The California Republican

This blog was created in order to report on a streak of conservatism currently taking hold in California. Recent events, and voting records show much of the same here in California, but the trend is one that is certainly in our favor.

France Warns Iran

French President Jacques Chirac stated today:

"Countries which respect their international obligations in terms on non-proliferation and show proof of the peaceful nature of their activities should be able to benefit from technologies that are allowed under international rules... But no weakness can be shown to those who renege on their commitments."

Ok, Mr. Chirac, define weakness.

In a unanimous vote, the U.N. Security Council deemed that Saddam Hussein had renegged in Resolution 1441. As I recall, France led the "weakness-cowardly" crowd there.

Putting the pieces together one by one, I would almost assume that France must not be making tens of billions of dollars off of their relationship with Iran; therefore, they are willing to stand on the side of morality... until Iran ups its offer anyways...
