France's Ethical Foreign Policy

What the fuck are the Froggies playing at? They have supported China's anti succession law which allows China to attack democratic Taiwan which poses no threat to mainland China. On top of that France wants to sell advanced military hardware to China. The EU currently bans arms sales to China due to the Tiananmen Square massacre. China has never apologized for, nor recognized that what it did in 1989 was in any way wrong. China also has an appalling record on human rights not to mention the fact that it has since 1948 fought wars with India, Russia, Vietnam, Korea, Mongolia and invaded Tibet. So of course it makes perfect sense for France to support the warmongering dictatorship instead of the one part of China which is a democracy. Do the Froggies now feel so impotent in the world that they will do anything to promote Chirac's view of a "multi polar world"? Sucking up to an increasingly powerful China may bring increased trade for France's faltering economy, but what about the medium to long term?

Are they so bone headed -read Gaulist- that they would risk Exocets or other European weapons being used against American forces? Imagine the consequences of an American aircraft carrier being hit with a French made Exocet in some future war in the Taiwan Straight(I can see Euro Lefties almost drooling at the prospect).

The French Constitution includes The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen which is supposed to apply to all men without exception not just French citizens. Perhaps the French should amend their constitution to say except Chinese serfs.

Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite...
