Alliés

By popular demand, I'm going to post something in French (but don't worry Tommy, I'm going to continue with English after that). Here is what Michèle Alliot-Marie (MAM, our ministre de la défense) said yesterday to Donald Rumsfeld who went ranting again on the old Europe:

Etre alliés c'est un statut qui implique le dialogue et le respect de l'autre. Cela veut dire que l'on évite les accusations infondées, que l'on évite les interprétations fallacieuses, que l'on évite les assertions mensongères.

Brilliant.

[Warning Babelfish users, the translation is jerky, but you should get the point easily.]
