Saved by the fighting Frogs -- By Wesley Pruden, The Washington Times

French President Francois Hollande            Asssociated Press photoSaved by the surrender monkeys. We must put away the insults and abuse of the French. They summoned the backbone at Geneva, where the tough guys of the West were trying to cut a deal with Iran to put the ayatollahs' nuclear weapons program in mothballs.

Barack Obama and David Cameron, the Conservative British prime minister — often sneered at by the French as "the Anglo-Saxons" — were in fact ready to sign whatever stray piece of paper blew over the transom and settled down before them, and it was the French who said no, and said it loud for the needed emphasis. So who are the surrender monkeys now?

Secretary of State John Kerry thought he had a deal to warm the cockles of the heart of anyone who was ever charmed by the sound of the Muslim call to evening prayer — described by Mr. Obama as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset" — but it was a deal to chill the blood of anyone in the West who isn't ready to go to sleep.

The sucker deal that collapsed in the face of French resistance would have allowed Iran to continue enriching uranium, to get on with a plutonium reactor to produce weapons-grade nuclear fuel, to build an unlimited number of the centrifuges crucial to developing nuclear weapons, and to get instant relief from the crippling financial sanctions that have the ayatollahs in Tehran pleading for mercy. It's that plutonium reactor that was the sticking point. Everyone but the French was ready to cave.

In return, the West would get only promises, promises to not do all the things that it could resume doing whenever it suited them. Mr. Obama loves words. He loves to say them, hear them, fondle them, sniff them, taste them, and then forget them. He wouldn't expect the promises from the Iranians to mean anything more than his own promises. Fortunately, for once, the French do.
