He Is So Wrong, and His Beak-lipped Friend Is Too!
On the eve of the 60th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, French President Jacques Chirac rejected President Bush's statements comparing the war in Iraq with the liberation of Europe from the Nazis in World War II.

With Bush at his side at a joint news conference, the French president said he understood why Bush made the comparison, but he added, "It is very difficult to compare historical situations that differ, because history is not repetitive."

Bush compared the Iraq war with the World War II liberation in a speech last week at the Air Force Academy as a way of justifying the U.S. effort to the American people and putting it into historical context.

Sorry Jacques, history is indeed cyclical. He need look no further than France's complicity in destabilizing Haiti just a few .::months ago::. and helping to imprison its leader (shades of .::Pierre Toussaint L'Ouverture::.).

Not-so-sorry Chimpy, WWII is nothing like your war of choice against Iraq. The US is Iraq's occupier, not liberator.

Get it straight you two!
