France Continues to Create Problems for Everyone

France seems to be in the snowballing process of continuing to create problems for itself, for the EU and for NATO.

Mark Beunderman at the EU Observer writes on April 3, 2006 that:

"Luxembourg's prime minister Jean-Claude Juncker has attacked the European Commission over its stance that France is being protectionist about it energy sector, amid fresh reports that Brussels will this week take legal action against Paris in other sectors....

"It is very uncontroversial in the commission and there is a general agreement that the French have broken EU rules," said an EU official according to the International Herald Tribune."

Lucia Kubosova at the EU Observer writes on April 3, 2006 that:

"NATO is considering creating closer military links with countries like Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand or even Japan and South Korea, in an initiative pushed by the US but opposed by France....
France is uneasy about the idea as it fears it would further strengthen the US position in the alliance."

Indymedia.org writes about recent events in France as follows:

"Since the start of March, protests, occupations and direct action against the new CPE employment law in France have been increasing, with university and school students leading the dissent. Railways have been blockaded, airports disrupted, and up to two thirds of France's universities have been occupied or disrupted, as well as many schools. Clashes with police have occured throughout the country."

Nothing, and absolutley nothing, in the France of today serves as a model for the EU or any other country or union in any way.
