Chirac to Blair: You Got Screwed

From the AP:

Britain got very little in return for supporting the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, and U.S. policies make it all but impossible for anyone to act as a bridge between Washington and Europe, French President Jacques Chirac said in an interview published Tuesday.

“I am not sure, with America as it is these days, that it would be easy for someone, even the British, to be an honest broker. Perhaps that will change, but that is the current state of things,” Chirac was quoted as saying in an interview with British reporters in Paris.

Chirac is due in London on Thursday for a two-day visit to mark the 100th anniversary of the Entente Cordiale between the two nations. The French president will meet with Blair and enjoy the hospitality of Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

He’s bringing Tony a present that he picked up at the gift shop: Bush Invaded Iraq and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt.
