Bush And Chirac Meet

Bush and Chirac Meet, Find Common Ground in Call for Free Lebanon

Paris ( -- President Bush and French President Jacques Chirac found common ground Monday night at a dinner meeting in Brussels, jointly calling for an immediate Syrian troop withdrawal from Lebanon.

The two leaders, whose views on Iraq and other issues have been poles apart, condemned last week's assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and called for a United Nations investigation into the killing.

The U.S. has not blamed Syria directly for the bomb blast that killed Hariri -- a critic of the Syrian presence -- but Washington recalled its ambassador from Damascus and again condemned Syria's domination of its small neighbor.

In a joint statement released by the White House, Bush and Chirac called for "full and immediate implementation" of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1559, which requires Syria to withdraw its 14,000 troops and stop interfering in Lebanon's internal affairs.

The working dinner was seen as a major step toward healing strained relations between the two administrations after France became the most vocal opponent of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

As the two leaders faced the press before dinner at the American ambassador's residence in Brussels, Bush quipped that he had chosen to have his first dinner in Europe since his re-election with Chirac to show the importance of their relationship.

"Every time I meet with Jacques, he's got good advice. And I'm looking forward to listening to you," Bush told his guest.

In hosting a dinner in Brussels for the French president, the two leaders were meeting "halfway," said Fraser Cameron, director of studies at the European Policy Center in Brussels.
Chirac is a strange one. He agrees to get involved in Afghanistan, then agrees to get involved in Lebanon who just happen to have popped into this mess all of the sudden, (Thanks to Syria), yet disagrees to get involved in Iraq, probably because he knew if we got in there and got ahold to some "Interesting" paperwork he knew he would be implicated in helping Saddam keep his horendous regime going for oil and money (And some claim we were in it for oil oh brother). And afraid of getting exposed in the fraud between him, Germany, Russia, and the United Nations.
Is This A Thaw? Chirac trying to make nicey nicey? Or Chirac knows he blew it by not getting involved in Iraq and trying to save his butt when all heck brakes lose as we learn more about the UN and the blood money?
