diplomatic scandal grew, the guests all begged off, and the birthday dinner never took place.
On Saddam Hussein: "You are my personal friend. Let me assure you of my esteem, consideration and bond." On Eastern Europe supporting the United States in the United Nations: "It is not really responsible behavior. It is not well brought-up behavior. They missed a good opportunity to shut up." On Iran's nuclear program: "Having one or perhaps a second bomb a little later, well, that's not very dangerous." Theoretically, Chirac was supposed to be negotiating with Iran to give up its nuclear program at the time.
On hearing a French business executive address a European summit in English: "deeply shocked," he stormed out of the room.
Yeah- just being an asshole really and truly!
