Tony Blair and French President Jacques Chirac are meeting today and everything is said to be just fine. But, of course, it isnt. It is not only Iraq. Note this article from todays Daily Telegraph that makes clear that not only are there disagreements over Zimbabwe, but Blair just blocked a $3 billion deal that would have allowed a French company to build two new British aircraft carriers. Which reminds me of a French joke I heard the other day: How many Frenchmen does it take to defend Paris? We dont know. Its never been tried.
