              Chirac Squeaks Again
With George Bush's re-election, Jacques Chirac has been put in an uncomfortable position. The standard rule is that once you are in a hole, stop digging. Yet Chirac continues to burrow. Speaking of the Iraq war he said:
"I'm not at all sure that one can say the world is safer. There is no doubt there has been an increase in terrorism."
implying once again that the war was wrong and proving that the French really do not understand the nature of war. On December 8, 1941 the world also became more violent as the US entered WWII. But I doubt that many would say it was the wrong thing to do.
