French President hails end of Saddam regime

Well, we all waited for this one to come.
Interesting is also what is said about the "business" relationship between Chirac and Hussein....

But there are rumblings in France about the French President's stand following the broadcast of archive pictures of the then French Prime Minister Chirac with the then Vice-President Saddam Hussein in a French nuclear power station.

The image is an reminder of his success in sealing a deal to sell Saddam two nuclear reactors.

The French public is also being reminded that, for all his criticism of military action to rid Saddam Hussein of weapons of mass destruction, it was Prime Minister Chirac who agreed to ship weapons-grade uranium to Iraq - a decision vetoed by the then French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing.
