Replace France with India on Security Council?

Thomas Friedman, who has continued to become more serious in his analyses since 9/11, has an interesting proposal in yesterday’s New York Times: Replace France with India on the Security Council. The important point here is not that this is going to happen (besides, if the UN continues its slide into irrlevance it will not matter) but that it is not a preposterous opinion. France is being silly, petty, incoherent, and is using up her moral capital. He says, "There is room for disagreement. There is no room for lack of seriousness."
