See this guy.? He’s the French President, and he’s really pissed right about now, because the US, England and Australia have made some kind of deal that gets Australia a couple of nuclear subs so that they can better defend their waters. The French guy is pissed because he had a deal to build submarines with Australia and now it’s gonna be somebody else. It’s always about money, isn’t it? The US didn’t want France in on the deal because they would make less money if they had to share. Now France is doing all kinds of hissy fit type things to communicate to the US just how pissed they are. Maybe the US should just start increasing the amount of French wine that’s allowed in the country, and everybody can get drunk and talk about it. Most politicians remind me of my kid when he was about two years old.
