Recall it was Chirac and Schroeder who wanted Saddam to remain in power (oil-for-profit). This is a classic case of reciprocity in action!

ken5050: I believe this is correct. While the Dutch public were voting 'no', the 'parliament' of Latvia, voted 'yes', 71 to 5 in favour of the E.U. charter.

To be adopted, the E.U. Constitution must be approved by all 25 countries in the bloc, which began 53 years ago as a six-member economic grouping. Latvia was the tenth country to approve the document.

Many people who voted against the charter in France and the Netherlands cited fear that their nations would be submerged in a European super-state at the price of their heritage and traditions. Margret Thatcher stated prior to being sold out by her own party, and I am paraphrasing - 'Relinquishing the Pound is tantamount to giving up our national sovereignty to them' (Germany). She was right on target, but back stabbing pro-E.U. Tories had other ideas, which hopefully will never see the light of day.

Isn't that the objective of the one worlders?

That and the ability to counteract the dreaded United States of America with their own version of the United States of Europia?

Let me softly toss out something to you both for a reaction. Hate, or love, Chirac, everyone admits he is a smooth, shrewd pol, and a survivor. He had the chocie of either a national plebiscite for the EU document, or having the legislature ratify it..which would have been automatic. I'v read much of the commentary on the French process, and I haven't yet seen any comments upon perhaps Chirac really wanted it to fail?..

Chirac's and Schroeder's political careers are over. Schroeder will lose, rather handily, when he stands for re-election as Chancellor of Germany later this year, and Chirac just saw his chances for a third term as President of France go up in smoke (the next presidential election in France will be in May of 2007). I should add that Chirac also just saw his dream job of President of the European Union vanish, his one opportunity to stand toe-to-toe with the President of the United States. Sorry Jacque, sit down and shut up, you arrogant bonehead idiot.
