and is, of course, castigated by legions of scrotumless Euroweenies.
Frankly, I think Chirac has precisely the correct line on an Iranian bomb. Israel's response should be to continue upgradings its missile defenses. The US and Europe, otoh, should sit back, b/c if we hit them and their program did turn out to be civilian (in a clever move by folks who have been proven to be equally clever rulers), US foreign policy would be totally discredited.
Chirac's line is perfect: "fine, build a bomb, and if I see anything outside of Iran glowing across the horizon at night, your whole country is glass."
What's the problem with that? Only a Euroweenie would know...
