A friend? Mais non!

Last week’s terrorist attacks were France’s equivalent of 9/11. Except that after America’s 9/11, there was no million-person solidarity march in the streets of New York. There was in Paris last Sunday, and more than 40 world leaders attended. Canada sent a cabinet minister.

But the United States sent no one of note. It was a day of shock and grieving and solidarity, but America was unrepresented. France is America’s ally in NATO; more than 200 years ago, France was America’s first ally, aiding in its war of independence.

The diplomatic damage was done. John Kerry, the U.S. Secretary of State, was dispatched to Paris on Friday – nine days after the attacks – to try to fix things. He promised to give France a “big hug.” That’s what he said. As if the French were waiting for that, from him.

    Kerry evidently tried some of the new ‘product’ from the medical marijuana farms in Washington State. He obviously overindulged.

      I think Kerry personally know James Taylor from when they both used to shoot up heroin together.

    • The retail stuff is much better.

    • He is brain fried alright.

  • Obama is an incompetent bimbo going out of his way to humble the USA.

    Thanks for the hope and change – liberals.

    Obama inspired by this song is going to create a new force against terrorism called the Folk Song Army!

    I thought Taylor is a convicted shoplifter….you know how they treat thieves under the Sharia?

      I am not aware of that, but he did admit he was on heroin for a number of years.
