Bush vs Chirac, and the Turks

At the NATO summit, George W. Bush made time for a demarche on the subject of Turkish membership of the EU, which angered Jacques Chirac. Chirac responded that

“It’s as if I was advising the US on how they should manage their relations with Mexico.”

Indeed. I am sure both the Turks and the French conservatives I am sure he was thinking of will appreciate the analogy. France = the US, Turkey = Mexico. So you’re all dirty thieving wetbacks. How communautaire and solidariste.
