Cutting off the French
: Once the war is won, it will be time to turn our attention to cutting off French.
It will be easy.
The first thing to do is to make up with the Germans. They are clearly dying to make up. Schroeder now agrees that Saddam should go. Fischer is nuzzling up to us. They already regret picking the French (the French!) over us. Once the war is out of the way, it won’t be an issue anymore. We can make up.
We continue to stay close to Blair (and that appears to be the reason why Bush is bothering with the Northern Ireland issue in their next meeting; fine).
We continue to cozy up to Eastern Europe (remember how we helped with that Yugo mess).
We act quite grateful to our friends in Spain and Portugal.
We don’t worry about Russia and China; they’ll always be pissy.
We then ignore the French. We make it clear that the French proved to be hostile and irresponsible at the U.N. We cut them off.
It’s the right thing to do. And it will feel so good.
