The weasel update 

The ever-helpful French:

"Michel Barnier, the French foreign minister, is on his way to America to lobby Kofi Annan, the UN secretary-general, and the Bush administration to allow Iraq's transitional leaders to refuse [after 30 June] if US commanders order Iraqi troops into battle."
The French, of course, are unwilling to contribute troops to any peace-keeping force, even one run by the UN, but they're still keen to sabotage anyone else's efforts to keep Iraq from descending into chaos and civil war.

I'm waiting for "The Onion" or "Scrappleface" to run with this news story: "US retrospectively pulls troops from D-Day; Describes the occupied France as a 'black hole that is sucking up' the world."
