    I was actually considering Lipo's rhetoric about Iran, and wondering how politically it could be worked. Bush et al. would seem to have undivided support, at least for their general feelings toward posited Iranian desires. Now there can be no real doubt of Sarkozy's allegiances (can there?), not so much to Bush, but having found out a little more about his heritage I'm presuming he will be anti Iran and thus pro conflict. The question is what is the timeline here? We have Bush coming up to an election, Blair leaving and elections for parliament in France. Can the players timetable this so it works for them?

    Actually interesting moves in Paris. Sarkozy names a member of the Socialist party as Foreign Minister. Good tactical and strategic moves there Nicholas, anyone want to be that after the elections the Foreign Minister won't be a Socialist ;) That is, as per thread, if Sarkozy achieves dominance in parliament.

    Ahhh...was speaking a French colleague at work and it seems that to take France to war Nicolas needs a 2/3rds majority. Good work...Vive la France....
