Not since Jean Reno was The Professional has a Frenchman been such a badass. Sarkozy says that Europe is helping Greece or France is out of the European Union. And I completely get his point. You guys are sharing currency. Failure of one means the failure of Europe. Germany is reluctant since they'll have to front a lot of money but so will France. A Union isn't just a union-when-things-are-going-well. It's a union-when-things-are-going-bad as well. I'm throwing up a little in my mouth as I'm typing this, but we could learn quite a bit about being a nation from France's example here. Those European nations are either a Union or they're not, and Sarkozy wants no part of it if they're not.
