Jacques Chirac has clearly taken leave of his senses:
French President Jacques Chirac said Friday that France would not go along with a new United Nations resolution allowing the United States and Britain to administer postwar Iraq.
The French president said at a European Union summit he would “not accept” a resolution that “would legitimize the military intervention [and] would give the belligerents the powers to administer Iraq.”
“That would justify the war after the event,” Chirac told reporters.
He probably wants Mugabe or TotalFinaElf to administer Iraq.
