Sarkozy receives Qaddafy

France receives today Muammar Qaddafi for a state visit. Again, I must revisit a prophetic post of mine:
She also seems to be the more principled candidate of the lot. She has said that she will be willing to increase pressure on Iran and on states that do not respect Human Rights adequately, going as far as letting her name associated to a possible Beijing Olympic boycott if China refuses to put pressure on Sudan over the disgrace of Darfur. If one candidate of the lot might be able to resist some of the indecent pressures of Total like companies she might be the one.
Indeed, Sarkozy has shown to be someone ready to do anything for a fat check for French goods offer. Not that it is necessarily bad, the French state needs to pay for its huge welfare benefits, but some counties manage to do so without being as cynically flashy. But today even his glamor minister, Rama Yade, could not help herself criticize that visit. The Guardian note failed to reassure me on Sarkozy commitment on human rights.

I did not know I would miss Segolene Royal so much by now. Only the socialists in France these days speak against creeps as Qaddafy or Chavez or Poutine or..... Even the lefties are on occasion in bed with Sarkozy on these things. Revolting.

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
