Ah the French. Famous for croissants, pastry, the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, the gift of the Statue of Liberty to the U.S. in 1886 have now become the diplomatic equivalent of a delinquent problem child by publicly criticizing an apparent deal between the U.N.'s P5+1 (U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany) and Iran in reaching a preliminary agreement with that country over its nuclear development program; this after they were in full agreement with the plan during the earlier private diplomatic negotiations.

Apparently having second thoughts, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in a public statement to the press put it this way, "One wants a deal"but not a suckers deal". [i]

Here in the U.S. Senator John McCain tweeted, "France had the courage to prevent a bad nuclear agreement with Iran. Vive la France". Thank you John for those keen words of insight, not.

McCain who never saw a war he didn't like and associated with the "bomb, bomb Iran" mad chorus but who in 2003 condemned France for not joining the Bush mobs "coalition of the willing" invading Iraq now views the new French diplomatic sniping more to his liking cheering the public denunciation of the deal by Fabius, the equivalent of tossing an IED, (improvised explosive device), from the sidelines into the diplomatic confab.

Rumors became rampant on the motives behind the French move i.e. France's desire to sell arms to Saudi Arabia and the other Persian Gulf sheikhdoms while a former French official Francois Heisbourg, now Chairman of the International Institute for Strategic Studies intoned France "hates signing on the dotted line anything that appears to have been produced by Americans".
