COMPARE AND CONTRAST….A British official

COMPARE AND CONTRAST….A British official today expressing his exasperation with French rejection of their compromise proposal:

American reaction today to a similar proposal put forward by Chile:

Even before it was formally presented to U.N. Security Council members, a Chilean compromise proposal on Iraq was dismissed by White House and State Department officials as a “nonstarter.”

Those damn frogs sure are unreasonable, aren’t they?
