: Jacques Chirac finally does something helpful: He says the EU will fly Iraqis in need of medical care to Europe for treatment.
I’ll try to take Chirac at face value and ignore the possiblity that he’s trying to pluck heartstrings with lots of pictures of civilian injuries caused by America and cured by France. I’ll ignore that.
But I won’t ignore what he calls us even in this context: “the occupying powers.” I prefer to call us the liberating powers, Jacques. Or you can call us the winners.
