Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Comments added to De Villepin's courageous speech ...

Bashing France was actually a smart move from the Bush administration. It was focusing the attention of american people on a small country which was opposed to war, and somehow hid them the fact that it was not France which was against the war, but most of the world.

... When I think that my country, France, was treated and is still treated as à coward country because of this wonderfull and true speech.... I'm very disappointed by the US. I thought you were à big country, but the only thing you can do is to criticize by using propaganda.... Because of this, French army is now considered as cowardice...

Don't miss the conclusion from 14:22, so noble compared to the vulgarity of the US establishment - politicians and media- toward the French at that time!

Bashing peacemakers (progressive left) is a fascist favorite pastime in contemporary politics ...
