While deer-in-the-headlights Brobambi shuffles and jukes and jives in the UNGA with back-at-ya swagger to socialist bananalands, Sarkozy demonstrates that he is a real leader. Not a strutting schoolboy prancing through the UN hood with his inner posse of Chavez, Ortega, Zelaya [oops, couldn't make it] and Mugabe like Brobambi, but Sarkozy knows REALPOLITIK.
For reasons yet to be determined, the National Post appears to have de-linked their own front page story on their website. Mr. Spillius reported a similar (albeit watered-down) version in the UK’s Telegraph.Obama: “We must never stop until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the earth.”
Sarkozy: “We live in the real world, not the virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions.”
The rest of Sarkozy’s remarks were, well, remarkable:“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.
“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.
“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,” he continued, referring to Israel.
The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.
“If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,” he said.
Mr Sarkozy has previously called the US president’s disarmament crusade “naive.”
No American newspapers seem to have featured Sarkozy’s justifiably derisive remarks about Obama’s naivete regarding the realities of nuclear technology. Still we can be grateful for the freedom of the press, as embodied and celebrated by the Newseum — including the chilling reconstruction of segments of the Berlin Wall. These serve as a reminder that however oppressive or myopic the powers-that-be, news cannot be stifled.
This reticence of the news media in the US fits in with Brobambi's "disappeared" grad thesis at Columbia U.
Not one American newspaper save perhaps a couple of conservative journals has even MENTIONED the "lost" records. The libtard mafia screeches and yells "look over there" or calls one a "racist," as it did when trotting out senile failure and pathetic loser James Earl Carter like the insane cuckoo clock he is.
Thank God for Sarkozy. et sa femme! While Gordon Brown sinks in his own s-pile and Brobambi demonstrates that he is unfit for high office, the French president shamed Brobambi into calling Iran on neutrality.
