Barely have I posted a diatribe on the ultimate responsibility of a sovereign, and already some people echo my sentiments. Well, let’s not be too humble – it is no less than the French FM who decided to confirm my thoughts on the subject.
“For several hours, there has been a bombardment of an airport of an entirely sovereign country, a friend of France … this is a disproportionate act of war,” Douste-Blazy told Europe 1 radio station.
Oops… It seems that, while confirming that Lebanon is indeed a sovereign country, the guy succeeded somehow to distort the meaning. Hmm…
OK, it could be explained. One or the following must have happened:
- My poor French (non-existent, to stick to the truth)
- Acoustic distortion – happens all the time with the echo
- Inherited genetic problems that the double surname families are plagued by
Further research is indicated.
