Diou, Qué Marinade!

In France, the bananas of the nouveau regime are no smarter than the tired cabbages of the ancient. One of those legumes, Osif sénateur UMP de l'Oise, fired up a little gem:

"President Assad told me he exerted his influence to ensure Hezbollah adopted a responsible attitude and showed restraint during the events in Gaza, Syria's role has been positive " President Nicolas Sarkozy's envoy Senator Philippe Marini told reporters in Beirut. after a visit to Damascus.

Has Le petit Nicola really been convinced that his investment in Bashar was still worth it, he would have sent him a bigger banana. However, the rants of this second fiddle sound just like a stockbroker talking up some junk bond. But that maintains the link just enough, in case the Obama(-Clinton?) administration decides to keep Syria "showered with incentives to tempt it away" from Iran.

Or maybe Le petit Nicola has assurances that Bashar will still respect him in the morning, too. But maybe not the morning after...

Or will hassouna confirms that little tall tale?

...Mais que diantre alloit-il faire dans cette galére!

Le petit Sarkozy est trop naive pour comprendre la politique du Moyen Orient!
Man is he serious! really? Sarkozy does not know that HA's restraint has to do with its inability to play with Israel the giant this time! I am so disappointed with you Mr Sarkozy...anyway, just his choice of the first lady shows what type of men he is!

J,
I just love the junk bond salesman analogy. It is perfect. As the junk bond salesman ( read Merrill Lynch, Lehman, Bear...) unloads his suspected merchandise it blows up in his face and he becomes part of the collateral damage :-) The visions of grandeur that Sarkozy has exhibited since day one have dealt him one setback after another.

Le Petit Napoleon....The guys makes me cry from laughter....
It just shows how clueless Sarkoczy and his "senior" advisors are when it comes to the Middle East...
