Richard Pearle, chairman of the Pentagon's Policy Advisory Board, said today that "France is no longer the ally it once was" and that NATO "must develop a strategy to contain our erstwhile ally or we will not be talking about a NATO alliance."

Sadly, I tend to agree. France's foreign policy has long seemed to be centered around an attempt to check American influence around the globe, regardless of the nature and character of that influence. This seems to be have become clearer and clearer over the previous year.
