Countries Surrounding Sudan

France and Chad have now friendly and fruitful relations, independently from any sort of diplomatic undertakings related to recent controversial affairs (“Chad releases 7 held on kidnapping charges”, International Herald Tribune, November 4 2007). France and Libya have also now friendly and fruitful relations, independently from any sort of diplomatic undertakings related to recent controversial affairs (“Bulgarian nurses and Palestinian doctor freed from captivity”, International Herald Tribune, July 24 2007).

It’s interesting to note how keen Sarkozy is on having friendly and fruitful relations (independently from the fact that it’s on purpose) with countries surrounding Sudan. Maybe that’s useful if France needs to invade that country. Oh, but that’s probably a silly hypothesis. France does not have an international war of its own, one that would enhance national pride, serve the struggle against unemployment, prevent national gems such as Dassault’s Rafale from rusting, and be internationally perceived as Bernard Kouchner’s humanitarian war. Well, not yet.
