Thanks to France for pitching in to help save Libyan’s effort to found a new government. Did France’s President suddenly discover how wonderful was the cause of Libyan freedom after his deporting Roma and disrespecting Muslims and immigrants in general did not raise his standings in polls?
Don’t know – what do you think? I am still wondering why the slaughter of women in Ivory Coast does not cause a Security Council meeting and why on Darfur continued killings and politically motivated rapes in Congo – we hear……..?
Libya crisis may save Nicolas Sarkozy from electoral humiliation
The French president certainly needs something to prevent him coming third in next year’s election
It would surely be poor taste to accuse Nicolas Sarkozy of leading France into combat for purely selfish political reasons – but that won’t stop some in the president’s inner circle wondering if Operation Odyssey Dawn might just save the skin of a man who, a matter of days ago, seemed destined for electoral humiliation. Ever so discreetly, they will be hoping Libya can do for Sarkozy what the Falklands did for Margaret Thatcher – anoint a successful war leader deserving of re-election.
