A French Leader Emerges


The London Times reports the following:

Military intervention in Iraq would be “legitimate” even without the approval of the UN Security Council, a French MP said. Alain Madelin, a former economy minister from the ruling party, was the first French politician so far to have voiced such a stance. “Our place is at America’s side,” he said, and compared the Iraq crisis to the situation before intervention in Kosovo.
