France Onboard For War Against Iran; Congress Cheers!

More ugly (but not unexpected) news from the BBC:
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has told the US Congress it can count on France's support against terrorism in Afghanistan and Iran's nuclear plan.

He received a standing ovation during the first address by a French president to both houses in more than a decade.

The French leader, who is on his first official visit to Washington, will later hold talks with President George Bush at Mount Vernon, near Washington.

They are expected to discuss Iraq, Iran and other Middle Eastern issues.

In his address through a translator to Congress, Mr Sarkozy drew applause from lawmakers when he stressed: "France is the friend of the United States of America."
Who is Sarko kidding? Friends don't let friends drive drunk. Why would friends help friends start wars?
