Is Sarkozy the new Blair?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Couldn't help noticing Sarko taking the European lead when formulating a transatlantic response to the ongoing Georgia spat, and that the US seems only too happy with this state of affairs.

    So...have we finally fallen out of favour across the pond?

    Or have even they realised Brown's terminal prognosis?

    No doubt the Grinning Monkey would have been on the first plane out if he was still around.

    Might also explain this.

    If you going to surrender you might as well call in the experts
    He'll help them get out of the situation and teach them how to blame everyone else but themselves yet still claim all the glory once it's sorted
  3. Tony,as I like to call him,is working very hard to find peace in the Middle East.
    Meanwhile,the Frog,has very poor political standing at home,and also needs to boost his ego and his height with shoe inserts.
    Also in a pathetic attempt to make him appeal to French males,he married a French porn star.
  4. Only in the sense that he's a preening, vapid, rightwing git.

    France currently holds the Presidency of the EU, hence it was their job to represent the Union. Here's how the UK did a couple of years ago according to the BBC News site.
  6. Sarkozy is most definitely not the new Blair, other countries take him seriously, and don't think they're talking to Americas' w*nk sock.

    If Europe wanted to find someone to firmly disengage the Euro-tongue from America's butt , either he or Merkel would do just fine.

    The only thing he shares with Blair is an incredible nous of how to use media.
  7. True but Sarkozy has the support of Bush and without US agreement the Georgian Peace Accord would not have been formulated.

    De Villepin was true foreign policy visionary.
