Chirac KO's Bush offer

And this is who our supposed ally is. Kerry would actually want to work with this backstabbing asshole. He won;t meeet with Alawi, but he will meet with Arafat. With allies like this who needs enemies
Chirac KO's Bush offer By BRIAN FLYNN and NIC CECIL

GEORGE Bush yesterday offered an olive branch to hostile European leaders — but was snubbed by the French President.

Referring to divisions over the Iraq war, the re-elected US leader said: “Whatever our past disagreements, we share a common enemy. I will continue to reach out to our partners in the EU.”

Mr Bush also said he will use his new muscle to defeat terrorism. He said: “I earned political capital in the election and I intend to spend it.”

But French President Jacques Chirac — dubbed Le Worm — was doing his best to scupper bridge-building.

He will snub a meeting with Iraqi PM Iyad Allawi in Brussels today. It is a sleight aimed at Mr Bush and Tony Blair, who back Mr Allawi.

Chirac — who tried to stop the war to topple Saddam Hussein — will leave Brussels before the new Iraqi leader arrives.

However Chirac DID find time to visit Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in hospital yesterday
