Chirac Surrenders

Jacques Chirac folds:

President Jacques Chirac has broken ranks with the US and Britain by calling for the suspension of UN Security Council action against Iran during negotiations over its nuclear programme.

In a radio interview yesterday before flying to New York for the UN General Assembly, the French President provoked a diplomatic storm by backing Iran's demand that the Security Council should halt its involvement in the nuclear dossier.

As I noted in the post below, M. Chirac has a kind spot in his heart for dictatorial regimes developing nukes and paying for French assistance.

Update: Tammy Bruce points out the real reason Chirac is waffling--the almighty Euro again.
