Foreign Government Roundup

Courtesy of Demure Thoughts. Or courtesy of Temple of Jennifer. Or Jennifer, at Temple of Jennifer's Demure Thoughts. I have no idea how to link you, Jenny.

My favorite one:

"Former French Foreign Minister Hubert Verdine: 'There will no doubt be a sort of hangover in world opinion since almost all nations, with about three or four exceptions… wanted a change. There is a basic lack of understanding, which is lasting and deep, between the American people and the rest of the world and it goes in both directions. The world no longer understands very well what America is.'"

Heh. Jennifer has some choice words for Monsieur Verdine. I'd like to add a few words: Australia. Afghanistan. USA. And in January, I will add the word Iraq.
